Thursday Chat: January 15


It's Thursday.



There's not really a lot going on in terms of gaming news or new releases, although we did have Nintendo Direct yesterday. So what did you think? Are you looking forward to the New 3DS or XL? Which one if any are you planning to pick up?

What else grabbed your attention?

Let's Chat!

I already have the new 3DS Ambassador edition, but not yet opened as thought it was going to be XL sized, as thought it was the only one, and still deciding whether to keep it or return it and get the Majoras Mask XL one next month. Nintendo have been very confusing lately, and in the US they are apparently not getting the standard one. I may still keep the standard one as the screen is still bigger than the original 3DS, and you can change the cover plates, so hoping they will release a Zelda cover plate, which will compensate for not getting the Majoras Mask new 3DSXL or any limited edition console.

You'd have to be pretty stupid to think a 3DS without XL in the title was an XL.

I thought they abandoned the regular size (which they have done in the US) and the new 3DS was the size of the XL, therefore no need for the XL in the title, *new* = XL. If they released another *new* 3DS in the future with bigger screen then it could have had the XL

Today begins the Evolve Open Beta, I am surprised no news on it - "Once again, it’s time to hunt together – or kill alone. Welcome to the Evolve Xbox One Open Beta! In about a month, Evolve will launch! However, you won’t need to wait until February 10th for this new taste of what Evolve is like. You’re invited to join us in the next round of testing for Evolve with the Xbox One Open Beta. Starting Thursday, January 15th, 9am PST we will need your help once again. Fans will be able to play Evolve’s “Hunt” game mode with access to the first two monsters (Goliath and Kraken) and first eight hunters (Markov, Maggie, Val, Hank, Hyde, Griffin, Lazarus, and Bucket) across all 12 maps that support “Hunt” and are included at the time of launch. EXCLUSIVE TO XBOX ONE – Any character unlocks you achieve during the Beta will carry over to the game when it launches on February 10th. Get a head start on the defense of Shear by playing as much as you can in the beta. Have you already prepurchased or plan to prepurchase the game digitally on Xbox One? You will get early access to the third set of Hunters, Wraith AND those unlocks carry over to the game when it launches on February 10th! And, Starting on January 17th at Noon PST, you’re among the first to play Evolve’s dynamic campaign, “Evacuation.” If you’re not familiar with Evacuation, it’s a dynamic campaign combining modes, maps, and victory effects that provides over 800,000 paths to glory. It gives you a ridiculous amount of variety and a different experience almost every time you play. (For more information – and videos – you should check out this story for a full breakdown of how it works.) How do you get in? First, you’ll need an active Xbox Live Gold membership. The Evolve Open Beta will be listed in the Xbox Games Store. Once you navigate to the product page (via search or following a link), click to download the Beta. Once downloaded, it will be in your Game Library and ready for battle on January 15th. As part of this beta, we want to continue to stress test the servers and need your help to do it – so at 2pm PST on Saturday January 17th, we need as many people as possible to be online and playing Evolve. So tell your friends, spread the word and have them join the fight for Shear! Happy Hunting. -The Evolve team at Turtle Rock Studios and 2K"

Yeah a link would of done. Surprised there is still interest in the game didnt enjoy the alpha. With all the dodgy stories coming out recently about the game like Xbox one owners not having to grind as much and the expensive season pass that doesnt give you a lot in my mind.
