Final Fantasy XIV had an incredibly tumultuous launch when it was first released. Copy and pasted maps, an unintuitive combat system and an unoptimized engine made the MMO’s initial release an absolute nightmare for fans, as well as the developers. Eventually, the game had a relaunch in the form of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. In a move that surprised and delighted the game’s fans, Final Fantasy XIV somehow managed to turn its colossal failure into a massive success. Since then, the expansion Heavensward, released in 2015, was well received and added three new job classes for players to enjoy. Recently, Square Enix announced another expansion entitled Stormblood, set to be released on June 20, 2017. This expansion will introduce a new job class in the form of the famous Red Mage!
The sixth generation of Pokemon was a big deal for a lot of reasons. I’m going to expound on many of them over the course of this article; but before I get into the nuts and bolts, I want to go all wishy-washy, touchy-feely on you and discuss why I love Pokemon X and Pokemon Y.
