Welcome to the ALL NEW Beyond Bossfights show! In this episode, Braxwolf and new co-host DJPimpdaddy talk about DJ’s killer watch, Ready Player One, and what we’re looking forward to in the coming month.
If you follow me on Twitter, you know that there’s one MMO that I’ve been playing on and off (mostly off) over the last four years since the game was in beta: the Elder Scrolls Online (ESO). In the past, since my play was so erratic, it was difficult for me to get to a point where I felt sufficiently versed to craft a worthwhile blog post. Well, I’ve been playing (and enjoying) ESO for about three months now. Including the 6 month stint I played a little over a year ago, I now feel like I can speak somewhat intelligently about the game. It’s been a very long time since I documented my initial impressions on Contains Moderate Peril.
As LOTRO celebrates its 10th anniversary, many have decided to share their personal experiences with the game. It’s funny how difficult it can be to summarize the complex relationship you share with your favorite games. As I tried to wrap words around the three (or thereabouts) years that I actively played LOTRO, It became apparent that I would have to organize it into several different sections to adequately segment the different phases I experienced for the purposes of concise communication.
Note: This post was originally written for and published by Contains Moderate Peril in 2014. as it no longer exists on that site, and because I’ve recently started playing ESO again, I thought it would be fun to resurrect the series on my own blog. Enjoy!
A question was directed to me on Twitter the other day: “How would you compare ESO to LOTRO?”. I muddled through a response as well as I could, but given the Twitter character limitation and complexity of the topic, I decided to also dedicate an entire post series of posts to it. This specific article will explore the graphics and questing aspects of both games.
