Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This Weekend? – The Triumphant(?) Return

The Nintendo Switch - guaranteed to help you meet your future soulmate on the bus

The Nintendo Switch – guaranteed to help you meet your future soulmate on the bus

A little while ago a Nintendo Life regular sent us an email to ask where the ‘What Games Are You Playing This Weekend’ (WGAYPTW™) series had gone. Of course, our chums over at Push Square have never stopped doing it, but we drifted away from the series a few years ago here on Nintendo Life.

Why? Partly because it got a bit disheartening. We seemed to be playing retro and ‘other console’ games more than anything else, as Nintendo was in the midst of its ‘oh no what do we do about Wii U’ phase, and the 3DS could only offer so much. And so the series quietly got put on the scrapheap.

Yet times change and, to be fair, anyone with a Switch that can’t find something interesting to play must have insanely particular standards. There are normally 2-3 tempting retail releases every month (many more at this time of the year) and more high quality Switch eShop games than we can keep up with. Let’s not forget the 3DS either, which shouldn’t be cast aside quite yet.

And so it feels like a good time to bring the series back. Assuming enough of you care / bother to comment with your weekend plans we’ll re-introduce this with our staff’s weekly entries. As for this time around, because this writer is completely winging it this one is mostly down to you, our charming community.

I’ll go first person to get us started with my weekend gaming plans. I just bought Wulverblade and it’s terrific, and nice and different from anything else I have on Switch. Since doing an interview with the developer I’m also hugely intrigued by The Flame in the Flood, so I’m going to be a right big-spender and buy that for the weekend. Sure, I could get it on Steam, but the option to play it on the handheld is tempting – to be honest, as a Nintendo fan I also like to try and ‘support’ the eShop anyway, doing my humble part in making the store financially worthwhile for all these incredible indie devs. Beyond that I’ll also play a bit of MLB The Show on PS4, because it’s the post-season and I’m up until 3am (here in the UK) most nights watching baseball. GO CUBBIES!

So, what will you be playing this weekend?

There is certainly A Legend Of Zelda Live performance At The Sydney Opera House Up coming Weekend

In a several days’ time, the live performance hall of the Sydney Opera House will ring yet again with the chords of The Legend of Zelda‘s unforgettable soundtracks for the 1st time in a 10 years. Symphony of the Goddesses is the final result of a shut collaboration amongst the symphony’s creator Jason Michael Paul and Nintendo, and it’s an honest recreation of the original audio of the games — “as 1st-occasion as it will get”, states the producer powering it all.

Jason Michael Paul, probably best regarded in Australia for the Enjoy! A Online video Recreation Symphony series that toured in 2007, is dependable for bringing this Zelda live performance to the Opera House, in which it will operate for two exhibits on Sunday 29 October.

Unsurprisingly, he’s a extensive-time admirer of Zelda. “Like numerous, my journey by The Legend of Zelda began at 10 many years aged with the original gold cartridge and NES. I am specially fond of Majora’s Mask — a activity that has taken on a complete new indicating given that I enjoy it with my 10 calendar year aged daughter. Skyward Sword is a beloved [too] Nintendo requested me to create the 25th Anniversary orchestral CD that was unveiled with the bundle. It was an honor… Breath of the Wild is just simply wonderful.”

Enjoy! experienced some Zelda in it already, but this new live performance is all about Nintendo’s most liked series — it will aspect audio from Skyward Sword and Breath of the Wild as perfectly as the series’ classics like Ocarina of Time. A total orchestra and choir will be accompanied by a “stirring” video clip designed for the functionality. Understandably, Nintendo was “quite palms on” with the output. “When the perform is submitted and revisions (if any) are designed, then we only collaborate further on new submissions. Mr. Kondo and Mr. Aonuma oversee all the things and anything that is executed as portion of The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses — it is as 1st-occasion as it will get.”

