Community Round-Up: 21/06/14

Sports and previews.

It doesn’t seem to be going England’s way recently with regards to sporting events, does it? Our World Cup hopes are already dashed and we’ve lost the series in the Rugby too, but fingers crossed we put in a good performance this morning against the All Blacks. I’m also hoping for some good results in the F1 as we return to Austria for the first time in 11 years; hopefully there will be some good racing too!

Anyway, enough talk about sport, let’s focus on gaming and TSA for this week’s Community Round-Up!

TSA’s FIFA World Cup Competition kicked off this week, with the fixtures for the Round of 32 being published. If you haven’t already played your match, you need to get a move on as this first stage of the tournament finishes at 6pm on Tuesday!

In other Competition news, the results of this year’s TSA E3 Bingo were posted. Kris and Takyu came joint top, with a score of 15, so congratulations to them.

Maybe it’s the lull in releases we’re having right now, but there’s nothing currently planned for the TSA Meets, aside from the regular GT6 on a Monday night, and Red Dead Redemption on a Wednesday night. Feel free to pop a meet down on the list, provided you have at least 250 TSA Points.

There were quite a few Previews this week. Blair looked at the huge world of The Witcher 3 (along with an interview with the Lead Producer), and the Kraken in the higly anticipated Evolve. He also looked at the likes of PlayStation TV, which he describes as “one of the most impressive pieces of kit I’ve seen”, while he fell in love with Toggle, one LittleBIGPlanet 3’s new characters.

Peter wrote about how Pillars of Eternity was bringing back classic dungeon crawling and he was full of praise in his Driveclub preview, saying, “I played several of the upcoming racing games at E3 this year and Driveclub was, by some distance, the most impressive”.

The last Previews came in from Jim and Tuffcub, who looked at Shadow of Mordor and Destiny’s Alphafor which there’s also ‘14 things you need to know about the game from Jim.

On the Review front, a mystery reviewer gave a 7/10 to Pokémon Art Academy for the 3DS, while A Story About My Uncle also received a 7/10, this time from Sam. Playstation Vita Pets fared slightly worse, earning a 6/10 from Jim.

Hitman Sniper featured on Mobile Watch from Blair, meanwhile Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was revisited in PlayBack with Jim. This week, Aran looked at Asura’s Wrath in a Matter of Perspective.

From the Blogs, Gareth explained the Importance of Indie Games, while Jim looked at why, thanks to a mod, the ultimate Game of Thrones game may already exist. There was also a final update to TSA’s E3 Travel Diary, where you can catch the whole series here.

WeView returned to normal this week, with a short, but sweet verdict for Ratchet & Clank: Nexus, as The Bureau: XCOM Declassified entered as the newest game to get the WeView treatment. In the Chronicle, Hot Topics featured plenty of post-E3 discussion, including Uncharted 4, GTA V and Project CARS.

To end off the articles, the guys in LA recorded a final E3 Podcast along with Alex (aka nofi) and Will, a colleague at Just Add Water, while Greg has What We Played #161

And just before we end, time for a quick look at the new threads in the Forums:

  • Youles has a dig around for Sniper Elite III‘s trophy list, and also wonders who else is getting the game.
  • With the Steam sale kicking off earlier this week, it may be a good idea to keep your eye on the Deals and Discounts thread, or it may be a better idea to just hide your wallet!
  • And lastly, A Inferior Race really doesn’t like Adrian Chiles.

That’s it for this weekend’s round-up. It’s been quite a busy week, and I can’t see next week’s being any quieter! So until next time, bye!
