galaxies and shires

I’ve just finished Mass Effect: Andromeda and I really enjoyed it.  On the downside, there were a few too many ‘busy’ tasks which I ignored and the planets felt a bit… rushed, I suppose.  I did expect more differences in the flora and fauna between planets.  I think playing it way after launch was beneficial…

#skyrim and #eq2

Huh well.  Earlier this week I’d decided that posting every day was a bit much, and would instead go to Mon-Weds-Fri, which is a pattern of posting I really like and would like to stick to.  So I chucked a pre-prepared post out on Monday with the aim of posting this on Wednesday.  Except I…

inventory full (and bank and crates)

Post 5 of Blaugust Reborn There have been a couple of posts I’ve seen writing about inventory problems (we need the gaming equivalent of house hoarders I think!) sparked from Inventory Full’s writing prompts. Jeromai – GW2: Inventory Woes Endalia – Guild Wars 2 – Inventory Full Rakuno – Inventory Woes Bhagpuss – All We’ll…

#skyrim still playing

Post 2 of blaugustreborn I’m still very much enjoying Skyrim, I can’t believe what a difference having the Legacy of the Dragonborn mod has made.  I still haven’t run through the Thieves Guild questline yet!  I’ve finished the Dragonborn and Dawnguard questlines for the first time (very fun) and managed to restrict myself to two…

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…
