Friday Chat - Nov 1st


It's November 1, which means less than a couple of months until Xmas and 3-4 weeks until you finally get your new console of choice. So are you excited?

Also, it's the weekend. So what are you up to this weekend? What games are grabbing your attention? Assassin's Creed? Battlefield 4? Sometime else?

Let's Chat!

Excitement is ebbing for the new gen, but only because it's seeming to drag the closer to the release date we get ;-) Otherwise I have a jam packed weekend. Out tonight for a Hallowe'en party (going as Michael Myers), Saturday will be spent in Lancaster for a friend's birthday which will include a firework display, and then Sunday I have a date. So sad to say, little gaming will be involved.

November means new Zelda and new Mario, screw the other consoles. this weekend I will hopefully finish off Deus Ex so I can get back to Wind Waker.

Just found out Nintendo is removing Spotpass from Swapnote. This makes me deeply sad. I really hope there is a big backlash and they change their minds, Swapnote was the funnest thing on the 3DS.

Never tried swapnote, only heard about it the other day and still don't know what it is.

I take that back, it's the Nintendo Letterbox, yep I use that now and again, shame they are effectively scrapping it.

Yeah, sorry, I have always called it Swapnote as most of my friends are American. I hope it means 3DS Miiverse is coming sooner than expected.

Bit of news South Park has been delayed to March now :( starting to worry about it now seeing as it was supposed to be nearly ready when Ubisoft bought it.

Probably takes a while to cut out half the game for DLC and make the remainder coherent enough to sell on its own.

I have 4 games on rent from Blockbuster plus one from Boomerang atm and plan on playing through them to send them back. I just noticed that Blockbuster (remaining retails stores at least, are closing down), The online rental service seems to be going still but the turnaround is getting worse by the day. I do not like Boomerang either, so will probably cancel them and have no rental services to choose from. My rentals built up as have been busy playing the latest games that qualify for the Grab a Game offer on Xbox Rewards which ended yesterday, which as left a bad taste in my mouth, as trying to play 10 hours of Batman / WRC 4 / Assassins Creed 4 / TMNT within 6 days or less has not been easy. They give you 30 days to play the games but then these last few games do not get that. I am now getting a bad feeling about next gen, and may not even get Xbox ONE -wait for all the feedback and see what Sony and MS are doing in a years time, and focus on current gen plus Wii U. If I do not get Xbox ONE, then I may get the Zelda 3DS XL instead plus all the Nintendo games I have postponed getting to put money aside for the Xbox ONE (and PS4 before Watch Dogs and Drive Club got delayed).

Did not win a Dark Souls t-shirt and my Wii Fit U just called me a fat-ass. What a sad day.

I won the Football Manager competition which ShopTo ran. Well, I think they did, they may have actually hosted it on behalf of Sega as they got in touch with me. They're sending me a Man City shirt, which is nice.

Well done Nox. I won a Skyrim hat on a Twitter competition once and I don't even like Skyrim.

Spoke to a ShopTo rep on Twitter and apparently it is correct that the COD PS4 game is being processed. It was an Activision decision to have the game released 3 weeks before the console...
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

They want to break the Day 1 sales record of GTA V, that is why Shopto is stocking it

Ai, the rep did mention it could be for "chart" reasons.

I decided to go for COD on the 360 amazon are doing a dual license digital copy for £60 so I went for that as I have a couple of friends I play it with that are not upgrading to the xbox one straight away so it will be good to play with them on that. For this weekend I will be playing some more Batman and GTA online probably have some pokemon in there as well. The only online competition I won was one years ago on HMV when Gears of War just came it and it was a little Marcus Fenix statue.

Competition prizes? Had so many it's hard to keep track, a couple of comment to win and review competitions from shopto, free copy of Rayman Legends, and an N-Gage are the main gaming ones, others include a couple of BBQs, a hamper of Spam and Spam branded merchandise, several large boxes of Kettle Chips, a night out at a haunted house last Halloween and a Cabin in the Woods goody bag, 6 packs of Rice Krispies Squares, a few books and a glass with a light in it, a graphic novel and T-shirt with the cover printed on it, and a pair of Spock ears. There's probably more, those are just the ones I can remember off the top of my head.
