GamerDNA Community Connection – Sept 24th 2009

Posted by archiveDNA on Thursday Sep 24, 2009.

Today I’m going to start a new gamerDNA blog article series called “Community Connection”.  The goal of these posts will be to surface cool stuff from the community by pointing out various games and game pages that are active right now, surfacing some great Game Posts/Screenshots/activities and conversations, or even some gamerDNA member spotlights.

Most recently the new-hotness in terms of game releases have been a handful of games: Batman: Arkham Asylum, The Beatles: Rock Band, Halo 3: ODST, and the newest MMORPG on the block, Aion.

Batman: Arkham Asylum

To start with Batman: Arkham Asylum, I’ve definitely got to point out Vice_Destroyer.  He’s been playing the game almost every day since release, and most recently unlocked  all achievements in the game, giving him the full 1,000 gamerscore points possible.  Hats off to that!

One of our more active PS3 community members has been MartB64, who has unlocked 54% of the trophies for the game.  He gave Batman: Arkham Asylum a Five Star rating, saying “Wow, I was totally blown away by the depth of this game. It’s the best game so far this year! I can’t say enough good things about it”.

The Beatles: Rock Band

The Beatles: Rock Band has been getting a lot of attention lately, and for good reason.  The game brings together the biggest band of all-time, with one of the biggest video game paradigm changes of all time (Music Gaming).  The result is something pretty special, and the community at gamerDNA has responded to it very well.

MrVista360 has been working his way through the achievements on the Xbox 360 version of the game, unlocking 15 in total so far, even playing the guitar on lefty mode specifically to unlock an achievement.

Halo 3: ODST

Halo 3: ODST is the newest addition to the Halo universe…and while we’re only a couple days into the game being available for play, results look promising.  The game has shot up to the #2 most play game spot on GamerDNA (2nd only to Halo 3), and the community is buzzing about it!

Tothcjt gave the game 5 stars, saying in his review: “This is a totally different game then Halo3. You can imply stealth to get around with The Rookie and then stealth around building to not fight hunters or other big enemies. Firefight mode is great and addicting, if it had matchmaking it would be a lot better but I guess playing with friends can be more fun.” Check his review out to see the interesting discussion that followed!


Aion is an MMO that is coming over to the  West from Korea, where the game has been out for a year and has already been quite successful.  NCSoft has made a very high polished/quality MMO with Aion, and many gamers are playing away this week as they try to level up as fast as possible in this PVP oriented MMO.

One of the more interesting things about the Aion community at gamerDNA is their love of sharing screenshots from the game.  This could be a reflection of the high quality graphics in the game, which result in some fantastic looking scenes. To date we have over 400 screenshots of Aion from our Community – a number that is growing daily!

KornCob has been very active in Aion, sharing many screenshots with the GamerDNA community.  One of my favorites is KornCob’s screenshot of the Sanctum, a beautiful looking castle that the Elyos race get to see in the game.

One of the top players of Aion on GamerDNA is LotusTheFallen, who has been playing the game while also sharing screenshots and game posts with the GamerDNA community. Check out their profile to see some great shots of the game, as well as to keep up with the ongoing story of LotusTheFallen’s journey in Aion!

That wraps it up for this GamerDNA Community Connection – If you have any feedback or thoughts on this post, or ideas for future Community Connection topics, please post them in the comments below!

See you in game!
