Final Fantasy XIV for New or Returning Players
May 12th, 2017 by

I’ve spent some time working on a FFXIV guide for beginner players or returning players, which is located here: Getting Started in FFXIV. You all know I love the game, but there is a lot to it which can be confusing or daunting to players who haven’t tried the game – there is depth and […]


Preparing for Stormblood
May 5th, 2017 by

Between workload and some of the recent singleplayer/multiplayer games that I’ve been playing, I’ve fallen out of touch a bit with FFXIV – and that’s a shame.

Horse Breeding Blues (Pinks, Greens), Part II
May 6th, 2016 by

Quick recap of my horse breeding success in Black Desert…or decided lack thereof. My hands are still preventing me from doing any gaming despite the splints and pills, so I’m auto-levelling horses as I work on covers. Tah-dum, tah-dum, tah-dum. After getting my super-fugly red-white-blue horse and the Greenbean, I acquired an even fuglier one […]
