No matter how hard I try I just look like the stereotypical androgynous teenage pretty boy.

 

Of course maybe I shouldn't be weighing in so much on the topic of hairstyles.

they can do what they like, im all for it.

 

why is a red afro 'retarded', in your words, but this isnt?

 

 

I'm pretty positaive that there will eventually be an afro for roegadyn or highlanders at least as they did the option for a fade hairstyle in beta 2.  More hairstyles are confirmed to be on the way, and you aren't stuck with the hairstyle you chose at launch.  So chin up.

 

Oh and again when you want to change your hairstyle in the game.  You load up the game, and you walk into the city and you find the barber and you get your hairstyle, markings, facial hair all of that changed IN THE GAME.

 

NOT IN A CASH SHOP.    CAN YOU BELIEVE IT????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I didnt even notice there was a barber when i was playing it.

There is not but it will be in a patch to allow people to use the new haiirstyles they are developing.

When we release a game like WoW over there we get rid of content they may not approve of, and add content they can relate to. It's called localizing.

And it suddenly becomes clear.

It is, a SURPRISE!, a Japanese game made by a Japanese company.

 

What do you expect?

 

Do you see the option of Asian faces available on WoW or LoTRO? lol

haha i would never wear a huge red afro, i just didnt understand why someone would be offended by one, with all the 'exotic' hairstyles FF is known for.

 

i love the idea of a barber, they should take it a step further and force you to let your hair 'grow out' before you can get a longer hairstyle.  or

add a wig shop

The problem is Japanese, unlike Chinese and Korean MMOs, do not really care whether westerners play their game or not.
 It was meant to be local for THEM, not for YOU.

 

You just have look at all the hi-end Japanese electronics that they DON'T release overseas and you know what I mean.

odd that they would bother going through a translation process if they didnt 'care' on some level, if even just for the $$.

LOL WHAT?!  Are you serious?

 

Yeah unlike Korean developers who ship half ass localizations of their game, that are different versions from the real game, and don't even get updates at the same rate Square Enix provides worldwide release dates, full (and fantastic) localization, and no region lock.

 

Korean MMO developers need to be paying attention as this is how it is done properly.  I feel sorry for people who play Korean MMO's because they get treated like such second class citizens, it is shameful how little Korean dev studios care about western audiences and how much they isolate them.  I mean when was the last time we even got a Korean MMO before it had started to nosedive in Korea?

It's a Japanese game, expect Japanese style.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

Well at least the worst thing anyone has to complain about is not being able to have a red afro.

This is entirely not true, They are even localizing the data center to be in NA.

Square gets a lot of their money from the western audience, they know it, they respect us, and they want our business.  Not sure where you got this entirely untrue idea. :-(

 

China actually forces North American companies to localize their products to an extreme amount, for instance Iron Man 3 was entirely different when it released in China.  

Square goes to great lengths to take the western audience into account.

The red part that you've mention is irrelevant because the mentality of Koreans and Japanese are totally different.

 

Koreans will do things western way if it can make them western money. Chinese is also starting to do the same with mmos.

 

Japanese just simply don't care about doing things your way at all. They do things the way that THEY feel best. The apply the arts that THEY feel looks best according to THEIR perspective.

 

So of the best MMOs that Japanese have aren't even open to westerners, AT ALL, and have not plans to be localized for you. They opened it to the Eastern countries (they localized it to the Chinese) but not to the west because they don't believe "gaijins" will appreciate it.

 

And from the looks of this thread they seem to be right.

Yes but they are still not westernising the arts and the concept of it.

 

Final Fantasy is probably the only one of the few big Japanese franchise that was localized for the Americans. All the other big ones (such as Gundam, Macross, etc) they simply don't give a shit about western audiences. Yet they do for Chinese and there are fans of those franchises from Europe (French in particular, they love it).

I've never met a single person who played a Korean MMO and said "Boy I'm glad they "westernized" this, it is so much better.  I don't have to worry about the latest content updates AND I get to wait several years before I can even play unless I steal a Korean person's identity.

 

Awesome!

Damn those Japanese with their overly normal looking hair during BETA.

My character doesn't look AMERIKAN enough. Needs to be at least 50lbs overweight and an early onset of male pattern baldness at the tender age of 30.

You know what tells me this game is very good? Other than having played it?

Its post like this. This guys biggest complaint about this game is they dont have afros........

Another guy posted "This games fatal flaw is that the game starts at max lvl"...... He only got to lvl 30.....

someone else complained "The quest were mindless".....

Another "The combat at low levels is tab 1-2-3 and boring"......

 

Several of those complaints arent even truthful, but if these are the best reasons people can come up with as to why they wont be playing this game, then SE has done a hell of a job making a good mmo.

Much better than some of the complaints from other recent mmos.

SWTOR: No endgame. Bad customer support( i experience that one myself)

GW2: No endgame. Level sync in low level areas when you didnt want to. Lengendary weapons where purely for looks?!?! No holy trinity. Your class didnt matter cause everyone could do all jobs.(tank, heal dps)

Something else I really enjoy about FF mmos, is somehow they find away to keep the "unwanted" out of the community. I never came across so many unintelligent people until i started playing Wow. Just standing around listening to public chat in cities I was blown away at the low class of players in the game. I experience the same in SWTOR.

So this guy can keep is red afro and hopefully find something else to play, far,far from me and my friends.
