@get2sammyb: Not yet as @sinalefa said not till November. I am surprised you didnt get the MK 8 bundle when it was available or wasn't that one available in the UK?

I would keep my eye out for holiday bundles Sammy you can get some great deals with those.

I have no complaints with the Wii U especially when a few of my coworkers come over for our weekly game night, the Wii U always seems like our go to couch co-op system. :D

Tasuki commented on Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weeke...:

Here is what I will be playing in between work this weekend.

DS -Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin- Just about to wrap this game up just in time for Halloween.

Wii U -Mario Kart 8- I have been having the itch to play this game again so it looks like I will be hitting the race track this weekend.

PC -World of Warcraft- The preexpansion stuff is out now and its time to start going after the Iron Horde.

That's probably it for now if anything changes I will of course add it on later.
Hope you all have a great weekend. :D

Tasuki commented on Talking Point: Do You Ever Stump Up for Season...:

The only time I bought season passes is for the WWE games (mostly for all the roster additions like Paige will be for WWE 2K15) and Telltale's The Walking Dead. I usually just wait for a GOTY edition like I did for Borderlands and Arkham City to come out.

Tasuki commented on Could Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas HD Be on t...:

Honestly I would rather see an updated version of Vice City rather then San Andreas. I can understand the reason behind SA because its the same city as GTA V.
I could never get into SA personally and enjoyed the characters and ciy alot more in VC. I am hoping that GTA 6 will be a return trip to VC since GTA IV had a revamped Liberty City and GTA V had a revamp SA. Its time now for a revamp Vice City.

Tasuki commented on Wild Season Is the PS4 and Vita Harvest Moon T...:

I am such a sucker for these types of games. My favorite Haverst Moon games was Save the Homeland on PS2. It would have been nice if Story of Seasons (The new name for the Harvest Moon series) would come to PS4 but I guess it's their lost. I will be checking out this game for sure. I really enjoy games like this just to take a break from ultra serious games like GTA V.

@dustinquickfire: Cheers mate the game looks like it will be a great one.

Tasuki commented on You'll Be Able to Play Dead or Alive 5 for Fre...:

I never could really get into Dead or Alive the only reason I played it back in the PSone days I think it was, was because it had the reemergence of Ryu from Ninja Gaiden in it and since I didn't own an Xbox.

Still I think I will wait till MK X comes to PS4 for my fighting game fix unless by some chance Capcom releases SFIV on the PS4. :D

Tasuki commented on The First of November's Free PS4 PlayStation P...:

I am really enjoying alot of the games that PS+ has to offer. People say that they need to offer AAA games like Knack or Thief but honestly there are a bunch of games that play and even feel like an AAA game. Games like Dust, Resogun, Strider just to name a few and others that are great games as well like Splunky and Velocity.

Honestly I think that people that are complaining are just tired of video games in general and just need to find something else to do.

Besides how can you complain for something you get for free?

Well due to work tomorrow and birthday celebrations today, not too much gaming for me this weekend might sneak in the following

DS — Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin — Still continuing with my retro Halloween marathon.

PS4 --Dust: An Elysian Tale — Hopeing to finish the story on this one this weekend then I can go trophy hunting.

PC — Heroes of the Storm — Blizzards entry into the world of MOBAs. Been playing this one for a few months off and on and it is a really fun game. Great too when you don't have alot of time to game since the battles are quick.

Tasuki commented on Guide: How to Take off Your Training Wheels in...:

@Dodoo: I only played PGR and PGR 4. I didn't own an Xbox but my friend did and almost every time I went over to his place we would play PGR. I just recently picked up PGR 4 about six months ago for the 360 and its one of my favorite racing games. That's why I had high hopes for this game I need a racing game like PGR on my PS4.

Tasuki commented on Guide: How to Take off Your Training Wheels in...:

@get2sammyb: I still have high hopes for this game being a PGR fan. I have never been a big GT fan just too much to worry about I just want a game that I can race in.

