What Can We Expect from World of Final Fantasy Maxima?

What Can We Expect from World of Final Fantasy Maxima?

World of Final Fantasy was my first real experience with the Final Fantasy series. I fell in love almost as soon as I saw it; everything about it was adorable, from the character design to the Pokémon-meets-Chiquita-Banana combat style.

It didn’t take me long at all to finish the main story. Which, by the way, broke my heart completely.

Today, World of Final Fantasy Maxima hits the shelves. It’s the first real update the game has gotten since its release in 2016—and it’s exciting for a few reasons! Continue reading “What Can We Expect from World of Final Fantasy Maxima?”

Behind My Mysterious Obsession with Archers

Behind My Mysterious Obsession with Archers

When I was about 10 years old, I decided to go to horse summer camp.

It was a really weird decision, given my complete dislike (and more-than-mild fear) of horses, but hey, my friend was going, and I was 10, so there you go.

The best memory I have of going to that camp (which, by the way, was a Christian camp, so that was fun for awkward, agnostic child me) was the archery range. Continue reading “Behind My Mysterious Obsession with Archers”

What I Think of Patch 4.4 So Far

Last week, I had a nasty surprise on Monday morning. I went to log into Final Fantasy XIV, like I do every morning before work—and I couldn’t.

I had no one to blame but myself; I’d known there was maintenance coming, but I hadn’t been reading the handy notes that Square Enix had been putting up every time I logged in.

They tried to warn me; I just wasn’t having any of it. Continue reading “What I Think of Patch 4.4 So Far”

The Psychology of Online Characters

The Psychology of Online Characters

About a week and a half ago, I walked into work, just like any other day. It was 8:36 a.m., I was a few minutes late, and I was eager for a coffee from the magical machine that makes more varieties than you can shake a mug at.

There was just one teensy little thing that was different that day.

I was sassy.

Okay, so this wasn’t entirely out of the ordinary. As my poor coworker (yes, the Beyonce one from the other week) can attest, I usually have some level of sass in my everyday conversations. Continue reading “The Psychology of Online Characters”

The FFXIV Companion App: A Girly Geek Review

The FFXIV Companion App: A Girly Geek Review

Okay. At this point, I’m just going to suck it up and admit it: I may be mildly obsessed with Final Fantasy XIV.

A few months ago, in a haze of sleepiness and coffee deprivation, I saw a news item on the Lodestone for Final Fantasy XIV Online GO and got far too excited.

It was supposed to be an app in the style of Pokémon GO, except instead of catching Pokémon, you could take your gathering classes outside to find some rare materials and goodies. Continue reading “The FFXIV Companion App: A Girly Geek Review”
