The plot for Gears is definitely thin. I don't think it's a huge spoiler what was shared, and there aren't any major twists.

However, I recall everyone still being careful discussing Bioshock's plot in reference to the remasters and the disabled DVR, and there are people who never played it the first time around. So it's kind of relative, I'd hate to spoil the twists in that game for someone who hasn't played it.

There was a plot? Oh shit, all I remember is "BACK OFF OLD MAN! I'LL DO THIS ON MY OWN!"

If this was a Gears 4 thread then I could understand story/spoiler talk otherwise there is no reason for it. It takes a second to put something in spoilers for people who might not have played the game yet. This is a deals thread and people shouldn't be expected to have random games spoiled for them in it. I personally am not really bothered by spoilers but obviously some people are so use common courtesy.

Would be nice if they started the Christmas sale a little early — like tonight — and there’s decent new stuff and not retreads of the BF sale.

This is the correct answer.

If deals were the ONLY thing ever discussed in here, I'd agree. But they're not. We go off topic from Monday at 9pm until Monday at 6pm. To expect people not to talk about plot in any of the games they play because someone may have gone 2 years without playing that game containing the plot they so greatly care about, is asinine. I do agree that spoiler tags are easy to use. But I think it's being blown out of proportion here.

The only things appearing to count down for date night are the Injustice 2 bundles, which will probably flip over to Gold only after the free play weekend.

 

A couple of the GTA with fish card bundles are counting down to midnight Eastern instead of midnight UTC.  Possibly the start of the countdown sale?

Boo! Make it happen at 7 EST.

You have your orders Bloomy!!!

Also in those orders:

- lots of backwards compatible titles
- lots of digital only games
- lots of games that haven’t been on sale
- cheaper prices on games that have been on sale

Got it? Think that’s a reasonable list of requests.

Punch and Pie. More people will come if they think there will be punch and pie.

Please don't spoil things. There's no reason to bring up the ending of Slaughterhouse-Five, who cares that it's 50 years old. People don't have a right to not get spoiled, but that doesn't give you the right to be a dick about it.

Basically. I don't know how anyone thinks it's OK to spoil things for other people. Especially where we have a spoiler tag to help with that. So either you're too lazy to use the tags or you just get a kick out of spoiling shit.

Wait. Are we okay to talk about the plot for Oedipus Rex? It's been over 2000 years.

SIX min WHISTLE

Posted 18 December 2017 - 06:45 PM

We do have spoiler tags, I think we should us them even is something is older. It only adds one click. It's like when we were discussing KotOR a couple months ago, even though the game is old it was recently brought back up in a format that brought in new players. I think the same could be said for GWG games or stuff added to Game Pass or EA Access.

 

Anyways, looking at my stats a bit further, I think some of their genres are borked. It says my third most played genre was RPG with only 90 hours, which was pretty much only my Mass Effect Andromeda time. I played a decent amount of Fallout 4, as well as Skyrim, Dragon Age Origins, New Vegas, Nier, Witcher 3, and Divinity Original Sin. I'd guess between all of those I should have at least 200 hours of RPG this year.

Was tempted until I realized it's likely the one that I can't use,


  1. 1 John 1:7,9

But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

I think for our purposes, you can easily discuss the plot without having to describe the ending. "The ending was a bit of a letdown compared to what was built up." "The ending had this insane twist I never saw coming, and it really ties the story together." Those don't spoil what happened, but do allow you to express your opinion of it.

For the most part, reviews in this thread center around new releases and games currently on sale. Both of those should be kept spoiler free, or within tags if you think it's that vital to understanding why you did/did not like it.

Spoilers about one of the biggest movies of the year less than a week after it debuted? GTFO.

As usual, we're on the same wavelength.

I feel like some of you don't realize some of us didn't have the hardware to play some of these games until recently. I sure as hell don't want to be spoiled on any game I haven't played on the One yet. I've had my One X since launch, do you really think I've beat even a handful of games yet? No. In fact, I've beat one whole game, Gone Home. So I'd appreciate if this thread had a lack of spoilers. The only other game I beat this gen was on PC, Fallout 4. I haven't even finished the Brotherhood story yet, so I still don't want to see spoilers for Fallout 4 either.

Anyone else suffering from backlog creep. Where you don’t have anything you’re really into playing so you start games in the backlog, only to quit out and go to another one looking for something to “grab” your attention. It sucks to be feeling so blah about everything.
