You’d think that I’d only be playing one thing this weekend—although stretching it out over a whole weekend may have been difficult anyway from what I’ve heard—but you would be wrong. Of course I’ll be spending several hours with Destiny, but I’ve also rekindled an old flame with Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
Yes, after having left with the release of patch 2.1 several months ago I decided to resubscribe this weekend to see what I’ve missed, and so far I haven’t been disappointed. I have three content patches to plow through, so I won’t be getting bored any time soon.
In terms of Destiny, I’ve only played through the opening mission of so far, but the combat seems fluid enough and the graphics are simply beautiful. It’s just a shame that the character creation isn’t a little more detailed.
So that’s my weekend in a nutshell. Oh, and if you wish to follow my lead and jump back into FFXIV there’s a free weekend for previous subscribers running from today until Monday.
