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: 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.

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.
