The Weekly Recap (November 1-7)


It’s been a relatively busy week! Folks have been getting ahold of the God of War III demo and enjoying it, lots of controversy over Modern Warfare 2 (in which we had to have broken a site record for :P), a PS3 exclusive beta for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 this month, and Netflix has finally come to the PS3. There’s some huge releases in games coming up over the next couple months, so most of our wallets will be drained.

That’s also going to bleed into next year with big name exclusives such as Heavy Rain and God of War III. Makes you think that 2009 was the buffer for the 2010 year, which looks like it’s shaping up to be the true year of the PS3, what, coming off of a recent price cut, new model and a big back catalog of other great PS3 exclusive titles?

For starters, there was some big news this week, but we only got in 20 news articles. Blackstaffer’s Modern Warfare 2 article had the biggest growth in a short period of time I’ve ever seen on this site! It’s currently sitting at 117 comments, of which, 115 are from the 4th, hitting number one on N4G’s PS3 page.

Also of note, there have been a couple changes to the side bar. I mentioned last week the change done to the Poll area. Not sure if I overlooked this or not before, but we also combined Recent Comments and Recent Posts into the same subsection of the sidebar, which means less clutter.

We also held a contest for a free code for the God of War III demo. Only 5 people met the qualifications, and after randomly drawing a name, YODADDY won! I hope you’re enjoying it and congratulations!

Also added between last night and this morning is a new tab up top for Reviews, so you don’t have to go to the Archives section and look for it through there. We will also be getting a Guides tab up top as well, when I do my Guide/Review of the PS3 Netflix service this week. If anyone is interested, keep an eye out for that. Now for the recognitions:
