Before you proceed, there is nothing here but a bad ass CG trailer. From my perspective & I'm so far on the out side trying look in, I still can't tell what is happening with this game that is different.

Read full story...

I call them le-ve. If you have the leves to spare, you can save a ton of money & time on leveling craft. The trade craft leves give the best rewards. Crystals, Cash & EXP. A lot of EXP.

Obviously this is a technique I'll be waying thru the rest of the FFXIV life cycle. 18K EXP is easily worth 5K. Somebody gotta jack up the price. Might as well be me while I level up off of these nuabs. Don't be a Jimmy!

Thanks for watching. 

How do you make money gathering? Here's a few tips on leveling optimally & making dat GIL at the same time.

Leves are a great way to gain some good XP on your way to your next level, but what if you're out of leves or you just want to save them for crafting? Get your daily Grand Company gathering missions done. Only turn in HQ items for a maximum bonus. How to make GIL with this method. Gather an extra group of 10 or 20 HQ items. Put them on the MB (in groups of 10 only) to sell it to the lazy gatherers that just want to turn it in real quick. 

Take left over NQ items & put them on the MB for as cheap as possible. Most items sell back to vendors for only 1 GIL, so anything more than a GIL is worth it. Just get rid of that inventory. I for 1, don't have any room to hang on to NQ nubfarm items.

Final tip here is to always check the board to see what is selling high that day you plan to level. Check what area you're going to & what items are available. Make sure you get 99 of those during your gathering. With decent gear you should pull 30-40 HQ items you can sell too. Deals Jimmy! 

Bottom line here, always check your Grand Company daily quests. Know what items are peaking on the Market Board & grab some of those. It's okay to get back a few levels too because you can get extra HQs & extra HQs mean extra GIL! 

Don't be a Jimmy! Thanks for watching/reading. 

So You Thing You Can Gather airs every Thursday on Gouki.tv. You can find me on Malboro rolling with [FC] TAW.

Here's a look at how my systems are holding up running Final Fantasy X|V & streaming with settings maxed out. Check out my results in the 2 live videos I made plus a bonus look at BatRastered's score.

When I first started to download the benchmark yesterday, it told me it would take 3 days at 1 point. This game is going to get railed on day 1. I recently purchased a brand new laptop, hoping I’d be able to stream the Final Fantasy from different locations. As long as the internet was ample. Well I tried it from home today, where the internet is ample. Here are the results from the laptop. This clip is from the Twitch stream.

Now for the desktop streaming the Fantasy.

Special bonus, here’s what it looked like on BatRastered’s stream.

I’m disappointed with the laptop’s performance, but I’ll mess with the settings & see how it goes. If I can’t get it to my satisfaction, I may just send this Jimmy back. Too expensive for it to NOT do what I want.

*Update we have improved the performance on the Laptop, but running Xsplit at the same time maxes out the CPU.

Thanks for reading.

 

GoukiJones & FnJimmy talk about Final Fantasy XIV & other Square Enix games at E3 2013.

Murdered Soul Suspect was 1 of the worst demos I saw. Besides that Wolfenstein shit. Another freezing dark room packed full of Jimmys. I was literally holding myself up from falling over. Because of what happened during this demo I have made a new rule to sit/stand near the door of game I don't know anything about. I so wanted out of that room. 

"Excuse me, pause for a second." Then I get up & stumble out over 20 nuabs sitting on the floor. Dear god never again!

I'm super hype for the Final Fantasy XIV. I've been playing in the beta the last 2 weeks & have already logged well over 40+ hours. They did a really good job on COMPLETELY REMAKING THE ENTIRE GAME. Again I digress, BatRastered had the best take. 

"Isn't it just XI HD?" Yep.

Thief. Thief looked so bad during the press conference or where ever I saw that game play demo. Maybe the Keighly. The characters just running up to you to get smacked & the terrible, horrible animation. 2004 type shit. Pass. 

I played the FFX remake for like 15 minutes. All I watched were cut scenes with 0 skipping abilities. Fuck that.

Then there was something called Final Fantasy XIII-2 X3 4 Jimmys Lighting Returns. Ridiculous! Why can't Square let go of that horrible game?!

I am hype for that Final Fantasy XV tho. Even tho none of it is quite real just yet. 

Thanks for watching & reading.

You get a white elite. 2 controllers and Final Fantasy XIII. Now you may not want to play Final Fantasy XIII, but you can sell it. New it's still worth $40-$50, which means that's a real easy sale or trade for you for about $20 or so.

Final Fantasy XIII Limited Edition Xbox 360 price drop and a free faceplate

You get a white elite. 2 controllers and Final Fantasy XIII. Now you may not want to play Final Fantasy XIII, but you can sell it. New it's still worth $40-$50, which means that's a real easy sale or trade for you for about $20 or so. The faceplate is alledgy worth $50, maybe you can get $10 for it. Do you need 2 controllers? You can easily sell that extra controller for $25 bucks.

The Final Fantasy XIII Limited edtion is on sale now for $299.99 250 gig HD 2 Wireless controllers Final Fantsy XIII game A Headset A Faceplate (must click add to cart on Amazon.) So if you sold off the extra Controller ($25) the Final Fantasy XIII game ($30) and the faceplate ($10) you could get back at least $65. That knocks the total down to $235 for a 250 gig HD White Xbox 360 Elite. Stolen!

