How to get married in Eorzea.

Step 1: Stand in the weird robot carriage and wait to be turned into chicken nuggets.
Why does she get to hold the flowers? So what, I don't like flowers because I'm a man? And where did all these flying rats come from? What is all this gold sparkle? Does that cost extra? I don't have the gil for this...





Step 2: Attempt to steal the shiny flying rat eggs.
These must be worth something right? I'll just take them when he's not looking. He's probably blind anyway, he doesn't open his eyes...probably constipated. Ate all the wedding cake, didn't even get a slice. I only got married for the cake...bastard.


Step 3: Throw stolen flying rat egg to wife.
Had to do this fast. She's got a weird catching style but as long as it works. We're gonna be FUCKING RICH. She'll put it somewhere safe...like in her underwear. I mean I would but I don't wear underwear. I'm a Ninja, underwear + backflips = tight balls.


Step 4: Confuse flying rats by putting on a strip show on the altar.
We gotta sneak out someway. We'll just have two of the visitors, one male and one female, to strip down and dance at the back. Those bitches love dancing. Who can resist the charm of a tall, pale Au Ra female and the muscular body of...whatever Rayn is... (Hyur? WHY ARE YOU SO BIG, DAMN IT.)

Step 5: Use as many skill effects as possible to give flying rats seizures.
Probably the easiest bit of the whole heist. SPAM THE FUCK OUT OF ALL THE SKILLS THAT PEOPLE USUALLY DISABLE BECAUSE OF THEIR FUCKING OBNOXIOUS DESIGN. Aim to kill at least 4 flying rats. We'll run for the door as soon as we see their mouths start to foam and eyes begin to bleed.


Step 5: Escape on the Chickenmobile. 
But act casual. Don't run out like you just stole a couple of flying rat eggs. Don't make yourself look suspicious. Act calm, ride out as if you just did something simple and boring like... getting married.


Step 6: Go home, put on your criminal suits and reflect on all the evil you just did.
Good thing I practiced my evil laugh.  I'll slip a message to that secret contact of mine. Tell him I got the goods. Tell him to meet me somewhere suspicious like and make sure he's wear shifty clothing. You gotta play the part until the end.

Ruining my life part 76: FF marathon

So I've been playing Final Fantasy XIV a lot recently
Expansion hype!
Finally got to level 60.
Got my final skill, made a gif! 
I sat in my garden until the sun went down
I wanted it to look like a silhouette and it worked I guess.

At the time of recording it was quite late but I wasn't tired.
If this happens I usually do one of two things:
1. Stalk Ms Lycanth and stop her progress by spamming emotes at her while wearing the White Pumpkin helmet.
2. Annoy my neighbours in the housing district.
But neither were possible because everyone was already offline (boo!).

Just as I thought I had nobody to talk with for the rest of the evening
One of my linkshells started playing this "Final Fantasy Quiz"
I had fun by shouting stupid answers at everything but it made me realise
There's a lot about these games that I don't know
Either because I played them while young or...I just haven't played.

So now I'm on a quest to play as many as I can! because I hate my life.
I'm thinking.... all the main titles plus War of the Lions because I fucking love that game.
But not X because I just played the remaster
Or XII because I think I've completed it about 10 times
And XI because that's a MMO and I don't need more than one in my life.
Now to get all of them...

I, II, III, IV, VII, VIII (yuck, ew. eww. EWW.) and IX are on PSP so I guess I can Vita them.

But how do I best play V, VI?
I see V is on the android app store...was it remade anywhere else? Playing on my phone...hmm...
VI is also on the android store, that might have to be the way unless I use a GBA rom.

Someone help with that? 
I plan to play them as fast as possible.
Then maybe rate them out of 7.
Yes I said 7. 10 is far too mainstream.

Now I think about it, this blog post is just a really long way of asking:
"What's the best way of playing FF V and VI?"

Hmm. Well I don't know how to end.
Just accept that this blog post is over.

Sharing the Cool: IRL armour pt.2

(LARGE TEXT BECAUSE SOMEONE SAID THEY LIKED IT LAST TIME).

Anyway, hello peeps.
I made a couple of purchases and so I thought I'd once again, share the cool.
IRL armour, it's clothes....get it? I'm smart now salute me.

Musterbrand is having a massive clearance sale on all Street Fighter themed gear. Up to 70% off.
We're talking hoodies, jackets and shirts.

I bought myself a varsity jacket and a hoodie as this is pretty much my work uniform and all I wear.

I've not bought anything from here before so I can't say anything about the quality.

Happy Shopping.

What newbie, trigger happy mod is deleting my comments.

Speak up now so I can slap you.

 

Edit: This has been resolved. Chris Carter has promised to share all his animal crackers with me and I'll be getting a 4.7% cut of all ad generated revenue.

Info Drop: DMC4 SE and the Digital Curse.

DMC4Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition will be digital-only in the west photo

 Hey,
As you know I don't actually blog. I just saw something interesting.
Earlier on there was a Destructoid post on the DMC4 SE stating that it'll only be digital in the west.
I don't know if this is already widely known but I got an email today with some interesting information.
Apparently the Asian (Thanks for the correction, Luna) edition comes with both English voices and Subs!
If you're on Playstation (Don't know too much about the XBOX) like me the only worry you should have about importing the game over is customs fees.

