Nothing much planned for the weekend, play some Tomodachi Life and a bit of Mega Man, might give Child of Light another stab, but I'm finding it really tedious. Not buying any eshop games this week for a change, saving my money as there's Steamworld Dig next week which looks good, and Cubemen 2 the week after which has cross platform play, so I'll give that a go too.

Happy Birthday. On a different note, with regards to yesterday, I'd just like to add that I have far too much going on in my life which is much more important than gaming to worry about which console is better than which. I can promise you that I couldn't really care less. People saying I'm biased can think what they like, but they are 100% wrong. If you don't believe me fine, I'll just keep doing what I do anyway. There are more important things in life than childish name calling and saying who likes what console better. At the end of the day it's not really that important anyway.

Happy Birthday for tomorrow, Bindiana. Plans for the weekend are sparse, atm. At a friend's tonight for some PVZ, and Monday going to my dad's to watch the football (he's a Liverpool fan, I'm City). Otherwise I'll probably be hitting Crusader Kings 2. May give PT/Silent Hills a third run through. Had two mates over last night playing it and after the first jumpy bit (no spoilers) my mate playing it screamed and instantly passed the controller on, shaking in his seat for a good 30 seconds afterwards and moaning about the "stupid f**king game". Ah, good times

Well said Joe, as ive always said myself, enjoy your machine, whatever it is and be happy, ive chose mine, will get the other at some point too

Joe2120 2 years ago
I have all the machines, yet apparently I hate two of them, which is not the case at all. But oh well. I even bought Xbox 360 on launch day, strange for someone who hates it so much.

Had a quick look through the thread in question, Joe, alas people are always going to perceive what they want to perceive. As I think you eloquently pointed out, Xbox has brought a lot of negativity to itself this time around, but last gen it was clearly the pack leader and most of the stories I read online were about the Xbox, then. This time round it's the PS4. It's like accusing football journalists of favouring Manchester City this season because they're covering more news stories on them than Manchester United. That's simply because City won the title last year and United fell by the wayside a little. It could all change hands next year/next generation of consoles/etc. But some people won't spot that. Also, calling out your personal life (your twitter account) as a means to get you sacked in your professional life is uncalled for. Even if you were clearly biased in your personal life, if you left that at the door in your professional life it shouldn't matter. Just my 10 cents.

Ohhh missed a right barney on here yesterday by the sounds of it will have a read through it now. Kaysar your football analogy doesnt make sense cause everyone knows they should be talking about Liverpool! especially now when it looks like we have signed Mario looks so bad on telly. But on a serious note fanboyism can get way out of hand.

"Even if you were clearly biased in your personal life, if you left that at the door in your professional life it shouldn't matter. Just my 10 cents. ” - Exactly, although my twitter account is generally used to wind people up / be sarcastic. It's a shame there is no sarcasm button on there :D

Going to download Fire Emblem on the Wii U as I have never played it & plat Tales of Xillia 2. Tried playing F.E.A.R last night but I couldn't get over the controls so I finally loaded up Lone Life The Queen and I must say the the game was a great little distraction, planing on playing some more over the weekend (Gonna try to get Kidnapped)

I'm happy it looks like Mario is coming back to the Premier League. Now I can enjoy his antics without the fear of the inevitable red cards he brings ;-)
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 2 years ago
Haha I am not sold on him I understand having him as a character in the premier league but dont rate him that highly and after Suarez we could of done with a little more low key player.
Kaysar's avatar

"dont rate him that highly" Only player I know to have intentionally scored with his shoulder :P I get your concerns and I agree with you. I wouldn't want him back at City.
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 2 years ago
We got an hour half to get him signed so he can play in the big game on Monday but cant see us getting anything as we dont seem to do well in Monday night games. Think City will win easily on Monday.

well i missed all yesterdays comotion , but i bought a 360 on day one, had an xbox before that, was with microsoft for 10 years, then bought a ps3 last year, 2 months later shop to delivered my ps4, I chose PS4 because microsoft fu**ed up and i didnt agree with what was going on, and most news i see from microsoft seems a bit dodgy, so does that make me biased because I say what I see

Just read through the thread did make me chuckle the Trading Standards bit was priceless. never know someone get so riled up about something so little. Was it the same guy having a pop at Joe on the Infamous review?

I think ballotelli is the perfect striker for a 4-3-3 if that's the way Rodgers wants to go. He can collect the ball however you want to give it to him. He is cracking with his feet and he also isn't afraid to use his head. I think the hardest decision is how to accommodate coutiniho who has looked lethal in pre season but with the options of ballotelli coutiniho Sturridge and sterling who is going to be played out of position or dropped to the bench? I think we might see coutiniho as an active central midfielder Jordan Henderson will be his box to box with gerrard being his defensive cover. If they do move coutiniho to a central position will it leave them exposed at the back? Also sterling has shown he isn't just limited to the wing and can play in a central role.

I've always though balo was built for the prem and he has made the right decision going to Liverpool (if he does) a lot of his fiascos at city wasn't helped by the manager. Mancini was always publicly criticising his players where as Rodgers is different he won't take any shit but if anything does happen he is the first ne to go out and publicly defend his players. I think that will be crucial in keeping balo on the right track to becoming one of the most prolific strikers in the league. He could of done it at city but let's be honest the strike power at city's disposal he was never the top of the pecking order.

For 16 million its not to much of a gamble as if he flops should be able to get 10-12 million back and considering the prices being bounded about for people like Cavani and Falcao he seems good value for money. If you look at it another way we are upgrading Borini to Balotelli for 2 million as presume the Borini deal will go through now.

Also got Lallana and Markovic to accommodate somewhere think it could be big years for Coutinho and Sterling.

I think lallana might be used as an impact sub to start off with. I can't see him starting many in the next 6 months. Then again I might be wrong. Liverpool have spent the Suarez money really well in strengthening the overall squad but I still think there is abit of depth that needs to be added to the defence. I think they've done better with the Suarez money than they did with the Torres money though lol. Or what Tottenham did with the bale money.

How did you know about my weekend name Gloria? Toots we could improve out defence greatly by stopping Johnson playing he is useless. Not sure what to expect this season dont think we will be in the title race this year think we will be scrapping it out for 4th.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 2 years ago
first season back in european football so yeah i think 3rd/4th is a realistic target.

The best thing about Balo signing is Liverpool now have a plan 1, 2, 3 and 4 that they can put out and Rodgers will happily do it. 4231, 433, 4222, 41212(main) and even 352 with Markovic, Lallana, Can, Coutinho etc all in that mix. Think the main stays to the starting team will be Sterling and Henderson. The rest are all good enough to mix.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar

The top 4 will be the same this season with Spurs being 5th imo. Liverpool 3rd. Manquillo has settled in alright and I think someone to take Skrtels place is all we need back there. Sakho and Lovren, if he can play rcb, would be perfect.

It does not include PS3 or Xbox 360 either. PS4 is like cable/satellite with its many channels "Loads of channels but nothing on!" For PS4 replace "channels" with "games" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5scpDev1qps
