Exciting for me is entertaining my parent's last night with a home made curry (so now my house smells of a million and one spices) and discovering - after booking my first holiday - that Ryanair charge £50 per piece of luggage! Otherwise, my Mario Kart 8 turned up last night (yay) but my Wii U order is still "processing" from Saturday (boo), so there will be a phone call to that store this afternoon.

£50 per piece of luggage, you could buy an extra ticket for less and give the suitcase a seat.

Sounds like a plan. Got my holiday coming up in a couple of weeks, just a week in Cornwall, and the weather forecasts aren't great for it either, will be nice to get out of London for a bit though, and I'm going to go spread my dogs ashes on her favourite beach.

I'm sorry to hear about the passing of your dog, and I hope the day is full of happy memories of your time with her (that's how I coped (still cope) with the passing of my dog a few years ago). And fingers crossed for a change in the weather, it's normally difficult to predict with any accuracy weather beyond 5 days.

Still getting used to life without her, keep expecting her to walk in or thinking I see her out of the corner of my eye. Got my fingers crossed for the weather, been keeping an eye on it for weeks and it keeps changing, as long as we get a few days without rain that'll be good enough.

Weather is all over the place down here Gloria. I have the week after next off work and usually when i have a week off the weather is amazing hope I still have that luck this year.

only holiday i'm on this year is from the 22nd of december to the first of jaunary. Off to sharm el sheikh. Christmas without my son on christmas day was shite and depressing and there's no chance his mum will let me have him on christmas day this year.
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
Yeah, that'll last awhile. I found it never completely went away (I still think about him) but the gaps between each thought get longer, and each thought of them becomes less painful (and eventually only happy memories). Bar this holiday to Malaga (a stag do) my only other break from work is four days near the border of Scotland (before they close it and rebuild a wall) next month, but that's for my Open University studies so will hardly be a holiday. Still, I'll be out looking at rocks so hopefully the weather is decent.

Me and the wife spent 3 days in Truro 3 weeks ago. I absolutely love it Cornwall, lovely place. As for the weather, typical UK, hope it gets nicer soon, off to the Isle of Wight Festival next week.

Yep, this is the first time I've been without a dog for over 20 years, when my last one died we already had a new one for a few years so it wasn't so bad, she missed him though, when we came back from the vets without him she was running around the house looking for him, they'll be together now though. Not sure if we'll be getting another one now, feeling a bit old to be taking on a puppy, might see about a rescue dog at some point.

When i go cornwall i go to a little place called porthcothan new newquay.. LOVE IT!
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
I suppose a puppy would be a big ask but it depends on the breed of the dog. Some puppies are less "hyper" than others, but a rescue dog sounds like a great idea! I know my grandma and granddad used to always house rescue dogs and it's something - when I get space larger than my flat - I will be looking out doing myself.
Bindiana's avatar

Thats one thing I like about living in Plymouth its a bit of a crappy city but have Cornwall on your doorstep and lots of beautiful places in Devon as well.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Yeah, Cornwall is great, so many nice places, we're going to Bude this time as I won the coin toss, and we'll do Penzance next year.
Old Timer's avatar
Old Timer 3 years ago
Puppies can be a handful, great fun though and worth it in the end, our dog is 2 years old now ( Boxer ) and I remember when we first got him, he loved a bit of mischief.

I live in Cornwall and today the weather is nice and sunny and I can't see a cloud in the sky. On the subject of gaming I've been playing watch dogs quite a lot, doing side missions etc. Hardly touched the main campaign yet though.

I know, been there a few times already, first time was when they had the eclipse down there, 99 I think.

get a young rescue dog, ours was two when we got him, and had clearly been traumatised by previous owners. still going strong-ish now. doing well for a 15 year old dog of his size.

Well I have decided the winner of yesterdays comp was Zombie as the joke did make me chuckle. will send the code to you later on today.

Just been told my Wii U will be sent today and I've been upgraded to Royal Mail First Class posting. So here's hoping it arrives by Friday (as it's coming to the office and no-one is in on a Saturday...)

Where did you order it from out of interest?

You can beat me at Mario Kart soon then ;)
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

You mean Parcelforce don't you? First Class has a size/weight limit. Oh Gloria I see you were using the Yoshicycle yesterday, you were taking the corners too late
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
Grainger Games (but they're not a touch on you ShopTo (do I get brown nose points?)). And yeah, when I set it up, Gloria, I'll be sure to post my Nintendo ID. Although beating you at Mario Kart may not be possible, racing games are not my forte (even with blue shells in my arsenal)
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
Ordered a few things from them they are a bit on the slow side for despatching.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Yes, I was testing the Yoshicycle Nox, seems to handle better with heavier characters I thought, still not keen on it though, will stick with 3 or 4 wheeled vehicles for now. I'm quite easy to beat Kaysar, just ask Nox, I have a bit of luck now and again, but generally I'm pretty crap.

Does anyone else get pulled back to the Shopto tab with the msg "Shopto says *******" It is getting really annoying

I keep getting a box coming up pulling me back to this browser tab, like an error message.
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
The email said Royal Mail First class. I've only used Grainger Games once before and they were very good. It's not often I dive into the 2nd hand market but bar Cex (which is terrible) I don't really know anywhere other than GG or Ebay that's decent on price.
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
I've had that box pop up for months if not over a year. It tends to happen if I keep the ShopTo browser open for longer than half hour or so.

