The Weekly Recap (July 18th-24th)



[tab:This Week]

Thanks go out to Tosh for compiling the news from last week. Been very busy lately, but I should have some time for other stuff now that most of the things that used up my time are now finally slowing down. Anyway, there was quite a bit of news to cover actually. Oddworld seems to be making a return. Tarsier Studios is now First Party. Hip Hop Gamer did an awesome interview with Anton Mikhailov about the Move, and motion gaming in general. Rockstar will soon be targeting cheaters. And, there are a ton of gameplay videos last week, so go and read the Gaming News tab for those.

One of the cooler ones is time passage in Red Dead Redemption. Pretty cool stuff and gives you a good idea of progression of time in the game and what changes around you.



[tab:Community News]

OK, there was quite a bit of Community news last week. For one, you can earn double points for the rest of the month simply by posting in the forums!

And in case you might have missed it, Oly was at Comic-Con this year and did some live blogging so be sure to check that out, too.


Tosh has compiled a list of Twitter accounts of different members and staff. There is also a Twitter widget on the site, which can be seen at the bottom of the side bar on the community pages.

Another cool thing you can use is the ability to call a number and leave a voicemail. Given the interest in starting a podcast, this could be a cool feature to use to get some shout outs or what have you aired on the podcast. Hopefully we can manage to get one going, because that would be very cool.


Tosh ran a giveaway for the 20,000th comment, and the winner was Oly. Congrats!

Beyond that, the Weekly Recap Giveaway is still going on. I will begin reviewing entries this week to make sure entrants have done the qualifying steps. I will PM those who did not complete one of the two tasks.

Again, thanks for reading. Hopefully this will be the last time I need to do one recap after the other :lol:. Stay tuned for all upcoming recaps, which will hopefully be on time now.
