Can you use cure, mummy?

With Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn released just a short while ago, I have somewhat got back into playing a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) on a casual scale and as per normal I pick a healer as I prefer them over the others.

After playing the first few dungeons with little no problems and making a few in-game friends within the nice community that the Moogle server has to offer – I started to pick up again something that I learned in Final Fantasy XI: that the healer seems to be the “mother” of the overall group.

The Amber Light

Those that know me well will know that I hate random lights on when I am trying to sleep and this is the tale of the motherboard that refused to turn off.

For the last few weeks, I have been upgrading my PC and although it is not yet done (still need to get more RAM, a new I/O panel and whatnot) the computer itself turns on and works fine although it is a very loud device (the I/O panel has a temperature sensor on it to fix this).

The wheels on the bus

.... a sight I am sure you all seen

If you are a long-term reader of Tweaked for your Pleasure then I am pretty sure you are aware that I do not like the public bus service that runs near me and yet again today we have another horror story.

So the other day I was coming home from a place that is long dead when I had to get the bus which the school children use. While I normally have no problems with that bus as the children go upstairs and there is room below, I seem to have it on the day when a few people who were getting on the bus had the biggest ego in the world – an ego so powerful that it makes Final Fantasy’s Kefka look like he is a normal jester.

Dissidia Duodecim 012: My Review

Dissidia Duodecim 012

With the game being released in the United Kingdom tomorrow, I figured I would give you a review based on what I think about the game (good old US versions). The game is much like the original Dissidia with a few new people in it with a few people changing sides. Such examples are Cloud and Terra joining Chaos for a bit and Lightning, Tifa and a few others joining the side of Cosmos aside from the original lot who are with whomever they were (other than Jecht who switched over to Cosmos side).

Now the story focuses on the new lot and why they are not in the original Dissidia and focuses on something called Manikins – an army of crystalline clones of the warriors. Story-wise, it does follow on directly with the original Dissidia as it is the cycle-based before it. If you do not know what I mean by that, play Dissidia again. Now I will not stay much more about the story and will just move on to the rest of it.
