Changes are afoot! There’s a new twist to this weekly feature, which we’ll get to down below, and necessitates a second page to the article.
Before we get to that, though, we have our regular segments:
This week it’s a bit of a game of Spot The Difference. We had MadJunkBoy showing off his wares a couple months back, but since then he’s made a few changes. Can you tell what they are?
The first photo is of his old layout, and the second of his new one.
For the cheat sheet, here’s MJB:
Hello again TSA! I am back, and this time I have updated pictures!
Remember my old setup? You do?! You stalker! Anyway, if you’re not stalking me you can see it in the first picture. Picture 2 is my updated setup, where I got rid of the old TV and took the White TV-Bench for myself. Then in the last picture you have my new friend: a Razer Megalodon! The Headset is awesome! The only downside is that it’s not compatible with the PS3, my guess it’s because of the Maelstrom Audio Engine which you can see to the right of the headset.
Well that was my improved setup. So, what do you think? Be honest!
Looks good, MJB!
If you’d like to show off your games set up, whether it’s awesome, rubbish, awesomely rubbish, or just a bit pants, use the entry form below to send in a photo or four to me.
Alright, we’ll start things off with a couple new fastest platinums, with blackredyellow taking Lord of The Rings: War in the North (alongside a non-fastest Sniper Elite V2 platinum), and Crazy_Del persisting with Medal of Honor: Warfighter to the Platinum.
Did he enjoy the game? Well, Yogdog didn’t. In response to Del’s accomplishment he said: “Congrats! I couldn’t force myself to play that [awful] game. I actually felt like I’d been ripped off by EA.” Sadly Del “Couldn’t agree more. Does feel rip off. Campaign very short. MP is broken but I got used to them. Hardest trophy is Hardcore mode.”
So I think that’s a big fat thumbs down. Disappointing. Maybe Black Ops 2 will fare a little better? We’ll have to wait and see, but Tobo would like a little help getting the last couple of trophies he needs for its predecessor, Modern Warfare 3. Are you interested?
Youles is also gearing up for playing some new games, having polished off Rage at 2AM of a morning, but Samiro05 is already on the new stuff, adding Dishonored to his own list of things.
Another new guy on the block is Parryman. Well, he’s been around on TSA for half a year, but he’s only just got his fourth platinum from Lego Batman 2, and two of those were from Motorstorm: RC! Keep plugging away at them, chap.
We finish up with some extracts from Yogdog’s short story of his gaming exploits of late. I’m rather sceptical that he did all of this in the last week, but you can get the whole thing here. Some mightily impressive stuff in there, including:
- Completed XCOM: Enemy Unknown on Normal Ironman difficulty, next up is Classic Ironman.
- Finally won my week long (in terms of an hour every here and there for a week) battle against 7 hard AI in a free for all on Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion on a huge map.
- Started to play through the Command and Conquer Generals campaigns on Hard difficulty, really fun. Got the GLA and USA ones done, just need to complete the final mission on the Chinese one before I move on to Zero Hour.
- Completed FTL for the second time with the Kestral, great ship to use if you get the right setup. Will continue playing it now and again, need to unlock a few more ships.
Well, what’s next Yogdog? “Need to actually continue playing Dishonoured and Borderlands 2 but I think Blops 2 will be the game dominating my week off next week. Zombie mode!”
Alright guys, it’s time for some new stuff, and this comes in the form of… well… old stuff, I guess. A couple of weeks ago a inferior race approached me about getting the trophy leaderboards integrated into the Chronicle. Some of you mentioned this in the comments last week, but hand on heart we were already working on it!
Happens every time.
So, from here on, alternating between one and the other each week, we’ll have the trophy leaderboard and the fastest platinum leaderboards over on page two. You should still put your trophies in the forum thread over here.
You can head there now, but first the usual submission form:
Head over to page 2 for the tables.
