Labor Day Weekend Sale: Day 2


With a multitude of items made limited, put on sale, and new versions of old gear, there is something for everyone (provided you have a small amount of robux). I will be listing the items that are featuring in this catalog sale and will be giving them a rating and a recommendation as to whether I would purchase them or not. Of course, as I am writing this in the opinionated style of a reviewer, you may take this in the subjective manner that is intended. You are welcome to make your own decisions on whether a sale item is for you or not. I will just be aiming to look for good value-for-money traits. So let us get into this second overview!

Meet razecpt, Your New Intern!

Hello, I’m razecpt a summer intern here at Roblox News.


 I found roblox back in 2010 when I saw a friend playing it, So I made an account. As soon as I started I got hooked to the idea of user made games. So I made several accounts finally settling on razecpt. I played lots of games back then: Flight simulators, Obbys (it got old really fast), tycoons and First Person Shooters. Now I’m more of a builder.


Editorial: Overall Impressions of the Summer Games


So it's nearly been a month since the ROBLOX Summer Games ended and it's about time I shared my thoughts on the event: both the positive and negatives aspects which users and myself have noted. I will be breaking down my thoughts on the different sections that made up the Summer Games, including: the user-sourced games chosen, the gameplay, the prizes, and of course the somewhat controversial use of playerpoints and an exclusive leaderboard system to calculate winners. During this article, I will be making some comparisons to other official ROBLOX events, but please note I will be judging the event purely on its own merits.


Before we dig in, let us first take a step back and discuss the background of the event itself. Following in the footsteps of the largely successful ROBLOX Winter Games which could be played throughout February 2014, the Summer Games sought to build on its achievements. This Summer's event utilised the new 'Playerpoints' introduced by the ROBOX team - points earned in-game, distributed by the developer as they see fit for in-game activities and achievements. Each game has a pot of playerpoints to distribute, with the exact number of points dictated by the amount of Robux spent by players on things such as game passes and consumables. This means the playerpoints pots can de facto run-out, an issue I will be covering later in this editorial. Playerpoints earned are displayed on player profiles next to the white star symbol and players are placed on a leaderboard for weekly, monthly, and all-time playerpoint scores. The key similarity with the Winter Games is that the games chosen were user-created. The main difference is that these games were not purpose built for the Summer Games like some of those featured in the Winter Games, but already existed before the event. However, that's enough background. Time to get into the editorial!

SmashBlox: The New Platformer on the Block


The platformer-fighter game genre is relatively new, only being around since 1999, yet it's now one of the most beloved and recognizable game types of all time. Haven't heard of it? Maybe you've heard of Super Smash Bros - the first, most successful, and arguably best platformer-fighter which takes memorable characters from Nintendo franchises (and some third party), pits them against each other on a multitude of stages with references to all of the deep corners of Nintendo's history.
