I was fortunate to participate in the Welcome Back Weekend for Elder Scrolls Online. I was invited to download the game and play because I had been in the beta test in 2013. The reason I didn’t stay are no longer relevant anymore. I am glad they gave me a chance to look at the game in a new light. A lot has changed since beta and from what I can see it was for the better that those changes were made. So many changes that I can’t wait to play again, even with me having to use the WASD keys, yuck!

Even though I had a great time with the event there were a few hiccups along the way. The download was over 35 gigabytes and on a high speed instead of broadband connection it took me about 3 nights of downloading to get it all. So I was all set when the event started except when I tried to log in they have a computer verification system.

Stronghold Kingdoms Online

Stronghold-Kingdoms-OnlineThe online version of the popular 2d/3d isometric castle games imagined by Firefly Studios. It is a turn based and yet a RTS at the same time. It is one of the better castle defense and attack games that is out there with both free and paid memberships to keep you building castles until the wee hours of the night or morning.

This game is truly addictive as you start from nothing more than a Village Idiot to that of a king of an entire region. You start your Stronghold life with nothing more than a small keep which you then have to manage. You have to see to the needs of your subjects but also the safety of them as well. You do this by placing buildings in your village that will help to maintain it as well as provide resources to both build with and trade with. As you build up your resources you are able to build your castle which defends your village. Much time is going to be spent building and maintaining that thing, so make sure you always have resources on hand, especially have a bandit or player attack.

EverQuest II is a pretty good game to play. This still isn’t better than Guild Wars or Call of Duty. This game does beat EverQuest, though. The graphics do not look Nintendo 64 graphics and the gameplay runs smooth. This game look like Oblivion meets Guild Wars. Why? Because the graphics looks like Oblivion and the gameplay runs like Guild Wars.

Well, Oblivion came out around 2006 and Guild Wars came out around 2005, but this game came out around 2004. So, this game was out before Oblivion and Guild Wars. The character creation is better than Oblivion, but not Guild Wars. I liked the character creation because I can make the girls look cute and sexy. You can chose different hair styles you want, but you can’t color their hair blue, green, and pink. You can color there hair red, brown, blond, and even white. If you want anime hair, you can choose white. You don’t see face detail in this game. You can only see it in Oblivion, but not this game. Well, the girls are cuter than before.
