So, it’s the last weekend before Halloween, and that means it’s time to break out the scariest possible thing we can come up with… Maybe not scary, but it’ll make your eyes bleed, because Steven’s back to write this week’s round-up.
Itâ€™s nearly Halloween, folks, and Benedict the Bearded, He Who is Afraid of Spiders and Sir Cowboy Hat of the Pink are having a party. Benedict is dressed as a normal shoe, Spider dressed as Spiderman and cowboy hat is a cowbell? Oh great, itâ€™s going to be a repeat of the Christmas party again, isnâ€™t it?
Thereâ€™s a Meccano competition that is being ran by bearded hippy shoes but I doubt you are interested in that. But if you are, just leave a comment or tweet before the end of tomorrow. The winner will be selected by how much random.org likes you.
If you’re wondering about the F1 results post, which have been missing for the last week, unfortunately Death_in_Flamez has been suffering with computer issues for several days, but rest assured that it will finally be going live later today! – Tef
Oh, and the resident cowgirl hat wearing chocolate addict announced the winner of the Vita comp, so you can stop entering now. No I mean it, please stop.
If you stalk Tef or Adam, you may discover that we have some comps being baked in our top secret lab located just north of TSA towers.
OK, so Steven didn’t even write this bit… – Tef
Really rather quiet this week, but I’m sure this is a hiccup, considering how last night saw an absolutely jam packed Red Dead Redemption meet. It seems pretty popular, so maybe it’ll pop up again?
Tuesday sees Motalla bringing a Dead of Alive 5 meet at 7PM, then there’s the secondÂ DiRT Showdown meetÂ takes place on Tuesday at 8pm, hosted by Forrest. Finally, it’s Forrest yet again, as he’s hosting Thursday’sÂ Ridge Racer Unbound meetÂ at 9pm.
Keep checking back for any other Meets or create your own gaming get-together provided you have at least 250 TSA Points.
Anyway, itâ€™s time for features and no, Iâ€™m not talking about Bunimomikeâ€™s weekly “sit on my lap and receive a gift” feature.
There were only three reviews this week. Al showed us his review of Super Monkey Ball for the Vita and Arran reviewed Of Orcs and Men, whilst Blair kicked back and dreamt about how awesome a PokĂ©mon radar would be. Then he reviewed PokĂ©mon Dream Radar, which was rubbish. ThatÂ explains why theyâ€™ve been sitting around do naff all in the office all week!
Time for some previews! Kris nearly wet himself when we told him he could do a preview for Halo 4. Al got into his F1 car, well a red cardboard box shaped like a F1 car, and gave us a preview of F1 Race Stars. Then Kris decided to hijack the rest of the previews and told us about that emo… [Seems Steven's a bit bitter about this one - Tef] told us about that DMC game. And he asked us if we remember Commandos whilst going commando, before he told us about Company of Heroes 2.
We found out what you horrible/lovely lot thought of Wipeout 2048 in this weekâ€™s Weview Verdict, not the TV show called Total Wipeout. I could tell you the result but then I would have to feed you to GTOWN. Ahem, where was I? Oh yes, this weekâ€™s Weview included some Twisted Metal.
TefÂ chronicled the events that happened in the communityÂ and was disappointed that he received no pictures. Although I did send a picture of me doing the windmill whilst standing in front of my gaming rig. Did Adam just bite a sausage off the ice statue of Val Kilmer!? Is Spiderboy doing the forbidden dance with a pair of melons? I didnâ€™t order any melons for the party.
Letâ€™s see whatâ€™s been happening in the zoo forums.
- Sympozium is annoyed about something. I canâ€™t tell if heâ€™s broken a nail or if his copy of Dark Souls stole his job again.
- Matt wonders if Borderlands 2 is less violent? The answer is pizza.
- Yourmumandme is still banned by Sony.
- And GTOWN needs our help.
Be careful when exploring the General Chat forum, as itâ€™s B-mikeâ€™s time of the year again.
The Showdown is still taking a break, and Tef has threatened to shove a spiked toe-shoe up me if I include it.
The party seems to have gone a bit quieter. Is it finished? Why is Gazâ€™s head shoved into somewhere NFSW on the ice statue? Why does Tef have a punch bowl on his head and Adam is covered in cake? Iâ€™m outta here as I suspect they will blame me for throwing a party that resulted in this.
Iâ€™ll see you lot at Christmas, if Tef allows me.
Yeah, the jury’s out on that one. I’m surprised you managed to make it this far, though I’m sure that has a lot to do with me liberally deleting some of Steven’s ramblings.
Normal service should be resumed next week. Have a happy Halloween!
