@Mods - can we sticky this in the main forum. It became apparent that not a lot of people even knew the thread existed to claim official topics and it needs the exposure


A note upfront: 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:
1.) Copy the code below depending on what kind of topic you are planning to make. Before doing so, be sure to remove the *'s from the code so it works.

Code:
[b*]TITLE[/b] by [i*][ur*l=http://www.neogaf.com/forum/member.php?u=9647]AUTHOR[/url][/i] ([u*rl=http://www.neogaf.com/]EXPRESSION DATE[/ur*l])
RELEASE DATE
2.) Replace the data with your own data.
  • Title refers to the title of the topic you are claiming.
  • Author refers to your username, as well as a link to your own profile
  • Expression Date refers to the date you claimed the topic, and links back to that post.
3.) Include the expected release date for the product / event / whatever in that same post


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;

The above thread idea and maintenance have been done in the past by Nemesis_ and TheMoon. Who have since moved on. They provided a great community service and have the thanks and respect that go with that.
Anything needing a status update can have a reserve claimer. I will tidy this up over the next week. If someone wants to make one for Off-Topic feel free - I'm just trying to maintain what we have so far.

Did someone already call dibs on the Secret of Mana Remake OT? It's not due until February 15th but I already prepared some basic stuff incl. a version comparison and love to do the OT for that game.

I mean the list couldn't be shorter and easier to just look at. Thread included. Seriously, if you can't be bothered to CTRL F "mana" at least, how do you expect anyone to look at your OT? Sorry for the attitude but...

You should be. Stop being a dick!

Of course I'm able to read the list. I asked the question because there might be someone going to read this thread who's already committed to a SoM Remake OT. It's a rather new thread.

Soo.. Since these seem unclaimed and are coming up, I'll make a few MOVIE OTS


[OT] Murder on the Orient Express by Kimawolf ( 11/2/17)
Nov 9th 2017

Since the person making the Justice League OT is banned I'll make it :

[OT] Justice League by Kimawolf (11/2/17)
Nov 17th 2017


And finally, I'll be able to work on the Star Wars VIII OT and anyone willing to help with banners or something or who wants to do it altogether sure. I will work on one as a backup in case one doesn't appear.

[OT] Star Wars VIII by Kimawolf (11/2/17)
Dec. 14th 2017 (back up)

Star Wars Battlefront 2? Anyone? NOV 17TH


Any CoD: WW2 OT? Is comes out tomorrow. If no I will throw one together tonight quickly so there is one at least.
Did COD. will also do others if need be just so we have them until more people volunteer.

Xenoblade 2 by Kimawolf (Nov 2nd)

So, what's the over-under on claiming an OT for a game that didn't get one on first release but is now coming to other platforms?

Polybius came out at the start of the year on PS4 and didn't get much coverage on here, so I'd like to do an OT for it when the PC release happens. Should be sometime this month if PC Gamer and Jeff Minter are to be believed.

I'd like to know where we stand on this too. I've been thinking of putting together an OT for Skyrim on Switch. What was the protocol before? Update and bump the original OT? Make a new one?

Need for Speed: Payback by TaurezAG (November 1, 2017)
Release date: November 10, 2017
Deluxe Edition early access: November 7, 2017
Play First trial: November 2, 2017

I'll need help creating the thread though.
If you still need someone to post your OT, let me know. My Mario Party OT will be going up around the same time. I can post yours if someone hasn't already contacted you.

Yeah, there's also Dead Rising 4 PS4 w/ all DLC etc. in December.

I would say if the release has more software, DLC, enhancements then make a new OT - for example, Skyrim Enhanced Edition got a new | OT |

If the game is also/or coming to new platforms then again a new | OT | would be acceptable. I'd also go a little further in some instances and detail the exact features for the release, especially in the case of the Switch. What switch features and/or software are sepcific to that platform etc. - for example L.A. Noire has an | OT | reservation - although not heard from the creator so will PM them.

In fact if anyone wants to reserve L.A. Noire, just in case - just throw your name down.

I would also add to people who may be hesitant they can't do it remember OT threads are made for people to discuss said game/movie/event. You don't need to be super fancy. Do your best and add all relevant information.

All we can do is our best. Eventually we will get better and it will come faster and easier, but don't be intimidated.

That's inspiring!

Im expecting my first baby in 3 weeks, but will try to take on the task of Black Friday and Cyber Monday OT.

not sure how good it will be, but it will at least be somewhere to discuss and contain some information


edit - this is a weird OT though, so when should it go up?? like now.. and i can update as we go, or just make it a a few days before??

Hi, I still plan to do both OTs for Ace Combat and EDF but only after they are released worldwide. I won't do Japan-only/import OTs.

Cool, thanks. The PC release date for Polybius seems to be shifting around based on further research, so shall I stick an official claim in now with a vague "Holiday 2017 / Early 2018" date, or wait it out until something more concrete comes along?

If the latter, I'll just treat this as my unofficial claim until then :p

fuck evil lore in the ass though
G'bye.

And? The X1X is one of those products where virtually everyone who wants one knows what it is. You don't really need an OT that's as long as War and Peace for that thing. (The OT on Era is only slightly longer anyway, so...??)

Also it was done at the last minute because no one had claimed it. Thread looks pretty good, all things considered.

Good luck trying to engage the "community" to produce stuff.
Thanks for the encouragement. Same sentiments to the other place ;)

What? Umm anyhow people are trying. It takes time to make a good OT. And our One X thread was made last minute.

The OTs will get better and better.

I will have the DOOM and Murder On the Orient Express OTs done tomorrow as well btw folks.

Time will tell, but sticking this NOW when the community is flatline'd and not THEN when it was healthy seems a bit shitty.

People, including myself were doing a good job by bringing up quality content in a self managed system without external help, now that you have it, I want to see how good can you get.

Excellent, time to get to work!

How useful would an OP generator be to help creators?

Type some stuff, upload an image, click a few buttons, and then generate the BBcode.

...I'm happy to create this.
I'd probably end up putting mine together manually, but that sounds like it could be really handy for people that aren't super confident in their OT making abilities.

So rather than coming in to reclaim the RE7 Gold and Okami OTs that Jawmuncher is picking up the slack on, you're here to shitpost about how GAF is doomed under the guise of holding it to some high standard because the |OT| OT is stickied now?

Seems more like you're looking for something to complain about. GAF was hardly hurting for OTs when this thread was non-sticky prior to the meltdown.

Very constructive, thanks for your contribution ;)
