Upcoming Releases Calendar

Hey guys, I've just been experimenting with some of our unused or potential entirely new forum features, and the calendar came to mind. The calendar feature has always been there, but it was never utilized for anything. So randomly the idea came to me that perhaps the calendar could highlight the release dates of some upcoming titles throughout the year.

I went ahead and added in some of the bigger games for the rest of the year as well as some games that interest me specifically. Since we've never really used the feature I'm not entirely sure, but I am assuming that you can all add to the calendar regardless of being a moderator and what-not. If that is the case, please feel free to add any games I missed that interest YOU specifically, that way the included releases dates can be as comprehensive and catered to the community as possible (of course given that it does not allow you to edit the calendar for whatever reason, you can just post the games you want included on this topic and I will add them in for you). I could have just added every release for the rest of the year, but at that point it would be pretty cluttered and also not personalized at all. I figure it could be useful if you want to hop on just to see what games are on the horizon for any given day, and it doesn't require too much activity to still be useful.

So I guess a few things

I didn't actually add anything but there is a add activity button and I can click on it so confirm other people can use it.

I would recommend that we don't go more than 2-3 months in advance. With all the delays I kind of feel like anymore than 3 mouths and there is a 50/50 chance that it end up being a different release date.

I was fairly sure that person 5 comes out next year and in the West it does. It looks like Sept 15 is the Jap release date

Ah, yeah, you're right. I was just going through Wikipedia's lists and it was on there under September 15 so I put it on there, I haven't actually been keeping up with it.

I like this idea. I too never realized or utilized the calendar. Even after this I had to look for the calendar link.

You didn't need to worry about clicking the Calendar link at the top, there is an "Upcoming Releases" forum section which automatically links to it.
