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!
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!
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”→
