So I just purchased a PS4 so that I can play FF XII Zodiac age, FF XV, and FF XIV! I'm really excited especially for XII because I had it for the PS2 but never got too far.
I really find the character designs of the Scions really incredible, Penelo/Vaan seem charming enough, and I hear Prompto is actually a decent character!
Having played Lightning in like three different games lol, it's really comforting to have her in my party even in a mobile game because I've grown to like the character over the years--it's like Cloud for a lot of people
So I definitely feel like I was missing out somewhat when I started liking characters in this game but never experienced their story in their respective main games. I'm very glad that I'm finally going to do some serious catching up and Opera Omnia really encouraged that.
Anyone else experience something similar? And also I hear XIV's story (I forgot the name of the expansion) is really incredible !!
The synopsis explains:
“Readers are transported to the far-future, following a war that could have extinguished humanity. For 50 years, space had been silent, the war’s heroes forgotten. Now mankind’s enemy is back, but is someone else forcing their hand? If so who – or what – is this new aggressor? Idris discovers something strange, abandoned, as his salvage vehicle combs isolated tracts of space. It’s clearly the work of the Architects – but is this foe returning? And if so, why? Hunted by gangsters, cults and governments, Idris and his crew race between the stars, hunting for answers. For they now possess something of incalculable value, and many would kill to own it.”
This new trilogy won’t be connected to [previous] novels. “The big difference is that I’m shooting for space opera, whereas Children of Time / Ruin was always intended as more of a hard SF, in that the science, even the giant spiders, was curtailed by what we currently think to be possible and how we... keep reading on reddit ➡

In the car, in the kitchen, at the gym, headphones, blasting on a stereo through the entire house ... you name it I’ve done it with opera. Am I just weird? Does anybody else treat opera like music to chill to and work to? Or is sitting down with a complete video the only way to go for you?
I just wanted to know what you guys think about this, sometimes (most of the times tbh) if you get out of the app for a couple of minutes to do other stuff and then comeback to the game, boom, it restarted, others, it'll happily run in the background for half an hour or maybe even more but those times are few and far between.
It's rather annoying after having played (just the name another game) Exos-Heroes, you basically never have to restart it if you keep it in the background, you can just get in and out of it with no problems
Also, I'm using a Razer Phone 2 (snapdragon 845/8gb ram, Android 9) so the phone is definitely not the "problem" here
Oh and if you guys have the option to force the app to stay in RAM (the s20 has it for example) can you tell me if this "problem" is no more?
Today, while introducing Met's La Donna del Lago, Patricia Racette said: "In this opera a mezzo-soprano gets a mezzo-soprano in the end... tough luck for tenors!" - referring to a mezzo-soprano in a "trouser role", - and I thought it's funny in some specifically opera way. (The very expression "trouser role" is, I think, another opera humor item).
Let's exchange some examples of opera humor :):):)

I've been getting into sci-fi lately but all of the recommendations have not been my cup of tea really. Someone recommended the Palladium Wars series. Its good, but the writing is too simple for me. I hope this isn't perceived as condescending, but if a 10-year-old can read it, It really can't interest me.
Criteria I'm looking for: war, politics, space-opera dialogue, morality, etc.
Any recommendations for a more mature sci-fi book/series that has some more sophisticated prose/diction to boast?
Narrated by the hyper-talented Mark Boyett, my Ixan Legacy series tells the story of humanity's struggle for survival against an all-powerful alien foe...
...and I've unearthed a limited number of Audible download codes to share for the series!
It's first-come, first-served.
Here's what to do:
1 Check out the series page and see if it piques your interest
2 Comment below and tell me if you need a code for US or UK
Do that, and I'll message out codes until they run out.
(Audible doesn't offer codes outside of US and UK sadly.)
Note - so that I stay in compliance with Audible's Conditions of Use: the idea with these codes is that you'll leave a review after listening. I'm the author of this series, and your review goes a long way.
Thank you for your support. :)
UPDATE: I'm out of US codes but working on trying to get some new ones. If you're in the US and interested in the series, you can still com... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm NOT, in any way or form or shape, debating whether Luciano Pavarotti is a GREAT opera singer. He IS. My question is if you think he's levels above all the other opera singers like many people presume?
Out of curiosity, I installed WoTV (the new final fantasy mobile game). Impressed by the graphics, Cgi and battle mechanics, I thought that this would be my mobile game besides Opera omnia. Sadly this is not the case after a longer session with it. While playing it, I really understood why I kept playing opera omnia. Dffoo is so consumer friendly and just fun to play. There are things I don't like (artifacts for example) but when comparing to the abomination of grinding in WoTV, I could feel Dffoo is a one of a lifetime gacha game. I don't want to hate in WoTV. It is a beautiful game but come on. This game is so packed with different resources, it does overwhelm you. It's just sad to see another mobile game that wants to make money by making f2p a pure torture. What do you think about opera omnia vs other gacha games?
Lo so sembra una domanda idiota ma ogni tanto si legge di operazioni di 10+ ore, quindi nel mentre come fanno i loro bisogni i chirurghi? Pannoloni? Sì scambiano? Scusate per il dubbio scemo.
Edit: some additional resources for some FAQs I've seen popping up in the comments:
- Turn-based JRPG, no Stamina system except for some limited farming areas.
- Not Pay2Win: there's no PvP in the game and end-game content isn't time-limited: tackle it at your own pace.

Hey everyone, I've just launched the Entropy/FEOD tracking section of Opera Omnia Tracker.
For anyone not aware of the tracker, it can be used to keep track of your character/equipment roster in DFFOO, find other players to add as friends, and now of course keep track of your Entropy tier clears.
Just like with the friend directory, an account isn't needed to view teams other players have used to clear a tier. Having an account will open up a range of features though!
Through each page of the Entropy section you'll be shown a list of all your unused characters, separated into different sections dependent on their best weapon. They're then given a score from the rest of their equipment/levels/summon boards and sorted by that. Clicking a character here will take you to their char... keep reading on reddit ➡
The PC strategy game "Stellaris" is quite possibly my favorite game of all time, definitely my favorite game now. Besides being a really good space empire building game, it's got some great little stories with it's events, anomalies, archaeology sites,etc from both the base game and the many many mods that are available for it.
I know this might be a difficult ask, but I'd love to find a sci-fi book or series that has a similar feel. Maybe something that follows a species from it's first jaunt to the stars to it's establishment of a galactic empire. Something with lots of different sci-fi concepts, lots of aliens, crazy technologies, space battles, and a focus on the overall big picture rather then a small set of characters.
