Our top news of the day: a big welcome back to The Silencer! He may be in the top ten for all-time edits on the site, but what really matters to me is having another cranky old gamer around to keep all you whippersnappers in your place.
I don’t mean to diminish the incredible Ranks and Hierarchy of the Daedra, the new addition to the Loremaster’s Archive released earlier today. This is so awesome, in so many ways … there really are no words.
I lost my card and had to get it replaced. Without any warning, my ESO Imperial Edition preorder was canceled, and I was not allowed to reinstate it. No call or email, no reasonable time for me to update the order, just poof, gone. “No Imperial Edition for you; would you like a $10 gift card to go with that kick to the balls?” I didn’t know I could be this angry over a video game without a corrupt save file being involved. But in keeping with the theme of this blog, I’m going to remain silent on which incompetent retail chain is responsible. Not that I have to; think “incompetent retail chain”, and they’re probably what come to mind nowadays.
There are so many things to say about the last ten days, it’s mind-boggling, and I do have to highlight a couple. I mean, Skyrim was free for a weekend, there was an ESO console beta, an ESO Live, GStaff posted the best ESO screenshot yet, and a new Crown Store Showcase was just released. And on the UESP, editors are just ripping through the site like tsunamis. Edit – and Shuryard became a full-fledged Patroller!!!
But let’s see, anything else, any other gigantic events in the TES community since last time which deserve notice … hmm, nope. Pretty status quo. Just glad to have the Silencer back. 🙂
