Doing PotD last night has I think finally made RDM "click" for me.
I never really got it before, but... I think I like it (a lot, in fact)? #ffxiv
My favorite part about #ffxiv is that everyone gave the PowerPoint presentation cutscene in the 2.x MSQ so much shit that when they needed to do the same thing again in ShB they... gave Emet-Selch a holodeck PowerPoint instead.
(Also a picture book, a cave wall... yeah ic wut u did dere, game.)
Did a rebuild of my apartment in #ffxiv.
A much "fussier" build than last time. Because I play tall characters, the hardest part with these small spaces is making them "open" enough that I don't constantly clip through walls...
It works! I can use my PS5 controller with #ffxiv on the Mac! No more having to stream the game from my PC via Steam!
So given the #FFXIV crossover quest in FFV was what got me playing again, it feels fitting to come full-circle...
So I hit 80 on DNC about halfway through the ShB storyline, and not wanting to "waste" the leveling XP, it's time to put that on hold while I catch up my old main, SMN.
Been doing it by leveling SCH and... it took me a while to get into the groove of it, but I think I kinda like it?
Also I get to dress like a frumpy librarian, so... #ffxiv
So on the one hand I love that they changed the battle and quest music for #ffxiv SHADOWBRINGERS because it really hits that "you're in an alternate world where everything is sort of familiar but not" note but, more importantly, the is the most Anime In The Late 90s shit I've heard in years and I unironically love it:
ffxiv 4.2 spoilers
... okay the Asahi reveal at the end of Rise of a New Sun was legitimately great. #ffxiv
(It's also the first time I've felt actually kind of "aww, spoilers", since the ENDWALKER cinematic kind of ruins the dude's nice guy shtick.)
All right. One more Trial and then I get to watch the ten thousand hours of cutscenes I'm assuming occur at the end of SB... #ffxiv
I watched a house get sold (?) last night. It was a small plot in Goblet and it'd gone in half an hour, which was a lot faster than I was expecting? So maybe it was a relocation?
The housing market in #ffxiv is kind of fascinating to me because it's one of the only parts of the game that puts players in direct competition with each other for resources. And man people are *bitchy* about it...
