Community Round-Up: 16/03/13

Albert is in the Park.

With Gazza off on a “field trip”, which I can only assume means a week long booze-fest in a foreign land, it falls to me to pull together this week’s round-up. So without much further ado, lets get on with it!

It seems that last week’s fixtures for the Black Ops 2 League took a bit longer than was hoped, and didn’t manage to produce any video either! So, with that in mind, there’s an extra-long period in which this current set of matches can be played.

I must say that the A-Team seem to be running away with it, currently sitting on a 3 for 3 win record. No doubt this was their plan all along, and they must love how it’s coming together. Hopefully Team Spaffy Waffle (a little known South American delicacy, if I’m not mistaken) can give them a run for their money. They’re also on a winning streak, and have a match in hand.

Grand Slam decider, anyone?

Kicking off the meets this week, we have an F1 2012 gathering, set to start tomorrow at 4PM. That should let you get up early to watch the race, go back to bed, and still wake up in time to do a few laps of your own.

Sadly, it sounds like Youles doesn’t get on so well with Lara anymore, so R1MJAW has taken up the burden of looking after the Tomb Raider meets, which are on Monday night at 8PM and Wednesday night at 8PM.

That’s all that has popped up so far, but I bet you 99p that Manorhowze will set up a GT5 meet for Monday night.

You can always host your own meets if you have 250 TSA points and know how to fill out a form.

We saw three reviews this week, with Ninja Gaiden Σ2 Plus hitting the PS Vita, and Jim giving it a generally favourable review. Al dove into the blocky world of LEGO City: Undercover, and there’s also a 9/10 for Ridiculous Fishing, a smart phone game from Vlambeer.

Jim’s back with a preview of Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel, getting his mask on to give his impressions of the demo. Blair gave his impressions of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and where it sits in the franchise. Also, I went hands and eyes on with Dead Island: Riptide, to see what next month’s release will hold for the title, and gave a kind of pseudo first look, re-preview thing on playing Real Racing 3 for free… it being a free to play game.

While Tuffcub lambasted The Daily Mail’s games coverage, the duo of Kris and Aran tackled the online debate kicked up by SimCity from two very different angles. Kris pondered owning a PS3 and never, ever taking it online, whilst Aran is certain that there’s a much better solution for the future of gaming than the always online shenanigans of SimCity, Diablo 3 and Co.

Speaking of which, Diablo III’s WeView Verdict came in, before moving along to F1 Race Stars, and the Chronicle saw Colmshan sharing where he plays his games. We round things up as usual with the weekly Podcast and What We Played #96.

Before we move on, though, there are a truly ridiculous number of trailers in last week’s Trailer Park. Kudos to Tuffcub for wading through all of that!

Finally, we head to the forums, where you can see:

That would seem to be the end of the round-up. So, I’ll be seeing you tomorrow for another Chronicle, and I believe that Gazza will be back to take up the article herding duties next week.

In the mean time, I hope you all enjoy the plethora of awesome sporting events this weekend. Rugby and F1! Huzzah!

    Statistically, the A-team are the underdogs but I’m hoping we can prove that stats don’t mean everything! It will be a good match either way, and I’ll be sure to have a video for it as you can’t live stream private games. I would have done videos for last week but things just got a bit messed up with our match not having recording enabled and the other match being so late. Thanks for organising the league though we are having a lot of fun.

      Yeh the League is a great idea. I’m having a blast with A-Team. Any word on the next competition? Will there be another CODBLOPS2 comp or is it possible throw an idea in the mix and do a competative zombies competition on Grief mode. Just a thought.

      That’ll be a £5 administration fee, and also a quid in the jar for crimes against apostrophes! ;-)

        I thought it was £50 for the admin fee and a tenner for the crime? Why do i never get the bloody memo about the change in prices?

    charm you with a wave of my hand
    you bow to my command

    Ayreon, you’re an evil stranger
    Ayreon, you’ve become a danger
    your words are all but a lie
    I vow that ye shall die

    I don’t have a bloody addiction Tef! You do! The community team office is 98% Toeshoe because of you. We are lucky if we can move 1 metre without tripping over the dam things. Also, Gazzagb may have quit due to Lord Hat threatening him into buying him an easter egg. Bloody dictator. Lord hat doesn’t frighten me and he can’t bully me into buying him an easter egg. NEVER!
