@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

Welp, figured a little threadcromancy was in order. My cut of ESO is downloaded, installed, patched, and my seemingly still existing beta account was linked to my steam account. I am now ready to actually play!

 

But not now, I've got work to do and desperately need to take a bike ride... I will however, admit that no longer locking the race to the prevailing government was a nice touch. Completely broken in terms of lore, but a nice touch.

There is a reason I don't often play MMO's. I can't get left alone for an hour at a stretch... ever. I had sat down to at least make my character, and was trying to find where on the UI you could get background information on the current factions, hadn't even been at it 2 minutes... "Hey chriss! I need some help!" Drain the spaghetti sauce, dig a hugging hole in the earth... Chores as varied as they are quickly handed out.

 

Finally got some peace and quiet, and hit up ESO wiki to find out the historical information of the factions. I think I will play ebonheart pact... They seem the least, hmmm, morally objectionable.

Catching up on discussions here...

 

I've tried to play Daggerfall multiple times, and while I can get past the dated UI and controls I just can't get over the same-y-ness of the world and characters.

 

I have ESO on both PC and console, but still haven't made it very far past the tutorials. Partly because it's very easy for "live service" games to get their hooks into my completionism-obsessed brain, and I'm already juggling too many as it is to pick up another.

 

How so? TES has been doing the sandbox fantasy experience for 20 years. Breath of the Wild is basically Nintendo's take on a TES game.

Majora's Mask has more of what I want out of a TES game than Breath of the Wild.

The big wilderness is fun, but in TES games I stay in towns as much as I can, and no town in BotW holds a blue candle to Clock Town.

 

Edit:

My ideal TES sequel would probably have an overall smaller map than the last few, but intensely detailed NPC communities and lived-in feeling towns.

Also, more verbs to interact with said NPCs than just theft, murder, and exposition.(and also not be set in Oblivion-style Cyrodiil, Skyrim, or High Rock.)

I haven't picked up Breath of the Wild as of yet. But I have enjoyed Oblivion and Skyrim and have ESO on the Xbox One. Now that the morrowind DLC is out I have really been getting into finally playing it again despite creating my first character over 2 years ago. 

 

Biggest complaint is the need to have people assist you for solo areas at time and group dungeons that have queues that never seem to work... maybe thats just me.

 

Out of boredom I created a guild today so been messing with some of that and working on exploring each area as much as I can solo anyhow

Welp, created my argonian templar (I almost always play argonian. Cause, for some reason, I never get tired of being told I'm not from there.). figured a tank was a good place to start anyway. I'm liking what I'm seeing, and how... streamlined, I guess is the word I want, it seems to be over the beta so long ago.

 

So how do I go about accessing the everything other than the morrowind stuff anyway? I'm certainly not complaining since my first experience with TES was morrowind, but I want to see the rest of the world too.

Well For some of it you have to first complete the Alliance questline in order to go to the other alliance areas, unless you have friends that play in other alliances then you can teleport to them and start working in the areas they are in.  For most of the DLC you have to buy it or be a ESO plus member. Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood can be done from any alliance. I believe once you purchase each DLC there will be a letter in your mailbox that you have to accept to start the quest

Not a problem.. Despite originally starting back when it first came out I gave up after a couple months and only start up playing again this month so I am still new to a lot of the mechanics of this game... Plus I am hesitant to grouping  with random people so I have done almost all solo so far

I know nothing about a new official DLC (After all this time that's doubtful, especially with mod support to consoles), but speaking of the Reach while everyone in the Skyrim PC land is checking out Beyond Skyrim: Bruma mod (Which serves as a tease to the expansive Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodill mod), I've been poking around in a little mod I found on the Nexus called Beyond Reach, which takes you deeper into the Reach on the High Rock side of the border.

 

Check out the mod author's trailer:

 

 

It's still a work in progress. By the author's estimation, 80% of the mod is in a finished state and playtesters are hashing out the issues with quests to polish it all off. Going by the trailer, the mod's got serious chops to be up there with the greats and my time in the mod confirms that. You can leave the Reach and return to Skyrim at any point, which is different from most quest mods and the landmass is respectable (equivalent to the size of three Holds in base Skyrim). I only dipped my toe into the starting area - a unique town called Divide, which is built on the crumbling foundations of a vast bridge that no longer serves a purpose because enough dirt and soil has built up around the bridge that it's wholly unnecessary....but still a unique feature.

 

But most impressively, is the church built atop one of the support arches.

 

YnHzfqI.jpg

 

From the back:

 

uvMaTWR.jpg

 

And from the inside:

 

x3sdLkn.jpg

 

The landscape is pretty dang unique too. Just beyond the Divide you'll come to the sundered town of Sabbat, which was victim to foul sorcery you'll uncover on your own. There's also a swampish landscape filled with ruins, giving this land a real sense of history.

 

Sdz07WU.jpg

 

Sorry for all the night shots, only stayed a in-game day. Just to take a peek at what the mod offered mostly, because it's definitely not expecting you to rush right into it straight out of Helgen (Though you can). And while the Divide is interesting, you can tell some elements are unfinished. The alchemy shop in the Divide is permanently locked up tight and though it has a full smithy, no blacksmith in sight. There is a general goods store though, and the town does boast an Inn but it's not obvious or easy to find (It's not actually on the bridge portion and back a ways when you first encounter the Divide).

 

But hey, new armor, new voices (All very well done), and new music.

 

eojUD7p.jpg

 

Oh, and did I mention mod-specific loading screens?

 

xeVelgh.jpg

 

Worth your time to look at, I feel.

Alright, some threadcromancy here. I'm finally sharing my opinions of ESO.

 

I like it! It plays like... well MMO skyrim. I've got no complaints. I've put something like a thousand hours in skyrim spread over console and PC, and I am thoroughly enjoying the enlarged world space to play in. The character skill system is simple enough, and I am slowly converting my dragonknight's skills off magic to stamina abilities as I've not buffed my magic in any way.

 

I also finally made it away from vvardenfell and those idiot dunmers living under Bau durr. I get it, you do what the living god says: I'm still not gonna live under a rock stopped in time. I was surprised at how faithfully they reproduced the cities in morrowind though. I was walking through memory when I first made it to balmora. And The stop in seyda neen was just a nice touch. Even starting the core story line (you know... the one where you die.) in coldharbour (and my given alliance.) and bleakrock. I liked bleakrock, it was... well. Not a nice place, but the people were decent and didn't deserve what happened. Why are we at war anyway?

 

Long story short. I'm liking what I'm seeing and doing so far. I'm even considering making another character just to explore the different classes and play styles.
