Well, I am back. Its been well over a year since I last posted but I am ready to start blogging again. So, what happened to me in the past year?
Work made it very difficult to game, much less write about gaming. I worked as management in a retail store and my store has been a particular challenge over the last 1.5 years, finally culminating in me taking a severance and finding new employment. The stress levels were outrageous and I simply never felt like gaming or doing much of anything.
Thankfully, that is behind me now. I now have a new job that is completely out of retail, making more money and a lot less stress. Because of this, I am going to get back into gaming and thus back into blogging.
I am not really playing anything currently as nothing really interests me out there right now. I played a bit of Rift and it is still an excellent game but I am still somewhat weary of the old hot-key style WoW combat. GW2 was a let down for me for a number of reasons that I will probably make separate post for this week.
I believe my next MMO foray is going to be Elder Scrolls Online. I have played in numerous beta events and have really enjoyed the game. The first few levels are dead boring and I would not blame anyone for trying it and going away disappointed or underwhelmed. However, after level 10-15, the game seems to take a major turn for the better and becomes very engaging. The PvP is even better. The RvR seems to be done correctly and really improves upon GW2 RvR (or WvW as they call it). Not only is it fun but they have seemed to do wonders with the engine because lag and frame rate issues seem to be at a minimum, even with hundreds of players on screen at once.
However, that is enough for now. I need to make a dedicated ESO post as well, so expect that within a couple of days. For now, for the few readers who might still be subscribed, thank you for bearing with me this long!
