Twitter Weekly Digest for 2009-04-05

Submitted by on Sunday, 5 April 2009One Comment

PS3 Attitude on TwitterOnce again, it’s that time of the week where we take a look at the twitter readouts and share the siesmic activity on the feed.

More Killzone clan details, visitor numbers and April Fool industry jokes are all present and correct. The ‘big’ announcement this week was for the PS2 price drop. We tweeted about it. A bit.

In other stories, we suspect some of the team are getting a bit too much Killzone, with news of nightmares and trophy hunting.Speaking of trophies, it seems as though certain trophies are massively under-rewarding. A bronze trophy after hours of work? Hmmm…

  • Finally got the Manhunt trophy in GTA IV. That’s far too much effort for a mere Bronze. No? #
  • @tregregins I’m pretty much sure I won’t do the pigeons but best of luck! πŸ˜‰ in reply to tregregins #
  • Kinda gutted that Sony vetoed Insomniac’s first choice for the name of the new Ratchet & Clank. ‘Clock Blocker’ is such an awesome title! πŸ˜€ #
  • Just received SOCOM: Confrontation and Buzz: Brain of the UK review copies. Look out for the reviews on site soon… #
  • By the way, well done to Force et Honneur – they won our #KZ2 PS3A 4on4by4 tournament. We came second. [F.H] taught us a few lessons… πŸ˜‰ #
  • @cc_starr where(crappybrowser = getIE()); ignore(); Divs all the way. in reply to cc_starr #
  • Nothing is official until it’s official. Posting a news stating: “There are officially rumours of a PS3 price cut” is an oxymoron. #
  • Nothing is official until it’s official. Posting news stating: “There are officially rumours of a PS3 price cut” is an oxymoron. #
  • @thesixthaxis True enough. But Ajax is also good at getting rid of other viruses, germs and general scum – in reply to thesixthaxis #
  • @cc_starr Maybe you’re just not old enough to remember… πŸ˜‰ in reply to cc_starr #
  • @cc_starr That too. Though an oxymoron is conjoining contradictory terms. “Deafening silence”, “definitely maybe”, “official rumour” πŸ˜‰ in reply to cc_starr #
  • Is it too much to ask for that Just Add Water’s Project V for the PS3 is about alien lizard scum and earth’s dogged resistance? #
  • Random fact: year-to-date visitors are up 205% over the same period last year. Thanks to all our readers! :) #
  • Much love for David Jaffe. While we’re staying away from price cut rumours, he’s stating that BC is also returning. Free back rubs too! :) #
  • For those looking for the link where David Jaffe “sticks it to the man” regarding BC – #
  • You’ll find @djaffe in our Top 50 Video Game Twitter Feeds too, so go follow him! – #
  • Does David Jaffe have a Twitterganger? Has the wool been surreptitiously pulled over our eyes? Does this mean no BC for Tuesday? Ah, drat! #
  • @BenKuchera Happens to the best of us Ben. Take a deep breath. Have a drink. Punch an attack dog in the face. πŸ˜‰ in reply to BenKuchera #
  • @gehrig38 Been using Xobni for a long time – we can attest to the brilliance of said plugin… everyone should use it with Outlook… in reply to gehrig38 #
  • #u2ce As long as it isn’t like this one – – value for money is king. A resin Drake would be cool. With litmus slacks! #
  • #u2ce Can we add, if your greenlight video for U:2 is as good as the original, it would be good to see that on a ‘making of’ DVD too! #
  • Preparing myself for Sony’s announcement tomorrow with “Is that it?” being the most likely response. #
  • Publicly apologising to my girlfriend for last night’s sleep-walking. Screaming “THE HELGHAST ARE COMING!” in the bedroom helps no-one. #
  • Just received a cheque from Google which we’ll add to our Charity Fund. We’re sending over this quarter’s money to GamesAid tomorrow. :) #
  • @PSM3_Magazine Free donuts with every PS game purchased from now on. Mmm …. donuts. in reply to PSM3_Magazine #
  • @thebadrash If you don’t follow us, your entry is invalid – let us know when you’re following, and we’ll confirm your entry… in reply to thebadrash #
  • FYI, I haven’t read a newspaper in about 10 years… #newssource #
  • @cc_starr Apparently they do. I don’t read newspapers for other reasons anyhow… my friends tell me what is important in the world… in reply to cc_starr #
  • Is it possible to play and review two new games, rank up in Killzone 2 while finishing off GTA IV all at the same time? We’ll find out. #
  • @cc_starr Try holding down ALT and then typing 35. You might need to also hold down a “fn” key on a laptop to activate the number pad. in reply to cc_starr #
  • RT @Ubisoft: Name your top 3 Ubisoft games and let’s compare! #
  • @Ubisoft – we can’t do just three – PoP:Sands of Time; XIII; FarCry 2; Beyond Good and Evil; Splinter Cell – five of your best, surely… #
  • @Ubisoft – oh, and there is currently a fight to the death at PS3 Attitude Towers to see who wins – “Five games enter. Three games leave.” #
  • @Ubisoft The alternative view is 10 Great Games, 10 Megahits Vol 1 and 10 Megahits Vol 2 on the Amiga. πŸ˜‰ #
  • Why, by the way, is BBC HD so rubbish. Half the time it is just ‘BBC HD Preview’ – why not do parallel programming a la Channel 4 HD? #
  • @cc_starr Indeed. It is the F1 coverage that irked me the most lately. Surely that should have been in HD. It is crying out for it! :( in reply to cc_starr #
  • We haven’t done this in a while (so don’t hurt us) but remember our Spring Competition is still open for entry – #
