The Official Topic Redux |OT| Claim your game

Rebooting the thread as it sort of died in communities and going to change some of the tedium. We also had some instances of people doing OTs because they just didn't think to check this thread/knew it existed.


A note up front: Please read these guidelines before you make a claim for the first time. Please search (Ctrl + F) to make sure the game has not already been claimed.

If any juniors want to chip in with a request please do so. Work on it as normal and a member will sponsor the claim (until a clear direction is decided on by mods).

SOME BRIEF GUIDELINES ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS TO CLAIM HERE:
  • You're willing to work on it;
  • You'll update us if you change your mind;
  • You may be juniored if you don't deliver on your claim (as this negatively impacts others);
  • If someone else wants in after you, work with them. Also, if someone has claimed the OT already, PM them and offer some help (text, graphics etc.);
  • Claiming is about preventing two people wasting their time making dueling threads, it's not about excluding others;
  • Only claim games with a confirmed release date within twelve months;


HOW TO MAKE A CLAIM:
Check the game has not already been claimed in post #2
Title the game and just give me a mention using xenforo's @<username> feature


WHAT MAKES A GOOD |OT|?
  • Use your personal experience with the game/series;
  • Use a balance of text and graphics or host your images somewhere that will remain;
  • Point out the key features;
  • Post platforms, dates, publisher, developer info;
  • Explain the different versions, DLC and season passes;
  • Be sensible with *.gif and/or *.webm use;

Just here to say I really admire and appreciate the work that many of this boards members put into these OT's. As a member of over a decade it has always been one of my favorite features of this forum and I just want to thank those that put the effort in as well as those that contribute! Thank you all!

Thanks! Feel free to give it a shot if there's any game you think deserves its own thread. We could always use more contributions.

Don't think it must to be super fancy and filled with graphic elements either.
imo a good OT, more than anything, is one that properly informs people about the game. The aesthetics are just an optional bonus, the icing on the informational cake.
Even then you can always reach out if you want help with elements, I'm usually down to collaborate as well.

How would you make a good OT anyways, I'm not good with image editing lol
Glad you asked. That very question in answered in the OP lol

As far as editing images, you can use free software like GIMP or Krita to get your feet wet.
There's a plethora of great tutorials on Youtube ranging from beginner to expert. Or alternatively, you can ask for help with images from any of us.

I love you and couldn't agree more. I'm not the guy though =/

Hype Train conductor. Works harder than it steams.
Do we make |OT| for PC ports of big titles like TLOU or Returnal?
If so, I'll gladly take care of the TLOU one in March.
Yup, I'll put you down
Do we really need 2 OT's for the same game just because one is for PC?
I understand when it's been years but the TLOUPT1 OT is fairly new, Returnal is different if the OT is dead now as it's an older game.
I never really saw the point of the PC OT's
Next you'll have Xbox/Playstation & Nintendo asking for separate OT's 😳

Also no one has done the Crisis Core OT?

OT is probably not the right word for it, I agree. If the game was released on PC and consoles simultaneously then obviously we wouldn't need a seperate OT for PC.

I just see it as a way to concentrate post in one thread instead of having multiple ones. PlayStation releases on PC are usually a big thing and you end up having a thread for launch, another for DF/NX reviews and sometimes others about sale, concurrent players or bug fixing. Would be better to have one big thread for everything related to the PC version in my opinion. There's probably a way to name it correctly but I just don't know.

I'll grab Diablo IV if it's unclaimed as we get closer to release. I'm not sure yet what my schedule will look like in '23 so I don't want to claim it now.

If you need some stuff I can probably help out. My shop skills are not super great but enough to slap some fancy text on things.

game is coming out soon, so i think i'm gonna start work on the OT for Pizza Tower. I think I'm gonna keep it simple, some GIFs and images but nothing too snazzy. OTs with a lot of content take forever to load

I try to whip up something for Fire Emblem Engage, due to release next week. If anyone wants to do a banner for me, I gladly take it.

Thanks, though i don't need it anymore.

I was initially going to put it in but then i thought it'd be more creative and sweet to draw it myself. I feel like a cartoony Neogaf logo would be quite easy to do and add a bit of flair to the OT

Sorry for wasting your time like this

No need to apologize. Anyone can use these for any future threads now. This thread can double as a resource library imo.

Does this look good to y'all? really enjoying this so far, everythings going along smoothly

(and yes the banner is lifted from the steam page)
I'd say you've got the style down with the how loose it looks, although 'TOWER' has sharper pixelated edges. The brush you used for the 'NEOGAF OT' lettering looks more like an airbrush, which makes it a noticeably soft-edged imo.

ah yeah i noticed that, i can't really figure out how to make sharper edges in krita though.

plus, the banner is quite small so i don't think many people will notice. at least, i hope no one notices. I've already saved and placed it in the thread for now

Sorry, I'm not very familiar with Krita, but I'd imagine looking up pixel art tutorials for Krita on youtube would get you most of the how.
