Hello! TSAâ€™s been a bit quiet this week, as the whole industry seems to be getting reading for the Christmas break. There’s not a lot of news, apart from last night’s VGAs, and only a few reviews, but thereâ€™s still enough going on for you in this weekâ€™s Community Round-Up!
The Friday Fun Competition is still on-going. Yesterday the missing letters quiz returned, so I hope you did well with them as itâ€™s not long till itâ€™s finished – the final quiz will take place on the 21st, with the winner being announced on Christmas Eve.
Oh, and there’s always that big reader survey which you could fill out for a chance to win a 500GB PS3!
Thatâ€™s all there is right now, but keep checking it for the usual meets that pop up during the week. There might be FIFA, Battlefield, and much more, or you could create your own Meet as long as you have more than 250 TSA points.
The first of the Wii U coverage rolls in with a worrying review of Tank! Tank! Tank!,Â with 3/10 from Peter. It’s not the score that’s worrying though, it’s more that he put up with it for so long!
Somewhat better was New Super Mario Bros. U‘s Â 7/10 from Dan. He got to say “New” a lot.Â
Iâ€™m glad to say weâ€™ve got a couple of previews for you this week. First is Teflonâ€™s preview of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, which is sounding like a massive improvement over the first game. We also have Blairâ€™s preview of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, which seems to be very good, both for existing fans and newcomers to the series. Finally, Al went hands on with the THPS HD DLC. That’s one hell of an acronym.
Blair explored the theme of â€˜Choicesâ€™ on Sunday, whilst Peter admitted heâ€™s never played a God of War game (neither have I for that matter). Peter also looked at where the Hitman Facebook App went wrong, during the few hours it was live, and Aran put all the statistics popping up surrounding THQ’s 40% stock price rise into better context.
Meanwhile, the much anticipated TSAâ€™s Top 100 of 2013 kicked off with firstly a short intro, followed by games #100-#96 and #95-#91. Finally, in What We Played #82, most of the gang get stuck into their new Wii U games.
Onto the Forums now, letâ€™s see what our Community has been discussing:
- Following this weeks PS Store update, Youles has a little rant to get things off his chest.
- Sympozium starts a screenshot thread for you to show off your PC games.
- A Inferior Race plays a little game of Whoâ€™s That? See how well you can do!
- SpikeyMikey asks that all important question – Zombies vs Aliens?
- Sympozium also asks for some hints about switching PS3 HDDs and how best to do it… It’s a bit complicated.
Iâ€™m off next week as I wonâ€™t be in the country, but Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™ll be leaving you in someone’s capable hands! Bye!
