Thursday Chat: July 3, Where is the podcast?


Where's the podcast? Well it's a pretty quiet time in gaming at the moment, so we are having a summer break at the moment. It'll be back of course, but we'll leave it a while until the gaming news and reviews picks up again.



In the meantime, we can chat here, in our regular topic. So what's the biggest news of the month for you so far? What new games are you looking forward to over the next few months and have you bought an Xbox One or PS4 yet?

Let's Chat!

The biggest thing I'm looking forward to has to be Destiny. 2 weeks today for the start of the Beta! Hopefully there will be news of a Collectors Edition very soon. Also glad to hear there is a UK publisher for Project CARS (Bandai Namco UK). Hope that means we'll be able to preorder that soon too

"You only need to spend £346.59 by 17th December 2014 to continue being a GOLD MEMBER" Only? Don't think I'll be Gold next year, or at least I will be cutting it close
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago

Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
I just look on preorders and take a rough guesstimate
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

No one has time for that!
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Tbh I might cancel most of those Pre-orders and wait for the price drops
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 2 years ago
£450 by feb next year... piece of piss..
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
If your main platform was a console it would be easy to spend that
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Looking at my Pre-orders the only ones that I can cancel are Pokemon & Captain Toad. I want to support the rest (I have Devils Third ordered till I see more)
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
My platform is a console but I can't do mine in 6 orders
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 2 years ago
Does buying consoles count now as you didnt get points for consoles but does it count for spend now/
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
Yes, anything spent counts
JoeToots's avatar

I like how you're supporting them but shouldn't you support your wallet first?

My pre order list is only £132. I haven't got too many games on my list because I have been in two minds as to support Shopto, or do as JoeTootell suggests and go where your wallet takes you. Two of the games I've got on pre order have been cheaper on amazon, one was £6 cheaper. I know that doesn't sound like a lot but if you bought 8 different games throughout the year and they were about £6 cheaper elsewhere, that would be about £48. Enough to buy another game, if that makes sense.

Biggest news of last month? Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star and Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines being localized. Were only 3 days into July but there isn't any 'exciting' titles coming out this month as far as i know.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Once my Gold membership ends I will likely stop using Shopto as my main service since most of the time it is due to the Gold discount that I buy here.
Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 2 years ago
I've only recently got Gold membership and the prices above are comparing Gold membership prices to amazon prices. I can't fault Shopto on their delivery or customer service. But just think in the last 12-18 months there prices haven't been that competitive.
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 2 years ago
I think another problem is there pre order prices are too high to begin with on some games I know its just a placeholder but I feel a lot of people will see the price and go elsewhere and preorder it.
SquareSofty's avatar
SquareSofty 2 years ago
I have a bunch of pre orders at the mo but I'll see how it goes for buying them. Destiny is stuck there as I can't cancel it but I'll be happy to gst it here anyway.. I've never had Gold membership on Shopto, always silver. I doubt I could afford to keep up that kind of payment. Around 700 a year right?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
I really don't like how they changed it from 30 items to £700 but I guess since they are moving into the bike market (Why?) they had to
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Game are really fast on the dispatch. Luigi U is already on its way
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 2 years ago
Has anybody bought anything off here apart from Video Games and consoles? I have bought some gaming merchandise before when they used to do that. But has anybody bought and bike stuff or TVs?
SquareSofty's avatar
SquareSofty 2 years ago
I don't like Game as they are usually quite expensive. Online is better I guess but my loyalty card won't register on the site so it's pointless... Yeah the 30 item thing was much better.
SquareSofty's avatar
SquareSofty 2 years ago
Not yet Bindiana but I have been thinking about getting another tv next year so will consider it then.

I've only bought games or consoles from Shopto. I haven't used Game often, but when I have they've been really quick on dispatching.

So where else do you guys use apart from the obvious ones like Amazon and Game? Going through my preorders cleaning some out that I don't really need and I have noticed that the xbox one exclusives are quite a bit cheaper than the PS4 ones, really hoping Little Big planet will come down in price I don't know if I can justify £50 for it.
