The Weekly Recap (March 20th-26th)



[tab:Recap]

First of all, yes, I got this done in time for a change. I also dropped the “Poll Results” tab, as I already posted those yesterday/Friday on the last recap (which was almost a week late). I still have the new poll tab up, though, so you can vote on the poll for this week.

Anyway, it was a pretty uneventful week, and the number of posts shows it. QuickNews actually had more entries than the regular, front page articles (beating it out 18 to 15). That doesn’t mean we didn’t have anything interesting, though. For instance, our Portal 2 t-shirt and game giveaway went live (be sure to read the Community News tab).

While we’re still on the topic of contests, I would like to, personally, thank those who entered into the 6 year anniversary giveaway and said all those things about us. Hearing all the positive comments about the community makes it worth not getting paid to be part of the staff :).

Now, for the week’s highlights. Jason has been keeping tabs on all the sales going on (at least in the states), so it’s nice to keep us informed of those. Also, apparently, GeoHot fled to South America. Here’s a “surprise.” Duke Nukem Forever has been delayed. At least it’s only for about a month or so, but that’s besides the fact.

Battlefield 3 is being looked at for possible Move and 3D implementation (as said by the developers). That, in no way, means that the game will, indeed, include said features, though. We got a few more videos and an impressions post from Luke’s visit to PAX as well. Here’s hoping the upcoming week is a little more eventful, though.

This week was a pretty busy one, in terms of contests. Markus won the 6 year anniversary giveaway, so congratulations to him! And, again, thank you all for the support! Be sure to check that post out as well, as you can also win 500 points!

We also have the Portal 2 game and t-shirt giveaway. Remember, just because we have a few weeks before it ends, it’s better to get your entries out of the way now, because you might end up forgetting! It’s happened to people before!

Game Night activity has picked up a lot of steam recently, thanks to Jcmdaddy, as he had another Uncharted 2 game night going on. You can read a recap of that event here. If you would like, you can also see a highlight reel of the game they played last week as well.

Ace had also planned on doing a game night for the SOCOM 4 beta, but given how the download size was bigger than expected, Baba0Booey headed it instead. Beyond the comments, there has not been an official recap post of the event, though.

    Great recap as usual jay..

    The reason I didn’t post an official recap of the socom 4 beta game night was that other than myself, nobody showed up. There was really nothing to recap, hence the lack of a recap post lol. It was a bit too soon to hold a game night for it lol, the decision to hold a game night for it was made literally an hour after the beta went live for PS+ members. I did end up meeting up with tosh and faveli ( think thats his name) in text chat while they played their own games of S4 after I had called and end to the game night. Its also really difficult to hold a game night for S$ beta since zipper, in their infinite wisdom has chosen to disable parties for the beta. but rest assured there will be a S4 game night the day the game goes live lol!

    Also, on the 25th, Markus won a 20$ PSN card and that’s a pretty awesome highlight in and of itself! ^^;

    Going to use it on the ME2 DLC; New Arrival!
