Video Games And Headaches

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 23, 2018 by getbent57

Recently got a digital copy of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.  Played it a few times and each time would get a headache.  I do get a lot of headaches at random times so didn’t think much about it.  Decided not play it for a few days and try again to see for sure it was the game.  Then got thinking about other games over the years that caused them.  One I know for sure is the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.  The camera movement was the problem for me in that game.  It would sway when the character ran.  It was the same thing in Gears of War.  Then here was a game on the Dreamcast where the light patterns hurt my heard.  Think this is the same thing happening in Tamriel Unlimited.  Have played many hours in Skyrim with no trouble. Tamriel Unlimited has pretty much the same movement but there are a lot more stuff going on screen.  It would kind of suck if I couldn’t play the game.  On the plus side didn’t pay too much for it.  If I did have it on disc would just give it to a friend.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited

The PlayStation Store (is or was depending when this gets posted) running a mid year sale.  One of the game was The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.  This is an MMO set in the Elders Scrolls world.  When the game was first out, like a lot in this type, had an subscription fee.  Then in 2015 they re-branded the game as Tamriel Unlimited dropping the fees.  All so that year it was released on the PS4 and Xbox One.  Since then have been watching for the game to drop in price.  Have wanted to try but I knew it would be much different then play Skyrim.

Well the sale had a good price on it, $13.50.  So bought a digital copy.   I knew the file size would be huge.  Glad I have and external hard drive. When everything was done downloading and installed it takes up 103 GBs.  Have played about three hours so far.  There is a lot going on.  It kind of feels a bit like Skyrim with all kinds of extra layers and layers of stuff on top.  Think it will take me many more hours to figure everything out.

The Elder Scrolls Online Free Play Weekend

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 18, 2016 by getbent57

The_Elder_Scrolls_Online_Tamriel_Unlimited.jpgEver since I heard about The Elder Scrolls Online back in 2012.  Thought about buying.  But at first there was a monthly fee plus you had to buy the game.  Then in January 2015 they rebranded the game as The Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited.   There was no longer a monthly fee.  Which was great news.  However still didn’t buy the game because wasn’t to sure it  I would like it enough to pay full price.

Well if you are like me.  We are in luck because they are have a free play weekend.  It started Wednesday (November 16) and ends on the 20th.  You get the full game to try.  Minus the DLC.   However it’s a big download, 73GB.  The good thing is if you decided to buy the game you get to keep the character/s you created and anything you bought.   You can read all about it > here.

[Update] Decided not to download it.  The file size is way to big.  Plus I would have to deleted a bunch of stuff I don’t want to get rid of yet.

The_Elder_Scrolls_Online_Tamriel_Unlimited.jpgIf you haven’t heard The Elder Scrolls Online is being rebrand/relaunched.  It will now be called The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.  This is because they are getting rid of subscription fees on PC.  Which will be out on March 17, 2015.  All so because the game is coming to PS4 and Xbox One on June 9, 2015.  There is a new trailer out which you can see > here or below.  The game does look pretty cool.  Will be buying it.  Just not at launch.  That is because Batman: Arkham Knight will be out the week before.  The other is reason is because every time a new game comes out that is online or needs some what to be online never seem to work.  So will be waiting until all the bugs and problems will be worked out.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited

The_Elder_Scrolls_Online_Tamriel_UnlimitedFirst heard about The Elder Scrolls Online back in 2012.  I am a big fan of Skyrim so the idea of playing an online version of that kind of game sounded pretty sweet.  The game was out on PC back in April of 2014.  It was humoured to be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One.  The humoured turned out to be true.  It will be out on June 9, 2015.  It is coming with a new name as well, The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.   This is because there will be no subscription fees.  When it first came out on PC it had month fees.  Now the PC version will have no subscription as well.  How ever you can still pay extra money for their optional membership package.  Am very interested to see how the game will look and play on a PS4.  In the next few months and sure they will be all kinds of video out.

The Elder Scrolls Online Teaser Trailer

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , on May 7, 2012 by getbent57

ElderScrollsOnline So the rumours are true.  There is going to an Elder Scrolls Online game.  The tease trailer (below) was put out today (May 4, 2012).  Much like then Skyrim was first announced, the teaser trailer doesn’t show very much.  From the GameSpot.com article.  The massively multiplayer open world RPG will take place 1,000 years before the story in Skyrim takes place.  They say the game will be out in 2013.  Have tired a few MMO’s over the years.  Could never stick with any of them.  How ever if this one plays like Skryim, I would be all over it.  As long as my computer could run it.  Another think is with this games there are all ways a monthly fee.  Not a fan of that.  Will wait and see that kind of info the put out over the next few months.  E3 is coming up in June may be will we see something here.

Elder Scrolls MMO?

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , on March 17, 2012 by getbent57

Was reading this > article today saying there might be an Elder Scrolls MMOG in the works.   Have heard this rumour lots of times before.  They are saying that it will be unveiled in May they shown off at this years E3.

This might be an online game I might be interested in.  Have tired a few over the years.  Play for a bit but could never stick with them.  It would be sweet if it played something like Skyrim.  But I doubt that.  Just know it will look pretty sweet.  Time will tell if it is just another rumour or not.  If it is true I will be talking about it for sure.

elder-scrolls-5-trailer Forgot to watch Spike TV’s VGA show last night.  So today looked up to see that games they were going to announce.  Most didn’t surprise me except one, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.  This a sequel to one of my all time favourite games, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.  Put well over a 100 hours in that game.  So I am happy they are making a new one.  They say the game will be out November 11, 2011.  Take a look at the trailer.
