The Weekly Recap (September 5th-11th)



[tab:This Week]

Last week Eddie spammed dominated the QuickNews section, but I took the other three :P. With that said, it was a somewhat busy week. Vnqshr, one of our new members, has submitted a couple articles himself. It’s always nice to see new writers contribute to the site.

Anyway, this week’s highlights include GT5’s car damage being shown off a Best Buy demo kiosk, there’s a bunch of Move stuff, including a massive FAQ by Sony. Wal Mart had supposedly put up a Ico/Shadow of the Colossus game collection, but there was no official word on it. A new firmware was released that directly affected Jailbreak users (and soon after, Sony also cut off the proxy bypass that allowed users to connect to PSN with the older firmware).

We got to see some gameplay from the new co-op Ratchet and Clank game, and it looks like it would be pretty fun. Flight Control HD will be hitting everywhere but North America (which sucks). There are a couple cool trailers for InFAMOUS 2 and Marvel vs Capcom 3 to check out as well. And a new Kevin Butler ad has been released as well.

Plus, don’t forget to cast your votes in Darrin’s form. It would be interesting to see what everyone thinks.



[tab:Community News]

It doesn’t appear there are any new features shown last week. This week, though, we have a new Calendar on the Calendar page, which shows new releases for the UK, Canada and the US< as well as gaming/PS3 events and PS3Blog events as well. Everything is color coded, so knowing which posting is for what category will be easy to figure out.

Activity has also picked up quite a bit. Be sure to check the forums as well. Always some interesting stuff in there. If its your first time posting, your posts will need approved until either Tosh, Luke or I approve at least one, but we usually don't take too long with that ;).

As for a few other things, we had a few point abusers and a cheater, but they have been dealt with. Point abusers will not be tolerated, so keep that in mind. Oh, and if you missed it, last week was also a double points week, but we occasionally have them every now and then. It’s always a good idea to come around and check us out!

We’re still waiting for us to hit the 1000 mark on our facebook page in order to have our move giveaway! Remember, invite friends and family to the page. It would be very cool if they happen to be gamers, too!

And finally, congratulations to wonderhoss for winning the caption contest!

[tab:Play With Us]

We don’t have anything planned, but we sometimes to an impromptu game night. The other day, Luke, Adam T and I played some Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Since we all got on at different times, only Luke and I managed to get on the same team/squad. Adam T was on the other team, and owned us a couple times, but Luke and I dominated.

Both of us were engineers, and we took a tank and got kills left and right. Best squad multiples times, but I always outscored Luke :P. It was a lot of fun, though. If you guys want to have a more organized game night, be sure to let people know via the forums, or even the game night group!

[tab:Thank You]

Thanks for reading everybody! Sorry for getting this up on a Tuesday morning as opposed to a Saturday night, but I have a lot going on right now.
