The biggest piece of news this week’s was the Xbox’s One Eighty (see what I did there?) [you and the rest of the internet – Tef] on its controversial features which seems to have been well received by everyone. Anyway, now that balance in the universe has been restored, let’s check out what’s been happening on TSA in this week’s Community Round-Up!
The TSA E3 Bingo Competition Results were posted yesterday; well done to FriendlyFiend and RyanMartin, who were our winners! You can check out all the scores, and also compare how well you did against the staff to gain some serious bragging rights.
I imagine Monday night’s GT5 meet and Forrest’s Battlefield meet should pop up within a day or two, and there’s even talk of picking up the old Killzone Boot Camps again. Keep checking back to see if anything else gets set up, or create your own meet provided you’ve got 250 TSA points.
Only two reviews this week, with Blair’s 8/10 for Game & Wario and Jim’s 6/10 take on DUST 514, the console sidekick to the massively popular EVE Online, but it’s nice to see that there are also previews from E3 still trickling through.
Firstly there’s Kris’s hands on with Ubisoft’s new racer, The Crew. He also had a look at Watch Dogs’ open world, and also OlliOlli, the Vita’s new 2D skateboarding game. Meanwhile Peter overdosed on Zombies, first with Dead Rising 3, and then with The Walking Dead: 400 Days.
Tactical20 showed off his rig in the Chronicle, while fan favourite BioShock Infinite becomes the focus of WeView. Aran’s Matter of Perspective Series looked at God of War, while IndieFocus got held up at Gunpoint.
Following the news that Microsoft were pulling a 180º turn on the Xbox One, with regards to the online DRM and pre-owned restrictions, Jim asked whether the damage had already been done, especially as Microsoft haven’t guaranteed they won’t reintroduce the controversial features further down the line. Tuffcub looked at the humorous side, with his Top Ten Xbox One Quotes. As always, Greg rounds things off with What We Played #110.
Heading on into the Forums now, it’s great to see them looking so busy:
- Fillip2k’s thread seems to be the place to talk about The Last of Us – but avoid it if you don’t like spoilers!
- OneDown shares his views that the One’s u-turn is bad for us and the industry.
- Salvodaze asks if anyone’s playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf?
- Bunimomike wades in on the PC vs Console argument.
- With the PC Summer sales soon to kick off, Airou’s thread may be one to keep your eye on for great deals.
- Bambo‘s currently on a lucky streak.
- And finally Youles shows off TSA’s youngest fan.
And that wraps things up for yet another week. By the time you’re reading this, I should hopefully be jetting off to warmer climates, but I’ll leave you in capable hands. So until next time, bye!
This post was, as usual, crafted by the incredibly crafty Gazzagb. I hope he enjoys his big trip.
