The Weekly Recap (December 13-19)


There was a lot of buzz this week concerning the PlayStation Network and the mysterious “Premium Subscription” service that’s been hinted at for a few weeks now. Eddie’s post concerning a survey that went out solidifies what it’s supposed to be, assuming it’s the real deal. There’s actually quite a bit there and some of it is even cooler than what Live has (such as 1 hour of playtime on New Releases to the PlayStation Store and Store discounts in general). Other than that, we also got a few Final Fantasy bits in there as well, and some cool videos for other games and features. Also, be sure to check out Darrin’s opinion pieces, which I, myself, enjoy reading (it’s like his trademark, almost like Blackstaffer’s rants :P).

Oh yeah, and if you enjoy reading stuff on this site, be sure to subscribe to the new YouTube channel. I’m always throwing up new trailers on there (most in HD), and we were the first channel to host the new gameplay trailer for Red Dead Redemption outside of the official site :P. There’s also a few videos up there currently that aren’t trailers, such as the Need for Speed: SHIFT press event videos and my PS3 Netflix videos. Enough of this now, here’s the recap.

Not too much going on in the community this week. I did change the banners on this thing, though, and I think it came out looking pretty good. I’m glad the pattern I made with Tosh’s banner worked out OK haha. Also, I skipped over the new game release post for the past week because, well, there wasn’t anything that came out. Most releases are planned for the upcoming months, so I’ll definitely be busy then!

Also, just a heads up, there is a new poll up, and we’re planning on getting new ones up more often so it’s not the same poll you’ve been looking at for a month and a half :lol:. Here’s our recognitions, out of the 21 counted submissions:

I’ve changed the name of this section just to announce any upcoming games any of us are planning on playing together online. I haven’t used this section in a while, though, but this reaches a broader audience as opposed to just Mockers news. And just a heads up, to know which games we are playing online, be sure to check out this post and reply to it and let us know which games you play online!

DECEMBER 22ND
Guitar Hero Van Halen

Well, that’s it for this week! Next week may be a lot slower, though, so just a heads up (you know, with it being Christmas and all). Until next week, have a safe Christmas for those that celebrate! The next Weekly Recap will be the last one of the year as well. Take care all!
