Five on Friday: Conan @ SDCC

For today’s “Five on Friday” post, I selected my favourite clips of Conan O’Brien at San Diego Comic-Con and a special clip of him playing World of Warcraft at BlizzCon.

PAX West 2016

Holy shit on toast, Batman…I survived my first convention! Damn, was it crowded – but it was hellaciously fun. Meeting the Bethesda ESO team was a kick in the pants! I got some free game codes to hand out to my niece and nephews; there were some awesome costumes and displays to take pictures of, and I got a few nice T-shirts. One was free and two were not, but the free stuff wasn’t bad at all!

All four days went by very quickly, which means that I had a great time. Time flies when you’re having fun, after all! The crowds bothered me far less than I thought that they would, and I was happy to see hand sanitizer stations everywhere: outside of the restrooms, near the elevators and escalators, and right outside of the “Arena” – the place in the convention center where consoles and PCs were set up for anyone and everyone to jump on and play whichever game they wanted to.

There were four consoles and four PCs set up in the Bethesda room, all loaded up with the ESO North American (NA) client and the Public Test Server (PTS). The newest update at that time (12), which introduced One Tamriel and the dueling system, was a ton of fun to test out while they streamed LIVE ON TWITCH for all four days! I got completely rekt by one of the gaming designers on the live-stream, and my smiling face can also be seen by those who know and love me. It was all too awesome!

Time for me to test out a few new in-game settings and recording settings! My new webcam also arrived and I plan on hooking it up to see how it performs, but only after I get the pictures downloaded from my phone for future posts. I took quite a few so I hope that they turn out!

It’s Friday and I’m in a fantastic mood, so enjoy this bit of random silliness to get your weekend started off right.

Midweek Screen-Shots

Five days from today opens the latest chapter in my computer game of choice, The Elder Scrolls Online. New skill lines, a new crafting ability, and changes to some existing in-game features will also occur.

Here are a few of my most recent screen-shots from gaming fun over the past couple of months. Plenty more will be shared after the next chapter launches!

Wordless Wednesday: Scenic Screen-Shots

I will be periodically live-streaming my gaming sessions Friday and over the weekend as the ESO anniversary event draws to a close. Sorting of screen-shots and adding to my fan fiction is ongoing.

Celebratory Screen-Shots: TESO Anniversary Event! (Re-blogged)

Today marks the 4th anniversary of The Elder Scrolls Online, so I’m re-posting these screen-shots from last year’s event.

New ones will be posted soon!

Eyrie Of An Aries

In light of the special events taking place during the three-year anniversary of the launching of The Elder Scrolls Online (TESO), I figured that I’d share a few screen-shots of the fun and festivities! If this doesn’t entice at least ONE of my readers to join in, then nothing will…but, that won’t stop me from enjoying this multi-layered, engaging, hellaciously fun game. With the upcoming addition of the Morrowind expansion, I expect to be playing for the next five years, at least!

Better-looking than Gordon Ramsay…

Mid-Week Music: Celebration Time! (Re-blogged)

Time for a re-blogged bit of mid-week music. We’re one week away from a full “Blue Moon” and a total lunar eclipse! Quite auspicious.

It’s time for a mid-week party! Why? For the sheer joy of it, of course – what better reason could there be? Enjoy these five celebratory songs, with a smile!

New Year’s Eve: Party Preparations

In-game and in real life (IRL), plans for the evening festivities are in full swing! Enjoy these screen-shots and a bit of music to start the countdown. 11 hours remain in 2017 at the time of this post, in my corner of the world.

Here’s looking forward to the new year, as well as the new title for this blog. Cheers, everyone!

A little self-immolation to stay warm during the cold ride

A blazing orb matches the essence of Sepultur’a Stone-Fire

Admiring the latest addition to the newest abode

Looks magnificent and terrible – an excellent combination

A prayer-scroll graces the observation tower

Paying homage to the mighty “Father of the Orcs”

Relaxing indoors with a drink

Time to cook up the feast – the guild-members will be hungry

For the strange ones called “vee-gins,” a nutritious bland paste will be served

Awaiting the arrival of honoured guests – let the drunken debauchery begin!

Three More Days

I’m counting down to New Year’s Eve! I’ve always loved the parties, festivities and socializing around this time of year. Staying healthy in the midst of flu season can be tedious, but it is doable! Also, one must expose themselves to the occasional virus now and then, if only to remind the body of how to fight them off.

Almost time to head to the store and get some last-minute items for the celebratory meal! Our version of Oysters Rockefeller is mouth-watering and noteworthy, and only a few select family members and friends are allowed to sample. Much like the Little Red Hen, we are more than generous with those who lend willing and ready helping hands during times of need. Those times are few and far between, but we duly note those who are there during those times.

This song is for those who know what friendship really is! You know who you are, new friends and old. Thank you.

New Life Festival Screen-Shots: 1st Post 2017! (Re-blogged)

This in-game festival has returned, with new items and rewards to earn. I’ll take some screen-shots and post them when the event is over. Here’s a re-blog of images taken from last year.

Eyrie Of An Aries

Well, here we are…1 January of 2017! I say “1st Post 2017,” because it is my first original post typed with my own fingers, not a re-blog of someone else’s post. I’m going to be doing some gaming and live-streaming the footage if the program decides to cooperate. In the meantime, please enjoy these in-game screen-shots that I took while taking part in the New Life Festival. I’m enjoying the fun, seasonal things that are being added to the game – they’re very entertaining. I’m also looking forward to checking out the player housing on the Public Test Server in a week or so! I usually don’t do ‘spoilers,’ but I really want to see what’s in store.

Talk at you all later!

Sepultura’s Screen-Shots: Sundas, 17th Hearthfire (Re-blogged)

My shopping is done so it is time for some gaming. Enjoy this re-blog of some screen-shots, and check out my Twitch channel to watch some of the in-game action – if the higher-than-normal weekend population doesn’t cause major crashes, that is!
