That's pretty much why I would refuse to play anything online with you :\

Elder Scrolls Online is being handled by a separate development team than the rest of the TES or Fallout. Since we'll probably get Fallout 4 news this year that leaves a 0% chance of any TES news not related to online. Fallout is developed by the main Bethesda crew, because for some reason the gaming industry HATES Obsidian. They're seriously the red headed step child who gets viciously beaten every hour of every day.

Heard fallout 4 will be in Boston. That could mean the institution and androids.

MMO's have their place. I'm excited about the upcoming ElderScrolls online. It looks amazing, and you can play it on your own or with friends.
And yes, it is being handled by a newer branch of Bethesda - but, they are supposed to be working really close with them to keep things correct, since this game will be pre-MorrowWind & Oblivion.

My son Wes really likes the Bioshock games, and is looking for to the new one.

Why? I said "aka noobs," not good gamers like you. I love me some deathmatches and shoot 'em ups, just not questing. I'm a great team player, and I always try to fight off the noobs and set a good example (i.e. being the team medic and ammo distributor and stuff). I got put with some great people on Red Dead, and once we played for about 12 hours nonstop. My Online Gaming motto: The team comes first, including over my own personal score.

This is quite true. I read that a month ago or so while searching endlessly for FO4 news.

ESO is being developed by a new branch of Zenimax, who owns Bethesda. Hah. ESO also stands for European Southern Observatory. I just realized that.

MMOs are very fun, and social interaction is only really required for end game content where you're max level and you're doing the super hard dungeons. I play WoW solo, and just join random dungeons when I want better gear. Do a quick run without talking, and then get out.

Oh, and need I mention subscription fees? No thank you. I could buy several solo games with the money it takes to play an MMO for a couple months. :\ That's really the main put-off to me. I am a change hoarder and a pinch-penny. :9 I hate how a bunch of greedy corporates are setting out to make a huge percentage of online anything cost. Why sell something once for 60 bucks when you can keep charging again and again and again?

It costs a lot to keep servers running. Not to mention that that money also funds the other projects the company has going. $15 is a bit steep. I don't mind it though. You get a seriously huge sandbox world with a near infinite amount of stuff to do, and they constantly add new things.

Oh god dammit. That owl is back. It sits outside my window and won't shut up. Owls are not adorable either. Unless they're walking on the ground. They have a hilarious waddle. Anyway. This one is extremely annoying. Oh no. No no no. It's not outside my window. It's in my ceiling. Why do I live in the Planet Express HQ!

What do you mean "in" your ceiling? You mean it's in your attic or something?

The hard part about online is the up keep of technology. Servers, maintenance, and people all cost money.

So, for the folks interested in getting a lesser spend good tablet I would recommend an Asus. If you want a smaller one get the Nexus 7. Also, sketchbook pro is a great sketch program.

Also, I think I've finally 'found' the cartoon-anime style I want to use for my minfig-charactures. After I complete one or two I'll post them. I'll still do the Lil chibi style for some card faces, but I feel like I'm getting a little closer.

@Mac: that doesn't sound fun ...
