Monday Chat: March 3, 2014


It's Monday, so what did you get up to over the weekend? What games did you play.



We've been checking out all sorts this weekend and therefore have plenty of reviews on the way, for titles such as Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition, South Park, Pacman, Dark Souls 2 and more. But for know we'd like to know what games you are enjoying as February comes to a close.

So, Let's Chat!

By the way, when do the South Park reviews go live? I'm interested how it's turned out after some positive previews

Only really played yesterday. Playing Thief on PS4, oh dear God that stupid staircase puzzle. Ploughing through it, good fun if slightly flawed. It just doesn't feel "next gen" though, nothing done here that couldn't happen on the PS3/360 just with a lick of paint.

Been playing fifa all weekend. I've got a mate on PSN who absolutely hates thief so it has put me off getting it.

Toots, I'd say it's pretty old school in feel. If you played any of the original two Thief games you'll know what to expect. I imagine a fair few people won't "get" it as it's a bit slower paced. Personally one play through and a cheeky trade in for me.

Thief PS4 mostly - liking the SteamPunk vibe, not loving the restrictive gameplay but enough there to warrant at least one playthrough... Also getting to grips with Elder Scrolls Online Beta - that could become a life-eater when it jumps over to PS4! Really didn't like Basement Crawl though, deleted it already :/ but anticipating InFamous Second Son in a big way!!

I was playing Assassin's Creed IV. Finished the single player mode. I liked it a lot, but I feel like the present day story is not really needed. It just spoils the tempo. There was a rating system for the memory missions (the ones with Edward Kenway), which is cool, but why didn't they add a rating system for the present day missions :)

I got some Final Fantasy XIV, Elder Scrolls Beta and Lords of Shadow 2 in. Now I just wait on South Park to get here.

I spent the weekend playing Killzone Mercenary. I've finished the game, just been playing through the precision, covert, and demolition contracts. I've recently gone back to the Vita as I have lots of games on it that I haven't played yet.

I could never get into assassins creed something just didn't click.

Steersy this is the 4th Thief game. Didn't get a whole lot of gaming done. I played Kagura Burst but I spend most of my time watching my Dog mope around since his pal died on Saturday night

Finished off my Quantum Leap box set over the weekend, the last series was a bit dark with serial killers, vampires and evil leapers. Also knocked out a few more levels of Tropical Freeze, getting near the end on it now, and some levels are taking up to an hour to get through, luckily they're very generous with extra lives so still not had a game over screen despite wasting up to 50 lives on some levels. Still got a ton of collectibles and secrets to do on it, so that should last me for a while.

No, you're right Tootell, I am pretty bad now. Thirty years ago I was a local legend, held the high scores on almost every machine in my local arcade, and was unbeaten in my computer club, I even held my own against the great Jeff Minter once or twice. Time has not been kind though, old age and arthritis have slowed me down, I'm not bad bad though, and can still teach the young whippersnappers a thing or two when I do take it online.

I can imagine you use alot of intimidation tactics to scare your opponent into submission Gloria. Theres a few wii-U games on happy hour today.

Just checked, already have Zombi U, and couldn't care less about AC.
JoeToots's avatar

Is zombi U worth a go Nox keeps nagging at me to pick it up but it puts me off with it being a launch title.
Bindiana's avatar

Ha Ha yes Billy Mitchell is a dick did like how serious everyone took it.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

If AC is a good price I might pick the Wii U version up & since I don't have my ZombiU anymore I might get that as well (If it is cheaper than what Amazon have it for right now)
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Zombi U is pretty good actually, not the prettiest game, but it's serious hardcore survival horror, well worth a go, specially for under a tenner. Video games was a serious business back in the 80s Bindania ;)

If you do get it then make sure to plug some Headphones into the Gamepad

It isn't really horror, it is more like suspense

has anybody else been getting the ps4 error E-82204301 when trying to create a party because it seems to be a wide scale problem which started over the weekend but theres been no official word from sony..

@ stooT ... Not sure the exact error code but I had a few over the weekend, weird thing is it would let me start a party but couldn't invite anyone in. My main issue was on Friday night playing Warframe I got the CE-34878-0 code, reset the console, when I signed back in I found that not only Warframe was corrupt but also my Thief and LEGO Movie saves had corrupted. I spoke to Sony Support today, they ran through a few possible fixes, downloaded my backup saves from their cloud service but somehow it backup the corrupted files for those 3 games so lost all 3 games and no-way I'm starting them again. To be fair Sony support were really helpful, told me it wasn't a hardware problem, something to do with the software and "Sony are aware of the problem" hopefully they sort it soon as don't really fancy playing anything now just incase it happens again :-/

heard a fair few times about the save corrupting issues. only real solution is cloud saving aswell as local, you should all have PS+ so that shouldn't be a problem :P

Definite lack of gaming this weekend, as had to go to north London to pick up a new mobility scooter (not for me). Only managed to get a few games in on Fifa. Tried my luck against Toots - and got battered.

Thanks for the heads up on that, might steer clear of the party feature for now(not that i use it much anyway). Went back and finished Shadow Fall over the weekend, played on highest difficulty so was brutally hard at times. At one point you're with a small group defending yourselves against a mini army, had to be quick and decisive while getting the best out of the Owl's abilities to survive, was so hard it took me nearly two hours to get past it at which point I slid across the living room floor on my knees with my arms in the air :) Not the best game in the world but thanks to next gen power the SP was breathtaking at times

There is nothing wrong with being a geek. I used to have the NES styled GBA but that's all the branded consoles. I have the Halo 4 360 controller which is pretty cool and just got the Titanfall one through on saturday which actually reminds me more of a Mass Effect cerberus style. Have been playing quite a bit of plants vs zombies at the weekend and I must say it is pretty fun though could really do with more maps. Also played a bit more of lightning returns and enjoying so much better than XIII-2. It feels strange when you hunt monster to extinction and can no longer fight them again.

not really got much gaming done the weekend , pre ordered dark souls black armor edition and the collectors hard back guide but un sure at the moment did not get that far in to dark souls 1 but did give up easy not sure the 2nd will change that
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
The second one is a lot more clear on what is going on around you but still doesn't hold your hand, if you decide to give it another go we could engage in some Jolly Cooperation
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 3 years ago
yeah still think i will get it and give it a go the guide should help i did like souls 1 but gave in to easy i know you need patience and learn how to attack prob pick up the souls 1 again as i have the guide to that aswell

thinking of going with the temple knight first a good tank class with high hp points , like to use a character with good armour for defense with a good sword and shield , duel wielding two swords seems bad with no defense

The classes are just Stat Points & Starting Gear, it doesn't really matter what you choose
