Don't know if this has been suggested before but oh well...

Would it be possible to add the option to lock your own blogs or threads (threads outside the trading section)? Sometimes they get derailed or at other times they can be bumped after a very long time for no reason. Say you make a blog, there are a lot of comments underneath, you get the option to lock it before it goes too haywire. Or if you make a thread asking for help, you can lock it when it's been resolved, preventing pointless bumps by random people. Having the option to lock without bothering mods with constant reports if things go bad or whatever can help keep things clean and proper.

Nah, those reports are not affecting us mods at all. Besides, that power would be abused.
Also, if you have a problem and got help... Why lock it? What if someone else needs help with the same problem, but the solution doesn't work for them?

If the same solution doesn't work for everyone, then that's not the same problem, it's a similar one. Also, I'm referring to things like threads asking for something in a game too (eg: Pokemon) and having the ability to lock it once that's done. It's not as much as to moderate yourself as much as it is to keep things clean. In case some thread goes wild, it's not very good to see like half the posts deleted, is it? As for blogs, same, when the cancer starts to spread, you stop it right there. No need for reports. I get what you mean, some people may abuse it, but it could potentially be a good thing if used properly and in moderation.

  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    Ittt was in developement for longer than it should have, i did play the hunters first hunt demo which was different and released two years before the final version came out
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    how different was it?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    originally it was meant to have actual metroids and space pirates in it but they changed it over the course of developemtn, it got delayed due to them waiting for the network capabilities to be there fully to take advantage of the full network service etc which launched later
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    the demo has actual metroids in it too
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    it only has basically multiplayer stages/trials, the demo but still it wasn't too bad
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    you already said it had metroids
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but yea...I still enjoyed the final game... no i mean the demo might not have had them given it was demo but it did
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    there were still some metroid like enemies in the final, like those leeches or what they were
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    either way the story got changed a bit but still, you can progress in singleplayer in not strictly a linear way at some point you can pick a planet to go to first after the initial stuff...and it can be challenging...theres also a bad ending and a good ending with the second final boss fight
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    i like that its more action based and yet allows you more freedom than some of the later metroid games
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I think overall my personal favorites are the original gameboy metroid 2 and metroid hunters, thouh i havent played hunters for about a decade
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but still, what i played was great
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    I also played other ds fps games like the call of duty ds games and goldeneye rogue agent
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    and im also convinced that it uses a heavily modified unreal engine that got changed...you see there was a cancelled nintendo 64 DD port of Unreal (due to N64DD not coming out) that was based on an alpha/beta version of Unreal but re-written almost completely
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    if you change the display mode it has some of the same graphical glitches like Unreal 0.83 had for example and I saw editor screenshots from one of the level designers
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    it looked to me like a heavily changed unreal editor
