Soooo, apparently Final Fantasy 15 is coming to mobile. It actually looks like it really could be the ENTIRE GAME, which is both cool and weird because this means they remade the ENTIRE GAME for mobile platform. THE ENTIRE GAME. What they need to do is port this to the 3DS as soon as they can, as it looks very much like the 3DS remakes of FF3 and FF4. I will probably pick it up for my Android emulator on Windows, though it says Windows in the video. We’ll see how it works.
Late last week I found a post on the page ‘A Voice for Men’ that I responded to. The post was regarding the shaming of men who view adult content and the grief and problems it causes in the forms of overwhelming guilt and depression. I’ve made it pretty clear on my blog how I feel about adult content and what the bible has to say about the issues of lust, so I won’t go into that in this post (feel free to ask about it in the comments or find my other post on this blog).
One of the responses to my response, however, was from a guy who is, apparently, part of the MGTOW movement. If your not familiar, the “Men Going Their Own Way’ is a movement of guys who have basically decided that marriage and women in general are a no win situation. Many of them have vowed to never marry (though they still try to get sex whenever they can) while others have determined to drop any and all sexual interaction with women – period.
The response from the person was pretty clear: “God understands MGTOW.”
So, let’s look. Does God understand MGTOW? Or, rather, does He approve of the MGTOW mindset of avoiding and ‘giving up’ on women altogether?

Well we all kind of knew it was going to happen. With the growth of ever increasingly powerful gaming computers and components and the explosive popularity of FF15, Square Enix announced, today, the 2018 release of Final Fantasy 15 for the Windows platform. This has me SUPER excited, since I started the game a while back, but have yet to finish it only for the fact that my son keeps the PS4 upstairs in his bedroom and, since we are often playing FF14 together I don’t get to put my grubby mitts on it very often. At least with this I can purchase and play the game on my laptop! I don’t think I will get a 4k experience, but the game looks great at 1080.
Admittedly, SE has put a lot of work into this game, with two side-story expansions completed (Episodes Gladio and Prompto), at least two major updates and a multiplayer mode that is in beta testing right now. Along with a couple of games on mobile platforms, the FFXV Universe is forming.
If you want to know how I felt about the game you can read my two reviews here and here, with the first being more of a ‘first impression’, while the second is a bit more in-depth.
In the past I have posted a few pictures of one of the characters from the table top RPG I have been working on, well….forever, and have recently upgraded her.
Lilith used to be based on the old but reliable Victoria 4 platform from DAZ3D, but since I upgraded Sonja from V4 to Genesis 2 (they are now on Genesis 8….geez), I decided to do the same with Lilith. She still retains some of the look and feel of the V4 GIRL add on, which I wanted to keep anyway, but she looks a lot nicer now. I may tweak some of her details, and I may revert back to her older wings, which looked really good with a slight transparency.
So according to EVERYONE, though the sword I was officially asked to make was Cronus Lux, this one should simply be called ‘Cronus’, since the ‘Lux’ version in the game has an ominous purple aura around it. Since mine doesn’t glow, everyone says I should just call it ‘Cronus’. WHATEVER! Its done, and its pretty cool
As always, thanks to ma boy for modelling it for me (he’s kind of tall, so you get an idea of the size of this thing).
Vital info: 5’6″ long, 9″ at its widest, made of 3/4″ poplar, spray painted glossy black and covered in clear coat, the runes are made of vinyl that I cut on my Silhouette machine (oh man do I need a larger model!), handle wrapped in 550 paracord.
It weighs a lot less than it probably looks, but poplar isn’t too dense. As always its might fun to swing around!
My wife’s Morning Glory plant this morning. I love the color purple, and nature has some of the best examples of it. Had to get a couple of snapshots on my way out the door.
I had been writing a post on an experience I had with some people on Facebook when Breitbart posted a story on the upcoming sexbot revolution. Many Christians were of the mind that using these machines would be sinful for two reasons:
- Sex outside of the marriage bed is not permitted. It is sin.
- Many turned in the bible to the story of Onan, who failed to impregnate his brothers wife after he had died, as the law dictated. However, he didn’t just tell everyone he didn’t want to do the deed, he went in and had sex with his dead brothers wife, but pulled out so as not to impregnate her. This angered God and he killed Onan for it.
The post got exceedingly large and may have needed an NSFW indicator, so I scrapped it. However, it would be interesting to see what some of you think about this upcoming event – and trust me, it IS going to happen, and when it does there is going to be a battle not only in the courts of law, but in the hearts and minds of believers. Lets talk in the comments section!
What’s your take on the issue?
