Posted under news, thank you, Playthrough, Last Guardian, PYWS, winner, submissions, focus, PS3

We interrupt your regularly scheduled program to bring you this month's edition of RF Generation's Site News!  In this issue, we announce our first truly modern September community playthrough game, crown the winner of our annual Pain Yourself With Submissions contest, and of course, thank those members who sent in submissions to our site and registered approvals during the month of July. We are changing our submission "focus" again this month, so stay tuned to the end of our broadcast to find out which system it is.  Thanks for tuning in!     

REMEMBER: If you have any news about upcoming events or topics that you think the site needs to hear about, please PM singlebanana and put "RFG Site News" in the subject line.  Who knows, maybe your news will make our front page!


If you are a loyal listener of the RFG Playcast, you already know that singlebanana (Rich) and GrayGhost81 (Shawn) drooled over and repeatedly (more like "overly") discussed owning a PS4 for over the course of a year. However, in the last few months, both of them have acquired this highly coveted system and now they are itching to get started on a new chapter of Community Playthroughs with their RF Generation brethren.  So this September, the Community Playthrough co-hosts not only fire up their highly anticipated consoles, but also start with a PS4 title that was also highly anticipated for several years.  In the past, the Community Playthrough has tackled the great Fumito Ueda titles, Shadow of the Colossus and Ico, so it should be no surprise that this September, we have chosen to set our sites on the creator's most recent release, The Last Guardian

Originally announced at the 2009 electronic Entertainment Expo for release in 2011 for the Playstation 3, The Last Guardian would not be released until December of 2016 on the Playstation 4.  Many fans of the earlier Team Ico titles became irritated and downtrodden as year after year passed with constant delays, broken promises, and even speculations that the game would never be released.  Last year, fans got their wish, and it's fair to say that the reviews have been mixed.  So please, join us in September for The Last Guardian as we not only play this highly-anticipated title, but also flesh out our own impressions of this game as a community.

We hope that you are as excited about this pick as we are, so be sure to grab yourself a copy today! Also, please join in to discuss the game by signing up on our The Last Guardian discussion thread located HERE.



With the end of July, also comes the end of our annual PAIN YOURSELF WITH SUBMISSIONS CONTEST.  We had quite the nail biter up until the final day this year, but one member did manage to come out on top.  Before I announce the winner, I want to thank each and every one of you, who not only contributed submissions, but also participated in our contest this year. Our annual PYWS contest really boosts the quality of information on our site, so to be sickenly cliché I'll just say, "Every one of us ends up being a winner!"

So, without further adieu, the winner of this year's Pain Yourself With Submissions contest winner is.................................................Bear78!!!!  I will be contacting you in the next few days good sir, so that you can claim you prizes.

I want to clarify the results above in that even though Schlibby, put forth a valiant effort this year and by all counts is in first place, he is a staff member and by the rules of this contest, his total is halved.  This rule was implemented because many staff members are also able to approve their submissions, which results in double credit for each addition.  Again, thanks to all who participated and we will see you back for the contest next year.



In July, site members contributed a total of 4,630 submissions to our database.  That's almost triple last compared to last months results!  Of these additions, 3,799 were game submissions and 831 were hardware items. Of this total, 2,393 contributions were new images and 1,966 of these images were game submissions. A big thanks to all who submitted items to our database and to those who reviewed them all for the month of July! We appreciate your efforts in making our database and community a great tool for our users.

Our top submitters (those with a minimum of 50) for July were:

ApolloBoy                           908
Schlibby                              698
ericeskapade                      560
Bear78                                532
Fleabitten                           454
Kam1Kaz3 NL77                 339
toze3                                   227
theemoofrogF                     190
sharp                                   125
kaysow                                112

Thanks for another great month!

Holy cow!  I didn't think I'd actually win this thing!  Cheesy 

I think I've only submitted like 3 things for August so far... Needed a little break Tongue
@Bear78:  Congrats good sir!
Well done Bear78. You certainly kept me busy with the image submissions.

Fatherjack was missed. Seem to remember he was missing for the competition last year as well. Hope he's ok
Thanks guys! I actually figured Fatherjack would be my main competition on this.
