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.”
What We've Been Doing:
The Road to 70 buff is now the The Road to 80 buff.
Logging into FFXIV after 6.0 went live I was in a 5000+ queue.
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
RAM upgrade that wasn’t a upgrade and it was “free”
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).
Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at some of the most useful World of Warcraft addons out there.
