The Weekly Recap (August 29th-September 4th)



[tab:This Week]

One small change this week. I dropped the Poll tab. It wasn’t necessary anymore. You can check out the poll results on the post I made last night. Other than that? It was a pretty busy week, and we almost managed to surpass 40 articles. A lot of that had to do with PAX West happening over the past few days (honestly, who would have thought Duke Nukem Forever would ever come into fruition, let alone, be in playable form?).

Anyway, here’s a quick rundown of last weeks news, outside of that. mairondil has submitted a bunch of articles, one getting a huge number of likes. We have quite a few pieces of commentary to check out, too. Hideo Kojima, the guy behind the Metal Gear Solid series, has had a hand in the development of the new Castlevania game. Some highly details screenshots of Arkham City have been released.

Killzone 3 was shown with Move controls, and I think they look to work great (save for the auto-aim, which is obviously there only for demonstration purposes). InFamous 2 is also rumored to have Move support, so we’ll see what happens there. OddWorld: Stranger’s Wrath is said to be heading to PS3 next Easter. A few other games have also had their release dates announced. Thanks to PAX, there is also a big selection of videos to check out, including some new trailers and the like.



[tab:Community News]

A few new things are happening. One, you can now subscribe to groups through email, with a bunch of options on how you want to subscribe. Finding the feature was a Live Chat contest that went on for a couple days, and I won, so I got some points for it :P.

Other than that, we had some point system abusers that were taken care of last night. And with that, I am also able to deal with them myself, so if you see anything fishy, have a problem with another member, etc, you can talk to both Tosh and I.

Alright, we had a few things happen this week. First of all, we had a caption contest to get 500 points to help people build them up for the Move giveaway, and the winner was announced today.

We have also reached 700 fans, and with that, the prizes were revealed for the Move contest. Given how fast that happened, Toh promised a second Move controller if we reach 1500 total fans. Awesome!
