I forgot to wear pants

With the flight and being otherwise preoccupied since being back home for the summer, I haven't been playing much of FFXI. But I've realized when I have been playing, playing mage so often makes for terrible action screenshots. I have also realized that FFXI has a lot of.... questionable imagery.

Durinn and friends:
Note the two floating things on Dvergrs.
To pop it you need a STIFFENED TENTACLE.

Events such as Salvage:
How did I forget how to wear pants?
And of course there's Sandworm and tiny worms, but I think you get the point.

If you didn't notice anything wrong in these images, you're probably more innocent than I am. Or the more logical conclusion is that it's not really that wrong unless it's how you want to think about it. In the end, what game DOESN'T have questionable looking monsters and such? But in what other games are we suddenly stripped naked and forget how to wear our clothes, even though they're sitting right in our immediate inventory still?


  1. Well... we are talking about a game that is almost 10 years old here...

  2. You should read the description for White/Black/Red card.

    Or the description the Olla ??? pop gives you.
