Wednesday Chat - April 17


It's Wednesday, the middle of the week and also the traditional day for the PlayStation Store update and Japanese Charts.

Speaking of which, what's your favourite gaming tradition? Do you always grab a bottle of coke and a bag of Doritos before a gaming session? Or do you have another, perhaps more quirky gaming habit? Do you only play a certain game at a specific time due to meeting up with online friends or for other reasons?

Let's Chat.

PSN Update day! That means Dishonoured DLC day! WooHoo! No traditions here really. Decent coffee in the kitchen and enough decent pick-up-and-eat food to cover me if I forget to cook. But it's rare I get days like that now! But, if the wife vanishes for a weekend. It's usually expensive coffee, and good pizza!

Nothing but my chair and my controller are required

Also seems to be game day today. Since we have a Nintendo Direct and a Fifa announcement. Probably we'll see something for the fabled Wii U update too since it's next week in Japan

Ben and Jerrys, Hershey's chocolate and a bag of lightly salted Doritos with left over chilli... now that is the perfect gamers dinner.

Today is Soul Sacrifice demo day. Can. Not. Wait. I usually only play Peace Walker at about 10pm because the friend I like to play it in co-op with lives in America-land. That kinda fits your example. Maybe.

Sitting ad work and hope Soul Sacrifice demo will surfes before my work day is over, so I can enjoy it, when I get home. Prefer to play games with friends, but some times I just play great game like Tomb Raider alone.

My gaming habbit is just rolling my bean bag out of its corner in to the middle of the floor. I usually make a drink but it rarely gets touched, I just generally don't eat or that when playing. I have a nasty habit of pressing the PS button a lot during gameplay mind, mainly due to me missing so many messages from people in the past after I disabled the top right notification.

I have to get up early if I want a good gaming session otherwise the Mrs will get grumpy. Have my own sofa spot and place cushions on the coffee table to rest my weary legs and giving the cats amble lap space. If I sit aywhere else it just does not feel right and I tend to play rubbish. On a side, how good is that Man of Steel trailer, goosebumps.

My cat comes anywhere near me when I'm gaming and it gets karata chopped. It used to come and rub its head against my controller, but not anymore! Aye, the trailer looks awesome. Can't wait for, hopefully, a good Superman film.

I just kinda sit on my desk chair and play games lol. Sometimes in bed if it's 3DS or Wii U. Usually have to put something on to watch too lol

Don't really have any traditions, I like to do a bit of gaming in bed before I go to sleep most nights, used to be just handheld, but off screen on the Wii U gamepad in bed is the best thing ever.

I can't get excited about Man of Steel. The cast looks great and I think Michael Shannon is inspired as Zod. But I cannot stand the director. I fear that MoS will be another Zack Snyder travesty that should have only been 90 minutes but was dragged out to two and a half hours because he couldn't stop pressing the damn Slo-Mo button!

Kneel before Zod... in Slo-mo

I'm the same, the last Superman was pretty awful, so it's good they are putting him up against someone of equal power instead of bloody Lex Luthor yet again. How do they always manage to make Lex Luthor so crap in the films anyway. Just don't have faith in the DC movies either, hated the grin and gritty Batmans, Green Lantern was pretty crap too, but at least he had powers. Marvel do a much better job with their movies, even if I don't like that they are mainly based off the Ultimate universe.

Fortunately I never played that, the Superman Returns game was pretty ropey though, but at least I got it for free.

Also it might just be since the game isn't in stores yet but my Club Nintendo card says it's expired (I'll try again Tomorrow and Friday)

Never had a problem redeeming club nintendo codes early before, but I did get a DS game one time with a code that didn't work.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
