Thursday Chat: July 24


It's Thursday and still not a lot is happening in the world of gaming, however with it being August next month, there is at least something to look forward to.


Gamescom hits next month, while we are also happy to see some new games roll into town, with The Last of Us: Remastered, Diablo III: Ultimate Edition, Minecraft for PS Vita and PS4 and more. Wait, did we say new games?

So what are you looking forward to most next month?

Let's Chat!

Next month? Bugger all really, September is when new games start hitting, until then I'll be sticking with Tomodachi Life and Mario Kart and the odd digital title from the eshop. Master reboot has caught my fancy this week, from the video it has a Killer 7 type of vibe to it. https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Wii-U-download-software/Master-Reboot-906469.html

Next month is quite a busy month for me with Last of Us and Tales of Xillia 2 and want to play Diablo III but might wait till that drops in price as the other 2 will keep me busy with Mario Kart and Tomodachi life.

Tomodachi Life is ace, I've given all my islanders Borscht or Brussel Sprouts for breakfast today.

Well my islanders this morning seemed to get out on the wrong side of bed as two arguments already and neither accepted the apology.

Love it when they have arguments, especially serious ones where they go all on fire, I waited ages for my Skeletor Mii to have one just so I could dress him up in leather and take a photo of him as Ghost Rider.

I've no new game plans on the horizon until September, and only two then. Probably best I use that time to catch up on uni work and save for the stag do I'm on in October. The Last of Us is a game I'd like to pick up again, but I've no plans to rush out and buy it just yet. Also, just pre-ordered a game and noticed ShopTo automatically shared my order with Facebook and Twitter. Unimpressed by that

Tales of Xillia 2 has me all kinds of excited, but because I'm getting the collector's edition I probably shouldn't be considering purchasing any other new releases in August...

seems to be the hipster thing now for the younger generation to not care about graphics.

Some of us have been not caring about graphics since they weren't worth caring about.

Pilotwings and Metroid are OK if they're cheap enough, wouldn't pay more than a fiver each.

There is the Hyper Japan event at Earls Court this weekend 25-27th July, and Nintendo will have a playable version of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Not sure what else will be playable, but they say "Nintendo set to showcase latest Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games at HYPER JAPAN" http://hyperjapan.co.uk/play-the-latest-nintendo-titles-at-hyper-japan-2014/

"DoA Dimensions is great Nox, definitely worth a fiver, last good DoA" - Not with that broken online multiplayer and variable framerate it isn't.

Don't care about Multiplayer since I suck at fighters but the second point is an issue

I highly recommend Project X Zone for the 3DS. I've been addicted to it ever since I got it earlier this week. Can be found sub £20 too

"Don't care about Multiplayer since I suck at fighters but the second point is an issue" - Leave the 3D off and it's mostly fine, and if multi is a non-factor then I'd say it's worth the price, but it probably won't last too long. "Dead or alive was fun but I would say 4 was still the best." - Would agree, but 5 Ultimate was much better than 5 vanilla version I thought. Puts it at least on par with 4 imo.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
Would maybe give ultimate a try then. Last fighter I really enjoyed was Mortal Kombat was so disappointed with Soul Calibur 5 though. Yeah that was what kept me going to the end Kaysar.

Oreshika is getting destroyed by Japanese players on Amazon 2/5 stars all because of one character in the game, goddess Nueko. Still buying it though. Not sure what i'm looking forward to next month, Disgaea 4 on Vita maybe? I haven't played the original version.
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
kevin talking bollocks as usual, there's nothing wrong with the multiplayer or framerate on DoA Dimensions.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Still buying Oreshika when it comes over here as the art is beyond beautiful & the slamming it is getting is mainly from people who played the first one (Never did so I'm golden)
Baiken_'s avatar
Baiken_ 2 years ago
Never played the original either so i can't wait to play it along with Freedom Wars. I doubt we'll be seeing a physical copy now with Oreshika which is a shame as were getting a physical copy of Freedom Wars.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 2 years ago
I do have to agree with Kevin a bit there were some frame rate issues when i played it but not that bad. Had a look at oreshika and the idea sounds quite good shame there might nit be a physical release. Disgaea 4 has been the best one in a while so i would recommend it.
