SECOND SON IS MORE OF THE INFAMOUS YOU ALREADY KNOW:
I struggled with feeling let down that Second Son isn’t a brilliant shift for action games. My small disappointments come mostly as a result of undeveloped potential. It had a chance to be a superhero game about more serious issues as well as a showcase for the power of the new generation of consoles. Instead, Second Son is more of the Infamous I already loved last generation, prettier, with more powers and better writing. But Second Son still kept me excited to discover each new power set and happy to shoot fireballs at fascist thugs long into the night. Maybe it’s not so bad to just let go of responsibility and blow stuff up once in a while.
In this weeks episode we are live and in the beta. We start some new characters to see the new starting zone setup and then hop over to some older characters. Please let us know what you think, leave us comments, and review us in iTunes.

In around 1 hour we are going live with our coverage of the ESO beta. We will be live streaming over at twitch.tv/elembemedia. We should be streaming for a few hours and would love to have you join us in the chat. And for all of our ESO Play Sessions check us out over at ESOplaysessions.com.
If theres one thing I like more than playing video games, its customizing the way they look. I love setting up and getting new add-ons for them. I probably have 40 all setup in WOW and was starting to get a good amount for ESO. For WOW I use Wow Matrix to keep them all updated and just found out about Minion for ESO. I really like this add-on manager and when they add the ability to manage them for WOW I’ll probably dump Wow Matrix.
No official podcast this evening. I wanted to get on and let everyone know that this upcoming Friday we are going to be live streaming and recording Elder Scrolls Online Play Sessions. We will be starting around 8:00PM and going for a few hours. Check us out over at twitch.tv/elembemedia for the live stream.
Greetings ESO community, it’s time once again for us to let our powers combine and form the ESO Alliance, a roundtable podcast of community leaders from throughout Elder Scrolls fandom. As always, your regular hosts of The ESO Alliance are Evarwyn from Elder Scrolls Off the Record, Josh and Kyle from ShoddyCast, and myself (Atropos) from Tamriel Foundry. For this episode we are joined by the lovely Lady Nerevar, expert in all things TES and loremistress of The Imperial Library.
We’ll be examining a full slate of content, as a ton of stuff has happened in the past two months. The removal of the NDA and all the coverage which has followed, recent changes to the game’s starter experience, controversy regarding the role of addons in ESO, and our hopes, expectations, and plans for launch!
In our third episode of Elder Scrolls Online Play Sessions we talk about last weekends beta. We dig deeper into PVP, the mages and fighters guild, game addons, crafting, and a little about the different alliances.

Beta Rumors of March 14th
Over the past week or so my dad and I started putting together a new desk for my office. I had wanted a new one for awhile but was unhappy with anything I was finding in stores or online. I found some ideas for the galvanized pipe as the legs and then talked with my dad on how to make the desktops. It only took us about 2 days of work and then some time for the stain and finish to dry. Leave a comment if you have any questions.
