With the release of update 5.10.4 today, Star Wars: The Old Republic players — both free-to-play and preferred — now have access to all kinds of handy benefits. That’s right, hotbars have been added, medical probes are unlimited, and credit caps have been increased. Oh, and did we mention the unlimited quick travel? Yes, it’s for everyone. As far as the big news for the update goes, that’s pretty much it — oh except for something labeled in the patch notes as just “?????” with a note that there are “mysterious observers” near the Odessen base. So, maybe go check that out. As always, if you’re interested in the rest of the patch notes, they are available on the SWTOR site. … [Read more...] about SWTOR Update 5.10.4 Gives Everyone More Of Everything

It’s that time of year again when we bloggers and writers pack up and head out to our version of summer camp, which we call Blaugust. Yesterday, Belghast announced the official start of this year’s month-long event, and I’ll let him introduce why this is both a fun and helpful way to get into or return to blogging: We live in a time when blogs are going dark and the hope is to keep infusing the community with a fresh lease on life. Those of us who have been doing it for over a decade now can easily lose hope. It sometimes takes a fresh batch of whippersnappers to keep us engaged and interested in making sure that the community thrives. Blaugust lives on as the inheritance of so many other great initiatives that have come before like the Developer Appreciation Week or the Newbie Blogger Initiative. If you have a blog that is waning in frequency, or if you ever thought of creating one… this month is the perfect time to put those plans into action. So head on over … [Read more...] about Blaugust wants your word-thoughts!

The first four wings of the Eden raid are available now in Final Fantasy XIV, which means more story developments following the end of the main expansion storyline along with a new set of gear to seek out. While the exact items being dropped by every wing have altered, the core of the gameplay will be familiar to players who have run the normal raids before; get a series of items, trade them in for equipment, one piece per week, and so forth. Finish the final one to earn a weapon token. Of course, this time around there’s the added wrinkle of not yet having the weekly limited tomestones available, so players will still be wearing the Ronkan gear for the first couple of weeks until those get added. Those are scheduled to be included when the raid’s Savage difficulty unlocks in two weeks. Until then, practice the normal content, acquire your … [Read more...] about Final Fantasy XIV starts the Eden raid with patch 5.01
