I've always hated that "What did you expect?" argument. As if that somehow negates peoples anger/disappointment about something, because they should have expected it.

I could say "what did you expect" to your comment about being surprised that people are still angry over things they were supposed to expect and thus not be angry about.


But I won't. Because it would create a blackhole.

Haha fair enough star.  I wasn't trying to say people shouldn't be mad so to speak, but that it shouldnt be as surprising as I think some people take it as?  I dunno.  I mean it sucks, both companies were great when they started, but then they got bigger, and that always seems to lead to problems.

I see where you are coming from. I mean, people die all the time, but you can't get pissed off about every single death, you gotta move on. I just don't think it can be applied to everything.

People care about what SquareEnix do. Especially here. As gamers and people who love RPGs, we probably invested a lot of emotion and time into the games they used to make. So when people see them do stuff like this, they are crying out so that they may see the harm they are doing, before it is too late.

If this is true none of it is surprising, Japanese Publisher + Western Development seems to end in disaster.  I know by first hand experience lol.

Back when Metroid Prime was being developed, Nintendo Japan were getting all pissy because it "wasn't Metroid." Joke's on them because it was better than Other M.

In conclusion Japanese publishers are fucking wankers.

Want to know the great thing about the biggest name in the RPG business pumping out shit? We as gamers get to give all sorts of games and companies that would've otherwise slipped through our fingers a chance. I don't know about anyone else here, but I have a severely limited budget, both in time and money. If I'm going to plunk any cash down for a game I need to know it's good.

I don't know exactly when it happened, but when did Japan stop being good at making games? I'm so bored with japanese rpgs that I'm playing suikoden II now, a game that's gotta be some 10 to 15 years old. It's like they have a template for making a game these days...

Hero-Heroine
Badass-Goody two shoes-Brooding pessimist
young person aiming for big dreams-Quiet marauder in the wrong place at the wrong time-Ex military
Evil Nation-Evil God-Evil Dictator-Wronged Hero desiring revenge
Antihero-No antihero
Medieval-Current-Futuristic


With this base template, circle one from each line and you're like 50% done with creating a jrpg...no a japanese game theme. I could sell this to SE for like 20 bucks.

TASTY!

Yep, pretty much. Japan had a meeting about it. They decided as a nation to stop making good games just to troll us.

They stopped making good RPGs.  They still make plenty of good games in other genres.

i dont think thats a fair statement. i think the rpg's that are content to appeal to a specific niche are still quite good. its the when they try to appeal to a broader audience that things seem to go wrong. but hey fighting games seem to be making a comeback maybe somewhere down the line rpg's can too.

Oh? It's just RPGs?

Well, I don't know about you but I don't think Japan trying hard enough here. Clearly their heart isn't in it.
