I am English and I speak only English, unless you count the 10 or so French words I know. I think people who speak multiple languages are fucking awesome. Having never needed to learn another language (because my native one is so wide spread obviously. Thanks, British colonialism!) it blows my mind to think there are people who speak 3+.
@hailinel: I'll quote it again:"It'll basically be a one-button action, and the AI intuitively outputs an action". That makes it sound like you press X, game does cool thing. I find it odd that you dont get that from that comment.
And nobody is "screeching" or saying that the game is somehow irredeemable because of this comment. They're just saying it sounds shitty. When all we have to go off to gauge how excited we are for a game is some trailers and comments from the developer then we respond accordingly, which is to say "hey, that sounds bad".
@hailinel: I did play ff12, and choosing attacks from a menu is different to pressing x and having the game select attacks for you. There's a level of strategy which gets lost. I mean yeah, we're extrapolating from his comments, but if you think tapping X for the length of a full JRPG with no autonomy in attack selection sounds good then me and you have different ideas of good.
