Australians believing in a superior race is chef's kiss and all that.

i could ponder the choices that led someone to talk about superior races.

or i could just grind some more blu spells.

and hydrate.

"the bad guys dont consider other people to be real people. there's no real comparison to anything in real life."

just everyday ffxiv stuffs...

@mike I believe I'm still physically attached to Telstra's cable network because yes, only option at the time.

I remember the 10GB cap for up+down combined, and look now at the PS5 which just treats 50GB+ installs/patches as a matter of course.

I am totally outraged by the Optus hack and I am absolutely going to change my provider to one which definitely does not weakly store the exact same excess of personal information. They certainly exist.

100%.

I am absolutely about to lose it at gravity and its interactions within the physical universe.

Stories can be more than just fodder for a wiki, if you believe.

Also Astro Bot is the best thing Sony's ever done.

Also adaptive triggers are genuinely impressive. They're very gimmicky, in the nicest sense. Doing the gacha balls in Astro really gave the feel of playing in an arcade.

I look forward to them mainly being used to reproduced fully licensed "gun-feel" because games.

I've been playing some PS5 games and all this fauxtorealism at 4K60 is very lovely and all but it's really making me appreciate the folks who are still more than willing to make things that look artificial and - at least from my perspective - game-ish.

I want a game to shamelessly steal everything from final fantasy 12.

I know the answer is "different people like different things", and that's fine and no further explanation is actually necessary, but I've never properly understood how people can use the "Classic" theme on FFXIV.

I know it's meant to evoke the early games but set against the colour palette this game actually uses, that is a hideous blue. And then pixel buttons alongside anti-aliased modern fonts. If the blue didn't hurt my eyes that clash alone would.

FFXIV early game leveling is a thing.

I unlocked Reaper (Lv70) while still doing 2.x quests. When I finally made it to Ishgard, I leveled Dark Knight from 30 to 50 in a couple of hours.

Can't help but think there'll be a "skip straight to 6.x" option in 7.0.

what if writers were allowed to write new stories

what if nobody ever used the word "impactful" ever again

Wondering if a USB-powered coffee warmer is a silly idea.

Perhaps I just need some kind of thermos-esque mug which doesn't become a shit to clean if I put milk in it.

ffxiv, probably spoilers up to endwalker 

Shards could be an interesting narrative device but the audience just treats them like another name for magic blood, so I really hope they never ever come up again.

simulation theory is the rich idiot's idea of profundity. a supernova of incuriosity.

Turns out there's actually nothing more interesting than a gamer telling you how stoned they are.

Who knew.
