The World of Warcraft Legion Expansion drops on August 30th, but the pre-patch is already here and Demon Hunter Early Access is on August 9th. That is basically what I’ll be playing, the legion changes have been more hit than miss, with some rough adjustments to classes like Hunters and spec’s like Discipline but so far I like the changes. I’ve posted my own personal run down of my toons and my preferred specs, so I won’t repeat here and I still have not made a decision on what the 3rd toon I’ll level or if Demon Hunters are that good, if it will dislodge my current Unholy Death Knight main.
I still have a backlog of games and I have a strategy I have previously mentioned to deal with them (1 week on, 1 week off) and it worked pretty well for The Witcher DLC. I plan to continue doing it, however, with the legion changes and WoW being pretty fun to play at the moment, backlog games are on hold. This is an ideal situation because my next backlog game/DLC is Fallout 4’s DLC (Automatron, Far Harbour, Vault Tec Workshop, and Nuka World) and I’d prefer to wait until they are all out and downloaded. I have already started a game and gotten to the point of finishing off the main story but I will wait for the last DLC Nuka World to be released before I go back to complete them all.
I have also gone ahead and pre-ordered Civilization 6, mostly because I have over 300+ hours time spent playing Civ 5. So they basically did not have to sell me on the game at all.
There are other games I’ve been looking at as well. They are: Total War Warhammer, Dishonored 2, We Happy Few, Deus Ex Mankind Divided, Rise of the Tomb Raider. As well as the lingering desire to get an Xbox One S to play a backwards compatible Red Dead Redemption or a PS4 Neo so I can try out Final Fantasy 15 or Horizon Zero Dawn.
Audiobooks this month are also set, I’m ALL FUCKING IN on Bernard Cornwell’s Last Kingdom series, which I’ve started and immediately like. I am seriously considering picking up 3 extra Audible credits for Sword Song, The Burning Land, and Death of Kings. However, I may also just take it slowly and enjoy it over time as well.
I am planning to watch Netflix’s Stranger Things this month as well as HBO’s The Night Of. I’ve read and heard a lot of good things about Stranger Things, and was impressed with Night Of with only just 1 episode despite it being a slow starter.
I’ve mentioned some games already in the post I’m looking forward to but really the only games I plan to pick up for sure are Civilization 6 and Battlefield One. I’ve played over 300 hours of Battlefield 4 during the height of most people’s LOLBROKENGAME meme type comments as well as long after most people’s issues were fixed, so picking up Battlefield One despite the rough launch of BF4 is a risk I’m willing to take. I am mindful of The Division and getting the Season Pass, and how fucking burned I got. Still, Battlefield One’s worth the risk. The Action is the Juice, if you know what I mean and what I’m referencing.
