WoW Needs New Content ASAP! (YouTube Video)

And this should be a very nice 60fps for Chrome Users, more noticeable once you get into the D3 footage!

Plus, new Intro to go with the tweaked branding!

Pillars of Eternally writing Sheet Music

I’m really enjoying Pillars of Eternity so far. The storyline appears very interesting, pretty Planescape-ish in tone, and the classes seem good and varied.

As per the video, the class I chose for my first game was a female Moon Godlike Priest, and whilst she’s not a straight up healer archetype, she can throw out the occasional heal here and there, as well as¬†dish out the damage¬†

The game by all accounts racks up at about 40+ hours of gameplay, so a real epic along the lines of the Baldur’s Gate series, which should keep me occupied for a good while


I’m going to try and tie down a specific day of the week for new videos, be they WoW-related, gameplay of other games or whatever, but I want to try and get regular content up on YouTube. First up though I want to try and get a new intro together.

Believe it or not this involves the use of sheet music and me writing the music for the intro!

This also involves me re-learning musical notation (I used to play multiple instruments as a child/teenager) and composing 8 bars of music.

All this just for the 6 seconds of an intro length. Yeah, I might be a little bit nuts, but #YOLO! *cough*

The First 30 Minutes: Pillars of Eternity Retail

#pillarsofeternity

Making good on my old promise to start bringing you more than just WoW, I bring you the first 30 minutes’ gameplay of Obsidian’s new magnum opus, the superb Pillars of Eternity!

A love letter to the Infinity Engine games of old, such as Baldur’s Gate 1 & 2 and the Icewind Dale & Planescape games, Pillars of Eternity is the best traditional CRPG since Divinity Original Sin, and bests it!

Garnering scores over 90% in many reviews so far it’s destined to be a classic.


For this run through I decided on a female Moon Godlike Priest. And let me tell you, spellcasters in this game are nothing like the wimpy clothies you’re used to in WoW, this one? Carries a big bloody sword & shield and wears mail armour!

There’s no commentary for this video, as I wanted you to enjoy my first 30 minutes in the game without distraction. This is a straight run with no edits, so warts and all!

I’ll be following it up with another video at the weekend with commentary on how I’m finding the game so far.

And of course if you’d like to see more games like this then let me know!
