That dude's a bit of a weenie. Was he really whining because the introductory fight was too hard for him and the run to Camp Bearded Rock was way too long?

Did you watch the video? Pretty sure his complaints were

1. All he could do was attack
2. There was no auto-attack
3. There was an NPC with a huge ax standing next to him doing nothing
4. The fight took so long and involved so little strategy that he said "it's already a grind."

Nothing about the fight is hard... especially since you can't lose it.

And I think his "long runs" complaint fit in quite well with his "copy-pasta" complaint. When all you can do to travel is run, you spend your time looking at the graphics. After a while you realize those graphics are identical.

This guy is so weak it's untrue.

I'm all for enthusiast press, but... he reminds me of a Britain/America's got Talent contestant. Sooo desperate to appear like the real thing.

Reading the thread, I thought people were just being douches by bashing on his "beard". Then I watched the video. Jesus, he needs to shave that monstrosity off of his face NOW. DUDE, IF YOU ARE READING THIS, SHAVE THAT ABOMINATION OFF OF YOUR FACE RIGHT NOW. IT IS THE FACIAL HAIR EQUIVALENT OF FFXIV. GET RID OF IT.

Also, I despise the use of "copy pasta" as if it's good use of critical and insightful language.

He may as well just say "So I liked teh game but then I was all like lolwtf is this? I don't even! omglolol" on camera and take an early shower.

Without sounding like an ******* or a bully (which invariably means I will, but it's not intended)

I got really distracted by his chest. Seriously, watch the video again.

Bad shirt choice or...

I can't take anything he says seriously. Every sound that comes out of his mouth reminds me of that "beard"

I thought so too - shame is it would be cute if it was centered. He really needs to grow the beard out and let a professional do it the first time for him. Then it will be easy for him to maintain.

The review was pretty mild but does echo some of the things I have heard other people say about starting out. I will say that I disagree with one point - getting to camp bearded rock didn't seem all that long a trek to me. Camp skull valley however.....

Lol. I like these reviews, they make me laugh. That being said I still have not played the game as of yet. He addressed what irked me a bit in FFXI - the gigantic zones. So if I was a little annoyed with FFXI then I could only imagine what FFXIV is like. This is one area of the game that will probably never change. Everything else looks fixable.

My favorite part was where he got stuck on the quest where you need to emote, that "gives no clues". How retarded do you have to be to not notice that the text the npc says has the emote in ******* italics within that text?

You have to clap like this! And he couldn't figure out which emote to use...?

I'm thinking he did a lot of the stuff he did in the video intentionally to make it look bad.

Did you watch the video? Did you play the game? The issue is the same in Limsa - it took me literally fifteen minutes + trying to figure out how to placate those stupid rebel pirates with the proper emotes. The clues they give make no sense and I ended up just going through nearly every emote before finding the proper one.

The one in Limsa Lominsa is stupid easy, and the only one that could possibly be confusing is the last one, which is /goodbye. Miner's one is a bit tough, but took me no less than five minutes because I just cycled through the 6 she gave me. You don't even have to remember which ones she tells you because they are in your journal right after. The one I had a lot of trouble with was Gridania, but I did that in OB, so I'm not sure how it is now, or even if they fixed it.

Wow guys, feel good about yourselves? Maybe those of you bashing Fony will be lucky enough one day to have a bunch of people online blasting you for your looks.
