Get Final Fantasy XIV Free, from Domino’s Pizza, in Australia

Get Final Fantasy XIV Free, from Domino's Pizza, in Australia

I love a weird gaming cross promotion. They typically come out of Japan but this collaboration between Square Enix and the Oceania division of Domino’s Pizza makes for a random regional mashup. To ncoincide with the recently released Stormblood expansion, gamers can get a free download of Final Fantasy XIV Complete Edition on PlayStation 4 or PC by buying the gut-busting “Pizza & Gaming Bundle” for $49.95. That includes the game and a combo of 3 pizzas, 1 garlic bread, and a 1.5L drink. Nothing says “hot friday night” like sharing three pizzas and watching the download bar slowly creep across the screen! Just kidding: download codes delivered within 24 hours.

But which three pizzas do you order? For the promotion Domino’s has renamed some tried-and-true topping combos to make alliterative allusions to the game. The Meatlovers pizza is now Moogle’s Meatlovers, the veggie is Curious Cactuar, the supreme is Stormblood Supreme, and the Hawaiian is Heavensward Hawaiian. There is one unique creation, the Chocobo Chow which implies that chocobo tastes like chicken. The toppings include chicken, pineapple, capsicum (peppers), mushrooms, onion and spring onion (scallions).

All told, that saves you about $10 over buying everything individually on top of getting the game. Any Final Fans in Australia or New Zealand up for the deal? Anybody else wish they could get the offer in their part of the world?

When asked for their thoughts, GameLuv’s Heart1lly said she’d “prefer stuff from the Eorzea cafe in Japan” and Katy added “it makes me want to have pizza.” Think it over and leave a comment, I’m with Katy and super hungry for generic pizza right now.

Of 2013: Year of the Bundle


Do you want a backlog of games you may never play without spending a lot of money? Is your Steam list embarrassingly short and you want to fluff it up without going broke? Do you like collecting/selling Steam trading cards? If so then you better get yourself back to January and buy up every bundle you see because 2013 was totally the Year of the Bundle.

From the Humble Bundle to Indie Royale to the Indie Game Stand (and beyond, there’s a wiki just for bundles!), I bought a ton of games for not a lot of money in 2013. Some of them I wanted badly and some of them were surprising new favorites that I never would’ve bought on their own. Most I haven’t even played yet… but I’ve got them. Ya know, in case people stop making new games.

And now — for no other reason than the comedic value of a massive list — here’s everything I got through a bundle in 2013.

Happy Black Friday Birthday!

Thanksgiving morning we packed up for a trip back home to my parents’ place. With handhelds in tow for entertainment we ate and chatted with family as we all poured over the Black Friday newspaper ads. I coerced myself into an 8pm run to Walmart after seeing some real hot bangers were on sale.

I didn’t get Forza Horizon like I was hoping for but I did grab Spec Ops: The Line and Max Payne 3 on Xbox 360 for $15 each. Katy got me the Chromeo CD for my birthday, my sister got me the PlayStation Plus card which I was able to redeem right from the Vita and start downloading, and my folks slipped me some 20’s.

The next morning we went to Meijer a little after 7am and found it no busier than a normal day. A small corner of their circular promised Vita stuff was going to be marked down but it didn’t specify games, accessories or both. My hunch was right, though, and it included memory cards; I got a 16gb card for 50% off. Little Deviants was marked down to $10 so I grabbed a copy of that too. It was a pretty stress-free and fun birthday holiday for me. I hope you guys scored good deals or had good times as well!
