The Weekly Recap (September 12th-18th)



[tab:This Week]

Yeah, another late one, but damn was there a lot. A lot of trailers. Be sure to check out all the videos in case you missed something that might interest you. Personally, the Gran Turismo 5 and Castlevania trailers were probably my favorite.

Anyway, besides trailers, we now know for sure that an Ico/Shadow of the Colossus collection will be released next spring, with some updated textures and high definition resolution. The games still have the same look, but are a lot crisper (so don’t expect nicely contrasted colors or anything, but the games are still amazing in their own right).

There were a few Kevin Butler videos posted, including an EyePet commercial and an interview with X Play’s Adam Sessler. With the Move released, there were a few new videos for that, as well as announcements like the aforementioned Ico collection possibly getting Move support, Heavy Rain being patched this week, and Ben Feder calling it the Wii HD :P.

As for stuff from us? Sinlock reviewed Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, killburn37 gave us his first thoughts on the Move, Henning/Blackstaffer wrote about cross game chat again, and Darrin showed us his highlights for TGS. There’s quite a bit, so I would definitely suggest looking through this recap!



[tab:Community News]

To start off, we updated the Calendar page. It all started with Darrin’s UK and Canada release calendars, which were then added to the main calendar, with the changes described here.

And since Tokyo Game Show took place last weekend, Tosh had double points for posting articles until at least Monday, which if you missed out, could have made it a lot easier to get points for the giveaway ;).

For the active chatters, Tosh has also added + and – buttons to expand the chat box, which is helpful for reading my random banter and Oly’s jokes.

Alright, as of this posting, this is the last week for the Move giveaway! For a small video of the prizes, you can see that here. We’re already at about 150 entries last time I checked. Be sure to check the Move Giveaway banner on the sidebar for past posts in case you missed anything, but still want to enter.

Some folks are interested in doing another Red Dead Redemption game night. If anyone is interested, let us know! Preferably, for me at least, I’d hope you guys have, at least, the Liars and Cheats pack.

[tab:Thank You]

Thanks for reading guys. Sorry about being so late with this one. I had a lot going on again. Trust me, I really wanted to work on this Saturday night, but unforeseen circumstances hindered my progress.

    I had a friend over the other day who is thinking of trading in his RROD 360 (sent in under warranty), which happens to be his 5th 360, for a PS3. I popped in Warhawk and remembered how fun that game was. We should do a Warhawk ps3blog.net night.

  8. #8 by Tosh on September 24th, 2010 [ 1102 Points ]

    Warhawk game night would be fun!

  9. #9 by SicSemperTyranis on September 24th, 2010 [ 6405 Points ]
