The Final Fantasy XIV Showcase is coming up, and you’re going to need to have some reaction images ready just in case. You know Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, and other obscure social media sites will blow up with people’s reactions. It’s best to have some ready to spam. Of course, if you’ve already been around the internet a few times, then you’ll know these are something you should already have, but we’ve done a favor to those who weren’t prepared to express emotion through relatable imagery.
For The “Uhhh…” Moments:
If you watched the Resident Evil Showcase, then this was probably your face when they announced RE: Verse. It was definitely an “Uhh…” moment, and there’s bound to be a moment in between our ADHD-fueled leg bouncing where we look off-screen, wondering what we just watched.
For The “WTF” Moments:
So we’re just using Emet-Selch for everything? Can anyone really complain about this? I mean, Emet’s face is meme-worthy for almost any occasion. There’s bound to be some moments in the Final Fantasy XIV Showcase where we’re absolutely disgusted with what we’re hearing. Maybe they confirm that they had no real plan for giving Viera the good glam hats. That would cause an insurmountable backlash among the bunny community of FFXIV.
For The Truly Hype Moments:
Despite any expected cringe or disappointing moments, we’re sure 99.9% of the time spent watching the Final Fantasy XIV Showcase will be spent getting hyped at everything.
Summoner rework? HYPE!
Yoshi-P blinking?? HYPE!!
For The “It’s Happening!” Moments:
Don’t get “Hype” and “It’s Happening!” confused. I know they can sometimes go hand-in-hand, and the “It’s Happening!” turns into a period of extended hype most of the time, but “It’s Happening!” is more of an “Aha!” moment. Imagine an announcement from the FFXIV Announcement Showcase that no one saw coming. Everyone’s waiting for expansion news, but what if they completely threw a curveball and announced they’re working on a brand new MMO, and 6.0 would be the last expansion for Final Fantasy XIV? What if they announced they were remaking Final Fantasy XI? Those likely won’t happen (anytime soon) but let’s have some “IT’S HAPPENING!” images ready for any curveballs.
For The “Welp…” Moments:
Maybe the FFXIV Announcement Showcase was underwhelming. Maybe nothing of value was announced. That most likely won’t happen, but we’re putting these here just in case.
The Final Fantasy XIV Announcement Showcase is early in February. Are you watching? Follow GameDom to stay up to date on FFXIV news.
