The honest truth about Final Fantasy XI

I found out that the complete collection of FFXI is available on Steam for $10. What follows are my opinions based on my experiences with the game and its effects on a friend of mine.

(11:50:28 PM) surrealcatalyst: And good god, that’s such a fucking trap
(11:50:37 PM) surrealcatalyst: $10 for FFXI complete on Steam
(11:51:07 PM) surrealcatalyst: That game is part of a series of retaliation attacks for Hiroshima and Nagasakai.
(11:53:25 PM) surrealcatalyst: That game is a syphillis-laden cheese grater sized so that Japanese dicks pass harmlessly through it
(11:53:36 PM) surrealcatalyst: And the Japanese have a fun game of goading foreigners into sticking their dicks in it.
(11:53:58 PM) surrealcatalyst: I had a friend fail out of school playing that game
(11:54:07 PM) surrealcatalyst: Then not move out of the dorm after failing out
(11:54:12 PM) surrealcatalyst: And not tell his parents that he failed out
(11:54:26 PM) surrealcatalyst: While accumulating 375+ character levels in FFXI.
(11:56:34 PM) surrealcatalyst: WoW hasn’t even done that to people I know.

Sony @ TGS 2009

If you anybody keeps up on the big boy game blogs like we do, yall would know that the Tokyo Game Show is going on right now. And as usual there’s some big announcements, while we probably won’t be going nuts on it the way we did for E3, there’s some cool things worth mentioning.

First, a special Final Fantasy XIII themed PS3 with a 250GB hard drive. Sure, the game is coming out for both the PS3 and Xbox360, but I think FF fans always associated the series with the Playstation brand, after FF7 of course. Shipping 12/17 in Japan, no word on if it’ll hit here stateside.

Motion Controller updates. Looks like it’s coming Spring 2010. Not only new games will be utilizing the new tech, but a bunch of older games will be patched with motion control enhancements. Games like Little Big Planet and Resident Evil 5 for example. If handled right, I think this can be a cool peripheral. While not the be all end all interface it is on the Wii, which I never thought was a good idea(and with the amount of time we put into the Wii, proves that correct), it does make for a cool option once in awhile. Not only do you have physical feedback(something that worries me about Natal), but in combination with the Playstation camera(Eye), the interface knows where you are in 3D space. It could lead to some unique gaming experiences….now let’s hope the price is right.
