By now, you should have seen Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Nearly the whole universe bought tickets in advance, and the movie broke opening weekend box office records with ease. There’s nothing quite like seeing a Star Wars film on opening night, surrounded by cheering fans in a packed theater. If you haven’t had the pleasure, I strongly suggest you do so for the next movie.
In the aftermath of opening weekend, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a movie have such a polarizing effect on people. Everyone either loved it, or vehemently loathed it. There seemed to be very little in between. Personally, I thought it was excellent, but it was not without its flaws.
Some things I did enjoy: Continue reading →

Updated 10/12/2015: Here’s a new one from the Oct 10 NYCC Cantina:
All rejoice! If you were a previous subscriber to Elder Scrolls Online, that means that you bought the game. If you bought the game, that means you can now play it it even if you don’t have a subscription! I loved the game, but the group of guys I game with were swayed back to Warcraft. Don’t get me wrong, I love Warcraft too, but I won’t pay for 2 subscriptions at once. Well problem solved! I can now go back and continue my playing in ESO and not have to pay any more for it.
I started playing ESO the day it released, and from what I’ve read there are a lot of things that have changed since then. I’m anxious to get home from work and give it a whirl. See you on the field of battle!
Eight years ago, when I first played Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, I was awestruck with the sheer size and scale of the game. One of my first thoughts was, “They need to make this a multi-player game!” I’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of Elder Scrolls Online since before it was ever announced. Well here we are 8 years later, and my wish to see this game in a multi-player format has finally been granted. Early access began this past Sunday for those who pre-purchased the game.
As an added bonus, my wife Jenn and our oldest son David were equally excited about the game launch, along with several friends and guild-mates from back in the Warcraft days. Jenn and I even set our alarms for early Sunday morning so that we could get on as soon as the game opened up and reserve our character names.
Now I had played in several of the beta test events, and I already had a taste of what I could expect from the game. Truthfully, I was a little Continue reading →
Looking for Rough Maple, Iron Ore and Raw Jute? Well here’s the place you want to be.
I was able to gather about 500x Iron Ore, 500x Raw Jute and 300x Rough Maple in about an hour last night just running in circles.
The circuit took roughly 45 – 60 seconds, and by the time I made my way back around, the gathering nodes were respawning already. There was a little competition last night, but not enough to make it discouraging. Now as word spreads, this may change. I’m fairly certain that this area is going to see a nerf to either the amount of nodes or the respawn rate fairly soon. Get it while you can!
The area I’m referring to is in a circle surrounding the Wayshrine in the south east corner of Bal Foyen, illustrated below:
