I’m currently battling away with man-flu, so there’s a high chance I could drop dead or overdose on Lemsip before I finish, but I’ll persevere with trying to bring you this week’s Community Round-Up!
There’s not a lot of competitions going on right now, but TSA’s Black Ops 2 league is well underway, with week 3’s fixtures being posted earlier this week. You’ll also find the early results and some video of what went on included.
Looks like the A Team are doing quite well!
It’s great to see the Meets section is alive and kicking again, so let’s start with Motella’s Burnout Paradise Meet at 7pm tonight. Tomorrow, also at 7pm, Motella returns with a BF3 Meet featuring the End-Game DLC.
The DiRT Showdown Meet returns on Tuesday night, hosted by Forrest at 8pm. On Wednesday, Youles reappears with yet another Tomb Raider Meet at 8pm, and lastly, Motella wraps things up with a Dead or Alive 5 Meet on Friday at 7pm.
If there’s nothing there that takes your fancy, you can create your own Meet provided you’ve got 250 TSA Points.
Now it’s time to take our regular look at the week’s reviews, and Alex headlines with the highly anticipated God of War: Ascension, giving it an 8/10. Aran gave a solid 8/10 to the Zen Pinball 2: Star Wars DLC, while Alex also looked at Life of Pixel, a Playstation Mobile game, and gave it 7/10. Lastly, Peter had a quick peak at Tomb Raider with TSAtv, and from what I’ve heard everyone else say about it, it really is a great game, something that Alex backed up when he took a look at the game.
On the previews side of things, Tuffcub was lucky enough to be invited to Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag’s announcement event, which sounds brilliant to me, even though details are sparse. Tef followed on from Al’s review of Ascension with an interview with two of the lead developers on the title and Al himself wondered why Ascension’s review scores are lower than some previous entries.
Continuing with the blogs, Origami Killer (who as you can probably guess was a big fan of Heavy Rain), wrote about his excitement for Quantic Dream’s Beyond. Dom El also chipped in asking the question: Will Gamers Ever Be Satisfied? Finally Blair looked at if the best games make the most money.
Fillip2k unleashed his gaming rig in the Chronicle, while Need For Speed: Most Wanted got a slightly mixed verdict, although it still got a favourable ‘Buy It’ recommendation. Diablo 3, the once-PC exclusive that is now headed to PS3 and PS4 later this year becomes the next game in this week’s WeView.
Let’s take a look at the TSA Forums now, although they’ve been a bit quiet over the past week:
- TaylorMade is looking for a new PS3 Headset, and you can share your recommendations here.
- Bunimomike asks where does the money go to from a £30 game?
- And Mike also has a gentle reminder about Mother’s day tomorrow, which natually has been thrown right off-topic.
- A slightly soused Origami Killer shares his alcohol fueled antics with us all, and we get a good giggle out of it all from the next day.
- Lastly, with the Formula 1 season kicking off next weekend, TSA’s Fantasy F1 League returns!
That’s it once again, I’m off on for a week long field trip so I’ll miss next week. However I’ll see you soon, bye!
