Virtual Tourist – Star Wars The Old Republic 9/16/12

It’s a gloomy, rainy day outside, but we’ve been needing the rain!

From the Empire side and my Imperial Spy
Nar Shaddaa and Taris

My spy is trying to infiltrate the Republic’s SIS and pretend to be a double agent. This is part of my ‘test’. The droid factory on meltdown.

My fellow Republic SIS team members

The Republic Safe House. Kind of posh!

My Republic recruitment officer and the big boss.

This man is a sneaky SOB. Has somehow implanted me with nano or something of that order. He can give me commands I must obey – now I am a real (though unwilling) double agent.

Cool logo on the Empire landing station on Taris. 

I really do love these 3D holographic planet monitoring devices

The shuttle to Taris. If you stand in the bay for a minute you can see one arrive and take off. Nice sequence.

Taris’ view from the station

Why no, there’s nothing to indicate who’s area this is. 😛

Sith in training on Taris.

Must say this is a safe way for girls to dance at a bar. Heh heh.

Remnants of the Taris that had been before the Empire blasted it to rubble. 

Imperial building droids. They look awfully creepy to me. 
Enjoy your Sunday!

Virtual Tourist – Star Wars The Old Republic 9/9/12

Been busting chops to catch up this week on everything! Wheee!

Republic Side – Jedi Consular

The ruins look somewhat Mayan except blockier, don’t you think?

Entrance to finding Hallow Voice, the Esh-ka leader.

I’m thinking that’s where he’s at. 😛 Totally forgot to take his pic before we pulled him out after the big battle. Sigh. The Esh-kat leader asked me to choose a name in their format. Of the three, I chose Ember Fist. 🙂

My little Jedi made that big hole right there. Oh yeah. 

Just fascinated by this nasty looking critter. We have not been brave enough to take him on. lol.

Different angle on some of the ruins.

Just when I thought we’d seen all the nasty creatures… Eek! This one was on hubbin’s story track. 

Ancient escape ship.

Generator in the distance.

Hoping we get to play more today! Work and convention schedules have not been helping!

Virtual Tourist – Star Wars The Old Republic 8/26/12

Life has taken a major chaotic leap this week, but let’s see what I have to torture you with. 😛

The Republic
My Jedi Consular

If you click for the larger version you can see how nasty this horned beast looks. Eek!

Aha! Looks like we’ve finally discovered the source of heat for the tropical areas.

Some small, but nifty, waterfalls

Why yes, there were things inside these we now have to deal with. Heh

The tunnel just had a cool look.

A hopefully closer look at the horned beasts.

Nasty robot in our way to one of our goals.

The conversation with the fellow at this section was bizarre! lol. Really had to think to make out what he was saying. Heh heh

Doh! Forgot to take off the UI
The Empire
Imperial Spy
Nar Shadaa – Got sent back here again. Some bonus quests and main story line. I’m about to become a double agent. Hee!

Weird looking lamp.

The look and feel of this area gave me a sense of a jungle though there were no plants here. 

These light frisbees were popping up here and there. I’ve no idea what they are for. They said Point Of Interest but had nothing to click on or do. 

I adore the neon in this place. 

New pet! He’s adorable! (And a little creepy) 🙂

Ah yes, a touch of home there in the back. 

The Holocron we’d picked up when playing Republic side now picked up by my Imp. YES! Cunning +3 (Though I did get cooked the first time. Have to pick the right code. Doh!) X 1956 Y 3271 Z -1591

New side mission for all levels. Alien race wanting volunteers to do a scavenger hunt for artifacts. 

Did I mention I really like the neon? Heh

Police car. Lights flashing and everything. lol.

Hope we get to play today to have some pics for next week pre-scheduled since next week is Animefest. Wish me luck! 🙂

Virtual Tourist – Secret World and Star Wars The Old Republic 8/19/12

Let’s do this thing!

Secret World

You have to enlarge it to see it, but something really weird seems to be going on in room 13. o.O
I have to say this games seems to do creepy rather well. No?

I think she gave me a pic of this thing once before. Impressive, isn’t he?

I smell a trap…

Mr. Creepy is in front of that tree. Eek!

Dilapidated mansion at the end of the lane…yeah, that can’t be good.

Creepy bird on a creepy bridge. Uh huh.

Love the chairs!! And is she Yoda’s cousin? Heh heh

Yeah, a full moon, ruins, and a glowing mystic looking person – can’t be good news. 😛

Beware of Dog

Dead bodies. Never a good sign

Weird windmill.

Okay, downright creepy windmill. Heh heh

Star Wars The Old Republic

Republic Side – Jedi Consular


Still in Belsavis. Still freaks me out how parts are jungle and other are frozen wastelands. 

Getting into the areas with the older architecture that’s thousands of years old.

That’s one huge and impressive room, no?

Just look at those pillars!

One of the ancient alien race I’ve been looking for. 

He’s been helping me from behind the scenes to find those I am looking for. There are different factions running around though.

Love the look of these room. The chambers kept those of the super old race in stasis, but their minds remained active. Evil way to incarcerate people. Brrrrr.

I have more but didn’t want to flood the blog. Lol. Will be sure to post next time. 😛

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!
