Friday Chat, October 18


It's Friday, which means two days of gaming and for most of us, no work. So what are you up to this weekend? What games are grabbing your attention?

It's only around five more weekend's until the first next generation console will be here, with the other following hot on its heels the weekend after. So it's probably best that you tackle that back catalogue before they arrive. So is that what you'll be doing? 

Let's Chat!

I will be playing Tomb Raider (I know a little bit old). I got it on demand during the big sale on XBL a few months back. I like it so far :)

Hoping to finish Ni No Kuni this weekend and then will probably move onto Tomb Raider - it's been in my backlog of games for ages as my mate lent it to me months ago after she completed it and it's just been sat there in my pile of games to play so really ought to crack on with it and give it back. Other than that still playing Rayman - completed the main worlds last night (though not got all the teenies) so need to start working on the origins levels.

still haven't made a decision re: Pirate Warriors 1 or 2. Might just wait till romance dawn comes out and play that instead. Today's my last day at work (whoop!) before I go on maternity leave so plan to spend my leave before the baby comes gaming and watching box sets.. just haven't decided which ones yet.

also just been reading reviews for Sonic Lost World. Ouch! Shame really, sounds like they tried to make a super mario galaxy style game (which I'm all for) but without the actual skill to do it

iMerle iDixon's avatar
iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
Did you use your masterball on it?
Im Going Space's avatar
Im Going Space 3 years ago
dusk ball mate. theyre the best balls. i play mostly late, so its always dark, theat + caves or buildings puts the catch rate through the roof.
iMerle iDixon's avatar
iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
I used an ultra ball, I was just asking as you have to catch it, if it faints you get another try, so it would be a waste of the master ball. I usually save my master ball just in case I come across an exploding shiny, but I used it on Mewtwo as soon as I saw it use recover I thought forget this.
iMerle iDixon's avatar
iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
I wonder if some thing happens if you get all three legendary Birds, like when you got all the regis.

Not bothered about the bad Sonic reviews,if the likes of IGN don't like it then it's got to be doing something right in my books.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

I have watched a few video reviews and it seems like most of the complaints are just people being bad at the game

Samka's avatar
Samka 3 years ago
to be fair, it's not just IGN or just a handful of sites rating it very low, its getting pretty bad reviews across the board. the general gist seems to be 'good idea, bad execution'. still at least it means it'll be bargain bin fodder by the time I get round to getting a wii u, which is no bad thing from my perspective.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
Think its time i change my picture
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
The thing is alot of peoples opinions differ to them of reviewers. i remember operation flashpoint dragon rising got bad reviews but i loved that game!
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
'Good idea, Bad execution'. There is another game like that and it's called Alpha Protocol which is a great game
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Plus I look more at who is reviewing it not at what website they work for
Samka's avatar
Samka 3 years ago
All fair points, and games that rate extremely highly can be a massive let down (example: Bioshock Infinite, in my opinion). But having blind faith in a game before playing it is not much better than blindly trusting a review...
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
I agreee with Bioshock infinite.

Very angry right now, just checked my bank and Shopto have charged me twice for the 3ds I bought, which has put me in debit and ruined my credit score, going to ring them now and try to sort it out.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Maybe you can get a free PS4 out of it :)
JoeToots's avatar

Nox thats why you send me yours ;)
iMerle iDixon's avatar
iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
On hold, never had this problem anywhere else, I used my reward points and it charged me at full price and the reduced price.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
Nox, just watched the gameplay for sonic and its definatly the sort of game i'd play :P
iMerle iDixon's avatar
iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
Well got the refund, but apparently they can't give me any compensation, even though they ruined my credit score, I don't think I'll be using here again.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
mistakes happen iMerle iDixon
iMerle iDixon's avatar
iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
Yes mistakes happen, but this could potentially be held against me in the future when I apply for a loan, to buy a house or car, if someone is given a PS4 over a misunderstanding I think I deserve something for having a permanent blemish on my record.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
Yes i know its not on but ranting here isn't going to achieve anything you would of been better off ranting on the phone.
iMerle iDixon's avatar
iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
I did they just said they couldn't do anything, they don't give compensation at all (which is a lie)
iMerle iDixon's avatar

That PS4 stunt was always going to come back and haunt them any time anyone gets a problem now they are going to bring that up hoping to get something free. In my eyes what they have done to you is a lot worse then what they have done to that other guy.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
lets start a petition iMerle iDixon free ps4!
iMerle iDixon's avatar
iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
Thank You, I'm not even saying I want a free PS4, I just want an apology and some credit, towards one.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
should of asked to speak to there supervisor, and then his superior.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I was joking about the PS4 but Shopto really need to do something since they messed up. This is worse than the other incident
iMerle iDixon's avatar
iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
I said can you put me through to someone else who could get me something and the guy said he was the only one there...
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
One hand they cancel someones account so he lost his PS4 Pre-order and on the other they messed up someones credit score. I know what one is worse
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I know the Boss sometimes is on the Shopto Twitter page so you could try there.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
what they should of done is refunded you and also gave you the equivelent in credit for messing up.
iMerle iDixon's avatar
iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
It knocked me under by about £100, which isn't much when you compare to the price of a house or a car, but it's still a blemish on my record.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Go have a rant on Twitter at them but make sure to Pre-order a PS4 first
iMerle iDixon's avatar
iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
I've had a PS4 ordered since may, it's now the only thing I have preordered, I've canceled everything else, if it wasn't for the high demand that would be getting canceled as well.

JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
i think its been a misunderstanding
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
was basically this That's right. The payment for this order was never fully completed, however we asked your bank to reserve the amount of the order total for our use. This is done so that we know that when we try to take the money, that it will definitely be there. As the order has been cancelled, we are no longer requesting this 'authorisatation' of the funds. Control of the authorisation however, lies with your bank. This money will certainly be released automatically bank onto your available card balance. How long this takes varies depending on the bank. If you want to speed up the process, the only option would be to give your bank a call, and ask them to release the funds.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
That is standard Tootell

I'm looking around to see if anywhere can still guarantee the PS4 for launch, if they can then that's getting canceled as well, but I'm going to give shopto until Tuesday to come up with something, if they don't I'm out.

I'd put an order in on Amazon and other sites. That way if one does become available, you can jump on. If not, you can cancel.
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
yeah would guess there have been a few cancellations recently due to the announced delays so could be worth giving a couple retailers a ring and seeing if you get lucky.
iMerle iDixon's avatar
iMerle iDixon 3 years ago
The saddest part is I've spent thousands here, and recommended the site to others who have probably also spent a lot here, yet they essentially turn around and say tough luck to me. :(
iMerle iDixon's avatar

There are a few independent stores near me which aren't all that popular, I'll ask around them if Shopto don't come through by Tuesday.
