I know it may seem like Otome games are thriving because so many English localizations have been picked up, but you know what, they are not. Most companies have gone MIA, are releasing ports of old games (most of which I have already played) or they’re focusing on their mobile section because GACHA$$$ games make the most money as people are apparently that gullible. Hell even Otomate just announced a fandisk for Code Realize that’s gonna be a simultaneous PS4/PSVita release signaling there’s a possibility otome games are moving to PS4 after all. A custom made PS4 with the C:R engraving on it signifies this even further. Regardless of what may happen, even though I still play otome games on the side, I’ve been slogging the same game for a month now and even when I review it, I only have 2 other games left on my plate (one of which is a shitty half assed Matsu game I wish I didn’t waste money on.)
With that in mind I’ve decided to bring back FFXIV blogging! My focus and goal is mostly to show off various weapons, glamors and scenery that I take with reshade and gpose. Gpose is a feature in ffxiv where you can adjust lighting, effects and camera angles specifically for taking screenshots. In otherwords, the game makers clearly know what the big attraction for casual players is!
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.
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!
