The Weekly Recap (April 18th-24th) |

[tab:This Week]
Another relatively slow week. And another late submission on my part (and I apologize for that; it was a hectic week). Anyway, despite having a new firmware update, updates for a couple games (MAG patch and Uncharted 2 DLC) and a bunch of other stuff, we still only wound up with about 24 main submission and 5 QuickNews. Here’s the highlights:

Jaffe slams Game Sharing, saying it’s a bunch of horsesh*t. He obviously isn’t the only either, as Capcom had some more extreme measures to prevent sharing on their title, Final Fight: Double Impact (which had been used in a few other games before). Darrin had posted a bit more this week as well, with one opinion piece about what companies should collaborate and create a game system (even though it’s unrealistic, it would make for a very interesting system).

Marvel vs Capcom 3 has also been announced, and a couple domains had been registered by Ubisoft, presumably for unannounced games (a new Driver and Assassin’s Creed). There have also been numerous posts on ModNation Racers. One of which was a new Kevin Butler ad, which is supposed to start airing on TV this Wednesday in the US.

Not a whole lot on the Community side of things. I do have a heads-up, though. Tosh has allowed me to confirm new stories in case I’m on and he’s away. The one thing I would like to stress is to make sure you don’t have any spelling/grammar mistakes. I do fix them for you, though. Also, sourcing the articles is also a biggie, but most everyone seems to go by that already, so it’s not really an issue.

Also, Ceidz received his new T-shirt, which you can check out here. Tosh wants to get pics of everyone who has one to add to our collection, so if you ever win a shirt from us or buy one from the Zazzle store (they’re very good quality by the way), be sure to send in a pic of yourself!

And one last thing. I believe it may have been looked over, but Tosh had a contest to win a God of War III character skin, and the contest was supposed to end on the 24th, but had received no entries, so I’m assuming that’s still going on, and, at this point, it will probably be the first person to enter by way of the contest rules. Here’s this week’s recognitions:

[tab:Thank You]
Thanks for reading everyone! I’m going to try to get back on the ball, but every day passes way too quick for me to get anything done anymore. Also, to make the Thank You tab more fun, I’m going to post any Butlerized pics I make on the Kevin Butler Fan Page on Facebook, and here’s one I did yesterday pretty quick:

  • Yes, the God of War 3 character skin is still available. First to post in the God of War Group gets it.

  • Booo @ slow weeks!

    Summer is just around the corner. Nerds rejoice! lol There should be good movies and games incoming.

    If April showers bring May flowers. Then April slow weeks bring…

    Damnit, I got nothing
