I still haven't touched The Final Cut yet but a few changes are disappointing to me regarding the biggest addition to the game, the full voice acting:
1. They replaced the Chapo boys and most shocking of all, Dasha as Klaasje. The new voices sound decent but not as charming, especially nu-Klaasje. What's sad is that the "Classic" setting does not restore the original cast.
2. The narrator voice actor does all of the skill voices with no variation between each skill. In fact, probably 80% of the VO is just that one guy. He does have an impressive voice though.
3. There appear to be a few bugs associated with the new V.O., where some lines appear unvoiced, even though they actually were voiced. Hopefully a patch will clear it up.

On the other hand, the internet is up in arms over Cuno getting replaced and I have no idea why that would bother anyone at all. Cuno's voice was the only one that made me instinctively hover my finger over the mute button. People also seem mad that the voices don't sound exactly the way they did in their head, which is the kind of complaint you get when there's nothing to complain about, so that's a good sign.

Can't wait to play the new quests. May wait for a patch first. Pathfinder: Kingmaker in the meantime.

Playing through The Last Campfire. From the devs behind No Man's Sky this is a pleasant, wholesome little puzzle platformer, in 3D with a top down perspective. Just a breezy, colorful time that's good for when you want something without a lot going on.

Days Gone is free this month on the Playstation Store and I've been pleasantly surprised so far.

The combat kind of stinks at times, but I'm enjoying the story line and it doesn't feel like every mission is "Going over there to collect 5 of this".

I have mixed feelings about that one. It was fun to play but I really didn't care about the story and fighting against some of the hordes was just a huge mess. I remember the game was a bit unbalanced, you can fight hundreds of zombies like they are made of papier mâché or die because a couple of them attacked.

Maybe, it's because I just read World War Z, but I'm all in on this story.
