Elder Scrolls MMO?

Image From donthatethegeek.com

This was something that, for better or worse, was bound to happen. Due to the elder scrolls being a popular RPG with a fairly dedicated following some company was bound to jump on the opportunity to make an MMORPG based on the elder scrolls world. Yeah… I don’t really know what to think about this. The Elder Scrolls has been a franchise I’ve really enjoyed. Each of their games have been thoroughly enjoying and honestly I don’t like the idea of a Elder Scrolls MMO. All fantasy MMOs are the same the only difference is how popular it is. So I certainly will not be partaking in this game. Mostly because I play games to have fun not to get addicted to them, and I know from experience that that is what MMORPGs do. My experience comes from the times I call “my dark days of gaming”, which is in which I played World of Warcraft. Yeah I know it’s pretty bad, but this was quite a long time ago. About 4 years ago to be exact, when I was young, dumb, and impressionable. So I suppose I’m getting a little off track, so whats the bottom line? Well I think this game will do extremely well, but I think it would be cooler if they made an online fallout. Because fallout has a completely unique landscape, story, and so on. It would be much more original, and I love originality.

And There Goes My Speakers

 

A while ago my relatively new laptop was having these problems with its speakers, the sound would cut in and out. It wouldn’t happen all the time, just enough to be nuisance. Until eventually the speakers stopped working all together. Great. Strangely enough, a person from dell called not to long after my speakers went dead to see if I was satisfied with my Laptop. I of course proceeded to tell him about my speaker problem. He gave me the number I should call to get it fixed and a special code I could enter so that I wouldn’t have to navigate the seemingly endless automated machines.

That was about two weeks ago, and I still haven’t called. Mainly due to the fact that I have a very simple way around the problem, I just plug my laptop into my fairly good speaker system and just like that, I have sound. Calling them just sounds like such a hassle and there really inst that much of a reason if I have a seamless way around the problem. But of course I will call them eventually, just so my laptop is independent of my room.

My Team

I’m not exactly proud of it, but I got pretty sucked into the Pokemon on my PC. and considering my gaming time has been limited at best, I decided to do a post about it.

This time around I decided to go with one of the most well rounded teams I could think of, while still throwing in a few of my favorites where I could. My favorite Pokemon of all time being Charizard.

It has been very fun having a completely original season Pokemon team, since the original Pokemon designs were by far the best.

My New Skyrim Character

Switching over to PC definitely breathed new life into Skyrim for me, which has been exciting. Especially since I could really plan out my what my character would be like before I started this time. I decided to go with a Necromancer type build, but not necessarily a typical one.

She is practically a warrior who specializes in dual wielding swords, bow and arrow, and raising the dead. Her name is Desiree. I believe the main thing that has appealed to me about PC gaming has been the opportunity to modify the game. Most of the mods I have installed have been re-texture mods, and quest adding mods. I need to be careful though, because I don’t want to ruin the game for myself. That’s why I don’t install very many weapon or armor mods, because I don’t want to make the game too easy. I have a lot of plans for my future characters and I can’t wait to get started.

Living In a Gamers Paradise

Everyday I wake up in what most would consider to be an over the top gamers room, but to me, it’s just my room. My room includes all 4 major mediums of gaming, two flat screen TVs, and an HD PVR. So without further ado, here they are.

First of all, my personal plasma flat screen TV, gaming consoles are practically useless without them.

Here you see my HD PVR, my Xbox 360, and my Wii. The main gaming console I use is the Xbox. Most Wii exclusive games suck, but there are a few gems that I like enough to continue owning a Wii for.

On the other side of my TV you see my Playstation 3. When it comes to the war between Xbox and Playstation I am fully on Xbox’s side. I like Xbox exclusive games much better, and the Xbox network kicks PSN’s ass. But I definitely acknowledge that there are many quality Playstation exclusives, therefor I own a PS3.

Hanging across the room is my 2nd TV, which I primarily use to watch TV shows on. My friends always complain about its awkward height when they have to play Xbox on it.

Here is my spare Xbox, the reason I have two is this one got red ring some time ago, I bought a new one but never got rid of this one, after a few years this one was working again.

And here is the newest addition to my gamer’s paradise, my Alienware x17. It is awesome. nuff said.

The Wonderful World of Modding

While entering the world of modding, I had a bit of a rough start, but I think I’m getting the hang of it. I’ve only tried modding Skyrim so far which should be easy with nexus mod manager. But it kept on coming up with an error message, and instead of trying to fix it I tried my luck at dealing with manually installing the mods. This proved to be foolish and incredibly frustrating.

I would like to say I quickly gave up on this endeavor, but sadly I did not. I spent a great deal of time trying to figure it out, until I resorted to uninstalling and then re-installing Skyrim and Nexus mod manager. Luckily, that worked. But even now I don’t fully understand how to work Nexus mod manager, and I may completely switch to steam workshop. Which is easy to use, one button and done.

Yeah not very exciting pic, but what do you expect? I’m just talking about mods…

That is not to say I haven’t had success, I have gotten the majority of my mods to work. But I do feel as though I need to be careful with modding. People always talk about people who are sensitive to mods that are “lore breaking”, I don’t care so much about breaking lore, as I do breaking the game. What I mean by that is, I don’t want to mod in the most powerful spells and armor of all time. I enjoy playing games like this because I can see the progress I make, and see my hard work pay off by getting sweet armor. If I just modded in overpowered stuff the game would be ruined for me. So most of the mods I will be adding will be graphic, design, and extra quest mods.

And Goodbye (console) Fallout

I suppose this is much more of a hello, than a goodbye, for I sadly haven’t been playing fallout at all. So that will make this transition easier and harder. Since I haven’t been playing Fallout at all it will be refreshing to play it again, but on the other hand I have put much more time and effort into my Fallout avatars than my Skyrim avatars.

My first Avatar, Vittor:

He is completely righteous and primarily uses guns, and unarmed.

My other avatar, Scarlet:

She only does things if it benefits her, she uses energy weapons, explosives, and unarmed.

So yeah it will be hard to part with these two wasteland Juggernauts, but I’m sure I will make equally badass and awesome avatars on my PC.
