The Weekly Recap (July 25th-31st)



[tab:This Week]

I’d say this week was a pretty average week. No huge announcements or anything, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything worth reading, either. For starters, you can check out Trev’s review of Blur. Beyond that, some of the other highlights include the Battlefield 3 beta being included with the upcoming Medal of Honor Limited Edition. ModNation Racers will be receiving a much needed patch this week. With the release of Firmware 3.41, people are reporting some hard drive installation issues.

There are a few videos to check out as well, including DC Universe Online and DiRT 3. Dead Fantasy, which is a short film of sorts, has also released parts 3-5. You may also enjoy reading Sakinah‘s take on Sucker Punch listening to fans. Be sure to check out the entire recap, though, as there is always a bit I don’t touch upon in this section.



[tab:Community News]

There’s a few new things this week. For starters, you can now get 5 points for voting in the polls! Of course, you must be registered and logged in for the points to count. While we’re on the topic of points, double points are still going on for another week, when posting in the forums. Feature-wise, the only thing I know about that might be new this week is the links to the “Filed Under” archives on the bottom of each post.

Contests were quite big this week, as Oly had a giveaway for Spartacus Blood and Sand motion comics. I’m not sure, but he may still have some left.

As mentioned int he previous recap, Oly had also won the 20,000th comment in the live chat. The Weekly Recap Anniversary Giveaway ended Saturday night, and the winners were as follows:

  • Sinlock – $50 PSN Gift Card
  • Oly1Kenobi – PS3Blog.net t-shirt
  • Adam T – Refund plus 500 points

Congratulations guys! As for upcoming contests, Oly may be giving away some t-shirts himself, as mentioned in the Live Chat (I’m telling you, if you haven’t registered, you’re missing quite a bit!).

First off, Demerson has the recap for the 17th Game Night. You can also read about the 24th’s Game Night as well.

And finally, the 31st had the Prize Fight finals, which I missed because I currently don’t have possession of the game (my brother’s friend is borrowing it and I didn’t even know it).

[tab:Poll Results]

No poll results this week, but you can currently vote on the most overlooked games in recent years. Plus, if you register and vote, you get 5 points added to your tally!
