Well writing last week’s Chronicle was quite an interesting task. Although it clearly didn’t go down too well, or people might have actually commented!
Speaking of which, it certainly feels that interest in this weekly post is waning somewhat. Comment of The Week has become much trickier to manage without comment voting and pictures of rigs are few and far between these days. So, since we’re all open to fresh ideas here on TSA, do sound off in the comments about what kind of things you’d like to see be added to or replace this feature?
Having just said that not many people send things in for this, Shaggy2Dope sent in a boat load of images of his games collection. It’s a big one! I’ll hand over to Shaggy a moment:
One big, giant, neatly organized, tower of gaming junk! See if you can spot the one PC game. (hint: it’s my favorite game of ALL TIME!)
There’s some really nice collectables in there, from the God of War 3 chest to the Max Payne 3 model and even a SNES as the centrepiece!
This does all lead me to wonder whether this is actually Shaggy’s storage system. It all seems a tiny bit too precarious to me.
As always, if you’d like to have you gaming gear and gubbins featured in the Chronicle, just use the submission form at the bottom of the page to send stuff in.
There’s been a fair bit more motion around these parts, with plenty a game being polished off, or a speedy finish to some of the more recent releases which we’ve had.
R1MJAW got here a few months too late for the actual Olympics, but has a nice shiny Platinum for London 2012. Similarly, Shakugan has Silent Hill Downpour, Youles has Ico and blackredyellow has Castlevania Lords of Shadow (which he also took to 100% trophies with all the DLC) and a belated Borderlands 1 Platinum.
Speaking of Borderlands, the sequel was only out a few weeks ago, and sounds like it’s quite a hefty game to tackle. Element666 has finished his first play through on it, and quickly embarked on another, but it’s Crazy_Del who’s Speedy McSpeedy on yet another title, taking home the fastest Platinum award.
Samiro05 has performed a similar feat with The Testament of Sherlock Holmes. No, not “testicles”, but “testament”. There was some confusion over that one.
Going back to a bit of cooperative play, and it’s really nice to see Youles and Ron_McPhatty teaming up to help Ron get his 5th Platinum, in Portal 2. A lovely game in coop, and it sounds like the pair of them had a bit of fun getting there.
Finally, we see Steven Watch return, who has effectively rage quit Dark Souls for good after he lost 44,000 Souls and 15 points of Humanity when he was knocked off a ledge… I’m sure he’ll be back.
Whilst Comment of The Week probably won’t return after today (we’ll see), I figure it appropriate for it to go out with one last hurrah!
I have a handful of select comments from the last week, with a poll for you to vote on them with. We’ll start off with LTG Davey’s comments about Unfinished Swan. He says it’s “arty farty” and something that just doesn’t appeal to him! A shame, since I have a feeling it’s going to be another wonderful experience.
Taylor Made and FattyUK reminisce about when they both last had to switch discs part way through a game, and that cracking little joke made in MGS4.
Ico rightly points out that a game can still be good, even if the “graffix” aren’t up to snuff… Do you think this will hold true of Black Ops Declassified?
The next iPad. Will it be an iPad Mini, an iPad Junior, or perhaps an iPod Touch Maxi? Well, Forrest reckons the last option sounds like a sanitary towel.
Gamoc is spot on when he says that Charles Joblonski, Acting CEO of OnLive, has one utterly fantastic moustache!
