Rage (on normal difficulty; I don't plan to play further).  This game struck me as an uninspired shooter, outmatched in every department by other games of its time.  The setting is a vaguely interesting sci-fi story, but there is very little world-building compared to a Bioshock game.  You get a selection of different weapons and ammo and you can buy some upgrades, but armory management is far less interesting than in a Borderlands game.  Rage is presented as an open-world game, but the world is pretty small and (as far as I could tell) there's no reason to go anywhere besides a quest objective, so it brings none of the adventure of a Fallout game.  Other than enemy chatter, not much of interest happens while you're shooting your way through an area, which is a let-down in any game after Half-Life 2.  There is a bit of vehicle driving, which I mostly found to be an annoyance.  There is a card game, in case you suddenly decide that you'd rather be playing a simple CCG instead of a shooter.  The PC port was playable but rough around the edges at times.

The enemy AI was somewhat distinctive--most of the enemies you fight are pretty acrobatic and do a lot of ducking and weaving.  I could see a hardcore FPS fan finding that uniquely enjoyable on higher difficulties.  On normal difficulty, the enemies who stayed behind cover and shot at me didn't seem very challenging, but the ones who rushed in to melee attack could be tough.

The Trial of Style is active now and will remain active through Monday.  Even if you have no interest in the event, note that all transmog is free while the event is active.  There is a transmog vendor in the enchanting tradeskill shop in this expansion's Dalaran.

It's a short scenario involving Magni Bronzebeard.  It awards roughly 30 million AP at artifact knowledge 40, so basically only narrative rewards.  (Spoiler alert: we're going to that big planet in the sky.)

"Pre-7.3 questline"? I didn't know there was one (I've been on a wow-cation). Is this quest important, does it award "stuff", or is it just to whet the appetite of eager players?

A new step of the pre-7.3 questline is now live.

Prey: 7/10

This is a first person science fiction RPG like System Shock II and Deus Ex, made by the makers of Dishonored. It is just about exactly what you would expect except for the alternate history backstory. It was enjoyable but not revolutionary.

Halcyon 6 Starbase Commander: 8/10

This is a pixel-art olde-timey humorous sci-fi strategy RPG with resource management, worker placement, and turn-based 3-party RPG combat. I very much enjoyed it. They recently released a 'lightspeed' edition that cut the campaign length from about 35 hours to about 15, but you can play either version, basically accelerated or 'Long War' style.

I have a odd problem with Discord. While all other programs like Mumble, Skype and Ventrilo all work when I plug my headset in the front sockets on my computer Discord does not and I have to plug the headset in around the back of my PC for it to work.
