Da-bomb, and also A-bomb to BLU coming to FFXIV. Why the da-bomb? Cause BLU is awesome in every incarnation. Why the A-bomb? Cause I can never stick with FFXIV for long, but the hubby stated a long time ago that if they ever brought out BLU we had to go back. Of course, I said the same about Chemist... but that's not going to happen, right?

QOTW: What I want it to be: Tanks, IN SPAAAACCCEEE!! just because I like saying IN SPAAAAACCCEEE!!!! Plus I find the mental image of tanks tumbling around in zero gravity and having to use their guns as propulsion amusing.
What it will actually be: World of Tanks battle royal.

I'm also on the old games train from ep 282. Playing OSRS again and going for that quest cape!

I honestly believe that Edge Case Games will be working with Wargaming to to possibly make a full attempt at a full version of a BR style tank game since Edge Case has worked with vehicular active abilities more than Wargaming has with their April fools game modes

A-bomb to my luck in life ,This is not a joke, on 26th November on my way home on foot, I got hit by 5 cars on the crosswalk by people who just got their driver's license, not hard enough to do any real damage, so i was fine, the only things that hurt where my left leg my ass and my pride , if this was DnD i rolled a natural 1 in luck and a perfect 20 in defence , God wants to torture me but not kill me .

Qotw : Hmm, I don't think they will make another space war simulator, at least not with huge ships, who knows maybe they will do something similar to the space battles from battlefront , or maybe they will just go with a sci-fi ground combat ,maybe something similar to MechWarrior Online , or maybe similar to Crossout or too Robocraft .
