This in a nutshell explains why you don't purchase these sorts of games when they're first released. Just wait a few months to buy the version that has all the DLC on the disc, and likely at a lower cost.

That's what I plan to do for ARKHAM ORIGINS. That should be out just about the time the last story DLC is released. Just what happened with ARKHAM CITY.

@shadowx: That's like calling Wednesday. They were obviously going to do a DLC version.

Name Change & Alias

Shuisui, I accidental misspelled the name of this sword. It should be "Shusui"

  • Shuusui (another way of spelling the sword's name)

@razzatazz:

On the topic of how things work on AV, I'm pretty sure I'm a better source than most. Considering I'm not only a mod there, but I also write regular articles for the sire's front news page.

You should try these guide bars we add yto anime pages on AV and see how easy they make navigating a large series.

A CV version would be different since many cartoons and shows don't follow arcs. Those could say "Season 1", ect.

The ribbon only shows you the list of episodes within the first few in relation to that episode.

What I'm suggesting would help guide users through not just all the episodes in that season, but then help quick browsing through the the seasons(or arcs). What about series that have hundreds of episodes and a number of seasons, such as STAR TREK and X-FILES.

@pikahyper:

How could a table header that's barely a quarter of an inch take up too much space? I think you may be misunderstanding what I'm suggesting. I'm talking about what is at the top of the episode page in the picture I posted. The small portion where it says Punk Hazard and has all the episode numbers linked.

I also haven't been on Screened since Rorie left. I haven't the foggiest what you're talking about.

@razzatazz: @pikahyper:

What does it matter the amount of points earned for it? It's incredibly convenient for navigating and entire season from a single page.

With that table guide at the top, you can navigate every episode in a season/arc. I can also navigate the story arcs in order.

Yes, there are story arc pages in the wiki, but that doesn't always tell you which arc happened before or after. They also don't appear to link to series. Anime also often has filler arcs, which by site rules wouldn't be allowed. Not to mention so few comic shows ever follows arcs from comics. Then there are shows such as X-FILES or SMALLVILLE. This table guide at the top of each episode page could guide readers through the seasons.

@pikahyper: @razzatazz:

This is just a suggestion for the episode pages, but on Anime Vice we started adding a table header with links to each episode within an arc/season. It makes it really fast and easy to browse through an entire series. It's especially helpful for going through larger series.

Here's a picture example from ONE PIECE Ep. 613.

You can see the name of the arc at the top "Punk Hazard". That's the most recent arc. The arrows to the left and right are used to scroll through the various arcs. By hitting that arrow to the left of the arc name, I can quickly go to the first episode of the arc that happened before this one. With the linked numbers below, I can very quickly get to any episode that appears within the Punk Hazard arc.

Something such as this might be helpful in this new series format. Though, that would probably go with seasons instead of arc names for most series.

I was unsure about this when we first started adding it, but I've really found it helpful.

Orrr ...you could do what I plan to do. Wait a couple months for the game-of-the-year edition that will have ALL this on the disc and at a lower initial cost. I got fed up after ARKHAM CITY had their DLC version released a few months later. I really want to play this, but I can wait.

@pikahyper:

I can understand that. My internet was down most of the day for some reason, but I was able to complete the episode lists for about five of the series I've added. I also started in on ONE PIECE. I'm going to take that by story arcs, since it's so large.
