Done with Destiny, Back to LOTRO and STO

Between griefers and trouble finishing a Heroic Strike while wearing a Speaker mask, I’m just done with the frustration of Destiny and the Festival of the Lost. I’m tired of doing pointless quests for a random chance at crap. So I’m taking a vacation from Destiny (in fact, I nearly deleted it out of frustration, . . . → Read More: Done with Destiny, Back to LOTRO and STO

Star Trek Online for PS4 is pretty good!

Star Trek Online for PS4 is Star Trek Online. Sure, the controls are different from the PC version, and it’s a little dumbed down, but the basics of the game is still there and it is still fun. It also looks pretty good, so they’re taking good advantage of the PS4’s graphics capabilities. There were . . . → Read More: Star Trek Online for PS4 is pretty good!

Fun and Frustration in Star Trek Online

I’ve been playing a lot of Star Trek Online recently. In fact, I’ve played more in the last couple weeks than I played in the previous couple years. The Risa Summer Festival is what got me back in, because I wanted a nice new ship (and it is a nice Escort class ship), but the . . . → Read More: Fun and Frustration in Star Trek Online

Finished Witcher 3 DLC, back to Dragon Age Inquisition

My poor non-multitasking brain can’t handle playing too many games at once, mostly because I get the controls mixed up, so I tend to try to finish a game, then move on (MMOs excepted). So I just finished the excellent Witcher 3 Blood and Wine DLC, and had to decide on a new game. Finishing . . . → Read More: Finished Witcher 3 DLC, back to Dragon Age Inquisition

Still gaming, just not writing enough

I’ve been too silent on here for too long. I’ve been playing lots of games, but I haven’t been writing my impressions of them, and oh boy do I have impressions to share. So I’ll try to write more frequently about some of the games I mention here.

I’ve finally broken Destiny’s hold on me, . . . → Read More: Still gaming, just not writing enough

Fretting about what games to play!

I have an odd problem, though probably not so unusual these days when people have Steam libraries that number in the hundreds of games as well as consoles full of PS+ and Games with Gold “freebies”: I can’t find a game that I want to play.

I’m still playing Destiny more than is healthy, and . . . → Read More: Fretting about what games to play!

Star Trek Online: Making a Fat Bajoran on Risa. Adventures of Lt. Cmdr. Fatass

I decided to experiment with the character editor to make my Bajoran Female character look more like the reality of myself and many other ‘Muricans with a little (or a lot of) extra weight. Unlike all the other avatars I see in their tiny swimsuits on Risa, Lt. Cmdr. FatAss here has as large a . . . → Read More: Star Trek Online: Making a Fat Bajoran on Risa. Adventures of Lt. Cmdr.

Star Trek Online Graphics Bug: Flying Without a Floater

Even with yesterday’s patch, my studly Joined Trill Admiral in Star Trek Online is so badass that he can fly in the Risa events without a floater. Or at least he’s pretty good at hiding his floater (the jetpack thing used on Risa). The video below shows it. I think it is the outfit he . . . → Read More: Star Trek Online Graphics Bug: Flying Without a Floater

Star Trek Online Swimsuits on Risa

I’ve been enjoying the Star Trek Online Summer Festival on Risa, working towards the “pearls” needed for both the Risian Corvette and the Risian Cruiser. I’m also busy earning “favors” to get swimsuits for my two female captains. Now that I’ve achieved that (see below), I will look into better jetpacks and even shorts for . . . → Read More: Star Trek Online Swimsuits on Risa

Sexism in the Star Trek Online Graphics Engine?

I really like the relatively recent update to the initial character screen in Star Trek Online. It shows your heroic Captain as well as the 4 main Bridge Officers (BOffs) with your majestic starship up above. I recently broke my long tradition of only playing male characters in MMOs by creating a Klingon female Captain . . . → Read More: Sexism in the Star Trek Online Graphics Engine?
