Thursday Chat: July 17


It's Thursday and still not a lot is happening in the world of gaming. 


So once again it's time to chat amongst yourselves and another sunny day in the outside world. There will soon come a point where there are so many new games released that you won't have time to go outside, so enjoy it while you can. 

Let's Chat!

Here's a question - Do any of you guys have a game related tattoo, if so what? If not, what would you get. I have the Hitman logo on my forearm (mainly because I like the tribal design)
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
No strictly gaming related tattoos, I have a few comic ones which had games based on them if that counts. I've got Judge Dredd, Johnny Alpha and Nemesis the Warlock all inked on me.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
Cool. Lets expand the question - Game, Comic, Movie (inc manga)

jay.hamilton 2 years ago
I have a mass effect tattoo, which has the N7 logo, renegade and paragon symbols, Cerberus and Alliance symbols and a reaper
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
Also have a Tolkien based one I designed myself which has the 3 silmarils, smaug, Tolkien symbol surrounded by the one ring text, and I also have a liver bird

I don't have a tattoo, but I used to doodle as a kid. There were two particular ones, one a serpent breathing fire and the other two serpents wrapping themselves around a sword. My friend liked both those designs enough to have them inked on his arm. That's as close as I've ever come to getting my own tattoo, though (I'm too indecisive)
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
2 serpents wrapped around a sword is almost the design for the international medical logo. My next 2 tats (movie) are Poseidon & Hades 3/4 sleeves
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
I wanna get a south park design on my leg, and billy Mitchell on my arm
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
You have to get Billy done to immortalise him ... lol

I would have to find some free skin to have Tali vas Shopto
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
Tali vas shop to would be a goodun, Hope I can get billy Mitchel looking like a badass again later
Dead's avatar

Billy Mitchell? From Eastenders or that dick from King of Kong?

Project Zero 5 would be nice but cant see it coming over here sadly.

PHILIP 2 years ago
I do hope they release Project Zero 5 over here, looks great. I had to use the translation mod to play the 4th one in English after months of having it on pre-order to finally never being released. . Real shame if it don't make an appereance.
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
Isn't there a Project Zero film in production, sure I heard something about it, if there is it might mean there's more chance of the game going world wide.
Anonymous user's avatar
PHILIP 2 years ago
There was talk of a film a while back but I think plans went tits up. Would be fantastic if it did get world wide release... Loved the whole series. Plus PJ2 got a Wii edition over here so maybe if sales go well there could be a chance ???

Any one know when the beta starts today i have seen 5pm and 6pm so far?
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago

jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
actually no im mistaken it was 6pm I got my alpha code
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 2 years ago
thanks looking forward to it keeping a eye on my email lol
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
Apparently emails going out 10am PST - 6PM for us
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
that would fit in to last time then, I tried those cards codes, got to 9 then 10 failed and blocked me from entering codes for 24 hours
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 2 years ago
Talking of destiny Game are claiming they have allocated all there Ghost editions for Xbox one and nearly all for Ps4
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 2 years ago
I prefer 6pm so thats good chance to get some food first , thanks for the link to the codes dave manged to redeem them
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
I used daves link lol,, im not starting the beta properly till tomorrow night anyway so ill try again, ill be setting billy up tonight though , and maybe a quick non headset go of the game
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 2 years ago

Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Sam with Joe here no tattoos for me. I still need a cheap headset for my PS4 but looking forward to trying the beta though it could take a while to download tonight.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
I probably won't be able to get really stuck in until Mon when I'm off work. I use TB PX5, absolutely brilliant
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 2 years ago
@ ZOMBIE have a look at the p4c head set on amazon only costs about £8 its for chat only so you need external speakers , that's why i went with it i have a 5.1 set up and did not want to spend a lot on one
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Sounds good will have a look, have surround sound as well so not fussed about having to use external speakers.
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
Has anyone visited the Bungie forums? It's just full of people bitching and moaning about the beta (before it's even released). 'cause you know it's not enough that Destiny is having a beta, the beta also has to satisfy every whim of everyone who's signed up to play it.....
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 2 years ago
destiny is getting people so hyped that so many people will be dissapointed kaysar (even though it's only a beta)
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 2 years ago
i think the severs might get jammed tonight my self
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
Let me guess, most of it is PS gets 8 days, we only get 4!!! Do you guys know one of the 'new' things for the Beta is now you can upgrade your weapons
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
I seen that Kaysar you also have the "You have betrayed xbox" threads throughout as well. Anyone use this headset? http://www.shopto.net/video-games/ps4/PS4AC24-playstation-wireless-headset-20
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 2 years ago
Credit to bungie they seem to of managed to get a lot of hype going for the game.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
I don't know, they were flashing up the servers for select playtesting yesterday. I watched the IGN live stream
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 2 years ago
hope it all goes fine its been a long time planning , the alpha went fine didn't it
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
Speaking of Destiny, has anyone got a preferred class yet? I overplayed as the warlock last time and got a friend to play as the Titan. Going to try hunter this time around as stealth and speed are my preferred tactics in FPS
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Yeah I am expecting Diablo 3 type issues personally. Which coincidentally I will be playing Diablo 3 getting my last achievement for getting a lvl 30 hardcore character. Also with all this about Peter Dinklage being Ghost I didn't realise it also had the likes of Nathan Fillion, Lance Reddick and Gina Torres in it, will be disappointed if there is no Adam Baldwin.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
I am a Hunter ... FTW
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Not too keen on the looks of the Titan so I will try the Hunter or Warlock, probably Warlock first though.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
Tried Warlock, just couldn't get on with it. Whereas my son loved Titan
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Just never really been into the whole Tank thing.
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 2 years ago
i like a good tank class who can do a bit of every thing , can you upgrade sniper skills ect if that's not your class
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
I really liked the warlock but I did realise, by the end of the alpha, that I was playing it thinking it was the stealth character (doh!). Ideally, and there should be enough time, I'll give all three a proper rinsing.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
If you use a sniper rifle, that can be upgraded (green rarity and above)
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
The more rare a weapon/armour the more there is on the upgrade tree
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Are there any risk to upgrading like you may brake the weapon or is it just expensive?
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 2 years ago
prob be a titan for me just had a read on ign may give the others a quick go as well though
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
Reading up on the classes, it seems they're more a template. You can go against that template, should you so wish. So yes, you could have a tank with a sniper rifle, and you can upgrade the rifle. As for sniper skills, you can only upgrade the skills your class has.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
Also, watching the live stream last night, everyone appeared to have maxed out at lvl 8 again. No XP gain after that. I believe you can switch back and forth between upgrades as you wish. They don't cost, it is based purely on useage
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 2 years ago
sounds good i like a tank class who can use sniper rifles as well , i did that in borderlands used assualt rifles and a sniper rifle
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
During Crucible matches you will be initially penalised for switching weapons, by having no ammo for special/heavy until they drop in at about 2 mins (I think)
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
Yeah, I noticed that in the actual missions and it was a tad annoying. Stopped me investigating new weapons for fear of having no ammo and a boss soon to face.
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 2 years ago
is that the pvp matches
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
Yeah PvP. 4 arenas for Beta - Venus, Earth, Moon (+vehicles) & Mars. All control mode
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
Crucible? Yeah
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar
TruDarkAssassin 2 years ago
will have to remember that thanks , i didn't play the alpha so its all new to me how things work
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
Crucible. Top tip from Bungie - On the Moon, the way to take out a turret placement is to ram it with the big vehicle, I think it's the Pike
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Apparently Dave that only works if you yell Yippee ki-yay just before you do it.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
Yeah, but who wouldn't shout that at the TV? lol
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Exactly there would have to be something wrong with the person if they didnt.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
I just read 'Come on then, Let's av it' works pretty well too on the run up ... PMSL
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Yeah I think any over the top action movie quote would work. Hope theres an evac mission where we all have to "Get to the choppa"
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar

Personally I would like to sit down with a nice cuppa and let it all blow over

I've redeemed my code and chosen PS4 Europe. So do I just wait now till I receive an email like I did for the Alpha? Because on the website it says to come back on 17th July, but its still not showing any codes. I think I'm going for Warlock again, as I enjoyed playing that class during the Alpha. I hope they've extended the max level for the beta as it doesn't take long to get to level 8.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
The email codes should be sent out around 6PM, just sit and wait now mate
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
The live stream yesterday didn't show anyone go past 8, although weapons are upgradeable this time
Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 2 years ago
This is going to be a long wait. If only bungie would release the beta earlier.
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
Weapons were upgradable last time. Or do you mean you can buy things to add to them?
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
You can add this time. Bungie showed it off yesterday
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
bungie should have released the beta codes yesterday but blocked playing it till it was time, its a massive download for slow broadband users, luckily I have fibre but if I still had broadband it wouldn't have been done for like 10 hours
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
That would've been a good idea. I hope there's a lot in it for 12/14Gb
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
the alpha was 6.9 I think so 12-14 should have shit loads, as I thought the alpha was good
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
I thought the alpha was fantastic, considering it was an alpha
Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 2 years ago
Are we suppose to delete the Alpha before we download the Beta or does it not make any difference? I agree that they should have given out codes before. My internet is quite slow so by the time I get the code and download it, It will probably be midnight. Which would really annoy me.
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
yes delete the alpha
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
the alpha was fantastic, I could have happily carried on playing it after it finished
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
Does anyone know if the PS3 & PS4 codes will be the same as my mate has a PS3, and I registered for PS4 codes
Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 2 years ago
I plan on paying off my limited edition tomorrow. Thinking about getting into the habit of paying off games so I don't have to worry about the money when the release date comes around.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Same boat here Spear but have the day off tomorrow so all good.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
That's what I do, so it's a small bonus if they drop the price as that's money already towards the next game
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
I pay off all my games, ive paid off the last 30 pre orders on here at least 2 months before release
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
I only have to put £28 towards my LE
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
i like that too, the money that it drops by just goes into your account balance
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
Always pay off my orders well in advance, got everything for the rest of the year all paid for, not sure what games to put my next lot of Amazon vouchers on until I get some more concrete release dates than just 2015.
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
My limited edition is paid for now, and 2 of Octobers games, need to pay for dragon age, and far cry 4 and thas my 2014 done
RTLF's avatar
RTLF 2 years ago
Don't think the PS4 codes can cross over to PS3. They do ask which format and area you want codes for (i.e. PS4, Europe) so presuming the codes you get will only work for those selections. I think the idea of giving you 2 extra is so that you can experience a fireteam even if none of your friends have pre-ordered and got their own beta codes... if that makes sense
Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 2 years ago
I don't think I've ever used the pre pay option before on shopto but after hearing that it works fine I'm going to start using it more often. Helps when you get towards Oct/Nov and all the games are released so close together. @Jay what games have you got pre ordered between now and end of the year?
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
Oh well, I'll give him the codes if it works great, if not meh
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
Other than Destiny, mine is Alien?, Evil Within, Project CARS & Far Cry 4
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
On the forums there is a code exchange thread. So may be an idea to tell your mate to follow that and try the codes put on there
Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 2 years ago
I've got Last of us Remastered, Destiny, Shadow of Mordor, Dragon Age, Far Cry 4. At the moment I don't think there are any other games that I'm interested in before end of the year.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
I'm still slightly undecided about Alien. I'm looking forward to playing it before I decide to buy it, hence the ?
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
I think the reason the lvl cap may be set at 8 again is because last time we started at lvl 4. Bungie said they want us all to "start from square 1"
Spear 25's avatar
Spear 25 2 years ago
I'm not one for scary games (I know I'm a wimp). I can see why people are on the fence with Alien especially after Colonial Marines was such a disaster. I know its not the same studio creating the game but there is still doubt in peoples minds about the game.

