Incoherent Thoughts

I...I think Knights of the Crystals (the Square Enix Facebook clicky-game I've been playing since October) has taken over Chrysalis. Most of the traffic to the site is to the KotC section, a good portion of the rest to the FF Trading Card Game section. Along with the addition of complete or almost complete content for these two, my visitor count and page views have skyrocketed. Getting consistently some 100-200 visitors per day (with some days going closer to 500), a good number of which click forward to another page. Better than before in any case. And Facebook is now a major referrer to my site, which means people are sharing the links. This is awesome if you didn't realize.

I think I can pretty safely say I have the best English-language content on the web for both of those (yes, I've been checking periodically), so I'm pretty content with this development.

In case I didn't mention it before here, I added translations of all card text and rules of the game to the FF-TCG section on Chrys. I'm happy people are using it. =D I have a booster pack box of them in the mail (didn't arrive today, baw. Hopefully tomorrow then) in the mail, and am planning to get the Chapter II entry set decks asap. They were only released on the 27th so I haven't had the chance to order them yet.

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. @__@
