Party time for me as it's my birthday today, meeting up with some friends for drinks tonight and expect to get very drunk as I've not touched alcohol in over ten weeks.

Happy Birthday Gloria! Raise a glass for me. My weekend will consist of Destiny, Uni work, seeing my dad (Father's Day on Sunday, peeps) and football in the background as and when it's appropriate.

Got work over the weekend but whatever free time I get will be spent playing destiny. Does anyone know if you can carry over your character into the game once it's released?
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
Are you "saving" the character online at any point? If so, I would assume so. But it depends, sometimes after alphas/betas they wipe the characters so everyone starts on a level playing field. I know they did with my character I'd developed for MAG when I beta tested that

Happy Birthday Gloria. Not sure will have much time for video games this weekend might squeeze a couple games of Mario Kart in.

What is tomodachi life like is it just sims on crack?
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
Sort of, more fun though, there's mini games and you can look in to their dreams and stuff. There's no real serious repercussions though, I've been deliberately starving one of my islanders to see what happens, but apart from occasionally complaining of hunger he seems fine.

@ jay, what's your psn ID? I don't have any friends that got onto the alpha for destiny. I could also do with adding some people to play with when destiny comes out.

speaking of alphas and betas. i really hope one day that DayZ comes to consoles as it is a brilliant game and i'd love everyone to be able to experience it!
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
I would love it to come to consoles too, that walking simulator lol
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 2 years ago
Once you get over the bit of a learning curve it's a real blast. Me and 2 other guys where stuck in an intense battle against a few other guys that lasted a good 20 mins yesterday
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 2 years ago
for now there is alot of walking but obviously that's because it's in alpha stage but i believe the plan is to add vehicles.
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
they probably wont make you walk everywhere, in destiny you can call your star wars speeder bike at any time, its pretty cool, hope wipeout style races are added too as that would be awesome

Speaking of reading, I've just picked up Mr. Mercedes and only two chapters in I'm hooked. Stephen King has been a complete bastard already and after just the first chapter I'd be recommending this book to everyone (as I'm currently doing)

Payday 2 i though wasn't that great

RTLF's avatar

Yea I'm happy to switch on the old PS3 whenever my friends wanna bit of payday action so wont be upgrading to ps4(unless they put it on ps plus for free like the ps3 version). @Jay I'll be ready to go by 8pm, gimme a shout when you're ready. Had a quick go this morning (was downloading over night) before work and its really awesome! Was hard to tear myself away and was nearly an hour late to work! :P Happy Birthday Gloria, Mario Party Time! ;)

Kaysar's avatar

I'll be on from as soon as I've eaten (around 6pm) but I'll probably spend an hour or two in solo mode getting to grips with it all before I embarrass myself in front of others ;-)
RTLF's avatar

haha, well you'll likely bump into other players who are mid mission so you can help them out on your way

I didn't post your id I just said look for bubbajai, cant remember what ur psn actually was fully or how it was spelt, spaces and caps etc, soz bro, invasion of privacy lol

Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 2 years ago
Just been playing destiny for a few hours now. I've reached max level for alpha which is level 8. Spent most of the time today on multiplayer, which is good but I find it annoying as I don't usually like to play capture and hold as a game mode. Just about to do some more single player exploration. I accepted jays and bubba jai name requests, feel free to add me anyone else it's welshy132
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
im still level 6 coz I started pissing about having some fun, so still gives me something to do tonight
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
I left the devils lair for tonight
Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 2 years ago
Yeah I did Devils lair with 2 other people that were level 8. Didn't last long unfortunately as they killed everything. I only got to kill 4 enemies. Going to have another go at it though, might get a better chance to enjoy it.

I really hope I can get my hands on a PS4 after seeing that. I was planning on getting one at the end of the year but Nintendo has blown that idea out of the water

The PC is sort of showing my the value of money and that i don't need to sell games on once i've finished them.

Speaking about Bloodborne i think the name rules & the concept how the game will play sounds really sweet. I just hope its just not next gen only, but eva way i still love the art style.
Bindiana's avatar

your all doing it wrong you need to write an essay each post with stating the same thing over and over again which is untrue something like the Wii U has the best 3rd party support.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

Hehehehehe. The game isn't on Next-Gen systems since the PS5 and whatever stupid name M$ come up with next aren't out

Question: Why don't Shopto stock Nintendo Eshop cards?

Because they can.

Nox you know what i mean. Someone happy to huh nox-tan? Anyways what did you think of bayonetta 2 :) made me happy looks stunning. Just hope we get it around november this year.
Akemi no Zero's avatar
Akemi no Zero 2 years ago
Maybe game owns he say on e cards who knows.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Places other than Game stock Eshop cards. Bayoneta 2 looked immense and I'm so glad that it is coming with the original. Also I'm sure I'm not the only one that picked on on this but the way they were talking made it seems like Bayoneta 2 might be released on the other consoles after all
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Anyone here have a Littlewoods account? I'm not a fan of getting stuff on credit but I do need to get a good credit score & it seems like the easiest way
Akemi no Zero's avatar
Akemi no Zero 2 years ago
Yeah true but bayonetta link costume made me laugh in an good way. But i don't mind if it does get an release for other platforms, to be fair it will help out for more people to discover bayonetta.

