Any news on what date GTA:V will be shipping on?
Johno Muller's avatar

Probably the 13th, 14th or 16th of September.

2 working days before release is usual.

Hey Philip, there's no official word on when GTA V will ship yet. It all depends on when ShopTo get their shipment into the warehouse and right now that date isn't known. Sorry!

Fair enough, thanks for asking! I really can't wait for the 17th Sept! Not much longer to go now though :-D

I noticed that the special edition of Castlevania that comes out soon has a copy of the 3DS version as digital copy for the PS3 and 360 which is quite good as I did fancy trying that and just now it would work out cheaper doing that than buying just the 3DS version.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Does it?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Well that is that ordered. Everything is coming full circle since I didn't buy Lords of Shadow new and haven't got the DLC + getting Mirror of Fate with it is a great sweetener
Zombieflamingo's avatar

Also if you are one for steel boxes a certain online retailer starting with the letter Z has a cool box for the PS3 version.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

Nintendo has annouced they are making a new handheld called the 2ds.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
That looks horrible but the better news is that the Wii U is getting a price-cut. Maybe now Kevin will shut up about it
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Oh & "Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD Special Edition which comes with a figurine of Ganondorf dual wielding swords" One phrase to say: Name your price.
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
I thought the phrase all the interent kiddies use is "take my money" Yeah 2ds does look a little weird supposedly its more aimed at younger kids and has taken away the 3d.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Well there are still a load of people that sill have the idea in their head that the 3DS is a child killer and 3D without glasses is some sort of witchcraft. Also I was just told that the Wind Waker HD Special Edition is a Game exclusive
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Thats not a bad idea with the 2DS I know a few people with broken eyes that it gives them a headache with the 3D on it is a reasonable price as well. How much is the Wii U getting cut to?
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Also the 3DS can be a child killer you just need a good swing.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Nintendo don't set the UK prices so I don't know
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Also a Wii U WindWaker bundle "The bundle includes a black Deluxe Wii U console, a GamePad controller with gold lettering, a gold Hyrule crest and gold symbols from the game, a download code for the digital version of Hyrule Historia, and a code that can be used to download The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD from the Nintendo eShop immediately at no additional cost."
Robichoico's avatar
Robichoico 3 years ago
Sounds like the Ganondorf figure is GAME exclusive. And £60 for the set. Can't resist however. Come on Shopto. You need to start getting some Nintendo exclusives. Just about every release now you're losing out to those scalpers.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Question: When I go to Pre-Order them it says "Pay Now" does that mean what I think that means?
Robichoico's avatar
Robichoico 3 years ago
Not sure. I pre-ordered X with them and cancelled and it didn't affect my card so....
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I got an answer from then on Twitter so I have them both Pre-ordered now. Might cancel the Wii U, I'm just waiting till I see pics of it

I did like LP1 and 2, 2 was pretty awesome I think, but don't think many people liked it much. Not sure about LP3 though, may pick it up on the cheap.

Gloria, must you brag about your free games all the time? Not even jealous though.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Technically you are not getting it for free Gloria, you put in a lot of time to get those vouchers and you could always apply the credit to something else and get the Ganon statue
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
I don't put in that much time Nox, an hour a day maybe 2 max, I could waste that on facebook easily, so to me it's free.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
2DS is fugly BTW, waste of time, don't like the 3D effect turn it off.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
What makes it worse is it looks like you can't even fold it up.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
It is aimed at kids (Seems perfect for my niece who can't be trusted with anything)
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Might get her it and Animal Crossing for Christmas
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
I suppose if it comes with a case it'd be OK, but I don't trust anything mobile with a screen that doesn't fold up to protect the screen(s), not even phones.

Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-08-28-wii-u-price-cut-announced There's knobs on there think it should be under £100, just wait till they get their shiny new PS4/Xbone and realize they spent half a grand on something that's slightly better than something they've already got.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Should be free to be fair, or Nintendo should pay me to use it.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
No slightly better but I get your point
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Yo wouldn't play it anyway and the people that are saying it should be $100 (£64 I think) aren't even going to buy it no matter what price it is
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Unfortunately Gloria thats gamers for you where the majority of them are self entitled little bitches that think they should be owed stuff just because the don't like/ agree with something.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
I would play it if it had good games, but wouldn't buy a console for Mario, Sonic and Zelda. The only game that was tempting me to buy one was ZombieU, but not enough to buy a console.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Name the kind of games that you would buy a Wii U for
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
It has good games but I suppose that is just down to what you like. For me it was Monster Hunter
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Whitey, you remain a complete philistine.

"just wait till they get their shiny new PS4/Xbone and realize they spent half a grand on something that's slightly better than something they've already got." - Better that than spending several hundred on something a lot worse than what they've got, no? Wii U price cut is a good move imo. Should be deeper, but a step in the right direction is better than sitting and doing nothing. And FYI, I do actually have multiple Eurogamer accounts. The first I forgot the passwaord for after I stopped visiting the site several years ago after the general mood of it's forum turned quite nasty thanks to a handful of particularly venomous posters. I made a new account last year to see if it had improved since. It hadn't... so I no longer visit there. But congrats on being accidentally right about something for once Gloria.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Looks like if I want to get some games out of the backlog before I get the Wii U I can't start Vesperia EX Mode, do another playthrough of Dark Souls or play A Realm Reborn. Better get started. Oh and it turns out the US get the Ganon Edition for $54.99. WTF!

"name the kind of games that you would buy a Wii U for"? Gears of War 4, simple. If I wanted to play the kind of games on Wii, I'd stick to facebook.

Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
You said it about Sly
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Nah just said Sly was a cartoon/kids game. You have to admit though, the Wii U games are not up to the quality of PC/PS/XB games, though it suits some people so good for them I guess, but it's not a console I would buy.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Zombie U, Monster Hunter, Pikmin 3, New Super Mario Bros U, Lego City, Wonderful 101, Luigi U & then you have the ports
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Also Earthbound & the other Eshop titles
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
But all of them have nothing on Dead Rising, Gears of War, Forza, Uncharted, The Last of Us, Mass Effect, Elder Scrolls, Fallout and so on which are not on Wii, so end of the day the choice is very easy to make.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
You are diving into 10 years of IP there, the Wii U is only 1 year old
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Btw Mass Effect 3 is on the Wii U
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
But Dead Rising, Gears of War, Mass Effect, Saints Row and others were some of the first games on 360 in it's launch year. Now look at Wii U, been almost a year now and pretty bad game library with nothing major to shout about.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Yeah but I guarantee it's not as good as the 360 or PS3 version.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Oh actually Mass Effect was out in 2007, thought it was earlier than that to be honest.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Zombie U, Monster Hunter, Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101 Mario/Luigi U. Dead Rising, Saints Row and Gears were released when the 360 was coming up on its first birthday & Mass Effect was released 2 years after launch
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Saw your comment about Mass Effect after I posted
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Ok so just looked at a list of every Wii U game that's out at the moment and there is only like 5 games I would buy, and 4 of them are not exclusive, so no reason for me to buy the console.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I'm not saying that you should buy the console. Anyhoo if you look at the first year of the 360's life, the list is pretty bad
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Agreed it wasn't that great to be fair. I got my 360 In September 2006 just after my birthday when Dead Rising and Saints Row came out, they were the 2 first games I got (may be why I have so much love for them) and also had almost a year backlog to go through so it didn't seem to bad, and Gears was not far around the corner.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I got my first Xbox when Fable 2 and Fallout 3 were released
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Oh and it was a Gears bundle so I got Gears 1 and 2
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
My bad, I got the games mixed up. It was when Gears 2 was released I got a Gears bundle with 2 free games
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
So late 2008 time. I have to admit, still to this day I don't think I've ever had as much fun on a game than I did back on Saints Row 1. It was pretty much the only game I played back then, had so much fun on multiplayer, might have been because I hadn't had much online experience before then because didn't really use MP on PS2 or original Xbox.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Sorry Whitey, you pretend to play fair, but then you say things like "I guarantee it's not as good as the 360 or PS3 version." about Mass Effect on the Wii U when it's a pixel perfect port. Time and time again you rubbish games you don't like, and then pretend to be impartial. It's getting tired now, almost as tired as the game franchises you put on a pedestal.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
As far as I can tell, you have to pay for Wii U DLC for ME3 that is free on other platforms, and some are not even on the Wii U. You also don't have ME1 or 2 on Wii U so you can't get the full experience like you can on PS3 and 360, therefore it's not as good as other platforms. But I guess it's ok for you to criticise games you don't like, but I'm not, ok I understand.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
What DLC do you have to pay for? Also it comes with DLC on the disk & I think it comes with one of the interactive thing where you can make choices. Who really cares anyway, it's not like they made that much difference
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Oh shut up Whitey, I love Mass Effect, but you can't blame Nintendo for not porting over the whole trilogy or charging for DLC when it's fuck all to do with them. The basic game is the same, exactly, if not a little bit better looking, but people like you look for any excuse to put it down because it doesn't have any/enough 'real games' for you.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Last I checked, you don't get the Retaliation, Leviathan, or Omega DLC (which is said to be the best one) on the Wii U. Also, what's the point starting a franchise on the 3rd instalment without playing the first 2? There's basically no point in getting ME3 on the Wii U unless you don't own any other platform.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
If EA ported Mass Effect 1 and 2 to the Wii U, I would buy it but they didn't, hardly the fault of Nintendo
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
I'm not blaming Nintendo at all, I'm saying if you want the best Mass Effect experience, getting it on Wii U is not the best choice.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
& EA wonders why Mass Effect 3 didn't sell well Whitey
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Tell it to EA, don't put it on Nintendo. I mean, hey look, Halo 3, 4 and Reach are shite because the 360 never got a port of 2, or the whole Gears franchise is shite because Epic gave the franchise away, there's some comparable arguments for you.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Is 2 not playable fea Backward Compatibility? Also I think he is talking about how Mass Effect is all about "Your choices shape your game"
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
You seem to twist things, or make things up. I never said ME3 is shit on Wii U, I said it's not as good as 360 or PS3 version, which it's not because you don't get the full experience in Wii U. How is that blaming Nintendo or saying the game is shit?
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
There you go again Whitey "I'm not blaming Nintendo" but you criticize their console for the decisions of third parties.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
And where did I say that was Nintendo's fault? I'm only stating facts that you can't get the full experience playing Mass Effect on Wii U, is that Nintendo's fault? No, but it still doesn't take away the fact it's better to play that game on another console.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Now seems like a good time to bring up Injustice, higher definition and frame rate on Wii U., and don't even pretend it doesn't have DLC.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
And lets not forget the best D pad, essential in a fighting game.
Whitey's avatar

Well Wii U is next-gen, wait till Injustice is on PS4/Xbox One then come back with that. Also it will be on PC soon which will beat all versions of it on console.

The Wii-U is technically next gen, in the way it's the gen after the Wii, but it doesn't have that much more power than a 360 or PS3 in my understanding, I personally think it released a few years too late, if it released in like 09 it may have done better, but it released while the rumors of 'true' next gen were circling, not to mention that the Game pad is way to big for a controller, they could have easily made it PSP sized.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

Have you used the Gamepad Merle?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Also not "technically". It is
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Well, if you only go by hardware specs, then it's not next-gen.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Specs aren't what defines "Next-Gen" it's the time-frame it was released in that defines "Next-Gen"
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

That's why I said if you only go by hardware, because Wii U is like the same league as PS3 specs.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