There are 3 major factors, the producer-promoter states, in bringing video clip activity soundtracks into actuality by an orchestra like Symphony of the Goddesses will have: “…reimagining the scores to audio wonderful being executed by an orchestra and choir, selecting genuinely proficient humans that are equally as passionate about Zelda as they are about arranging and composing, [and] employing a whole lot of the themes and melodies and earning them audio bombastic and big-sounding.”

Whilst it’s likely that a whole lot of the Zelda orchestral parts will bring about nostalgia and strong recollections in listeners, the live performance may possibly also add a bit of deviation from the original soundtracks into the combine: “you will find a very little bit of both”, states Paul. The series has already operate in Perth and Melbourne. [Sydney Opera House]

Where is Xur? Destiny 2 Xur location this weekend October 6-8 and what the Agent Of The Nine is selling

XUR – the weapon and gift merchant of Destiny and Agent of the Nine – is an essential part of the game and appears each weekend in different regions.

If you’ve been collecting Legendary Shards in Destiny 2 then you need to know where Xur will be to offload them in return for this weekend’s latest goodies. Here’s what we know…

 Xur is lurking in the Reef today  - although there's an unusual lack of weapons on sale
Xur is lurking in the Reef today  – although there’s an unusual lack of weapons on sale

When will Xur appear in Destiny 2?

Xur appeared in Destiny 2 on Friday 6 October and will hang about until Sunday 8 October.

He is exceptionally elusive and only appears at the weekends, which means that he can be quite tricky to track down.

Where is Xur’s location today and what’s Xur selling?

This weekend Xur is located on EDZ in Giant’s Scar, up in the hills.

Long-term Xur fans will know that he usually has a weapon or two to offload and this week fans are anticipating weapons of a high quality up for grabs that can help with the Leviathan raid.

This week Xur has:

  • Vigilance Wing – Pulse Rifle Kinetic Weapon – 29 Legendary Shards
    Foetracer – Hunter Helmet – 23 Legendary Shards
    An Insurmountable Skullfort – Titan Helmet – 23 Legendary Shards
    Nezarec’s Sin – Warlock Helmet – 23 Legendary Shards

What’s the difference between Xur in Destiny 2 and the first game?

In the original Destiny you had to save up Strange Coins in order to purchase any of Xur’s wares.

Happily this system remains almost the same with the sole change that you’ll be collecting Legendary Shards instead of Strange Coins.

In Destiny you could earn Strange Coins by completing special events and activities like Raids and by dismantling any Exotic weapons and armour pieces that you’ve collected and don’t need anymore.

This process remains the same – take part in Raid and Nightfall Strikes in Destiny 2 to gain Legendary Shards.

Worth noting is that Xur is no longer refined to social spaces but can show up in ever more curious spots including planets in Patrol zones.

This weekend’s planned launch of a previously flown SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Kennedy Space Center with a communications satellite has been delayed due to weather and other concerns.

SpaceX was targeting 6:53 p.m. Saturday for the opening of a two-hour launch window at pad 39A, but teams pushed back to no earlier than Wednesday, Oct. 11. A similar launch window is expected.

The delay gives SpaceX more time to prepare the launch vehicle and bypass inclement weather headed for the Space Coast, which will likely be stirred up by a system swirling in the Caribbean.

Tropical Storm Nate is expected to strengthen as it moves across open waters of the Gulf of Mexico and possibly achieve hurricane status as it approaches the United States this weekend, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami.

“Meteorological models are spread and impact the coast anywhere from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle,” Air Force weather forecasters said on Wednesday.

Next week’s mission aims to take EchoStar 105 / SES-11, an 11,000-pound commercial communications satellite, to orbit for eventual coverage of North America, including all 50 U.S. states, parts of Mexico and the Caribbean. Colorado-based EchoStar and Luxembourg-based SES will operate the dual-mission satellite.

The mission marks SpaceX’s third attempt at flying a previously launched, or “flight proven,” booster. It’s expected to land on the “Of Course I Still Love You” drone ship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean shortly after liftoff.

