As it's going to be my last free weekend for a while, with MK8 next week, Tomodachi Life the week after which I can see sucking away large amounts of my life, then my birthday and holidays the following weeks, I'm going to finish off my Fringe box set and see if I can collect all the keyrings in Kirby Triple Deluxe ;)

I'm going to play Dota 2 to try and get atleast a little more competent at it. When playing with Nox yesterday i was the downfall of our team.

Probably give powerstar Golf a good go. For anyone interested in it as its free to play you will need to buy some courses as you cant really do a lot in the free to play version its basically a demo. I doesnt look like any achievements pop as well if your looking for some quick achievements.

I finished wolfenstein last night after a hard battle on the uber difficulty and the last few levels were a challenge but it was worth it as the trophys are ultra rare at the moment should have the plat by tonight or on sat , then i will be ready for watch dogs

Will be playing some more Trials fusion and heading to the London MCM Expo on Sunday. I'm really tempted to buy Child of Light, anyone played it?
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
Child of Light is good if you like old school rpgs and is beautifully presented.

@im going space Dust is excellent, i love the way it has been made. I got it when it first came out and couldn't stop until it was finished.

I grew up with the classic FF and Dragon Quest battle systems so that's what got me interested to see a turn based system. Does the side scrolling aspect work well with it?
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
Yeah I think it works quite well it does give it a different feel to to it and makes initiating fights a bit more tactical.

I noticed that money was taken by amazon for Watchdogs, and it says its dispatching now. So hopefully if it dispatches today might get it tomorrow. If so, that is what i'll be playing over the weekend.

SquareSofty to start with in child of light I enjoyed the side scrolling but not that long into it you get the ability to fly which takes away from it I found. Don't know what I will play this weekend might just be back on GTA and Diablo.

You seen that Smash Bros wii U will use NFC figures. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-05-23-super-smash-bros-for-wii-u-will-make-use-of-nfc-toys

Thank you Bindiana and Zombie, I'll be grabbing credit for CoL tomorrow.

Yeah I saw a rumour about that the other day. I wonder how Nintendo plan on using it. I mean how many characters do you get, say in a starter pack or how much each character costs.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
They should do it so that you dont have to buy them to get the characters however have it so the figures will unlock alternate costumes or something like that. I just dont fancy having to buy lots of figures to get them all.
Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 3 years ago
I agree but problem is that this way is to make money. Look how much money Activision made of Skylanders. To be fair Nintendo aren't Activision so chances are they should be less greedy, but they need to make money too after reporting annual losses over the last 3 years. We should find out all the details on Nintendo E3 direct.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Reckon the NFC figures might be for some cross platform content, I'll definitely be picking up a few no matter what they do.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Thats true. I would probably end up buying them anyway.

Just tell him the truth Nox he was terrible. :)
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
He was but it was his first game so I will give him a pass. You and Shadow Beast were feeding Viper in the early game & Shadow Assassin/Pudge were Ganking me the whole time

I was only joking but if it was your first game thats forgiven then. I like the idea of the game just couldnt get into it.

Busy busy weekend for me. Off to a friend's to play Plants Vs Zombies: GW. I'm not hooked on that cheeky game. Tomorrow my dad from Sweden is over so we're off for a chippy tea ('cause we're that northern). Sunday I'm at a friend's for his birthday and Monday I'm hopefully going to Wembley to see Fleetwood in the play off final. If not, probably catching in the big screen somewhere. Oh, and scanning ebay for dirt cheap Wii U's as I keep doing, daily.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
It does take a while. You should play it with Toots since you can both help each other to learn the game
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Kaysar apparently HMV are selling them cheap just now.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Yep, £149 in store Lego City and Wind Waker bundles, should phone any HMVS near you and see if they have any left.
Zombieflamingo's avatar

That is actually a pretty good deal.

