A lot to say about a lot of topics so in no particular oder here’s what I’ve been up to and what’s been going on.
I’ve joined up with a 25 man guild last week looking for a group that actually downs content. In the past I’ve been aiming for smaller 10 man guilds but it never quite worked out. After yet another “we’re so awesome that we’re disbanding” guild last week I said screw it and decided to find myself a raiding home, no matter 10 or 25 mans. It’s funny that when I decided to try out 25s my options opened up a lot.
Anyway, I’ve joined up with the The Blackblades, a guild with a very much hardcore mindset. To be honest it’s a nice change of pace to be yelled at and to stress over performance, I was falling asleep tanking 10 mans.
I got to tryout with them last weekend and down a few bosses I had fought before but not downed, namely Sindragosa(first time!), BloodQueen and Blood council. As for the tryout itself I was told I performed well enough considering my gear, now it remains to be seen if they want to help me out with the gear or not. I know for my part I’m going to farm those badges like crazy this week.
Star Trek Online
I’ve cancelled my subscription. If there was ever a game that needs to go free to play this is it. My urges to play STO come and go without any rational explanation. If it was free to play I could log in when I feel like it but right now I don’t feel my playing habits for this game justify a subscription.
Final Fantasy 14
… is on standby until I get tired of…
Oh my god! This game is like crack. It’s just like the previous titles of the series but this time around they’ve streamlined everything and made everything clear so that you don’t need to read a 400 pages guide to understand how to play. It’s intuitive yet incredibly deep. I’ve lost a lot of time to the “1 more turn” syndrome.
Word of warning if you try this game out. Don’t trust the germans.. ever! They’ll be the nicest people until they get 14 units next to all your cities and then proceed to annihilate you. They’ve done that every single game so far except one where I’ve preemptively nuked every one of their cities.