can someone actually explain to me why people get tattoos? my personal opinion on the matter is why would i vandalise my body the way someone would vandalise a wall? each to there own though
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
The same reason everyone doesn't wear drab grey jumpsuits with bowlcut haircuts, personal expression.
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
/vandalise my body the way someone would vandalise a wall/ Art is very subjective. Vandalism to one, is a beautiful form of expression to another
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
All about personal preference. And tattooing is probably the oldest form of art there is dating back 1000's of years. I guess it's a marmite thing, you either love it or hate it. Myself, I love it. My skin is/was a blank canvas
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
Everyone's body is a temple. Some people let it fall into decay, others work hard to keep it a certain shape, others adorn it with personalised art. Who are we to judge how anyone else looks after their own temple?
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
A Friday night down the pub and a kebab for afters does more harm to your body than a tattoo Tootell, and I bet you've no objection to that.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 2 years ago
actually i don't drink.. but there was some very valid reasons. Also kaysar i wasn't judging someone i was better trying to understand the reasoning behind tattoos.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Personally I dont mind tattoos but there are some that just look so stupid. Also only 2 more hours.
csrogue's avatar
csrogue 2 years ago
Suppose it depends on the tattoo, artist and canvas. Sometimes they look nice other times not so much. Each to their own though. Variety makes this world bearable after all :)

@ spear from earlier, ive got pre paid, the last of us, Metro Redux, Destiny LE, Alien Isolation, The Evil Within, AC Unity, WWE 2K15, and left to pre pay for is Dragon age inquisition and far cry 4, that's my 2014 sorted, then have a fair few for next year waiting to be pre paid but i wait till release dates are announce before pre paying
jay.hamilton's avatar
jay.hamilton 2 years ago
I lived 30 years with no tattoos, and 4 months ago got my first and second on the same day, then had my third which is a set of 5 mass effect symbols in one last week and a fourth which is an N7 logo, I always thought I would never get tattood but I look at them now and I love em,
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
The ones I dont like are when people get names or Japanese symbols/ letters.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 2 years ago
I do have a Japanese script, but that is getting covered with Poseidon. Going back to Destiny, the Shopto Clan has been set up for those that want to add to it. I think I've done it right, We'll see. Need a minimum of 4 members to appear in game and if anyone can think of a better 4 letter moniker, let me know. Cheers

What does it mean by ''set as playstation clan''? I'm referring to the Shopto group BubbaJai created.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar

Yeah keep getting the maintenance on PSN, they surely had to see this coming.

i got the 180 mb thing then it finished not downloading anything else, and it wont come on, the ps4 thinks its been downloaded

I'm getting really annoyed now. Just typed in my code and now its saying its already been used, I haven't used as when I accept the download the useless store shuts itself. I'm going to try a little bit longer then I'm just going to give up for a few hours. Hopefully less people will be trying later.

Yeah I was sort of expecting it as well, I dont know why they didnt give out the codes in waves before the thing launched.

Once you download the little bit go into it and it will download the remaining 10.97 GB apparently. I am at 0.07 out of 10.97... it may take a while.

At 47% just now, will be interesting to see how well it launches on the xbox one next week.

Proportionately shouldn't be any difference, but the smaller userbase will make it seem less of an issue.

Thats true but as long as the servers hold up to download it then that will be a plus.

I would expect the MS servers to cope better, they generally provide a better service than Sony.

That they do, cant remember last time I had issues with the live servers.
