Oh, to not be able to have a PS5 at launch! I shall dry my tears on Cyberpunk 2077 and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. And Mario 3D All Stars. And 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim. And probably the Nier remaster and Monster Hunter Rise.


I pretty much have total faith in FFXVI. Yoshi P producing gives me a fair idea who else he will be enlisting in the project.


Got Gunbreaker to 80 last night. Bodyguard attire didn't suit me so sticking with my current look. I wanted something that was a mix of Seifer, Squall and Lightning. I would have added more belts, but FFVIII was from the time Nomura still had restraint.


Tried Spellbreak. Cute characters. Fun movement skills for a Battle Royale, though its like 42 and not 100 players. Lots of basic BR stuff within it, but some have nice twists. I like the spell fusion elements. Cross platform at launch is a win.


Went to my first MMO wedding this weekend. Guy from my guild, a big Highlander guy, married a carboy with a cotton-candy hair color. I dropped lots pf flower petals on them. This little moogle followed me home.


My copies of Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive I - VI and the first volume of FFXIV Shadowbrings: Art of Reflection - Histories Forsaken. Occams said these XIV art books were amazing. He wasn't kidding. There's just over 300 pages of high quality art in it!


I am now ready to finally level Gunbreaker. Just needed something that felt a bit "whatever" and a bit high school bully. One that gets lost, has leg cramps and thinks her focus is bullshit.


Not gonna lie. I'm not one really affected much by celebrity deaths, but Chadwick Boseman? That one hurts bad. So much passion behind each performance. Felt like he had really only just begun to shine, too.


In my switcg from catgirl to a towering strongwoman, some of my XIV glamours had to change and others did not. Now with one hairstyle to rule them all. Because every job can be hacked with it.


Got the new YoRHa Puppet's Bunker raid chest piece for Monk and Samurai in XIV. My bangs clipped through the collar so I changed the hair.


Freakin' yokai. I have a lovr/hate relationship with this event. Samurai blade from it is cool, though.


Had to add more lit-up windows and doors to my cottage so my house could actually be seen be seen behind the willow trees I added. I also had to rearrange the the trees a lot because I thought it rude they drooped into my neighbor's yard.


I made a Triple Triad card with sticker and frame additions to photo mode.


On vacation. But made sure my old look got a new job as my retainer (NPC that does fetchquests and sells your stuff). Faeona will watch over my house now.


Got tired of being a short catgirl, so now Faeona is Whispering Willow, a 7'3" Roegadyn.


Got tested for covid last week due to a coworker catching it. Test came back negative. 2020 isn't over, though. Gotta keep your guard up.


If you're looking at Carrion for Switch, head over to Limited Run Games. You get an eShop code with a preorder of the physical release.


FFXIV will eventually be free to play up to level 60, including Heavensward content after the 5.3 update in August. Some features will still be disabled, you won't get to make a Viera or Hrothgar, no /tell function, etc. But you get Heavensward and Au Ra.


Ghost of Tsushima has proven to be one of those games where I'll take so many pictures. It's also nice to see so many games of late encourage the player to take time to relax a bit.
