I'm still loosely following the updates they're doing from time to time and my feelings towards them is generally positive. I do want to give this game another try in the future when it's "ready".

Although you have to wonder how long the game is going to be in the red. The fact they are still working on it and getting almost no revenue is pretty dangerous.
Yeah, I dunno. I mean, it's Square Enix it would (maybe) be safe to assume have the cash reserves to be literally bleeding money on this for a bit. It's certainly an, um, interesting scenario to say the least.


They're counting on the PS3 release giving them a second chance.  FFXI was the most profitable venture in Square Enix's history, and they were banking on XIV being successful.  They're not going to give up on it just yet.  There's a reason why there are no reviews for FFXIV in Japan (all gaming publications there have to kiss Square Enix's ass).  The PS3 release presents an opportunity to portray nothing but positive commentary, which may help the PC release recover, at least in Japan anyway.
heh, makes perfect sense in that sort of context.

Wow, what an amazing thread.  All of you need to tone it down.  Every single one of you.

Interesting, that all these other guys can swear around and be nasty to each other but I can't....

If it gets too heated they won't be immune, but you've bumped the thread after weeks of dormancy with incendiary posts, twice. There may not have been this nastiness now if you didn't (see: the spunoff CIVIL discussion), and swearing's your own hangup, not something in and of itself we're dinging you for.

Datastorm. I will say this once, and once only.

Shut the fuck up.

You lost the moral high ground - if you were ever on it to begin with - when you started insulting people for disliking a game you were pissing yourself over.if they were going into other threads to troll about how much the game sucks, it'd be different. But they're not, now are they?

Everyone, lower your swords. I say we drop this argument and all go on a grand online adventure together on Final Fantasy XIV.

I have some new neighbors and one of the couple is a big FF fan, and loves RPGs in general. He was telling me how before 14 came out he got 2 new PCs so him and his +1 could play it together. Two new gaming PCs and the premium version of 14... poor bastard.

Maybe The Old Republic will be a solid alternative. Though they could've still waited until this year to have more powerful PCs for it.

Tell them about Tera or Guild Wars 2.  Might interest them.
