    Valkyria Chronicles 4

    This game is fantastic, and the sequel to VC1 that I've wanted for a decade now. That's all I've got to say on the matter right now, I'm happy.

    I hope you've all been reading "The Promised neverland". Because you should all be reading it. It's been brilliant so far, and not akin to any other series in WSJ at all. That's all I'm going to say, because anything else would be a spoiler,

    Perfect, exactly what I needed to hear

    Aside from some people finding the content "problematic"... is it a good game? As I've no issue looking past that stuff.
  5. Missus just sent this image to me: Which has apparently just appeared in her University's (Nottingham - Sutton Bonington campus) coffee shop. Anyone seen one before? Looks like it's some Alpha sticks glued to a unit. Will update once its been turned on!

    I think warfronts are an abomination. In fact, the whole of Arathi has been so far. Everything crapping out gear at the level of LFR, with little to no effort and completely removing the point of the gearing process up until now. "Thanks for logging in, here's your piece of heroic loot that can Titanforge to 400 if you're lucky. Now go kill these random "rare" mobs, and we'll chuck a load of mythic0 gear on your back, and if that's not hitting the spot, go idle in a Warfront. You can't lose, so go farm some trees or something nice. Why have Blizz implemented a catch-up mechanic, when there's nothing to catch up to? This is the sort of content you release at the tail end of an expansion. It's why it kinda worked in the case of the timeless Isle. Big long timers on everything, so it was kinda an event when a rare spawned, but catching up to sub SoO gear was... fine. Not great, but fine. Especially for alts. No one needs their alts to be this geared right now! And despite all of this, my monk is still rolling with a 310 weapon ;_; ... I'm just glad I've got no real complaints about mythic+, dungeons are a bit "trashy", but that's a fine decision choice to make. Arathi should have just been an uninstanced Warmode style event. A really slow PvP slog that took place over the course of a few days, and then have it reward some PvP stuff at the end of it.

    The damage output, especially on tanks, feels pretty damn high this expansion. And normal mode is exactly that, hits like a truck, but still fair. Heroic, well... I'll get back to your this weekend about how that goes...

    Will say, it's quite nicely optimised to work on a MBP

    Yeah. It's a grind that very much had legion in mind, shocked it didn't get laxed slightly with the launch to bfa. I think the nightborn storyline without any rep gates should be enough

    Now come on, that's more than slightly hyperbolic. For the initial launch of an expansion, I'd say this is better than wrath, and probably on par with MoP. Wrath was an absolute joke until Ulduar launched, its first raid could be cleared in leveling greens, and the second was a bloody vehicle mechanic that was just downright confusing. MoP was just dailies, dungeons were pointless and piss easy, scenarios just weren't fun (and they never were! The rewards just got better). Actually, going to change my tone. As an initial patch, this is better than: Wrath Cata (Dungeons were fun, but that was about it) MoP WoD Below legion, where my problems stemmed with how easy EN was because they didn't realise how geared we would be from M+. Below TBC, because as bugged as that game was on release, It was a hell of a long time until I finally finished BT and there was so much to do. And I don't actually have an opinion for vanilla's launch, because I played so damn casually back then that I can only go off the leveling experience. I've had some harsh criticisms about this expansion a few posts up, but that's all to do with the structure of the questing and how disjointed it all felt. Which was great to hear them address in the recent Q&A. I still personally feel its a step back from legion questing, and undoubtedly the class design is a step back as well in *most* cases. But the endgame situation is fine right now. We're about to add M+ and raids into the mix, as well as the lootbox that is warfronts. Island expeditions are.. ok. There's room for improvement for them, and with a few tweeks the PvP version could be the best PvP mode in the game. But as a foundation for the rest of the game to come over the next 2 years, I think BfA is pretty solid right now.

    Feeling a lot of the stuff posted here. There's something "off" about the leveling in this expansion. It's like we've gone back in time and ended up with a leveling experience somewhere between wrath and cata. Started off with the desert zone, and quite honestly, I couldn't tell you what was going on by 75% of the way. It just felt like a load of disjointed quest hubs, with no pace, no build up, and eventually meeting up with the people I entered the zone with. Fumbled about with them, and then suddenly an event that in lore terms is pretty major, but is treated with the reverence of your typical named quest mob. And then the dungeon that follows on from that doesn't seem to reference any of this stuff at all, to the point where I finished the last boss unknowingly (Such a weird fight to have as a 5 man. Heal the boss fights are always strange and unsatisfying). Similar complaints with what I've done so far in the capital as well, just seemingly out of no where they... 117 on my main so far (Brewmaster) and decided to run with a DH as my alt. I just can't stand the pate wearers any more, they feel so slow and plodding after playing these two classes. Prot Warrior feels like crap, and whoever came up with devastator as a talent needs a good talking to. Draenor is still a mess, the AH is neigh unusable, communities aren't what they could have been (You can't right click a name and invite them to your group), and the lag is still very much present. I know I might sound very down on the game, but as my number one game of all time, I hold it to some very unrealistic expectation, which I'm very aware of. It's "fine", it's no WoD, I can see a lot of end game even though I've not touched any of it yet. It's just, meh, it could be a lot more. The niggling voice at the back of my head keeps saying the same thing, and I can't silence that... "This expansion really feels rushed."

    Yeah, well they took fish oil off the vendors, so that cooking isn't going to level itself.
