@gazimoff The reason why I call out narrative heavy lifting is because I’m a firm believer in “play it, don’t say it”. Video games are interactive entertainment, and going heavy on early cutscenes pulls away from that.
I’m massively enjoying my time in #FFXIV Shadowbringers so far.
Yes, there’s a fair bit of narrative heavy lifting in the beginning, but it doesn’t feel like it’s overdone. Gritty, but very entertaining.
@makothemiqo Agreed! I'm off on a business trip tomorrow, but I'll look to get something set up this week!
So, the terms for appearing on the joinmastoson.org server list have been updated, and now require adherence to a covenant (https://joinmastodon.org/covenant)
We comply with most of these, which is great! Is this something you'd like me to pursue?
@belghast Indeed. There seems to be a great many prods to get people to spend money, and not many ways to encourage them to play.
Looks like the #FFXIV EU servers will be down all day Thursday for the pre-Shadowbringers patch. It's nearly here!
@Aywren Wow, huge congrats! That's a monumental effort :)
FFXIV: All Job Quests FINALLY Complete! https://aywren.com/2019/06/21/ffxiv-all-job-quests-finally-complete #FFXIV
Bloodstained Release Thoughts - I spend a large chunk of my birthday playing this game and it has lived up to all of my hopes for it.
Chocobo Caveat Emptor - Nexus weapon nonsense in #FFXIV and a word of warning about the extremely poorly designed Fat Black Chocobo Mount Amazon promotion.
@pyra Aye, just need to find some people to have ramen with now :)
@makothemiqo It's definitely worth it, and the MSQ through Heavensward is soooooo good!
@Sulaco Yeah, I'm super hyped for it too! I managed to finishe the MSQ, so now I'm just working on clearing down my backlog to free up space in the journal. That and get a few more gear upgrades while I still can!
My personal E3 highlights:
@pyra Yeah, I've tried to use this but , after some research, I found out it was US only. Apparently the codes can't be redeemed in EU :(
SE and Amazon are doing a #FFXIV promotion. (Unfortunately this seems to only apply to NA folks. CA folks have to pay extra.) Must be a qualifying digital game purchase of $19.99 or more. The code will be emailed to you. Digital Time Cards DO apply. Qualifying purchases will have "Black Fat Chocobo DLC" listed under it. And it will also tell you if it qualifies when reviewing your order.

I'd just like to thank an old friend, as they did a midsummer faire sometime last year and the stall idea was heavily inspired by that. Thanks Calamity Janine.
New tanking glamour in preparation for Shadowbringers. Out of the way, edge-lords. #FFXIV
