@Jogurt: That's strange that alcohol wouldn't have helped, it's a legit fix for dirt and grossness discoloring a game controller or handheld. we've really got no idea when replacement parts will be available to order, though. you might try contacting Nintendo as suggested.

guys, it's just a fad. a couple years ago it was e-mail addresses ending in @.pl, that was a huge spam fad, then last year inserting links into forum profiles/signatures and not posting anything was all the rage (on sites that had public profiles, like ours, it would result in more google hits for their crap). right now, apparently they're getting aggressive and as soon as they sign up they pound the main site with comments. It happens.

I've made some suggestions to Ant, we had a fix in place a couple days ago but then they changed things up so that our fix no longer works. it's okay, we'll work something out to take out these jerks before they bother anyone, but in the meantime, we very much appreciate not only your patience but your understanding as it may take us a bit to get back to our computers and delete the comments in question.

by the way — in cases of this, where one obvious spammer has posted multiple comments, just report ONE of them and move on, please. we have ways of finding the rest of their posted content and we will delete it as soon as we can. we greatly appreciate you bloodhounds who report every single piece of spam a bot has ever posted, but multiply that by four or five and i'm sure you can imagine the mess we have to wade through in our inboxes. :3

Ok you can't really tell that by the topic, they are all about US releases. So that's why i am afraid of spoilers. Sometimes european game, especially on Nintendo systems come really late in EU then the rest of the world, so that's what i'm worried.

If this isn't gonna happen i will stay on the site, i don't really have time to check closely any thread to avoid spoilers...sorry.

that's okay, it's certainly your choice to do so, and there's nothing wrong with that :3 I'm afraid a 'Europeans only' section of the forums is probably not going to happen; we can't enforce segregation of our users in such a manner, and besides that there are many users hailing from one region who choose to import from another. They'd be just as likely to insert spoilers into a topic for their home region as someone from the other, y'know?

That said, Tech101 is right — most users here, when posting spoilers for a brand new game, will insert a big 'SPOILER ALERT' (or similar) beforehand so that other users who haven't gotten that far yet may skip that portion of their comment(s). If you're looking to remain entirely spoiler-free with regards to a new TV show, book, movie, or video game, though, the internet in general is not your friend tbqh. I know I tend to avoid forum threads here sometimes if I'm in the middle of playing a game I don't want to be spoiled for, and there are other news sites, forums, and places on the internet I also avoid because I know people who've rushed through the game want to talk about it and I don't want to get spoiled accidentally. :3

Now, I completely agree with you on multiple people giving an opinion on it. I found Nintendolife's removing of their review for Zero Escape to be odd because, quite frankly, is it so wrong ot have different opinions on a game? They were two very different viewpoints. One had played its predecessor (from US) the other hadn't (EU). One gave it a 10, the other an 8. Is it so wrong to have both? It wouldn't be the first site to do it.

If you're saying you'd like to see multiple staff members do proper reviews of a given game, you're more than welcome to suggest the idea to the directors, but I think you got the wrong idea about what happened with that particular review somehow. It had nothing to do with differing viewpoints; Damo explained (and I know you're aware of it, moomoo, because you were one of the people who had e-mailed asking for further explanation) that there was an unfortunate disagreement between the original reviewer and the editorial staff. When he left, all of his reviews were taken down in his wake.

he may have asked that they be taken down or demanded it, i have no idea what happened between him and the editorial team, but with those reviews gone, we had to replace them — I'm pretty sure replacing the Zero Escape review took priority since the Vita version review had gone up at Push Square shortly after the original 3DS version review had been taken down at NL. I'm not sure what else is still waiting to be replaced offhand; i know the same person also reviewed that Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva movie, though.
