Monday Chat - April 8


What's this Let's Chat business all about? One of Colin's bright ideas I imagine. Anyway I like it, so lets keep it around.

So what were you up to last week? Play anything interesting? What games did you play over the bank holiday weekend?

Also since I missed most of the gaming news last week, what was your biggest story of the week?

Get chatting below.

Last week we petitioned to keep Colin and replace you but it doesn't seemed to have worked. I have played Borderlands 2 just hit level 55 and I just ploughed through Mass Effect 2 with my Badass Bitch FemShep working on Mass Effect 3 going for a clean up of the Achievements I'm missing and DLC. Biggest story was the MS employee mental breakdown I think.

The MS employee thing is interesting. I think MS may have a rather interesting announcement coming soon.

MS need to come out and deny it or admit to it, either way they have to officially say something, if its lies surely his job is on the line, if its true surely his job is on the line for leaking lol

All they need to do is come out and say that it was all BS and propaganda and everyone will forgive them immediately, Like if a racist homophobic suddenly got cancer... that was a bad comparison.

I done next to no gaming over the weekend! A mission on Crysis 3 was about it. was a really quiet one for us! The MS story was probably the biggest one for me too. just to see how far the guy could go before he got fired. MS's statement was rather vague outside of "his thoughts are his own" it said nothing! Welcome back Joe, hope you enjoyed your week off

Well, I found five minutes, so I sat reading the Job spec for the community manager for SCEE that's come up and wondering if I can wangle an interview. Shame of it is, while I can do most, I guarantee I get no interview! oh well. Would love to move back to London too! Right, enough day dreaming, back to work!

Been playing FIFA and GOW:A. I really like the multiplayer on GOW so figure I'll put some time in to that this weekend. Think this may be the first GOW I could do on 'hard' mode too... - On FIFA front I've figured out how I'm going to play at this tournament with a few 4 1/2 star teams if I get them, but some I'm puzzled completely as they just don't seem to fit my style. I have Arsenal, Everton, Liverpool, Newcastle, Spurs, Leverkusen, Dortmund, Schalke, Fiorentina, Milan, Inter, Lazio, Roma, Sevilla, CSKA, Galatasaraay sorted. Porto, Atletico Madrid, valencia and Napoli are the most confusing, as they are all strong teams, but I just can't work out how to get them playing well...

Was playing Persona 4: Golden and Atelier Totori Plus in the Vacation + GoW: Ascension MP with a friend Saturday. Now I went on to play Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, which I hopefully can Platinum, so I can keep my Platinum streak with HDN games intact

Played some more Bioshock Infinite over the weekend, must be about 4 or 5 hours in now and it's still not grabbing me, finding some of the racism in it a bit distasteful too.
troublemaker's avatar

Your supposed to! That's kind of the point to the game, in my humble opinion.
Dead's avatar
Dead 4 years ago
I suppose it makes a difference if you get in to the story, but like I said it's not really grabbing me so far, so it just feels like it's there for shock value alone to me.

The only singleplayer games i have managed to play and get into this year has been tomb raider and far cry 3
DynamiteWhyte's avatar

It is all dependant on me. You can't beat wrecking people online at FIFA imo. But GOW, Bioshock, ME, Uncharted etc. are all brilliant single player games that their story takes me on and I just want to play more by myself, without others slowing me down.

If a game doesn't have decent story then the online needs to be sublime, which apart from Battlefield is rare. Gears of War has a decent story that got weaker with every itteration and the multiplayer didn't improve. I never finished 3 I got as far as the petrol station and spoiler dying, and the multiplayer was still as bad as the second minor improvements.

I'll be getting the PS4 because I have PS+ sub to Sep 2015 and Microsofts recent trends towards Usher dancing away instead of showing off amazing new IPs, but if the later market changes like it did this gen where the PS3 became stronger once they removed the ego and MS balls'd up their exclusives, I may get the xbox 360 two at a later date.

I spent most of last week playing Bioshock 2. I had recently played and got platinum trophy for the first Bioshock, which I thought was a great game. I have finished Bioshock 2 but it wasn't as good as the original Bioshock in my opinion. Perhaps it was because I played them back to back and I got a bit bored of Rapture.

Spear 25 - It's just a general opinion that #2 isn't up there with 1. 1 was a masterpeice where as 2 just didn't seem to be in the league. Apparently, a return to form for #3 though.

I will probably get Bioshock Infinite but since spending a lot of time on Bioshock recently I will wait a while before I get it.

Tootell - I prefer the PS3 because of free stuff is always nice... but I play my 360 more than anything because that's what I have my 500+ hours of Mass Effect sunk in and my friends all play 360 for Battlefield and Borderlands 2.

PS3 for me. My XBOX was one of the original premiums, so I had to have all these attachments to it, and it made a load of noise. It had some great games in Bioshock, Mass Effect, Gears of War etc. But then they weren't solo-xbox games for long. My mates all have PS3's for my multiplayer needs too. Plus, Sonys unique games are much more my taste with the likes of GOW, Uncharted and Infamous.

I prefer the PS3 because of the Sony exclusives. Personally my favourite is the Uncharted series, I hope Uncharted 4 will be a PS4 launch title. I can't wait for The Last of Us too, looks like another great exclusive.

Seems the 'Tales of...' games are going on sale now. Graces F and Abyss, are they worth a look?

Whyte. The Tales of games are preytt awesome. While I still feel Symphonia is the best both Graces and Abyss are good. Vesperia is decent too. Which brings me to my next point. PS3 easily for me. Both consoles have mostly the same games but PS3's exclusives (Ni No Kuni, PW, Tales of Graces are better than X-Boxes' which only really had Tales of Vesperia, half a dozen Halos, Gears of War and Kinect stuff. PS3 also gave a free online and a blu-ray player. On the topic of last weekend. I played Lego City and then Luigi's Mansion 2 while the gamepad recharged.
