FFXIV: Important Casual Stuff

Posted on March 28

So far, I’ve really enjoyed FFXIV patch 2.2! While other folks have been off challenging Levi, I’ve been doing the important (casual) stuff. You know, like unlocking Ventures, opening my Challenge Log and learning new dances.

Landmark Closed Beta Adventures Begin

Posted on March 27

March 26 kicked off the launch of Closed beta for what was once “EverQuest Next Landmark,” and has ushered in a bunch of big changes. To start, the game’s name has been changed to simply “Landmark” now, which is nice, IMHO. Much easier to type for sure!

FFXIV: Titan Down!

Posted on March 26

Woot! Zuri beat Titan for story mode tonight in FFXIV. I had an understanding team who didn’t mind helping the new folks through. An excellent end to the pre-patch play.

FFXIV: Leveling DPS

Serena: A Non-Spoiler Review

Posted on March 13

Back in January, I caught wind of Serena, a free independently developed game that hearkens back to the adventure games of old. After reading about the controversy surrounding it’s creation, I decided to download it from Steam (it’s truly free), and finally sat down to play it last night.

EverQuest Next Landmark: Alpha Testing Adventures: Expanding Your Claim

Meaningful Story in MMOs: Impressions on Story in GW2 and FFXIV

Posted on March 5

I rarely post about Guild Wars 2 because, well, I have a Tumblr for that. However, my impressions of the last Living Story installment are probably going to be unpopular. I still feel the need to express them, and to discuss the importance of story in MMOs.

FFXIV: Meeting Cid

Posted on March 5

Had a really productive night in FFXIV. Zeb and Tai beat Titan story mode for the first time, thanks to the help of kind guildies!
