The Weekly Recap (August 9-15)


It’s been a somewhat slow week. Now that I have this new layout for the Weekly Recaps, it takes just a little longer for me to make it :P. I’m also going to show off trailers, after you go to the comment section, for interesting new releases this week, such as Blu-Ray, theater and games. Well, anyway, without boring you guys to death, here’s the Recap for this week:

For the week, we only netted in 26 submissions (excluding QuickNews, Mockers news and Community news). As far as ‘Contributor of the Week’ goes, that is awarded to Thepreppymonk with 5 submissions. Good going! I was one post short of keeping my streak (though tied with you) :P.

Other than that, we got a few more bits of info for the community. First off, let me congratulate Kicks on winning the $20 PSN Giftcard! If you haven’t done so already, check your email inbox for the code! Also, just to get it out there, if you use Life with PlayStation, be sure to join the blog’s group (55054) and help with the project!

We also got, yet, another Giveaway! This will only be available to those who live near NYC (or will be able to be there) to attend a Need for Speed Press Event (2 free passes)! The event will take place August 27th. For contest information, click here.

Wolfenstein (August 18th)
Smash Cars (August 20th – PSN Only)

As you can see, not much going on for the most part. This week, though, we should see a huge spike in news due to Europe’s biggest convention, GamesCom. Just for clarification, Sony has a press release on the 18th (Tuesday) that will last about an hour to an hour and a half (it was said to be 3 hours before, but there probably was a lack of communication there). Will we see these speculations and rumors prove true? Or will what everyone’s been thinking just wind up being false hopes? I guess this is the week we find out! Check the comments section for trailers of some of this week’s Games and Movies.

    @ Tosh:
    Thanks! I keep adding things to it though lol.

    @Thepreppymonk:
    lol, but keep in mind, we had a lot fewer posts this week and news was relatively dry, so I couldn’t find much to post about lol. I have an idea for an off topic article that I’ll probably do tomorrow since Sundays rarely have news anymore.