Gouki Guild in Final Fantasy XIV

By: goukijones Sep 11, 2010 | 6 Comments

I’m looking for some serious people to get down and destroy this Final Fantasy XIV. Team up with the Gouki Guild.

Gouki Guild in Final Fantasy XIV. Number 1 in the Eorzea!

Final Fantasy XIV world map

I haven’t decided what town and or Job or craft I will do just yet. I will tell you I will not start in the castle town of Ul’dah. That is nubfarm. So lets talk about Gridania, it’s in the woods. The Bontanist, carpenters, and archer’s guild are all in Gridinia. Also the lancer's and Conjurrer's guilds as well. Those are all classes I’ve considered really focusing on. Bontanist for sure. I will be doing bontany, for a few reasons. One, it gets you out of the town. Chopping down trees and hacking away at flowers and other foliage. 

I don’t think it will matter about which city we start in. The other option is Limsa Lominsa. My only issue is with this place is that it’s an island. That probably won’t make a difference once we unlock all of the travel routes. I like the water town because it’s open, blue and green. Gridania is just dark green and seems like it’s in the shade everywhere. 

As a guild we will focus on working together throughout the world. Choose any class or profession you like. It’s more important to have fun than anything else. We’ll combine whatever we choose and work from there. I’m sure there will be plenty of things we will be able to take advantage of early one. Especially with my experience with the beta at this point. I got one Jimmy maxed out for the beta. Tons of items, maxed gear and a ton of money. What I need is some partners in crime and to take our Jimmys out and level them up. 

So if you want to join the Gouki Guild sign up for Gouki.com and leave a comment on this story. On September 22, 2010 when Final Fantasy XIV is released we’ll meet and figure out what planet we’re gonna be on and go from there. Don’t be a Jimmy!

A three minute look at the new patch for FFXIV coming March 27.

I can't wait to see what level of weapons and gear we'll be getting in this patch.

Final Fantasy XIV and my serious problem

By: goukijones Aug 18, 2010 | 4 Comments

My brain continues to argue with itself over the Final Fantasy XIV. I have so many issues here Jimmy.

First of all it's on the PC straight away for $74.99 and yes I have to get the collector's edition. If I do not get the collector's edition and really love the game and play it for years. I'll be real upset with myself. Plus I need that Onion Helm and whatever other goodies it comes with.

The Benchmark test: I recently ran the benchmark test, but before I can tell you my results let me share a few tidbits with you. I had to re-install an older version of DirectX to just run the benchmark. Wtf? Then it ran smoothly, but my score well was below the minimum. Maybe because my computer was running an older version of DirectX? My computer is brand new, I have a video card that I bought this year for like $200. It should work right?

What if it doesn't? My computer is how I work[attempt to make a living], I can't work[attempt to make a living] all morning and then have an all night pwnfest on the FF14 and run my computer for 20 hours a day. That shit will fry. Then I'll be addicted for sure by that point, with no FF14 and now no computer to work[attempt to make a living]. So that's that problem. Solution ... be prepared to upgrade.

Waiting for the PS3: Wait until March? Are you crazy? Don't forget about the Onion Helm. Oh and there's the 6 month headstart the rest of the Jimmys will get on you. This time around, I want to start at the very beggining with everyone else.

Backwards compatible PS3: I have one of those rare PS3's that is backwards compatible and is worth thousands according to Ebay. I don't really want to break that either. The current plan is to buy it for the PC and try to control myself. Then when March rolls around, buy another, yes a second PS3 just to play FF14.

 

I was super addicted to Final Fantasy XI and I know I will get hooked on this one fo sho. The game looks amazing, there are no words for the beauty of it. The Making of a realm vidoc series is absolutely mindboggling. When I think about the jobs and the world and the monsters. It's without a doubt I'm going to get lost with this game.

Estrada says he is getting this game. Gorilla Warbear is still playing FF11 because he was hoping for a Beta key for FF14 or to get something when FF14 comes out. Well he's gonna get something, but I don't care too much for it. Hermes’ Shoes. “Named after an elder god, all but forgotten in the modern age, these gold-tipped shoes have been crafted with the lightest of leathers, making them optimal for use by heralds and noterunners.”

 

We've already touched on setting up our squad and putting ourselves in different roles for crafting and fighting. This is not good, I'm already drawing charts in bed at night before I go to sleep. I can't stop thinking about which way I want my character to go.

I can't even decide if I want to be a little Jimmy(Lalafell) or an Elf Jimmy(Elezen.) I was a little Jimmy in FF11. I don't want to be a human or the big Gorilla Warbear looking thing. The elves look cool, but I don't know what job I would focus on. At least the little Jimmys look cool doing anything in the game, so I'll probably pick one of them. So then it's decided. I'll a "Lalafell" in FF14.

As far as Jobs go forget about it. I have no idea. I might just level up all different kinds at the beggining. It depends on how many friends I have and if we are actually leveling up together to go do missions and stuff. I like healing, because I don't trust anybody else doing it. I will most definitely choose a trade that will make a lot of money, like medicines or food. Consumable items are the way to go.

 

It's official, I'm going to pre-order the Final Fantasy XIV. I'm going to promise myself to not let it get out of hand. I can not break my PC, must survive on it until March. Lalafell healer/thief and cooking/medicine master! Look for me when the game comes out. Want to get on the same planet with me? Leave a comment and lets start the Gouki Guild! Don't be a Jimmy!
