Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Welp, I had a lot of fun last beta, but had even more fun this beta. The game is so much damn fun. I logged in tonight and saw a few announcements for "end of beta dance parties" and took a few pictures. The first dance party was at the Daggerfall Market Square and was fairly disorganized, it was advertised as "Clothes strictly forbidden" ...well then:
I lagged out shortly after that and logged back in, but in another phase. That's okay, quickly I saw messages talking about a boat dance party!
They even had a more organized band.
Not everyone took off their armor, in fact, this guy just sort of showed up. Man do I want his armor.
And just before the servers shut down everyone jumped into the water.
Towards the end of it there were even system messages telling everyone to keep on dancing. I'll definitely miss beta events, haha.
Just meh. Went back to Wildstar for the weekend, combat didn't do it for me and Elder Scrolls lore has always struck me as the blandest of high fantasy....
Might be a little more intrigued once I make it to areas that open up into the wilderness more - been running around Daggerfall like a courier for what feels like days.
Perfect example as to how some games are for some people and aren't for others. I used to be super hyped for Wildstar and not at all for ESO. After trying Wildstar and feeling like I could literally be doing anything else and having some fun at least and ESO where I don't actually want to do anything else, my opinion has flipped completely: I'm super excited for ESO and Wildstar I'm probably going to completely pass on.
ESO won't be for everyone but so far it's definitely for me. The more I play the more the game the more I feel like this, as well.
Are you me?
Is it weird that you're not the first person in this very thread to ask this?
So I like that even though I've basically played the game nonstop last beta weekend and now pretty much so far this weekend, I'm still finding new things where I'm like "damn, that's cool." and want to keep playing. I've now done almost everything on my Templar I can, too.
Is it bad that I feel like I've got my money's worth already and the game isn't even released yet?
