    In a good storytelling way at least.

    I'm 12 quests from finishing Stormblood. I was hoping what's her face kept her lost memory or at least gotten together with you know who.
    She did have that touching line as her last words. T.T Made me sad..

    haha on a side note, i find it refreshing when i heard the word bitch a few times. WoW npcs would say/script that. :P

    I gotta admit..i'm really liking this story sometime. After Yshtola beats magnai. The short dialogue that takes place after that. :P
    Major burn!

    According to Phil Spencer at the mostly snorefest xbox event in london when they announced all the FF remasters coming to gamepass they said they are working with Yoshi P to sort out when XIV comes to the xbone. Don't really care myself but i know people who played XI on 360 and were pretty bummed XIV went ps3 only so better late than never i guess?

    Also its so wierd that a sub based mmo is going to be on basically everything bar the switch while WoW is just a pc game still. I genuinely wonder if Blizzard feels like they missed out on that one when they said 'mmos will never be viable on consoles' way back.

    I'll just copy and paste what I said elsewhere about it:

    On one hand, it'll be bringing more players to the game. On the other...it'll inevitably mean more work to ensure that each new content patch is up to scratch and ready to release on an additional platform. Hopefully we won't be bound by any further limitations to the point where we cannot see an update to the character customisation system, for example.

    My main concern is that the development team are already stretched thin and the additional legal work and testing will put an even heavier burden atop their shoulders.

    Counterpoint of course is more people paying them money every month to play.

    If only most of it wasn't funnelled by Sqenix to fund their garbage fad chasing games that mostly stick to asia and get forgotten in a week.

    With the PS5 and Xbox Scarlet being small form factor gaming PCs, it shouldn't be that much harder to make the game work on all three platforms. Now making it work on PS3/PC AND 360 would have been a nightmare.

    They aren't. The same way Ego-shooters aren't. WoW would need significant changes to be.

    Imagine healing a 20man mythic with a controller... yah. Not going to happen. There is a reason why FF-XIV only has 8man raids and controllers are one of them.

    So basically everyone i know got their last crafters 70-80 at Ishgard Restoration which makes me wonder: has this just made levequests post 50 completely redundant?

    I mean i know this is temporary and going to go away at some point but if they keep doing something like this then it makes stuff like the HW,SB and ShB crafting quests and the moogles and Namazu pretty pointless if this kind of system stays around and considering combat leves already went the way of the dodo an expansion ago i wonder if we are even getting them anymore in the next expansion or if a refined delivery system will replace them.

    Walked into the Firmament for the first time, and went "whoa". I never knew Ishgard was this heavily damaged. Yeah, they said in the HW MSQ how the city had been damaged by the heretics, but we never saw that ingame. A shame that this came two expansions after the HW MSQ, and once the restoration is complete, people who played after will once again go "huh? What devastation?".

    - - - Updated - - -

    Anyway, as cool as living in the beloved nation of Ishgard would be, I'm not moving from colorful Shirogane to a dull, concrete colored district. IIRC Ishgard's heavy snow is unnatural, caused by the calamity five years ago. Before the calamity, Coerthas was supposed to be a vibrant green valley. I was hoping that maybe we'd get to see the color palette filter or the environment change. Maybe it will at the end of the reconstruction.

    I think they'll keep Ishgard's snowy aesthetics simply because that's what it's known for within the context of the game. I don't doubt that the housing district will look pleasant enough in its own way, even if the bleak colour palette is embraced again. After all, the city itself looks lovely and colour can emerge in the form of towering spires and stained glass windows.

    I'll be sticking with Mist when it comes to my personal house, though. Where I live is already pretty cold, so Mist is the most unique option of the lot to me. Shirogane is a very close second but my apartment is located there which is enough for me.

    I'm hoping we go to Garlemald in 6.0, though. I'd love a housing district there - especially if the housing district ends up being inspired by Midgar or some such.

    Definitely going to buy an apartment in Ishgard once they are out. Just love the whole area + dragoon by heart so it's Ishgard or bust for me. I once bought a house in Ul'dah, but due to extended breaks from the game, the house was sold in my absence. I still despise this mechanic. As if it wasn't possible in 2019 to expand the housing areas so that everbody can buy (and keep!) a plot.

    Would be fine by me, but I doubt it.
    Who cares, you're doing the same thing anyway.

    So the game awards voting season has rolled around and again and it had me thinking how i honestly cannot name another game i've played this year with a villain as good as Emet Slech was. Like that guy might be my favourite villain in the entire franchise and i think of every big bad in every game i've played this year and they all ended as screaming nightmares like a mmo raid boss but ironically the mmo boss is the one who stuck with me with remember that we once lived and boy is that a testament to the writer for this expansion. Much as i would love her to write the next MSQ i would very much love to see her write FFXVI.

    I still don't get the Best Community Support reward on the Game Awards site and what exactly it can be referring to. Outside the Live Letters Square almost never communicates with it's community. Blizzard doesn't do Livestreams (least not often) yet many of the devs do communicate on Twitter and they've been very communicative with the 8.3 PTR and reacting to community feedback (something that hopefully continues into 9.0). I think the devs interacting with their community is better community support then a Livesteam every other month most of which is just showing people things they'd have seen if FF14 did PTR's.

    Seeing most of the nominations, game awards seem like a farce. I mean "familiy games"? Should have called that "best nintendo switch game". Ridiculous.
