Friday Chat, May 24


We are pushing towards June and that means E3 is getting ever closer. It also means that new releases are slowing down, with only a few more titles such as The Last of Us, Grid 2 and Remember Me to arrive, before the games industry slows down for the summer.

There's certainly plenty to look forward to but that's for another day. For now, it's Friday, so what we really want to talk about is your plans for the weekend. What are you up to this weekend? What games are you playing? Are you having a party. 

Let's Chat!

I get all day to game tomorrow! I'm quite looking forward to it! I just need something to play. Nothing is holding my interest at the moment. God of War is boring me, I rented Grid, but it's not working, at the moment I'm having unending fun on DUST, but I feel I need to play something else. Maybe I'll finally start Uncharted 2. Rest of the weekend will be working on the car! Awesome!

You forgot to mention Fuse coming up next week too, but that's understandable. This weekend I'll be hammering RE Revelations and DKCR3D.

I'm gonna try and get Remember Me posted intime for E3 week. The more I look at it, the more I think it looks like balls. I want to play it, but I'm not sure it's going to be worth my time, let alone my money. Fuse can wait until I run out of toenails to trim.

Lovefilm are sending me Crysis 3 and the crappy walking dead game today too, so might give them a bit of a stab if I get bored with good games.

I am about a third of the way through Crysis 3. I got bored! Quite shocked to be honest. I expected it to be more engaging. Curious as to your thoughts.

Gloria how do you find lovefilms? I haven't had many good experience with love films I preferred using boomerang rentals.

Trouble I am glad I am not the only one that found the latest God of War boring you should definately get started on Uncharted 2 one of the best games this generation in my opinion.

I'm really struggling to put a new game into my consoles. I have 5 that I haven't touched since purchase because I keep jumping on the old faithfuls.

This is the third time I've had Crysis 3 off Lovefilm TM, still yet to play it once, always had to return it before I played it so I could get a game I actually wanted to play. Lovefilm have been good for me Tootell, I manage to get all the new releases I want and go through at least 8 games a month, which isn't bad for £11, I know some people don't find it that good, but I worked out a system for it so I get the new releases and I've been happy with it.

Bindiana, I think I've written my review for Ascension already. "It's great, it's more God of War. The problem is, it's just more God of War!" I got bored. I just cant get immersed in the really REALLY forced story. feels like a money grab.

@ trouble yeah I know what you mean I think I am about half way through it just got to the Temple of something or other the one you have to do all the mechanical snakes to get to. The story does feel forced and not very interesting not liking the combat either something is just not clicking with it.

It doesn't feel as fluid as the other games. Glad it's not just me.

may be some more metro last light for me , but lately been going back to older games for some reason like darksiders and infamous . no one game seems to be holding me on it keep jumping from one to another
Dead's avatar
Dead 4 years ago
Last Light is highly overrated, the story and atmosphere are good, but the gameplay is average at best and it never stops holding your hand.
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 4 years ago
oh yeah, I forgot metro. I still have 2033 to play! good story for me means I can forgive average gameplay. I'll still give Last light a shot I reckon
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 4 years ago
have to agree with story and atmosphere , the AI seems to be the worst just standing there looking at you and not doing any think , hopeful the planned dlc will add more areas to explore
Dead's avatar
Dead 4 years ago
The AI is awful, one time I sneaked up and stabbed a guy right in front of another one and he didn't even notice. It is worth playing for the story TM, got some nice twists and turns in it, and a great ending, just don't expect too much from the game, I'd say it's on a par with Aliens CM on the gameplay.

A change of subject, just to rehash a tired subject. you guys seen this? http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/publishers-to-receive-cut-of-xbox-one-pre-owned-sales-at-retail/0116137 Looks bad.

@ trouble thats an interesting report the way I read it is I wouldnt be able to sell my game on ebay I could only trade it in and then only in certain stores.
0000000000's avatar
0000000000 4 years ago
ive read that aswell brooker, but until E3 when they have said they will be going official with everything i wont read to much into it, it will more than likely be true, but until i here it from them i wont take it for granted yet, but they have let me down so far why not continue
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 4 years ago
Yep. Pretty sure independent stores wouldn't take trade ins due to not being part of the system. Also, trade in prices would drop like a lead balloon. the future is looking pretty one-sided
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 4 years ago
The thing for me mate, discounting these stories as rumours is fine. and I'm happy to. But there are so many of them revolving around the locking down of the console/pre-owned/always-on (or the one a day connections) that they can't all be wrong, surely? At the moment, i'm looking less at what MS confirm or deny, and more at what Sony do or don't do to match it.
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 4 years ago
if you have to pay 35 as claimed to reactivate the pre owned game whats the point in going pre owned at all wouldn't you just buy new , all getting confusing
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 4 years ago
i hope sony won't drop a bomb shell come E3 that this is the new way , could this be the reason why they dropped buying a online pass for second hand games
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 4 years ago
Yeah the figures dont stack up here so lets say I buy Forza 5 for £50 I finish it then take it in to trade in. The shop is gonna sell it preowned for £40 the shop only get £4 of this so surely they can only offer me £1 or £2 trade in value.
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 4 years ago
i think game would be finished off as we know it , they struggle now don't they this would make it worse. i think trade in prices would crash for sure

Anyone wondring why Super Luigi U is £40 when the direct said it would be $30? I don't think it should be at that price anyways....

For the Champions League final I'm with a group of friends and we're each going to be split into 2 groups and 'assigned' to support either Bayern or Dortmund for the night - don't get a choice who we will be supporting!

A tip for Bywater and anyone else playing RE Revelations, don;t even think about infernal mode without playing through story mode at least once on normal, the enemies are such bullet sponges without any upgraded firepower. And a tip for anyone with a 3DS, get yourself some Donkey Kong, even more awesome in 3D. Hoping it's a placeholder price Adrian, but it wouldn't be the first time Europe has been shafted on pices.

Yeah i tried RE in infernal on the demo big mistake. Was thinking of getting donkey kong but not too sure as i still have fire emblem that keeps taking me back in.

Wouldn't go anywhere near it Gloria, Just read that the xbox 360 version doesn't support online co-op. Massively disapointing as me and my mate were going to smash it tomorrow after the Bayern vs Dortmund game.
Zombieflamingo's avatar

Bywater if its RE it has the raid mode as co-op for online its like the sections of the story but with no story and a level progression that lets you buy new weapons and so on and its in all versions.
LFC Bywater's avatar
LFC Bywater 4 years ago
yeh we wanted to play through it as the story, nevermind. Guess i'll just smash it and send it back.

It's one thing playing 5 & 6 in Co-Op but why would you want to play Revelations in Co-Op? Kind of defeats the propose of a survival horror
LFC Bywater's avatar

yeh true, i need some co-op games.

Cex have had it if Microsoft get there way. I think Sony would be very foolish to follow this route. Can't see why the likes of EA would like it. After all all the costs are going to MS and not them
Dead's avatar

I would highly recommend DKCR3D ZF, it was a great game on the Wii, but it's even better on 3DS, it just feels more at home on a handheld. Been thinking about Fire Emblem myself, I just need one more game in the 3DS promotion to get a free game, really don't know what to get though.

Raid mode really is the best multiplayer mode in an RE game ever, especially with the RE.net support, managed to get some weapon unlock codes from their facebook page for it.
