Community Round-Up: 20/09/14

I haven’t had much of a chance to catch up with TSA due to having started my new job, but it appears to have been quite the week! So, without much further ado, let’s find out what I missed and begin this week’s Community Round-Up!

CRU Banner - meets red dead

For the TSA Meets this week, you can expect GT6 on Monday, Red Dead probably occurring at some point, and then Battlefield on Friday.

As always, you can add your own Meet to the list, provided you have more than 250 TSA Points.

It was another strong week for the Reviews, so let’s dive straight in with Fantasy Life (3DS), which earned itself a 9/10 from Dan who described it as “an immersive, enjoyable experience with a lot of content to play with”. Two games earned themselves an 8/10 this week, namely Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair and Hyrule Warriors from Jim and Blair respectively.

Dropping down to 7/10, Aran pointed out the striking art style and intriguing  puzzles in Murasaki Baby, while descending another point gives us Run Like Hell!, which received a 6/10 from Greg. Also earning a 6/10 was Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution, which Sam sadly described as “rushed”.

Jim didn’t give a score to Fairy Fencer F, however he still said the game had “a lot to offer for both fans of the genre as well as newcomers” as it is “straightforward and easily accessible”.

Turning our attention to the Previews, Watch Dogs’ Bad Blood DLC sounds really good, while Not A Hero looks like it’s progressing very nicely. Stefan also had a look at Skylanders: Trap Team and how the already very successful franchise is entering the tablet market, while he thinks Toy Soldiers: War Chest could fulfill the appetites of fans of the Tower Defence genre.

Aran said farewell to his Matter of Perspective series, with a look back over his favourite articles, while in the Chronicle, Stefan looked over GTA V’s new-gen release date, Microsoft’s Mojang acquisition and August’s NPD results in Hot Topics.

Fez divided the Community in its Verdict, while Trials Fusion already appears to be a marmite game too with either a hate-it-or-love-it response.

And to round off the articles as we always do, there’s What We Played #174 from Greg and Episode 154 of the Podcast.

Unfortunately a server hiccup has effectively knocked he forums out of action, so there’s nothing in this section this week.


EGX London is taking place this coming week, and I’m extremely envious of all the people that will get to play some of the upcoming games that I’m really looking forward to. Nevertheless, I’ll be here in seven days time to bring you everything, as I’m sure TSA will be buzzing with content from the Expo. So until then, see-ya!

  1. I like reading all the stuff and reviews on TSA. But, I was wondering why Destiny wasn’t reviewed, or did I miss that..? Of course, everybody got the game already anyways, except for me, but still, given the so so ratings it generally got, I’d really be interested what TSA staff thought of the final release version. No pressure, though, I’m sure you got enough to do to keep us entertained… ;o)

    • Our ultimate goal is to play the Raid before we put a score to it, which we should be getting to do this weekend for a review early next week.

      • Thanks. I actually appreciate you taking your time instead of rushing out half-baked reviews like other sites do. It shows in the quality of the reviews on here, and that’s what keeps me coming back. :o)

      • Good luck with the raid, i’ve heard that they can take a long time to complete :)

  2. Cheers for the GT6 Meet mention, new free cars in the latest update so join in with the racing!

  3. So I take it that the forums are still on holiday at the moment?
