Separating episodes in the plot of Sam & Max Save the World
Hi S@bre! I've noticed you're pretty adamant about keeping the Sam & Max Save the World#Plot the way it is. I agree that, as prose, it reads well. However, Wikipedia is a reference work, so I think it would be beneficial if a reader could discern where an episode's plot starts and ends, without having to guess or refer to the next section. For example, if I'm playing the game, I may want to read the plot only for the first episode to get a feel for it, and have a choice to not look at the plot for the second episode, as I may not want to know any more in advance. Not marking the starts and ends of episodes takes this choice away from the reader -- at least, that's how I felt when I looked up the page halfway through playing Season 1. I agree, though, that the section headings are ugly. Here are some possible compromise solutions:
1. Use paragraph titles instead of section headings. Example:
2. Same, except inline with the text:
3. Parenthetical, in context:
4. Any of the above in boldface instead of italic, for better visibility.
5. Separate episode plots into their own articles, as in Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space. Probably an overkill at this point.
Anyways, I'm not trying to be a hardass about this but in my opinion there really is an issue here that needs addressing, that it needs to be clear for a casual reader where the plot of one episode starts and where it ends. By "casual" I mean one who expects to get this information from the "Plot" section without having to piece it together from the rest of the article. Yes, this duplicates information, but in this case I think the redundancy is justified because the two sections (Plot and Episodes) have different purposes (plot overview vs release information) and it makes sense for each to be self-contained.

Can you clarify why you're protecting this line? The article does indeed claim that the crisis caused Ghost to be shelved, but that's not in accordance with what we previously understood and it's highly unlikely a British rag would have any special insight to the matter. And if they did they didn't include it in the report. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 22:52, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
Proposal to raise FT criteria to requiring 50% featured
I'll try and look some stuff up for LeChuck when I can, I'm tied up as hell and only able to work in bursts lately. Of the trio he might be one of the more difficult.--Kung Fu Man (talk) 03:19, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

The whole game is about using eco[Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy]. You can't just take that information out, Jak uses eco throughout all the games. —Preceding unsigned comment added by MyChemicalRomance1302 (talk • contribs) 13:03, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

I believe that I have addressed all of your concerns, and the article is ready for another look. I'm still looking for a picture, but as you said, that isn't required. --PresN 18:13, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
Call of Duty: World at War GAN update
tales of monky island
hi there, ill get straight to the point, i actually asked Nintendo us when they think chapter 5 would get released on wiiware and they said they had a vague idea of either 02/01/2010 or 02/08/2010, they also mentioned the eu version would be released shortly after. I presume there is some copyright issues or something going but i think you should make a penultimate edit by just stating "February 2010" for US and "March 2010" for EU and then when you find official dates make a final edit etc.
btw i usually come here to check up on the release date so could you pop me a reply when you find official dates
ok i found a website related to the official wiiware release date for US http://uk.wii.ign.com/articles/106/1065388p1.html which will tell it IS in fact February 1, 2010 —Preceding unsigned comment added by TheRedGoldfish (talk • contribs) 21:17, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Tales of Monkey Island EU Chapter 5
I would like to say that the release date you have posted for the EU Chapter 5 is in fact false as I have logged onto the wii shopping channel and it is not there - try setting it to next week or just put "February/March 2010" :)
I don't want to edit it myself in case I get in trouble

No, I was not attempting to make a point; You see, I was naïve, and believed that page was unnecessary, and could be merged with the Portal page. The page, that gives only vague information about GLaDOS. Anyway, I'd suppose it's all part of the learning process. Mastado (talk) 03:03, 17 February 2010 (UTC)
Regarding this: if the gameplay relates to Brood War in particular (i.e., if it wasn't so popular until Brood War came out, or something like that), then it certainly isn't clear from the text. rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 14:15, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
