Wow, that week flew by! Perhaps it’s because I’ve left loads of coursework to do until the last minute again, so have been spending several late nights working away in the university library.
Anyway, seeing as I myself probably missed a fair bit of TSA content from this week, let’s crack on with this week’s Community Round-Up!
We’ll begin with the Meets, after briefly mentioning the Plus Points Challenge, for which you have until next saturday to get your entries in for the Don’t Starve Caption Competition.
Anyway, Vandix is hosting the usual Warframe Meet tomorrow night at 8pm, while Crazy_Del hosts the Killzone Meet on Monday, supposedly at 12pm (perhaps if Del is reading this he could confirm what time the Meet actually starts!).
If none of that takes your fancy, pop down your own Meet, assuming you’ve got 250 TSA points or more.
Beginning with the Previews, the biggest one we had this week was the upcoming Xbox and PC exclusive, Titanfall, which looks outstanding. Stefan also looked at inFamous: Second Son and Evolve, which is being made by the Left 4 Dead crew and for which there is also an interview.
The final preview came from Blair, who spoke to the guys at Image & Form about SteamWorld Dig and its future on PS4 and Vita.
On to the Reviews now, and let’s go in ascending order. So, starting at the bottom, Dom gave a 6/10 to Inazuma Eleven 3: Team Ogre Attacks for the 3DS. Moving up by 1 point was another handheld title, this time Toukiden, the Monster Hunter imitator for Vita, which Jim gave a 7/10.
Described as “one of, if not the scariest game I’ve played”, DanToo gave an 8/10 to Outlast, while War of the Human Tanks received a 9/10 from Aran. Lastly, The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC also received a 9/10 from Blair, which reminds me I am yet to pick up the game itself!
On now to the Community articles from the past 7 days, and the Chronicle’s hot topics included the new 3-year rotation for the COD studios, the lack of online in The Order: 1886 and the rather short Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, which can apparently be completed in just 2 hours.
Beyond: Two Souls proved to be a bit of a marmite game in its WeView Verdict, while Puppeteer, which probably slipped under quite a few of your radars due to it’s release being so close to GTA V, becomes the new WeView game for the week.
Time now for the Forums, and they’ve been quite busy this week:
- First up, Lyts1985 has a thread about Ghosts’ new customisation packs featuring Cpt. Price. There’s also talk of organising a Ghosts Infected Meet which is sure to be a great laugh, as would some meets revisiting the older games like COD4 and MW2.
- Boomshanks wonders if anyone’s up for roaming around Paradise City and getting some Burnout trophies.
- Taylor Made wants to know your thoughts on PSN displaying your real name?
- And lastly Ron McPhatty has a thread for the Winter Olympics.
Well that’s it for this week. I guess I better get back to all this coursework – hopefully I’ll still be sane enough to be back next week! Bye!
