Wednesday Chat, February 5


As far as new games go, it looks like the next few months are finally ready to deliver, with a few PS4 and Xbox One titles arriving alongside a whole load of PS3, Wii U, 3DS and Xbox 360 games.


Kicking things off this week is Fable Anniversary, while next week we are greeted with LEGO The Movie the Videogame, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and more. Other titles are to follow too, such as Plant's vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Thief, Earth Defence Force, Rayman Legends and Tales of Symphonia Chronicles. There are more too and that's before we even start to think about March.

Gaming is back, so in this respect, what games are you buying the month of February?

Let's Chat!

Theif has defently peaked my interest, but still not sure about it. Otherwise I'll be getting at least a couple of games in march, such as South Park, Final Fantasy HD and maybe Metal Gear - Ground Zeroes

I'll be purchasing Donkey Kong that's a certain, I was going to get rayman legends but i'm not sure if it's worth double dipping as i got it for the Wii-u. Thieft i'm abit uncertain about i think i'll need to see a few reviews before i make my mind up. Normally i'd just go for it and get it but i'm trying to be a little more picky with what games i buy this year.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
Next month though is metal gear solid ground zeroes Infamous and sniper elite III if it actually releases...

Reports coming out MGS is 2 hours long. An MGS1 speed run, skipping all cutscenes etc was still about 5 hours. Not paying the 30quid to play a glorified demo.

Lightning Returns, Toukiden, Dangenronpa, Tales of Symphonia.

Southpark has peaked my interest a bit more recently, I still don't quite see it as a day one release. Thief will be purchased at some point as I've played all the others in the series, I'd like to give it a bash. In terms of what I am buying in the next 2 months; I have Rayman and Lego the movie in the next two weeks, also have Infamous which is what I am most looking forward to. Have a good day, y'all
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
Well the four for definite I am getting next couple of months are Final Fantasy X HD, South Park, Infamous and Tales of Symphonia. then there is stuff like rayman legends that I may get.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar

Definitely getting Thief, as I am partial to stealth and (possibly) will be picking up MGS: GZ

Well i have to say guys after experiencing the wii-u yesterday i've got to say i'm very suprised it has done as bad as it has! It's alot better than i though it would be. I'm still getting use to the gamepad but it's very comfortable. The only problem is when i'm running on mario the way i'm pushing the analog stick i keep crouching every once in a while but this is something i'm likely to get use to over time, Also i need to remember not to leave the stylus out as i keep losing it.

On a side note is everyones points disappeared mine is saying none and didnt receive any for my Tomb Raider purchase.

Steersy's avatar
Steersy 3 years ago
Joe - Editor. What has happened to everyone's points? Mine have also gone, I have seen the update about the change over on the 7th (which is dissapointing as I'd rather choose to keep my points and apply a larger discount to a title I want to) but the statement also says that existing points will be kept. Would you care to comment, sir?
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
Have you guys seen the new discount system they're doing instead of points?
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
I'm like you steersy i use to save all my points through out the year and use them against Fifa every year.
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
Shows how much attention I pay I didnt know they were changing the discount system
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
It's in the news section under your account :)
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
Cheers Joe found it be interesting to see the level of discounts once its implemented
Steersy's avatar
Steersy 3 years ago
Hopefully be basically the same, around £2.09 for a gold member, £1.60 for a silver.
Akemi no Zero's avatar
Akemi no Zero 3 years ago
This month for me will be Tales Of Symphonia Collectors Edition & Seran Kagura Burst. Yeah my points have gone also, this is very bad & im not an happy bunny about it since i had £32.18 p points saved up & now there vanished even tho I aint used them. This needs to be resolved asap.
Steersy's avatar
Steersy 3 years ago
It's probably just while they implement the changes and the points will be re-instated, however some form of comment or communication would be good customer service!.....Joe????
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Donkey Kong is the week after next, not next week. I'll be buying that, plus the Lego movie game, I was interested in EDF, then I saw the pricing for it, no way am I paying £35 for it, when I got 2017 for half that, and not much more for insect Armageddon, I'll probably pick it up when it inevitably goes on sale after a few weeks. Interested in South Park too, but no way am I giving Ubisoft any money, so I'll wait and pick it up cheap second hand.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
My points have disappeared too, I didn't have many, but they've still gone :(
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
Steersy you have to relise Joe is just the editor he isn't involved in customer service or the day to day running of Shopto.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
Also the news section of the site is a minority of the people who use shopto if they're going to make an announcement odds are it'll be on facebook/twitter where the majority of the customers follow i imagine. Well that's what i'd do as i think it'd make more sense.

I love the Nintendo eshop promotions and rewards, downloaded Giana Sisters last night for the princely sum of £3.68 :) Would have been 19p if I hadn't bought Boulder Dash last week ;)
Steersy's avatar
Steersy 3 years ago
Understood Toots, I've had my eyes peeled on the social media networks and there hasn't been anything on there about the missing points. The only reason I mentioned him, is that as the editor I assume he reads our posts and can pass on our concerns to the customer service team. I do a similar job and if you are the front face, then people will address their concerns to you regardless of your job remit
Akemi no Zero's avatar
Akemi no Zero 3 years ago
Giana Sisters is an great game i got it free on PlayStation + one of my favourite arcade games of last year. Also at joe toots i agree with you but they should still update there site so there loyal customers on here know what's going on about there missing points. Also not everyone use's social media you know.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
akemi why not send a ticket in ? that'll get you an answer..
Akemi no Zero's avatar
Akemi no Zero 3 years ago
@ Toots if i don't receive my points back in 24hrs i will send them an ticket. But i wont now coz i bet they have been flooded with tickets about the problem already so ill give the tech team time to sort it out & fix the problem first understand?

I had OVER 9000 points and they have gone walkies. In other news my Orders for Feb are the same as Akemi's, I cancelled Sorcery Saga last night cos a certain rainforest had it for £5 cheaper

I had ZERO points anyway as used them all up and stuff I did buy did not qualify for points, even games. However I went to buy a game about 1am and I ended up with £300,000 worth points - Kerching! The site became unresponsive and when it came back all the points were gone. It was obviously a major error and would not have been able to keep those points but if you had gotten £300,000 worth of points legitimately what would you buy? I would have gotten a PS4, at least 10 Xbox 360s for backup, a PS Vita, and all the latest games being released in Feb / March. As I am now not rich and there are loads of games coming, plus there is also Everquest Next Landmark if you want to buy that and get into the Alpha, I will be buying Lego Movie on Xbox 360 not Xbox ONE, to save a tenner, I will also get Lightning Returns on 360 and getting Fable Anniversary this week, but will probably get Thief on Xbox ONE though. I plan on getting Donkey Kong, but may not do so on release day, and wait for another drought in releases

Probably because there werent many made I have one think Nox has it as well and its easier to pay that then buy say 20 odd games for the nintendo points
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
put it this way Joe that figure was 7000 points i think which would mean you needed to buy 28 games so even if you got them all on sale for £10 thats still £280 you had to spend

34215 as it turns out. These were all surveys from digital purchases, got 250 stars for buying the digital version of boulder dash for £2.46.

Dead's avatar

Yep Bindania, it's usually only 50 stars a go, but as Boulder Dash was a retail game too it was the full 250. Yep Tootell, been collecting stars since they started doing them at Gamecube launch.
