Why is this still sticky? The releases are for last september...
Read Status Update. I mean I say it in the title too...
I meant to edit my post! so sorry for that. I meant to emphasis the 'sticky' part, I understand why the thread is out of date.. Just didn't know why it was still up top, why it couldn't have been re-stuck when it was re-activated. That said, I liked the original post a lot and look forward to the day when you crank it up again.
I sent a message to the person who stickyed it to close it or take it down for now, but it seems he hasn't been on lately.

[HEADING=1]Official Game Release Calendar[/HEADING]


[small]Find all you need concerning the release dates of your favourite titles. Formatting courtesy of [user]Claymorez[/user].[/small]

I'm not much one for introductions, but here we go. My name is EcksTeaSea and some of you might have seen me post around here for a while now. Awhile ago I had an idea of a game release calendar for the Escapist to put on the main page where every date can be found instead of going around and searching for them on various sites. Couple nights ago I sent a mail to [user]Spinwhiz[/user] and asked about the status of my idea and said if the editorial couldn't do it right now, I would be happy to do it myself. They gave me the go ahead so here it is...

WELCOME TO THE ESCAPIST GAME RELEASE DATE CALENDAR

Here you will find every the dates for every game for UK, AU, and NA. I have done to the best of my ability that I can to make sure that these dates are correct.

Credit will be given where credit is due to anyone who comes up with things or ideas to make this better and neater.

I hope to continue working on this and for people to submit ideas and eventually have a couple of people helping me with this for fact checking and such. Hope you all like it and no longer will have to go around looking for dates, its all here now (for the most part).

Please don't flame other users or start arguments in here. Talk about the games you are excited for and whatever else, but I don't want to see flaming in here. I made this thread in hopes I could help people, but I will gladly ask for it to be shut down at any point if people start acting really bad to each other.

[HEADING=3]Update Status[/HEADING]

10/5 - So I can't continue working on this for the time being. Work is now putting me on overnight shifts and then school in the morning and sleep in the afternoon before waking up to do whatever I have in the night. In short? I am exhausted.

[HEADING=3] Notices/Notes[/HEADING]
IMPORTANT NOTICE ON VAGUENESS!!! I'm starting to notice that dates are getting really vague and I am trying my best to give you guys the best guess of when the game will actually come out. Many sites have conflicting dates and info so please bear with me.

[HEADING=3]Milestones[/HEADING]
HUZZAH! 1000 VIEWS! - May 28.
Hot damn, 2000 views! - June 23.
3000/4000 views! Thank you for coming around to check out dates (Forgot to label when I had 3000 views) - September 5.



[li]All dates are NA unless said otherwise.[/li]

[li]These dates are correct as far as my fact checking goes. If you spot anything wrong, please tell me and I will correct it right away.[/li]

[li]Any games that I might have missed notify me and I will add it.[/li]

[li]I will not be adding anything for NGP until the actual handheld comes out.[/li]

Why no PC?
PC didn't get done for September because I didn't have the energy or time to do it. Starting again with January, there will be 360, Wii, PS3, DS, PSP, and PC.

I usually just go here http://www.mightyape.co.nz/Games/Coming-Soon/ for when things release cause you can also choose what platform you want to view (yes it's a nz site, i'm from nz, but it should still give a rough idea).

This is a cool idea.

Although...

The complete lack of PC games makes this thread completely useless to me, and a bunch of other PC master race representatives gamers.

Yeah I read the title thinking it would include PC but nope... might want to change that to Inferior Gaming Platform CONSOLE Release Dates: *For PC dates visit a more PC friendly website and give your traffic dollars to them instead*

Seconded. I really don't see the point in this thread being stickied if it's not going to get updated. It's been over a year now.
