If you didn’t already know, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World was a fantastic movie. So, I have decided to make sure you knew that before I get into the week that was. Go see it. Now!

Anyhow, outside of the movie theater, the week has been fun. But, we prepare for another week of features, editorials, reviews, and, most importantly, community blogs! Yes, they are back on the front page. Rejoice with me as I recap the week that was.

Morris Salazar, a newer community member who has started a blog here roughly 3 weeks ago has been continually pumping out content. Lately, he has shown us MMO games for Xbox 360, five ways to avoid the RROD, and a breakdown as to why Xbox 360 is the superior console.

Independently owned video game retailers are a rare gem these days. Unfortunately, we have lost another as gameguypeter provides us with a fantastic eulogy for Video Game Castle.

Michael Carusi shares his thoughts on Tim Shafer’s recently announced downloadable game: Costume Quest.

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger was easily my favorite fighter of last year. Well, the next in the series has arrived: BlazBlue: Continuum Shift.

Madden NFL 11 is fantastic, I promise you. Those of you that haven’t visited the franchise in years, I urge you to give it a shot this year. You will be pleasantly surprised.

The Summer of Arcade continues as Monday Night Combat rolls in and brings some unique multiplayer enjoyment. Don’t forget to play as a team though!

Product reviews are something we love to do as a site if the opportunity presents itself. Well, Shawn explains exactly why the CM4 Catalyst case for your PSPgo is worth the purchase.

Driver month is here and things have just gotten started with the first Driver retrospective.

Selfish gamers, you are ruining everything we love about multiplayer games in a generation that is driven by the multiplayer experiences. Stop it!

I love my iPhone. What I love most about it is the massive amount of enjoyment I can get out of it on the cheap. Here are some $1 gems that the wise Sean Carey recommends.

Are you a fan of the air combat genre? If so, be sure to share your thoughts as to whether or not the air combat genre has anything left to share.

This week I have three heroes…

First is John Carmack. The man never fails to make us geek out.

Next, Ken Levine. Seems like everything he touches makes my jaw drop. Can’t WAIT for Bioshock Infinite.

Last and certainly not least, our very own Alex Yue. He showed us the ropes in Alien Swarm and we thank him for that.¬†Despite our continued failures in the beginning, we learned from our mistakes and completed Alien Swarm in this week’s Gamer Limit Game Night.

Well there you have it, the week that was. Please be sure to stop by each day this coming week as we have a lot more to share. Below is just a snapshot of what is to come:

  • Driver 2 retrospective
  • iPhone Graduation Day
  • Stop It feature
  • We Need to Talk feature
  • Environmentalism in Games
  • Game Night – Monday Night Combat
  1. A friend of mine over at OW told me she though Scott Pilgrim vs. The World was a hilarious film. I can imagine, especially with the bladder capacity bar. Reminds me of the original Rollercoaster Tycoon and watching that bar just plunge when they entered a restroom. I’m still not certain why Destructoid went nuts over it, though.

    The previews at the end of the recaps are a nice feature. Kudos to whoever had that idea. “Environmentalism in Games” looks like an interesting one.

  2. Hey glad I could help out with Alien Swarm! Too bad I had to go to that party. Oh well, there’s always next week.

      It also could well end up being an illegal prcctiae in some parts of the world with the recent statement of the FTC saying that companies engaging in word-of-mouth marketing, in which people are compensated to promote products to their peers, must disclose those relationships’.

    Geoff, I understand your coecrnn but of course exemptions would be made for people who have already paid. The debate about principle here are actually very simple:1) do you think the cost of HE should be shared between general taxation and a specific payment by those who benefit?2) if you do, should this payment be in the form of a loan and repayment or a tax?My personal preference would have been that the answer to (1) should have remained no , and we should have stuck to paying for HE out of general taxation. But I’m realistic enough to accept we are past that. So we are forced to choose between a gradaute tax or a loan and repayment system. The latter is purely being pursued in order to force Universities to compete on price, which I personally oppose. Higher education is already competitive enough, on quality, without introducing financial competition too, which is bound to be regressive.I would still like to adjust the balance between the two this governments reckless and unnecessary 80% reduction in teaching grant to Universities has tilted the balance towards student contributions way to much. If, for example, the balance was struck somewhere in the middle between paying for HE teaching costs from general taxation and a graduate tax applied to everyone (except people in your position) then the graduate tax would only be about 1p on the basic tax rate.My real point with this idea and the petition was to allow people like myself who benefitted from a free University education in the past should pay a bit more back than straight taxation does. I am willing to do that, rather than see a new generation of working class kids get put off going to University altogether. As someone who left school at 16 and came from a relatively poor working class background, I know I would not have gone to University if it had meant accruing the sort of debt now being contemplated.
