#Blaugust 31: Diablo is Fun Again!

Yes, this is post #31, which means that I have finished my Blaugust run. I would like to post a summary of the month, potentially with some interesting conclusions to this grand experiment, but I don’t have the time or inclination to write it today. Suffice to say that this was a lot of fun. The best part was the sense of community it created: I discovered a ton of new bloggers and made some new friends.  Will I be writing every...

#Blaugust 29: And Suddenly.. Too Many Games!

I’ve been struggling to find things to play in my spare time lately. There’s FFXIV, of course, but it has regular maintenance and I like to diversify my gaming. There was the Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC (check out my review here on MMORPG.com), but that was only about 7 hours of gameplay. So I’ve been kind of twiddling my thumbs a bit in my evening leisure time, getting back into SpaceChem and avoiding the 50+ hour...

#Blaugust 23: The “I will never catch up in FFXIV” despair

I’m a day behind in Blaugust posts. :( Anyway, I heard today that the lovely Aggrochat gang just recorded their Heavensward spoiler podcast, and it reminded me to write a post about how I’m eternally behind in FFXIV. I like it! I want to play it! I don’t have much time and everything is heavily gated by (interesting) content! I finished all the 2.0 content about three weeks after Heavensward’s launch, and I...

#Blaugust 5: So You’ve Quit WoW: notes from the other side

(Oh my goodness, for the first time ever I’m actually using a draft from my draft folder. What has Blaugust done?!) This realization is actually quite painful. IDK what could ever fill the hole WoW will leave behind when I eventually stop playing. — Qelric the Qhaleesi (@QelricDK) May 19, 2015 I quit devoting much of my spare time to WoW in 2011. For such a significant decision, it was made pretty spontaneously. I...

#Blaugust 4: FFXIV August To-Do List

While I am enjoying FFXIV still, lately I have felt a bit like I’m just dithering around in Eorzea. To be clear there’s nothing wrong with dithering should you enjoy such a thing, but I’m a goal-oriented player who likes to be working on tasks and ticking things off to-do lists when she’s playing. The most obvious thing for me to work on is the main story quest. I’m level 53.5 at the moment, so there is a...

And the favorite Scion of the Seventh Dawn is…

I’ve written before about how the story in FFXIV involves a lot of nodding, and players of the game will know that the people with whom you nod the most are the Scions of the Seventh Dawn. Without giving away too much of the plot, the Scions are .. basically the Avengers of Eorzea. They are also your main companions during the game, so you get to know your fellow Scions fairly well. Last week I informed Twitter that fancy elf...
