Just Tomodachi life and Mario kart for me this weekend, hoping to snag a cheap copy of Wolfenstein too, but I won't get that till next week sometime.

Had an email from Bungie today. Anyone who has entered a beta code on bungie.net needs to sign in to their account and go to redeemed codes section and choose which format they want to play the beta on. It would seem the beta codes offered by retailers are generic. I tried to select Playstation 4 Europe but it didn't work. Has anyone else had this problem?

I've just been and checked, I don't get an error message but it does tell me to come back on the 17th as that's the only time I can register which platform I'd like the beta for. But it's nice to be getting two extra codes, I have two RL friends with PS4 and I do know one is desperate to play the game but can't afford the pre-order.

Will be on Divinity again this weekend. So for Destiny are the PS4 American and European servers separate? I noticed for the xbox one says global.

Will be mainly playing tomodachi life and Murdered Soul Suspect. Gloria how do you send an explorer out or get one in that and a marriage are the last things I need to unlock on the island.
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
I think you can only get an explorer when you spot pass with someone

Did some more "exploring". You can also unlock the explorer section when a couple have a baby and they grow up to be an explorer. Obviously, spotpassing with someone would be quicker but that does also rely on them having had a child become an explorer.

Yep, exploring is activated when the first kid on the island grows up and is given the option to go exploring, not had a single spot pass for the game in over a month so far, not even taking it across the country on holiday, so that's probably the quickest way to unlock it unless you know someone else with the game. Marriage will happen once a couple have been going out for a while, shouldn't take too long.

My fastest marriage was within the same day of dating. I'm expecting a Britney style divorce in the next few days...
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 2 years ago
Yeah I presumed marriage would happen eventually will be patient on that one. Only just getting the hand of spot pass as never done it before have wandered round my town centre last couple days on my lunch and not got any.
Dead's avatar

Sadly when a marriage breaks up you don't get a court scene of the divorce the same way you get the wedding.
Dead's avatar

I meant streetpass not spotpass too, still keep getting them mixed up after all this time.

Well I've got three married and two have had fights. Surprisingly, the same day marriage seems to be the strongest... Wait, there's a difference between spotpass and streetpass? Is one to do with connecting to wifi hotspots?

If you already have access to the Destiny Beta then please let someone else who hasn't redeem this code: YXD-LTL-DAX here at http://www.bungie.net/en/User/coderedemption

Found a site which has a lot of gaming QR codes for Tomodachi life http://tomodachiqr.tumblr.com/archive

Yep Kaysar, spotpass is a general online thing, streetpass is other 3DS's
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
There's better QR codes to be found just by googling Mii QR codes Bindania, scanned in a couple of Star Trek ones the other day and 7 of 9 immediately hooked up with a boy who had just left home like some intergalactic cougar.

Myself will try to squeeze in some time for mairo kart & finally finish the missions up on full burst. Maybe some tomodachi life also. About the QR codes Gloria do you just use the camera on your 3ds to scan them or do you have to start tomodachi life first to scan them ?
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
You can do either Akemi, scan them in using Mii Maker or use the option in Tomodachi Life.

Just managed to score a free copy of Wolfenstein using nectar points and some of the money I got from selling my physical copy of Tomodachi life, if I'm lucky it might turn up tomorrow. Plus the Doom beta code comes with it.

Got a Mii plaza streetpass today from someone who's most recent software was Tomodachi Life, but no Tomodachi Life Streetpass :(
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Could be they have not activated it yet I know I had to turn the streetpass off for a game to put Tomodachi on.
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
Yeah, it's a bit annoying you can only have a dozen games on streetpass at once.

Anybody noticed that shopto have done a price drop on destiny? Was £55 now £50 well gold is £47.86 so that's still a few quid more then Amazon but still.
Dead's avatar

Looks like I should be getting Wolfenstein tomorrow now, the Ebay seller got it in the last post by recorded delivery and it only has to come 30 miles tops.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Heres hoping you get it tomorrow then Gloria. We get it Danny Shopto is dearer for Destiny however they still have a fair few cheaper than other places so shop around and go for wherever suits you best its what I do I have a fair few ordered all over the place.
Danny_936's avatar
Danny_936 2 years ago
Ive got 8 with shopto 2 are now paid for and 6 with amazon, xbox one exclusives are cheaper on shopto and some 3rd party are cheaper on amazon like far cry 4 £44 n lotr middle earth £37
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Theres just too many games coming out soon, personally I went through my list and the majority were cheaper here. Have you noticed how expensive the PS4 exclusives are compared to the xbox one exclusives? I am missing out on LOTR and Far Cry 4 until they come down in price. The one I did find which was strange on Amazon was Pokemon Sapphire which was £1 cheaper than Ruby on there as well, dont understand why one is more expensive.
Danny_936's avatar
Danny_936 2 years ago
i don't have a PS4, i was going to get one to play the last of us and infamous second son but spending £400+ to play 2 games just seemed stupid maybe ill get a PS4 in the Q4 of 2015 when there's many more PS4 exclusives and by that i mean AAA games and not indie games.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Probably for the best The last of us is good but you could get in on the PS3 for cheaper and still have the same experience as its the story that shines not so much the gameplay. Infamous I personally found a bit disapointing it looked nice but wasnt as good as the last 2.

Just quick scan watched your review video, question why is there no intro? and most importantly why is there no game play of the game in the back ground while your talking/reviewing the game?
Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 2 years ago
Have to agree Infamous Second Son was disappointing. I had high hopes for it because I love the franchise but when you compare the series Infamous 2 was by far the best of the lot. On the exclusive front I still think Killzone Shadowfall is a good game, probably not a system seller, but worthy of getting if you do have a PS4.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
My main issue with Infamous was the city just felt a bit too lifeless and giving you more than one set of powers made them feel a little less unique.
Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 2 years ago
I just think there were a greater variety in enemies in Infamous 2 and I loved the Amp weapon too. The Story was more interesting too especially when compared to second son's story.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
There was that as well I was wondering when we were going to get new enemies in it but apparently not. Also not a fan of Assassin Creed style towers in games where you have to do a repetitive task to unlock a portion of the map.
Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 2 years ago
I don't think there were towers in the previous Infamous games but you did have to do something to unlock portions of the map. Same can be said for Watch dogs. I don't understand why games do it, maybe its because they want you to explore the map bit by bit rather than do missions randomly around the map.
Danny_936's avatar
Danny_936 2 years ago
Ubisoft are very samey same with there towers/viewpoints across assassins creed, far cry 3 and watch dogs.

Danny_936's avatar

i really enjoyed watch dogs kept me entertained for ages
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Still not finished watch dogs either. In the first one you went underground to turn on the power at various parts but at least that was mixed with the excitement of new powers. In watch dogs they were sort of puzzles to some of them which helped mix it up a bit but every one in ice one son was just blow this thing up. Far cry did bore me a bit with them as well especially when you got a silent sniper rifle it just made everything too easy. I understand why they are in the game but I think they should just be mixed up a bit.

Dead 2 years ago
360, took around 40 minutes once I'd made some space on my HDD for it, all started now though and it's all good, and has reassured me that last gen games are still good enough not to need to upgrade just yet.
