Hello again! It’s been yet another busy week here on TSA, so let’s get down to business and see exactly what’s been going on in this weeks’ Community Roundup!
Nothing new this week, as we wait for the first post in the F1 Championship to appear and the winner of the PS Vita competition to be announced.
There’s also something new to look for in the not so distant future.
For now, we wait.
Jumping straight in with the Meets, let’s see what’s coming up this week:
The second DiRT Showdown meet takes place on Tuesday at 8pm, also hosted by Forrest. Forrest is clearly going to be getting a lot of gaming in this week as on Thursday he’s also hosting a Ridge Racer Unbound meet at 9pm. An hour later, R1MJAW hosts a THPS HD meet at 10pm.
Lastly, Friday sees Youles host a Red Dead Redemption meet at 8pm, although it’s filled up quickly!
Keep checking back for any other Meets which appear such as the usual BF3 meet, or create your own gaming get-together provided you have at least 250 TSA Points.
Kicking things off with Alex’s awesome review of The Unfinished Swan, it’s definitely worth checking out just for the awesome layout! He’s also written an article on how he created it, if you’re interested.
Moving on, Jim got stuck in with War of the Roses, giving the Medieval FPS a solid 7/10. Continuing with the PC theme, Gamoc looked at Torchlight 2, the much anticipated sequel, giving it an impressive 9/10. Peter also took a quick look at Doom 3 BFG Edition, while Aran dribbles in with his 8/10 review of NBA 2K13, and Blair drools over Pokémon Black & White 2, with a 9/10.
The only new games Previews this week are Alex’s take on LittleBigPlanet Karting, and it’s definitely one to keep an eye on if you’re a fan of LBP or Karting games, and his interesting early glimpse of Forza Horizon, which is out next week so keep your eyes peeled for the full review. Teflon also has a gander at Meccano’s new lines of game based toys and models.
Moving on now to the Community articles, let’s begin with the Community Chronicle, which this week had Sitorimon showing off his massive collection in an 11 minute video! For WeView this week, catch the Verdict for Sound Shapes, or leave your views of Wipeout 2048.
Other articles on TSA this week include Aran looking at where the Resident Evil series has come from and where it’s headed, while Vaughn Highfield writes an open letter to Lionhead regarding the Fable: The Journey. Peter wrote about how Minecraft rode in to saved the day after a string of disappointments from LBP2 and a PS3, as Sunday Thoughts last week said Happy Birthday to Peter.
Now let’s move onto the Forums and see what’s been happening:
- Mokey01 needs some help choosing between XCOM and Dishonored.
- Have you always wanted a beard, but haven’t been able to grow one? Well GTOWN has discovered a product just for you! The brand-spanking new Beenie-Beard! (Yes, this is serious!)
- YourMumAndMe was banned from PSN this week without warning just because of his name and is rightly complaining about it.
- Teflon finally set up the thread for this year’s F1 Championship. It’s already stuffed full of videos and discussion.
- Al made some wooden and blocky representations of some PS3 games. Can you guess what they are?
Last week, Corvo from Dishonored battled against Connor from the upcoming Assassin’s Creed 3. It was a close fight, but Corvo narrowly gained victory 3 points to 2.
I’ve decided to give the Showdown a short break – we’ve been running it every week since almost the start of the year after it was requested by the you, the Community. It’ll probably only be a short hiatus, as once the Q4 releases have really got into full flow there’ll be plenty more competitors standing by. Remember, if there’s anyone you would like to see, just pop it in the comments below and we’ll see what we can do!
Anyway, that’s all for this week, I’ll see you next time, bye!
