Concern for Tumblr

Posted on February 25, 2022

Tumblr is this weird conglomeration of blogging platform and social media – both which come with their own pros and cons. I knew that Tumblr has been exploring new ways of support the site for quite some time, but it came to light yesterday just how thin a line they are walking.

FFXIV: Things to Do Before Patch 6.1

Posted on February 24, 2022

While I know that Patch 6.1 won’t be dropping until at the earliest sometime in April, I still have a long list of loose ends I’d like to tie up before new content drops.

Increasing Soloablity: FFXIV Doesn’t Want to be a MMO Anymore

Posted on February 22, 2022

It’s one of those old gamer debates – MMO is an MMO because you’re supposed to play with people. That’s what the “massively multiplayer” part of the title means, right?

Blog Redesign – Exploring WordPress Full Site Block Editing

Posted on February 20, 2022

There’s nothing like a new coat of paint – or in this case, a clean new theme – to reinvigorate a blog. I’ve been using the same theme since I moved my blog to WordPress hosting sometime in 2016.

Nintendo Memories – Feeling a Little Better About my Switch Usage

Posted on February 16, 2022

At the end of the last few years, Nintendo sent out a link to a page that provides information on the time you’ve spent playing the Switch. In both 2020 and 2021, this report has made me a little sad because it reminds me how much more I should be getting out of my favorite little system.

Lost Ark: First Impressions

Posted on February 15, 2022

I wasn’t going to play Lost Ark at first since I already had so many games on my plate, but it turns out that the game is quick to pick up and put down, so it actually fits in between playing other games quite well. I don’t need another MMO hanging over me, but the more time I spend with Lost Ark, the more I feel like it’s just something different to do on the side of my main game choices.

Star Stable: Exploring South Hoof & Reaching Level 9!

Posted on February 14, 2022

One of my goals for Star Stable has been to level my rider to 9. This unlocks a city area that I really want to visit, along with a set of Celtic-themed set of gear for my rider and horse. Obviously, I’ve reached that goal over the past weekend (as seen above). However, I had a pleasant experience doing it that I didn’t expect!

A Look at Pokemon Legends Arceus

Posted on February 11, 2022

It’s been a couple weeks since Pokemon Legends Arceus released. I’ve been playing it pretty casually, on and off, during this time. I’ve put about 9 hours in so far, and have just reached the second area of the world.

FFXIV: Alt Declutter and Organization

Posted on February 7, 2022

Have you ever hit a point in a game where you just have TOO MUCH of something – be it inventory, alts, quest backlog, whatever? And you’re feeling stifled by the sheer amount of what you’d need to do to organize it all. Or, at least get it feeling organized enough?

BDO: Debating the Future

Posted on February 2, 2022

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about BDO – it’s also been a while since I truly played BDO in any capacity. I have been logging in every day for daily rewards, but mostly to use loyalty rewards to buy items to awaken my courser.
