New Overwatch Hero: Doomfist

Overwatch has a new hero in the mix today, Doomfist. I have not got the chance to test him out for myself yet, but I already know I will be staying with my current favorites, McCree with backup choices of D.Va, Ana and Tracer. I’m still looking forward to getting to try this new hero […]

2 day Final Fantasy XIV North American server transfers

Final Fantasy XIV is going down tonight while they move the servers for North America. I’ve got all my crops in the gardens harvested so will not lose anything, also have my airship back out on a 48 hour tour of the Diadem.

I almost forgot that I needed to check my gardens in Final Fantasy XIV today, logged in to find a purplish haze coming off the krakka roots. Yikes. All plants tended to, however, and I harvested and replanted my shards. My goal is maxed out shards of every type kept in the freecompany chest for […]

Gamer Journal: Shiva Pony!

I was just lazying about on Tris’tan and ended up joining a late night Shiva pony farm. It was not easy getting members for it at the time it was formed, but we finally got 5 people who did not drop out after a few moments of waiting for the party to fill.

As usual […]

I got the DLC for the Amazon order. The outfit is nice and the cloud is rather cool looking. The cloud is not anything I would use in character, well.. I might on Nymandus, but he’d be the only one that could pull it off if even he could. The bo might just become Tris’tan’s […]
