Oh dear. Gazza’s been preoccupied this week, so it’s time for that long overdue Christmas Spectacular from Steven.
Seeing as Gaz is being a Student at the moment, he got hammered and is currently recovering from his hangover, so I’ve been drafted in to do this week’s round up. Without any further delay let’s start the round up and chew gum!
I don’t have gum so can we just chew French mustard and southern fried chicken sandwiches instead?
There’s a few meets planned for next week. Teflon has finally decided that playing with you horrible lot is worth doing and wants to play F1 with you on Sunday at 4pm. He may try to give your car a MOT. [Actually, I unfortunately can't make it, but Freeze is going to host as usual. Good luck! - Tef]
There’s Dirt Showdown with R1MJAW on Sunday at 6, and later Kitch wants you to join him in Borderlands 2 to kick some arse and chew gum, wait… wrong franchise. To infinity and beyond! Wait, that’s not the right franchise, either. Oh, forget the catchphrase, he still wants you to join him on Sunday at 9. It is only a 4 player affair as it can’t handle more than 4 TSAers at a time.
Manorhouse wants you to meet up and discuss cars in GT5 on Monday at 7. I suspect it will be like Top Gear only with less arguing and no Stig. Motalla wants you to join in and stare at the fighters in DOA5 on Thursday at 8pm and also bring back the KZ3 boot on Friday at 8! Oh, and there is a Dirt Showdown meet at 7 from Youles.
Time to see what the staff has done this week. Tef played some of Anarchy Reigns online, for the only preview this week, and someone interviewed the crazy looking people at Futurlab so they could talk about Velocity Ultra, that thing we all asked for.
I’m told Peter wanted to do a weekly feature called “Beers of gaming” but was turned down as Kris couldn’t understand what the article was saying. So instead he made a list of what games taught him in 2012, and what Nvidia’s ugly Shield might mean for the future. Al tells us that the PlayStation 4 won’t be announced next month, and looks behind the walls and in the shadows of The Unfinished Swan, which is this week’s WeView too.
Greg brought us the usual edition of What We Played. I played Demon Souls and proceeded to tear my entire spine out of my back in frustration. I got better the day afterwards only for Tuffcub to show us all a Sonic short film! Oh, and a big new Trailer Park, too.
As usual, the lazy hippy who has taken to referring to himself as Lord Toeshoe of the bearded people did the weekly Chronicle with Roy’s gaming windowsill on show. AG Brokehat Mountain asked what we wanted to see from the community team in 2013. The lazy CENSORED, don’t you dare censor me you CENSOR CENSORED REDACTED! Oh, and he also CENSORED… Oh, come on! He also spoke about what happened to the community.
Time to see what has happened in the forums this week.
- I finally announced the winners of the 2012 awards. I was kidnapped, thus explaining the delay. It was those damn cats with the thumbs.
- Sympozium or Blargozium (I forget what he calls himself now) has a small problem (with added MDMA).
- Skib is giving away free online passes. YAY! Free stuff!
- That Origami Welsh bloke wants to talk about Far Cry 3.
- Speaking of which, should Welsh football be banished from England?
That is all from me this week and before we fade to black in mid sentence, Gaz will be back next wee……
- Uh, thanks to Steven for filling in for Gazza this week… I think…
