Je teste les eaux, d'un coup qu'y aille du monde icitte qui voudraient avoir une place pour s'jaser en français.

Bon je vais essayer d'écrire d'une manière moins Québécoise pour atteindre un niveau de langue (et de compréhension) un peu plus général(e) pour la communauté internationale  ;)

En bref, étant donné que tout le monde ici parlent anglais, je suis curieux de savoir qui d'autre à part moi parlent le français sur le forum. Ça fait vachement du bien d'écrire en français pour une fois, et qui sait, peut-être ne suis-je pas le seul? Sinon ça pourrait servir de discussion pour ceux et celles souhaitant pratiquer et enrichir cette langue car je suis certain que, à défaut de ne pas être francophone de naissance, il doit au moins forcément avoir certains d'entre vous qui sachent la parler comme étant une langue seconde, voire voudrait la pratiquer/enrichir. Je crée cette discussion un peu par curiosité mais aussi pour le plaisir de pouvoir écrire en Français, et apprécier ce don qu'est de connaître la langue de Molière!

N'hésitez-pas à répondre en français, même s'il n'est pas parfait, même si t'écris avec un osti d'gros d'accent du Québec comme eul mien, ou même en anglais! Il me fera plaisir de discuter avec vous en français que ce soit de sujets divers ou même pour vous aider dans votre apprentissage de la langue!

====================

I'm testing the waters on a French speaking thread. I took a look at the forum rules and didn't see anything about not speaking english on the forums, but feel free to reply in English in this topic if you wish so. My goal isn't to alienate non-french speakers, but rather to see who here speaks French, have a discussion about the french language (even in English if you prefer) and also help those who wish to learn / improve their French. If this thread somehow breaks a rule (by being mostly in French), I am sorry.

Video Game Database Discussion / Xbox 360 / Xbox One Cross-platform games
« on: February 22, 2021, 08:39:18 pm »
In what category should these games be listed under? I'm talking about games that have the Xbox One box type but with both Xbox One and Xbox 360 logos on it. In this instance, what is priorised? Should we list it under Xbox 360 since these games originally came out on 360, or should it be Xbox One since they have the XBONE box type and are playable on that console as well? Or a brand new category?

Any idea what this is and where it comes from? I picked this in a lot I bought from some random lady, cover art does not look to have been printed by a regular printer, yet it's slightly less detailed than what I'm used to with legit 360 box art. Back art looks like a regular retail release but there is no barcode. There is a disc inside, looks like a normal Minecraft X360 disc but I have not tested it yet. There is no manual, and this box is not a regular green 360 box.

Video Game Database Discussion / Database upload bug?

I tried uploading a new item to the database but weirdly it only created empty entries. Tried twice and it failed twice. Some sort of bug perhaps?

Video Game Database Discussion / A quite weird Patapon (PSP) release
« on: December 30, 2019, 10:18:49 am »
Take a look at this Patapon release:



That's a factory sealed copy. See that "Favourites" label? That's actually a sticker OVER the seal. Ok so maybe there's still the same label under the seal right? Take a better look:



Oh... so it's a Greatest Hits release then? But why is the box side not red like literally all Greatest Hits releases? So... perhaps that counts as a black label release?? This is by far the most confusing release I've ever come across. Should I upload this as a regular release, a Greatest Hits release or a Favourites release? Or better yet, should it be Patapon - Greatest Favourites Black Label Hits Canadian Frankenstein?

I need help for this one.

-----------------------------
SCEA Employee: So, what release should we make for Patapon?
SCEA Boss: Yes.

Video Game Database Discussion / Xbox Magazine Demo Discs
« on: November 08, 2019, 07:07:48 pm »
There are two types of Xbox Magazine demo discs, the ones that come in a thin plastic box and those that just come in some cardboard.



Our database is completely out of order. There is no indication of which are the small cardboard editions and which are the larger plastic case editions. I'm about to list a ton of them on the database so I would like to know what should we use to differ between the two Xbox magazine demo disc formats?

Site Feedback / Submit New Item button missing
« on: May 11, 2019, 07:47:14 pm »
I just logged on to continue uploading the games that I own which are not in the database and I've noticed a new "Currently Playing" tab which I guess is an okay idea but the button under my profile logo to submit new items is gone. What is going on? How can I submit new items now?

