Yesterday evening saw the first login to Elder Scrolls Online, or any MMO, for that matter, since we’ve returned from China. Zharyon That’s the name of our guild- yesterday, a commenter here made the connection between this blog and that… Continue Reading →
I went into Hew’s Bane and started playing the Thieves Guild DLC with some guildies. I also talk a bit about EQ Next, the layoffs at Carbine, The Division, Black Desert and travel to china next week.
This week should have been big- really big. The Elder Scrolls’ Thieves Guild DLC launched, The Division launched and it is only week 2 of Black Desert Online. So there were three games i really like that needed my attention. And then…i decided to let it all pass me by.
Well, i was sick again. That’s why my Friday Quick Notes are Monday Quick Notes this week. But actually, i like it this way- i think i’ll keep it- monday is a good day to take a look at the previous week and set some goals for the next one. Today, i share a few first impressions on Black Desert Online, what i did in ESO last week and at the Batmobile in Rocket League.
Is it possible to create one of those tight-knit, 10+ years small social guilds in today’s MMORPG environment? And if it is, what are ways to achieve that goal? A few thoughts on that subject.
Stealth is not something i like a lot when playing games- i usually don’t roll rogue-type characters and even in other genres (FPS), i don’t like the stealthy ones. Since the justice system went live in Elder Scrolls Online, i haven’t stolen anything, mainly because i don’t really understand the risk i’d take and the system behind it in general. Of all zone types, the desert is one of the least interesting environments to me, topped only by “lava” zones. Still, as time moves on, i find myself increasingly excited for the Thieves Guild DLC that’ll come to ESO in march.
