Keep major game discussion in their appropriate threads, please. Especially when talking about the ending. This is a deals thread. Keep it on topic.

Thanks.

I guess I'll just wait until either JakeNome gets the Cyan collection again for cheap or see if they go on sale for iOS again. I think I'd actually rather have them on iOS since they'd likely see more use from me on that platform, but they either haven't gone on sale ever (Riven) or haven't been on sale for going on 2 years.

Define major. Is that 5 posts? 10? The thread nannies need to know when to run for a mod.

Cause the best post that was deleted was the one that said "gee, if someone hadn't raised a stink about the off-topic discussion it'd probably be over already."

It's the content of a post or posts, not the quantity, that defines major game discussion.

Well we're quickly derailing into another argument about it, but there was nothing in any of those posts that qualified as a spoiler. Nothing. They show you the reapers in the commercials of the game. That's it. It's over.

Please, if you're not going to discuss Cubemen, you're going to have to move along.

There's plenty of things people could talk about if they really wanted to. I believe the only specific thing anyone asked not to discuss was the ME3 ending thing.

For example, anyone play the Primal Fears beta? Anyone planning on picking it up?

It has co-op and the 4 pack is at a pretty reasonable price (22.49).

I was giving Gamersgate some time to see if they were going to carry it, but they might not so Steam might be the way to go.

Cubeman is the daily deal today, it's been in a bundle before I believe...

Also, for Enchanced Steam it would be cool if it had the daily deal with a green border if you already owned it :)

I actually fired up Cubemen for the first time today. Played the demo. Didn't seem half bad for a TD game, that said it lacked a few things. The Cubemen are the same color so there's no definition/detail in them and also there's no zoom in feature to see the "battle" up close. For games like Defense Grid and Sol Survivor, zooming in to see the battles unfold is a really cool feature as is the detail of the different towers, ships, aliens, etc.

No clue on the banning.

I know, it sucks, but it's not about Cubemen. Some people around here are quick to run to mods, so lets stay on topic.

I think it was just major game discussion. If people want to sulk and pout about it so be it. The mods came down on the Amazon thread just the same and we just kept it moving.

And I'm sure whatever he got banned for, it wasn't for adding anything enjoyable to this thread. I've been on the wrong side of a warning from mods several times for various things and I've never been banned.

The discussion, whether off-topic or not, is what makes this thread. There are literally hundreds of places where I can check out the deals, but this is the only place where I can talk to you all. The deals are nice, but the discussion is what keeps me coming back to the thread. That's all I have to say about that.

I'm pretty sure I want Aliens: Colonial Marines. Steam is going to have to do better than offering me a S.H.A.R.P. Stick for a pre-order bonus though. It's a Steamworks game and the competition is already offering deals. I wish Steam would do better pre-order discounts.

I won't comment on the particulars (since I don't know any of them, nor is it my place) but I will say that I appreciated what he brought to this forum. Bummer.

And I get that. And I hate overbearing mods just as much as the next one (which is part of the reason they've warned me in the past for not taking them seriously when they come down on a thread).

That said, earlier a few members spoke up (asking nicely) for people to cut out the game talk and other members instead of being courteous about it decided to make a point of it. Mod came in, deleted like 2 or 3 pages of bickering and that was that. I didn't see anything Motoki did in those posts to warrant a ban so it had to be something else. If he did something that warranted a ban he probably deserved it because the mods around here have been pretty cool about things as far as I know. This isn't neogaf after all.

Edit:
And after seeing the PM in question, I see why he got banned. Justified if you ask me.

I SOOOOO want this game to be good. But I'm also SOOOOO apprehensive about anything that involves per-ordering it. I've been disappointed too many times by Alien games and my heart can't take another high dollar let down. I really hope it reviews well and that I'll be able to pick it (and Bioshock Infinite) up at a decent price during the summer sale.

This is absolutely untrue. By the time the complaining started, there were a total of six posts about ME3, and none of them revealed anything about the game. It was literally, "People hate ME3 just because of the ending" - "Was it really just the ending? I felt the entire game was a step back" - "The gameplay didn't bother me, just the story." Six posts, followed by pages of complaining about six posts.

If you're going to go around forwarding the PM to everyone, you might as well just announce that you reported him.

I'm almost willing to take a gamble on the STEAM pre-order since it's Gearbox and pre-ordering is something I rarely do.

I reported the PM, yes. I thought that much was obvious. I didn't report any of his posts though. I only report things that I think are truly offensive (and obviously the mod thought so too). But anyway, I'm done talking about it, I just didn't want anyone to think he got banned for his posts. Also, I never said I forwarded the PM to everyone.

I've got no problem with off-topic posts (in fact, I almost prefer them...), but the spoiler stuff has really been getting out of hand. Here, not so much, but it was going crazy on the Amazon thread. I haven't played ME3, and I'm really looking forward to it, so I don't want endgame discussions about it on this thread. Even if the discussion properly uses spoiler tags, it's only a matter of time before someone chimes in and forgets to do that... perhaps a new member. I've already gotten a number of plot points utterly ruined for me in Bioshock 1/2 because of posts on this thread or the Amazon thread (I forget which it was).

The mods are usually crazy lenient here, but they really cracked down on this already in the Amazon thread, so it's not a completely new concept here. There's a difference between talking about games and talking about endgame spoilers.
