Wow. You guys actually spent a whole day in here without me, just being little dooshes back and forth. Don't you find that to be just a little pathetic? Don't you have lives? Friends? Significant others? Jesus.
Edit: I just saw some of your post counts, and answered my own question. Sweet baby jesus go outside people.- Bushy
Hey, computer janitor: I have a job that allows me access to a computer at work, too. Instead of selling people sh*tty antivirus products in a clip on tie like you, I can use my spare time at work to post here.
Furthermore, this thread was actually getting pretty fun and enjoyable with you gone. Not sure why you had to come back and sh*t in everyone's cheerios, but that seems like something you probably do on a regular basis so I can't say its completely unexpected.
I've got a life, some friends, a fiancee, I've even got Jesus. And yet I still don't mind making time to call you a high-reaching, unrealistic, outlandish, arrogant, pompous, ignorant @#%^wit.
+1 post count, btw.
The performance of an electronic device involves a **** of a lot more than what type of resolution it is capable of displaying. Everyone in the world who isn't a pale, thin, shaky, anti-social, skin-diseased little computer nerd knows that. As I said before, feel free to compare the amount of Wii's sold to the amount of High End gaming PC's sold over the last year, I'll be waiting. Graphical performance is a moot point when you can't even see the game being played. Res means sweet f*ck all to the rest of the world, I know that seems impossible, but it's true. Go get a tan and see it for yourself.
I'm real glad your $2000.00 computer can play Final in 1080p. Believe me when I say you are the only one who cares. Well, you and all the other geeks with uncontrollable body odor. Most people prefer something that works right the first time. And that's PS3, not PC. Mac, not PC. Wii, not PC. Basically, ANYTHING BUT PC. So, yea, PS3 blows an i7/460 out of the water. Sorry if that's your build and I've inadvertantly ****** on the collective graves of your elders by saying so, but frankly after what has been said in this thread I really could give a rats ***. This was never about the supposed technical limitations of the PS3 vs PC, but hey, go grab a PC with 512 ram and a 7800gpu and throw a blu-ray on a 60" and see how it plays, then get back to me.
Questioning my intelligence because a peice of software refuses to install cleanly 99% of the time just makes you look like a sub-human mongoloid. Try typing in "FFXIV wont install" in google and see how many hits you get. It isn't just me.
For someone who allegedly knows a lot about computers, you sure went into a lot of detail about how much you hate "computer nerds". So which is it? Are you intelligent enough to figure out how to use a computer and install a piece of software properly (which might make you a computer nerd too, gasp!) or are you definitely not a computer nerd and ready to admit that the $8/hr Best Buy or wherever pays you to sell things you know nothing about (beyond those awesome protection plans you shill) is about what your limited knowledge is worth anyway?
Seriously, you claim you work in computer sales and that you have free access to computers and have allegedly tried, unsuccessfully (and claim that's totally not any fault of your own) to install FFXIV on TWENTY computers at your work place... and then you later post a whiny rant about "computer nerds"? Or how you think it costs two grand to build a gaming rig? Maybe that's what your sh*tty box store sells them for, but I find it difficult to believe that you can't build a good gaming machine for under a grand and you ALSO think that 20 failed installs has absolutely NO BEARING on your ability to use a computer.
Also, just because I'm a grammar nerd too:
frankly after what has been said in this thread I really could give a rats ***.
"I really could" give a rats *** would mean that you do, in fact, care. If you didn't care, you would have said "couldn't" here.
And SE "Eating Babies" doesn't happen, and never will happen. FFXIV becoming the biggest MMO ever made, however unlikely you may consider it, is still a very real possibility. This is why my thread remains, and all the little negative doom-and-gloom patrol wannabes get deleted. If this is still hard to understand, I wish you the best of luck in the very difficult life that lay ahead of you.
FFXIV becoming the biggest MMO ever made is about as feasible as Luxembourg becoming the biggest country in the world. It's a "very real possibility" as much as leaving the bathroom sink on could flood your city or your child could learn 10 languages on his own before he's six months old.
It's a "possibility" only in the very literal sense of the word. What you are claiming "will happen" in the title has 0.0000000000000000001% chance of happening, at best. You have been faced with countless examples and statistics that explain how horribly unlikely your theoretical scenario is, and all you do is ignore and dismiss the facts that aren't convenient to you (all of them).
Positivity goes a LONG way in this world, when you actually have to grow up and join it you may realize this fact. Most likely not though.
Nice People= Good.
Mean People= Bad.
