Spent pretty much the whole weekend on Animal Crossing, played a few levels of Luigi U too, but I'm still not really feeling it, it's a bit too hard to be enjoyable, for me anyway. Didn't even make a start on Fire Emblem either, just got too many games to play at the moment, so I've decided to put my Lovefilm account on holiday settings for a month or two, will save me a bit of money towards all the games due in the next few months.

for some reason i started a fable 3 playthrough as i wanted to give the witcher a rest and i couldnt stop playing it haha! still the worst game out the 3 i agree but i was enjoying it more than i did when i spent 35 quid on it! other than that i put a massive triple wardrobe up, instructions said 4 hours, i did it in 3 hours 56 minutes SMASHED the time by 4 minutes, so i was rather proud of myself :P suffering now though, knee is killing me!

Game wise I done LOADS! I'm half done on my Survivor playthrough on TLOU, finished Remember Me (Finished strong, but not strong enough to be more than average on a good day) Platinumed Uncharted 2 and got about halfway through FUSE (With a little help from Scott, was cool playing co-op) All in all, pretty productive gaming weekend. Also done bits around the house, had a tour around maternity unit of our chosen hospital and watched Stoker, finally. Awesome weekend in the Brooker house!

Played a few more hours of TLOU before I got frustrated and threw and strop and switched it off. Did download some bargains in the sega sale over the weekend purchased Guardian Heroes and Sonic CD will try to play them in the week.

So, I'm sending back rentals this week. any recommendations (that aren't dead souls) for games to rent? Is deadpool gonna be worth renting on Friday? should I be grabbing anything else? Cheers
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
Well if you like third person shooters trouble would suggest Binary Domain and Vanquish if you havent played them.
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 3 years ago
Cheers Bind. I have played both of them, and loved them both as well. Even had the AI tell me off for swearing at them in BD!

@Shep, it must be some sort of error on the site and will hopefully be corrected in the near future lol. It's changed a lot probably due to MS U-turn last week. I played a little Uncharted GA, I'm new to the vita but finding it a bit hard aiming on it which is annoying at times. I've also been playing TLOU multiplayer this weekend.

I've actually heard good things about Deadpool from people who've got hold of it early, mainly for the humour though, they say the gameplay is repetitive and dull.
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
haha trouble I gave up on using the Mic for team commands as I was just shouting Attack or Cover me and it wasnt registering my neighbours must of thought I was a right nutter I probably swore at them a lot to but it never registered it haha
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 3 years ago
I had to stop swearing because I wanted the "trust" trophies and the level dropped everytime i shouted "Go over there you stupid f***** C***** TWAT!" Yes, I use the C word as a verb! haha! The humour really kinda put me off to be honest Gloria. The ads I've seen just seem to be filled with stupid, overused memes that just aint funny. Maybe I'm not the target audience, but if the humour aint my thing, and the combat is rubbish, I might give it a miss!

@spear, it is no error, it is the rise of the XBO :P im playing some more fable tonight, the way im going ill be home early as im ready to walk away from this job, putting added pressure on me for claiming for my injury! YES their 1 of them companies 3 blokes who have claimed in the past walked away within 12 months, but im strong minded and laugh at managers faces normally! but its monday which is a shit day and they are really starting to push my buttons to the point i am actually seeing me punch them in the face real fuckin hard!

I think the target audience for Deadpool is lobotomized 12 years olds TM, or possibly seriously retarded teenagers.

I wanted the Wii SNES controller, but they took it off the catalogue, it's a nice statue though, if a little small, plus it comes in a big ? block ;)

I completed The Last Of Us. Brilliant, can't wait to go back in to it really. I also played a few rounds of Tiger Woods with my mate, we played for clubs and he managed to get my driver early doors, then he went 4 up with a hole in one. I started to claw myself back with my putting and eventually got it back to AS on the 17th to take the win. Was a good win. I then started my Infamous go through. Hard good guy. I've just got given my grenade power.

It's clearly designed to allow for backwards compatibility for the xbone HDMI in and all that. ALSO it looks like the xbone so you have the 'OCD' market of people wanting to have matching consoles.

I ordered it back in November 2011 (Didn't even have a PS3 back then) I'm surprised cos last time HMV made an error on X-COM for £7 I got an E-mail saying that it cannot be honored cos it was an error. It's £40 now

People forgot about MS being evil after they flipped the switch to turn off DRM, used game licenses and region locking. Even though they said that the entire system is designed around it and can't just flip a switch to change that.

Was very cool playing with you at the weekend mate. I'll be on and off over the next couple of days and I'll probably send the game back wednesday/thursday to grab new releases from boomerang!

