Final Fantasy XIV’s Stormblood expansion is releasing this week (early access on Friday 16th June) and I am so excited. I’ve been playing FFXIV since 2.0 beta and it’s the only MMO I’ve stuck with for almost three years solidly. With Stormblood releasing, the level cap is increased to 70 and there are two new jobs — Samurai and Red Mage. There’s also a ton of upcoming changes to existing jobs and the battle system. If you want an overview of Stormblood, my friend Mizzteq has put up some great bitesize videos filled with info!
With all that in mind, there are a few ways I’m planning on preparing for FFXIV Stormblood. I thought it would be a good idea to share them with you!
It has been a shameful amount of time since I’ve updated here. In fact, 2016 has ended and we’ve moved quite far into 2017. I thought it would be a good time to come back and talk about what’s been going on in my life. But before that, I’m so sorry to have neglected you for so long!
So much has changed. I will update you on all of that, but also, I will be making some slight changes to Psyche Plays.
Recently I learned about a project Loot Crate is running called “Dream Crate”, where people can create their own dream Loot Crate, no matter how wild and imaginative, and have a chance to have their dream become a reality for a future crate release. I was of course really excited about this, as I have been a monthly subscriber to Loot Crate in the past and will be again now that we’ve moved to somewhere with more reliable postage!
For anyone who isn’t familiar, Loot Crate is a monthly subscription service that provides nerds and gamers with a selection of goodies delivered straight to their door. Each box has a theme and is filled with figurines, clothing and accessories that fit the chosen topic.
I thought about this a lot, as there are a ton of things I’m super passionate about, and I finally came up with the one crate I would love to see released one day: The Nostalgia Crate. When I shared the idea with my fiancé he said I should rename it the “Rad 90s Crate”!