Man, I can hear you all saying "Urrrgh?" from here. BE NICER. People will isten to you more and not be so quick to dismiss you as an impotent little squeaker who wants nothing more than to tell the world the sky is falling. See this threads existence? That's what we call "Proof".
You really are going to put that in the same post where you included a three paragraph diatribe about "nerds"? I never said there was anything -wrong- with being mean; I'm being a **** to you because you're an idiot and being nice didn't work. But you're actually going to play the "mean people suck" card in the VERY SAME POST where you berate people who know more than you about a field that you allegedly claim to work in? REALLY?
And no, you don't have to know anything about what you sell to be a good salesman. Once again, adults generally know this. You may be privy one day, but I seriously doubt it. However, as a salesman I find knowing what a processor, ram, and a hard drive do I'm pretty much good for selling computers. My bank account agrees with me, anyway. You start talking about L2 cache, FSB, RISC and watch your sale walk out the door. Sales is about people, not the product. In sales, much like in life, if you are NICE and you can actually be a social animal, you will get ahead by leaps and bounds. Keep it up with the ***** little attitude though, I'm sure it's working wonders for all of you.
So you admit that you don't know sh*t about computers? Glad we're past that point. Are you ready to admit that maybe if you DID know a little bit more, FFXIV might have actually worked for you? You can call me a nerd all you want but I wasn't the one that had to ***** with settings and configurations to make FFXIV work. I popped the disk in. It installed. It worked. Three different computers I have done this with three different hardware configurations and it worked three times. Perhaps if you knew half as much as you think you did, it might have worked for you on the first go, eh?
And I edited my post so many times because it had a lot of errors. The day I try to go hide something that I said on a message board from a bunch of ground-zero survivor look-alikes is the day I eat my f*cking shoes.
And after your "don't be mean" rant, you close your post with an offensive 9/11 reference and calling everyone who disagrees with you "ground-zero survivors". Try taking your own advice, kid.
Again, I tried to be nice to you at first but your blithering incompetence lead me to quickly lose patience with you when I realized that you have no idea what the **** you're talking about when it comes to performance of PS3 vs PC -or- when it comes to realistically evaluating the chances of success of a game that has probably had the worst critical reception in MMORPG history.
If you want to be a **** to me since I'm being a **** to you, then I'm fine with that, but you could at least drop the whole "omg you should be nice" that you utter in the same breath as your ad hominem attacks and terrorist references. To this point, you've ignored all proof that FFXIV has less than a snowball's chance in **** of being "the biggest MMO ever made" and countered with, at best, wide theoretical arguments that take gross overspeculation as fact into account, so we've covered that base. You've proven that you know nothing about ANYTHING technically related; no matter how many facts or specs people throw at you to explain why you're wrong, you ignore THAT TOO and insist that PS3 is better because "It just works differently, okay?! You can't understand!"
Having disproven your wild accusations and having been met with nothing but ignorance in this regard, you now resort to ad hominem attacks and slander while in the same breath trying to pretend you're on some high horse that puts you above the pit you're wallowing in. Like I said, if you're going to be an @#%^ because other people are being an @#%^ to you, then fine, take the gloves off and let's just be @#%^s. But stop trying to pretend you're morally superior or that you're being "nice" about any of it and just be the ignorant @#%^ you want to be.
Touching on post count, which we opened the post with: I've been posting on this forum since May 2004. You've been posting here since a couple days ago. I see jackass posters like you come and go. In nearly all cases, I'm nice until the person gives me a reason to be mean, and then I become mean. You have given me a reason to become mean, and in fact, my meanness directed at you is entirely your fault. I have already explained why and how. In addition, I will continue to post on this forum for years to come. You, however, will probably have forgotten about this forum, or just given up on posting here in less than a month. And I'm being SUPER generous with "a month", as I'd be surprised if you were still around in two weeks. So frankly, I couldn't give a rat's *** if you think I'm mean. The internet is a mean place. Grow up and live with it, or get off the internet.
You think I'm being mean? I'll suggest a nicer board to you. http://boards.4chan.org/b/
will be super welcoming to nice guys like you. Go tell them about how FFXIV will be the best game ever made and how the PS3 is better than any PC "even if you pay $2000 for it". I'm sure they'll be super accepting of your opinion.
I'm a very nice person when I'm dealing with people who can understand simple concepts like logic and reason and comparisons. When I deal with a gem like yourself, where you form nothing but blind assertions and make ridiculously unfounded claims with less than a sliver of plausibility to them, I become a mean person.
Once you start understanding why you're wrong, I'll get a lot nicer, I promise. Edited, Mar 12th 2011 4:54pm by Mikhalia