If the landing goes smoothly, the first stage should arrive at Port Canaveral by early-to-mid next week. 

But that’s not the only thing on SpaceX’s plate – the company is also targeting Monday for the launch of a Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. A successful test firing of the rocket’s nine Merlin main engines was initiated Thursday morning, clearing the way for the launch of 10 Iridium NEXT communications satellites.

iPhone 8 Adoption Expectedly Lower After First Weekend of Sales as Customers Await iPhone X

New data shows iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus adoption was lower than previous models over the first three days of availability.


During the first weekend of sales, the devices combined for an estimated 0.7 percent market share of all iPhone models, the lowest since the iPhone 5s in 2013, according to mobile engagement platform Localytics.

With an estimated 0.4 percent market share, the iPhone 8 Plus recorded higher first weekend adoption than any Plus-sized iPhone ever, as demand continues to shift towards the larger 5.5-inch smartphone.


It is important to note the data does not represent actual sales of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, but measures users who have received the devices and started using one of the 37,000 apps integrated with the Localytics SDK.

The slow start for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus is unsurprising, as the type of customers who would rush to purchase a new iPhone during the first weekend are likely waiting for the iPhone X to launch in November.

“Apple is betting big on the iPhone X, and so far it looks like consumers may be doing the same,” said Localytics.

Apple stopped releasing first weekend sales numbers for new iPhone models last year, as demand typically outweighs supply, so the company feels it is no longer a representative metric for investors or customers.

In years past, we’ve announced how many new iPhones had been sold as of the first weekend following launch. But as we have expanded our distribution through carriers and resellers to hundreds of thousands of locations around the world, we are now at a point where we know before taking the first customer pre-order that we will sell out of iPhone 7.

These initial sales will be governed by supply, not demand, and we have decided that it is no longer a representative metric for our investors and customers. Therefore we won’t be releasing a first-weekend number any longer.

iOS 11’s estimated 22 percent adoption is also lower than previous versions through the first six days of availability.


These numbers may or may not be completely accurate, but together with shorter lines reported at Apple retail stores on iPhone 8 launch day, there is an overall sense there will be overwhelming demand for the iPhone X.

Samsung boasts of ‘record’ first weekend sales

SAMSUNG HAS OFFICIALLY LAUNCHED the Galaxy Note 8, its big-screened flagship for 2017.

Naturally, Samsung has been keen to extinguish the controversy surrounding last year’s Galaxy Note 7, which was binned following reports of handsets catching on fire and exploding. The Note 8’s battery, it claims, has undergone rigorous testing to ensure it isn’t hit by a similar scandal.

Related: Galaxy S9 price, release date and specs

If you’re looking to pick up a Galaxy Note 8, we’ve rounded everything we know about its UK availability below. You can also check out our full Galaxy Note 8 review. 

Release date
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 went on sale in the UK just moments after its unveiling and started shipping on 15 September – the same day that iPhone 8 pre-orders are tipped to begin.

Some early buyers reported that their Galaxy Note 8 arrived ahead of Samsung’s promised 15 September date. Punters in the US who have ordered the smartphone via Samsung, Best Buy, Verizon and Sprint reported early shipments, but UK retailers didn’t appear to follow suit.

The Galaxy Note 8 has been quick pre-order records too, according to Samsung. “More people in the US have purchased the Galaxy Note 8 than previous Samsung Note phones during the same time period,” the company said, albeit failing to mention how many handsets it has managed to flog. 

Price
Samsung’s own website is, naturally, selling the Galaxy Note 8. The smartphone, along with a dual-SIM variant, can both be picked up for £869 SIM-free.

Carphone Warehouse is offering the Galaxy Note 8. It’s on sale for £869 SIM-free, and the retailer is also offering handset on tariffs with EE, iD, O2 and Vodafone, with prices starting from £56 per month for a 24-month contract with 10GB monthly data. It’s also throwing in a free DeX station worth £139.99.

