my 2016 in games

blog: well, I’ve managed to keep it going although some months were very quiet.  For the time I managed it, I did enjoy the tues/wed/fri regular posting so I may try that for next year.  Like, really try… maybe… single player games:   I finally played through the Mass Effect series – well, I’m halfway…

catching up

so this was supposed to be written on Friday (and I missed my MMO screenshot post too).  I’ve had one hell of a week, nothing too awful but felt totally drained by sorting out a lot of old stuff (am allergic to house dustmite and was sneezing almost constantly, which caused me to feel absolutely…

flashpoints and dungeons

My Jedi Shadow is now level 37, mostly thanks to doing the first three solo flashpoints.  I’m overlevelled for Tatooine now but that’s fine, Alderaan still to go.  I really enjoyed the flashpoints though, the robot is super helpful.  I really like that you get a picture to hang in your apartment for the various…

#swtor: maybe this time?

I’m sort of blaming Arin for this one (this is only fair as I dragged her into GW2 😉 ) but anyway, I copied her and started playing SWToR again.  This is possibly the 3rd or 4th attempt now.  I don’t want to play this as a MMO as I have enough of those on…

Blaugust Day 22 ~ gaming plans and catchup

Firstly, huge apologies to my fellow blaugusters.  I am completely and hopelessly behind on posts after my holiday.  I will try and get liking and commenting soon 🙂 So Gaming Plans.  I felt it deserved captitalising.  I’m going to split this into two parts, my immediate gaming plans and those I would like to do……

SW:ToR beginnings (again)

Well I ended up in SWTOR a bit sooner than I planned – they have a couple of offers and I thought well, why not.  I have played a bit before, I got a smuggler up to about level 22, chose the wrong path (healer) and was so irritated that I just lost interest.  I also…

Birthday #3

post 27 of blaugust So today is my birthday and so far I’ve had a lovely day.  I got some fab pressies, a very cool Adventure Time tin, pencil and eraser set from my little boy.  Dimzad got me a very cool gaming mouse, the most gorgeous cloth-bound set of The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings…

ESO, SWToR, Doctor Who & a 6 yr old

post 24 of blaugust ESO I recently allowed the littlun to make a character in ESO as he is quite interested in the game and I was quite curious to see what he’d come up with.  A massive huge orc is the answer!  He wasn’t interested in the other races at all, as soon as…

My character(s)

Post 16 of blaugust My main character is always a wood elf.  She is always a rogue type, either ranged or dual wielding. assuming of course the game gives you these choices.   For a RPG type game, I won’t play it at all if I don’t have at least have a gender choice.  I’ve got…
