Just wanted to make a quick blog post with some random updates for stuff. Mostly to do with streaming and gaming since not much else is going on right now. This’ll be pretty short as I don’t really have anything else to talk about 🙂
So for some general bullshit, I’ve been playing Bravely Default a little bit. I’m about 7 hours into the game and I’m already pretty hooked. This is more-or-less a spiritual successor to FF1-5. There are a lot of similarities. I’m curious why they didn’t just call it Final Fantasy: Bravely Default. Them not doing that kind of leads me to believe they plan on making a full-fledged series out of this one similar to FF. I’m down for that.
I also got to play a bit of Titanfall during the beta. That game is fucking amazing. I haven’t had that much fun with a shooter in a long time. I’m definitely going to grab that on release and play the hell out of it. I streamed a bit of it as well, so you can go to my stream archives to see some beta gameplay. I think they’ll disappear soon though. Not sure :).
In the future I plan on getting involved in some Everquest Next, but right now there isn’t much going on there. Everquest Next Landmark is out, but I’ve never been too great at sandbox stuff. I respect the hell out of the idea though. Have your users create content that they want and put the best of that content in the game? Sounds like a win/win to me. Developers get easy content, players get the content they want because they make it. I’m curious how it’ll work for the actual game though, but excited to see.
Stream wise: We’ve beaten FF4 for the marathon! We were a little bit into FF5 on the PS3 but the PS3’s PSX emulator kept crashing on me when I tried to save. So I’m going to restart that one using ePSXe on my PC to just avoid all that annoyance. So just to give you an idea of what I’m going to use to play the rest of the series: FF5&6 I’ll use ePSXe, FF7&8 I’ll be playing on PC, FF9 I’m not sure yet, FF10&10-2 will be the PS3 HD remakes, FF12 I’ll be playing on a PS2, and FF13, 13-2, and LRFF13 will all be played on my PS3.
In addition to streaming all of the FF titles, I’m also going to start streaming some FF14 soon with a couple of friends. So be prepared for a bit more MMO action :). I also plan to stream a playthrough of the Tales of Symphonia Chronicles (the HD Remake for PS3) starting next week. So that being said, I want to detail exactly when I’ll be streaming. I’ll be streaming beyond this most nights unless something comes up. I’ll always update via Twitter too, so on the nights where I put “Game of my choosing” I’ll say on Twitter what I plan on playing. Right now this will probably be FF14 or Tales of Symphonia.

I also haven’t talked about this before, but I’ve recently in the past couple of months joined a gaming community called Subterfuge Gaming. It is a multigame community that currently has two Wildstar guilds and a League of Legends team. Subterfuge Vanguard and Subterfuge Oddity are our Wildstar guilds. Vanguard is our Hardcore NA based Dominion raiding guild, while Oddity is our casual EU based Exile guild. Both are currently recruiting people for Wildstar. We’re currently a pretty popular community for Wildstar players because we’ve got 2 really popular Wildstar streamers in Tainted, and Zybak as well as a Thursday night Wildstar live show called Late Night Dominion. I help with community recruitment, so if this sounds like something that you’d be interested in feel free to chat me up about it and/or check out the website at: www.SubterfugeGaming.com
That is it for now! Time to stream some FF5 :).
