World of Warcraft. Is a game that never really hooked me. I tried once died quickly and bounced right off.
I never got hooked like how the rest of the internet and alot of my internet friends did.
Its one of the most successful MMO’s ever and I have never understood why.
Perhaps I never really gave it a fair chance or perhaps it was just the race I chose that I didn’t connect with and so, with WOW being in the press again and with many, many years under its belt and with several big expansions I thought that I would give it a chance once again by downloading and playing the trial version.
So my latest video is the first hour or so of game-play which does unfortunately ends up with the game crashing on me.
Expect more and tune in every tuesday and thursday for more videos
So this month has pretty much started off as well as September ended.
The car broke down again, meaning that I was a few hours late for my proper job. This time it was the starter motor sticking. £140 later and it hopefully is once again all fixed.
I’m praying that, that is the last time the car needs money spent on it this year.
All this has meant that my time has been very limited and yet I’m still managing to get videos out on time which is somewhat of an achievement for me.
I have spent most of today after getting the house hold chores out-of-the-way making some adjustments to my artwork for my YouTube and twitch accounts as well as better organising my xsplit presentation.
As its Wednesday today I have also been sorting out the Playstation to be able to fit the new goodies coming free from ps+ which is no mean task trying to decide what games the kids play and which ones can be culled.
I have also been playing around with windows 10 and am planning on doing a blog post about my experiences with that.
Its been a while since I last posted. It has been a busy few weeks the kids have gone back to school and I have had some drama with the car which fortunately is now working ok and has the MOT for the year. I still have manged for the most part to get videos up on my youtube channel and am keeping to my schedule of uploading something every Tuesday and Thursday. Despite an internet outage to two which meant that I was a little late on one or two of them.
I have also manged to do a few streams on twitch.tv I stream when i can and when internet allows my latest uploads to YouTube are from a live steam that i did while playing lord of the rings online [lotro] Part 1Part 2 . There are more video’s on my channel and I would very much appreciate it if you would like and subscribe.
A few large pieces of news have happened since I last posted, Microsoft buying Minecraft is one. Personally on this I think that even and 2.5billion buying Mojang is a good deal for them however I do worry what it will mean for Minecraft especially on the Playstation format. I hope that Microsoft treat the community right and realise that having it on every platform known to man is a good thing.
As I type in the UK, Scotland are voting either yes or no to decide whether they want to stay part of the UK or if they want to go it alone. So far most of the polls have been very very close. I personally hope that Scotland stay as I do think that we are stronger together than we are apart. I am however getting fed up about all the coverage that there has been about it. As I live in England and am English I don’t get to have a say on the matter but its been all that has been talked about for the last few months. We should know by tomorrow morning either way.
I think that is all for now.
I would just like to thank my followers and subscribers and hope that you continue to enjoy my content.
So June has been a pretty busy month, Had extra hours at work to deal with but saying that I have still managed to keep up to some kind of schedule.
I have decided to aim for at least 2 video’s a week aiming to release Tuesday and Thursday and I have done pretty pretty well in this.
Despite June being busy I still managed to publish 5 let’s Plays and one trailer the links for which I will post below. Hopefully I shall keep up the pace and the fact that I have posted so far this month 3 Let’s Plays its looking good.

It had been widly reported that come the end of the 31st of june the much maligned and some would say hated games for windows live would become no more as microsoft were set to switch it off for good.
This would have left several games unplayable with out a patch not unlike the recent closure of gamespy.
However according to MCV this is not happening and microsoft themselfs saying that they are continuing to support the platform which is good for games that rely on it and didnt look like they would have had any chance of a patch.
It’s good news for the games that were in limbo and for the players that still play them.
The big question is what have Microsoft got planned for games for Windows live now? What do they have planned for the pc? Time will only tell.
