FFXIV Endwalker Congestion

Hello, guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 05 Dec 2021. There's been ongoing congestion issues with the early access launch of Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker and it will probably last for a few days. What most players seem to be experiencing is not just long server queues but also the queue being interrupted and then being thrown at the back of the queue. For example, you might be 5000 in the queue, wait for ages, maybe more than an hour, get disconnected and then be back exactly where you were at the beginning. It's been a highly frustrating experience for a lot of players trying to play Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker and Naoki Yoshida, who is the director of the game, also known as Yoshi P, has sent out a blog to basically explain why the situation is happening and also will be offering all the purchasers of the game with an active subscription, seven days of free game time to compensate for what's going on. Hopefully, they can fix it sooner than later. From my experience, no MMO has ever had a smooth launch, smooth expansion launch. I've never ever seen it because simply the amount of players is overwhelming and it's only going to get worse with time. The developers of MMOs need to anticipate that more and more and more and more. Hopefully it'll be fixed sooner than later.

FFXIV Sia Fly Me To The Moon

And then next bit of news for today is more on Final Fantasy 14. Square Enix and Sia have actually collaborated on a version of Fly Me To The Moon for Final Fantasy XIV. Fly Me To The Moon is a song that came out in the 1950s and it's been used a lot in different versions. It's been used by Frank Sinatra in the 60s to commemorate the moon landing. It's been used in Squid Game as a weird song over the first game of red light, green light and it's also been used at the ending of Bayonetta. It's been used a lot, but the Sia version is really good, so look it up, Sia - Fly Me To The Moon.

videogamedunkey Feature

And then this week shout out and feature is going to go to videogamedunkey. videogamedunkey is a content creator, mostly a YouTuber, but he's also streams over on Twitch and he's got a massive channel on YouTube and he puts a lot of effort into his videos as a comedy reviewer. That would be the shortest way to explain what he does, and he is not scared at all about voicing his opinion or opposition about certain elements of certain video games, and his latest video is very creative. It's a video that's just blank in an audiobook style and it was still very good and his videos typically get one to 11 million views each. He is a long established YouTuber in the video game sector and also as well, I love his videos. I've been watching him for years now, so check him out if you've not actually looked at his channel before. And one thing that you might find is that you don't just watch one of his videos. You end up watching like 20. That's part of the reason why he's so big on YouTube because he makes really high quality videos, and it's obvious he puts a lot of effort into them as well. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you so much for all the new followers as always. And I will see you tomorrow. Thanks, guys. Bye bye.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have played hundreds of games in my life and have experienced truly amazing games. As time has passed and games continue to evolve, I want to share my gaming adventures with the world so you can improve your gaming experience too.

There are several gaming franchises I love experiencing a lot such as Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, God of War, Uncharted, Yakuza, Assassin's Creed, The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Xenoblade Chronicles and more.

In 1997 when I was 12 years old, a class mate of mine asked me, have you ever played Final Fantasy 7? I was like no, what’s that? He lent me his copy, and I remember on the first night I escaped Midgar after not being able to put it down for 5 to 6 hours even though it was a school night. Shortly after I finished the game and my gaming obsession was truly planted.

Towards the end of 1998 I played Zelda 64 Ocarina of Time. It was a revelation to me, given its combat, story telling, music and satisfying ending. It also gave a hint of what open world could look like given how “huge” Hyrule Field was, which was massive for the time. After nearly 25 years, Zelda 64 Ocarina of Time still sits at the top of my favourite games of all time list.

When I went to University during 2003 to 2007, it was the era of Half Life 2. I remember spending a portion of my student loan so I could get a gaming pc powerful enough to play it.

During that time I also started my adventures in MMOs including Final Fantasy 11 and World of Warcraft. It amazes me that they are still online to this day.

After leaving University, I like most people ended up in the 9 to 5 cycle, after a year of being stuck in the “no job without experience, no experience without a job”. At the time I was still living with my parents and I got distracted on girls for a while. My love for gaming never ended though, with it always being a fall back for me.

In 2013, I started my first YouTube channel, as a way to also document my time in the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn. I had seen some YouTubers who made really good videos. For me, at the time, it was a hobby to do on the evening and weekends, I never went into it thinking one day it would be my job. I would have made videos, even if it made no money at all.

After 10 years of multiple jobs, living a very miserable existence in the 9 to 5 cycle, it all abruptly ended in 2018 with my disability of severe anxiety preventing me from commuting to London to work any more.

During the Pandemic, a lot of people were losing their jobs, and there was a lot more time to produce videos and play games. While growing as a content creator, I noticed my Instagram page had little to no content. One day I picked up my phone and recorded a video talking about gaming as it was my favourite hobby.

As I have now played hundreds of games and my passion has evolved for the last 30 years, I see my love for gaming lasting until the day I die. Games have made me laugh, made me cry, and everything in between. The recent price increases have definitely dampened gaming for most gamers, but I am in a privileged position as an Independent Gaming Journalist to receive a lot of games for free from developers and publishers to review.

I hope I can always bring the highest quality Gaming News every day, in digestible 1 to 1.5 minute summaries, to share the passion I have always had for it.
