Just in case anyone is going to join me here are the required details:

Faction: Aldmeri Dominion
PvP Server: There are PvP servers (aka Campaigns). We will try and joint ‘Wabbajack’

– An exclusive race – The Imperials – playable on any faction.
– A free mount (with speed bonus)
– The ability to play any race in any faction (each faction usually only has 3 factions)
– Vanity pet, in-game items, and more!

So make sure you head over to the site and pick up ESO goodness.

That is all,

It seems that as the average age of gamers continues to rise we will be subjected to an increasing stream of ridiculous product ideas targeted at The Older Gamer.

You know, the older gamer who’s kids get in the way of having a bash, who still needs to be reminded to sleep occasionally, or have flashing signs installed above the heads of women who have common interests.

Some of these ideas may not even be dreadful (Razor can have the flashing signs idea for free), it could just be the presentation that sux…

Running commentary

  1. Looks alright. Need to see some non-rendered actual gameplay tho.

  2. I dunno about $120 for 30 days play… there’s no offline mode is there? 😉 Do the 5 days early access mean you get 35 days play? I’m guessing not.

    On a positive note, here’s a link that gets Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag thrown in for free:

  3. Good lord that’s bad!

  4. Thanks JP.

    I have to admit that I have become accustomed to chiclet keys having been on the laptop for over a year now. The small travel and big key surface-area is a big plus over mechanical keys IMO. The mechanical keys on the Orbweaver seem nice though.

  5. 0 experience with em, but I just bought a Cherry Black clone (steelseries 6Gv2) and I know my general typing accuracy has gone up, with a noticeable increase in typing speed too.

    So all I can say, is that mechanical is the way to go. But go to a shop and try them out. They are not for everyone…

  6. I will be up for a game. I dont know how well it will run but it is installing now and hopefully will be fully functional if not I probs upgrade is 2 weeks and will be ready to roll then.

  7. Totally, BL2 is still rockin’! Tiny Tina DLC is a hoot 🙂

    They are doing weapon rebalancing at the moment. One weapon at a time, day by day with upped drops (of that weapon) disguised as a contest: (sadly, only americans can win the money and nvidia loot, but we get the drops!)

    And the halloween headerhunter boss dlc will be out on Tuesday!…

  8. Ha! I will have to get back into BL2 at some stage.

    I will do a review of classes soon but I would say that you want a Sorcerer with their daedric summoning. Having said that Elder Scrolls classes are just a starting point and anyone can pretty much do anything.

  9. um… which of these factions is most like a mechromancer?

  10. Very helpful 🙂

  11. It’s official, Gamearena have closed our TeamSpeak server. I know this because they sent me this helpful please-come-back-again email:

    Hello Tofu,

    Your Game Server Rental subscription for TeamSpeak has ended.

    Thanks for your support of Australia’s premier Game Server Rental service, and we hope to see onboard again in the future!

    Kind regards,
    The Game…

  12. Bizarre!

  13. I’m amused that GameArena (Telstra) are getting out of the voice business!

  14. No biggie. I just kinda look like this now…

  15. I have not gotten wood, but I do have holidays! What is everyone up too?
