Gaming at 4K: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Since Amazon had the Seiki 39″ 4K TV for a great price last week, I picked it up in the hopes of gaming at 4K. I have a reasonably decent PC with an NVidia 670 that can drive 4K monitors, so that part worked well, but there are some issues.

The monitor itself is a . . . → Read More: Gaming at 4K: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

My Love/Hate Relationship with Borderlands 2

Having played and thoroughly enjoyed Borderlands 2 when it first came out, I bought the Season Pass, but let the game languish as I played a few other games, had health issues that totally ruined my gaming ability for a while, and kept up with my Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO) and Star Trek . . . → Read More: My Love/Hate Relationship with Borderlands 2

Two #LOTRO Videos: Mounted Minstrel and Michel Delving Horse Race

I took two videos in LOTRO recently and thought I would share them.

The first is very short. I was experimenting with NVidia’s ShadowPlay in LOTRO and happened to turn it on just as a not very bright mounted orc started attacking me. I’m posting this to show how dangerous a mounted Minstrel can be. . . . → Read More: Two #LOTRO Videos: Mounted Minstrel and Michel Delving Horse Race

On the Importance of Game Controller Support

I was somewhat out of gaming action for medical reasons for more than a month. During that time, I was pretty much unable to use keyboard and mouse to play games. I was, however, able to use my Xbox 360 controller for Windows to play games that supported it. And that led me to discover . . . → Read More: On the Importance of Game Controller Support

Thirst for Power LOTRO kinship website removed

I’ve taken down the Thirst for Power website for lack of use. All it seemed to get were spam posts advertising fake designer bags.

Since the kinship is similarly a ghost town, I don’t think anyone but me will miss it.

My fourth character through Great River discovers new quest line in #LOTRO

What the heck?!? My Lore Master, who is a completionist and has done pretty much every solo and most small fellowship quests in LOTRO, didn’t see it. My Hunter and Warden also went through Great River, but were rushing to Rohan and didn’t do all the quests, so they didn’t see it either.

Last night, . . . → Read More: My fourth character through Great River discovers new quest line in #LOTRO

The slow, sad death of a LOTRO kinship

My LOTRO kinship, Thirst for Power, has had a long, interesting lifespan with serious ups and downs, and is now down for the count. I am the only regular player that has been on for weeks. Sure there are one or two others that leave alts in the kinship, but no playtime logged except for . . . → Read More: The slow, sad death of a LOTRO kinship

LOTRO: Snowbourne Mounted Daily

Today’s mounted daily mission video (and this is the last for a while, so you can relax and stop being bored by me) is the one given at Snowbourne, a large city in the south west of the playable area of Eastern Rohan. This is my favorite of the mounted missions because we need to . . . → Read More: LOTRO: Snowbourne Mounted Daily

LOTRO: Eaworth Mounted Daily

Like the daily mounted mission from Harwick, this mission involves taking on mounted enemies while being on your war-steed. In this case, however, some of the enemies have about 5 times the morale (hit points) as the normal ones here and in Harwick. In this playthrough, I avoided those guys, but I’ve had to fight . . . → Read More: LOTRO: Eaworth Mounted Daily

LOTRO Tour 11: Thorenhad to Rivendell

In our continuing quest to travel to the ends of Middle Earth (at least without area transitions), we now leave the moron sons of Elrond and head to Rivendell to meet up with Lord Elrond in his library. We don’t take a hidden passage that Peter Jackson decided was appropriate for The Hobbit movie, but . . . → Read More: LOTRO Tour 11: Thorenhad to Rivendell
