Thanks everyone for a great season and join us in a few week for the next TPSNBA Update.

2012 Showies: TPSSer of the Year

A lot has happened this year. ThePlayStationShow.com went down, allegedly hosted phishing content and essentially fragmented the entire community into tiny pockets of what it once was. Through all of that, the fans still showed up. I mean, there are at least 3 people at TPSS live shows, and even less for BZTP. TpSUK still has a good following but they're British. Everything Burrito was created, I'm sorry, and the Boom keeps on keeping on (didn't really have anything to say; so cliche it is). Although our community has split and splintered, we are still a community. We are still like minded people that play games and enjoy (mostly) each other's company.

This is the time to celebrate those that take it to another level. Those that keep us together, either through twitter, chat, comments, contests, gaming or podcasting. This is the time to nominate the TPSSer of the Year. What community member should be recognized for everything they do? For caring a little too much, for  being in chat a little too often, for participating to the point where we question what their lives have come to.

Leave a comment here or use the hashtag #2012ShowiesTPSSer on twitter.

I would like to nominate Jon_Mclane. If it has something to do with TPSS he's there. Live shows, check. Gaming nights, check. Contests to win money because no one else enters, check. His efforts in the TPSNFL alone are enough to give him a Showie. Those power rankings were a trolls dream, one that he made a reality. Just watch the videos below and you will be convinced that the brown panterdown2 deserves a Showie Award.





2012 Showies: PSP Game of the Year

So what the PSP is dead. So what everyone calls it a failure even though it outsold the PS3 and the 360. So what there were only like 5 games released for it this year, it deserves some Showie love. Nominate the PSP game of the year. Comment here or use the twitter hashtag #2012ShowiesPSP.

I nominate . . . NBA 2K13 because there was a moment there that I almost bought it. It's a terrible version of basketball but the best PSP game released in 2012.

I mean watch the video below and look at how much fun this looks.


2012 Showies: Most Anticipated Game of Next Year

This is a very unique Showie. It's all about a game that we haven't played but really want to. Nominate the most anticipated game of 2013. Comment here or use the twitter hashtag #2012ShowiesAnticipated.

I will nominate Half-Life 3. It probably doesn't exist and will never get made, but if Half-Life 2 can win game of the decade then HL3 can be the most anticipated game of 2013.


2012 Showies: Nominate your Overrated Game of the Year

This has been a banner year for gaming. Some of the best games that have ever been made were released in 2012. This has also been a banner year for overrated games. Nominate your most overrated game of 2012. Leave a comment or use the hashtag #2012ShowiesOverratedGame.

I will start the nomination with Battlefield 3 Premium Edition. What once was a great game was ruined by the additions of what EA and DICE liked to call "premium" content. This game was so good until DICE made it so bad.


December 11, 2012

2012 Showies: Nominate your DLC of the Year

What DLC was the best released this year? If you are like me then you have purchased much more DLC than you have played. Comment here or use the hashtag #2012ShowiesDLC.

I nominate the NBA All-Star game DLC pre-order bonus. It's the best DLC that was in the past games but is now a pre-order DLC bonus. Thanks 2K!

Season 2: TPSNFL Update Week 14 (Playoffs Week 1)


Thanks for joining the TPSNFL Update for this playoff week 1 review. Sad news because the Ruff Ryderz lost in one of the unluckiest matchups this league has ever seen. Mclane wins only because he had to play the weakest team and Bourne how to dominate in the losers playoffs.

All that and a bunch of smack talk. Thanks for downloading and listening, enjoy!

2012 Showies: Nominate your Moment of the Year

What was the best moment of 2012? This could be something that happened in the community, to yourself or in a game. Basically anything memorable in 2012. Leave a comment here or use the twitter hashtag #2012ShowiesMoment.

I will nominate the best moment ever. It was the moment the TPSN Ruff Ryderz made the BZTP team rage quit in BF3. It was the war to end all wars and when the dust settled the TPSN Ruff Ryderz celebrated like champions. The video below is proof of the greatest celebration the internet has ever seen.

