Research Research and More Research

The past few days have been a blur.  I’ve read a lot about many games that have recently been released or are hot and popular and set to release within the next year.  I’ve spent a lot of time reading up on The Elder Scrolls Online which is set for release during the spring of 2014.

Some exciting news about The Elder Scrolls Online Combat System was released in the form of a blog last week by the developers, although it comes with mixed feelings.  There is a lot of fear that TESO will be another cookie-cutter MMO that features clear definitions of roles and mob aggression mechanics that are all too common among the popular and mainstream MMORPGs on the market today.  Elder Scrolls fans want TESO to live up to the series.
