Returning to a Galaxy Far Far Away

Thats right ladies and gents, I have returned to the land of lightsabers, bantha’s, and Womp Rats oh my! I’ve been giving gaming a lot of thought lately and recently my gaming has been all over the place. Generally I chase games that others are playing as I like to play games with friends and socialize a bit. While I like playing with friends, sometimes schedules do not mesh or the type of game does not work. I wanted to take it back to a place where I enjoyed gaming, and while I will always default to play games with my friend when available, on the off days where it does not happen, I have the games that started my gaming passions.

Korriban Sith Training

With that I started up my t-16 Skyhopper (only real fans will get that one), and downloaded Star Wars: The Old Republic back onto my computer. There are other games that I will play again, and some new ones you might see, but those are for another day. In starting this game again, I wanted to start fresh instead of jumping back into one of my max level toons. When I first played this game I played as a Sith Inquisitor, later choosing the Assassin sub class. I started playing again roughly a week ago and have enjoyed the starting quests, and then moved on to Dromund Kaas. At this point I have been knocking out quests as they come along but also have been stopping the traditional grind to decorate my stronghold, as well as partake in epic quests.

Throughout my game play I will record and post stronghold walk throughs, armor collections, and group play as it comes along. So stand by and enjoy as I traverse the galaxy causing havoc and discontent!

Wizards, Rangers, and Witches, Oh My!

Thats right people. I have gotten the seven day free trial of BDO or Black Desert Online. As a few friends of mine (Jitterycricket & Japher) are playing this game, I thought it would be fun to check it out and join them for some adventures. While this video has little actual gameplay, I think it highlights just how many options there are to customize your character, and how overall beautiful this game is.

My first impression was WOW, there are so many options and ways to design your character. My second impression was, why cant I change the gender of the classes. While I am all for playing whatever gender suits you, I really wanted to play a male Dark Knight. Now maybe you can, and I just did not figure out how to change the gender, but oh well. I also like to play ranged classes so choosing a Wizard was not that hard of the choice.

So enjoy the short video and check back for more wizarding adventures!

Star Wars: The Old Republic – Darth Killer

As the title suggests, I have bee busy. Since my last adventure in the game I have since defeated all the challenges that the planet Dromund Kaas could muster. I became a esteemed member of the Order of Revan/Revanites, strolled through the Dark Temple in search of Tulak Hords relics, and ended up meeting the force apparition of Lord Kallig, not only my Sith Lord Ancestor, but also Tulak Hords greatest rivals! My journey on Dromund Kass ended pretty well as I ended up at level 24 I believe, was sent on an assassination mission to kill Darth Skotia, earned my ship, and traveled off world towards Balmorra to continue my story. And as the title of this update suggests, I can not be called the darth killer, lol.

PS. I also purchased my Dromund Kass stronghold, but more on that in a separate update! Enjoy the following video and screenshots. Dont forget to check back for more SWTOR goodness!

Star Wars: The Old Republic. (Darkside)

The other day I got the bug to play this game again. It seems that no matter what new games are out, or what game I have currently suck endless amounts of time into, I am always drawn back to this game. Is it my deep love for the world of Star Wars, or does this game just perform that well? Either way, I enjoy it and plan to play the crap out of it. When I first started playing this game on a different server in a galaxy far away, I started as a Sith, and chose the Inquisitor class. I felt it fitting that starting out as a new character I revisit that class and see where it takes me.

sith2As I already have a max level Smuggler Gunslinger and Trooper Vanguard, the Darkside choice was a refreshing return to the game. I have always been drawn to the Inqusitor class as I am a huge fan of the Imperial known as Inquisitor Antinnis Tremayne in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. For those that do not know the Expanded Universe or are not huge Star Wars fans, the Inquisitor Tremayne in the EU was a past Jedi Apprentice who was captured during the time of the Clone Wars. Not falling victim to Order 66, Tremayne was taken to a desolate planet known as Biss, where he and other imprissoned Jedi and Apprentices were reprogramed per say to join the Empire. Tremayne was eventually taken on as a secret apprentice by non other Darth Vader. Tremayne became one of the founding members of the Imperial Intelligence Division known as the Inquisitors.

sith3For this character we of course started on the planet Koriban at the Sith Academy with that bastard Harkun breathing down our necks. I traversed the catacombs and tombs of past Sith Lords like Tulak Horde, Naga Sadow, and others, all to pass my Sith Apprentice trials. Which I did, and surprise surprise, I was picked up by Lord Zash after I recovered ancient Sith scrolls and freeing the imprisoned Dashade Khem Val. As I reached the appropriate level I chose the Madness line of the Inquisitor class and ended the night at level 17 and stepping foot on the planet Dromund Kass. My last interaction in the game was being confronted by the Sith Lord Darth Skotia. Stay tuned for more! Until then check out some of my screenshots.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Last night started a new adventure in Star Wars: The Old Republic. I have decided to start over with a new character on a new server. For this character I went with the (Race), and Scoundrel class. For server, I chose Ebon Hawk as it is a PVE server. I have decided for this character I want to go with the healer route, so I have decided Sawbones for my advanced class. When choosing my profession I chose armstech, with slicing and scavenging as my gathering skills.

My previous characters include a Gunslinger, Imperial Agent, and Sith Inquisitor, so this class is a bit different, but also fun at the same time. So far I have not gotten into a situation or group dynamic where I am the healer or support, so most of my playing has been running and gunning through content so far. At current time, my character is at level 23 and is currently on the Republic Fleet getting ready to travel to Coruscant. More adventures and videos to come!
