Virtual Tourist – Secret World and Star Wars The Old Republic 8/5/12

I really do wish all games let you take pictures. Was playing some Deus Ex Invisible War this weekend but it wouldn’t let me take pics to share. Bummer man!

Secret World

That is one creepy looking tree!

That’s one sweet gypsy wagon!

Hobbit door? Hmm

Uh those tentacle type trees past the mushrooms are giving me the heebie jeebies.

Dead peeps and a weird creature. Can’t be good.

Star Wars The Old Republic

From the Empire

Mass Weapon of Destruction that has brought fear to the Empire. And there’s still some out there about to go randomly off. They must be stopped!

Bay of a mysterious dreadnaught at Artus.

Computers and consoles of the dreadnaught

Has some really cool corridors in this thing.

And yeah, there’s no doubt as to who it belongs. heh heh. Darth Jadus is down there. This section of the story for the Imperial Spy is kicking my buns, (And they make you defeat him multiple times! Aiiieeee~! (Was a BIG shocker after I finally got him the first time. Argh!) Wish me luck!

May your Sunday be a lot of fun!

Virtual Tourist – Secret World and Star Wars The Old Republic 7/29/12

I am not actually here…this is an optical illusion… Bwahahahahahaha!

From Secret World (Yes, the guilt trip worked! She got me more pics! Heh heh)

This place looks nasty! No?

Oooo! I’m a sucker for ruins!

The lava must flow!

He looks wickedly cool!

Star Wars The Old Republic

Republic Side on Belsavis

An AI’s dream?

Felt bad for this guy. Born in a prison and therefore assumed to be a prisoner. The Republic has some definite corruption going on. 

Weird looking plant, no?

A soft red glow hidden in the back. Hubby’s eagle eyes wee working well this day. Datacron baby! 

 Finally found the way in to get at this sucker. So sneaky, X -504 Y 767 Z 274 Wisdom +4! My Jedi Consular was definitely pleased. Heh heh.

Forcefield with Logo! How cool is that. Heh

This place is big. Sometimes the devastation catches you by surprise.

That should keep you busy for a few minutes. 😛 Hope you’re having an awesome weekend!

Virtual Tourist – Star Wars The Old Republic 7/22/12

Hm, my daughter didn’t leave me any Secret World pics. Shame!
First my Imperial Spy on Alderaan
What’s fun on trying to take pictures while she’s ridding the transport beast is that the trees take a few seconds to generate, so sometimes you can get clearer vista shots. Heh. 

Don’t look down!

A defended power plant compound

This was a fun mission. You had to open up the power generator and then my guest companion gummed up the works with Killick flying baby bugs.

Finally got to see more of House Cortesse. Heh.

The wife is in Big Trouble.

A set of ruins with a statue that match some other aqueduct looking ruins. Never spotted this when I was here for the Republic.

Finally got off Alderaan and tried to finish the space mission which had been kicking my buns after upgrading my ship parts. Still took me five more times. This sucker is way under rated!!!! Made me work! lol.
On the Republic side with my Jedi Consular on Belsavis.

The strange mix of jungle and cold always gets me.

Caught a glimpse of one of the new bonus vehicles for getting peeps to try out the game. Looks like a Tatooine Pod Racer. 

Nasty looking creature.

Some have been tamed by the escape prisoners.

Entrance leading down to some of the old technology sections the Republic built over with the prison to hide.

This race, which we’ve encountered before, seem to be the keepers of the ancient race I am looking for. Slowly making progress. 🙂

Have an awesome Sunday!

Virtual Tourist – Secret World and Star Wars The Old Republic 7/15/12

Let’s see what hopefully awesome shots my daughter and I came up with this week. 😛

Secret World

Star Wars The Old Republic

Republic Side – Belsavis

Funky prison planet. Tropical zone surrounded by ice cliffs.

Giant root bridges. Pretty cool!

Plumed iguana type thing. Love the colors

Part of the prison was built in and over ancient ruins

Those flowers weird or what?

Refugee area due to the prison riots

Weird flying fish tat goes around in circles over this area alone. I know there HAS to be a reason. We haven’t figured it out yet.

Big robot we have to fight. We were in the middle of trying to kill it when the servers went down. Afraid to see where we are when we get to go play again. eek!
Empire Side – Alderaan

My companion and our Sith boss of the moment.

Pantere Castle – a close duplicate to the castle on the Republic side.

Way in the back is a holocron.

I was on my own, so took the time to try to figure out how to get to it. And I did! Bwahahahahaha! +3 Wisdom X-2505 Y-429 Z144 

Bwaha bwahahahahahaha! (Hey those things are hard to get to sometimes!) Bwahahahahahahahaha!

