Ok, as far as the STORY is concerned, I've completed my ninja training.

I went ahead and bought the expansion pack, so I'll be trying out red mage soon.
Red Mage fulfill's it's class fantasy well. By 70, you get to do it all and there will be times when the success and failure of a raid WILL lie on your dual casting shoulders. Just get used to the low DPS output.

Lego Jurassic Park

So far, I've only beaten the first movie portion of the game and stated a bit of Jurassic Park II.

It's... okay, I guess? The gags to make the cutscenes silly are always a treat. The puzzles and how they use each character is clever but not difficult, as usual.

But I'm just not digging it like the DC or especially Marvel games. The sandbox over world isn't particularly fun to traverse and is actually pretty limited. And the amount of times you get to play as a dinosaur is really limited.

I might keep playing it, but I'm not as engaged as I usually am.

You do get to play as a dinosaur a lot more when you're free roaming around the world. Building custom dinos was fun for me.

Getting around that "open" world is a pain the ass though. Because they wanted to limit the paths you could take in story mode, and didn't open things up after the story finishes, getting around often requires looping around in circles to get to somewhere that's just on the other side of a bush. It didn't ruin my fun, but it did feel stupid.

At least it didn't feel as limited as the LEGO Movie game.

I'm currently playing LEGO City Undercover, and I guess I'm lucky because it's not crashing on me, or having any other major glitches, yet. In fact, it's pretty damn awesome. There are a lot of great bits of comedy (I loved Morgan Freeman as Blue and the parody of The Shawshank Redemption.) I can't wait to roam around the city finding stuff when I've got all the abilities unlocked.

This might motivate me to play through: can I eventually play a pterodactyl?

I'll be at work so I'll have my sound off, but I'm game.
Running a bit late. Trying to cook dinner and found out we have no butter. So I have to run to the store. And then cook. About an hour later than normal.

I think it's fine, but it's still an MMO and the main story quest is interesting if you can sit through cut scenes, but it's poorly designed and makes you spend 75% of the time teleporting back and forth.

Though the teleporting thing is only for pre-HW content. Once you're in the expansions, this stops ever being a thing.

But the expansions aren't free right now.
No, they aren't. But it is worth mentioning to folks who DO like the game enough to sub/buy the expansions. They had to cut a lot of corners in that first year and a half of dev time for 2.0 and it shows, but they made sure not to repeat them down the line when they actually had a proper dev cycle again.

Devil May Cry 5 released yesterday. It was one of my free games from AMD for buying a new video card. Installed, but haven't played yet.

Is there a HF server?
No, but I'm playing on Primal Data Center, Malboro server if you want to play with me or join my free company. You don't have to be on the same server to party with people, but you do have to be on the same data center. Also, PS4 and PC all play together, if for example you prefer playing on a console.

I’m thinking I will download the free demo on my PS4. My PC laptop didn’t survive my daughter’s birthday party. I think the keyboard is physically broken and my MAC isn’t a gaming machine, I bought a photography etc machine.
Post automatically merged:

Something to keep in mind: there are upcoming Data Center changes.



Basically, Green plays with Green, Purple with Purple.
What does this mean? Can I still select Primal/Marlboro?

I thought I was pretty clear. Green names = Servers associated with the AETHER Data Center. Purple names = Servers Associated with the Primal Data Center. You can only play with players on your Data Center. This is basically just to let you know where the servers from Crystal are moving too.

This is actually kind of a big deal for the RP community: all the RP happens on Balmung and it's been locked up for years with no access. But with the upcoming World Visit system, players on it's new Data Center will be able to go to Balmung and join in.
