FFXIV: The Japanese Horror Story Continues!

Posted on June 23

A little over a year ago, I lauded the writers of FFXIV for a series of ongoing events that culminated in a pretty cool Japanese horror story in the game.

FFXIV: Weeping City of Mhach – Two Weeks Later

Posted on June 22

Two weeks ago, I wrote about the Weeping City of Mhach, the new 24-man dungeon that came out in Patch 3.3. Some time has passed, so I wanted to write an update on how these runs are going.

FFXIV: Finishing 2.0 and Busting Down Goals

Posted on June 18

Last night, Zeb, I and a kind FC member, Star, helped Xaa and Vix through the final dungeon of 2.0, where they saw the credits roll and have officially “beat” the original ARR.

E3 Thoughts: Nintendo, Zelda, Ever Oasis

Posted on June 16

I’m not a huge follower of E3, simply because I’m not into the console gaming like some folks. The only console I own (if you don’t count the 3DS) is a Wii U, and that’s not even a year old yet. So the major interest I had in E3 was seeing the reveal of the new Legend of Zelda.

Thank goodness for Moogle Beast Tribe quests. No, really. This was something I didn’t even know that I needed until it was here.

FFXIV: Alexander Gordias & The Aquapolis

Zuri, Xaa and Vix on our new FC Moogle couch!

FFXIV: Wiping City Clear

Posted on June 11

Finally got my first clear on Wiping City on Zuri (but not on Tai). I actually won the roll for those gloves, too, I was surprised because I was in a party with two other Bards and I rolled a 12. I guess neither of them needed gloves, so I got the loot for the week, thankfully. I really didn’t want to have to run that again this week.

FFXIV: Tai’s New Look

Posted on June 9

As expected, I’ve gone back to playing Tai for the new patch and a round at gearing up and clearing content.

FFXIV: The Wiping City of Mhach

Posted on June 8

I’m a little torn on my feelings for the Wiping City of Mhach 24 man raid that came out last night in patch 3.3. I’ll get around to talking about feelings in a while, but let’s go into my first experience with the raid.

NBI2016 – A Gamer is Born

Posted on June 6

Growing up in the 80s, I didn’t have a cell phone or PC or game console. Those things either didn’t exist or didn’t exist in the capacity they do now.

FFXIV: T2 Bard Relic Get!

Posted on June 4

It’s only taken me half a year or so, but I finally finished the dungeon running for the Animated Berimbau.

FFXIV: Patch 3.3 Notes Highlights (IMHO)

Posted on June 3

As always, I’m taking a moment to highlight the things that excite or confuse me from the newest preliminary patch notes.

Stardew Valley: First Fall

Posted on June 2

My first fall in Stardew Valley arrives, and everything turns shades of gold, as expected.

NBI 2016: To Niche or Not To Niche

Posted on June 1

Though this blog is only a few years old, I’ve been blogging a whole lot longer than that. Back when everyone seemed to want a piece of the Problogging pie, and folks imagined making money was as easy as throwing up some ads and posting a few times a week, one buzzword you heard thrown around a lot was “niche blogging.”

June Gaming Goals
