Tuesday Chat: May 20


It's Tuesday and news is very quiet at the moment, however, at last we are getting some games.


Wolfenstein arrives today, while Watch Dogs hits next Tuesday, both of which arrive on PS4, Xbox One and older platforms. After that on the Friday it's Mario Kart 8 - will it save the Wii U?

Finally we are treated to other delights such as Murdered: Soul Suspect and The Last of Us: Remastered. So we've got games, are you excited?

Can't wait for Mario Kart, the next 9 days are going to drag by. Don't think the Wii U needs saving now that they're making a profit on each one sold, they just need to sell more, and MK8 will do that.

It's all about Mario Kart 8 for me, I'm super excited for it. I'm getting Watch Dogs too and already have the season pass downloaded. Though WD will stop being played briefly once the omnipotent force of MK arrives. YOSHI!!!!!

Mario Kart still looks nothing more than a party game to me. I have watch dogs pre ordered on PC also got a free pre order of murder soul suspect on PC with my graphics card.

I know this is a little off topic but I need some help. I want to activate the Destiny beta but that will make my pre order permanent, the worry I have is if a special edition is announced I'd want that instead but I wouldn't be able to cancel the standard edition. What do people think is best to do?
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
tricky, phone shop to, cant see why not
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
ive activated my code so the game cannot be canceled now so if a SE is announced i would defo call shopto if i wanted it, but check first to be safe

do you think its to late to get in on the beta now i thought they were only limited places , i would like to try it

“ About halfway through Wolfstein now, fantastic game, brilliant story and classic old school FPS gameplay. I've got doubts about Watch Dogs, I think from what was originally revealed it has now been scaled back quite a bit and from what I've read in a few magazines/sites that broke the review embargo, it's got some stupid ideas, get your online stats reset if you turn off online mode, a sort of punishment for not wanting to play online. Who knows, a few days after release I might hear from friends that it's all that it was hyped up to be, for now though I've cancelled my pre-order and will wait a few days for the feedback.Mario Kart, just give me it now lol ”
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
cant see that, as long as its pre ordered not too long before the beta it should be ok, you need to set up a bungie account and register the code there

Not really got much on my radar at the moment. There are a couple RPGs on PS3 coming and thats about it. Will try Murdered Soul Suspect once it comes down in price a bit as it looks interesting
SquareSofty's avatar
SquareSofty 3 years ago
It's still available to activate so can't see why it wouldn't be available.. thanks @Jay. If I get some time I'll call them.
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
i think Murdered is priced very well to be honest especially the limited edition being the same price as the normal version now
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
was playing more DayZ last night, now i'm sort of getting to grips with everything i'm loving it even in its alpha form. I hope when it finally releases it makes its way to consoles because it's a game i think everyone should have the oppotunity to enjoy.
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
Yeah it is priced pretty well but get the feeling could be one of those games that gets reduced to half price very quickly.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Most games can be picked up half price within weeks of release these days
Spear 25's avatar

Holding off on Wolfenstein, think its a game that won't take long to price drop, even if it doesn't, i'm prepared to wait. I've got Watchdogs and Mario Kart 8 on pre-order so looking forward to that. Got Last of us Remastered on pre-order but shame it still doesn't have an official release date but that should change once E3 comes.

@JAY just been and signed up for the destiny beta and the code worked so i should be good to go now just need to find a suitable head set
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Waiting on Wolfenstein too, migh pick it up after my holiday next month as long as the Doom Beta can be gotten from the 360 version.
jay.hamilton's avatar

@ DA , join in with me and dave then if ya want when it goes live

@Gloria I read that only the PS4, XBONE & PC will be able to try the Doom beta so I doubt you will get to try it on the 360.
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 3 years ago
The wolfenstien reviews are out and its doing pretty well with some high scores and well deserved great game
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
I know the Beta is only on current gen consoles, but I'm sure I read that you would get a download code in the last gen versions too.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
I think you are right Gloria the beta code will come with the 360 but will only be usable on xbox one and so on. I am at the same point you are at Jay did you find the easter egg in the hideout? About the Destiny beta I remember with the Hitman game that had a code that locked your preorder in but when the special editions were announced they gave you the chance to swap to one so it should be ok.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
I just went onto the site to register my Doom beta and it asks you what you bought it on and the choice for 360 or PS3 was there.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Now I'm not so sure, I might just wait then as I don't want to commit to the Xbone at this point.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
I understand, you could always still do it and give away your code or sell it on ebay if you don't end up using it.
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
that is strange as i thought doom was next gen and pc only, maybe it will be like wolfenstein then, time will tell, highly likely well see some footage at e3
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
It is Jay but if you buy the 360 version they will give you a code for the xbox one version and same with the PS3 to 4.
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
oh i see, sly devils lol
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
yes ZF i found the easter egg , just mentioned it above, probably ruined it now lol, , , so my doom beta code on ps4 is a psn code, do i not need to set up an account on doom site or can i just do it on psn
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
I'll see ZF, all depends on how much cash I've got left after holiday and how cheaply I can get the 360 version.
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
deleted the above comment so i dont ruin the surprise for people lol
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Do it on the Doom website and they will send you the code nearer the release. Yeah it was pretty fun Jay. I also liked the German version of the Beatles. If you can get it for a good price Gloria I would recommend it it's a great game. It does make me realise how much more I would like a new world war 2 game though.
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
its been a while since the good old medal of honour days
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
its ok, just been on the doom code redemption for ps4 page and it tells you to do it on psn
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
I know they got overdone a bit but it would be nice to see a good one again. Can you imagine how good the beach landings would look now. I just noticed Transistor is out tomorrow on the PS4 so i will maybe pick that up at the weekend.

Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
I'm going to wait a while for Wolfenstein, may pick that up when I'm a bit short on games to play. As for Watch_Dogs I hope that isn't true about the reset of stats and didn't Ubi say that the reviews that are out are fakes? Murdered seems to be going slightly under the radar in terms of publicity/hype. DA have you decided on your Guardian for Destiny? I'm going for an Awoken Hunter
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 3 years ago
Not yet Dave not sure yet i liked the look of it so i put in a pre order
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
I am still planning on getting Watch Dogs it should still be fun and I don't mind about the online thing as I will stay online though I can understand why it is annoying. I didn't realise there were other races in Destiny thought it was only humans but looking into it I will probably go and Human Warlock.
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
usually the ones that dont hype it up tend to surprise you so i think murdered might be a dark horse, but you never know
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
im going titan to back you up dave, take the brunt while you pick them off
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
Definitely one to get you thinking as opposed to steaming in all guns blazing. Although I do like both. DA have a look at this to help you choose your Guardian - http://uk.ign.com/wikis/destiny/Races

The Warlock reminds me of the Siren in Borderlands.

ive decided on a human titan, ive always liked heavy weapons and armour so thats me
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
And there was me hoping they would be post on Friday to make sure of delivery. They great thing about Destiny is that loot is specific to you
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
i thought it would get posted on friday, wolf was and that wasnt a bank holiday weekend, there will be a lot of people who will not get it release date i think, royal mail are a bit sketchy on next working day delivery
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 3 years ago
yeah i thought we might have been in luck for sat just hope it will arrive on tue and no back logs turn up in royal mail, its good to hear about the loot in borderlands people would pinch your stuff
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
Borderlands? I'm talking about Destiny
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
lol
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 3 years ago
yeah i know lol just saying in borderlands people would pinch all your loot after a battle
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
is is good about the loot though, finish clearing an area and all the team get specific rewards
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
I decided to go for digital for Watch dogs because of the bank holiday. Yeah it was annoying in Borderlands it was always a mad rush to get the loot. The do it so it is specific to you in Diablo as well which is good. The good thing with everyone getting there own specific loot is it increases the chances for finding rare weapons to trade within the group. Though I did read that Destiny won't have trading at launch.

Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Xbox one Nox. If it had no multiplayer I would have went for PC however the same people I play GTA with are getting this so it should be fun.
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
im not going digital just incase these rumours are true, if you get penalised for going offline then ill be selling once completed story
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
That is one downside of the digital games just now that if it is terrible we can't get rid of them.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
Me too Jay. I hope that doesn't set a precedent. I don't think that will be the case though as there would be a major backlash, I reckon
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
certain games i know ill keep forever im happy to go digital but only if i know for a fact, or a major deal on psn lol
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
I prefer to own the physical copy. Looks good on display
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Same here I prefer to have the boxes. I might just end up popping into Game early on Tuesday and picking it up. I know I could get it from here on Tuesday but my post doesn't normally come until about 3-4 in the afternoon.
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
and digital prices take the piss to be honest, i sell most games on in all honesty, keep the gems
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
It works out a bit cheaper if you buy the points separately rather than buying straight from the store.
Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 3 years ago
I rarely get games digitally. It's only through PS Plus that I normally get digital games. All for the reasons listed above, normally cheaper for physical, you can't trade in digital etc. On the subject of Destiny I just thought it was between 3 classes: Guardian, Warlock and Titan. Not too long now until the beta in July.
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 3 years ago
classes and races
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
A few weeks ago there was an ebay seller selling £50 credit on the xbox for £32 so at that point it was cheaper for me to buy a new release on the xbox one digitally than on disk.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
There are the 3 races, then the classes for the races. There are different abilities just to make choosing more difficult
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 3 years ago
I'm glad to be going all digital on PC
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Yeah the three races are essentially Humans, robots and something that looks like a dark elf.

jay.hamilton 3 years ago
no one cares toots lol
Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 3 years ago
I see what you mean. Just been reading up on it. Chances are i'd choose either Warlock (most likely) or Guardian. Don't want to be a Titan, I'm not one for heavy guns and rocket launchers. Will wait and see what the pros and cons are for the races. Don't want to be a an exo(robot) though.
