Finally arrived at Dol Amroth in LOTRO

After a bit of questing in West Gondor, my Lore Master finally made it to the city of Dol Amroth in LOTRO. The city looks great with tremendous detailing on the stonework and the doors. Swans and statues of swans are present everywhere. The city has a number of districts, and you are given a . . . → Read More: Finally arrived at Dol Amroth in LOTRO

Destiny is KILLING me!

Destiny has been out for a few weeks, and while the critics kind of hate it and the shine is wearing off because of all the grinding, it still has me in its clutches. Whereas LOTRO or Star Trek Online used to be my “comfort games,” now Destiny fills that role. I always felt like . . . → Read More: Destiny is KILLING me!

Finished Destiny’s Story Missions

I finished the “story missions” in Destiny last night after nearly 18 hours of play. So all the people that claimed the Destiny world is small (myself included in previous posts) are both right and wrong. It turns out that we only get a small region to explore on each of the game worlds (Earth, . . . → Read More: Finished Destiny’s Story Missions

Glitches in the Destiny matrix

I played the first 4 missions of Destiny last night and enjoyed them, even though they were exactly like the beta, as far as I could tell. I got the slight impression that thing were a little harder than the beta, but that may just have been my lack of practice. But I did notice . . . → Read More: Glitches in the Destiny matrix

Fellow Guardians, I did buy Destiny for PS4

Despite my previous plans not to buy Destiny, I did pre-order it at the last hour, so now my PS4 surely has it all downloaded so I can play tonight.

I didn’t succumb to the hype, but I bought it because some of my friends pre-ordered it, and I decided that if I wanted to . . . → Read More: Fellow Guardians, I did buy Destiny for PS4

Replaying Mass Effect with a FemShep

After I finished Assassin’s Creed IV, I was looking for a new game to play. I’ve played all the Mass Effect games, but always as the stock male Shepard. I’ve been told that playing as a FemShep (female Shepard) opens up new dialogs, and the “sex” scenes may be different, etc. So I decided to . . . → Read More: Replaying Mass Effect with a FemShep

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

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
