Monday Chat, April 29


Ok so what were you up to this weekend then? It was my son's birthday so we went to see Robot Wars. Someone really needs to show the organisers how to put on a real show - it was a bit of a shambles. On the bright side, the 'Robot Wars' part was quite good.

On the gaming side we've been playing a few titles for review/preview this weekend, although you'll hear more on the soon.

So what about you? 

Let's Chat!

I wanted to play a little bit more Gears of War Judgement, but then I started playing Dark Souls again... And you know what happened next :D

i went and traded everything in on my shelf that was gathering dust because i need some new stuff, i got offered 100 quid or 125 quid if i brought some MS points, obviously got the points cause they were basically free with an extra 8 quid left over, with it i brought dark souls prepare to die edition for 18 quid and the witcher enhanced edition for a tenner! 80 quid left over will come in handy when im board again!

Naff all! Ironman 3 with bro and wife Saturday followed by taking a load of meat, and setting fire to it on Sunday with the in-laws. A decent quiet weekend for the most part. Just what the doctor ordered

OK, i tried to get one of the many codes Shopto posted on twitter but it was a futile attempt as always... what annoyed me more was I only seen one thank you reply and that was for 4200MSP... Any chance we can have some code give aways on site?

I think it's quite funny that you expect manners off of people on twitter, or people in general. haha!

other than that I finished Disney Universe and spent a few hours combo practising with superman on Injustice

Wasted the whole of Saturday playing the god awful Star trek game, Sunday started off Lego City 3DS, and played some more Injustice. I think the Wii U version of Injustice plays the best really, it just has the best D pad, and because of it I've managed to keep my online win/loss ratio on a sound 1 to 1, the extra weeks practice on the 360 version probably helped too.

Yeah guess you're right TM, manners are free though.. why do some people choose not to use them

"it just has the best D pad" i agree with that the Xbox dpad sucks... which is why i have a fightpad

That they are my friend. I hate rude people. You can be the biggest arsehole in the world to me, but so long as you say your pleases and thank yous, I couldn't care less. But don't say thanks when I hold the door open for you, I will embarrass the shit out of you in public, happily! haha!

No wonder you kept beating us on 360 Pyro, unfair advantage.

yeah i agree gloria he failed to mention he had 1 of those! tut tut! but i agree with pyro, we deserve free stuff :P

It's not really an advantage Gloria. I can beat plenty of people who use fightsticks when paying Blazblue and Arcana Heart
Pyroloveridge's avatar
Pyroloveridge 4 years ago
Yeah it's not a great advantage, just easier to use. You still have to know what you're doing. Pretty much got a 56% superman combo down to a tee now. been using Testyourmight.com never seen it before but it's a good site for anyone interested in fighters

I have a Street Fighter X Tekken Tournament Edition Fightstick Pro but I don't even use it, but it look nice on display. (Thinking about sticking it on Ebay)

I'm pretty crappy too these days, but I still have my moments, not as good as I was on Yie Ar Kung Fu and Karate Champ back in the day though, used to rule on those in my local arcade then.

On Friday I was preparing for the tournament, getting in drink and such and moving TVs around. Then it rained so the TVs and PS3s had to stay put till morning. Got up, got fed and got the trophy in preperation for the winner. Moved the tvs, and just got everyone around. 24 players, 10 hours, 1 winner. Got drawn with Everton as my team, and managed to draw 1-1 in my first 3 games, which put my stock way down. Beat the run-away guy 2-1 and kicked on, didn't lose a game after and topped my group with 1 point. Played a quarter final and won 2-0. Then played a guy who had cruised his group but I usually beat him, won 2-0. Then got the guy who has won it 4 times to next best of 1. Got an early goal and he couldn't break me down, I just couldn't get a second. Got the trophy, got carried in to the pub, can't remember much after. Quality day. Sunday I just watched Arsenal v United and died a little.

I don't understand how Peterborough are going so strongly, They are a League 1 side through and through.

