Community Round-Up: 05/07/14

It’s scary how fast 2014 is going, with July already upon us. I guess the good thing is that means we’re edging closer to the busiest, and in my opinion best time of the year for releases. But while there’s still another couple of months until the Autumn releases truly start, let’s take a look at the past 7 days in this week’s Community Round-Up!

CRU Banner - comps plus

TSA’s Plus Points Challenge wrapped up this week following the results of the PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate round. I don’t think it came as a surprise to anyone that Lieutenant Fatman was crowned overall champion and won himself a years PS+ subscription, which he thoroughly deserves for his hard work and dedication! Everyone else also deserves a pat on the back for their efforts for taking part in the championship, and Tony should also get a mention for his brilliant job of organising it all!

Tony has also brought us an update for Week 3 of TSA’s FIFA World Cup Competition, which has now progressed to the quarter finals, although there are still some previous matches to be completed.

CRU Banner - meets red dead

On the Meets front, it looks like it will be the usual GT6 on Monday, RDR on Tuesday and/or Wednesday, and BF4 on Friday. As per usual, you can always add your own Meet to the list, providing you’ve got more than 250 TSA Points.

Stefan brings us the first two reviews of this week, with MotoGP 14 earning a 7/10 on PS4, while Light, a stealth game for PC, earned itself a 6/10. The other review this week came from Tuffcub, who had a look at Shadow Fall’s Intercept DLC, which added a co-op mode to the game. Sadly, the long loading times combined with repetitive waves of enemies and occasional bugs left him far from impressed.

Looking at the Previews, Blair and Stefan were on duty this week. Blair seemed to love the concept of Borderlands on the moon in the upcoming Pre-Sequel, and Hyrule Warriors sounds like it should tide over Zelda fans as the wait for the next full game in the series.

Stefan had a look at the upcoming Dead Island 2, which is set in sunny California, before focusing on Mordheim, a tactical turn-based RPG, based on the Games Workshop game of the same name. And whilst not a preview, he also sat down with Brian Fleming, Producer on inFamous: First Light to talk about the game.

Gareth looked at Crimsonland in Indie Focus, while Jim went back to Dead Space 2 in PlayBack and wrote about Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for iOS in Mobile Watch.

Don’t Starve had a fairly negative WeView Verdict, while Outlast is already receiving quite a strong response, most of which is quite favourable!

TSA reader, ashw92, blogged about his gaming grievances, specifically social stigmas and pricing, followed by games and gamers themselves, while the last blog this week came from Matt, who explained why he thought Respawn were going about building a fanbase in the right way.

Tidying stuff up in the usual way, there’s What We Played #163 from Greg and Episode 145 of the Podcast where Tef stepped in for the absent Peter and Lewis.

The Forums haven’t seen any new threads this week, but there’s still plenty of discussion going on within the usual threads such as:

This weekend is arguably the biggest one for British sporting events, with the Grand Prix, the Wimbledon finals and the Tour De France kicking off, there’s no points for guessing where I’ll be spending most of my time! If you’ve got anything better planned than slobbing it out in front of the TV, let me know in the comments, otherwise I’ll be back next week! Bye!