@Jay, I take back what I said about Devils Lair. That mission is challenging, the reason I didn't find it challenging in the first place was because when I started it the fire team I joined had basically completed the entire mission.
RTLF's avatar
RTLF 2 years ago
Nox I have a Littlewoods account but I never use it anymore because I started using Very instead (very.co.uk). Very seems to use the exact same database of products as Littlewoods only Very sells everything at the standard rrp where as Littlewoods charges rip off prices. For example a £400 bike I bought from Very was listed on Littlewoods for £550 and the Samsung 47" flat screen I got from Very for £550 was £650 on Littlewoods. Check it out mate
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
My team has just failed devils lair lol, all got smoked at the same time so no one to revive each other, will have another crack at it later, I was also placed with 2 level 4 noobs so I was constantly reviving them lol
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Now that is just stupid
RTLF's avatar
RTLF 2 years ago
Let me know if you fancy it, we'll both get £20 for free if I recommend you :)
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Now I would always pay for an item before the interest kicks in but the APR on orders from Very is just stupid
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
Littlewoods and Very are the same company, the price difference is because Littlewoods offer longer terms of credit, and Very add interest to the price the longer you take to pay it back.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Only reason I'm looking into this at the moment is I came across a voucher for £30 off £60 orders at Littlewoods (Think Very has one too) so I'm going to have a look through the contracts in a little bit before I decide
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
That sounds like quite a good deal RTLF
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
They do those offers all the time Nox, there are strings attached, like having to pay for your £60 order on a buy now pay later which adds interest, and actually works out a worse deal.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
As soon as you get your order can't you just pay the outstanding balance so you don't accumulate interest?
RTLF's avatar
RTLF 2 years ago
Any order over £100 on very is eligible for Buy Now Pay Later with 6 months interest free, 12 months on orders over £200. I did it for my TV, bike and PS4 and have been paying it off bit by bit every month at my discretion. TV and PS4 fully paid off now, just a bit left for the bike. As long as you pay it off before the the 6/12 month period you incur no interest so it's been awesome for me, plus very's customer service and delivery system has been flawless
RTLF's avatar
RTLF 2 years ago
Nox the answer to that is.... yes
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
I'm not going to use it for big orders like that. Just get a £20 PSN card (Sucks they don't do Eshop cards) Luigi U & something else just so I can get some credit so Santender will give me one of those cards where the numbers don't rub off after 3 days.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Stupid reason, I know
RTLF's avatar
RTLF 2 years ago
you could always (finally so you stop going on about it :P) get yourself a PS4 or Vita or both, then you have 12 months to pay it off (as you wish) interest free
RTLF's avatar
RTLF 2 years ago
I know you wont... just hypothetical perspective
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Haha, nice body blow! I don't trust myself to do that since I'm really spontaneous when it comes to buying stuff
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 2 years ago
If you want to improve your credit rating one of the best ways is a credit card but make sure you pay it off each month. But obviously there dangerous things.
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
If you want to improve your credit score, and without paying exuberant prices from a catalogue, get a credit card. Just be sure to a) use it (or your credit score goes down) and b) pay it all off month end so no interest is accumulated.
RTLF's avatar
RTLF 2 years ago
^Sound advice from these two, been told the exact same thing by an accountant I know
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Even if I tried to get a credit card (I wouldn't) my family would go mental if they found out. Too dangerous for my tastes
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
Only dangerous if you're lacking in self control (ie, spend it all). My mum has used credits cards her whole life and only ever earned money through cash back schemes. Me, well, I needed them for a deposit so I have a few grand burning holes in my bank balance but it's currently interest free so *shrugs*
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Lol! Sure the #1 problem is having no self control but the other for me is just not using it
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Well looks like http://www.gog.com/ has done it again, some really good deals up
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
Catalogues are just as dangerous as credit cards, you order one thing and they just keep pestering you with offers and raise your credit limit, and before you know it, you've ordered thousands of pounds worth of stuff which you end up paying off for years.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 2 years ago
i can't trust myself with a credit card :D:D:D me and self control don't go in the same sentence.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
You have to go through a simple procedure to use your credit card to buy something but with Catalogues it is a longer process (More time for you to come to your senses)
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
I don't really think about it when I buy something in a shop but when I'm buying something online I always spend about 10 min thinking about whether to place to order or not
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 2 years ago
i think about it but do it anyways
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
I'm worse online, terrible impulse buyer, in actual shops I stick with cash so I can't overspend.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Well one of the thing I do now is before I go into a shop is have a look at my bank balance and go from there

I see the FF14 head is trying to get Microsoft to change their stance on cross platform so they can bring it out on xbox one. Just wondering has anyone else seen the hassle Ubisoft are getting for not having a playable female character in the new Assassins Creed and Far Cry 4, I feel like some places are making it a bigger issue than it is.

I have been wondering what is with all the feminists making noise lately? First it was them kicking up a shit storm cos Link is male in Zelda U (News flash, he has always been male) and Farcry is trying to tell a story so what gender the MC has got to make sense in the context of the story
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
I can understand with AC, at least one of the 4 could have been a female. Sleeping Dogs HD? Uhhh, the game was already in HD
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
The way that multiplayer works for AC is like watch dogs so you are always the main character so always playing a male and will not see what you look like to other players. The strange thing is all of the multiplayer AC games have had female characters in them as well so it is a bit strange they don't have them in this but its not really an issue. The whole Zelda thing is a strange one complaining that Link is male is like complaining that Lara Croft or Samus is female. Though I wouldn't mind having a female Link. The Sleeping Dogs is strange and it always annoys me when people say they want an old 360 or PS3 game in HD as they were.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
