I like how this channel doesn't give number ratings for their reviews, but their honest opinions. That is more valuable to me than some arbitrary number system somebody pulled out of their arse.

+Sync Weaver The key to uncovering the story of Heavensward is to listen to the lyrics in the Dragonsong video. Here is my theory, the dragons and Ishgard were once allies long ago. An Ishgardian woman fell in love with a dragon, they became lovers, and from here were born the first of the Au Ra. This was no ordinary dragon, but someone very high up in dragon society. Possibly Midgardsormr's first born and king of the dragons. Something happened in Ishgard, either religious zealots rose to power or the Ascians meddled to cause chaos, and they hatch a plot to kill the dragon king. The woman, whom we know today as Iceheart, pleaded with her people not to kill him, but they did anyway and this enraged the dragons so much that they will not be satisfied until Ishgard has been reduced to ashes. There is likely more to it but this is what I get from the lyrics of the song alone.

These guys are awesome. On this channel they make real, fully functional replicas of swords and other weapons from videogames, movies and anime. The attention to detail and the craftsmanship they put into all of their pieces is incredible. This is a new group, the previous blacksmith was also very good at what he did.

SE is trying to make all of the Tanks and Healers homogeneous. Meaning, while they each work differently, they are all equally effective and possess comparable abilities. This is to counter a problem where certain jobs are shunned by the player community because of perceived weaknesses and/or lack of effectiveness over others. It isn't as bad in FFXIV as it was in FFXI, but it is there especially among the more elitist endgame players.

A beautiful music video that takes you on a voyage through the different eras of Macross. Set to a rare, hard-to-find version of the song "Angel's Voice" from the Macross Dynamite 7 OST sung by Yoshiki Fukuyama (Basara Nekki) and Mari Iijima (Lynn Minmay).

Mobile is not the future of videogames. It's just an extension of a larger more complex market ecosystem. It isn't going to replace or supplant anything no matter the hype. Console and PC games will always be more popular because there are too many inherent limitations to gaming on cell phone and tablet hardware. Touch is no more the future of game control schemes than Motion Controls, and still can't replace a real gamepad or mouse & keyboard.

And.....Dog's Bollocks is now blocked, like most trolls he is best unheard and forgotten. He was lucky he wasn't reported for harassment the last time he started mouthing off without thinking first. So, I decided to not let it go that far a second time and just block him. Out of sight, and out of my business is where he belongs.

You've likely seen this video, but you didn't see "all" of it. You didn't see what happened after Louisoix teleported everyone to safety when Bahamut unleashed his full might. SE kept this under wraps for a long time, even pulled it down when it showed up on Youtube. Now it's here on their official FFXIV channel for all to see. This video is a cutscene from the finale of the Binding Coil of Bahamut story arc. It was created using SE's Luminous Engine on high-end PC hardware running in "real-time" when it was recorded for the game.

For those unfamiliar with the backstory of FFXIV ARR (these aren't spoilers), Legatus Nael Van Darnus of the Garlean Empire had initiated the Meteor Project to devastate the continent of Eorzea by pulling the lesser moon Dalamud from orbit. This was done against the will of the emperor who wanted to conquer the realm instead. The Warriors of Light fought him in an attempt to end his plot, but the damage had already been done. Legatus Gaius Van Baelsar, who had tried to stop the Darnus's plot, could only watch from a distance on his Magitek airship as the combined Grand Company armies of Ul'dah, Limsa Lominsa, and Gridania took on Darnus's forces at Carteneau Flats. The moon, in truth, was an ancient Allagan prison for the Elder Primal Bahamut. The Sharlayan scholar Louisoix intended to use a summoning ritual, similar to the one used by the beast tribes to summon their Primals, to call upon the Twelve Gods of Eorzea to seal Bahamut away once again. In the original video it looked like that attempt failed, and it wasn't until much later that we finally get to see what actually happened.

A 10 year IT veteran who is now endeavoring to become a novelist.
Introduction
I'm a 40 year old teenager who grew up in the Motor City, made a lot of mistakes in my life, and now am trying to get a fresh start here near D.C.  I love to read, mostly science fiction or fantasy.  I like to play games, usually online games like MMORPGs (Final Fantasy XI, Dungeons & Dragons Online, Perfect World) and FPS games (Battlefield Heroes, Half-Life 2, TeamFortress 2, Unreal Tournament 2k4).  Japanese Anime is one of obsessions.  My favorite music if Techno Trance and jPop.  I want to be a writer, so I write anime fan fiction to practice my writing skills for a novel I intend to finally work on.
