Weekend Gaming: What are You Playing?

The weekend is here and I’ve finally finished my Spring semester of college. With only 3 short weeks before Summer classes start, I’m aiming to be as lazy as humanly possible. Challenge accepted!

Following up on last week’s post, I did, in fact, renew my subscription to World of Warcraft. Putting my adventures in Final Fantasy XIV on hold, I’ve recently started leveling my Troll Shaman with my girlfriend’s Orc Warrior. We’re blazing through Draenor and should be well on our way to 100 before the weekend is over.

I wasn’t too thrilled with how my Troll Death Knight turned out, but since he was already level 90 I was hesitant to delete him and start over. However, a fairly recent addition to WoW lets you resurrect a deleted character for free. That was all the motivation I needed to send him packing and begin leveling a brand new Blood Elf Death Knight instead. The girlfriend was kind enough to run me through a bunch of dungeons and I ended up hitting 90 last night, so it’s been pretty painless thus far.

Aside from WoW, I’m really hoping to finish up Severed this weekend so I can get started on its review. I just received copies of Azkend 2: The World Beneath, Stories, Stranger of Sword City, and Party Hard to review, and I’m really looking forward to spending time with each of them.

What about you folks? What’s on the agenda this weekend?

  1. For me it’s the remastered FFVII 😃😃 and probably World of Warcraft, haven’t played WoW for a little while, so will be good to get back into it. Recently set up a twitch account, so might motivate me to keep playing, probably stream that along with Diablo 3.

    1. I picked up the PC port of FFVII on PS4 when it came out, but I never got around to playing it. The Cloud theme is great though, so at least that’s something that got used immediately.

      I took a break from WoW last August and just recently got back in to it a week or two ago. Mainly just farming old content for titles, mounts, and achievements, but I want to get some leveling done on the alts before Legion in August.

      Have a fun weekend!

  2. I played a few rounds of the Gears of War 4 beta and… uh… ummm…. well…. it’s a…. it made me think too much about Judgement and not the other games. If they don’t include Horde mode I may have to pass on the full release. Probably going to play a few more rounds in Dead Star instead.


    1. I keep seeing mixed reviews on Gears 4’s MP beta, which is never a good sign. Hopefully they take feedback in to account, considering it’s a beta.

      I downloaded Dead Star, but haven’t even touched it. I saw that it was MP and that alone lost my attention. Is it competitive only, or is their a co-op mode? I’m severely addicted to Risk of Rain and could use another co-op game to pull me away.


      1. There just isn’t enough time is there… too much to play! Being an adult (allegedly) is tough! I’m more leaning towards the quicker pick up and play games these days (looking forward to Overwatch for this reason!) So DS3 was a bit of an anomaly.

        1. I’m a full-time student, so I totally understand. MLB 16 and Risk of Rain have been godsends lately for that exact reason. WoW is an MMO, but it’s one I’ve been playing for nearly 12 years. I don’t need to focus on much, so it’s there if I just want to hop in, run a group dungeon, level another character, etc. Final Fantasy XIV felt way more demanding of my time, and I’m just not in the mood for that right now.
