Monday Chat, November 25


It's PS4 launch week, although since it's still a few days before everyone actually gets their hands on one, what we want to know is how have you been enjoying your Xbox One this weekend.

What features do you love the most? What do you think of the new Kinect, how do the voice commands work for you, and finally Is there any any improvements you would make based on your experience so far?

We'll be bringing you plenty of coverage for Xbox One this week, mainly in the form of reviews but also some video streaming. In fact our coverage has already started here (Does Kinect Understand Scottish?) here (Xbox One Unboxed), here (Xbox One First Impressions) and here (Ryse: Son of Rome Review).

Let's Chat!

Had a Zelda weekend mainly. Alternating between Link Between Worlds (almost done.) and Wind Waker (still fantastic. Just not getting far due to sidequests.) Also started and gave up once again on Kingdoms of Amalur. I wanna like it so much but....its just so boring

Kingdoms is a good game but I feel that it is kinda overwhelming

Not got me one of them fancy Xboxes, but I did end up finally getting into Football Manger. Six months in and looking pretty at the top of the table and found a very fluid formation that suits the players down to the ground. Otherwise, a weekend of clubbing and visiting my nan for her birthday. News for today, I'm off on a 2nd date this evening ;-)

Aha, I see what you did there ;-) We're doing the bog standard cinema date. We went to Blackpool zoo for out first date but she wants to see the new Thor film so there we shall go. We're also going to grab a bite to eat beforehand, hopefully.

ohh she infact my bad, cinema date ohhhh not a good idea! you can't really talk and get to know each other, suppose it's not so bad being a second date but i'd never go there for a first date!

We are eating beforehand, but I do agree; not really a way to get to know someone. However, it is the 2nd date and we have been talking daily for nearly three weeks now. So we do know each other surprisingly well. So fingers crossed she likes me enough to want a 3rd

@Kaysar She wants to see Thor? She's a keeper (not of the goal variety)
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
Oh don't I know it. She nearly out geeks me and she certainly out games me. She's also pretty too, which is an added bonus. I'm not overly sure what it is she sees in me but I'm not complaining.

I got one of those and married her last year. She 100% out geeks me too. Think of it like this; Christmas and birthday presents will be easy, just buy her what ever geeky thing you'd want for yourself....in pink.

Well it was her birthday a few days before our first date, so I picked her up a Thor Lego man (as she collects Lego). Pretty sure that alone is the reason I got a 2nd date ;-)

Played some Link between Worlds over the weekend, great game, love what they've done with it this time. Spent Saturday mostly watching Doctor Who, mainly classic DVDs to offset the awfulness of the crappy show the BBC made. Also finished off the story of Marvel Lego, was OK, but unlocking Galactus is so disappointing, I really wanted him to be full size so I could walk over the city like in an old Godzilla movie.

I've figured out Gloria anthony is your second account as you can't cope with not arguing with someone during the day you argue with yourself.

Funny that, I thought Anthony was your second account Tootell.

Yeah, they're both quite a step up from £4.99 including delivery :/ And I will eventually pick up Link between Worlds. When I eventually finish Pokemon, and eventually finish GTA....

games and blu rays i have ordered from amazon have never turned up on release date which is dissapointing as i pay for prime for a reason.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
They do first class guaranteed for delivery on release date free without Prime, don't see the point in paying for it.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
Games and blu rays are litterally around just 10% of stuff i order off amazon.

PSN prices for games released and worse then Xbox. All EA games are £62.99 will the rest of the big games range from £52.99 to £59.99 if they want people to go digital both consoles have a lot to do.

Yeah the PSN prices are terrible at least the first party xbox one games are lower but I still do not see me buying them. Also do not understand why prices from the EA games very so much between the PS4 and one.
Kaysar's avatar

There was an article about PSN prices before which pointed out how we in the UK are getting screwed. Games in the US are priced at $59.99 where as here they're £62.99. Working out at £37 and $102 when you go off currency exchange. Seems a bit of a high discrepancy to be explained away by fluctuating markets...
