@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.
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?
Looks like the #FFXIV EU servers will be down all day Thursday for the pre-Shadowbringers patch. It's nearly here!
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.
My personal E3 highlights:
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
I had a blast talking with KingsleyMac and Cyn tonight about Destiny on The Guardian Hub http://www.theguardianhub.com
It was weird to be on a show without a guy screaming about the game and a disappointed Brit.
For that, you need Two Titans and a Hunter at https://twotitansandahunter.podbean.com/
More Destiny is always better. Listen to both shows and leave iTunes reviews and tell them peroty sent you.
Equilinox - cute little simulation game. Just wondering how long until I get to the meerkats. :D https://nerdybookahs.wordpress.com/2019/06/08/screenshot-saturday-equilinox/
I thought I’d sneak in one #FFXIV alliance raid before bed last night, and fired up the Duty roulette.
And got Dun Caith on my newbie healer.
For everyone that died repeatedly and got a massive repair bill: I’m so sorry.
Still cleared it though!
