ffxiv writing trope, at shadowbringers it becomes goofy imo 

@BestGirlGrace which isn't to say it's bad, definitely the better story writing of an mmo, I'm just still not used to the overall ways anime writing flows, especially in an mmo lol

@BestGirlGrace it's so funny that they keep like, implying that multiple areas are pushing for a commonplace focused government or whatevs, but like that's as far as it ever goes, just stating that somewhere is working on pushing their government to reach that sort of thing, and then there's the on again off again sultana dealio.. the whole game just feels like, "the political farces you are used to but now with magic"

@BestGirlGrace the duality of power in this game sure is comedic to a fault at times.

we have GOOD king that does EVERYTHING for his people and is selfless against VILLAIN king with..uh..
mysterious.. magic powers.. that forces people into servitude.. yeah that's about it no charisma just powerful magic. not even his usually.

woooah what a shock that the biggest blow to our journey forward has been the tyrant who we have been, for some reason, apparently ignoring all advances of as well as any ways to push back against and just mostly treating as a slight inconvenience until suddenly they do a big attack and we all have to pretend to be shocked he has the power to do an attack of this magnitude.

every time there's a king it's generally a tyrant immediately calling for regicide. (it's like at least once per expansion at this point at least) i always have to stop myself from getting annoyed about the rapid rise in the tyrant's atrocities because i keep forgetting in anime they have to let the bad guys get to their final form and stare wide eyed or whatever for enticing story.

ffxiv shadowbringers intro light spoilers i guess but honestly this game contains multitudes of these kinds of characters 

the crystal exarch is a fucking psychopath what the fuck


why does my boss need me to write an exit strategy and scope of work for quitting a job in which i perform no long term tasks (at least anymore) and are always given to me the day of depending on where help is needed lmao what does that even MEAN

i stand here today saying that cows should glow in the dark so i can admire them at night.

like it kinda feels that the mongrel is the only anime level fem elezen and she's a shorter than possible height with mostly hyur looking features save her ears lol it makes your character look so out of place if you're a normal elezen because you look like a confused yet wholesome parent trying your best to support your very cosplay enthused children and their friends by like, driving everyone to the kugane mall or whatever.

lowkey saddening how much better cosmetic options are on hyur in ffxiv. like the elezen are more or less the same but with elf ears and yet comparing their options the only thing elezen has over hyur is ear shape while also having less face options that also look like alpha tests when compared to hyur. you really just need to make highlander hyur with long ears and maybe blueish skin and they'd look like an updated elezen?

it might help explain elezen being like the least common race i see lol

@nebula wow that sounds entirely on brand for bethesda that's great lmao

i want a dang ffxiv southern seas shirt so bad im about to blow all my gil on one lmao

I've been greeted with a cat pun like "meowdy" twice so far in ffxiv whilst doing dungeons/raids.

like i know that there is a cat race and everything but that's still twice more than any other game I've played and that has to count for something.

strong desire on my work break to simply continue staring at the wall and zone out dissociating until the work day is over

companies will be like "pwease take time out of your busy life to tell us, for absolutely zero dollars, how we can exploit you better"

it's that time of the year. to once again be reminded that screaming in, at least all first-person horror themed games, is far far too sexual.

what's for lunch? 

@finn ok mom we played the game for 3 hours can we please eat real food i feel weak...
