Friday Chat, August 16


It's Friday, so as usual it's time to find out your gaming plans for the weekend. What games are you planning on playing? Are you checking out any new games are hammering the back catalogue?

Do you have something else, perhaps more or less exciting planned?

Let's Chat!

I started playing a bit Spec Ops last night, got on to chapter 2. My plan is to watch the football tonight, then tomorrow going up the fringe festival with the girlfriend to watch a couple of comedians while gettinga meal/drink. Then going to eat a steak pie while just binging on football/Breaking Bad on Sunday.

Well completed Infamous good playthrough last night might do a bad playthrough at a later date. So now have options of what to play Either the Sly Collection Tales of Xillia or Infamous 2. Will be watching the footie tomorrow lunchtime and might be going to my first BBQ of the year on Sunday.

This weekend will be shy on gaming, alas. I've booted up Skyrim again, due to some friends on FB starting a group and comparing stories. However, tonight is a high school reunion (we seem to be having one a year atm), tomorrow I introduce my girlfriend to some of my family before a wedding do, and Sunday she does the same of me to her family. All this "adult" stuff getting in the way of killing dragons, pfft! However, I have Simpsons on my phone so I'll whittle away 10 minutes on that every now and then.

If I get really lucky, I'll get a playthrough of The Brigmore Witches done. Then, if I'm really lucky, I'll be able to crack in to Revengeance. But more likely, I'll be cleaning up season 4 of Breaking bad, Season 5 of Sons of Anarchy and a couple of movies between bouts of screaming baby!

I was well late to the party. started season one 18 months ago. then stopped after season 2. We started season 3 last weekend after we caught up with the walking dead. No game time for me at the moment with the kid, but plenty of time to catch up with TV. Now if only I could avoid the season 5 spoilers for breaking bad on twitter, I'd be a happy man!

Yeah my mates are going on about it, so I've basically got walking dead, breaking bad and game of thrones to catch up where as they are behind me on the league and friday night lights lol. I'm just gonna work trhough it, give the girlfriend time to catch up as i'm not going all the way back just for her.

Game of thrones is my second favourite tv series just behind how I met your mother.

Give the League a bash Tootell. Even if you don't like American Football, it's a genius show. About 4 guys who just rip into each other a lot. It's on Netflix.

GoT is pretty amazing, I love that show. HBO have never ever let me down with their content! Sky have just started showing friday night lights daily, from the start, so I'm recording it all. I've never watched it before.

well I am always late to TV series then just blitz through the series in a few weeks or a month. Think I got through 4 season of breaking bad in a month. Did Game of thrones in a couple of weeks. Not sure on game of thrones some episodes are good then some seem really boring.

After seeing that Blakes 7 is coming to Xbox http://tv.uk.msn.com/drama/blakes-7-xbox-to-reboot-cult-bbc-show I may start watching the original show again. I think I may have to get Xbox ONE now, but probably would not get it for Blakes 7 alone. I assume that it will only be shown on Xbox ONE to begin with and then turn up on Sky / other channels later?

That's medieval fantasy through and through Bind. It's been like that since the genre was invented! DW, I remember you said you were gonna try Orange is the new black. Did you? Any good?

I'm all up to date with Breaking bad and The Walking Dead, I still need to watch season 5 of Sons of Anarchy though. Never tried Game Of thrones may give it a go when Breaking Bad is gone.

Well I've got to say I'm a Fan of call of duty but it just seems so stale and ruined at the moment been playing some and I'm already bored after one game

I'm loathed to start season 5 of Sons. I used to follow Kurt Sutter on Twitter, and he spoiled the first two episodes weeks before they aired over here. So not only do I know what happens, I don't want to see it! Sometimes, I truly hate the internet!

Troublemaker - For me, it looks like it's an old show. But it is brilliant. Just easy TV to watch. Plus it's American football, what's not to love :P

Cool, I may give it a go. Finding myself with a lot of TV time at the mo, so new and "new to me" stuff is gonna have a high premium

Probably the first Medieval fantasy I have watched so probably will have to get used to it. It kept me watching it so cant be doing to bad. Not really one for series like prefer my british comedy shows. The series I watch now are Breaking Bad, Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. Impractical Jokers the american version is probably the only other american show I go out of my way to watch.

