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.

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.

Review: Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling (PS4)

Paper Mario but with bugs (not the technical kind).
Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling makes its inspiration obvious just from looking at a screenshot. The art style pays homage to the Paper Mario series and the rest of the game follows suite. The first two Paper Mario games were traditional paper turn based rpgs, and the series has shifted away from that formula since. Bug Fables sets out to create an experience similar to those early entries in the Paper Mario series.

Any fans of the classic Paper Mario games will feel at home playing Bug Fables. Besides the art style, the combat will feel familiar right away. Your party has three characters who will be with you for the entirety of the game. You take turns attacking with each character having their own unique strengths and weaknesses. Each character fares better against specific types of enemies. A unique mechanic this game offers is the ability to give your attack to another character. The penalty is that each subsequent attack is w…

Review: Moving Out (PS4)

Watching my children play together is one of the permanent joys of my life, but it's not a joy I experience as much as I use to. As they grew older they grew more apart. This is a normal thing so in those rare moments when they come together to play, laugh and argue I get to relive their younger years and they don't even know it.
Like most people my family has been in quarantine for the past weeks and 3 of my children are old enough to live away from home. What use to be family weekend dinners with a few video games mixed in became a text messages and phone calls. Week's went by without seeing them. I could tell our youngest was getting bored and whenever he heard us talking to one of his older siblings on the phone his ears would perk up and he would inevitably ask if they were coming over. We would have to say no and he would slump back down and continue doing whatever he was doing. As the quarantine orders have been lifted and we are finally able to venture out and my ki…