And it will be the Zelda bundle, assuming those are the only two bundles
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

You want the Gamepad induced in the Zelda bundle,looks gorgeous

Anyone else's social bar & basket in black instead of the usually white?
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
Well it looks like that's a no go. The only HMV in Preston and apparently they're not large enough to stock consoles. Any consoles.
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
Yeah, Akemi. I assume it's because a) I've not had a reply on a social message since being logged in and b) my basket is empty. Try adding an item to basket and see if it changes

As for me I'll be trying to stay away from Dark Souls 2 and be playing Dota 2 (With Toots hopefully) I might also start playing Chaos Head & Rewrite again
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Also just got a craving to re-play Skyward Sword since I just watch the GameXplain vids about Hyrule Warriors

I have ended up going back to civilization so no doubt that will consume endless hours.
Akemi no Zero's avatar
Akemi no Zero 3 years ago
I see thanks kaysar for the swift reply. Nox i still need to get skyward sword at some point. Do you think nintendo will re-release it an again as an nintendo select?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Just buy it right now. Amazon have it for £12.99 http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B00DCUOARE/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new

I'll rather wait to see if shopto gets more stock in & lowers the price since its that low at that certain rainforest.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I doubt they will. The Amazon price is only that low cos it is on Backorder
Akemi no Zero's avatar
Akemi no Zero 3 years ago
You never know. I will just have to sit tight & wait. Also nox i added you on nintendo network just to give you an heads up.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Personally I hope the re-master Skyward Sword for the Wii U since it is the most important Zelda lore wise
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
Cheapest I can find the Wii U is £219 at Tesco. Should I take the plunge or hold out for a better deal?
Akemi no Zero's avatar
Akemi no Zero 3 years ago
I would say get it from shopto since you get better break down & repair service here than tesco. Plus shopto has the Zelda bundle the cheapest but your call kaysar.
Akemi no Zero's avatar
Akemi no Zero 3 years ago
I wouldn't mind that eva nox but i would also like twilight princess re-masted on the wii-u but i know your not as fond as that one. But loved it personally.
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
It was the Zelda bundle for £219. Head's finally won out over heart and I'll hold fire over the bank holiday weekend, and keep my ear to the ground in the meantime
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I loved Twilight Princess but it wasn't the best Zelda game
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Tbh Twilight Princess would be better suited for a remaster/remake considering the art-style
Akemi no Zero's avatar
Akemi no Zero 3 years ago
Good luck with that kaysar. Maybe you will get lucky & get an better deal or maybe shopto will do an deal on an wii-u bundle on this weekends upcoming cyber sunday deals.
Akemi no Zero's avatar
Akemi no Zero 3 years ago
See i still love that zelda know. Yeah the art style was wonderful in twilight princess.
Bindiana's avatar

Got my wolfenstien plat last night took a while but worth it a fantastic game , hopefully watch dogs is next
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
If I win the console then I will choose PS4 and keep it, and will instantly buy Watch Dogs Exclusive PS4 edition and Infamous from Shopto. If I do not win the console then I am still not going to buy it even if it is on a deal, and will not be buying extra PS4 games from Shopto (or anywhere). Also I wonder which Xbox ONE they will ship out, the one with or without Kinect, they state "The prize will be delivered to the winner within 28 days of confirmation of delivery address" and the cheaper Kinect less one releases 9th June. It is something to think about for those planning on selling it. If I win and choose PS4 that will not be an issue :)
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
Watch Dogs Season Pass has been on sale for a while now. Is there any bonus for getting now? They seem to be milking season passes these days if there is no bonus, as may as well wait until get the game and played it a bit first before jumping in and buying it.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
It was a pretty fun game Assassin did you go all through the second playthrough as well.
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 3 years ago
No zombie prob save that play through for another time it was fun but i will save it for a play through in a month or so , do a bit of gta until watch dogs arrives cannot wait till tues now

so ive just been on wolfenstein finishing up some bits and found Vault 101 in the hangar bay, second little bonus ive found now, seen it a few times but only just realised what it was, wonder if Fallout 4 may be announced at E3
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Which one did you go through the first time? There are only a few subtle differences. I noticed that one as well Jay , they said they wont be but it wouldnt be the first time a developer has lied about not announcing something.
jay.hamilton's avatar

More so with fallout developers, very secretive

The Watch Dogs content and different versions is mindblowing. Here is it all explained in full details: http://watchdogs.wikia.com/wiki/Watch_Dogs#UPlay_Pre-Order_Edition_Comparison It seems that you get the 3 of the 4 playstation content through season pass anyway on any format. Plus the PC Deluxe version gets you all the playstation content. If you get the dedsec edition and the season pass then you are paying for most of the content twice.

@ Zombie i did the fergus time line first (the pilot) i think that was his name where you could hot wire the doors and safe's with the cables
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Same here, he was just a better character I thought. I got watchdogs today and it is pretty fun. It takes a while to get used to the driving though and the invading is fun.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