I've used Play-Asia a good few times now. They have it up for pre order at $33/£22 (not including shipping) so if you're like me and you'd prefer a physical copy of the game then here's an option!

Here's a direct link to the PS4 copy: http://www.play-asia.com/devil-may-cry-4-special-edition-english-japanese-paOS-13-49-en-70-8qt1.html

 

So, that's kinda it.

See ya.

The Trial of the Lycanthrope

The journey long, his breath short.
He finally reaches his destination.
He looks at the towering gates before him
Risen as if he was expected.

He takes a step in, the room flooded with light.
It blinds him as he he walks foreward.
Inconmprehensible treasures surrounding him.
But they aren't what he's come for.
His mission is set.
He walks on, he doesn't falter.

Not like the others.
The ones who stare in awe.
With a steel grip and a stone gaze.
They who have found their prize before.
But they cannont move, frozen in place
Aware of the price they will pay.

He reaches the end of the path.
But not the end of his trial
For there is one final test
But he is prepared.
His work will not be in vain.

He presents the altar with a key.
It doesn't respond. 
An offering must be made.
His soul, split into four.
Four numbers he will never forget.

He waits.
Questioning himself for the first time.
Was this choice the right one?
Can such a sacrifice be made without consequence?

But there was no time for regret.
The pact had been made....

 

The PS4 was his.

Dissidia Final Fantasy News

I'm a big fan of Final Fantasy. I also really loved the Dissidia games for the PSP.
So logging onto the internets to see more news about the upcoming game made my morning.
Now, I'm not a Destructoid writer. I'm sure one of them will pick up on the news and this will become pretty pointless but I'd thought I'd share some things I'm excited about that have been revealed today.

1. This screenshot in particular - first off.
2015-04-10_041617

(Note: Seems like image has been removed by the uploaded. It was a picture of a battle screen and said "For Playstation 4" in the corner. RIP image. So have a pic of 3 heroes).
Look at the top right corner.
In the conference it was said that production of a PS4 title would not start until a year after the arcade games release but have stated that the game is being developed using the "PS4's core system". A few images of what the game would look like on PS4 were shown.

2. Summons are now more than just bravery buffs/debuffs




While it cant be seen to well in point number one, that orange blur is Ifrit. It seems that along with our usual EX bar, the players will charge up a "Summon gauge" which will allow the team to bring in a friendly beast which acts as a 4th team member for a short amount of time. If I've read correctly, summons will prioirtise the enemy you have currently targetted for some massive combo damage.

3. It looks fresh as fuck



As expected, the game is looking really nice. There are some sweet screenshots floating around online. Character information is pretty much stuck in the corners of the screen. This screen shot is of one of the two announced new areas, Mako Reactor which is obviously a FF7 themed map. The other is Cocoon Overworld from 13.

4. Claims to have 50+ playable characters, some to be gotten through later updates.




Ramza from Final Fantasy Tactics has been confirmed to be one of the new characters we'll be seeing. Along with Final Fantasy 14 Main Story character, Y'shtola. I'm a big fan of both of these games so this is pretty much a major thing for me. With 50+ characters it's safe to place bets on your favourite character being added so make your wishlists.

5. Cross Slash is still boss as fuck.




Need I say more?

6. Koei Tecomo (Team Ninja) announces collaboration, multiple costumes planned.



I can't find much on this to be honest. It does make me somewhat excited, customisation is a gaming fetish for me. Only thing better than killing friends is killing friends in style. Although, Team Ninja? Tifa? The second coming of FF7 Hentai?

7. New Trailer kinda makes this whole blog pointless.

 

Let's talk hype in the comments section.

I seem to have broken some type of rule by not posting where I gathered my info so here you go:

Sharing the Cool: IRL armour.

Hey guys,
Not much of a blog to be honest. 
It's just after many coversations with people on the site I think some of you might enjoy this.
I just picked up a really nice Monster Hunter tee from one of my favourite sites,
http://theyetee.com/

Here's the design if you're too lazy to click/don't have any spare gil.

The site usually puts up two shirts for 24 hours for a lower price. If you miss the window they let you buy it the next day at a slightly higher price. The store also has a lot of other gaming/anime themed clothing which is pretty decent. I've ordered a few things from there and can say that the quality of the items is top notch and after various washes I see no fading.


That's pretty much it. I just thought someone might appreciate it.

 

See ya.

How to be unproductive at work.

I'm REALLY into Final Fantasy 14 at the moment. Being at work with no tasks running I decided to look around the little we know about the upcoming Heavensward Expansion.

One of the new classes we'll be getting in the expansion is the Dark Knight, a magic weilding Tank-type class that I personally cant wait for. This is an image of the new Au Ra race in the concept Dark Knight armour....

The white hair...the greatsword...the edgy "hand in front of face" pose....
I saw this and I was sure I'd seen it before...
Then I figured where...

I work at a design company and they use all the adobe software. As an admin, I also have it installed on my machine for troubleshooting purposes. But as I had nothing to do as the office is pretty empty today, I made this terrible edit!

There! I sat there amazed at my second ever photoshop masterpiece!
Then my boss appeared, slapped me around the head and told me to go replace a GPU in a broken machine.

 

And that my friends, is how to be unproductive at work.