TM - Haha, i just noticed you had asked me about orange is the new black and it looks like I've replied to that. I've not watched it yet, I've just got netflix back last night and I decided I'm working through the Breakign bad series first It's next on my list though.
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 3 years ago
Cool. Yeah, I figured that's what had happened. I somehow missed FNL when it started, so armed with Sky's repeats and my 2Tb box, I'll record the lot and watch it when I get a chance!

Aye my mate was behind on it and started watching it every week on sky atlantic. I downloaded and watched them all like a week. He kept asking me questions and I just bigged it up big time. He didn't last out the week by week episode after season 1 lol.

TV wise I've been watching the latest series of True Blood, Dexter and Falling Skies, they are all finished or finishing soon though, so need something else to watch. Thank heavens a new series of the Almighty Johnsons is starting soon, I love that show.

I gave up with True Blood right about the time the pixies/fairies/whateverthefucktheywere appeared! Great first couple of years, let down badly recently Dexter I need to catch up on.

Are any of you picking blacklist or SR4 up? Or are some of you picking both up?
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 3 years ago
Honestly, sounds pretty shit. True Blood seems to be trying to attract in the audience that were too young to watch it when it started. simply put, the now ex-twilight crowd. Granted, I've not read the books, but it seemed to be going all teen-angsty. I just couldn't stomach it anymore. Which is a shame, because I really like Alexander Skarsgard!

Picking up both Joe

It's better than it sounds TM, definitely not kid friendly. Saints Row 4 for me Tootell, along with |Wonderful 101 next week, was going to buy Ducktales and Pokemon Rumble this week, but I thought better of it and ordered a few graphic novels instead.

Waiting for a price drop, or PSPlus discount before I buy ducktales!

I know Gloria, I am, in part, being facetious. But the tone of True Blood has definitely changed in the last couple of years. It's not the excellent show it once was. Shame.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Maybe not, most shows decline after a few years, they'll be pushing it if they go for another series after the next though, things are stretched to breaking point as it is.

By the way, has anyone seen the new gameplay footage for Dying Light? looks exactly the same as Dead Island. Techland got lazy.

Picking up none & I have made it a rule for me to not pick up anything for Steam unless it has a 75%+ Off mark next to it (Excluding Indies)
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Not sure why they didn't just call it another Dead Island. Looks way too similar to be a brand new IP. It even has the same animations and sound effects/zombie noises.
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 3 years ago
My rule of thumb is to usually forgive a show a bad season, but it needs to pick up in the next or I quit! My biggest gripe is that HBO rarely let me down and with true blood they really did. But each to his own, I thought The Sopranos, Deadwood and Entourage were all excellent (and Sopranos and Deadwood never had a poor season IMHO), but not everyone thinks so!

I have SR4 ordered and will treat myself to Wonderful 101 for my birthday

Dying Light is just a classic example of taking a old game, giving it a few new ideas and calling it a new IP
DynamiteWhyte's avatar

Thet hing that annoys me about Entourage is that too many people put it down after the first season. As soon as Ari Gold starts becoming too awesome in Season 2/3 is when the show picks up. Same with It's always sunny in philadelphia. Good first season, but it just turned awesome from season 2 onwards.

Blacklist isnt my thing I thought it would be but I remember hating Conviction so no, as for SR4 I'm more looking forward to it than I am GTA.

troublemaker 3 years ago
Ari Gold is second only to Tony Soprano for me for greatest TV show characters! "Lets hug it out bitch!"

Blacklist's biggest draw for me is the ability to ninja my way through the entire game. I'm a sucker for a good stealth action game.

Talking TV, AMC's (Breaking Bad, Walking Dead) latest. "Low Winter Sun" with Mark Strong and Lennie James starts on Fox HD Tonight at 10. Looks excellent, if you're into that kind of thing!

DynamiteWhyte's avatar

To be fair, EA make a shedload of money from people buying packs every year to get the best players. And if you just want to build the best players instead of opening packs, it'd be cheaper to get 100,000 coins for £10 or whatever it is than it would be spending £80 on packs to get 250,00 worth of players.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

Or you could just not play something that is so clearly designed to get you to spend money
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 3 years ago
People can spend money if they want. People don't have to spend money, they can play the game they paid for to win coins to buy players. So people who don't want to spend money, can still win easily.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
But the people that do pay money clearly have an advantage. That's called Pay to Win
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 3 years ago
Same as if people buy COD 2 months before I buy it. They have an advantage as they could afford it before me. Or the guys who can put in 16 hours per day in to playing FIFA while I'm at work.
