The Weekly Recap (March 6th-12th)



[tab:Recap]

Yeah, I wound up being late again. It was a pretty hectic week for me, as I was busy editing video and the like for the site, and given slow upload speeds and slow rendering times for the videos, it was a long process (plus I had other things to do as well).

Anyway, enough of my complaining. Last week was a relatively quiet week in terms of number of posts, but we did have a bit of news come out of that. First off, PS+ members finally got the save game cloud, which will come in handy for those who might get a YLOD and no way to get their saves back. We also got a look at the main villain of Uncharted 3, a new L.A. Noire gameplay video (as well as a collection of videos and trailers for other games; be sure to check all those out).

We have our review for the PSN title, Stacking, up. Although there have been mixed reviews, this one does a good job of telling readers what to expect from the title. One of our members also posted an editorial of his favorite and least favorite games, and that sparked an interesting conversation, so check that out, too.

As far as Sony, itself, goes, a few UK studios have had projects shut down to focus more on already-announced exclusive titles to keep their quality up and release in a timely manner. Sony was also affected by the earthquake in Japan, and had some of its plants shut down. If you can help with disaster relief in any way, please do so!

PAX East also took place, and Luke managed to attend all 3 days. He got us a bunch of videos and interviews, and will also have an upcoming t-shirt giveaway. I wish something like PAX would happen here in Arizona, though :P.


[tab:Community News & Game Nights]

If I recall correctly, we had this new chat system set up last week, but we didn’t describe new features until earlier this week, but it seems most people have figured it out anyway. Personally, I like the new system, but I wish staff, like myself, could engage in the private chats with anyone online, as opposed to having to be friends in order to use it, but that’s just me.

Overall, though, it’s definitely a nicer system than the previous one we had, and makes private conversations much easier, as we no longer have to do that @@name to PM someone in the chat; and it’s more secure.

There were a couple contests last week. First off, the winners of the InFamous 2 DLC codes can be found here. We also have the winner of the Cannon Fodder: Paper Wars contest as well. Hope you are enjoying the game!

The SOCOM 4 contest for some beta keys started last week, and concluded this morning, so congratulations to the winners!

We had held a March 10th Game Night in Killzone 3, in which Ace also posted some video of himself playing as well. You can read the recap here. Chances are, we will have more and more Game Night videos in the future. Personally, I’d like to record the final race on our future GT5 tournament, whenever I am able to do that.

[tab:Poll Results]

The majority of people seem to want a better site design. As Tosh mentioned in our anniversary post, we are currently working on that, so be patient! As far as some other results go, more giveaways was an obvious choice for a lot of people, better copy editing was another (not sure what you’re asking for there; if you mean editing in general, we’re working on it ;) ). A referral system got a few votes, as did those who said we’re awesome already.

I also don’t know where the “Merge with thePlayStationshow.com” came from :lol:, but someone wants it to happen. Personally, I think that is very doubtful haha.

Anyway, we will take your opinions into consideration and see what we can do to change it up for ya, but in a way that works, of course.

[tab:New Poll]

Given the short amount of time needed for this poll, we will be skipping it for this recap, but on this week’s recap (which I hope will be up tomorrow), we will have a new poll for you.
