For some unknown reason I was wondering what the collective noun of screenshots would be (if it existed) I ended up stealing the collective noun for ducks (in flight) for semi-alliterative purposes.

This post stems from a Twitter conversation and the subsequent blog article that arose from it. If you want to know the specifics then feel free to read the source material over at Murf Versus. I don’t want to get bogged down in a discussion purely centred around Game of Thrones, as I no longer watch the HBO show (My reasons for not doing so are here). However it is a excellent starting point for a discussion of sadism, sexism and voyeurism in gaming, TV and movies; how these matters are depicted and how we subsequently react to them. Because reactions and perceptions vary, then I think it is both pertinent and fair to include moral relativism in the debate.
Contemporary Western culture is far from perfect. Although major changes has been made with regard to social attitudes, things are by no means perfect. Privilege is still rife be it financial, political or social. Just to put ones cards on the table right from the outset, I am a white, middle class, English male in his late forties. I do not feel in anyway, shape or form marginalised. At present I am in one of the most advantageous social economic groups in the UK. That statement is devoid of any emotional connotation. It is simply a statement of fact. Therefore although I am acutely aware of discrimination, I have seldom experienced it.Read the rest of this entry »

‘How do I feel?’ [Sam] cried. ‘Well, I don’t know how to say it. I feel, I feel’ — he waved his arms in the air — ‘I feel like spring after winter, and sun on the leaves; and like trumpets and harps and all the songs I have ever heard!’

LOTRO is celebrating seven years! This year’s event is going on from April 15 – 29th
The quests are mostly broken up into four major regions in Middle Earth.
- Bree Firework Stand by North Gate (29.1S, 52.2W Bree-town)
- Bree Boar Fountain (63.95N, 132.90W Bree-town)
- Thorin’s Hall (13.48S, 103.2W Thorin’s Gate) – in the underground Tavern
- Shire Methel Stage (32.68S, 69.92W)
Not included in this festival:
Most festivals mean certain things are also available by default. The horse races are active for this festival but the other festival extras like the dance quests, Inn League/Ale Association are not active in this festival. Don’t worry, they will return with the spring festival next month.

Finally we have returned to publishing the Contains Moderate Peril podcast on a Monday, despite wealth of technical issues. Due to the abundance of interesting material covered in the latest LOTRO producers’ letter, Brian and I decided to re-record a part of the show earlier today. For some reason only one side of the conversation came out. I eventually summarised what we have previously discussed and managed to edit that into the final cut of the show. Please excuse the my overall tone during this section of the podcast In this episode we also tackle SOE’s interesting new zombie sandbox MMO, H1Z1 as well as reflecting upon those games we cannot play due to lack of skill. There’s also news on this May’s Newbie Blogger Initiative.

ESO uses a disguise system which allows you to infiltrate an enemy camp and gain information. Whilst on the quest you cannot sneak as that would seem suspicious. After the quest has been completed however, you can use the disguises as a form of outfit (and you can sneak once again). I’ve found the following so far:
