Not being able to send people DMs unless they follow you is probably a good move for the site, but makes getting into contact with people for something like this difficult. If you see this @rayeth, I followed you so send me a DM when you want to play. As long as it's not the middle of the night EST, I'm probably good for it.
I'm trying to think of a better choice for a guest character in Tekken than Geese, and I'm coming up with nothing. He's a fantastic choice both in terms of hype level for including him, and in terms of thematically fitting into the Tekken universe.
FFXIV forces you to do the old content before buying the new stuff. You have to finish realm reborn before starting heavensward, and you have to finish heavensward before starting storm blood. I'm not an expert in the game, I only just recently got back into it, but as far as I can tell the only reason to get stormblood right away is if you want to play one of their classes before making it into the expansions propers. The heavensward classes unlock at level 30 I think, and the storm blood ones at 50, again I think. I could be wrong about the levels you need to be at to unlock them.
I played a little bit of Firefall when it first came out. It was really boring, at least at early levels. I didn't make it very far into the game before putting it aside. I remember Defiance being a much better shooter mmo at the time.
