The Weekly Recap (July 10th-16th)



[tab:Recap]

It seems like every time I get around to writing articles, the week always seems to be busy. Until I do the recap, and realize how little activity there actually was. As far as counted articles go (which doesn’t include weekly posts like blu-ray releases, the podcasts, recaps, etc and posts about the site/community), we only had a total of 12 articles and 13 QuickNews.

What were some of this week’s highlights, though? Well, I expressed my love for War of the Monsters and how it would be a perfect PSN game. I also posted the heart breaking news of Netflix changing up its subscription plans. Eddie also posted an article about Sony supporting smaller developers (and, apparently, dedicated $20 million to PSN game development).

A new Sanits Row 3 trailer featuring the pre-order bonus pack was released, and, as expected, it was ridiculously over the top. We’ve also had trailers for Batman: Arkham City and Driver: San Francisco.

As far as reviews go, EdEN had posted his for Alien Zombie Megadeath and Back to the Future: Episode 4. I also posted a review, this time for an active HDMI cable. I was trying to get my inFamous 2 review up last week as well, but personal life came up. I do have most of it written already, though, so expect that sometime this week for sure.

As always, be sure to read all of the recap. Maybe you missed something this week that might have interested you?


[tab:Community News & Game Nights]

Tosh has made it so anyone who participates in a BlogCast gets 200 points. If you want to earn points easily, that’s a chance for you to do so! It’s very casual, laid back, and conversational. Most of the time, we record on Wednesday night at 6PM, Pacific.

You can also earn 100 points for emailing us and 150 for leaving us a voicemail (@ PS3-888-BLOG – US number). We will read mail on air, as well as putting the audio from voicemails in there.

Be sure to listen to Episode 9 when you get a chance!

The Red Johnson’s Chronicles giveaway ends tonight, so be sure to get your last minute entries in for this excellent title. There will be three winners.

If point and click mystery games aren’t your thing, we also have a chance for you to win the far more frantic Alien Zombie Megadeath, which ends Thursday night. I’m not sure how many winners will be chosen here, though.

Earlier this week I had posted a reminder about our Gran Turismo 5 tournament, which is still scheduled for the 24th (one week from today). At this point in time, that is still the only game night we have planned unfortunately.

Of course, that’s not to say you can’t start one yourself! In fact, we have a site trophy you can get just for hosting your first one. The only thing you have to do is apply to be a writer and you can simply opt to just host game nights. You can also go into the Game Night Group and post there as well (I am going to try to find ways of promoting the Groups section so it gets more activity).

[tab:Poll Results]

Not too many people voted this week, but from the results, most people think we’re a**holes because those people have jobs. There are others who are getting fat. More so than those engaging in sports, or even gaming. Only a select few are getting sexified. There is also one person from the southern hemisphere who is currently enjoying winter, my favorite time of year.

[tab:New Poll]

This new poll idea is by way of EdEN, who will get the 200 points for the suggestion. We’re asking how much money you’ve spent on the PlayStation Store since the PSN resumed service, in light of the post we had earlier in the week about how sales have been doing better since before the outage.

Since not everyone on the site uses the dollar, I included symbols for the pound and euro as well, and “etc” for any other denomination. Basically, it goes from the low-end amount to the higher end (so if you aren’t familiar with those forms of money, anything over $50 is usually one of the full games or if you got a full year of PS+).
