Community Round-Up: 07/02/15

Last night marked the opener of this year’s Six Nations Championship, which I was at, and hence can’t put the result here. England’s injury list certainly put them at a disadvantage, and coupled with Wales being at home, I guess I can be fairly confident in saying it wasn’t a great night for the visitors (fingers crossed I’ve been proved wrong though!). The other matches today should be great games too, albeit fairly one sided I’m going to predict.

Anyway, let’s take a look back at the last seven days here on TSA in this week’s Community Round-Up!

This week on the meets, there will probably be the usual GT6 on Monday and Battlefield on Friday.

If you’d rather play something else, you can add your own Meet to the list, provided you have more than 250 TSA Points.

It was a quiet week for both the reviews and previews, but let’s begin with Tef’s impressions of the Battlefield Hardline Beta as that launched this week, and which I’ve dabbled in a bit this week, although I’m not quiet sure it’s for me just yet. He also had a look at Blitzkrieg 3 and how developers Nival are taking the WW2 RTS genre back to basics with demanding single player campaigns.

Looking at the reviews for the week, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D was the high scorer with an impressive 9/10 from Blair. Dropping just a single point to 8/10 was the first episode of Life is Strange, which Dom called ” the beginnings of a worthy and memorable entry in the adventure game genre”. Finally, Jim awarded Dying Light a 7/10, saying that it falls just short of greatness but is at its best when played with friends.

For the latest Mobile Watch, Jim looked at On The Run, the storyboard style puzzler, while you can still get your WeView comments in for PES 2015. Compared to last week’s FIFA 15, PES seems to be off to the better start, but let’s wait for the verdict next week as things can easily change.

Meanwhile, Aran blogged about the digital future of games and why he’s not sold on the concept, mainly due to Sony’s activation policy. Stefan then caught up with Richard Ogden, the man behind PS4 and PS Vita game Minutes, to talk about the game’s US release and what he’s aiming for with the game’s upcoming patch.

Time now for the Community articles, and last weekend’s Chronicle focused upon our friends across the pond, while we want you to tell us what you want to see in the Great TSA Poll.

Peter said farewell to the Podcast in Episode 167, while What We Played #189 shows you what the gang have been playing this week.

There’s nothing much new in the Forums, so let’s have a look at our old faithfuls:

  • Crazy Del shares his thoughts about Resident Evil HD in what are you playing
  • Meanwhile the Driveclub thread has been gripped by a recent fascination of rainbows!

There’s a fair chance a lot of you have plans other than watching rugby this weekend, so let me know what they are and I’ll be back this time next week – see ya!
