no: house; yes: mods

ESO: The most gorgeous house (in my opinion) they’ve released so far, is currently available for a short period of time. I absolutely love it, from the fact that the whole space is outdoors, there is a complete ship and a shipwrecked half-ship to live in plus ruins and nooks.  Most importantly there is plenty…

#skyrim oops

welp, the resistance totally failed… maybe it was the ESVI teaser at E3, maybe it was the announcement of the new Blades app due out later this year…  against my expectations, I’m back in Skyrim obviously, and glad about it – am having an absolute blast. Obviously I first had the fun of modding (and…

craft the world

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned Craft the World on my blog before, but it’s one I play when I just fancy getting away from it all.  I really enjoy the mix of exploration, combat, building and defence. I’ve been working my way through the Campaign which leads you through four biome types (forest, ice,…

The Witcher

I think around the time everyone was getting excited about the release of the Witcher 3, I picked up 1 & 2 on steam very cheaply.  I thought I’d play through the series rather than just jumping straight into 3. They’ve sat there for a while now… I recently remembered I’d bought them and on…

what to play

so just a summary of what I’m playing and what I might play in the near future. MMOs (ESO & Lotro) The grouping side of things has gone a little quiet and I’m quite liking that at the moment.  It’s mostly self imposed, I could find groups to run dungeons if I wanted but I…

9th blogoversary

Yeah… I had to double check that, but my first ever post was on 22 Jan 2009 /faint.  To be fair, that has included a fair few breaks and an extremely slack posting schedule.  I started off with the aim of describing my adventures and having somewhere to dump some screenshots.  The blog could be…

#DAI dragon age: hard in hightown

The news of an actual print version of this being available later this year cheered me up immensely.  Due out in July this year and authored by the one and only Varric Tethras (and Mary Kirby of course), I’ll be very disappointed if there isn’t a review by Cassandra or the Randy Dowager Quarterly (I…

all the elder scrolls

I don’t know what it is about this series but it’s kept me hooked for nigh on 20 years now…  Well probably something about the sneaking, the thieving, the freedom, the world… 😉 Anyway, I have been playing a LOT of ESO.  I have a regular Thursday evening dungeon group with friends which is always…

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…