EE, who offered a free DeX dock to those who ordered before 14 September, is stocking the Note 8. The firm is recommending its £62.99 per month tariff, which comes with 15GB data and an upfront cost of £49.99. 

Over on the O2 website, the Galaxy Note 8 can be picked up for £49.99 on a choice of £56, £66, £76 and £96 (!) tariffs, which come with 3GB, 10GB, 30GB or 50GB monthly data.

Three is offering the Note 8 with 1GB data for £48 per month (with a £99 upfront cost), 12GB data for £56 per month (£79 upfront) and 100GB data for £64 per month (£79 upfront). 

Virgin Media’s mobile arm is stocking the Note 8 and is offering it for free from £43 a month with 1.2GB monthly data. This can be increased to 6GB for £49 per month, or 16GB for £52 per month. 

Vodafone, finally, is also offering Note 8. Prices start from £44 a month with a £300 upfront cost, which gets you 500MB data and 500 minutes per month. If you’re after more data, Vodafone is offering 16GB and 32GB for £60 and £66 a month, respectively, with a £50 upfront cost. 

If you’re looking to pick up the Galaxy Note 8 in the US, it’s available from Samsung, Best Buy, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.

– 6.3in 1440×2160 Super AMOLED curved Infinity Display with 18.5:9 ratio
– S Pen support
– 163mmx75mmx8.6mm

Latest news
20/9/17:
Samsung has today announced that the Galaxy Note 8 sold in “record numbers” over its first weekend on sale, making it the firm’s most successful Note device launch to date. The firm has yet to cough on sales figures, though. 

18/9/17: Samsung is finally allowing Note 8 users, along with owners of the Galaxy S8 and S8+, to disable the handset’s Bixby button. This comes after users complained that they found themselves accidentally summoning the virtual assistant, while others questioned the lack of a need for a physical shortcut to Bixby Home, which can be accessed by swiping right on the screen. The software update is starting to roll out to devices now, SamMobile reports, but there’s no word yet as to whether Samsung will allow users to remap the button. 

23/8/17: The Galaxy Note 8 is official, and it has few surprises in store. There’s a 6.3in QHD+ AMOLED Infinity display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio at the forefront of the Galaxy Note 8 and, unsurprisingly, and this comes with support for Samsung’s new-and-improved S Pen which supports a finer tip and better pressure sensitivity.

The S Pen also comes with a new ‘Screen Off Memo’ feature that lets users doodle on the display while it’s switched off, while Live Message allows users to scribble animated doodles and easily turn into a GIF. 

Looks wise, the Galaxy Note 8 sports the same metal and glass chassis as that first seen on the Galaxy S8. It boasts the same IP68 resistance against water and dust, and unlike the iPhone X, both fingerprint sensor and iris scanners for unlocking the device. 

Under the hood, in the UK at least, you’ll find Samsung’s homegrown Exynos 8895 processor, which comes paired with 6GB RAM and 64GB built-in storage, which can be expanded up to 256GB via the built-in microSD slot. There’s also a 3,300mAh battery, and Samsung has been keen to point out that this has gone through rigorous testing and probably won’t, er, explode.

alt=''

This supposedly fire-proof battery comes with support for both fast charging via USB-C and wireless charging baked-in. 

Camera-wise, there’s a dual 12MP sensor setup on the rear of the phone, which packs Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) on both the wide-angle lens and the telephoto lens. There’s also an 8MP camera on the front, which offers both OIS and optical zoom. 

Despite the recent launch of Android Oreo, the Galaxy Note 8 runs Android 7.0 Nougat, which comes topped in Samsung’s usual custom user interface. Bixby, unsurprisingly, is included and can be accessed via the smartphone’s dedicated Bixby button.

Samsung DeX support is also included, when means when the Galaxy Note 8 is docked, it will offer a desktop experience. 