  • @NickColley We have a sneaky feeling that that’s it. PS2 price drop. Kinda nice for the few people without a PS2 who were on the fence :) in reply to NickColley #
  • @r3yguti3rr3z We are jealous. ‘Nuff said… in reply to r3yguti3rr3z #
  • It’s bittersweet when you finally get a response back regarding an interview with: “Definitely. But not now. We’re knee-deep in code.” :) #
  • @felixthinks It’s a dev that has yet to give an interview about their upcoming game so forgive me if I stay shtum. But yes, next month :) in reply to felixthinks #
  • @Pw00d If you don’t follow us, your entry to the competition is invalid. Let us know when you’re following and we’ll confirm… thanks! in reply to Pw00d #
  • If you find any PS3-related April Fools today, send us a link via Twitter – we need a laugh (or a cry/moan/wince)… πŸ˜‰ #
  • And no, the PS2 price drop isn’t an April Fool, so don’t send that! #
  • @cc_starr Did you see the abuse the FF VII prankster got in his website comments? in reply to cc_starr #
  • @OPM_UK Let me guess, people writing using the passive voice and … hmmm … I’ll go with opaque verbosity. πŸ˜‰ in reply to OPM_UK #
  • Pretty sure no one caught the Japanese translation hiccup on our tri-Ace RPG article (thanks TP by the way!). Will be more careful in future #
  • Shenmue 3 announced! On the first of April! Yeah … exactly … God I wish this day would just end. #
  • Thx for the April Fools – we put the PS3-related ones together for you… feel free to add more to the comments – #
  • @DylanJobe Thanks Dylan. Real life proves to be much funnier than any April Fools we saw today! in reply to DylanJobe #
  • @cc_starr Our roundup has been duly updated sir… and tell nofi that his PShop skills are unmatched by humans… in reply to cc_starr #
  • Oh – if you’re an N4G member, please go visit our story. Heck, you can approve it too if you have the authority! #
  • @djhsecondnature Why thank you, kind sir! in reply to djhsecondnature #
  • RT Another AFJ!! – Sneak Preview: @MrTweet now helps you find YOUR prefect date based on analyzing your tweetstream! #
  • @Ubisoft What!? Not the Amiga best games compilations!? 30 awesome titles in just three boxes?!? We feel robbed… in reply to Ubisoft #
  • Recommended @thesixthaxis to @MrTweet ‘they cover PS3 news almost as well as we do! πŸ˜‰ And they once bought us a dr…’ #
  • Recommended @jeffrubenstein to @MrTweet ‘he’s one of the best community managers out there. And he’s tall. Always i…’ #
  • Our Twitteristics: Tweet 3x as much as the Twitter founders (8.4/day), Engaging(39%), Good Connector(48%)! #
  • @Veronica Don’t worry Veronica – we’re here to help you avoid getting your metaphorical leg blown off – in reply to Veronica #
  • Looks like our dreams of “V: The Game” have been dashed. A new PS3 “retro shooter” though? Hmm … interesting … #
  • @Doom_CMYK Jennifer Garner > Jessica Alba (And no this is not a thinly veiled Halo is better than KZ tweet) :) in reply to Doom_CMYK #
  • @Doom_CMYK The PS3 Attitude Twitter Team is made up of more than one person. This one would take Alba over Garner any time! πŸ˜‰ in reply to Doom_CMYK #
  • Trine’s initial release date: Q2. New release states “summer” but then goes on to state “Q2/Q3”. Amazingly, all these are the same thing! :) #
  • @BenKuchera @nickchester @ncroal Best question, “how can we better spend nine hours with Charlize Theron and Angelina Jolie?” in reply to BenKuchera #
  • @dmosbon Bag. You bring a tea leaf into this place and it would spark a riot. Considering DolphGB’s status usually reflects his tea-loveΓ’β€žΒ’… in reply to dmosbon #
  • @aalaap I’m just pleased they chose that title. At one point it was called The 4ast And The 4urious! #
  • iPod just died (battery). Twitterland – recommend some awesome new artists to me who are on LastFM. #
  • @Doom_CMYK IW dropped the COD moniker so you can save yourself some keystrokes from now on. :) in reply to Doom_CMYK #
  • @Doom_CMYK COD will continue with Treyarch (and maybe another studio) but IW and Activision are now treating Modern Warfare as a new baby. in reply to Doom_CMYK #
  • @byronicman We’ve seen a few ‘other’ movies start like that too… in reply to byronicman #
  • @aalaap Maybe all those waves are the reason why you swear in all your tweets πŸ˜› WIFI CAUSES TOURETTES! Never change man, never change … in reply to aalaap #
  • @aalaap Think of the f%@kin’ children! πŸ˜€ in reply to aalaap #
  • @Dewiel Whatever you decide – just make sure that it’s together, alone, and with the Blackberry turned OFF. in reply to Dewiel #
  • @cc_starr I pushed it over the line. Great article. in reply to cc_starr #
  • Guess this Games Database isn’t going to write itself. #
  • @djhsecondnature <insert game title><insert publisher><insert developer><insert source><insert release date><insert random text> Might work! in reply to djhsecondnature #
  • @NickColley The PS3 Attitude Games Database. I’m currently in the process of updating it. in reply to NickColley #
  • @byronicman It makes you a legend. You should take your pants off. Makes yourself at home. in reply to byronicman #
  • Thanks to the GAME Rewards Card, just bought SFIV Special Edition for £2.37! Nice… :) #
  • @guycocker Did they stick you in a bright orange jump-suit with the acronym P.O.W. (Prisoner of Wife) on your back? Paintball Irish style! in reply to guycocker #
  • PC crashed. Just lost some “epic” writing. It’s a sign. It means stop writing, have dinner, go to the cinema with your girlfriend. #
