Good day. I got my Final Fantasy Trading Card Game packs. =D Will have to definitely use Ami Ami again, their shipping fees were low like I've never seen from any Japanese store, and have an excellent selection of all sorts of fan goods. Like the cards. had them, but wouldn't ship them outside of Japan. Fail Amazon.
Was going to prepare for a very long shipping time, too, what with having picked the cheapest option for my cards. Wouldn't have needed to. Even with Easter mucking about with mail, I got my cards in two weeks.

So yeah. Proud owner of the Black and White entry packs now. Damn Duodecim for introducing me to the cards though, I didn't need another black hole for my money, especially from Square Enix. ;___;
...I even have a copy of V-Jump in the mail, simply because it has that Vaan Pirate Suit costume DLC code for Duodecim and the equivalent card. I'm now even more annoyed by how I didn't manage to snag a copy of that V-Jump issue with Squall, or the Game Japan issue with Vincent, or such stuff. Both came with promo cards. Good ones too. ;____; No hope of getting the tournament-participation promo cards, not even bothering to QQ over them (much).

More cards coming out soon. Drat. I want some booster packs of the original set, preferably a whole box worth of them so I can get that Tidus promo card. >.>

So. What have I been up to lately.
FFs? And sillyboy. Yeah. That's about it. Picked up Final Fantasy XIV a while ago again, and damn if the game hasn't evolved much. Much as in it looks the same, but it sure plays different and has much much more content than back in October when I last played. There's even the 1.18 patch in a week or so (? I think?) that completely revamps the battle system. I'm of the firm opinion that if 1.18 doesn't manage to screw everything up (come revamps the battle system. Entirely. Tons of chance for epic fail there), this game is just about ready to go back to monthly payments.

Now, I'm hungry. Should go buy something to eat, fridge is eeeeemptyyyyy. @__@

Did somebody kidnap the real Square Enix and put an impersonator at its place? The Final Fantasy XIV players' site is actually informative. It has some damn crafting recipes even! o____o;; I was already amazed enough that they're actually fixing guildleves since they'd insisted before they should be on a 48-hour cooldown. But no, they made it less for retail version. Coming from SE, this is kind of blowing my mind. They're listening to players. Did hell freeze over?

Well, it's not like they're perfect. Despite everyone and their mother clamoring for camera-on-arrow-keys, they've still kept it on moving menu cursor. And have a separate set of keys for camera. And yet another separate set for moving. No target-closest-NPC key either. And you still have to press spacebar before you can type anything instead of it automatically opening the chat box when you press any key while not pressing ctrl/alt. They've also still neglected to add hotkeys for inventory/equip screen/etc. From the looks of things, there's still no way to scroll the text/chat log from the keyboard either, or change its tabs. They also still have you idiotically going through the main menu to open doors and treasure chests and such. This sucks pretty hard...
One can only hope the majority of our would-be casuals don't start at launch. The control system is more than enough to turn anyone away unless they're a die-hard fan.

Hee, Edge and his harem. (this be Star Ocean 4 ramble, yes it be) I swear, it really is a harem. There's his girlfriend, the busty elf, the perky catgirl, the clumsy girl (complete with wings), the kid (who really fancies another member of his harem) and then there's the pretty alien boy. =D Plus a robot. Who's out of the count. He's married anyway.

Eh-heh, I guess I should finally post something. =D;; Certainly been much longer than I thought it has been.

Final Fantasy XIV! :O Cut for rambling )

This week was mostly spent waiting for actual scans of the FF14 article and obsessively going over it in an attempt to glean every hint from the info given. xD;

Sunbreeze Festival has started in Final Fantasy XI. I haven't really had the time or interest to even think of participating in the event yet. Tomorrow at the very least I'll play some, since Sunday is mine and Kitty's FF11 day. Last time we played we spent hours and hours just fishing on the Mhaura-Selbina ferry. xD; Well, and killing some select monsters that appear on it. We even got attack by pirates twice, but didn't get the items we need from them. Bah, should go again to wait for more pirate attacks...we've had that particular quest active for ages, it'd be really great to finally get rid of it.

Where does all the time disappear?

Been some time since I properly listened to Nightwish, hasn't it... I don't much like the new singer, but the Once album is pretty damn good. =D

Final Fantasy XIV Online. Oh. Em. Gee. Guess who'll be starting with the launch this time, monthly fees be damned.
