Shameless Gaming Promotion! ***UPDATED*** (Re-blogged)

Another free-play weekend is in full swing, so my regular readers know what I’m going to be doing! Feel free to check out my Twitch channel to watch the action and merry mayhem.

Random Ramblings; Myriad Musings

All righty, fellow freaks and geeks, nerds and ‘Blerds,’ Dudes and Dudettes, Cosplayers and ERPers…are ya doing anything this weekend? Stuck inside because of the weather or some seasonal bug going around the office or school? Are you bored shitless with your current game (or waiting to buy a new one?), movie, or other guilty pleasure and just looking for something different, and perhaps fun? Well, check this out: The good people at Zenimax Online® Studios (ZOS), in their infinite wisdom, are opening up the virtual world of The Elder Scrolls® Online to all – whether you’re a complete and total newb, or a long-timer who just let your account lapse, come join in on the fun and see what’s what!

As a disclaimer, I get no monetary compensation for this shameless advertising and promotion of this game…I’m simply hoping to add to my roster of friends and guild…

Tuesday Afternoon…19 April 2016

The sun is out and it’s beautiful here! Temperature records have been smashed during the past couple of days; the day before yesterday, it was warmer in Seattle than it was in Honolulu – absolutely perfect!

Not much to say today, so I’ll just dive into the tiny tidbits of info I felt like sharing, LOL! First off, if any of my fellow nerds, “Blerds,” and other gaming geeks are in and around the Boston area, head on over to Pax East 2016 and see if you can attend a discussion with the developers and media managers of the MMORPG that I play, The Elder Scrolls Online! Quiz them on their sketchy Terms & Conditions, ask why racist and other exclusionary guilds are favoured, and ask why there is such an insistence on players using voice-only add-ons such as TeamSpeak, GameVox, Mumble, and others – it seems quite unfair to me that deaf gamers are shut out in PvP and other areas! I’m looking to see if they will be in my neck of the woods any time this year…I would sure love to ask them those questions, and more. My questions get evaded, avoided, and flat-out ignored in their forums and on their Live Twitch-chat feeds, so I figure that asking in person is the only way to go! For example, the picture below shows one of the many male gamers who use a female avatar for the sole purpose of harassing real female gamers such as myself. This asshat’s name is Sypher, LOL – and he has a major fan base of total fan-boyz!
XD

Let’s see, what else…oh, yes – yesterday, 18 April, was the birthday of my favourite, lanky, red-haired comedian, Conan O’Brien! He is taking the week off from his show, understandably, so I figured that I’d post a few of his best (in my opinion) comedy clips – including the entire episode of his most recent trip to South Korea! He has also gone to Finland, Ireland, and Armenia, and entertained the troops overseas. His brand of self-deprecating humour has always cracked me up – so I hope that you enjoy these selections!

As a disclaimer, I get no monetary compensation for this shameless advertising and promotion of this game…I’m simply hoping to add to my roster of friends and guild members in-game, and it won’t cost you a cent! If any of you do happen to get in on this sweet deal, feel free to leave your character name in the comments section here, or in the ‘Open Thread’ when the comments section in this thread times out…and let me know which alliance your toon is in! I play on the North American (NA) server, so…hope to see you there!

Just in case you haven’t seen it in any of my previous posts, here is the best trailer for the game – and yes, the graphics ARE that awesome!

***UPDATED Thursday, 10 December***

The Elder Scrolls® Online weekend promotion is in full swing and going well, so far! I currently have 20 guild-members and 100 people on my “friends” list, and will add more over the next few days if I’m able to! I was hoping to have my computer upgraded by now, so as to enter the PvP area with no latency or graphics issues, but the parts I’m waiting for haven’t arrived at the computer store yet. Patience is a virtue in the month of December, and I think that I need to slow down a bit and try to socialize with my new on-line and in-game acquaintances, so I’m doing my best at that. I’m looking forward to player housing, steam-punk costumes, and new pets to show off!

If any of you are participating, I play the PC version of the game – which allows me to play and communicate with Mac users as well. If you play a console version, though, we will never meet…consoles and computers are on completely different platforms, unfortunately! I play on the North American (NA) server and am on Pacific Standard Time (-8 GMT), so I hope to see at least ONE of you there, LOL

Feel free to let me know your in-game name – just leave it in the comments section – and if you’re with the pact, the covenant, or the dominion. If you’d like, I will only note it for myself and delete the comment without publishing it, if you’d prefer some privacy. Either way, I’ll be sure to seek you out…so, I hope to see you there!

🙂
