Lord of the Rings Online

Elder Scrolls Online is a given.

Star Wars Galaxies Emu will stay on my laptop where it’s safe.

 

Porcine Piggybank

I haven’t been playing ESO much, so missed out on the new Bristleneck War Boar, which looks very adorable.  MassivelyOp has an article on the ire raised by the fact that this porky praline adds FIVE inventory slots for all your characters.

The Elder Scrolls Online introduces new cash shop pet that increases your inventory and raises some eyebrows

If it were ten, it would be more appealing and perhaps more controversial.   I think it’s fine in any case.  I wouldn’t get him for his five slots.  I save all my money for houses in the game. The best thing is commenter Schlag Sweetleaf, who comes up with brilliant little illustrations for any topic you can think of, created this awesome picture:

 

IGN’s Best Solo Boardgames

Looking through my notes, I liked an article at IGN called The Best Solo Board Games.  To me, board games are meant to be played face to face with your opponents so you can see what they’re up to.  So much is given away.

On the other hand, many of these really are multi-player, and if you can play through on your own easily enough, you can explain the new game to the group a bit better.  Most of the games sound great!

The Level Squash

Eurogamer talked with Blizzard about the upcoming “level squash” when Shadowlands is released.   It does not quite sound like a parsed out plan yet.  It is early days, but read through and see if you can imagine how it will work and if it can be done as currently envisioned.

Darkmoon Arcade

I’m so excited for the Arcade being added to Darkmoon Faire.

https://www.icy-veins.com/forums/topic/46782-play-darkmoon-arcade-games-in-patch-83/

The mini-games World Quests get better all the time, and I will be spending a lot of time in the Faire once these are out.   I go where ever the Match game is available, and have come to find the Rune Matching game relaxing.   I don’t know the Minesweeper game Hexsweeper is based on, but I’m willing to be blown up a few times giving it a try.   We see they slipped in the Leylines game, but maybe I’ll get better at the concept once I see it in it’s simplest solving stages, then move up to the complex puzzles.   One token and you can play all day!

 

BFA

Only Need Tortollan Seekers and Rustbolt Resistance at Revered.  Doing very well plinking along in World Quests.

Classic

Paladin is up this week as the main character.  I’m eager to get her to Duskwood.  Getting all the lowbies to 10 or 20 depending on where they’re at.  Uneventful!   I’m finding it hard to get screenshots for my IntPiPoMo.   Hopefully spending a little time in some of the other games listed will produce some useful screenshots.

 

One screenshot this time, really digging! Its a tiny house up in the hills by Northshire I’m not sure is still in the game with and Alchemy and Herbalism Trainer inside.

Up to five screenshots for IntPiPoMo.   I can do it!
