Well hopefully going to get to play a bit more of Infamous and really need to finish Last of Us and if I get time want to make a start on the Sly collection as never played them on the PS2.
Bindiana 1 year ago
One thing I will say is that Sly 1 is nothing like the rest of the games (It's still good) and Sly 2 only really gets great after chapter 2 (3)

Was hoping to be going to the seaside tomorrow, not sure if that's happening now, probably have a BBQ at some point seeing as I won one in a competition the other day. Other than that, probably Pikmin, Animal Crossing and maybe even start Earthbound.
Gloria 1 year ago
My plans are to play FTL to death (Best £1.75 I have spent in a while) and maybe start Divine Divinity or Fallout 1
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
I've been playing XCOM lately. Bloody hard game, but I'm enjoying it. Currently in a tough battle with 3 of my main 5 characters out 'wounded' so I have to go in with some rookies. Wish I had my sniper :( Tonight will be pizza night, tomorrow making beer can chicken and sunday just going to chill methinks.

Oh yeah, and it's football time again!
DynamiteWhyte 1 year ago
Plan to try and play some assassins creed 3, well at least take the shrink wrap off it. Unfortunately 2 kids have reduced my gaming time to a minimum. Need to get through some of these games before the new consoles arrive.
csrogue 1 year ago
Yeah looking forward to the Premier league starting up again in 2 weeks time glad to get to September so there is no more transfer talk.
Bindiana 1 year ago
I need to get back to AC3, but the constant fast travelling annoys me due to the loading times.
DynamiteWhyte 1 year ago
I bought the Assassins Anthology back in March i think, yet to play any of it
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Put any bets on whyte? Also this weekend ill be blazing through a few easy enjoyable plats I think whilst taking a trip down memory lane.
JoeToots 1 year ago
Here's another question will you play the current generation consoles when you own a next gen one?
JoeToots 1 year ago
Yes, hell i'll even still play my Gamecube & PS2 games
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
If there are still games I want to play released on this gen will still play it or if I fancy replaying a game from this gen. Not sure where I am going to put all my consoles but will figure it out.
Bindiana 1 year ago
I know one game a few of us will be playing when it comes out next year for the PS3. Tales of Xilia 2
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
And Tales of Symphonia as well
Bindiana 1 year ago
I still play my old games as well. Have been tempted to set my mega drive up for a while and play some Buck Rogers loved that game. Whyte you been playing on ironman mode? Nothing worse than losing a good squad, i hope the XCOM : enemy within announcement is a sequel that will fix some of the issues i had with the first enemy unknown like why cant i send out two ships at the one time. Planning on playing some Dynasty Warriors and Pikmin this weekend might even put some Monster Hunter on been in the mood for that since seeing the whole frontier stuff the other day.
Zombieflamingo 1 year ago
And Dark Souls 2 as well
Zombieflamingo 1 year ago
Persona 5 (Maybe)
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
And Final Fantasy 13-3
Zombieflamingo 1 year ago
I won't have a PS4 by the time I get Dark Souls 2 but I forgot some people here are getting them day one, i'll add Lightning Returns and Lords of Shadow 2 to that list then
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Forgot about lords of shadows 2 whens that due?
Zombieflamingo 1 year ago
No one knows Lol
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Saints Row 4 has got a 15 rating in Australia

Did you have a look at the new weekly sale on Humblebundle.com yet Zombie? (It's Amazing) Don't forget it's for charity
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Oh and more Bundles for people who are interested: http://www.indiegala.com/ : http://www.indieroyale.com/ : http://www.bundlestars.com/?igb_article (Right behind the 1C Bundle and the Deep Silver Bundle in my opinion)
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Is that the kings bounty games think i seen it last night.
Zombieflamingo 1 year ago
Kings Bounty and Men of War, yes
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Ok. No matter how you look at this, this is a good bundle http://www.bundlestars.com/all-bundles/bundle-seven/#title93tab
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Joe - Not had a look yet. Usually wait till the satruday, but will probably have a look tonight. Will inform you on twitter.
DynamiteWhyte 1 year ago
And yes, I'll still play current gen. MGS etc. if they only come out on it. I'll upgrade any game like watch dogs to PS4 mind. And my missus will hopefully be good on fifa 14 so i can play a few games with her on ps3.
DynamiteWhyte 1 year ago
Always nice receiving an email saying that Rayman has dropped in price for the WII U, Nice one Joe!!! cannot wait for that, more money towards more games!!

