Game Topics vs DLC Topics
« on: August 06, 2010, 11:19:29 AM »
Categorizing things a little simpler to make discussions easier to find.  I've separated the "Xbox Live & Markeplace" board into 2 distinct boards.

Xbox Live Arcade & Indie Games (dedicated discussions for specific Arcade and Indie games)
Xbox Live Marketplace & Service (general discussions for things like firmware updates, apps, Avatar items, DLC, etc.)

The main reason is to give Arcade games the same recognition as full retail games.  They're getting more popular, especially with our Wednesday Game Nights.

I also moved all of the DLC topics to the Xbox Live Marketplace & Service board, but I'm considering merging those topics with their respective main game topic.

What do you think?  Would you like DLC discussions to be merged with their game discussions?

I'm all in favour of dedicating a section to arcade and indie games but I'd prefer DLC to be kept with the main game thread.

Democracy at its finest:

I've added an official poll to this question.  I'll leave it open over the weekend and finalize the results on Monday.

It kind of goes with my thoughts of having a fully A-Z games section.

Depends on the DLC for me, i'll normally post DLC stuff in the main game thread but if it's big DLC something like Gears 2 All Fronts then it probably deserves it's own thread.

Work has been so busy this week I forgot to revisit this.

Sometime this weekend I'll dig through the Marketplace board and start merging DLC topics with their game topics.

Good point,but where do you draw the line?
MW2 has loads of new maps,but they should be included in the main page instead of a new one.
I would say that if the dlc is just maps etc.,keep it in the main page.But,if the dlc contains a new episode,added gameplay variants etc.,then maybe a different page.Also depends on how 'big ' the game is.Gears deserves a second page,but games like The Saboteur dosn't.
Which brings me to RDR.This ones stuck in the middle,so I would go with it's own page.
Just throwing my penny in the cup.

i agree, episodic or story related DLC should have it's own page. Maps should be with the game.
