The Weekly Recap (April 3rd-9th)
Old habits die hard, right? I didn’t mean for this one to be late, but I’ve been all over the place trying to get things taken care of and haven’t really had the time to work on this.
Anyway, enough with the excuses. Here are some highlights from last week: Battlefield 3 is going to have a huge ad campaign to have better market share with the title and to, maybe, take a lot of the thunder away from the Call of Duty series. Anonymous has been proving to everyone that what they’re doing is of great annoyance, NBA Elite is still having problems and will not have a 2012 title, and Jason informed us of some general maintenance with how to clean the PS3.
A number of trailers and videos have been released as well, including Twisted Metal (with a release date reveal), LA Noire, and InFamous 2. Even screens for Alice: Madness Returns and Battlefield 3 have made an appearance.
If you’re into reading reviews, we have a handful of those as well. EdEN had reviewed both MiniSquadrons and Swarm, and Madagasca has reviewed Yakuza 4. We also have a few more reviews coming soon, so keep an eye out for those as well!

Not much new, but if you’re one of our co-writers, be sure to check out the co-writers group as I have been compiling a lot of resources for you guys to help make things easier for posting news. Hopefully you use these resources to your advantage!
Also, don’t forget, we still have double points going on for a few more days in certain areas, so capitalize on that!
Although the posts we had last week are, by now, pretty irrelevant on the account of me being so late with this recap, but we do have the FEAR 3 water bottle giveaway winners, as well as the winner to the PSP game Vertigo.
And since I might be late with the next recap (hopefully not, though), there’s also a chance for you to win Swarm as well, as we’re giving away 2 copies of the hit PSN title!
We also have more giveaways planned in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled!

Well, it appears that RPG had dominated this poll, followed by a TPS RPG, and then the shooters. I should have seen it coming, but the results are interesting nonetheless. I’m surprised multiplayer RPG got dead last, though.
There were no decent poll ideas, so I made this one based off of the recent Steam features detailed for Portal 2. Many places say that this implementation can be an XBox Live killer if the relationship between Valve and PS3 grows, as cross-platform play and the ability to download titles that you bought for PS3 onto your Steam account on PC/Mac are very attractive features. What is your opinion of it?