0000000000 4 years ago
so are we this year, deserve to be where we are, wolves were 3rd at 1 point and then it just kept going down hill, should of got rid of all the 1st team and give the youth a chance second half of the season because the starting 11 didnt seem interested in the slightest! plus poor choice of manager hasnt helped at all!
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
You need Mark Hughes... he seems like a manager who knows what he is doing. 5 wins in the first 8 games. Should have been champions this year with that form.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar

If you want to draw every game, Mark Hughes is the right choice.

I spent the weekend watching the heineken cup rugby, which didn't disappoint. I also went to see Iron Man 3 with my brother which was good too. I didn't get around to any gaming this weekend.

If you want to draw every game you would have 46 points... which is only just worse than they are currently on

Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 4 years ago
I have Dishonoured, Anarchy Reigns, Far Cry 3 and lots of others also have stuff like Castlevania Lord of Shadows that I have had ages and never got round to playing. I use to play a fair few rpgs but never seem to have enough time to play them was impressed I finished Ni No Kuni and put about 90 hours into it! Been thinking of maybe doing a review of it for the comp as my first review.

I need to get my TV/PS3 back to get in to my collection again. GOW, Bioshock, AC3, Castlevania etc all to finish. I will play Fire Emblem in the mean time, but I want to wait till Alm's DLC on the 2nd to do it as you apparently get to have Donnel as a demon fighter which should be good.

Lost track of my pile of shame, still got loads to do on Borderlands 2 and Farcry 3, the extra content on Doom 3 BFG, and really should try and finish Zombi U, but I don't know about that, the game breaking bug right near the end really soured it for me, and even if it's supposedly fixed now I don't think I could face playing through from the start again.

been on dead island all weekend loving every moment picked up dark souls prepare to die edition last night and was also locked in a bidding war on ebay for the rare dark souls hard back guide book there was about 5 people after it but i claimed it in the end. sure it will be invaluable when playing the game

Been getting stressed out at gears of war judgement giving that game a break for a while now, pretty much beat it done it on insane got all the stars and im 12th reup rank 50. just ordered hitman hd collection so that should hopefully keep me busy over the bank holiday, i haven't played a hitman game before absolution but i loved that game so i hope i fall in love with the HD collection also! also went to watch my team blackburn rovers finish off there home season (one away game to go) got to say we should off been awarded a penalty and also should off walked away with 3 points, they make us look so bad on the tele and miss half of our highlights! mathmatically we are safe because we have to get beat something like 14-0 to be in contention for relegation, shame to see wolves looking like they are going down both teams were flying high earlier on in the season!

How good were the Liverpool goals Bywater? Bar the fact that Newcastle were horrendous at the back/midfield/ingoals.

Played Ni No Kuni all weekend. Finished the main game. It was decent enough. Ally AI was so absolutely terrible that it just about ruins the fun in most of the later bosses as you are simply screaming at your comrades while they fail to bother healing. Also played some Fire Emblem but not so much :/
LFC Bywater's avatar

Sorry Whyte went out just before you posted. Yeh they were good, a few passes across the boxes and a bit of Coutinho magic. Henderson scored direct from a crossing in free kick. Was a good game but Liverpool could have scored more if not for Newcastles keeper.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 4 years ago
Aye, Elliot seems to be an able shot stopper, but his positioning on Aggers, Sturridge 2nd and Hendos free-kick left a lot to be desired. Henderson is coming in to his own, really glad he's doing well after all the stick he's got. Think Suarez being out is a blessing in disguise really, as having him, Coutinho and Sturridge in the side away from home doesn't always work.
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
I think Suarez is holding the team back a little and without him everyone else steps their game up.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 4 years ago
Think it could be right, he's a genius, but I always get a little pissed off when he will dribble in the wing and shoot from a ridiculous angle when there are men in the box. Unless they can get £40m plus for him though, I wouldn't sell. With players like Sterling breaking in (Who seemed to play well with Luis), Downing and Henderson back in form and a fit again Lucas, they could be a better team with him next year. They just have to sort out their defensive mistakes that cost them time and time again this year.
