Community Round-Up: 27/07/13

TSA looks like it’s gearing up for a redesign on Monday – or at least that’s what I’m betting on. Anyway, until then, let’s have a look at what’s already happened on TSA in this week’s Community Round-Up!

I probably don’t need to keep reminding you that our competition with pricespy.co.uk is still open, but closing soon. We’re giving you the chance to win a PS Vita and 12 months worth of PS+, it’s really simple, so get a move on if you haven’t already entered!

Again it’s looking really quiet on the Meets front. As I write this, we have just Manorhowze’s GT5 Meet on Monday at 7pm and the Killzone 2 Boot Camp from Vandix on Tuesday at 7PM.

Fingers crossed the usual Grid 2, DiRT and Battlefield Meets appear later on during the week, or you can add your own Meet to the list, providing you’ve got more than 250 TSA Points.

After a couple of quiet weeks, the Reviews and Previews section is looking healthy again. Aran gave the PSN game Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark an 8/10, while Tuffcub also gave 8/10 to another PSN game, Thunder Wolves. Jim brings us our last review of this week, which was Dynasty Warriors 8, which you guessed it, received an 8/10. Blair also revisited Just Cause 2 and its new multiplayer mod that can handle 5,000 players in a single server!

All the Previews this week had a bit of motion to their pictures, so let’s begin with Rayman Legends from Peter, which continues on with Origins’ gorgeous art style. Alex looked at Killzone Mercenary for Vita, while Tef dived into the world of Saints Row IV, full of shooting, explosions and all the ridiculousness that you’d expect. Tef also had a word with Jim Boone, Senior Producer at Volition, Inc.

From the community articles, the Chronicle featured a gaming rig that plays fetch, chase the tail and bite the finger at an impressive 1080p, 60fps. No, wait, I’m actually talking about Peter’s adorable new puppy, Winter!

Super Stardust Delta received a unanimous Buy It decision for this week’s WeView Verdict. The next game almost certainly won’t get the same Verdict, as Aliens: Colonial Marines is already gathering some pretty scathing feedback, so grab your pitchfork and join in the comments!

As we’re now halfway into 2013, we decided to have a recap of TSA’s Top 100 of 2013 to see how the games are currently looking, or how they did if they’ve already been released. So far, we’ve had a look at 100 through to 76, all of which can be found by following this very handy link.

This week, Aran and the Matter of Perspective feature looked at the world of BioShock, while Gamoc looked at Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians in Indie Focus. Finally, though the podcast skipped another week, we simply wouldn’t be complete without What We Played #115 from Greg.

The Forums are looking nice and busy, with lots of discussion going on this week:

That’s everything covered for this week. I’m off to play more Dota 2, which I’ve recently got into, although I’m hopelessly terrible at it! Hopefully I’ll have improved slightly by next week when I see you next – bye!

– As always, this round up was dutifully collated and crafted by Gazzagb.

    We’ve only 4 in the Head to head as compared to 15 in the Classic.
