Screencaps

Fenrir bike from FF7, got as a bonus for attending fanfest. It fits Choco.

We’ve spent a lot of time in Pagos, before and after fanfest. Tomo had a hard time convincing me to go in, but we decided to finish up so we could do Pyros. Grinding is not my style, although it […]

FFXIV Fanfest, aftermath

coasters and Namazu magnet

With fanfest over, there’s a bit of sadness, and relief. We were super busy the entire time, and expended a lot of energy, plus the time difference was taking its toll. I also missed my kids, but really, we still had an entire day to get through, plus an overnight […]

FFXIV FanFest, Day 2

Saturday morning started off with our bodies reminding us once again that we are from the east coast and 8 am there is 11 am. Unable to go back to sleep, and hungry as heck, we ended up heading to breakfast. Tomo found a buffet across the street that was a lot cheaper, and though […]

FFXIV Fanfest, day 1

Continuing on!

Namazu adventurer!

So we had agreed we’d all meet for breakfast. Tomo and I ended up waking early, thank you body for reminding us that we were from the East Coast and 8 am was actually 11 am. It was probably a good thing because the lines for breakfast were incredibly long. […]

FFXIV FanFest 2018, day Zero (aka, getting there)

I can’t remember exactly what day it was, but sometime in early 2018, Tomo, the husband, decided to jokingly put a gofundme for Fanfest. You see that sort of thing, and I sort of always just laugh. Help me travel to ______, etc, and you sort of wonder if anyone ever gets all the money […]

Stormblood Music

They released the main theme for Final Fantasy XIV: StormBlood. Once again, it is done by the master, Nobuo Uematsu. Entitled “Revolutions”, I think it’s very indicative of the journey about to be undertaken by our hero, the Warrior of Light.

The video contains a lot of StormBlood footage, as well as some Heavansward spoilers.

[…]

A11S video

Team member Takato got the video up for us.

Good first win, even if I did get sacrificed.

We tried A12S for the first time, and my initial reaction is despite echo, fuck this shit.

Horrible terrible death

We attempted Palace of the Dead last night. We started at floor 170. We made it through the Chimera hell of floors 180-189. Then we fought the GodFather. Without being 100% sure of what to do.

We died a terrible and horrible death. Because of rookie mistakes.

Don’t hit the lava bomb away from […]

The Last Guardian

I got this for John for Christmas. From the makers of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, the Last Guardian feels like a blend of the two previous games. It’s amazingly beautiful, as the other two were. It’s one of those games I love to watch others play. Don’t get me wrong, I’d play it […]

Statics and raids

Why is this guy such a jerk??

We’re having a terrible time with static members this year. We’ve gone through quite a few people. This is the problem you get when you aren’t “elite” and don’t commit to 4-5 several hour runs a night, five times a week. We got through a good chunk […]
