The Weekly Recap (July 17th-23rd)



[tab:Recap]

Despite Comic Con going on in San Diego right now, it’s been a relatively slow week. Pedro put up an editorial about innovation in gaming (and I put up a poll using that as a basis). Speaking of innovation (or lack thereof), a new Zombie game is in the works, this one by Grasshopper Manufacture.

We had a few trailers this week. One for Starhawk (which was shown at Comic Con), as well as a Penguin trailer for Batman: Arkham City. We also got a sneak peak at some multiplayer with a new Battlefield 3 trailer as well.

We also had a few reviews this week as well. Puzzle Dimension, inFamous 2, and Patapon 3. Be sure to read those and leave comments!

With that out of the way, we still have a lot going on, so be sure to read the other tabs for details on giveaways and double points. I definitely suggest taking advantage of the latter to help you with the former.


[tab:Community News & Game Nights]

Nothing new this week community wise. We do, however, have double points active through the rest of July! With a good number of giveaways coming up, now is a good time to stock up on points!

And, as always, be sure to listen to our BlogCasts! You’ll get plenty of laughs! For our newest one, be sure to listen to episode 10.

The winner of the Alien Zombie Megadeath giveaway has been chosen (as well as the winners of the Red Johnson’s Chronicles giveaway, so congratulations to you guys!

We also have our ongoing E3 Swag giveaway, as well as a chance for you to win a blu-ray of the Tekken movie.

For major giveaways, we have also made it a lot easier for facebook users to enter them. To see what I mean, be sure to check it out here.

Today was supposed to be our GT5 tournament, but since Pedro couldn’t make it, and likely Baba won’t either (leaving only 3 competitors), I have decided to postpone it until next weekend. Maybe I’ll see if I can get more people to join us this week as well.

[tab:Poll Results]

From the looks of it, you guys either spent a lot or didn’t spend anything at all when the PSN came back, as tied for the number one spot are “Nothing” and the 20-50 range. One person did have to file for bankruptcy, though. There are still a few things I have to buy myself, but I am a bit low on funds.

[tab:New Poll]

Since there wasn’t any valid poll ideas for this week, I decided to come up with one of my own. And I don’t get points for my brilliant ideas :P. As usual, I like to base them off of something going on this week, so without further ado, this week’s poll is based off of Pedro’s article about innovation. The only thing is, I have a few things listed, and it’s up to you to see what you think is most important for future titles.

    I wish I could go to Comic Con. It seems like such a great place to chill at. Too bad I actually have a job :(

  3. #3 by EdEN on July 24th, 2011 [ 138451 Points ]

    @Darklurkr23: Comic Con is awesome! I’ve been going for the last 11 years but had to skip 2011 since there’s been a lot of expenses with the baby in the house. Will get my tickets for 2012 on october.

    Comic-Con is hilarious… and flee-markety.

  5. #5 by Pedro on July 25th, 2011 [ 39949 Points ]

    A good week for Pedro :D

    However, we’re a little weak on the “like” side huh? 1 Like was all we could get? People share those posts!

  6. #6 by Darklurkr23 on July 25th, 2011 [ 22701 Points ]

    I wish there was one in NJ it’s always in like Philly or Cali or something. It ever go to New York?

  7. #7 by EdEN on July 27th, 2011 [ 138451 Points ]

    @Darklurkr23: Well, it’s not a “traveling show” sort of deal BUT you’re in luck as NY DOES have a Comic Con of it’s own!
