The Weekly Recap (January 30th-February 5th)



[tab:Recap]

Another big week. We had a few reviews to read, if you want to check out those. We also got a couple new Blog team members, and there are a bunch of videos to check out. FooBear went to the Dragon Age II event last week, and brought back some goodies he’s giving away on the blog (including some really cool coasters).

It also seems that the NGP is still making quite the appearance in the news, reeling in from it’s unveiling a couple weeks ago. We also got a sneak peak at things to come for PlayStation Plus subscribers, as well as information on upcoming games.

The Killzone 3 multiplayer open beta also released later in the week, and with it, we had a couple game day/nights. Some people claim it can’t be a beta, given how the game is already golden, but I think my assumption was correct in that they were testing potential launch day server load problems, and are ironing them out before the game’s release.

Your reviews can be as long or as short as you want, and it might even give you ideas for movies and games you might want to check out!

We had a couple game nights (well, one was in the morning) for the Killzone 3 open beta. Other than that, nothing was planned, but to help curb the confusion on time zones, these posts should now include a countdown so you know exactly how long you have until the event takes place ;).

Although you might be a little late at this point, we had the chance to place bets on tonight’s Super Bowl.

[tab:Poll Results]

Even though this is a small number of our total visitors, if the trend were to continue, it shows that the majority of people are, in fact, planning on getting the PSP2 at some point.

[tab:New Poll]

This is a simple one,a dn suggested by Ace (who will get 200 points for it). Are you, or are you not, going to purchase Killzone 3? With the release of the multiplayer beta last week and the single player demo this week, are you already planning on getting it, or are you waiting to see what others have to say (outside of the corporate reviews)? Or are you just not interested in Killzone at all?

    Id say you were dead on with the server issues considering how many times they have been down. Here’s to hoping it all pays off on day 1. I wish more developers would have betas to iron things out before launch.

  2. #2 by Tosh on February 7th, 2011 [ 1102 Points ]

    Launch day for me. Gimme gimme!

    Most definately.. If they didn’t have this, all the issue would be on launch day and everyone would complaining! Great game.. but I’m def still having issues with the server.

    …and who is this guy stealing all my post thunder?? lol
