The Weekly Recap (November 14th-20th)



[tab:This Week]

Just to let you know, this will be the last Weekly Recap to count trailer, gameplay and ad videos toward the recognitions, since there isn’t much substance in terms of writing. Trailers included with stories will, as always, be under a different section anyway, and will still be counted. I only chose to change the counting like this because we seem to have a lot more simple video posts than any other type of article over the past few weeks.

Anyway, activity has been pretty constant for the past month, which is nice, and it is also nice to see some new blood writing, too. Here are some of the past week’s highlights:

  • Rumors are circulating that Diablo III might be coming to consoles
  • A bunch of LBP info came out, including beta expansion and a demo
  • Sony is supposed to reveal a new exclusive on December 12th
  • GT5 will have an optional 6.4-10GB install
  • Black Ops surpassed Modern Warfare 2, and everything else, in terms of sales
  • Darrin gave us the October sales numbers
  • I gave my opinion on what would make the GT series better
  • VUDU was confirmed to be hitting PS3s next week
  • A bunch of new PS3-only PSN games were announced to be coming very soon
  • Tosh reviewed Time Crisis: Razing Storm
  • Kevin Butler had 3 new ads this week

Not a whole lot of new stuff. We do need some help with game nights if anyone is interested in running any of those. I will get you points for running them! Be sure to check out all the groups in the Site Activity tab at the top, too.

We are currently in the final stretch of the ModNation Racers giveaway, as you have until Monday afternoon to get your point donations in!

[tab:Play With Us]

Tosh told us about our last Killzone 3 Beta game night, but from my understanding, the beta is still open, so another may be scheduled in the future.

Oly gave us a recap of the November 13th Black Ops game night, and FTP had originally planned to have an LBP game night last night, but had to cancel it because of personal life.

With that said, I did say that I will be rewarding points for participating and running game nights, too. Be sure to read the LBP game night post for more info on that.