2012 Showies: Nominate the Trophy Whore of the Year

I see a lot of people tweeting about the trophies they get. I figured it's time to acknowledge those with a Showie Award. Nominate the biggest, baddest trophy whore you know. Leave a comment here or use the hashtag #2012ShowiesTrophyWhore on twitter.

I will start the nominations with the biggest trophy whore in the entire UK, ZonalRipper. One of the masterminds behind TpSUK, this British trophy whore does what ever it takes to get that Platinum. He's played some of the worst games ever made.

2012 Showies: Nominate your Game of the Year

If the Showies are known for one thing it's bucking the trend when it comes to game of the year. Sure the VGA's can try to ruin GOTY awards by giving it to The Walking Dead, but The Showies did that long ago. How could you forget the PSP Hamster game from the first annual showies? It was so shocking that AustinD left the show right after the announcement.

This year should be no different. Nominate the game that you think needs to be The Showies GOTY. Leave a comment below or use the hashtag #2012ShowiesGOTY. I can't put into words what my GOTY is, so I will just link to a video like most of my other posts.

2012 Showies: Most Underrated Game

What is the one game that should have gotten all of the love but just didn't? It either was released at a bad time, the wrong system, or just had bad marketing. Nominate your most underrated game of 2012. Tell us what game you wish everyone would have played.

Leave a comment or use the hashtag #2012ShowiesUnderrated on twitter.

I will start it off with the best Diablo game I have ever played, Torchlight 2. We have gotten to the point where people should start calling Diablo 3 a Torchlight 2 clone. They fixed everything, made the entire game more efficient, more varied, added multiplayer and tons more fun. TL2 is probably the best game I have played all year and it wouldn't surprise me if it was in the running for The Showies GOTY.

2012 Showies: Peripheral of the Year

Nominate your peripheral of the year. This could be those new wireless headphones that hump your ears while you play games or that weird PlayStation Move wheel controller thingy. It can be anything. Just make sure to add your comment to nominate or hashtag #2012ShowiesPeripheral.

I will start off by nominating the PlayStation Move controllers. They have given me rounds of fun on Tiger Woods 12. There hasn't been a peripheral that has been released that hasn't done more of the immersion in gaming than the PlayStation Move controllers. It's almost like I'm really golfing.

I mean look at how much fun these people are having.


2012 Showies: Twitter of the Year

Thanks to @derrickgott007 for reminding me to do the Twitter of the Year category for the 2012 Showies. You can comment or nominate via twitter by using the hashtag #2012ShowiesTwitteroftheYear.

This category is really a no-brainer to me. There is only one twitter account on the entire internet that deserves to be followed and that is @BSmith3258. Just look at some of the gems below and you will realize why.













2012 Showes: Nominate your PSVita GOTY

Nominate your PSVita GOTY. This can be any PSVita game, PSN or cartridge. Either leave a comment on this post or use the hashtag #2012ShowiesVitaGOTY on twitter. This is a really hard one for me. There are so many great games for the Vita. This is truly the year of the portable.

There was one game that stood out the best among a ton of amazing games and that was Ragnarok Odyssey. Now although I have only played the demo, that 15 mins convinced me that this is the best game released on the Vita this year. Think Phantasy Star Portable but beautiful and improved. This is the one must play game on the Vita and dare I say it, a system seller.

 

2012 Showies: TPSNFL Trade of the Year

Thanks to JT on twitter for this next category. Nominate your favorite TPSNFL trade of the year. Was it when ediddy ripped off franchise254 and got Megatron for free? Or was it when ediddy999 trade raped Canada not once, but twice.

Post a comment below or use the hashtag #2012ShowiesTradeRape.

I have so many great trades that I am nominating the two below. They will probably go down as the greatest trades this league has ever seen*.



*The League does recognize that Bourne34 traded tomaterr Jordy Nelson and the championship last season.