Looks like my seaside trip is back on for tomorrow:)

Joe if you want an easy platinum try Cartoon Network Punch Time Explosion
Bindiana 1 year ago
I'v not played that much of Lords of Shadow, been waiting for the DLC to go on offer. I might just wait till the complete edition is going for cheap on Steam
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Why not spend your time playing actual games Tootell instead of going for easy platinum's **Cough Cough Smurfs 2 Cough Cough**
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Never Played Lords of Shadow I have it just never got round to putting it in my machine
Bindiana 1 year ago
The best will forever be Symphony of the Night. Mind you I have still to get my hands on the DS games
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
I never played smurfs 2 though haha
JoeToots 1 year ago
Sure you didn't
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
check my trophy card haha, plus childish games are my favorite sort of game i love games like jak and daxter, sly and my personal favorite ratchet and clank. which brings me onto other matters im thinking of getting a ratchet and clank tattoo
JoeToots 1 year ago
One: You just as bad as Whitey saying Jak, Sly & Ratchet are childish, Smurfs 2 is childish. Two: Are you bloody mental?
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Nox, telling it like it is since 2012 ;)
Gloria 1 year ago
You know it
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Don't get me wrong Jak,Sly & Ratchet can be played by kids but by no means are they for kids specifically, Smurfs 2 is though. It's like saying The Wind Waker is only for kids just cos it's Cel-shaded
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
If you're going to get the tattoo, get one of the whole gang. Qwark, Ratchet and Clank all in there.
DynamiteWhyte 1 year ago
Preaching to the converted, as a Nintendo gamer I've seen it a million times.
Gloria 1 year ago
Nox look at the age ratings and yes there childish to me because I played them as a child there for in my opinion there childish.
JoeToots 1 year ago
Fifa is a 3 and up therefore it is childish
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Because someone's opinion clAshes with yours there's need to be all dickish about it accept it and move on. Try being open minded and seeing things from other people's perspective in future. Also whyte that's the plan
JoeToots 1 year ago
So is SSX. Funny thing is Littlebigplanet is a 7 and up
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
I'm just not going to entertain you Nox my opinion is its childish you're not going to change my opinion.
JoeToots 1 year ago
I'm just saiyan is all. You are bundling a series like Jak with rubbish like Smurfs and Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs. Also on the topic of Thophy's "Just get games that you like, and if you really like them, try and earn the platinum. There really is no point in wasting your time trying to increase the number next to a trophy by playing easy and/or rubbish games just for a platinum. "
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Ironically children don't want so called 'childish; games.
Gloria 1 year ago
Personally I don't really care, peoples are entitled to their opinions. I just really like annoying people, nothing personal
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
You all should know this about me by now
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Now your getting picky and trying to crack snide remarks but I'm not rising to it.
JoeToots 1 year ago
& how can we forget the most childish game of all ~~~~~~~~~ Manhunt 2 ~~~~~~~~~~
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Awww but that's half the fun :( Go on, you know you want to
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
I know what you mean Gloria most children are only Intrested In call of duty
JoeToots 1 year ago
Ok other topic. What's everyone favorite game of the year so far?
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
This has all stemmed from me renting smurfs 2 because I wanted to see how good boomerang are at sending games out on release
JoeToots 1 year ago
Pick one game that was released this year and one game that was released before 2013 but you only started playing this year
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
You're a man after my own heart Nox ;)
Gloria 1 year ago
My favorite game of the year is smur... No the last of us
JoeToots 1 year ago
You could have rented Tales Of Xillia, you said you want to get into JRPGs
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
HAHAHAHAHA, nice one Tootell. Now pick an old game that you played for the first time this year
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
So far? The Last of Us. Easily. And to be fair, my nephews favourite game growing up as was GTA, and I don't blame him. A lot of kids don't want to be forced to do missions and have a set goal in a game. They just want mindless driving about and having fun really. If they could get a good, kids version of GTA, they'd be on to a winner.
DynamiteWhyte 1 year ago
That's why they all loved Minecraft for a while but now they all say it's crap
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
An old game that I played for the first time this year. Hmm. I don't even know. Will be Ratchet & Clank trilogy if I ever get my hands on it. I think the only 2012 game I have played this year long after the release is AC3...
DynamiteWhyte 1 year ago
Uncharted drakes fortune.
JoeToots 1 year ago
Umm Kids version of GTA = Toy Story 3 (Toy Box Mode)
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Probably Animal Crossing for me, 88 hours of playtime so far and still not bored of it. Pikmin house and furniture incoming by spotpass today BTW ;)
Gloria 1 year ago
Good kids version of GTA = Lego City Undercover ;)
Gloria 1 year ago
Best game this year is a tough one torn between Ni No Kuni, Last of Us and Metal Gear Rising. Metal Gear rising is the most fun game I have played this year but not the best so probably between Ni No Kuni and Last of Us
Bindiana 1 year ago
My fav game that came out this year is probably Last of Us, but it is closely followed by Tomb Raider, my fav old game that I just played this year has to be Spec Ops the line I only got it the other day from plus and my god it is amazing, and this is coming from a guy who in usual hates military shooters, followed by the nostalgia kick that is Ratchet and Clank 3.
