The Weekly Recap (July 11th-17th)



[tab:This Week]

Quite a bit late with this one, for sure. Had some personal stuff going on for a while (health and vehicle related) so I had been pre-occupied with that and haven’t really been able to come on here and post much of anything. All that has finally been taken care of, though, so I’m definitely in better spirits now (that, and the Senate finally passed the much-needed Unemployment Extension). So what’s new for this week?

Sakinah let us know that Hello Games broke even on release day with their title Joe Danger, which is a great title, by the way (hopefully this means more awesome games from them in the future). Darrin showed us the numbers for June. The Hulu+ service is available in preview form for PS+ subscribers. James Bond seems to be making a return, and the announcement of the title, Blood Stone, even has a debut trailer.

There are a few pieces of other news as well, so be sure to check out the entirety of the recap and see what you may have missed. I’d go a little more in-depth here, but seeing as I have yet another Recap to write after this one, I need to manage my time :P.



[tab:Community News]

From what I can gather, we didn’t really have much news in the Community a couple weeks ago. Doesn’t mean it wasn’t very active, though. We still had a number of posts come in.

Tosh did manage to organize the top menu more, though. It makes navigation of some of the site’s pages easier and also better labeled the different link across the top to make a little more sense.


There’s a new Group Forums Directory that now allows you to create new group forum topics from that page rather than having to navigate to each individual group separately. Keep in mind, not all groups have forums, so you may not be able to post a topic in a few of them.

You can also check out a new Help Video on how to Favorite all the different things (news posts, topics, etc) on the site.


If you aren’t a member, the contests should be enough to make you want to register! Not only that, if you’re logged in, you can join in on the Live Chat (which is always busy, save for late nights) and there are always secret contests being held there.

Currently, the biggest contest we have going on ends in just a few days. If you haven’t already, you can read about the contest here. Enter as soon as possible for your chance to win a $50 PSN gift card!

[tab:Play With Us]

It appears that there are going to be Game Nights every Saturday for Red Dead Redemption (at least for the time being). Given that fact, you can read the recap for the 07/10 Game Night here. There was also a scheduled Game Night for the 17th.

Hopefully, I can get back into the swing of things and get back online with you guys…

[tab:Poll Results]

Due to Google’s Interactive Pie Chart gadget not working right, I’ll have to do this the old fashioned way, but here are the previous poll’s results:

Will you be purchasing the Move?

Yes – 26 Votes 33% of all votes
Wait for the games – 20 Votes 25% of all votes

[tab:Thank You]
Thank you for your patience. I still got one more recap coming today, which will be for last week, so I’ll finally be caught up with those again.
