As the title says, what a weekend! For the entire community, the “Whisper” quest brings in the Whisper of the Worm sniper rifle, aka the Black Spindle. For the Average Joes Clan it brought us our first Prestige Leviathan clear as a group.
We spent around 8 hours the first day it was out with no luck – but we came close a couple of times. Saturday we all got it on our first runs.
Prestige Leviathan has been one of those things that has been a nemesis, mainly because we have had an issue getting a 6th person in who could help us. Saturday night we were able to get it done.
Not only were we able to get it done but we were able to one phase Calus, with the Whisper of the Worm of course!
Next up for us as a group is to complete Spire of Stars as well as finish the catalyst on our WotW. Stay tuned to YouTube to watch our progress.
This game looks, and plays, amazing. I am only around two hours in – just made it to the dwarf’s little outpost, and so far I agree with what virtually everyone else is saying. This game is amazing.
Unfortunately, after spending just over two hours on release day, I haven’t gone back because I have been playing The Witcher 3. However, with the time I have spent so far, the game is really good. Graphics: A+, Game play A+ and story: A so far.
It’s been awhile since I have really done any streaming or videos, but that is about to change! I am currently in the process of moving my entire operation into its on separate room (getting out of the living room, which will make my wife happy). Currently, I have been playing a lot of The Division, running through all of the Global Events with Lightstorm89, getting all of the classified gear and optimizing builds. The plan is to continue with The Division, but also play some Star Wars Battlefront while we all wait for the Destiny 2 “expansion” in May. I also plan on getting on the Nintendo Switch for some Breath of the Wild action which once I get my setup completed by the middle of April I will be able to stream as well.
There are a lot of games I want to go back and get in to, some to finish and some to simply play again:
- Elite: Dangerous
- Stuck somewhere near Colonia in my Anaconda after my trip to Beagle Point. Need to get back to Sol, etc, etc.
- Horizon Zero Dawn
- Need to load up that DLC (Frozen Wilds). Absolutely loved this game, was the GOTY in my opinion, though after playing Breath of the Wild I can see why it got beat out.
- Assassin’s Creed: Origins
- Spectacular game that I simply need to finish.
- The Witcher 3
- My all time favorite game (still), just want to get back into the world.
- Gran Turismo: Sport
- I am upgrading to 4k, so I want to see it in 4k. Looks stunning in “normal” HD, so looking forward to seeing it with the step up.
Notice none of these are MMORPGs – I still have Final Fantasy 14 and even Elder Scrolls Online on my radar, but i just don’t know if I want to sink the time in either one of them to both catch up and be solid in end game. There is also Diablo III – which I haven’t logged into since seasons and Necromancer came to consoles, and though I’d love to get back into it, I need some of my buddies to hop back in on it as well (so much fun rampaging through Rifts and such.
In short, there are a lot of games i want to get back to, but The Division, along with Destiny 2 (if May works out) will be the two games i plan on prioritizing for awhile. Games I am looking forward to are Dragon Quest XI (Sept. 4) and Red Dead Redemption 2 (Oct. 26). Obviously The Division 2, but we have no idea release dates and wont until E3 this June.
If there is a game I listed here that you want to watch, just let me know. There is also the possibility that I may pop No Man’s Sky back in as well, especially with the big update coming this Summer.
As we are less than one month away from the first DLC for Destiny 2 – Curse of Osiris, many of us are playing some different games, and some of us have switched to playing Destiny 2 on PC.
To throw some content out there, here I am having fun with Orpheus Rigs for the first time – keep in mind, I am not a good hunter!
With the release of Elite Dangerous on PS4, and the new raid coming to FFXIV, it looks like we have some games to keep up busy.
Next week the first turns of the new raid in Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood will be released, with the savage versions released two weeks after that. In terms of streaming, i probably wont stream, but will more then likely upload some videos of runs and completions as they come. I’m pretty much where I want to be until the raid drops on Tuesday, though altlesjo and I may be putting in some more pug attempts on the two extreme trials this weekend.
Elite Dangerous has gotten off to a pretty good start so far:
The plan is to stream whenever I am on Elite Dangerous. A lot of these streams will not have an voice commentary, but I will be paying attention to any chat comments and answering when I’m not avoiding stars, space stations or our good friend Boyle. I will have some streams with commentary and Q&A, and those will (hopefully) be announced. Both Voidkraken and I have set up private groups, but the idea is to stick with Voidkraken’s as our main (at the moment at least) so we can have a good place for PvE action with all of those in the H’Star community who decide to play, as well as other friends.
I will be making a page here for Elite Dangerous that will have some links that I have found useful as well as some other YouTube streamers who are playing it on PS4 (as well as other platforms) – so far I have met some pretty cool folks streaking Elite on PS4.

June 16, 2017
Beginning Approximately 7:00am Eastern
Commentary will be on and off, but chat will be available
Cut scenes will be skipped to avoid as many spoilers as possible
Game play will be on Playstation 4
I will be playing on my dragoon, moving through the main story quests and the dragoon job quests as they come up. Commentary will be on and off depending on my streaming environment (I have kids.. and there is no school 🙂 )
The stream will be on the JZH Gaming YouTube Channel, and chat will be available regardless of whether or not commentary is on.
The Non-Disclosure Agreement got lifted today, so a lot of twitch, YouTube and Reddit users who have gotten first hand experience of the changes coming to FFXIV with Stormblood are releasing information. Here are some links:
Official Reddit Thread – Stormblood Hands-On Preview

Mr. Happy’s YouTube Channel (my personal favorite resource)
There are some exciting changes coming with Stormblood – both to existing classes/jobs plus the addition of Red Mage and Samurai. Along with this, new main story quests and a new raid is on the horizon. Early Access begins on June 16, just over two weeks away.
My plan is to have streams going all day, both with and without commentary through Discord. These streams will be spoiler heavy – though I haven’t decided if I will skip cut scenes or not (for those who don’t know, you can go back and view all of the cut scenes you have already scene/skipped). I will be streaming through YouTube as usual.
My plan on Stormblood progression, without knowing too much of what is going to happen upon its release, but basing it off of Heavensward’s release from two years ago, is to get through the MSQ as quickly as possible on my Dragoon, then decide if I want to level Red Mage or Samurai – leaning towards Red Mage.
