It's an analogy. If you disagree with my analogy, I understand where you're coming from. I don't understand why it would actually piss you off, however, seeing as it's such a minor disagreement.

The reason I was mistaken on Dragon Song was because G1 and I had a lot of advance knowledge on the game that looked promising. After the newness of a new Lunar game wore off, and it was clear that the game was executed poorly, I developed a different opinion.
Now, I don't understand why you want to point out that I changed my opinion on the game as a bad thing, but it's your prerogative to interpret it however you wish. I notice that you do tend to deal in absolutes: something is either definitely
one way, or definitely
another way. Now, I have a nuanced opinion of the game (as mentioned in other threads), so I can see why you could interpret it negatively considering your stated preference for absolutes.

Know which way the wind blows - Negative (reference to farting?) Also I've never heard this one.
I was reading neogaf and Victor Ireland said that the translation is literal to a fault. And you know what? I completely agree.
Lunar Eclipse wrote:But the basis for your entire argument is your personal ignorance of the use of wind in English metaphorical language, which in itself is irrelevant when so many English speakers here are telling you that they have heard it used in such a context before. It's like claiming a word doesn't exist in English just because you haven't heard it before. And I believe that when Vic said it was literal to a fault, he was referring specifically to the opening song.
Quoting Lunar Eclipse for emphasis. I can't state it any better than he has.
Lastly, I've been taking extra measures to respond to you calmly and clearly, despite your continued insults. I recommend you do the same; I'd greatly appreciate it. KF
