The Weekly Recap (January 16th-22nd)



[tab:Recap]
A really busy week this week. 31 main articles in all! I thought for sure Oly would take this week’s Contributor of the Week, but Eddie squeezed by with the win. Even the QuickNews section was crazy busy.

Anyway, don’t forget that the Two Worlds II contest is still ongoing, so if you haven’t already entered today, be sure to do so. With that out of the way, what stood out this week?

EdEN has interviewed one of the devs of the UnderGarden. This is actually one of the first Q&As we did with a developer! Of course, expect more, especially when we get a few guys into E3 this year!

FooBear408 also did an awesome job covering the Crysis 2 Multiplayer Event Live for us. Can’t wait until he does another! If you haven’t checked out the tweets in the live blog, I suggest doing so. Quite entertaining!

Other than that, we have had a lot of news covering the ongoing piracy and hacking going on with the PS3, but Sony is hard at work on that. I can see Sony “laying the smacketh down” on potentially numerous exploiters. I’m glad a lot of CFW systems have bricked.


[tab:Community News & Game Nights]

Not much new this week. We do, currently, have a list of past contest winners if you’re interested in looking that up.

Both this (the Weekly Recap) and the store update posts have been redesigned this past week and we are hoping to keep those coming for you! The recap, in particular, should be finished a lot faster than before thanks to the archives (on my end) being redone to make it easier ;). Thanks to Tosh, of course!

As for the store update, it appears that’s what has brought a lot of you here in the first place. Although we dropped the Japan and Hong Kong stores, most of our visitors are from either the US or the EU (and Canada; not sure how much their store differs from the US store, except for maybe prices, but I don’t have a source for that).

This week, we had the voting going on for the Kung Fu Live giveaway, and a few days later, the winners were also chosen. Congrats to Dean and Terbas! Hopefully you enjoy it! I haven’t had too much time with it given the fact my PS3 just had to die :P.

For those who weren’t aware, we held a game night for LBP2 on release night. Although, according to the recap, it wasn’t a huge success (due to a number of launch-day server issues). With that in mind, another is planned for the 25th, so if you want to join in, mark your calendar! These are a great way to earn points!

[tab:Poll Results]

You may have to reload the graph. Right click on it and select ‘Reload Frame’ if it’s too small


Seems like quite a few of those who voted are not interested in getting a 3D TV at the moment, but the majority seem to have some interest, according to the numbers between all three other answers.

Personally, I would like to wait it out a couple more years. Hopefully by then, there will be a glasses-less option available and it won’t have to come at a premium price. I don’t think we’re going to get the most out of this technology until around the time the PS4 comes out at least.

[tab:New Poll]

Hopefully I have enough excuses in this week’s poll. If I need to put any more, let me know and I’ll add them! This week’s question asks whether or not we should still have exclusive titles.
