Friday! Video games! Let’s talk!
Once again, my free time this weekend will likely go to World of Warcraft. My girlfriend and I are leveling our Alliance characters to see how the story plays out from the other side and we both agreed that the Horde story and leveling zones felt much, much better. I have a Horde Frost Mage and Moonkin Druid sitting at level 112 as well, but I really can’t wait to get back to my 120 Shadow Priest over there. The first casual raid wing opens up next week (or the week after, I forget) and I look forward to seeing this expansion’s new end-game content, even at its dumbed-down matchmaking level.
I’ve also gotten really into Shining Resonance Refrain. It’s the newest Sega JRPG in their Shining series, though it’s action-oriented instead of the series’ strategy roots. There isn’t a lot of meat here in terms of gear, expansive worlds, or deeply woven tragic tales, but I’m having a lot of fun with Refrain’s combat system and trope-ridden characters. Sometimes I just need a laid back RPG. I’m currently 12 hours in and look forward to playing more over the weekend.
And, of course, I’ll be juggling UNIST and Fire Pro Wrestling World. I’ve had Fire Pro for about 3 weeks, but it just released on Tuesday. Now that the online servers are up and players can upload their created superstars, I want to give it another week to see how that all plays out before digging into my review.
What about you, folks? Any gaming plans this weekend?
