Did they getcha? Did they suck you in again for another go-round? I have a flurry of guildies in World of Warcraft right now thanks to Battle for Azeroth, and yet I haven’t been enticed to go back. In fact, Legion was the first expansion I didn’t buy or go back during, and now we’re at the next one and I’m still in exactly the same shruggy place. I’m not saying I’m over it forever. I’m not saying I’ll never go back. The game just isn’t doing it for me personally right now. There are things they could do that would make me whip out my wallet: new classes (bards!), real housing, a meaningful economy – maybe something that replicates the exploration amusement of vanilla, the dungeon joy of Wrath, or the questing and farm fun of Pandaria. Probably plenty of cool things I haven’t even thought of could get me in there; the truth is, I am a sucker for the idea of playing The Big One, secure in the knowledge that it’s … [Read more...] about The Daily Grind: Did you go back to World of Warcraft for Battle for Azeroth?
Ub40 where did i go wrong mp3
not to get too hyped, but this game sounds like something from my dreams. I've always disliked class systems that lock you into a role. I've always disliked straight up faction vs faction systems. There are some games that come close but always end up just being an endless level grind. I really hope the devs are able to pull of a "no grind" mmo. … [Read more...] about How did I not know about this game until now?
Today I have a riveting tale from our long running compendium of things not going as planned, soon to be made into a major motion picture. The sequence of events that I was expecting yesterday was to go to work and then around noon head home to wait for the air conditioning folks to come service our unit. When we upgraded to the nonsense thing as tall as I am… one of its quirks is that instead of a small filter it has a mega HEPA filter and a light that is supposed to kill bacteria as it circulates through. This apparatus is supposed to be replaced every year, but for the last three visits they have not had the correct part on the truck so we are going on two years with the same bits. I made certain that I asked ahead this time when we scheduled the maintenance that they bring the correct part so that it could be changed. In theory the serviceman was supposed to arrive around 1 pm and my thought was originally that I could have a relaxing afternoon … [Read more...] about More Things Going Wrong
Play Elder Scrolls OnlineEven though I don’t believe that Summerset was the best choice for the next expansion for the Elder Scrolls Online, that doesn’t mean that the chapter is without merit. According to ZeniMax Online Creative Director Rich Lambert, Summerset will be bigger and have more to do than Morrowind. It’s hard to believe that the actual island is bigger, but I do believe that there is much more playable area on Summerset than on Vvardenfell because it doesn’t have a giant volcano sitting in the middle of it taking up a lot of room. Because this island hasn’t been seen since Elder Scrolls: Arena, it’s hard to know what to expect from this land. We know that certain things exist, like the Crystal Tower and the home of the Psijic Order Artaeum, but we haven’t ever really seen some of these places in any games. Because I’m a lore buff, I’d like to take a few moments to talk about the first settlers of the Summerset Isles, … [Read more...] about Tamriel Infinium: Where did the Elder Scroll Online Summerset come from?
Why am I not earning even a penny a day? What mistakes am I making? What the hell am I doing wrong? Like thousand others bloggers, I’m striving for the same answer. Sometimes it’s so frustrating that I feel like quitting. Sometimes I wonder is it really what I want to do. Is it what really I am intended to do? Do I like doing what I do? Meanwhile, I started reading books, watched inspirational success stories, looked for the answers in TEDx talks. I literally started hunting how to get success. After reading some inspirational books or watching an inspirational video, I get inspired like hell. Here is one such video: It seems all easy then. At first I stay full of sparks. Ideas keep exploding in my head. The next day it slows down a bit. Things get a little calm, and I’m like – Okay enough of the videos, let’s do some real work now. I take out the laptop, sit down and look for a topic to write on. After choosing a random topic, I started writing. … [Read more...] about What am I doing wrong: Letter of a Frustrated Blogger to himself
