The Weekly Recap (February 20th-26th)
Sorry for being late on this one. Still have a bit of back pain going on, so I haven’t been able to sit and work on this. Anyway, last week wasn’t too active, but we still had a few decent articles for you to read.
Killzone 3 released last week, so we posted the launch trailer and held a Game Night. We also got our first glimpse at Battlefield 3 gameplay (before the new trailer that was released earlier this week). A new Skyrim trailer and the trailer for the upcoming PSN game, Orcs Must Die!, were also released.
Speaking of OMD!, be sure to read my hands-on preview! The giveaway is over, though, and the prizes have already been shipped out, but the game is a lot of fun, and I think I need to get you guys interested in it :P. On the subject of previews and reviews, we also have a DC: Universe Online review, written up by SL33PY.
Eddie posted another NGP news roundup, and there has even been news that Unreal Engine 3 has been released to be used for the device. As far as the rumor mill goes, it is believed that Resident Evil 6 will be a timed PS3 exclusive much in the way Resident Evil 4 was on the GameCube.
The final post of the week, Sakinah’s post on using 3D glasses for multiplayer games, showcases a really neat concept that might be pretty cool if it were implemented. Though people would need 3D TVs with glasses for it to work, the idea is awesome. Be sure to read about that, too!

From the looks of it, there aren’t really any new features. Given the poll results, though, it seems a few of you would be interested in listening to a podcast, so Ace and I will be working on getting that going soon.
Just a heads up, we will also be trying to occasionally get exclusive giveaways on there for listeners, too.
The only contest we had was a swag giveaway from my trip to Plano to check out their upcoming game, Orcs Must Die! Here are the winners; I also sent out the prizes yesterday.
Don’t forget, though, we also have a current giveaway for Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder, as well as a few more coming down the tubes, so stay tuned for those!

From the looks of it, a lot of you would definitely be interested in listening to a podcast. Once Ace and I iron a few things out, we will make an announcement on it with a few details, as we would like to get the Community involved with it as well. Stay tuned!
This new poll idea was by Beastjasonx, so he will get 200 points for the idea. With that said, this one is more aimed at those who purchased PlayStation Plus. Basically, are you satisfied with the service?
