I'm late on this, I want to react on Chinner getting the ME3 OT.
Giving ME3 the DA2 treatment would be a great injustice, there is nothing that warrants that much mudslinging, especially before the game is even out.

I mean no offense but this recent post isn't really reassuring:
http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost...postcount=1052

I don't think if catering to the haters of the series is a good idea, when most ME3 threads are already full of negativity and complaints.
I don't say OTs should be fans only areas, but complainers already have tons of place to bitch about the game.

Just my 2 cents, I don't really care about who does the OT in the end, since I don't intend to discuss ME3 on GAF before a long time, and I'm not asking Chinner to step down or something, just stating my opinion.

I can do the ME3 OT if nobody else wants to, but I would keep it pretty simple and minimal, not like my last one. If somebody else would rather do it, just say so.

this was basically my idea/what i was doing for ME3 OT: I was basically going to make a youtube CYOA similar to those found for TF2. It would make fun of some GAF/ME mannerisms, but it wasn't actually going to be brutal, just silly. i had some backup ideas if this was going to fall apart.

however 3 truths have become apparent since I started working on it:
1. I really can't be bothered with drama over an OT
2. It's a time sink.
3. I've accepted ME's new direction and I'm chill with that. I'll play with other games.

if peopel want me to do i'll continue, but like i really don't want to be bothered with people moaning about some internet thread cuz i'm not licking it's balls by posing pr statements and character bios.

I don't have any problem with you doing it. I couldn't give a damn what the OP is as long as it isn't hive stirring dribble built to troll the fans and encourage yet another train wreck of whining and complaining. Since you don't seem to be intending that, I'm quite happy for you to do it if you still want to.

If not, I can do it, I just won't be going all out and crazy. Some simple headers and some information, then calling it a day. And yeah, it is a time sink :P.

You're most welcome to help out with the western launch thread for the PS Vita, if you want to. So far we got general information, a list of all launch titles (with screenshots and trailers), useful links and small FAQ section. weekend_warrior is providing the graphics and I'm doing the content.

Also I've run out of space in the OP. Should I have a separate "archive thread" and move things over once they become about three months old?

Or should we JUMP SHIP and create a new thread and I will have a few first postings which will be reserved? I would appreciate a Mod's input if possible.

Difficult decision, the archive thread appeals cleaning house would be the sticking point, I'd say the main listings of produced OT wouldn't really need to be in the OT OT more than two months, so a listing for the OT for a hypothetical December 1st launch title, should be archived 1st of Feb as would the OT for title launched the 31st December as most people looking for info will be in the first month of the titles launch with how game sales are front loaded and the GAF userbase?

Also being archived means the info isn't lost if the search feature closes, it might be nice if the archive could only be posted to by yourself and the mods to stop people crapping up a good resource but I don't know how viable that'd be.

My two cents on the matter, but I'm batshit insane...

Good luck then if you're doing it, as the game is just 4 weeks to launch.

In any case I think people just want a neutral OT instead of a more cynical one (apart from who is doing it), not a fans only area like Kurtofan says, as almost all the ME3 threads lately have been unbearable given the post-DA2 treatment.

Yeah, well, I'm gonna start working on it too, just to be safe. I have a lot of free time right now, might as well use it. Rather have it done than have to hurry and finish it at the last second.

I'd rather have some humor in the OT, too.

I agree with this, especially with how most threads on GAF usually go when Bioware is mentioned. I know Chinner says it's going to be funny and not berating, which I would be fine with, but I would feel better if he gave an example of what he was going to do. I want at least a little time in that OT before it turns into a bitchfest.

Mm after seeing some recent post like this:

It's as if someone concentrated all the hyperbole on GAF and unleashed it here.

You haven't seen anything yet. Wait until Mass Effect 3 arrives...

I have extremely high hopes for that OT. I hope Chinner doesn't let me down.

You for srs?

I'm even more convinced that anything but a proper neutral OT will be a disaster for ME3.

Hopefully Blue Ninja is doing it, really there aren't other instances when a joke thread can be used instead of the OT? Like Roboplato or Kurtofan I would really like some time in that OT before the bitching starts.

isnt there already a ME shit thread? I'm sure the OT creator who ever it is could get a mod to remind GAF to go there instead of shitting the OT up, as the way I see it no matter if it's fan drivel, jokes or just plain neutral it's going to be a melting pot of opinions due to the popularity of the series.

For the same thing, if there's already a bitching thread why not to append the joke thead there, or make a new one and just left the OT unbiased and informative, specially with a game so polarized, I mean, here you have like 6 opinions in a single page of people who are expecting a proper OT for the same situation:

I'm not fussed with how it goes tbh, I can see the arguments for all sides but also see no matter how biased/neutral the OT is, it'll be a troll fest for the first couple of weeks as you've pointed out the fans are so polarised on the matter, you can find as many posts in support of a whine thread OT, the fact Chinner has offered to free the OT up and has been told he's good to carry on makes it look like everyone complaining is making personal :-/

At the end of the day Blue Ninja is preparing a thread if Chinners thread is that bad. I'm sure the mods could just change the OT status of the thread to free it up for Blue Ninja, but as it stands it just looks like a witch hunt against Chinner.

This. Give the guy a chance. Sure, I'd love to post my draft of the OT (at least the text part of it's completely done and I think it's pretty awesome and funny), but this is Chinner's show and I trust him to do it. He still has a couple of days to get back in touch and let me know if he'll be handling it or not.

This game doesn't need a whiny bitchy OT, and that's not what Chinner is planning, either.

Of course is nothing personal againts Chinner, those responses were not directed to him, but the fact that he really dislikes the game and wanted this OT, exclusive this OT for a joke thread isn't reasuring at all. If he wanted to do the Witcher 2 OT I'm sure that no one would be worried.

You say that it's going to be probably a troll fest anyway, okay, but the ME2 OT and the recent GAF Plays have proved that the discussion and criticism can at least be civilized unlike the DA2 thread and the latest Bioware threads that have been shitted from the beggining.

Just that, no one is saying that it has to be a fans area at all, of course not, just a neutral-unbiased OT, like the 99.9% of the OTs in here.

Don't really want to drag this out as we're filling this thread with rubbish, detracting from it's intended purpose, but the ME2 OT is in community which is considered an area just for fans, a GAF plays will usually attract the same fan set as the community side, a new OT on the other hand will be in Gaming and people click in to see what's going on so traffic will be higher, they'll be people who picked ME1 / 2 up recently cheaply who'll never of posted in the ME 1 / 2 OT's.

You mention the Bioware situation, but the fact is they are fans they're just upset with how things are going, that many people dont troll for the sake of it (from the off, later it it's just the cool thing to do) hell the DA2 thread was from Evilore and he was a fan of DA, the game just sucked that hard it got shat on, nothing suggests Chinner is doing that hell even Blue Ninja has said Chinner isn't planning a DA2 style humiliation, as long as it has the basics about the game where's the harm of some fun?

It's got to be better than a fan overload threads which spawned a 1300+ thread about OT overload.

anyway I'm outta this thread to leave it for it's intended purpose, sorry Nemesis556.