Welcome to another episode of ThePlayStationShow.com Podcast. We are finally back with a full crew. Redfield brings Mr. Burgundy who she is not banging, allegedly. BSmith sounds like a horse while Franchise is racing motorcycles home.

2012 Showies: Most Overrated TPSSer



Thanks to Jon_Mclane our next category will be for the most overrated TPSSer of the year. Leave a comment here or tweet the hashtag #2012ShowiesOverrated.
This can be any community member that is apart of any community. TPSNFL, Boom, BZTP, TpSUK, TPSS or Everything Burrito.
I nominate Tomaterr because if anyone deserves a Showie it's Tomaterr.

2012 Showies: mini of the Year


Nominate your PlayStation mini of the year. This is one of the favorite categories of The Showies. Leave a comment here or tweet the hashtag #2012Showiesmini.
I don't play a lot of minis but when I do I play Wizorbs. It's by far the best and most well-rounded mini I have ever played. Who doesn't want an RPG block breaking game? Dungeon crawling while I break blocks, use potions and unlock chests. Yes, it's that good.

2012 Showies: Best Game You Haven't Played


Nominate the best game that you have not played yet. It's that game that you want to play so bad, but something always prevents you. It can be any video game out there. Just leave a comment here or use the hashtag #2012ShowiesNotPlayed on twitter.
I will start it off with the most spammed game this community has ever seen on twitter, Clash of Clans. All spongebobbies every tweets about is invading and getting invaded but us on android can't join in the fun. Either he loves this game or hates us and does it to make us feel bad.

Season 2: TPSNFL Update Week 12



Jon_Mclane's TPSNFL Power Rankings - Week 12

1.(2) Team Franchise
Team Franchise puts up their third 100 point performance in the last 4 weeks, the one week not doing it Marshawn Lynch was on a bye and they came up 2 points short of 100. 
2.(1) Team Bowser
A Nail Bitter win for PSAddiction this week as Tom Brady and the 49ers D/ST put the team on their back. In the playoffs they will look to prove that RBs don't matter. 
3.(3) Straight Trash Homie
Straight Trash Homie is suddenly the deepest team in the league, with great depth comes over thinking. Will the Homies choke with all this new found depth? 
4.(6) I Am Not A Racist
A Racist is the leading scorer of the week with their 3rd straight win and their league leading 5th 100 point performance of the season. They're quietly a favorite to win it all. 
5.(7) TPSS Bros 
6.(4) TPSNFL Bums
The Bums find a way to win ugly again. They have 1 legit WR and 1 legit RB. Since his 31 point performance week 4Brian Hartline has scored 29 total points in 8 weeks. If Maurice Jones-Drew doesn't return soon the Bums are in dangers of getting knocked out early in the playoffs. 
7.(5) Mexico Brownies 
The Brownies have picked a bad time to be hit by injuries with their top 4 WRs all hurt. Combined with having the toughest schedule in league history and having 100 points scored against them for a record 6th time things are looking bad for the Brownies. There's been 31 100 point performances this season, 10 have either been by the Brownies or against the Brownies. In a 14 team league the Brownies are involved in 1/3 of all 100 points performances. To compare, the other 3 teams fighting for the last playoff spots (Ruff Ryderz, Bro's, and Tomaterrs) combined for 9 100 points perfomances for or against. 
8.(8) TPSN Ruff Ryderz 
Mark Ingram,Jonathan Dwyer, and Antonio Gates what do all these players have in common? You probably dropped them, and they're all starting for the Ruff Ryderz. Jonathan Dwyer? Really? The leading running back in the 4 headed Pittsburgh running game known as the Fumble Factory. The Ruff Ryderz are a landfill of bad football players, and this is the starting lineup, I'm afraid to even look at the bench.
9.(9) MISMANAGED TOMATERRS
The TOMATERRS somehow find a way to lose yet again. Don't get me wrong, they're a very bad team but they've been in situations to fraud there way into a good record but just haven't capitalized. 
10.(12) aesculus glabra
Glabra pulls off their biggest win of the season this week over the Lazy Kings to avoid being the worst team in the league. 
11.(10) Team Chuck Norris
Texans D/ST picked a bad time to start sucking, Chuck Norris' biggest strength early in the season is now their biggest weakness. Still got a punchers chance of making the playoffs. 
12.(11) Team CANADA
Team CANADA is finally eliminated so I don't have to write anything about them. Another All-American playoff in the TPSNFL, the way it should be. USA! USA! USA! 
13.(14) Team WinRawr 
14.(13) CONCORD Lazy Kings
One of the deepest free agency pools, you got the #1 waiver pick and you come away with. Jake LockerLance Ball, and Michael Jenkins. In Defense of Pantera he didn't actually put in a waiver claim for these terrible players, he instead made no waiver claims and picked up the trash leftover after everyone took all the good players.
Pick'em Games:
Detroit Lions(4-7)-4.5
Oakland Raiders(3-8)-0.5
Dallas Cowboys(5-6)-9.5

