FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Did You Spoil Gears of War 3? Epic Games Is Watching You.

Posted on Monday, August 15 @ 09:11:16 PST by


Hide your kids, hide your wife, hide your spoiler videos, 'cuz Epic is gonna get'chu.

Epic Games has already promised "repercussions" for anyone who spoils Gears of War 3, and the leaked videos of the campaign from the pre-release version of the game has now forced them into a rampaging tizzy and to treat those people like the goddamn Locust. Executive Producer Rod Fergusson told Edge magazine:

We're extremely diligent about getting that stuff taken down and issued a call to fans to not perpetuate it... and just keeping track of those who do. I don't think everybody's aware of the potential repercussions of those types of actions.

He then (somewhat) clarified what he meant in a statement to Eurogamer:

We have a banning system built into our stuff so we can go in and identify certain people. Some people aren't smart about what they do. They'll be disappointed on 20th September when they can't get in and can't play. They may be banned.

[They are] going against everything we're trying to accomplish. We had one of my video chats and somebody went into the chat room and tried to yell all caps spoilers throughout the chat room to try to ruin the experience for the thousand people who were watching me. It's that kind of stuff that just drives me crazy.

If you don't value this community, you don't value this experience, then we don't value you. I'd rather pick that one bad apple out of the pool so everybody else can have a better time.

I'm not sure what kind of "stuff" Rod is talking about, but it makes me think they have a black list of suspects and a lot of banning to do.
