After many, many months of waiting, the Warrior of Darkness and their 23 companions can head into The Puppets’ Bunker. Here lies new challenges, new mysteries and maybe a couple of answers.
The Puppets’ Bunker is the second of three planned 24-player Alliance Raids being introduced in the Shadowbringers expansion. Coming under the YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse banner, these raids are being guest directed by Yoko Taro and Yosuke Saito. It was the first piece of content I jumped into when I booted up Patch 5.3, and I enjoyed every minute of it!
Expect to see more when my review of Final Fantasy XIV Patch 5.3: Reflections in Crystal goes live (hopefully) on Friday.
For the last couple of weeks, I have been crafting stories or providing explanatory notes with almost every instalment in the Take That (In-Game) Snap Daily Photo series. While I do so as a creative outlet, taking photos in video games is not always about telling a story or even being creative for that matter. Instead, it should be first and foremost a means of capturing a memorable in-game moment – whether defeating a complex raid, beating a challenge you have been working so hard on, or just capturing a moment worthy to remain memorable in your mind for months and years to come.
Therefore for the next week or so, I would like to move away from what I have been doing, and just post pictures from different games I took on the spur of the moment. Some may be of varying quality, but nevertheless were part of just taking random photos for fun.
Take That (In-Game) Snap Daily Photo is an off-shoot of the Take That (In-Game) Snap article series, in which the first article focusing on Final Fantasy XIV was recently published. This looks at, celebrates and critiques how video game developers have implemented professional photography-like systems into their games. It will cover how the systems handle, just how accessible they are and, where applicable, how a modding community might be making these tools even better. With this Daily Photo spin-off series, I will be sharing individual photos from the games either covered or soon-to-be-covered in the series.
