I think i got butt raped in hearthstone today

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don’t think i have ever lost this badly before in hearthstone. I did not realize the guy had played both the legendary monster that spawn that 11/11 mob. He also added deathwrattle on the mob a few time and i ended up with 5 of the 11/11 creatures. He could of spawn the dude a 6th time to….

Legendary mage Secrets Midrange Naxx Deck Jan 2015

 

 

So I played about 60 games with this deck in January, about 1/2 way through i decided to start recording what level i was at. Overall the deck does pretty well but  seem to average around 14.4 (14 with 2 stars). What i found with the deck is that it is pretty hit and miss. I think the spell + secrets end up making it a very spell heavy deck.

I plan to make my own version of this deck that is a little less reliant on spell.

Hearthstone Jan 2015 Mage Secret deck

So i’ve been playing a lot of Hearthstone recently and have been starting to build some decks. For my base desk i used Legendary mage Secrets Midrange Naxx Desk on Icy-veins.com but with some changes because i didn’t have all the cards listed..

For the Mage card’s i pretty much am using what is listed there

  • 2 Mama Wyrm
  • 2 Frostbolt
  • 1 Counterspell
  • 2 Duplicate
  • 2 Mirror Enity
  • 2 Kirin Tor Mage
  • 2 Fireball
  • 1 polymorph
  • 2 Water Elemental
  • 1 Flamestrike
  • 1 Ethereal Arcanist

For the Non mage cards i’m a little different but not to much

  • 2 Under taker
  • 2 Loot Horder
  • 2 Mad Scientist
  • 1 Baron Rivendare
  • 1 Faceless Manipulator
  • 1 Loatheb
  • 2 Sludge Belcher
  • 1 Ragnaros The Firelord

The cards in bold are the one that are different for me.  I didn’t have Sylvanas Winderunner So i replaced it with a Faceless Manipulator. Faceless Manipulator works pretty well in this set. When people play A Legendary i’ll normally copy it. Baron Rivendare was added as well for one of the Harvest Golems. Since 6 of the cards already had deathrattles and Baron Rivendare double the deathrattles i went that way. Lastly i added one Ethereal Arcanist. The main reason for this change is that 1/6 of all the cards in the deck are secretes so i have a pretty good change of getting the 2/2 every turn

Let’s Play ESO: Part 1 Khajiit Assassin takes the field

So my first Let Play, and i really have no idea what i’m doing, so please let me know if there something i’m doing wrong. First i got a brand new mic, (Yeti Blue), which so far has been pretty epic. The first time i used it was to talk with some friends on Skype about a vacation i’m taking soon and they could totally hear a much clear version of me. What also nice about the mic, there no driver to install for it, just plugin it in and your done.

So For this Let Play I’ve decided to play as a Nightlyblade, it most of the Elder Scrolls game i’ve played (Skyrim, Oblivion), i have played as thief. So i decided to give that a shot. I went with a Khajiit because they get 2 rather bonus that work with the character i want to make. 1 that make stealth harder to break though, the other than increase there crit chance of melee weapons.

Starting My Let’s Play

So In the Coming days i plan to take a Stab at the Let’s Play thing. I have decided i’m going to do a Let Play on the Elder Scrolls Online. It is currently the MMO that i play a lot.

Before i start i’m looking at some of the thing i need for a Let Play. I recently bought a Blue Yeti Microphone as i heard it was decent with out being 100+, and i should be getting that on Wednesday.

For Video Recording i’m thinking about using Open Broadcast Software. I’ve used this a few time when i was trying to live stream some of my gaming. (I sadly have a pretty bad internet connection (6down, 1 up) and so with only 1 up i can’t really stream that well.

Other than that i’m hoping to get a short recording done on Thursday, assuming i have everything set up.

181 one days later..

I haven’t blogged in a while, well 181 days to be exact, just over ½ a year. A lot can happen in ½ a year.

Over the last few year I’ve noticed I stopped going to blog for information on video games, and I went move and move to Let’s Play, and Twitch. I think Blogs still have a place in the world of video games, there are some very specific thing that work very well in blog that you can’t really do in video, but I think video has replaced blogs as the main source people go to.

