The Weekly Recap (June 20th-26th)



[tab:This Week]
So, no surprise here, there was a little bit of a drop off in activity since E3 ended almost 2 weeks ago (2 QuickNews and 19 articles), but there was actually still a bit of activity on the community side of things, with contests and, finally, game night announcements (which can be found in the ‘Community News‘ and ‘Play With Us‘ tabs respectively). So, what are the highlights?

Ace showed off some multiplayer for Twisted Metal, which has been in development for 18 months already. Trev got to check out FIFA 11 at EA. And Sony has released more information for PlayStation Plus, which launches tomorrow.

As for other articles, Demerson has another Red Dead Redemption Chronicle to read (and details of a contest that ends in a couple days, which you can read more about in the Community News tab). Darrin has his take on Sony and Microsoft with 3D, and with that, be sure to watch Jimmy Fallon’s reaction to Killzone 3 in 3D.

Now, what about the ‘should have been there‘ deals? You could have gotten Dead Space for $10 and $20 off at the EA store.

Alright, busy community week, that’s for sure. To start, there were a few contests going on, and winners to one of them were announced. The E3 week giveaway ended early last week, and the winners were:

Congratulations to the other two! Currently, there is another contest being held, by one of the other members here. It’s a RDR Chronicle writing contest! This one comes courtesy of Demerson. If you are one of the two winners, you’ll receive a $20 PSN Gift Card.

Going back to E3, the ‘Best of E3‘ voting has completed, and you can read the results here. Though it’s not surprising to see Sony make it out on top (given the site and everything), there were still some surprises to be had. Anyway, here’s this week’s recognitions:

Right now, there aren’t any planned Game Nights, but given that we’re starting to do them again, this would be a good section to keep an eye on them. We did have two this past week, and assuming you didn’t have connection problems like Oly and I, you probably had some fun. So which Game Nights did we do?

We had a Medal of Honor Game Night, which I had missed unfortunately (well, both of them :P).

And a Red Dead Redemption Game Night, which I tried to connect to, but couldn’t (and once I fixed the problem, everyone was leaving :P).
[tab:Poll Results]

Though I posted results based on what was available last Saturday, the official results are up now.

As for this week, the question is “Which are you looking forward to getting your hands/eyes on more?” with your choices between Move, #d, Both and Neither.
[tab:Thank You]
Thanks for reading and, hopefully, I’ll get the next one in this Saturday. This week, PS+ starts up, with FW v3.40, and, hopefully, some cool news.