2012 Showies: Best PlayStation Plus Month



PlayStation Plus could be the best use of your money ever. So what better way to celebrate Plus then to nominate the best month that was released in 2012. Was in January, February, March, April, May? It might have been June , July or August. Don't forget about September, October, November or December. Decisions, decisions, decisions.
Make sure to comment or use the #2012ShowiesPlus on twitter to nominate the best month of PlayStation Plus.
This is one is an easy one. It's this month. The first month that Vita got free games. What is better than free Vita games.

Season 2: TPSNFL Update Week 11



Dez Bryant sucks and will probably slap his mom when he gets home.
Week 12 Pick'em Games:

Detroit Lions(4-6)+3.5


Dallas Cowboys(5-5)-3.5

2012 Showies: Nominate Your Shooter of the Year


One of the most contested categories for the 2012 Showies is, the Shooter of the Year. Who will it be? COD Vita, Blops 2, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Borderlands 2, Killzone HD Trilogy?
There are so many bad shooters to choose from, thank goodness there is one that stands above the rest.
To nominate your shooter of the year comment or use the #2012ShowiesShooter on twitter.
I nominate the only shooter released this year that dared to change the game, the shooter that went to the edge, the shooter that made no compromises. Yes, you are correct, that game is Spec Ops: The Line.
It's goes without saying that Spec Ops completely redefined the shooter genre. The only way to properly describe it is to give the the 2012 Showies Shooter of the Year Award. Do the right thing and nominate it again.

November 18, 2012

2012 Showies: Nominate Your PSN Game of the Year


It's time to nominate the best PSN Game of 2012. Just make sure that  it's a PSN only game. This can either be on the PSP, PSVita or PS3 as long as it released of the PSN first. (Games like Journey count as a PSN release even though it came out on disc later. Also this doesn't have to be exclusive either).
You can nominate a game by leaving a comment on this post or by using the hashtag #2012ShowiesPSNGOTY.
I will start the nominations off with the absolute best PSN game that was released in 2012 and that would be Journey. Absolutely gorgeous  the best co-op on the PlayStation and one of the most unique experiences in gaming ever. If you haven't played Journey you are doing gaming wrong.

Panteradown2 Plays - Need For Speed: Most Wanted

This isn't only the best way to play Need for Speed: Most Wanted, it's the only way you should play it. Don't be a sheep and play the dumbed down and overpriced version. Play the fun, cheap and amazing version.

2012 Showies: Nominate Your PS3 Exclusive of the Year


It's time to get the nominations going for the 2012 Showies. Check back here everyday for a new post.
There are two ways to nominate a game. You can either nominate a game by leaving a comment on this post for your PS3 exclusive of the year or use a hashtag on twitter #2012ShowiesPS3Exclusive.
This needs to be disc based games only. PSN exclusive will have it's own category.
It's just that simple so get to nominating!
I will start the nominations off with MLB12: The Show. By far the best in terms of quality, replayability, value, dev dedication, and fun. I mean just look at the video below and tell me that is not the best game released for the PS3 this year.

Season 2: TPSNFL Update Week 10