Virtual Tourist – Secret World and Star Wars The Old Republic 7/8/12

My daughter has just started playing the new MMO Secret World, so I’ve drafted her to take touristy photos as she plays as well. Bwahahahahaha!

The Secret World (She showed me some cool ones in a Chinese setting, but didn’t get them to me yet. For shame!)

Star Wars The Old Republic

Imperial Spy on Alderaan

Energy cage/holding cell in the Rist compound

Republic Side

Station where bad news are to be had.

This space mission had the weirdest planet. 

Recreated projector for the Neocrons. Eight or Nine Masters computerized essences.

New Planet! Belsavis (Dang it, several of the pics didn’t tkae. Wah!)
Back to the Imperial Spy on Alderaan

Found the location of a new Datacron! Could not figure out how to get to it. Wah!

Escape pod wreck.

That looks to be it for this time around. Have a great Sunday!

Virtual Tourist – Star Wars The Old Republic 7/1/12

Trying to get back into the old groove, so did snag a few pics at least!

First my Imperial Spy on Alderaan.

Loved that tower thing. So weird looking.

Thul Guard uniform. That helmet is just not in. 😛

The two beaties did not appreciate me wanting to share their mugs with you on the blog. Bad tempered little buggers.

Some Alderaan flora.

Do like the look of this.

House Rist’s banner.

Loved the stone scroll work.

Finally got to play with hubby again so here are a few Republic side pics of Hoth.

That giant wall is a downed ship. This ship graveyard is HUGE.

And we finally found a holocron on Hoth! (Though we couldn’t get to it. We so suck at jumping.) X 3150 Y 482 Z-22 or there abouts. It’s iniside one of the giant wrecks where the story progression took us. So close and yet so far. Waaaahhhh!

Virtual Tourist – Star Wars The Old Republic 6/24/12

Health issues have really cut into my playing time, but still managed to get a few pics this week.

Imperial Spy at Alderaan

Some views from the taxi service. Mind went blank on how to remove the UI. Doh!

A broken lift goes to the small island. Wondering if there’s another way to get to it. Hmmm.

Some less ostentatious housing on Alderaan. 😛

Red energy screens? Yeah, it’s gonna be trouble.

Love the holographic tables.

Flying fish taxi travel pics. Some awesome views!

I do so love the Alderaan mountain ranges.

Have a great day~!

Virtual Tourist – Star Wars The Old Republic 6/17/12

Life has been chaotic lately. Whee!

Alderaan pics from the Empire’s side.

Cultivated plants

I saw that log and was so sure it led to something. No, really! But it didn’t. Pooh.

Killick left overs. Not something to make you look forward to entering the cave beyond. 

Spooky cave system taken over by the Killiks.

Killik nests with Imperials in armor stuck to the walls. Ick. 

Ulgo Defenses and ships

The Ulgo Family banner

This poor bot was in sad shape. Vengeful little bugger though.

That’s as far as I got. Heh. Have a great Father’s Day!

Virtual Tourist – Star Wars The Old Republic 6/10/12

It’s Sunday, the weather is changing again, and I am dragging. 😛

From the Republic side – Hoth:

A valley full of volcanic geysers.

Heading towards a valley filled with giant crystals.

Imperial occupied space within the crystal zone.

Better look at my map emote

New kind of artifact harvesting node. Funkiest looking thing. Had not had a new configuration in a while and none so interesting looking! 

Pirate base. Loved the giant ice sculptures! Can you spot them?

Reminiscent of movie Superman’s Fortress of solitude. (Smallville’s too!)

About to arrive at a zone full of downed ships. Who knew Hoth had these many visitors!

Inside one of the larger pieces of wreckage.

Now for my Imperial Spy on Anderaan.

Do love these flying fish. What’s interesting here is the grass nest.

Approach to House Alde.

House Alde’s Banner.

They have this huge holographic projector. A bit ostentatious no? Heh heh.

Funky death pic. His buddy disappeared on me or they’d have been two in the pic. Hee!

Hope you had a great weekend~!

Virtual Tourist – Star Wars The Old Republic 6/3/12

Pre-prepped this for while I’m off at A-kon. Heh heh.

All Republic pics on Hoth.

White, so much white!

There are more wrecks on Hoth than you’d ever imagine.

Some funky battle droids

Fun quest where the Empire and Republic are forced to work together.

Pirate hideout with their own pirate jail. Eek!

Bad tempered pirates too!

Looking down this cliff gave me vertigo. 😛

Ran across some crystal formation. There is a whole valley of them which will show on the next post.

This male has two humps. Even bigger than the others. Glad they’re peaceful creatures. 

Ice cats. And no, they’re not nice kitties.

Close up of one of the cats.

Wampa – dead. 

Wampa – lots!

Should be Zombie Sunday at A-kon today. heh heh.