iMerle iDixon 1 year ago
I keep on meaning to pick up Ni No Kuni, but my back log is freaking insane.
iMerle iDixon 1 year ago
My favorite game of the year (I'm guessing Dark Arisen and Journey Collection don't count) is Fire Emblem (Animal Crossing is a close second). My favorite "Old" game that I played this year is FTL: Faster Than Light (Don't know if I played 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors last year or this year)
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Old game played this year is either Sleeping Dogs or Journey
Bindiana 1 year ago
I doubt it is big as mine, my Steam Library alone is 154 games large and I have only played about 10 of them
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Best game this year for me is Gears of War: Judgement, and DmC.
Whitey 1 year ago
No it's not that big, it's about 15 games or so, but I'm afraid I'll just leave them if I don't get them finished by next gen, like I did with my PS2, granted I didn't have a backlog then, but after I got my 360 my PS2 never saw the light of day. Fibe of those games are God Of War titles so burning through those will probably get a bit tedious.
iMerle iDixon 1 year ago
Gears Judgement? Really? DMC was pure class though but it sold like Bacon in a mosque.
iMerle iDixon 1 year ago
Here is some of my console backlog https://twitter.com/SaiyanNox/status/343098903530438656
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Can't quite make out the picture (damn sun), but it looks like you win.
iMerle iDixon 1 year ago
Judgement isn't that bad, the campaign is worth playing and the MP is still fun. DmC passed my expectations to be honest, didn't think it would be that good.
Whitey 1 year ago
Take out about 5 of the games in that pic
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
I played through Judgement and I have to say it is the worst one of the lot, in my opinion, not saying it's terrible it just doesn't live up to the name.
iMerle iDixon 1 year ago
Whitey is a Gears fanboy
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
It's the worst of the series yes I agree, but still not a bad game I think. Bit of a let down coming from 3 though, plus the way they are trying to over charge for little things really pisses me off.
Whitey 1 year ago
I used to be...
iMerle iDixon 1 year ago
The whole COG VS COG thing was crap combine that with the different multi colored skins just turned it into a freaking mess, that over run was pretty cool though.
iMerle iDixon 1 year ago
I remember seeing a DLC pack when Gears 3 was release that was £25 for weapon skins. Bloody Skins!
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Judgement wasnt great it was ok but not great surely you have played something better then that this year what about Tomb Raider?
Bindiana 1 year ago
Yep it was more for the ugly ass skins than the actual season pass. What ever happened to unlockables?
iMerle iDixon 1 year ago
The worst thing is, I bought all skins for Gears 3 and Judgement. Yeah I have played Tomb Raider, though not that far into it yet, need to get back to it.
Whitey 1 year ago
Unlockables have sadly gone the way of the dodo, that's why i'm shifting more towards PC Gaming and its plethora of indie games
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
I'll admit I got the skins for Gears 3, a lesson for you all don't play games while you're drunk.
iMerle iDixon 1 year ago
*Facepalm* Tell us all what you where thinking when you made that purchase
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Question to Whitey
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Gears 3 they went mental with weapon skins and characters you could get weapon skins with all sorts of things like the limited edition Console, controllers games as well as buying them as well.
Bindiana 1 year ago
Something about indies just doesn't click with me, apart from the odd exception.
iMerle iDixon 1 year ago
I was thinking "I want more skins" then after thought "just paid almost same amount as the full game for some coloured skins" but still
Whitey 1 year ago
To be fair though, I blame Oblivion, that's where Cliff got the idea from, I remember him saying he was amazed that people would pay for armoured horse skin, but Epic went way over the top.
Whitey 1 year ago
It depends what Indies. Games like FTL, Shadowrun Returns,Cave Story,Ben There Dan That, Audiosurf & Hotline Miami are experiences you wouldn't get with a AAA game
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
I'm guessing the whole thing with the Horse Armor was for immersion but as you said it just ended up being a skin.
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
But that was with the premise that the Horse Armor would add to the game. Skins are skins
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
DLC has just gotten out of hand now, micro-transactions are ok for free-to-play games but to pay a crap load of extra money for stuff that should be in-game unlocks on a game you've already paid full price for, is just stupid. But saying that, I'm still the type to fall for it and pay them because I like to have the little extra things, not in all games but my main ones I do.
Whitey 1 year ago
If whiteys a fan boy god id hate to know what I am I got to rank 100 on gears 2 on two seperate accounts I got through all the re ups on gears 3 and got through all 10 reups in less than a month on judgement without buying 2x xp
JoeToots 1 year ago
Holy crap, really? I'm 100 on Gears 2, think still on 2nd re-up on Gears 3 and only on 2 or 3 on Judgement so far. I got all achievements on Gears 2 though and all but 1 on Gears 3.
Whitey 1 year ago
Yeah really haha what puts alot of people of gears is the learning curve. That game use to dominate my life now I have no xbox specifically so I can't play them
JoeToots 1 year ago
D buy an xbox one specifically for gears if it was announced
JoeToots 1 year ago
you must of been on gears constantly Joe probably whooped my ass lots of times
Bindiana 1 year ago
Fanboy/Girl (Gloria) doesn't necessarily mean you play a lot of a particular game or support a particular company, it's more when the person think the game or company can do no wrong. Example: The people that signed the petition to bring back the DMR and all the pitfalls that come with that to the Xbox One
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
I was I was one of them annoying people who just wall bounce fast as f**k laugh te shoot you

