Then they reaffirmed some of the announcements from Live Letter 71, including the new Hildibrand quests and the new Beast Tribe, which will be focusing on gathering. They announced a new dungeon called the Fell Court of Troia and the new raid will be called Pandemonium Abyssos. There will be a new Unreal Trial for Sephirot. There will also be some refinements to the main scenario quest especially focused around Heavensward. There'll be some job adjustments and PvP updates and they reaffirmed the Island Sanctuary, Variant and Criterion Dungeons, which was explained in Live Letter 71. They will be refining the adventurer plate further as well as some miscellaneous updates including a new Allagan tombstone. They are also doing prep work for the next expansion's graphic updates by implementing some of the features from now. With the job adjustments they explained that there's not going to be any major overhauls to any job, they're just going to look at the minor stats like Critical and Direct Hit, and with PvP they're making some adjustments to the PvP actions to make it more balanced. And then they explained how there will be some refinement to the Crystalline Conflict Ranked Matches. And then they spoke some more about miscellaneous updates as well as showed off quite a few new armor sets, which are coming in the next Patch. And then they showed the new Tribal quest area for the Omicrons and a look at the Hub area where they're going to be based. And they went into detail about the Island Sanctuary, about how you'll be able to build a habitat, you'll be able to take care of the land around the habitat, you'll care for crops and grow items, you'll have different activities on the Island Sanctuary. You can gather materials, you can plant your crops, you can care for animals, you can landscape the terrain as they showed, you can build facilities, you can sell handicrafts, you can release up to 40 of your minions, you can earn rewards and explore the wilds because the Island Sanctuary itself is actually quite huge. And then they spoke about the Variant Dungeons. It's a variable difficulty one to four player dungeon and you'll be able to have a different experience depending on the choices you make. And the size of your party also determines the encounters you're facing in the dungeon. It will have its own dungeon finder called the Special Dungeon Finder and they then showed off some gameplay of the dungeon as well about how it will look. And you will receive a mount reward if you get far in the dungeon. And then they explained a little bit about the Criterion Dungeon, which essentially is a savage version of the Variant Dungeon and it will have its own challenges. You can only go in with a party and you will have to strategize a lot more to be able to get through it. And that was basically it for the announcements. They showed a couple of new housing items as well.

FFXIV Other Announcements

And then they spoke about other announcements related to 14, including the Eorzean Symphony Orchestra. They gave the time and dates of the orchestra and where it's going to be. And then they spoke a bit more about other things that they're doing. For example, Final Fantasy XIV will be heading to PAX Australia. They're going to be doing a Mogchute farm livestream where they're going to be petting animals on a farm near London. And then they're going to be reading the Patch Notes on the 22 Aug 2022 and that will take a while. They are going to be organizing another 14 hour broadcast for Final Fantasy 14. And then they have showed off some official apparel for 14, including an official Endwalker Paladin Jacket. And then they spoke about a digital book for Final Fantasy XIV and how to get it, and then a discount for the complete edition of the game, the Starter Guide series that they released on YouTube a few days ago. They are also hiring designers for the game. They did say that no previous experience is required, though they will probably ask you to design something during the interview process. And they are also looking for translators from Japanese to English and Japanese to German. And then they spoke about recent other important announcements as of August and that was it. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you so much, as always, to all the new followers 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.

Not at all, I simply starting playing a lot of other games too.

I started in August 2013 as a hobby, and went full time during 2018.

Being a YouTuber, Streamer, or Content Creator is not the primary goal. I am working to enjoy my life and remain independent. I do not want to spend my life taking orders from other people.

I have 10 years commercial experience as a website and database developer that I can fall back on. I was able to develop this entire website using my experience.
