Another week has zoomed by, and what also seems to have disappeared is any form of warmth in my student house! I’m sitting here wearing three hoodies! Anyway, enough of that. Let’s get on with this week’s Community Round-Up!
We’ve got two tickets to see the Distant Worlds Final Fantasy Concert in Chicago on December 7th. It’s being held in Chicago, so if you can get there (we can’t cover expenses, I’m afraid) all you need to do is pop in the comments what your favourite Final Fantasy song is and then leave it to random.org to decide!
The Friday Fun Competition continues as usual, and yesterday saw an anagram quiz. I wonder what ridiculously tricky nonsense Lewis will come up with for next week?
The Meets kick off with Teflon’s F1 2012 meet at 5pm on Sunday, featuring a 50% race around Brazil. Then the usual DiRT Showdown meet starts at 6pm, hosted by R1MJAW, and OnlineAssassin’s NFS: Most Wanted meet follows later at 8pm.
Monday night sees Youles hosting a Black Ops 2 meet at 8pm, with the usual Max Payne 3 meet at 9pm, hosted by Forrest. Again Forrest is back with the second DiRT Showdown meet taking place on Tuesday at 8pm.
I’m sure you can expect the usual Red Dead Redemption or Battlefield meets to pop up during the week, or why not create your own Meet provided you have 250 TSA points?
The busy Q4 period must be practically over, as we’ve got no real Previews or Reviews for you this week. There’s surely some Wii U content coming next week, but the Christmas lull is seemingly upon us already.
Filling the void has been Alex with a Kart-off between LBP:Karting, F1 Race Stars and Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed, an interview with Peter Molyneux, and an early look at Ratchet & Clank: Q-Force. He also ponders on what went wrong for Playstation All Stars (spoiler alert: no-one bought it!), and whether It might have been a shade better on PSN.
The Chronicle featured Forrest’s rig, while WeView moved onto PixelJunk Eden after giving Resident Evil 5 a ‘bargain bin it’ verdict. Then there’s also What We Played #81 from Greg. Lastly, Episode 84 of the Podcast has landed and is available to download.
Let’s jump into the Forums now to check out what’s been happening this past week:
- SpikeyMikey has a thread for FarCry 3, which got released yesterday.
- Mike wants to know your thoughts on the Wii U if you’ve got one.
- Upgraded to iTunes 11? Mcphatty has a thread just for you. Fill it with whinging and moaning about how Apple have royally messed up the interface, and maybe get a few tips and tricks to find the features you’re missing.
- F1 Fans can already start discussing the 2013 season in Death_in_Flamez’s thread.
- Forrest brings us the unfortunate news he could be getting made redundant, which means we’ll be seeing a lot less of him around here
- And another person we’re going to miss is Steven who’s experiencing some technical problems.
Once again that’s everything we’ve got for you this time. I’ll see you next week, have a good one!
