Game Awards 2021 mostly without Activision Blizzard?

According to the host, Geoff Keightley:

From The Washington Post’s article:


Keighley said he is thinking about how to “navigate” the event’s involvement with Activision Blizzard, just as major game publishers have said they are reevaluating their relationships with the company out of concern over the lawsuit’s allegations and those reported in a recent Wall Street Journal article.


“We want to support employees and developers,” said Keighley, who added he supported people coming forward with their stories but also didn’t want to diminish developers’ opportunities to spotlight their games. “We have to think very carefully about how to proceed here.”

Logging into FFXIV after 6.0 went live I was in a 5000+ queue.


Miqo’te:

Level 80.

Almost done with the 5.4 content.

5.5+ to go in Shadowbringers.

Shadowbringers one of the, if not THE best expansions i’ve ever played in a MMORPG.

Endwalker expectations vs Shadowbringers quality delivered.

Endwalker patch content. Tying up loose ends and introducing new stories.

 Glam covers rings, earrings and necklaces too.

Current PC is about 5 years old.

i7 7700 CPU, and i’m upgrading to a AMD Ryzen 9 5900X

Hello everyone,


The length of this blast from the past is a bit longer than usual so I'll keep this email short.  Enjoy the blast all the way back from episode 134 (cerca September 2009).

Weekly sprout video: IMPORTANT Blue Unlock Quests in FFXIV

Cheaping out on spending gil on transport.

Only four more days until the early access for FFXIV: Endwalker.

I’ve reached the FFXIV: Shadowbringers expansion, that’s 5.0 in the build numbering. People telling us that Shadowbringers is the best expansion. Yeah, within the first quest I saw why that is. 

You know when you don’t know anything about something and you only have the title to go by? I’m like that with Shadowbringers. I've avoided almost all spoilers, other than some screenshots, or pictures of characters involved, knowing nothing, thankfully, about the story, and it took me somewhere totally unexpected from what I fantasized it could be, and I LOVE it.

The story is so cool and unexpected, going that route is so cool.

I’m four zones into the expansion, with one totally explored and flight unlocked, two more zones abandoned to go elsewhere for the time being, to eventually return later, and into the fourth just started that one.

All the feels hit me in the early game, and the conclusion of the specific story has to be played out in a dungeon that you can do solo with NPCs as party members with this newly introduced feature called the TRUST system, where you have some NPCs in a UI window that you can make up your party with your toon plus 3 NPCs or less if you are in a party playing together just fill up the party with NPCs
