Played a load of Tropical Freeze over the weekend, beautiful game and amazingly well designed, possibly the best in the DKC series yet.

Played through the rest of Lego the Movie, weakest one since Indy 2. There needs to be some progression in the series as it's getting stale now. On a separate note, I got some advice on the PS4 corrupting saves from a forum; Before launching any title, upload your latest save to the cloud (as long as you have PSPlus membership) and at least you are protected from losing your progress up to that point, also recommend dropping out once an hour to upload new save file to minimise hair lose. Gloria, the DKC and Mario games are the one thing I miss from the last time I had a Nintendo machine, glad you are enjoying them

Agree on the Lego movie game Steersy, it's definitely a step backwards for the franchise, and you should pick yourself up a Wii U some time, probably get one for £200 with a game if you shop around now, and there's some fabulous exclusive games for it, 3D World, Tropical Freeze and the imminent MK8 alone make it a worthwhile purchase.

I was keeping myself entertained with Fifa 14, even though I had it on the 2 button beginner setting. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. No AC this weekend

Hope you feel better soon mate. Some gaming is apparently a good cure. Now I have had a little bit of practice, will take you on (and probably lose badly) at Fifa

Got more, and less, gaming done than I thought this weekend. Went out Friday night and planned to spend Saturday day flitting between writing, Lightning Returns, and listening to football. I ended up staying in bed until nearly 12 and so I went round to my parent's early (step brother's 40th that evening) and listened to the games whilst playing Football Manager on the laptop (no writing or other gaming done). Spent the rest of the evening entertaining 8 year olds which has put me off children for life. Sunday I managed to get 2,000 words down and some more Football Manger played. Lightning is looking at me reproachfully from the box on the living room floor :/ Hope you all had a good weekend, and that you're feeling better soon, Joe

I played some PSO on the gamecube the other day but apart from that it has been Lightning returns and gave the Wildstar beta a go.

You got me excited for a second there, sounds crap though, I don't want to see what's happened with their kid, I want the crew of Moya doing what they do best.
Zombieflamingo's avatar

From what it sounds like they will still be in it, but I do agree I don't want teenage drama in my sci fi.
Zombieflamingo's avatar

They are also making another Heroes mini series.
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
Ai, potentially a good thing with the Heroes mini series. The show had a lot of potential before it fell crippled to its own success. Let's hope they keep it nice and simple, instead of trying to give each character their own story and plot to follow, and somehow trying to weave it all into one big narrative.

As long as Claire is not in it I will be happy, she was the worst character in it. Completely new characters would be fine. There was a rumour last year that apparently Microsoft were going to be involved in doing this but I guess not then.

Doubt it, would have been more interested in the Blakes 7 remake, but that's been cancelled as far as I can tell.

@JOE yeah seen them last week looking forward to the challenge , think i might be able to get them the run through with no kills will be tough and hard to resist if u get caught
Light Heavensword's avatar

To all i wanted to ask, what do you want Naughty Dog's next game to be? A sequel to the Last Of Us (The Last Of Us 2) or a new Jak and Daxter (Jak 4), for me The Last Of Us 2 isn't needed, it's special on its own and i can't see how they can continue the series especially with the Ellie DLC that just came out which was a prequel. Jak and Daxter was absent last generation and in a world where their are more shooters nowadays and less Platformers especially on PlayStation apart from Nintendo, Jak and Daxter really needs to make a comeback, many people have been waiting for years nearly a decade for a new game and it's the perfect time when PS4 doesn't have a lot of games at the moment. http://www.gamespot.com/articles/the-last-of-us-2-is-a-50-50-chance/1100-6417906/
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
They can do a sequel to the Last Of Us but it would need to be involving different characters. To follow on with the same characters, imho, would be a mistake. The only exception could possibly be with Ellie being a lot older. I'd like to see how the world would change in the future, how the zombie fungus evolves, how mankind copes with the continued threat of extinction. So I wouldn't mind there being a sequel, without necessarily *wanting* there to be a sequel. However, I've never played a Jak and Daxter game to want a sequel.

I need some info about Diablo3 reaper of souls if anyone can help. I own Diablo3 on PS3 on disc but want the expansion pack on PS4. Is that possible or do you have to own the PS4 disc version aswell? Also I can't uderstand the pricing. The PC expansion pack is £30, which is almost the price of the full game on PS3. Going on usual price differences from PC to console this would make the console version £40-£50! That's more than I paid for the full game even though reaper of souls is only an expansion pack which requires you to own the full game already. How can Blizzard justify that and how is it all going to work with regards to compatibility with all the different versions? I've been trying to contact Blizzard but they don't have an email contact address that I can find. Any help and clarification would be appreciated. Thanks.
Zombieflamingo's avatar

As far as I know the PS4 version is Diablo 3 + the reaper of souls expansion. Also I am sure I read somewhere that you can do a one time transfer of characters over.

I have been a bad boy but it turns out I can't have a laugh sending Funny pictures to my mates without one of them reporting me! On the bright side I can make a new account and level to 110 again on battlefield :D

Light Heavensword's avatar
Light Heavensword 3 years ago
The only way they could do a sequel is with new characters to be honest, they've already just done a prequel, their are still things that could be told in The Last Of Us universe. For me i don't really think their should be one as i can't see how they could top the first game. Kaysar if you've never played a Jak game you can always get the HD Trilogy for cheap now or you can get it of the PS Store. It's one of my best games.
Light Heavensword's avatar
Light Heavensword 3 years ago
Joe they should do a new series and a new Jak and Daxter and why get banned? I've never been banned :P

I may give it a look in. Cash in tight and with uni work, work work, and writing work all going on, I rarely have time to game as it is at the moment. I literally spend each Christmas period (when I have breaks from the first two) binge gaming and catching up on what I've missed. But I'll be sure to give it a look in if it's cheap enough
Light Heavensword's avatar

Ah i see, it was free on the PS Store for Plus members back in September i think if you are one. You might have missed it unfortunately..

Just watched TotalBiscuit's WTF is Thief & I got to say that all my fears I had for the game are almost gone. The fact that the PC Port is top notch and you can customize the difficulty has sold me on the game

Already have my copy paid for Dark. I wonder, did these 'critics' that complained about the stealth aspect, try plying the game on Iron Man setting or just skip playthrough? I'm guessing no IM setting

agree they are only opinions payed off mine today i to are looking forward to turning off all the hud and stuff and just taking my time every one is trying to compare it to dishonered but i was sold on day one
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
You and me both, not turning everything off though, I'm not that mad! Did you get yours at the original price or the new one. I never liked the look of Dishonoured anyway
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

You guys do know you can make some of your HUD fade out right? Personally I like having Fade more than no HUD

Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
I got mine at full price, but I know I'll get a difference refund (that can go with points for Rayman). 'Dave' setting for me first (easy) then have a go at proper stealth

I've been playing Fable Anniversary, and loads of games being released this week - Thief, Castlevania and Tales of Symphonia. I am torn whether to get the collectors edition or standard, I am leaning more on standard atm, but could get collectors for £70 and then sell on Amazon for £180! Then buy standard version, but if it does not sell for much more than £70 then will be a load of palava, and would have been better off going for standard.
