I have an iPod but whenever I have seen or used a Zune I have always really liked it.

Congrats!

  • Bungie

I hear people talking about 1up a lot and may try it someday.

"One school of thought is that a systems war forum keeps that crap off the main forums, but I personally think that when system wars forums are allowed, they pretty much always spill onto the other forums.  Only site I can think of being an exception to that rule is SomethingAwful.com, for obvious reasons.

I feel like making a System War forum just encourages fanboyism to begin with.

I think that is called being a mod but a good idea nonetheless. I think the staff has something similar to this they are cooking up

True, but you don't want to have 50 mods just to approve and deny. Maybe I am wrong but it seems weird to a ton of mods just for that purpose.

It would be interesting if at some point after you have attained a great many points for editing not only do your edits show up instantly but you can also approve and deny other edits.

It would have to be a very large points number but it's an interesting idea.

I love the fact that games don't have platform specific forums. It's about the games not about what you play it on.

"Do the Mods process the submission too?"

Yeah

I hope they add a button that allows you to cancel a submission if it has yet to be looked at. Sometimes after you make an edit before it is cleared someone else has already done what you sent in.

It might help with the load.

EDIT: I don't think you can "ask" to be a mod, they pick you. If I remember I think Jeff said that if you ask you probably should not be one in the first place.

The never ending problem with Nintendo is their consoles never have a ton of great third party games. There are a number of notable ones but usually not as many as the competition.

As we have seen selling a third party game on the Wii usually means adding "Party" to it. The only platform right now that this isn't the case is the DS I think.

No and I hope there isn't one. It only causes fanboyism.
