    I think you guys need to do more research.

    The FFXIV EXP system is NOT a "reduction." You get BONUS EXP for 15 hours, then it reverts back to the normal experience rates. There is no "ZOMG 15 HOURS IS OVER I GET NO EXP NAO." Also, each class has its own timer.

    This guy gets payed to do this, and he does not even bother to research things to get his facts strait? really?...... What he "reported" about FFXIV is complete BS, its not a time limit, and it is not shared by the classes, so in all honestly there is no real "limit" unless your trying to grind one class to max level as fast as you can. He needs to get his facts strait before he does his reviews, or find another job.

    So, when is Blair getting his own Naked News show on G4? I'd watch it.

    To clarify, the xp surplus system in FFXIV is based on a certain number of xp and not a specific timeframe. The buffer also resets slowly on its own throughout the week any time you aren't earning xp.

    It doesn't seem like nearly as big of an issue as we all thought it would be. However, SE still hasn't clarified the numbers involved so we won't no for sure until release.

    Blair Herter was awesome. He was a great substitute while Casey Schreiner was away.

    But what's the deal with Square Enix? Are they just out of their minds or what? As someone else put it, the timer is only class based, but still. Coming from a guy who typically plays and levels up a single class (two at the most); that's still absolutely ridiculous. And as Herter said, your paying a subscription fee for this thing. And your going to limit how people want to play the game? They can't be in their right minds.

    And here is the part that floors me: World of Warcraft already has this all figured out! They don't limit the person actually playing the game for extended hours. No, they give the people not playing extra experience when they do play. This way they have a chance to catch up to their friends (whether it actually works or not is a completely different story). And then, the even funnier part is that so many RPGs these days, even single player RPGs; directly copy certain aspects of World of Warcraft. And yet, a popular MMO RPG doesn't? If Square Enix has any sense at all, I guarantee all you fan boys that they'll change this to something more attuned to World of Warcraft prior to release. You can count on it.

    "Robt. Juster
    we're working on it. What kind of web show would you like to see from Blair?"

    @ Robt. Juster:

    Maybe a show about memes. How about a show on the best bars in the US?(I am not a drinker, but Blair seems to enjoy it.

    Dear God never let him do that again! I would rather have my finger nails pulled and my Testicles smashed in a screen door then have to live through seeing Blair Herter non manly body again. Dude workout or something. Elbow curls at the bar do not count.

    Next time you're going to have a host do a slow off camera strip...use Blair BUTLER! Cute idea, but that would have been so much more interesting.

    I'm not usually a fan, but okay Casey, you win this time. Well played sir. I'm just glad they didn't have Morgan do it. After she complained about the night elf dancer in SC2, and then made her entire Metroid: Other M review about women not getting respect, I have officially written her off as old and in the way.
