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.

Review: Just Die Already (PS4)

Just Die Already is a game where you choose an old person to play as and cause mayhem around a sandbox area. The best way to describe it is, goat simulator but replace the goat with a boomer. That sentence will be the best rundown I can give for those who have played goat simulator. Otherwise read on to get an idea whether or not this game is for you.    Once you select one of four old people to play as. Your character is free to roam an open area with loose goals and objectives. There are puzzles and items you can interact with to cause crazy stuff to happen, and unlock new areas and objectives. Everything feels optional past the 5 minute point. Once you’re dumped into the world, you’re on your own. The exploration is one of the strengths of the game. It feels refreshing to have no tutorials or a large arrow pointing you to your next objective.  Another strength of the game is in its humor. This can also be a weakness depending on your brand of humor. Slapstick comedy is the central t

Review: King of Seas (PS4)

King of Seas is an open world adventure RPG where you play as a disgraced captain of a royal lineage who is exiled from their kingdom and takes on the pirate life. The game shares more in common with the classic Sid Meier Pirates series than the recently popular Sea of Thieves in the pirate genre. But can we expect this title to live on as Sid Meier’s classic has 20 years from now? Probably not, I gave you the general plot in the opening paragraph and that all happens within a matter of minutes. From there the storyline takes a backseat to the gameplay. You have a choice to do mainline missions and progress the story or do side missions and progress your level and ship. Mainline quests will reward you with a cutscene but that’s the only difference between the two types of missions. They are largely uninteresting and share the same framework, using about 4 or 5 mission types to make up the infinite amount of randomly generated quests you can take on. It’s a recipe for repetition, a

We're Back: The Return of The PlayStation Show Podcast (April Fools)

As many of you have noticed there has been a lot of activity here at ThePlayStationShow.com . We have a brand new logo, a refresh on the website and new content showing up about once a week. All of this has been happening with one thought in mind, bringing back The PlayStation Show Podcast. In 2008 when we started the podcast we had no idea that it would run for 100 plus episodes.We basically did 3 straight years of weekly episodes for your listening pleasure. That kind of consistency can be hard to maintain. At the end, as we stepped away from TPSS, the Rogue Gamer was born and had a nice run but it wasn't The PlayStation Show. Now years later we're ready to come back. It is my pleasure to announce The PlayStation Show Podcast will be returning on a weekly basis starting NOW!!!
