Monday Chat - October 28th


It's the last Monday in October and we're getting ever closer the release of the new next generation consoles. Joe's off this week and left it in my (Colin!) hands once again. 

So, how have you been? 
Been playing much over the weekend? Anyone pick up Batman: Arkham Origins? 
What games will you be picking up with the PS4/Xbox One?
Who's coming along to the Xbox One event tomorrow?

Just a note, there won't be too much news going up today, as I'm away covering an Xbox One Mountain Dew event in London. Sightings of Doritos are unconfirmed at this stage. We should have some great video content up this week from a good few events.

Played some Deus Ex over the weekend, definitely the definitive version on Wii U, gamepad functionality and Miiverse integration is excellent, and the boss battles aren't quite as frustrating as they were originally. Also did the Enter the Dominatrix DLC for SR4, was alright, not as good as I had hoped though, and I wasn't keen on the 'behind the scenes/making of' approach they took with it, hopefully they won't be doing that with the next DLC. Knocked out a few more levels of Mighty Switch Force 2 too, great game, love the combination of platforming and puzzles.

Watched the new dashboard video of the xbox one hopefully you will get it up on here soon. I have to say I was pretty amazed cant wait till 22nd (hopefully 21st shopto :-) ), obviously the hype is getting to a lot of people 8/10 of the top preorders are to do with xbox one.

All my spare gaming time has been spent on the wonderful pokemon x what an ace game it has me hooked that's for sure. Only things i will be picking up will be naruto storm 3: Full Burst whenever the ps3 version gets released here in the uk even know it should of been released last week :I & the guided fate paradox limited edition that's all for me this month. Then nothing for awhile apart from the odd few anime box sets.

I played the Dark Souls 2 beta again yesterday, this time with my pants off as I was going to be focusing only on PVP. Needless to say I was disappointed as the invasions and summoning system was down for the whole duration of the network test. Still had a lot of fun though, it makes Dark Souls 1 feel outdated in comparison.

That reminds me, squeezed in a few hours of Pokemon too, clobbered another gym leader and got my electric badge ;)

I went to play the dark souls beta but did not realise it was only at set times. I am just up to the elite four in pokemon x now just need to do some training.

I cant wait to go to the pokemon league later today after i super trained my glaceon fully. But like i said pokemon x rules that's for sure very great improvement that's for sure. I hope they add some form of dlc for x & y later next year would be sweet.

Would you say it's as good as Asylum?
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 3 years ago
story is great plenty off twists , but it just feels a copy of Arkham city and the combat just feels slower than the other games not as fluid , the difficulty seems ramped up aswell even on normal the enemys are really tough , would say its worth playing for the story but not as good as the other games

On Saturday I played a bit of Human Revolution (& got stick from Gloria for no using it much) then during the night I took part in watching Peeve's stream and playing Demon Souls. (4pm-2am) Got up about half 7 and stuck on Peeve's stream and the Network Test, but it turns out that Namco messed up the EU server and people in NA couldn't even log on.

I played Arkham Origins at friend's house. I like it a lot :) I liked how the story is related to the New 52 Batman comics (especially with #24 from the Zero Year arc). On the other side I also started playing Castlevania Lords of Shadow. I like it so far. :)

I finished of Arkham Origins yesterday. There's just too much frame rate drops, the story is the best out of all the Arkham games imo. The game also felt harder than City for some reason and was just the same as City. I will return it soon i will be getting a PS4 on the 29th with 5 games. I'm on holiday I might check out the Xbox One event, concerning Dark Souls 1 and 2 that game has nothing on Jak 2 in terms of difficulty i had a tougher time on Jak 2 than I did Dark Souls and Demon Souls.

I made a start on Infamous 2 at the weekend. For my PS4 console have the killzone bundle and will get Knack and then maybe FIFA then see if there are any bargains in the January sales. Nox you had any luck with Tales pre order yet?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Nope but I didn't even look yesterday, spend most of Sunday editing my Dark Souls 2 footage. After I upload part 2 as unlisted I'm going to ask Namco if I can make them public cos even though everyone else is uploading stuff it is better to be safe than sorry
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

Tbh I would have thought the Tales Pre-orders would have went live after the MCM Expo but that makes too much sense

This weekend, I have been mostly learning, to fly! Nah, managed to get another gym badge and caught the Y legendary pokemon (stupidly easy). Otherwise, I realised Plants Vs Zombies 2 was available on Android so when the 3DS was charging I was on that. Otherwise it was a typical weekend. In that I slept too much and still feel tired, and come 1am Saturday morning I was still dancing away to dubstep, rock, 50s swing, and metal. Yeah, the club I frequent plays pretty much anything. I wonder if that's the reason I'm so tired come Monday? ;-)

I'm not even bothered about next gen, i think people are bigging it up to much and when it comes around itll just be like 'ohh is that it' GTA all over again.
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar

does any one know if u get points when you pre pay for orders or do you get them after its been dispatched , live support seems to have gone
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
You get the points after the item has been dispatched, Kratos 20. I prepaid for pokemon and didn't get the points until after it was sent. Also, bear in mind, you can't apply points to an item if you pre pay for it (hence why my PS4 hasn't been paid for yet)

wait till we are on launch day JOE i think it will be hard to resist haha , lol
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 3 years ago
ok thanks cause i just pre paid cod ghosts and not got any points for it
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
Yeah, I'm thinking of swapping Battlefield for COD. Just because I hear COD may have split screen whereas I know Battlefield doesn't. I'm going to wait until it is released and I can physically check the back of a copy to be sure.

JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
Its just like you hyping over GTA for months and months and selling it after a week. plus whats 'anyway you wont have anything i dont already have ordered' suppose to mean do you think its a competition? the only games im intrested in are watch dogs and next gen fifa but well watch dogs isn't going to be out at release.

I have a feeling after the initial wow factor has worn off a lot of people are going to be a bit underwhelmed and/or disappointed with their next gen consoles.

anyone know what games are playable at this Xbox One event? I'm close to going, but if it's just a EA f+++fest then I wont bother. I'm hoping Dead Rising 3 will be playable

JOE nothings a competition just trying to make a point when u used to message me on psn it was i am going to get ps4 battlefield and cod and all the stuff , then it was im cancelling and getting a next gen wii u , back to getting a ps4 with watch dogs just saying what i used to hear off u , thats why i took u off my profile and as to hyping im afraid every one in the world will be dissapointed then to be honest . lets just leave it at that.
