BFA is enjoyable, the zones are all pretty at least on Kul Tiras. A nice change from Legion at least. The Azerite gear is a decent enough mechanic even if it is sort of like reforging of old.

 

Got a late start and just finished my first zone, Drustvar, but what a zone it was. Witches' covens, giant pig monsters, assassinations at weddings, little girls singing creepy songs about their villages being massacred... y'know, the good stuff.

I thought about picking it up and giving WoW a try for umpteenth time but I read you don't have access to the new races without grinding reputation. Is that right or am I missing something?

That is correct, Allied Races are reputation rewards. It gets better, the majority available right now are gated behind the last expansion's reputations. If that's a dealbreaker, I suggest steering well clear.

Currently available from last expansion's content: Nightborne, Highmountain Tauren, Lightforged Draenei, Void Elf
Currently available from new content: Dark Iron Dwarf, Mag'har Orc
Announced, listed on the official website but actually not even available: Zandalari Troll, Kul'Tiran Human

I've bought the last couple expansions but only played for a few days before dropping it each time so I'd be starting fresh. I wanted to play a void elf.

Hopefully there's a free trial of BfA eventually. Don't have the time to justify the subscription fee lately, let alone the cost of the expansion. It also sounds like my old guild won't have the numbers to form a viable raid, 2007-2018, end of an era.

Wizards of Legend. I love it on the Switch even though it lags occasionally.

If you've got a character close to max level anywhere (since you bought the previous expansions, I assume you had boosts) you could probably knock the rep out in three weeks, assuming you have time. But that doesn't sound like fun at all. I unlocked the allied races because it was content I'd done already anyway, but I think for new players Blizzard seriously dropped the ball with their allied race unlock requirements. Races are a huge draw and telling new players "no, you can't be them" is a massive turnoff.

I missed that little girl and the tea party, I guess I should have followed the road.  I started with Drustvar too, they did a good job having each zone have a consistent story.  Working my way to finish the Alliance story line, had missed a fun quest chain in Stormsong where you get to burn orcs alive, which is always fun.  Easy to do with a healer as the dungeon queue's are nice and short, even if I have to deal with idiots and self centered scumbag DPS untermensch.

Lots of fun and pretty funny, too. I think I'm nearing the end of the main game and will have the DLC to start afterwards.

I’m replaying God of War on the hightest difficulty. The game is outstanding from start to finish. Actually I would say it’s one of the best written games I ever played.

How does it compare to the Obsidian-made one?

Is bigger an answer? It's a lot different overall, numerous character classes, crafting, collectibles. The story is also a lot safer than Stick of Truth was, with less jokes that would be considered offensive, but at the same time I like the inclusiveness they added too.

I'm not comfortable being any more detailed. It's been a long time since I played Stick of Truth and I could easily misremember something and probably already am. Like I said this one was bigger, but something about it feels smaller at the same time. Like the story doesn't go to as many interesting places. This may simply be a consequence of it being safer.

Hellbalde:  Senua's Sacrifice.  I'm only at the very start, but I can attest that the graphics are stunning.  I've got everything cranked up to the max on it and it's breathtaking.  Also, while I'm too old to get excited of pixels, I actually think the main character has an interesting face that's somehow weirdly appealing.  The voices are an interesting touch.  Having just got off my Mental Health rotation, I got a laugh out of the whole "we used psychotic people in our design" schtick.  Still, the voices really are creepy.  The gameplay so far gives me the feeling combat will be clunky, but this is clearly a story based game.  I have hopes for something Tormentesque in its storytelling.  We'll see.  I'm just glad to have a few days to get into something.  I'll probably have to put it on hold halfway through, but even if that happens, I'll finish it eventually.  Last game I played was some sort of Edith Finch thing, but that was truly a walking sim and even the wife felt letdown by it.  Not a bad concept, but just a little to boring in execution.

Graveyard Keeper which is all kinds of awesome. It was free on Xbox Game Pass but I don't mind giving these guys my money at all. It is also a special treat that I can play the game on a 4K screen.

 

This will most likely end up being my GOTY 2018 but we'll see...

Can’t wait to hear more of your impressions of the game. Seems pretty interesting from what I’ve seen of it.