Order be honest Cliffy be could do no wrong until he left look at his girlfriend for example

You seems like the kind of person who would do anything to win, me i'm kinda (In the words of Dark Soul Metagame haters) an Honer Duelist. I like an even playing ground

Gears Judgement was a big greasy turd, you could have more fun with it by using the disk as a frisbee than you could playing the game.

Talking about gaming drunk, I remember coming home 2 or 3 FIFAs ago and buying Joleon Lescott for about 8k to make my defence better. It didn't go down well with sober me.

Been a while since I been on here, been dealing with real life mainly. Last week I went to Sunderland Air Show and basically spent the entire time in the Nintendo 3DS Tent and going to the Wii U tent every now and again. Got tons of Streetpass hits and was invited to join the Streetpass Newcastle gang. So tomorrow hopefully I'll be going to a meet for that. Gotta love me some streetpass. Been playing a lot of Pikmin 3 recently too. Fantastic game.

Nox i am a try hard because i always want to push myself to the best of my ability in games and also outside of games
JoeToots 1 year ago
Being a Tryhard and challenging yourself are completely different things
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 year ago
Any ways Nox, how am I a Gears fanboy? I already admitted Judgement isn't as good as the others and I hate what Epic are doing to the franchise, but still I'm a Gears fan, there's a difference.
Whitey 1 year ago
obviously im the latter
JoeToots 1 year ago
whitey you're not a fanboy its just nox likes to come out with a load of shit occasionally to try and provoke a reaction

Tales of Xilia D1 edition on here is expensive! In the last few days of Lovefilm game rentals I have been renting out PS2 games. This weekend I got Destruction Derby as missed out originally. I was part of the official Beta testing for PS2 games, and DD was one of them, and played it a lot online before the game was released, but the actual game there was so much more to it. The Beta testing only gave a partial glimpse (the online modes) of what the game offered but also meant I did not rush and buy them. I think the current gen will last longer before fading off, it may not even fade off at all - quite a few people are getting fed up of consoles now, and it is stated it is going to be the last generation. Consoles need to go back to cartridge form or some form of instant loading, to put them apart from PC tech. Turned PS3 on again yesterday after about a month or so and it took ages updating, first the console and then the PSN store. Every time I turn on the PS3 there is an update, the Xbox 360 does not get that many updates as it seems the updates are done from MS servers and does not need to update the consoles. Turned on PS2 again after a year and it was instant gaming, no updates. The next gen will probably be even worse.
superniceguy 1 year ago
The next gen will be better as they will be done on the sly...just like what happens with PS+ users.
