Happy Wednesday, gamers. I’ve been sucked back into Final Fantasy XIV thanks to peer pressure, and while I’m not to the good part of the story by any stretch of the imagination, it’s immensely satisfying to repeat the whole “run to place, perform action, receive sparkly reward” cycle. Sometimes your brain just needs that little dose of serotonin. I also dabbled a bit in Jonathan Frakes Wants Your Attention, And You Must Not Give It To Him, a quick and hilarious little game about ignoring a vengeful spirit taking the shape of Star Trek and Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction star Jonathan Frakes. You can get it on its own, or for $5 as part of the TTRPGs for Trans Rights in Texas!, which is available for another couple of weeks!
Anyway, let’s get to the news. (more…)
