Black Desert Online - Short Witch Video
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 March 2016, 9:37 am
A few minutes of video from Black Desert Online. I was completing a quest and doing some free roaming combat the other night. There are gorgeous locations off the questing trail. I enjoy exploring the locations around the quest hubs. When a game adds life into those in between pockets, it makes the game feel more like a virtual world. Every time I've peaked behind the curtain so far, there's been something interesting to see or fight. Smile


Black Desert Online: Oh No He Didn't!!!
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 March 2016, 12:40 pm
All I've done so far in Black Desert Online is quest and explore. I'm playing very short sessions during the week due to other obligations. So far it's proven to be a nice way to unwind after dinner before I get back to working on other projects.


An Evening Chillin' in Black Desert Online
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 March 2016, 8:33 pm
This evening I spent an hour questing and exploring in BDO. It was way more relaxing than I imagined it would be. It took me right back to casual time spent farming and transporting trade packs in ArcheAge even thought that's not at all what I was doing. I suppose it's the similar art style, lovely scenery and how active the routes through the questing areas are with players and NPCs milling around. I know that enjoying the super casual me thing I do, when I'm not overly fond of the questing system in a MMO doesn't last every long but it doesn't hurt to give it a try. I need to work out how to get started with housing for workers and fishing.

Sit back, relax and enjoy.


Black Desert Online - I Don't Think We'll be Besties
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2016, 6:01 pm
I don't like Black Desert Online as much as I'd hoped. The things I'm not fond of weren't apparent when I was watching high level characters play, which is mostly what I've watched on Twitch. I wasn't able to play on Friday due to a bug that prevented some pre-order customers from logging in. The fact that I only played a few hours on Saturday was very telling as to how much it's not an ideal fit for me. Let's start with what I did like.

Star Citizen - Alpha 2.1 on Live Server
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 January 2016, 9:51 am
The Star Citizen Live server was updated yesterday to version 2.1. I continued my Private Test Server activity until patch 2.1.d. Who can resist flying new ships?? I was also capturing video for my next installment of Casual Citizen, which should be published this Sunday.


A Night with The Sims
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2016, 8:00 am
I stumbled on two new Twitch channels that I’m really enjoying. What I find appealing in my current state of mind, is the chill and relaxed atmosphere. Both of their play styles are very “take it as it comes” and they’ve cultivated a very friendly audience.


Speaking of Casual - Here Comes Black Desert Online
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 January 2016, 7:45 am
My word, I didn't know Gandalf played BDO?? As much as I'm smitten with Star Citizen, there isn't enough content for me to play on a regular basis. I'm also cautious about burning out by starting the journey so far in advance of a completed game. Thus far, I enjoy playing the information game. Cloud Imperium Games puts out a metric ton of information on a regular basis. There's always more to know and learn. That said, I do feel the hole of having a MMO in my gaming life. I considered but rejected returning to former haunts - no motivation or interest. I need new maps, classes, skills... A whole new world... sung in my best imitation of Jasmine. The past few weeks, I've been watching former ArcheAge streamers play Black Desert Online on Twitch. I've known about the game for quite some time but my heartbreak over the...

Casual Citizen Episode 2, Becoming a Star Citizen, lifts the veil on exactly what's needed to become a Star Citizen. It focuses on pledge options for people who are completely new to Star Citizen but have decided they'd like to participate in the on-going play-test opportunities. My referral code STAR-QSVR-JFTR.


Star Citizen - Casual Citizen Episode 1
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 December 2015, 8:52 pm
First episode in a new bi-weekly series that will discuss all things Star Citizen for the casual gamer and/or observer. Keeping up with Star Citizen could be a part-time job! Cloud Imperium Games' open development strategy pumps out a metric ton of information each week. Additionally, there are weekly vidcasts and frequent lore related content from the writing team. Staying somewhat in the know for casual players and followers can be a tough job.


For Whatever it's Worth - Thanks!
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 December 2015, 3:24 pm
There are ardent fans of Star Citizen and die-hard detractors . I never imagined my innocently intended post about the Million Mile High Club, for people who might be curious but who are not members, would raise so many hackles. It's been linked on Massively and on The Something Awful forums. What I can attest to is that no negativity or BS has come my way and I'm thankful that people have respected my "personal space" - my blog enough not to rant and rave here. It's unfortunate that we can't be civil in this debate at all times and in all venues. Whatever side of the debate you're on, you absolutely have a right to your opinion but not the inalienable right to be abusive about it to others. And there's really no need is there? People like what they like. Believe what they choose to believe. Invest discretionary...


Star Citizen - Alpha 2.0 Million Mile High Club

I recorded a quick tour of the upcoming Million Mile High Club. A backer reward from the original 2012 Kickstarter Campaign for Star Citizen. This is an exclusive member's only location that will be part of the persistent universe. Members are players who backed the game by purchasing the 10K Commander's package. Whoa...

Star Citizen - Holiday Livestream 2015
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 December 2015, 9:30 pm
Cloud Imperium Games had their anual Holiday Livestream today for their upcoming space sim + MMO + RPG, Star Citizen. A lot of interesting information was passed which you can read about here. Three things in particular knocked my socks off!


Star Citizen – Salty Tears of Low FPS
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 December 2015, 9:08 pm
Although the Star Citizen Persistent Universe Alpha was released on the Live servers, I’ve watched more of it on Twitch than I’ve actually played for myself. Unfortunately, I’m among those having horrifically low frames per second. Space combat in a game with no sticky targeting and FFA PVP, is not the place to be with abysmal frame rates. The game isn’t designed to be FFA PVP but the mechanics to control PVP outside of the station where you’re spawned haven’t been implemented yet.


It's happening - Star Citizen Persistent Universe Alpha is on the Live Servers
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 December 2015, 7:29 pm
I'm patching the Live version of the game as I write the post. Wow - the community at large is so excited to collectively get their hands on this content. Cloud Imperium Games is also working on a new methodology/process to be able to push updates to Live more frequently which will be amazing. I know I'll spend the first few sessions playing solo in FreeFlight and then Vanduul Swarm to tweak all my settings and update my Voice Attack profile. A fair bit of new commands were added, some original keybinds changed and now I have to be serious about establishing keybinds that are effective for me in FPS situations. Unfortunately, the FPS keybinds can't be modified by the players yet and several overlap other uses I've assigned which I'll have to work out. These are minor inconveniences compared to the game play features they've just delivered. Star Citizen...


Star Citizen - Aww, I made it to "Staff Picks" on the Community Hub
Posted by Home of my personas Saylah and Alysianah [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2015, 5:11 pm
That's me, bottom-right!! Aww, when I checked the Star Citizen Community Hub today, I was surprised to find my audio version of the Star Citizens Writer's Guide among the staff picks. I uh, actually refreshed the page a couple of times to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me. I thought it might have been a left over artifact from having just checked the comments on my recent submissions. Yep, my first inclination was to think visual bug. LOL It's very satisfying for others to find use and enjoyment out of it. I'd never done anything like that before so it wasn't the best. I can hear where I'm nervous or edited the audio to fix mistakes. But...but...you like it, you really like it. Big smile You can listen to the playlist here on SoundCloud
