I beat Emerald Weapon on FF7... was actually easier than I remember. Hopefully the Dark Aeons on FFX HD are still stupidly hard

Yeah, closest I got to gaming this weekend was getting my XCom patched and ready to play. I want to play a little before my Saints Row and Blacklist pre-orders arrive.

Ruby is the harder boss on FFVII emerald is easier last time I played it even managed to activate Lucky 7s for the first time ever. I killed every thing in X apart for Dark Anima and Penance mainly because I lost interest did cheat with the Magus Sisters and Bahumut as used Yojimbo

I'm playing XCOM, it's hard to manage everything really. I've already lost Russia, so may lose another soon as a lot of countrys are very panicy. My starting 5 fighters are beasts though.

I didn't have much time for gaming which makes a change. Got a bit done though. On Saturday it was Liverpool Pride so I was at that all day with my friend. The choir I sing in got to carry the banner and lead the parade so that was fun. By the time I got home I was aching, blistery and sunburnt. My friend stayed overnight at my house so we played some co-op on Portal 2. Then yesterday it was Manga Night at a shop we like so we went to that and I got 2nd place in the cosplay contest so that was good :) and when I got home I couldn't move because it's been a busy weekend :o

My weekend consisted of playing Cave Story+ & FTL. Yesterday I made a boo-boo, I installed a new graphics driver but forgot to uninstall my old one. So long story short after messing about with it for an hour I gave up and just formatted the thing

I'm really looking forward to saints row four despite only just finishing 3, more so than GTA to be honest. You just reminded me that I need to actually start the God of War saga, I got a few week back.

great collection to play , like me buy games and still not played them lol time to trade in some games not gonna play again before ps4 arrives
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
Yeah I am like that always buying games and then never getting round to playing them. In other news Toys R us are saying the release dates for the consoles is 29 November for Xbone and 13 December for PS4. They are saying thats what they have been told from there suppliers.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar

That doesn't make much sense really. It means Microsoft are going toe to toe with Black Friday, one of the biggest holidays in America for spending. It also means Sony are going to release their console on Friday the 13th. Which companies just won't do. Plus, being two weeks after XBOX and 2 weeks before christmas, when a lot of people have already completed the shopping, it'd effect the sales.

Played some more Dynasty Warriors just going through unlocking the extra stages. Such a difference they have patched it now. Also played some more Pikmin 3 not too far into that though.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 3 years ago
I'd rather both were early November, even if it meant XBOX were a week ahead really. But agreed, tuesday would be the day if it was anything. Hence why US gets FIFA early too.

Just read previous comments, Nox what GPU do you have? you don't need to un-install graphics driver when doing a new one usually, not with Nvidia any way, I've never un-installed and it's always fine, does it all itself.

It wouldn't really be a big deal to most people but it messed up my custom themes and wouldn't let me re-patch them, it had to be done

The PS4 could get delayed into 2014 for EU as that is what happened with the PS3. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PS3_launch#Europe Prepare for the worse, hope for the best. Alternatively they could just ship everywhere and early preorders are secure but if you preorder one after today then you could be waiting a while for one, as this site suggests: http://www.product-reviews.net/2013/08/01/sony-ps4-stock-problems-feared/

I doubt they would make the same mistake again, especially with all the hype the PS4 has now.
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
They already have made the same mistake - stock is in short supply and unable to meet demand - people will miss out one way or another. Xbox ONE seems to be OK as the day one edition is still available.
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
Although it is not really a mistake, just people expecting too much. If the PS4 does get delayed it will not make me dislike the PS4 or Sony more, as it is a possibility, but I can imagine PS/Sony fans hating on it if it gets delayed, from disappointment.
PrometheusFan's avatar
PrometheusFan 3 years ago
That's because the PS4 is seeing significantly more preorders than Xbone, so of course it's going to have a harder time meeting demand. Europe already confirmed for 2013 release as well, though there are signs the Japanese launch of PS4 might get delayed into next year. If anything, I would not be surprised to see the Xbone get delayed in Europe this year. They're still messing around with hardware alterations when mass production should be getting underway, and there is still no confirmation on availability of the thing's TV functions outside the US. There's a lot up in the air right now.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Sony and Microsoft will bring out the bare bare minimum consolse they have too so they all sell out day one(I'm guessing enough to get the pre-orders and then one million on top of that ) No one wants to do a Gamecube and overestimate the demand
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 3 years ago
Yeah, Sony got a much bigger demand for their console once E3 had happened. Hence why they had to up their estimates by quite a serious figure. And them missing the European release 8 years ago does not mean they will miss it again. But then again, TONY is very anti-Sony.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Tony is anti-everything
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
I am not anti-Sony, I buy everything SONY, you just can not accept the possibility. The PS4 has had HUGE demand, so it is to be expected. You can not have it both ways. Things that are popular result in huge waits. They will delay a launch to EU or people who have not preordered by now will have to wait for more stock. If the PS4 was not being so popular it would not be a problem
iMerle iDixon's avatar
iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
Wait so fanboys will be disappointed if it gets delayed? I'm pretty sure everyone that has one on order will be disappointed not just fanboys. Funny how on the interenet whenever someone disagrees with someone they are considered a fanboy, it's crazy. What is a Fanboy anyway? I'm a fan of Sony, but I'm walking around praising them like the second coming, please explain.

iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
TBH I think the UK will be third priority, after USA and Canada, other countries will be missing out way before us.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 3 years ago
So why don't they delay at launch for America too? If it's popularity = huge waits. Or will the XBOX delay in USA as it's more popular there? And people who have not pre-ordered will have to wait, which does not mean it is getting 'delayed'. It just means they didn't think ahead.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Supply and demand. There will be a limited number of console available on release, same as with every console
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Didn't they already sell out of Xbox pre-orders too? Can't remember where I read it, but somewhere said they not taking any more due to over demand.
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
Why did they not delay the launch for the PS3 in America too? You misunderstand, if something has huge popularity then only so many people will be able to fit in. In MMOs, if there are too many people playing, the first get in no problem, and then once a limit is reached the following have to queue to get in. If you book something the more people who book these things then you could be looking at months before you get a chance, but if it is not popular you get in straight away. SOE have dumped EU on to pathetic company called Prosieben, which no one likes, and there is now a petition to get Sony to allow the choice. http://www.change.org/petitions/sony-online-entertainment-manage-their-own-games-and-customers-in-eu

UK is one of the biggest markets in the world Tony. It's been confirmed for a 2013 European release. Stop reading in to gossip too much.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Yeah im sure i read Gamestop had ran out of xbox one preorders. I reckon it will be out for christmas though there will be shortages more so over here than somewhere like america or japan, so if you have it preordered you probably will be fine. I remember my friend did not preorder his 360 for release despite me telling him to and he couldnt get one for a few weeks.
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
There will be shortages of each console as both companies will make it that it is so in demand they are struggling to keep up with orders. Then they get some promotion when stories of consoles being sold on ebay for £1,000+ helps build up the image of the must have Christmas gift.
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
I am not reading into gossip, just facts. If the UK was the biggest then it would not have affected the PS3 launch either. Sony PS3 was launched in USA November 2006, EU it was March 2007, and was not fully confirmed until Sep 2006. The same could happen next month. It has not been confirmed for 2013, as you would not have been commenting on a Nov/Dec release earlier on. Also it is hoped for 2013, but with the huge demand you can not expect they will be able to make it. I remember reading an article where Sony themselves were confident with a 2013 launch in USA, but were not so confident with a 2013 launch elsewhere
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 3 years ago
Did you know that the App Store is only 5 years old? Facebook isn't very old either. Look how far they have come in that time. Yet you're doing everything by 2006 standards. The same COULD happen next month. World War 3 could happen next month. But are you predicting this? It's not been confirmed that it is in 2013, but all through Europe they are announcing a 2013 holiday release. And can you link me to the article that SONY said that they are not confident with a launch elsewhere. I'd really like to read this. Don't give me a line saying they may be understocked and this means that Europe gets left behind. Because that won't fly.

As you said WW 3 could happen tomorrow or we could be invaded by Aliens tomorrow or M. Night Shyamalan could announce he has started work on his next "Masterpiece" or we could all be killed be evil robots from the future. The possibility's are endless

Indeed. But if I start going on about all that on the regular like it is a fact, then feel free to call me out on it ;)
Zombieflamingo's avatar

Or it could be a major plot twist all conducted by M night Syamalan where the xbox one is actually the PS4 and the PS4 is actually the xbox one.

Well that's Steam Re-downloading 92 games, Lol. If EE don't slow me down even after this I will 100% recommend them to every single person I meet
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
It is getting ridiculous now. I am not saying it is going to get delayed for EU just saying it will be a possibility. Considering the facts of the PS3 got delayed from Nov to March+ the huge demand + Sony claiming supply will be short = High possibility that there will be a delay. If it does get delayed into 2014 will you be HUGELY disappointed? I will not be as I am prepared for that possibility. I am trying to save you from disappointment but you seem to be lost cause. I have tried to find that article but it is wasting too much time.