General / This kid on Ebay is hilarious! XD
« on: April 28, 2019, 06:05:41 pm »
Today, as I was re-checking my collection I realised that my jewel case of GTA Vice City for PC comes in a "big box" with inserts and all sort of stuff that I don't have. So I'm on Ebay, looking for a big-box release of Vice City to replace my "loose" copy, and then come across one only 500 km away from me (I live in Canada so here that's not that much). I ask the guy if he has all the inserts and stuff and to take a picture of the box if possible. Then I get this reply:

Yep, my mom takes the pictures for me and she used my templete for used and not sealed.

So, the game was sealed 2 minutes ago.

I opened it and everything is there. The jewel case is obviously sealed. It has the tourist guide and the map. Everything including the registration card.

I should not have opened it but I just wanted to be sure for you.

Have a look at the attached picture too.


Attached with this message, is this picture:



Yo, THAT KID OPENED A SEALED VICE CITY BIG BOX, THEN DROPPED THE CONTENTS ON THE FLOOR, AND JUST WENT "well f* it!" AND TOOK A PICTURE OF IT! I was laughing my ass off! I replied saying that I'll take it anyway, and proceeded to pay the item at full price. Obviously he's just a kid who doesn't know what he's doing, so I'm not mad at him, I just think it's really funny XD

That's what happens when people take my advice too literally when I ask for more pictures! Have a nice evening from Canada!  ;D

I am creating this thread to discuss how we should name the "Latin" games in the database. Those are games that have the box art in 3 languages, (English, French and Spanish), and they all have an "L" at the end of their game number (example: BLUS-31393L).

I have 5 of those games in my collection, and they're all PS3 releases. Here are pictures of them:

Watch_Dogs (Signature Edition) and FarCry 3 (Signature Edition) are already in our database, and after some digging, those latin versions appear to be the only releases of the Signature Editions, so we can ignore them for now, since we don't need to add a TLD to their name. However, Call Of Duty: World At War, FarCry Compilation and Spider-Man: Web Of Shadows already exist in US format, and the "Latin" versions that I own are not in our database. So let's discuss what official TLD we should give to those releases.

Video Game Database Discussion / PEGI Xbox 360 game... in NTSC??
« on: March 29, 2019, 06:48:31 pm »
I just made the weirdest video game find of my life. I just bought this copy of Fallout 3 - Game Of The Year Edition for Xbox 360 and it's a NTSC version... but with PEGI ratings!

*surprised pikachu*

I've never seen anything like this before. Have you guys ever seen a NTSC game with PEGI ratings before?

We have a problem. About 3/4 of our database claims that the name should be "Need For Speed: Most Wanted: A Criterion Game" and the rest of the items claim it's just "Need For Speed: Most Wanted". All of Gamefaqs.com uses the longer name, while almost all of the other smaller sources uses the shorter name.

So what the hell should we call this game? I need to know what name to give to the canadian version that I'm going to add to the database.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted
or
Need For Speed: Most Wanted: A Criterion Game

Site Feedback / Who's the idiot running the edits submissions?
« on: October 26, 2017, 12:44:08 pm »


It's bad when moderators can't make the difference between a regular and collector's edition of a game... And to further prove that this edit rejection was wrong, here's a screenshot of the SAME EXACT GAME from the SAME EXACT COUNTRY (South Korea) but for PC:



So what? Because it's on PS2 suddenly it's not a collector's edition???

Please fix this and maybe reconsider your moderating team? (and by "reconsider", I mean teach them how to read game boxes or fire them if necessary). Thank you :)

Site Feedback / Why is the picture always on the side?
« on: August 25, 2017, 05:14:38 pm »
Minutes ago I've just created a new listing for the Greatest Hits french canadian version of Tourist Trophy: The Real Riding Simulator (PS2/NA) and the first picture is always on the side on the website, even tough it's a vertical picture (confirmed by MS Paint).



You can even see in the screenshot that I tried to edit the picture after double-checking that it was vertical, but nothing changed. Can admins/moderators fix this please?

By the way I'm new to this website and this is my very first post on this forum :)
