End Game.

Hey Dear Readers,

Question for you all. Specifically to MMO’s does end game matter to you?

As i had said in my prior post i’ve been playing a TON of ESO, Elder Scrolls Online. Now my dear Grey Claws is not even remotely in the thousands for his champion points level. As of last night he was i think 616.

My friends and i were trying to run Fang Lair and i was not putting out enough damange for my class. So after we gave up on the run. One of my guildmates was helping me understand things specific to end game and gear and abilities.

Now that guildmate was correct on many points. However when he was explaining it i felt extremely out of my depth and almost as if i were in a college lecture and it was coming at me way to fast and was extremely overwhelming.

So, this got me thinking. Does it matter? Sure some of this thought came from a bitter pill i had to swallow on not being good enough team wise, and yes that needed to change if i wanted to run harder vet content.

However, if i was just solo playing PVE cotent which there is a ton of i was melting enemies left and right. So i was frusterated to say the least. 

During that long talk with my guildmate. I kept thinking “I just want to play MY game and not worry about how much i do damage wise. I just want to have fun”. I realized though for me its about balance. After i slept on the issue and came back to it with a clearer head and started to rework Grey Claws I did see a change; which even helped in the in PVE content.

Now, truth be told i have not run my new build in a vet dungeon but i am feeling good and most importantly the changes i made were right for me and how i play.

What do you all think of end game content? Is it worth it. Should at that point just be a numbers game or what. Do games need to rework it or how should it be handled. Let me know in the comments.

My Time in Elden Ring

Hey Dear Reader and Friends,

Let me start by saying I am NOT a souls player. I tried darksouls 3 and my god, it was a bloodbath. I am not afraid of a good fight but this was something totally different and your dear Otome was not a fan. Now to bring us to Elden Ring. Came in on the 25th the day it launched and wow I actually got it. Now I am by no means the best and youtube is a welcome friend along with my other gaming pals but Elden Ring at least almost 2 weeks in to me has a really nice mix and balance of challenge and reward. Is it perfect, no, but what game is. The multiplayer in my opinion needs a rework but that may be on me. The idea of summoning your friend only to lose them again at the end of a dungeon or to restrict the amount of flasks you can bring with you I get it ups the challenge. However, maybe it ups it to much?

What do you all think of the game.

Has anyone seen how good gaming food look?

Hello Awesome Readers,

So maybe this is because i just got done making my first ever crockpot meal while having Julie and Julia playing in the background but has anyone noticed how awesome meals in games look?

Like regardless of if it is Zelda Breath of the Wild or Pokemon Sword and Shield. They all looked good. This also may help explain why i have a stomach and not the six pack abs i dream of every night haha.

I don’t know how many of you would do this and i still have a ways to go on the curry dex but there were times i would just play pokemon to figure out the newest combination or if i could get gold again.

Same with playing BOTW i would run around the land and collect in ingredients to throw in the pot to see what affect it may have.

There is something so universal and so amazing about food being able to bring people together isn’t there. Haha.

Upgrading to the XBOX Series S

Hey Dear Readers,

Its been a few weeks since my last update and that is due to my Xbox 1 I gave to my folks so they could stream their favorite shows. My mother is in heaven let me tell. I have since upgraded to the series S all digital edition. So far I am loving it. However I’ll admit I am not blown away.

I am saying this because, for me it is a lot like having normal radio vs having Satellite radio. Sure it is nice to have the extra channels but if you don’t have it you aren’t missing much and you carry on with your rocking local channels. My S is great and I am thrilled to have updated but it is not Wowing me the way I expected it would as of yet. Maybe once more titles come out or I upgrade my tv I will then see a difference. Here is hoping at least haha.

How is everyone else doing? Did we enjoy our thanksgiving.

The Amazing Open World of Red Dead Online.

So i am a bit behind on Rockstars game Red Dead Redemption 2 and its tie in game Red Dead Online. I will admit i have not given the main story much of a look due to i have been enjoying the online game far to much to switch over.

In Red Dead Online you make your Avatar that can be male or female. For me i actually made and rock a female character in this game. The male designs in this game i personally not a fan of and they just seem off. However whatever you rock however you rock it welcome to 1899!

An 1899 where you can basically do what you want while you get revenge on those who wronged you. No spoilers for the story of course but WOW. So good.

One thing that does annoy me is that in order to unlock the jobs of trader or, collector etc. You need to use gold aka premium currency. You can buy the premium currency or earn it in game which if you max out how much you can make shouldn’t take you terribly long to do.

All and all my time in game continues to be a blast and enjoying my time alone and with friends. When we are not trying to lasso ourselves up we primarly are working on the bounty hunter role. We’ll eventually do the other roles well but we also just enjoy the day over all running around doing this or that.

This is a game i know everyone has played both in single player and also in online but it truly is a great fun game.
