Why I probably won’t get back into Elder Scrolls Online.

I kind of want to get back into Elder Scrolls Online. It’s a fun MMO, with good writing and decent combat.  I don’t really have a good guild relationship in it yet, but I’m sure that I could find one.

But dear Lord those updates are killer.  As in, don’t play for any length of time and you lose most of the day.  I don’t know if this is the rule for other MMOs like WoW, but it drove me sufficiently nuts that I haven’t played in a year (which makes the updates worse, obviously) and I’m on the verge of canceling my subscription.  About the only thing stopping me is that I’m afraid that I’d have to update the game to get to the point where I could cancel…

[UPDATE]: Woops! Hit Publish too soon. The new Summerset expansion sounds like it’s going to be fun.


I suppose that I should drop Elder Scrolls Online.

I haven’t played Elder Scrolls Online in over a year, and I am absolutely dreading the idea of all the downloading that would come with updating it.  It took half a day just to start the game in the first place, because there was wave after wave after wave of multi-gig updates.  It’s a lovely looking game, but it’s just too damned big to download online effectively. (more…)


Oh, hey, Thieves Guild has dropped for Elder Scrolls Online.

I’ll have to check it out later. I’ve only been intermittently mucking about with The Elder Scrolls and The Secret World MMOs lately; no real excuse on ESO, though, because there’s still a bunch of content there that I haven’t mucked about with, yet. Something to look forward too…


…Sorry, folks.

Video games. Nothing more profound than that: I was killing plague zombies and mad cultists in a video game this evening.  And I feel no shame.

PS: Elder Scrolls Online, for the morbidly curious.


New Witcher, Dragon Age Inquisition DLC.

Neither being the big ones, but Game Plus and The Descent might prove of interest. To be honest, I’m not in a rush to get either. Issue 12 of The Secret World is about to drop and I’m getting along in Elder Scrolls Online*: and when those are done I’ve got a bit of a backlog. I can always revisit The Witcher: Wild Hunt and Dragon Age Inquisition later.  There’s really not much of a rush, honestly.