Is your Club Nintento ID the same as the ID for 3DS/Wii U?
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
And I've just received a text telling my my Wii U will arrive tomorrow via Interlink Express *does a happy dance*
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
No, you need to create a Nintendo Network ID, unless you've already got one on 3DS, and you can connect that to your Club Nintendo account.
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
Hmm, I did something to connect the two awhile ago. I'll figure it out tomorrow and put up my NNID when I find it. I'm sure it's already there but I've never used it to connect to people (don't know any other Nintendo gamers)
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
That's the beauty of Miiverse, everyone on there is a Nintendo gamer, and it's easy to find people to play with, or just talk about games.

I will be off on Saturday so assuming nothing else comes up I will be on MK for a while if everyone else is on. Also anyone want a guest pass for Wildstar?

Seems my paintballing 2nd date has hit a snag with the paintball place being shut. We're going to reschedule for the following weekend but any advice for other suitable dates for this Sunday? I'm going to have a look online tonight but would be nice to have some ideas to bounce off

Go to the zoo. Mini Golf is also a good laugh.
Bindiana's avatar

or ten pin bowling would say worst would be cinema as you cant talk there. Zombie did you get my message and did you preorder the collectors edition from Square Enix?
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
Bowling was a first thought, but I did used to bowl and I do know it really bores some people. Zoo is good, assuming the weather is, and Blackpool zoo isn't far from either of us. Not sure we have a mini-golf anywhere nearby (bar Blackpool and, well, just no)
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
I did cheers just checked. Not yet going to wait and see the price of the standard and if Destiny are doing a collectors edition. Not a fan of bowling myself but thats probably because I am terrible at it.
Bindiana's avatar

Fair enough was going to see if you had any problems ordering as it seems to keep giving me an error message when I try and pre order.

I thought they said they were not doing DLC, I still need to go back and play this.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

Already been through this with Stuart. They said there were no plans for DLC but if people wanted it then they would reconsider

I suppose more is good, you seen Sniper Elite 2 is free to download on Steam for today only.

Yeh, Toots is going to be pissed since he bought it a few weeks ago
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Cant imagine he would have payed much for it though.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Yea but £5 can a long way with PC gaming
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Thats true but I suppose it is just one of those risks you take with the daily sales and so on. Will the steam summer sale not be starting soon?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Should be starting around E3 I would think
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
Booted up my 3DS (after months of being turned off) to a full battery. Anyway, my NNID is Kaysar, quelle surprise. For any and all who want to add me, I should be set up on the Wii U by the weekend, and gaming starting next week
Zombieflamingo's avatar

Was hoping for next month so I would be able to get more but I suppose I can save money. Will add you neck time I am on it.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I don't think Toots has bought much of the Steam Store, I think he prefers to use the Humble Store since 20% goes to charity
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Just wait till he gets his first summer sale though. Just seen the box art for the new Mortal Kombat and don't really like it, would have preferred if they went for Sub Zero.

http://www.destructoid.com/dead-rising-3-listed-on-steam-database-update--275967.phtml Another comment about Xbox ONE having the better launch line up "Say what you want about the Xbox One, but its launch lineup was substantially better (I liked Ryse, don't judge me) than the PS4's, with a great deal of that having to do with Dead Rising 3. Hopefully Capcom will offer up some official news at E3, but until then, it looks like a pretty sure thing" Also Phil Spencer has stated they want to make a come back to Windows gaming - GFWL2? https://twitter.com/XboxP3/status/472792664245407744

superniceguy 3 years ago
Whats happening to GFWL?, is it shutting down on 1st July or is it just Age of Empires Online? There is still no official word from MS saying GFWL is shutting down, apart from a brief message which got deleted. They had warnings of Windows XP support shutting down for the past 2 years, initially it was going to end in 2013 but got extended for a year. I do not see GFWL shutting down without at least one months warning, and there is none. Maybe they will resurrect GFWL with Dead Rising 3?! I liked GFWL as could get achievements added to my Xbox gameerscore
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
You liked GFWL? Well that explains everything
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
He probably liked it because it was an extra platform for him to buy the same game on.
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
GFWL is good for Xbox gamers, if you are not a Xbox gamer then can understand its frustration having to sign up to Xbox Live too. GFWL made Xbox games next gen / better and smoother and still an still used a Xbox controller. It also saved having to buy games twice as all stats would spread across everywhere in one go. Playing Watch Dogs on PC is better than Xbox but does not add to Gamerscore, achievements go to Uplay stats, so need the Xbox version for Xbox Gamerscore. If Watch Dogs was under GFWL I would have only needed PC version. It is nice getting achievements on Steam, Uplay, Playstation etc but my main focus is Xbox Live Gamerscore

superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
For the record I do not go buying games on all platforms all at once, watch dogs is the first and probably be the last. If I did not get the PC version for £61 and paying £85 which was the price during April / May, then would have cancelled and just got the Dedsec Xbox ONE version. Plus in this case too I was not expecting to be having a PS4. So the only stupid thing was being impatient and not waiting for the console comp to end. Generally I go buy one, sell it and then buy the other one when it is cheap and on sale, and I want to play it again. Anyway you are all jealous I won the console comp, stupid wins!

You can like people's comments. Well something similar. Go to the social section and it gives you the option to up or down vote on people's comments. Never tried it, though

So you can, it's a lot of work though and doesn't show up unless you look on social, so kind of pointless.