At launch, the Galaxy Note 8 will be available in Midnight Black and Maple Gold colour variants in the UK. There’s talk that two additional colours, Orchid Grey and Deepsea Blue, will be made available at a later date. µ

Xbox One X Preorder Information Is Coming This Weekend

Preorder details about Microsoft’s vaunted Xbox One X, a souped-up version of its Xbox One games console due this November and designed to play games with breathtaking 4K fidelity, are coming this weekend, says Microsoft. The company says it’ll spill the beans about how to get your mitts on the device in the lead up to Europe’s annual Gamescom game show, this Sunday, at 3:00 p.m. ET.

Microsoft’s official Xbox Twitter account just tweeted the news alongside a teaser trailer for its Gamescom lineup, as well as a link to an Xbox Wire brief detailing some of its trade show plans.

Microsoft first confirmed the new Xbox One’s existence at E3 2016, codenamed “Project Scorpio,” then unveiled its official “Xbox One X” name and $499 price tag a few months ago at E3 2017. The super-games-console offers 6 teraflops of GPU compute power, 12 gigabytes of DDR5 memory and boasts games capable of running at native (as opposed to approximate) 4K resolutions. Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro, which arrived last November, offers notably slower (though still quite powerful) performance for $399, or $100 less.

“There is no power greater than X,” said Xbox boss Phil Spencer during Microsoft’s big E3 2017 press event. “It’s the most powerful console ever made.”

As I wrote then: “But if the battle in the 4K graphics space is currently about chasing enthusiast wallets, Microsoft is positioning Xbox One X as a box that justifies the extra outlay with raw specs capable of delivering much more than Sony’s product to videophiles and 4K connoisseurs. If the narrative around the Xbox One and PlayStation 4’s debut in 2013 centered on the PlayStation 4’s superior specs, today’s show was Microsoft taking the ball back … Xbox One X will also make existing Xbox One games look better and load faster, uses a liquid-cooled vapor chamber to tame its doubtless nutty thermals (a first for a console) and still somehow winds up being the smallest Xbox console the company’s made, including the Xbox One S.”

The Xbox One X will be available on November 7, worldwide.

For Honor Is Free This Weekend On The PlayStation 4

PlayStation 4 owners who have a PlayStation Plus membership will be able to try out Ubisoft’s For Honor this weekend completely free of charge, but the deal will only be active for a limited time.

The timing of the trial version of For Honor lines up with the start of Season III that is set to begin on Aug. 15. With the free trial running from Aug. 10-13, it gives players just enough time to build up some progression and decided if they want to continue that momentum with the paid version.

According to a post from Ubisoft communications specialist Chris Watters, the full game and all its game modes and characters will be included in the trial.

“This is the full game, mind you — the whole kit and caboodle, Watters wrote over on the PlayStation Blogs. “It’s all of the intense multiplayer action across five modes, as well as the entire campaign (playable solo or in online co-op) that immerses you in the age-old war among the Knights, the Vikings, and the Samurai. Every map and every hero will be available as you take up arms and test your skills in the innovative melee combat system.”

For those players who are just now taking their first trip into the For Honor fray, the post also listed several tips and tricks to help out newcomers. A practice mode and a couple of how-to videos that are included in-game for each character are absolutely tools that players should take advantage of since PvP is the core part of this game, and those players who you’ll be facing won’t care if you’re a newbie or a returning brawler.

The ledges are also a hot debate point in For Honor, precarious edges that result in some quick death for anyone who gets pushed off the edge, regardless of their health. A cheap move? Perhaps. But being aware of environmental hazards is important in For Honor for a very good reason, and getting kicked off a cliff is just as much of a threat as it is a viable win condition.

If you should enjoy the free look at the game, players will be able to buy the game for 50 percent off between August 10-20. The third season of For Honor will begin on Aug. 15 with new heroes, so practice your combat skills now in preparation for more ranked duels and other season changes.
