RIP Pangya (again)

The inevitable finally happened and Pangya NA has finally closed its doors. I guess the 5 people who were spending $800 per gacha every 2 weeks finally decided to call it quits (or went bankrupt) so they had no one else to fund their tin can servers. Honestly I haven’t logged in or played pangya in years but hey this blog did originally begin as a Pangya blog and even the domain “breadmasterlee” originated from the google translation of the word パンマステリー (pang mastery).

At this point as far as I know only Pangya Japan and Pangya Thailand are still running because they have an in house development team creating new content. Pangya Korea closed its doors in August of this year.

For those who have a smartphone, I stumbled upon a literal Pangya clone with art by the Koichoco/Imaimo illustrator. A lot of reviewers say it’s a lot like Pangya so you can always get your fix there.

FFXIV: Happy Valentione’s Day!

That’s not a misspell it’s intended to be spelled that way 😉

This year’s event was a lot of fun, love hotel themed furniture and fortunes you can do with your friends or lovers. I did both and I made a video as well!

While we were at it, I forced my husband to get the 5 pack Fantasia too and made him turn into a catboy (*’ノ∀’)ノ

Sometimes I kinda miss his midlander but eh we have plenty of time to return to our former selves lol. Maybe we’ll even turn into potatoes for old times’ sake (though I hate the camera angle of lalafells it’s really awkward.)

Hope everyone has a nice Valentione and Valentine’s day!

FFXIV: Game Diary & Fantasia Mania

So for a while I kinda wanted to blog about my time in FFXIV but I had this impression that everyone associates this blog with otome games (and well honestly – I don’t blame anyone for doing so (´゚ω゚)). I thought about then starting a completely separate blog for FFXIV stuff but then I remembered – this was originally intended to be my game blog..so I guess it would kinda defeat the purpose if I can’t blog about games on it right?? Does anyone remember that I have an MMO game category? (¯―¯٥)  But I know a lot of readers here mainly care to read otome game reviews so to make it a little easier to filter I’ll just preface my FFXIV posts with “FFXIV”! Hopefully that will make things a little cleaner and as usual they will be categorized in the Final Fantasy XIV category. There won’t be a set schedule on when I will make entries but I’d like to post when something interesting happens or there’s a new update etc.  And hopefully this will breathe some life into the blog since my reviews tend to be once or twice a month these days.

With that out of the way I’d like to bring to the attention my FFXIV identity crisis fueled by Fantasia. Fantasia is a cash item you buy for $10 that lets you change your character’s race/gender/appearance. Square Enix knows that most of their players love this stuff, like a bad drug, so they put it on sale for 25% off all month. Sadly I took the bait \(^o^)/ Continue reading “FFXIV: Game Diary & Fantasia Mania”
