The Weekly Recap (June 6th-12th)



[tab:This Week]
Activity picked up a bit last week, with lots of news coming through up to the start of E3 this week. There will most definitely be a lot of news that will trickle through throughout the week, so I definitely advise readers to keep an eye on the site as we’ll be posting news pretty much non-stop, and we’ll still love for Community members to come join us in the news posting this week. There’s a contest going on pertaining to that, too, so be sure to read the “Community News” tab.

Highlights for this week include a couple reviews/impressions written, including Episode 2 of The Devil’s Playhouse, and a ‘First Impressions’ of Joe Danger by Demerson. I had originally wanted to get the full review up last weekend, but ran out of time unfortunately.

Darrin has a quick opinion piece on Sony’s E3. There have been a number of announced titles (be sure to go to the Gaming News tab to read about them), Demerson has a fun piece on RDR, and 3D finally launched as well.

And be sure to check out this movie pitch for a Mortal Kombat reboot. It’s very cool and could show where a movie adaptation might go if Warner decides to take up on it.

Alright, this week, we see a couple new writers on here in Madagasca and Demerson. Glad to see you guys getting active on here with the rest of us! It’s been one of those weeks for sure. Despite getting ready for a camping trip this past weekend, I still managed to keep my activity up on here, as did a handful of others. We did have one really cool announcement last week, though. PS3Blog.net WILL be at E3 this year thanks to Oly, who will be covering it live here.

Also, with this week being E3, Tosh is doing another Giveaway, with an incentive to submit news, and that being double points throughout the week. Winners will receive either a PSN gift card or some points (plus a refund of the points they submitted). You can read all those details here. Here’s last week’s recognitions:

Though you can’t really do any multiplayer, if anyone is interested, I did make a track for Joe Danger. Just let me know your PSN name and I’ll send it to you. You don’t need to be friends or anything. When I do send it to you, though, keep an eye out for my PSN ID, JimmyMagnum.
[tab:Poll Results]

No poll results this week, but the one we do have is about what to expect at Sony’s press conference, which takes place tomorrow.
