Rejoining the Blogosphere

Hello Again

It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged regularly. I’ve never stopped gaming, but for some reason Twitter has become the main place that I talk about that part of my life.  I do miss interacting in comments and having a sort of ‘living memoir’ for my gaming experience, so I’ve decided to commit to blogging on here more often.  I don’t really expect to devote time to long-winded prognostications about the industry and where it’s going, but instead just blab about my experiences and thoughts on whatever game(s) I’m currently enjoying. So, hello again!  I feel glad to be home.

Exploring Eorzea

Since Warlords of Draenor launched, World of Warcraft has been my main stomping ground.  At this point, I’ve grown a bit fatigued with the whole thing and have been searching desperately for another MMO to get lost in.  Since Belghast and Jaedia and a smattering of bloggers have found their current home in FFXIV, I decided to join up with them.  The highest I’ve gotten in FFXIV was about 22 or so, just high enough to get my chocobo on my Lalafell White Mage.   This time, I’m going Scholar, so I started with Arcanist and have been having a good time so far.

Every time I peek my head back into FFXIV I am enamored all over again with the look of the world and the charm of the characters and dialogue.  Belghast said something in Free Company chat about how FFXIV is one of the best and deepest games that does a piss poor job of presenting things to players, and I think that’s pretty spot on.  I’m thankful that I have a FC to ask questions of, because things aren’t presented with a pretty bow all the time.

We’ll see how long it lasts, but so far I’m really enjoying myself.

Forge.GG

There’s a new service going around that’s like part social network for gamers, part streaming service called Forge.GG.  I just got my invite today and haven’t tried out the streaming yet, but the service seems slick and the UI is nice. So far, I’m kind of underwhelmed by the quality of the streams that are being uploaded though.  They don’t make the games look all that great, so we’ll see if I stick around.  Feel free to follow me if you’re on Forge!
