Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward and Stormblood
In this episode:
- Last week, we talked about just how
awesome FFXIV was in general, trying to get you to give it a shot
if you haven't. This week, we dive deep into the two expansions
that have been released over the years and how they affected our
enjoyment of the game (it was all positive), and how we experienced
- Both of us came in at the very end of
a previous expansion and played through the patch content and into
the new stuff that was being released. Only, we did it for
different content. Void played straight through 2.0-3.0, and I went
through 3.0 into 4.0. The fun part is how that it made us have
different overall perspectives of the quality of that content. Good
- We talk about the characters who die
that we love, the characters who didn't die that we want to, and
the characters who really make the game worth playing for us. This
is, after all, a Final Fantasy game first and an MMO second.
- Warriors of Darkness? More like "Give
me MORE-iors of Darkness, am I right?" #hahahapuntastic
- One thing we didn't mention in the
previous cast was just how this being a subscription MMO impacts
our playstyles. We generally don't do sub MMOs, and this one locked
us in for 90 days each, at least. But for very different reasons.
We don't necessarily want this to be a F2P game because the content
is set up so that we can sub and unsub and still feel compelled to
come back later when they're is additional stuff to enjoy having
been patched in.
- Beej plays more Final Fantasy games
on his phone and makes progress on the Mistborn books.
- Void picked up Splatoon 2 for the
Nintendo Switch and spent some time with the Destiny 2 Beta.