I guess this was one of the moment that you are damned if you do and damned if you don't for the publishers. If they would have delayed the release again they would have people complaining about that so instead they released a broken game.

Tasuki commented on Review: Dust: An Elysian Tail (PlayStation 4):

@rjejr: Its available on Xbox 360, and PC via steam and GOG.com as well.

Another great indie title. I played through this game a bit on the PC before my vid card blew up so glad that it came out on the PS4 so I can finish this great game.

Honestly if you have a PS+ sub you would be a fool not to at least give this game a try.

Tasuki commented on DriveClub v1.03 Patch Begins to Put PS4 Racer ...:

@Midzark: That's how I feel too. I am wondering if due to the sub par reviews they got they figured that the wont get the sales they thought they would so they are trying to get as much for it now as they can.

Still I wont pay full price for this game I will wait till either it hits the bargain or th PS+ version is out or I find a cheap used copy.

Going to be focusing on the following games this weekend

DS — Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin: Continuing with my Retro Halloween game marathon. I finished Bloodlines last week so now I am starting on its sequel

Xbox 360 — Mortal Kombat: Finally got this game so now I can see what all the hype is before MK X comes out

PS4 — Dust: An Elysian Tale: Beautiful game and one of the best indie games around. If I can get my son off of Dust long enough I will be starting this one back up

PC — World of Warcraft: One more character to get to 90 for an achievement before the expansion next month.

Tasuki commented on Feature: Why Do Next-Gen Games Keep Disappoint...:

@ShogunRok: I agree with you there. I don't know what it is this gen but people it seems is just assuming to much from these games and as the say goings you know what happens when you assume....

People are expecting too much from these games and set themselves up for disappointment. I mean so many people read reviews and see that a game gets a 7/10 and they act like its a real stinker. I could understand if its a 4/10 but a 7??? That's still better then average. Games like Destiny I guess people were expecting some grand Halo clone where as what they got was an MMO which not to many console gamers are familiar with. All the complaints I here are just normal for an MMO. Grind grind grind.

On the other side of the page though the indies games are totally kicking arse. Games like Resogun, Velocity 2X, Dust, and Splunky are keeping me busy on my PS4.

In the end I dont regret my purchase and I honestly think the people that are disappointed in the PS4 I think are just burnt on video games and perhaps should find something else to occupy their time.

Tasuki commented on Surprise, Surprise! PS4's Likely Getting a Gra...:

@mitcHELLspawn: I love systems bundled with games. It reminds me of getting my NES with Super Mario Bros/Duckhunt, my SNES with Super Mario World and my Genesis with Sonic 2. Man those were the days :D

I always thought that companies should have bundled games with their systems. It disappointed me that they no longer do since the N64/PS era.

Tasuki commented on Round Up: DriveClub PS4 Reviews Target Pole Po...:

Obviosuly there is some delay to the PS Plus version of Drive Club. Sony hasn't said why yet but I am sure as soon as Sammy and the gang hear what's going on they will post an article. Until then just stay calm guys and play some Dust, Splunky or that cat game that I dont remember the name of now.

Well its that time of the year. A few of us on Nintendolife started a yearly tradition where every October we play some retro horror type games

http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/retro/the_haunted_house_of_spooky_and_scary_retro_classics?start=200

I started last night with Castlevania Bloodlines on the Genesis. Hopefully I will finish that one up tonight and then begin on its sequel Portrait of Ruin on the DS.

Tasuki commented on Feature: What Are October 2014's Free PlayStat...:

I am looking forward to Dust for sure. One of the most gorgeous games to come out last gen. I was planning to pick it up anyway for PS4 especially since my computer died and I can't play it on that anymore. :( If anyone enjoys metroidvania type games then they should pick this one up.

On the PS3 Front Chronicles of Mystara is a great game and what makes this version so great are the house rules you can implement in the game adding ton of replayability factor. Also the fact that it has four player co-op both online and off its a great multiplayer game. I got this game a few months ago on the Wii U and I have to say its one of the best purchases I made.
