This weekend, surprise suprise is going to be dedicated to playing the witcher 2. I did the first boss yesterday. Struggled like hell but it was because I drank to many potions before entering the fight so my screen was black and white. I though it was meant to be like that. I then reverted my save and drank just the right potion and did the boss first time. Haven't struggled like that on a boss since lost oddessey

My plans for the weekend are to try and finish off Majora's Mask, but the final dungeon is doing my head in. I've also grabbed myself a Netflix trial and am going to binge watch Daredevil.

Welp. You can get Arkham Knight Premium Edition (Base game & Season Pass) for £25 on PC. It's from CDKeys so it's in the gray area but yeah, cheap

Amazon are now going to lose some custom. From today the new threshold for super saver delivery is £20. eg To buy Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate at £19.85 will now incur postage charges and be a total of £21.88 all because it falls 15p short. If the game was valued at £20, it would be £20 you would pay as it would not incur postage charges. ShopTo are currently selling same game for £19.85 and all that it will cost you is £19.85 and will get first class delivery with high chance of getting it next day. Recent orders I have placed with Amazon on super saver have taken them a week to dispatch as well.

That will now increase the cost of amiibos by £2.03 too, if bought individually.

Or you could just buy something extra to qualify for free shipping

You could even preorder something else then cancel it once you get your Amiibo

Got my PS4 a few hours ago and I've gotta say the PS4s UI is super snappy and quick compared to the Xbox One, most certainly feels like an upgrade, I've only played one game so far which is TLOU which looks decent. I'm goi g to play some Battlefield Hardline on PS4 tonight and sell how badly I am at it due to the PS4s left thumb stick being in a completely different place then the Xbox Ones and Xbox 360s. Gotta bear in mind this is my first ever Playstation console but so far I am very happy with it as it just works.

I have tried preordering items with stuff that was below £10 but they were still not processed / dispatched after a few days and I just thought they were waiting for the preorder item to get in stock and dispatch all items at the same time, so cancelled order and replaced with some other stuff to get value to be £10. This is really skanky though as my main price range of buying stuff is between £10 and £20, so will affect me (and no doubt others) more so, so if this still works then I will be doing it on a lot more orders, and then I bet Amazon will crack down on it. Paying for postage these days is not cool, and selling on ebay they encourage free postage. I would rather pay more for the item than it be wasted in postage. If other smaller online retailers can manage free postage, Amazon certainly should be able to, they are now just being super greedy. I will certainly be buying elsewhere first now, and then use Amazon as last resort. I bet they will sell more amiibos now too, as people will probably buy 2 amiibos instead of 1 just so as not to pay the postage, and will increase the amiibo shortage problem

I'm sure that Amazon still do free 1st class on gaming preorders. Even if they don't just buy a packet of batteries or something

or a Book, or a Blu-ray, or anything. The possibilities are endless

Not many preorders are below £20, but just tested on Wolfenstein Old Blood and in basket it says add more to get free super saver, but then the preorder bonus takes it away in the checkout final screen and gives free 1st class, so that still currently works. I will only add stuff if I want the stuff, I am not adding stuff for the sake of it, and will now wait until I want more stuff to add, or buy from marketplace sellers if costs less. The main problem is when I wait for games to reduce below £20, and they will not be preorders then. It makes no sense, as I am sure Amazon make loads of money from all this, and when I query anything they have done on many occasions immediately offer free or faster postage., when I was not expecting that. I was buying a Region 1 DVD from Amazon.com and the postage was higher than normal, and I was just wondering why, and then they just modified the order for free fast postage which made item arrive in 2 days, rather than weeks.

I have put in 2 complaints to Amazon, and no response yet, which is unlike them. I would have thought I would have gotten back "blah blah blah, Sorry for the inconvenience, I hope you understand our limitations, blah blah blah" but probably because they are being bombarded with tonnes of complaints and do not know how to deal with it yet, and maybe it will get reversed on Tuesday when management comes in and deals with it. Just bought a game from a marketplace seller with FREE postage.

Not sure whether to get Wolfenstein digitally, or wait for retail. With it being single player, I may want to sell it after I have completed it, with digital I can not. Also undecided about Project Cars, whether to get PC and / or Xbox ONE version. Also it does not look like ShopTo are doing the preorder bonus, yet everywhere else seems to, so either they are not saying or they are not doing it. If they are then I will buy from ShopTo, if they are not then I will get elsewhere

I have found my old CD-ROMS of the X-Wing Star Wars games and Rogue Squadron, but does not run on 64 bit Windows 7, although there seems tricks to get it to work, and if I can get it working before the offers expire, then I may not need to buy them. Star Wars Sale on Steam is weird, it says its weekend only and lasts until today, but product pages says May 7th. Seems like they could not find any more sales for the weekend and so included Star Wars. May the 4th Be With You!

So far inviting people to party's/games, sending messages, loading up friends, viewing trophies all just works without issue and does so extreme quickly Compared to the Xbox one were I'm always having to wait for shit to load or it just fails crashes/freezes and it wasn't just my Xbox either it was also did it with my friends Xboxes but it doesn't matter any more as the people i game online with have moved over to PS4 and the ones who ain't are doing so very soon. Sure I'll miss playing a few games like GOW horde and Halo online but that's about it. Im not even fused about losing out on the money that I could of got for the Xbox one as I quite frankly at the time I didn't need it. Also with the PS4 I like the fact that my headset (Astro A40) works perfectly fine without me having to fuck about with the headset adapter, chat cable and Mixamp when I was using with the Xbox one. As for the loudness of the PS4 yeah it is louder while playing games then the Xbox one but it's much quieter/almost slient when in rest mode vs instant on mode with the Xbox One, I also like that with the PS4 that while it is installing a disc it while also download the game update/s at the same time and it can download 4-5 items at a time as opposed to just one. Along with the UI/OS just being very quick ie when a game is running and ya press the home button on the PS4 it instantly loads up the home screen were as on the Xbox One it takes a least a second maybe 1.5 seconds and it's very noticeable and couple that with the fact that when ever trying to (while a game is running) load messages, friends list, view achievements or create/join a party it does so quite slowly, much slower then the Xbox 360 and especially the PS4, then of course pretty much most games graphically look worse on the Xbox one compared to PS4 and that a very know fact, Put all that together and you've got a pretty shit "next gen" exprerince and then put up with all that for just over a year and ya can see why I lost my temper and binned it in frustration. I only kept using the Xbox one as the people who I played online with all had Xbox Ones but slowly one by one (months between) they moved over to Playstation and with another planning on doing soon but also with the monthly updates I thought that the issues with the slowness of the Xbox ones UI/OS would of gotten better/improved but nope it didn't, in fact one of the updates wiped/erased mine and a friends hardline about 6-8 months ago so I have to redownload all of my games which even on 80 Mbps down on Ethernet took a while but at the end of the day I feel like I have upgraded to a much better console as like I've said it's fast, responsive, games look better and most importantly it just works.

Just found our Online was bought and shut down by Sony in the last few weeks - don't think that was covered on here. Obviously to use th technology to help out their PS Now server. Thats crazy, so the 2 main streaming services, Online and Genkai were both bought by sony, shut down and used for their own services - isn't that illegal due to monopoly?