Yeah, like slapping your mates in LBP. After 3 of us had been having a go at playing it, our 4th mate appeared, we slapped him about, he asked how to do it and we told him he had to get to a certain level to unlock it. He wasn't impressed on getting bullied by our sackboys.

One of the best games for Co-op was Streets of Rage on the Mega Drive remember playing it with my brother a lot and always used to end at some stage are character punching each other and not the enemy or throwing the other one across the screen.

Its pretty fun on the pc. I think there is an open beta in the next month so i may give it a try then if it works on consoles i may be tempted to get it eventually on the ps4.

Quick question is there a reason that you dont have diablo 3 to preorder on the 360? I can only see the ps3 and 4 versions.

Decided to cancel Time and Eternity while I had the chance. It's gotten terrible reviews thus far and it looks really really dated already. Combat looks slow and jerky, animation looks sloppy, and honestly I aint been THAT thrilled with Agarest, Hyperdimension and the like from the this gen. I'll maybe pick it up if I see it down to £20 (should be too difficult considering how easy the other NIS trainwrecks have been to get.) but full price seems like a stupid move at the moment.
Robichoico's avatar
Robichoico 3 years ago
On another note, I probably woulda bit if we were getting a beautiful artbook or collector's edition like we did with Agarest and the Yanks are getting. But nope to that too. Even better, how about we get a JRPG which has you exploring a huge world with towns, traditional turn-based combat, great characters, a decent enough plot and weapons you can buy in shops to upgrade.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Are you including the later Neptunia games in that? The Guided Fate Paradox looks like it could be quite good but i'm still not sold on it. On the other hand The Witch and The Hundred Knights does look like it will be a pretty good game
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Time and Eternity is getting an Artbook, it's a GAME exclusive
Robichoico's avatar
Robichoico 3 years ago
Yeah Witch looks like a cross between Disgaea and Wonderful 101. But not gonna be out for some time. I got Dragon's Crown coming in a few weeks tho which looks excellent. Looking forward to that. Honestly I only played the first Neptunia, and it was for an hour or two. I was so bored by that I stopped playing lol. Although my local Grainger has the 2nd new for £15 so tempted to pick it up for the JRPG collection (even tho the only good on on PS3 is Nier, Tales Of and Ni No lol
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
THats always something that i liked about the playstation over the xbox is all the good JRPG you can get. Got all 3 of the neptunia games but only half way through the first. Looking forward to the new disgaea game just got round to completing 4 the other day.

Ar Tonelico? Mugen Souls? Rune Factory? Not played them yet
Robichoico's avatar
Robichoico 3 years ago
Nier is the JRPG you want, even if it isn't. Xenoblade and Ni No are high on the list. And yeah Pika, got Ar (terrible) and Rune Factory (pretty damn bad, but more due to slowness) in the end these days if you want a good JRPG you pretty much need a PSP or a 3DS
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
The first Neptunia game starts off painfully boring but it does start to kick in once you get Nep-Nep to Level 18 (I think) since you get Neptune Break and with that you can pretty much solo most enemy's (& some bosses) till later in the game when you get access to a lot more stuff. Neptunia 1 is basically a Light Novel with combat tacked on
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Mugen Souls? I liked previous Ar Tonelico games (& the Mana Khemia Spin Offs) The PS2 Atelier games are quite good too (Not played the PS3 ones yet)
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Is it wrong that my favorite JRPG's of this Gen are Infinite Undiscovery, Star Ocean: The Last Hope and Resonance of Fate (Basically I love Tri-Ace)
Robichoico's avatar
Robichoico 3 years ago
not got Mugen Souls yet. I was holding off on it and it seems its a lil hard to get now haha. I liked Resonance of Fate. Star Ocean was the first game I was excited for on the PS3. But hated how slow it was, especially with the tutorial that I gave up on it

Zombieflamingo's avatar

Star ocean got a bit weird with the little girl and the elf guy flirting all the time. Was there much difference between the PS3 and 360 versions? Also lost odyssey on the 360 was great.

You mean Lymle and Faize. I liked Lymle at first, by the time you got Miracle (Who btw is Awesome) she was starting to get a bit annoying but after the thing with ***** happened I absolutely adored her. Faize can rot for all I care "Kay"

Dunno if anyone likes her or not but an incredible Tharja from Fire Emblem just went up on amiami to pre-order. She's expensive, and not out till December. But on the other hand she's made by the same guys who did the incredible Zero Suit Samus and Catherine over the past few years. Hopefully Lucina will go up soon too. Wish Shopto would get these ones instead of the craptacular Playarts Kai... http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=FIGURE-000673&page=top
