MMOs are not normally famous for their PvP, but Elder Scrolls does it pretty well compared to most, and can be a lot of fun. There are three main areas where you can PvP: Battlegrounds, Cyrodiil, and Imperial City. The last two are actually PvPvE, because they contain lots of PvE quests, delves, and other content as well as player vs. player battles.

Battlegrounds

Battlegrounds are classic small-scale 4v4v4 team PvP. You can get a quest to enter them from a recruiter in any of the major…


There is a lot of optional Down Loadable Content you can buy for ESO. However the base game is so huge that there’s really no need to buy anything else for the first few months of play — you can play just fine without buying anything extra at all. But if you have some money to spend and want to expand your experience, here are some recommended DLC options. Note that if you get an ESO+ subscriptions this will unlock nearly all the DLC for you automatically for as long as your subscription lasts.

DLC Types

DLC is divided into 3 types:


Although Elder Scrolls Online is perfectly playable as a solo game, there is nothing more fun than playing together with a team of friends. Here are some tips for the best ways to do that.

Team Roles

In general, teams in ESO are based around the classic formation of 1 Tank, 1 Healer, and the rest doing damage. It’s good to know which role you are aiming for before you join a team, and have your character set up to do that job as well as you can. Tanks should have lots of Health, be wearing mainly Heavy armor and have at…


So… this is the government’s latest UK advert. It’s already been withdrawn this afternoon because it’s so shit even by UK government standards.

“in cyber”

hahahahaha, what advertising twerp thought that that was even a thing?

But here’s the problem. I’m already seeing a huge amount of people (most of whom are not artists or performers) posting this with comments like “No, Fatima, just be you! Just keep doing what you are doing! You go girl! Don’t give up on your dreams!” etc. ad infinitum.

Bollocks.

That’s all very well if Fatima’s got rich parents who bought her way into…


Savage Worlds roleplaying in the world of James S.A. Corey

This is a Work-in-Progess towards a roleplaying campaign set in the world of The Expanse, using the Savage Worlds RPG system. As well as a copy of the core Savage Worlds rules, you’ll also need the Science Fiction Companion in order to run this.

Races

Much of the tension in The Expanse comes from the interplay between the three “races” of humanity. Although it’s kind of glossed over in the TV show, there are clearly differences in each of the three, given the environments they grow up in.

Earthers

Earthers are basically the same as 21st century humans, but because the “baseline”…


There are many common beliefs that most people (including most Christians) think are “Christian”, but are actually completely different from what the Bible actually teaches.

For example, most Christians today seem to think that if you believe in Jesus, pray to God, and don’t do sinful things then after you die you get to go to heaven. And that your lovely old Granny Jemima is already up in heaven waiting to see you again.

Sorry, it doesn’t work like that. At all. Literally every part of that last paragraph is completely wrong according to the Bible.

For a start, when…


The Google Home series pack a lot of features into tiny enclosures, but can they sound good too?

So… for some reason I still don’t understand, Google recently sent me a Google Home Mini to play with. Being the tech junkie that I am, I jumped at the chance to mess around with voice control. Especially considering the size — this thing is so tiny it literally fits in the palm of my hand. Let’s find out how it works in a real life situation…


Introduction

Elder Scrolls Online is a huge game with a lot of player choice. That is one of the things that makes it such as great game, but it also means that it’s easy to feel completely confused before you have even finished character creation. So this guide is not meant as a complete guide to levelling or to be a list of builds etc. It’s designed to help you make your first character and get going in the game as easily and successfully as possible.

Author’s note: I do not review stuff immediately when I get it. I spend time with it, try it on real projects that I’m working on, and generally see how it works when used at the sharp end of production. That’s why my reviews are called “Hands-on” and why they will usually appear months after a product is released, not right away.

Also don’t expect a walk-through of how to use it — that’s what the manual is for. I’m here to tell you what results you will get when you do use it. Because ultimately it’s results that count…
