#375581 Does Square Enix Deserve Us As Fans

Posted by Spikan on 20 January 2014 - 11:01 PM

VIII? Trashed by the localization company.

Dialogue-wise, our version was actually very similar to what Japan got I believe, minus the spell name changes, which I will never get why people $#!&@ed about so much. Also we got voice acting and orchestrated music. Those are two REALLY nice touches and big pluses.

#375505 Does Square Enix Deserve Us As Fans

I don't think people here understand the costs of localizing games (especially ones as text-heavy as VII) and the business risks of doing such a thing. They're a business, they aren't your mommy guys.

 

I don't think you understand the problem most of us have. It isn't as much as we want games, hell, I'd be okay knowing we aren't getting a game. The problem is we want to know something. And we aren't being told anything.

 

 

 

 

I wouldn't say "treated like Final Fantasy fans" the way you're saying it. It's just that they're more likely to get games localized. I'm aware of the poor quality that recent FF games have and for fans it's not so much about wanting games as it is wanting quality games. We know DQ games are quality and that's why we want as many as FF fans are getting. It's about wanting out fandom to be acknowledged the way SE acknowledges FF fans.

By treated like "Final Fantasy fans" I am saying people here expect a ton of marketing, much earlier release dates, ALL of the games to be localized (including spin-offs), Collector's Editions, etc.

I don't agree with him either but I think that's enough of that.

How can you defend Square Enix as it stands currently?

We haven't had -one damn word- about DQ, the series we're all here for, since Joker 2. :|

 

 

DQX? Silence. DQX Wii U? Silence. DQX PC? Silence. DQ7? Silence. Terry? Silence. Slime 3? Silence. DQM2? Silence.

 

 

It's pretty obvious we're just a bunch of Kingdom Hearts and crappy FF sequel lovers, to them. :|

Like I said "acting like spoiled entitled children".

 

No, it's bad business practice.

Honestly, the topic should be "Do the fans deserve Square-Enix?"

It doesn't really work in the inverse. I see your point about the whining, but SE is a pretty shitty company in terms of business practices, no question.

At this point it doesn't feel as much like the question is does Square Enix deserve us as fans, as it is does Square Enix even WANT fans? They haven't made a good business move in the longest time and their fanbase understanding is... entirely nonexistant.

Welcome to the den!

 

I didn't make an intro post until a month after I'd joined because I'd just never noticed the subforum for it.

#371870 Commercials You Hate

Posted by Spikan on 20 November 2013 - 10:25 AM

Any and every adult swim show advertisement. The bumps aren't funny, the live shows aren't funny,whoever directed that Heart She Holler commercial with the blood spewing everywhere should be strangled. Adult swim, stop.

#371159 Major Battles in Games that Made You Rage?

Posted by Spikan on 03 November 2013 - 01:23 PM

I'm not much a game rager but Four Kings in Dark Souls damn near got me there.

 

Not even a challenge, that's just a poorly designed boss. It's based around the idea that you can't not take damage and really just need to try and kill them faster than they kill you. You have to outdamage each one of them because when another king appears isn't based on health, it's based on time. And as the fight goes on even though it's called the FOUR kings, more than four can spawn. It is just not a fun time.

#368525 Interesting thought

Choice C. Pull the switch and attempt to get the one person off.

There's no need to mention your train-related sex dreams here...

There is no need for any other response. You win this.

#367900 Purge the memberlist of validating/0post folk.

I wouldn't worry about it. This has happened multiple times in the past. What I find funny though is that this is the third time in the last two days that I have encountered spam. First my gmail was getting spammed by someone in Poland, then I started getting shifty emails about failed message sending attempts and package delivery on my yahoo account, now this.

There's nothing worse than when my package fails to deliver.

 

Personally, I hate it when I receive the wrong package.

 

Always an awkward moment.

#363745 Zimmerman trial - The not guilty aftermath.

Posted by Spikan on 13 July 2013 - 09:24 PM

People can dawn hoodies and pose with skittles as much as they want, Zimmerman stood his ground which is completely legal where he lives. He was within his rights.