On top of that I really haven’t been in to any video games lately to blog. Yes I’ve been playing a lot of The Elder Scrolls online, but that pretty much it. Nothing really to blog about.

So where do I go from here?

For a while I was thinking about getting rid of the blog, I’ve been blogging about video games for over 8 years now. After thinking long and hard on this, I’ve decided to keep this blog.

I’ve decided I want to try a Let’s Play on ESO that I will post the video here and a little bit of information on them. I’ve also decided I’ve wanted to teach my self how to do some Android programing as well and I can use my blog for that as well. So the blog is here to say, and so will have some real content again.

And yes I managed to mess up my top manage again!

Day 1 of Everquest Next Landmark

Everquest Next Landmark is an alpha. As a software engineer i know what an alpha is so i know what i am getting my self in to. I’m afraid for SOE that a lot of the people who paid to get in to Alpha are not sure what they are getting in to and that might cause some Negative publicity from people who were expecting something closer to a beta or an almost finished polished game.

So i’m playing as Ogrebears on the Courage, and i managed to get plot early in the alpha on the edge of a tier 2 island (or what ever SOE is calling them). I Forget what it is called, and the server appear to have just gotten locked as i was going to get check.

Overall i think this game has a lot of potential, having a world were you can build your own peace of it is fun and lets players be very creative… But i worry about what happens after playing have created there stuff, what do they do then. Way way way back in the data there was (and still is) a place called Alpha World. Alpha world was developed over 18 years ago, it allowed anyone to claim a space and start building, and you could build what ever you wanted. It was big for a while (in the late 90’s) but that died down.

 

Fast forward a few years and Second life came around, and again a lot of people joined second life. Second life had most of the thing that Alpha world had but you could create your own items and sell them. This let creator receive money.

I feel Everquest Next Landmark take the best from Alpha World and Seconds Life and mixes it with minecraft type of elements. IF SOE is able to add some MMO elements that keep people want to say in the world and build more, then i think the game has a lot of potential. IF not it still ends up being a pretty good long alpha/beta test for the thing that they plan to us in Everquest Next which is a smart move.

 

Q1 2014, Games i’m looking forward to

Feb 25 2014 — Thief (PS4/XBOX one)–

So this game so far seem pretty interesting. From what i’ve seen from it, it seem similar to dishonor and Assassins Creed. If it gets good rating and i’ve bought a next gen console by them i will probably get the game.

Q1 2014 — The Repopulation
So this sound like an interesting MMO, i haven’t really heard much about it until now. I’ll have to look in to this game and learn more about it so i’m going to keep in on my rader for now.

Q1 2014 — Age of Wonder III
I’ve never played any of the other age of wonder lands. From the different trailers i’ve seen it looks interesting. I am pretty sure i’m going to end up buying this game when it comes out.

Q1 2014 — Banish. Game of the year!!! So this single guy decided to make a game, and make probably one of the best city building strategy games i’ve seen in a while. Hopefully it will be out this year, but well worth the wait.

I have a pair of Google glasses, now what?

So i won’t go in to much detail, but last week i received my code to buy a part of Google glasses from google, and i went a head and spent the $1500 it cost to buy them.

I’m excepted to get them on Monday morning, as a tech guy and a programer i’m totally stoked. I’ll blog more about them when i got them up and running.

First 20 level in EQ2 2013

Aged is probably the best way to describe Everquest 2. I some how remember the game as having these amazing graphics. I look at the game today and that not what i see.

The image below show it off very well. The building below look almost like they don’t below with the world. The world seem to be lower quality than that items in the world, and that can be off putting.

EQ2_000000

 

Ok so restarting in Everquest 2, as i said i started in Darklight Woods over all the zone was ok. I would of love more of a story around the zone, yes there is a story but i couldn’t really get behind it.

Something i like since i’ve been gone. AA by default will get spent automatically on pve solo list that has been created. I like this because i don’t really want to have to look each level where to spend my AA point. Down the road i might, but right now having it done automatically make life easier for a new players.

So far i’m having fun, Looking at the eq2.wikia zone by level guide the next place to go is either Nektulos Forest, Thundering Steppes, or Butcherblock mountains.  Since Butcherblock is the only zone that wasn’t launched with the game i’m going to head there.
