Friday! Video games! Let’s talk!
With Battle For Azeroth landing Monday evening, it should be no surprise that I’ll be spending every ounce of the weekend’s free time leveling up my Nightfallen Priest. I’m in the home stretch, having just dinged level 101 of 110, so I should easily hit the level cap with a free day to spare.
I was pretty set on maining my usual Warlock in Battle For Azeroth, but I decided on Shadow Priest instead. I always end up leveling and playing my Warlock, Shadow Priest, and Moonkin every expansion, but Shadow Priest edged out the others as the first to 120 and my core main this time around. I like having a healing spell, an interrupt, a Resurrection spell without a cooldown timer, a slow fall ability, and a fairly relaxed spell rotation, plus I can get into matchmaking raids quicker if I offspec healing.
With my favorite Warlock spec (Demonology) getting entirely reworked in Battle For Azeroth, I also wanted to give Blizzard time to iron it out a little once the other Warlock players hit the level cap and begin raiding.
Outside of WoW, I’ve mainly been catching up on EVO 2018 stuff. I really liked the UNIEST (short for the absurdly named Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late(st), and sometimes acronymed UNIEL) and Fighting EX Layer top 4’s, and was surprised by how much I enjoyed watching top 8’s for Tekken 7, Soul Calibur 6, and Dragon Ball FighterZ, given that I’m not really into those series. Street Fighter V’s top 8 was great, as was Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator 2 and BlazBlue Cross-tag Battle. I really want to check out UNIEST when (or if) its price drops.
I did receive a review key for Fire Pro Wrestling World on PS4, which I’m installing as we speak. I’ve been looking forward to the game for a while now (especially as a NJPW fan) and can’t wait to dive in.
What about you, folks? Any gaming plans this weekend?
