Friday Chat, August 23


It's Friday, so what are you up to this weekend? Anything planned or still too hyped for the next gen consoles that you need to catch up on your sleep.

I'm on holiday next week, so Colin will be covering all of your gaming news, although remember that Monday is a bank holiday, so it's a nice three day weekend for all.

Let's Chat!

Happy birthday Bindania, helicopter ride sounds well cool. Wonderful 101 and Saints Row for me this weekend, going to be tricky splitting my time between them.

Happy Birthday Bindiana. Will be on the new Xcom this weekend and probably some Payday 2 as well. Think I am near the end of Ni No Kuni as well so if I get the chance will put that back on. Also Ben Affleck may not have been my choice for Batman but then neither would Christian Bale have been so he deserves a chance. Still need to see the most recent superman as well.

If Affleck can't do Daredevil justice what hope does he have with Batman?

Happy birthday bindi. I did a helicopter ride a few years back it was fun don't know if i could do a skydive. Anyway im hoping i have had splinter cell arrived when i get home so hoping to get an hour or two of that in. On another note i am finding it ever harder to post on here due to the comments box always being under the comments them selfs.

Cheers Yoda and Zombie I would recommend sky diving its an amazing experience. I have put down a 54p deposit on my PS4 I dont know if I can pay mine off or not might be worth looking into. On a side note looks like ebay is completely knackered at the moment.

No-one can do Daredevil because he is shite. The same as Spider-man is awful on film because you can't fit his humour onto film. It's why Deadpool movie will fail and it's why Green Lantern failed.

Part of me is considering cancelling my pre order just Incase there's some kinks at release
Dead's avatar

Daredevil is not shite, the comics are awesome, Frank Miller did Daredevil first before the Bat.

I wouldn't say he is the best or anything, but there's no denying he is good, and his original run on Daredevil in the 80's is some of his best work.

Also Joe, PC gaming is the way to go. If it wasn't for console exclusives, then I'd go PC all the way.

I swear my postie plans his route just to piss me off. Saw him at the end of my road just coming up to my flats when we went out, but no post when we got back, because he does the bit before my flats on my side, then he crosses over and starts on the other side, goes all the way to the end of the road, about half a mile, before he comes back to my side and works his way back, leaving my flats the last stop on his route.

Lucky to see mine before 2 most days, sometimes a lot later, 5pm isn't unheard of.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Same Gloria. Getting used to Keyboard and Mouse doesn't take that long but a lot of game support controller input and even if they don't you can make them support it (All be it poorly)

liking xcom has great 60s style setting reminds me alot of mass effect type shooting and had a quick blast of saints its so fun and over the top as normal
JoeToots's avatar

I loved the first mission of saints row 4 the aerosmith bit was so funny, also ive always wanted to try arma/dayz
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
It was the 360 version for that price. Xcom is good so far. Also my postie must walk by my house about 3 times before I get anything.
Bindiana's avatar

So your liking xcom seems to have got mixed reviews so far.

From what I can see with the new Xbox Update that games are slightly cheaper (Minecraft and State of Decay are 21p cheaper) while I have 14p less balance

Have they switched over to currency now then, I can pick up the SR4 season pass now then, well when the new telly arrives tomorrow anyway, I was going to buy it Friday, but I had 250 points, and didn't want to shell out for another 1000 when i didn't need 450 of them. This is assuming you can just pay exact money for a purchase now anyway.

I was a bit sceptical at first about doing the surveys Gloria but in the last 2/3 days I have redeemed £45 worth of vouchers. As soon as I get the two £10 vouchers from Mysurvey I'll be ordering my new Mouse & Keyboard
