Developer Chat

Post by PopnFresh » Sun Feb 08, 2004 4:29 pm

A cool little chat was posted on Blizzard.com, I guess between the "community manager" and members of fan sites. A lot of cool, miscellanious information. But because all you FF people are freaks, here's probably the #1 highlight:

[GilS.PR] Will there be a variety of fish to catch while fishing? Will there be special items, treasure chests, or SOS bottles that are able to be fished up?


[Katricia] Yes .. we're even planning on having seasonal fish -- and they can tie into quests and other tradeskills.
[Katricia] You can also fish up things like lock boxes, unique armors and other things :)



Whole thing for the non-fishers is here:

Lol, that woulda been awesome... but sometimes the Blizzard fan community scares me... a fansite would almost be inviting the devil into your house.

Thats something I was thinking about. If we got the console FF crowd playing FFXI what would the Warcraft crowd playing WoW be like? Mass idioticy aside and both groups not ever played a mmo before of course.

*shudders*

My god......

I'm not going to log into the game when it comes out until I know someone will spawn in the same town as me and hold me.

Here's a load of shit from the updated FAQ:

Q: Since the game will have a language filter, can we curse/swear as much as we want?
A: Even though there is a language filter, excessive, unsolicited or inappropriate language will not be tolerated.

What the fuck? I obviousy don't curse, but with a filter in place, this policy is complete Munki ass. Does that mean I'd get banned if I literally typed #@$# in between every other word? As far as the filter is concerned, how is that any different than me repeatedly swearing?
