    House of the Dragon (Game of Thrones prequel)

    We now have our first trailer for the Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon, a show about the Targaryen dynasty 200 years before Game of Thrones. I like how colourful this looks compared with Game of Thrones. I guess the extra swords near the Iron Throne is their attempt to bring it closer...

    Sandman (Netflix)

    Neil Gaiman's Sandman is coming to Netflix and here is a trailer. I loved these graphic novels. Reminds me that I haven’t actually finished them. I think I got about 7-8 volumes in. I hope The Corinthian is in it, because that guy was terrifying.

    Chocobo GP announced for Switch

    I haven't been paying attention to the Nintendo Direct event because I didn't think it would have anything to do with me. However, I woke up with the news that Chocobo GP, a sequel to the PSX classic Chocobo Racing, has been announced with a release date set for 2022. It is to be a Switch...

    The Matrix Resurrections

    Trailer the the upcoming Matrix sequel has been out for a few days now. What do people think about it? I'm not sure how I feel about there being another Morpheus. Apparently Lawrence Fishburne was never even asked to reprise his role, so there must be a reason. But I’m a bit guarded on...

    A visitor in your apartments...

    Has anyone else noticed the bird that sometimes flies into your apartment in the Crystarium? It appears at random in various positions, and it took me a while to register its presence. Has anybody else noticed this? Is this something which happens in apartments elsewhere in FFXIV? I...

    Happy birthday, Jay/Oberyn!

    Just noticed that it is your birthday too. Funny that both you and Greeny share a birthday with John Bentley (Barret). Nice! Happy birthday! I hope you have a good day. Don't get your face smashed in, etc. :thehead:

    Happy birthday, Greeny!

    Happy birthday, Richard! I hope you have a nice day. The Hilltop Cow took anger management therapy whilst staying with me, so don't be alarmed if you receive a bovine visitor with a giant cake. I'm sure it'll be lovely and you will be fine. :cabroot:

    Favourite seasonal event?

    Does anybody have a favourite seasonal event? For example Starlight Celebration (Christmas), Moonfire Faire (summer), The Rising (anniversary of ARR), Hatching-tide (Easter), and so on? For me, I guess it really does depend on the year. Sometimes the events are just simple fetch quests, etc...

    What book are you currently reading / have recently read?

    I thought we already had a thread like this, but I cannot find it (only a Manga one). Anyway, here we go. I'm currently reading Helen of Troy: Goddess, Princess, Whore by Bettany Hughes (2005). This book is about 15 years old now, but I’ve never read it before. It essentially examines the...

    Multiple Platforms LEGO Star Wars Game

    I haven't played a Lego game in a while. This one, which seems to be the game to end all Lego Star Wars games by combining all together, looks pretty good. I still prefer the innocence of the older Lego games where it was without vocals and relied on visual humour, but this still looks good. The...

    Favourite beast tribe?

    Do you have a favourite 'beast tribe' in this game? If so, which? Yes, the accurateness of the category 'beast tribe' is even questioned by in-game scholars (and within the Encyclopedia Eorzea), but for the sake of convenience we'll continue to use the term. I myself have not played through...

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    After leaks forced their hand, Sony/Marvel have finally revealed the trailer for the third MCU Spider-Man film. It seems like a number of the rumours over the past year have turned out to be... True?! Okay, on the back of Loki, this looks to be the wildest MCU venture to date. Not only are...

    Broom speech patterns.

    Not really any spoilers, but if you want to be completely blind and haven't yet played Heavensward, maybe look at this thread another day. Something I hadn't noticed before. I used to think that Matoya's brooms were just speaking gobbledygook in their first sentences, followed by their...

    FFIX Trance Forms. Which is your favourite?

    With a surge of emotion an inhabitant of Gaia might attain a state of heightened power known as Trance. This state goes beyond being a reimagining of the franchise’s Limit Break mechanic. In Trance states the characters actually temporarily transform their physical appearances. When I was...

    Multiple Platforms Stray (a cat game)

    Something FFF’s cat-lovers might like. Maybe. A game where you play as a cat and slink about, claw at furniture, etc. With a few twists. I know nothing else about this game or its development history beyond what is in this trailer, but I thought it was cool. While they've added weird...

    Rumoured Final Fantasy live-action Netlflix series

    A few days ago Giant Freakin Robot said that a 'trusted source' had hinted that Final Fantasy might be amongst a number of video game properties to receive the Netflix treatment. See also these reports (here and here). Pretty much nothing else is known, including whether there is any actual...

    Happy birthday, Jake!

    According to FFF. :rossmanian: I hope you're having a good day with many juicy bananas and zero giant hairy spiders.

    What are the Mandervilles?

    I do not mean their function in their stories and the wider world. I mean what are they biologically which makes them overpowered with super-strength and super-speed? Hildibrand can survive ridiculous falls (in some cases flying into the sky like a rocket and always survives, like Mister...
