Twitter Weekly Digest for 2009-05-24

Submitted by on Sunday, 24 May 2009No Comment

PS3 Attitude on TwitterWelcome back to our weekly Twitter Digest, where we recap everything we mumbled, moaned, blabbered or chatted about via our Twitter feed.

So what can you expect this week? As well as the usual list of great people to follow, our tweets were dominated by our Charity Auction, our Charity Event at E3 in Los Angeles and the gold iPod Touch competition from Ubisoft.

We’d like to thank everyone who has helped spread the word – why not follow some of them yourself!


  • [br] Hmm, to continue with a game I need to play more in order to review. Or play the game I really want to play. And … it’s the latter :) #
  • Just want to say thanks to people like @TheLostGamer @richard4481 and others who are helping spread the word – stars, the lot of you… #
  • Welcome to @M214173 – our 500th follower! Thanks for helping us hit a milestone… now, on to 1,000! #
  • If you’re at E3 09, have a drink with us and raise some money for charity too – you may win prizes! pls RT #
  • If you’re on N4G, we’d appreciate your approval – – thanks! #
  • @Ducer15 Yeah – saw that. And the NC20. Decided the NC10 was perfect and got it cheap since it is being replaced! :) in reply to Ducer15 #
  • @RockStar_AV8R [br] Be prepared. They’ve made a LOT of changes to what was in the book. And not for the better for the most part … in reply to RockStar_AV8R #
  • @djhsecondnature @cc_starr I trump you both by quite some distance. I would tell you by how much, but I only have 140 characters available in reply to djhsecondnature #
  • @djhsecondnature There’s a perfect example. Someone of older years would know what ‘trump’ means… ๐Ÿ˜‰ in reply to djhsecondnature #
  • @djhsecondnature Youngsters always say that. ๐Ÿ˜€ in reply to djhsecondnature #
  • @Bruciebabe Ask it “Where am I?”, “How are you?”, “What is the meaning of life?” and “How many roads must a man walk down?” :) in reply to Bruciebabe #
  • At E3 09? Want to have a drink with us and raise some money for charity too? Like winning prizes? pls RT #
  • @Ducer15 Getting between 6-8 hours. Set up a custom power setting that gives me what I need. Switching off wifi helps when ‘net not needed. in reply to Ducer15 #
  • @Ducer15 I’ve seen the site now! I can still get 6 with wifi on all the time – just play with the power settings and you’ll manage it… in reply to Ducer15 #
  • @Ducer15 Whatever we’re both getting, it is far ahead of my laptop which manages 45 mins! NC10 FTW! in reply to Ducer15 #

  • @Ducer15 The graphics are just fine. As one of our team said this morning, Gameplay > Graphics. We’ll explain everything in the review soon. in reply to Ducer15 #
  • @Ducer15 The ‘graphics talking point’ with inFAMOUS is complex. A lot of pros and cons that can’t be explained in 140 chars. in reply to Ducer15 #

  • @Ubisoft Man of Conviction. We rock at anagrams here at Attitude Towers… or A Twittered Oust if you prefer… ๐Ÿ˜‰ in reply to Ubisoft #

  • Anyway, show the BBC you know your stuff – vote for the best game ever at – part of their Big Gaming Weekend #
