Firstly, huge apologies to my fellow blaugusters. I am completely and hopelessly behind on posts after my holiday. I will try and get liking and commenting soon 🙂
So Gaming Plans. I felt it deserved captitalising. I’m going to split this into two parts, my immediate gaming plans and those I would like to do…
ESO ~ Well, the new DLC is not too far off now (yay!) so I am just treading water at the moment. Hopefully will be fitting in some grouping with Arin (and Aeo and Leron if they’re not on holiday yet), possibly some Carry on Craglorn with Arin and the Guild and maybe some Guild PvP… Other than that, it’s scrabbling around for XP to level vamp on my NB, provisioning writs and some achievement hunting to do.
GW2 ~ I’ve jumped into an all-Thieves levelling gang with my GGG guild. This should be a LOT of fun. They are really great company and I remember the all-healer pug raids in EQ2 as being incredibly fun. I’ll potter about on my ranger when I have time too.
Lotro ~ I would really like to get Mallendis (loremaster) through the latest epic story and catch Eldaeriel (hunter) up on the epic story too. Two MMOs is far too much to be dealing with, so a third… I think I can do this though by just concentrating on the epic story. I do love this game, even with the changes. It’s so gorgeous, I can just wander around this world looking and listening and feel happy…
SWToR ~ I do like this MMO and I would really like to at least finish the Smuggler storyline. I think if I did that, I would feel that I had ‘done’ the game. Which is not knocking the game at all, if there weren’t ESO and GW2, I could probably play here quite happily.
Dragon Age ~ I still haven’t done Perfect Playthroughs (PP – thanks Arin ;)) of any of these. Inquisition is at the top of the list for a PP but hmm not yet 🙂
Mass Effect ~ argh! I really want to play through these but I just can’t manage it for some reason… (actually list above is probably a good start for why :P) Perhaps I need to set aside a week and say THIS IS MASS EFFECT WEEK – YOU WILL BE SHEPHARD AND FIGURE OUT HOW THE GUN SYSTEM WORKS. Apparently I’m not the only one who can’t drive the Mako either which made me feel better.
Fallout ~ I’ve always been interested in this series but not actually interested enough to play it until I saw the Skyrim-enhanced housing system for Fallout 4. Dimzad is a huge fan (he has a Pip boy pre-ordered!) so I will be a Fallout 4 widow come November (haha yay! guilt free MMO time for me!!) I’m considering playing Fallout 3 at-some-point™
The Witcher ~ I did start playing Witcher 1 and it does look as though it is a good story and worth playing through. Again this is a playthrough that might happen at-some-point™
I’ve been having a nightmare with ESO and my Nvidia card. I keep getting a kernel driver crash, only with ESO and only intermittently. Which means it’s a complete bastard to track down what is happening. I’m partly convinced that it’s something to do with ESO builds and hoping that I’ve solved it with a clean install of the GPU drivers. I’ve even disabled ESO addons which now feels like I’m playing blind… Hopefully a few more group nights might show whether or not the re-install has worked…
I’ve been delaying installing Windows 10 until I know whether or not the problem has been solved (plus I’m putting off the dreadful task of backing stuff up… far too many screenshots, Vanguard install (the emulator is awesome so far), too much footage of dragon age inquisition – I really should just delete it. I really want to update then clean install to my SSD (which doesn’t have enough room for the My Documents shite and my head can’t cope with the steps involved at the moment). I do think that probably updating to Windows 10 won’t make a blind bit of difference to my GPU problem anyhow…
argh! gratuitous screenshot below
