Media blackout zones?

Will you seek out or avoid spoilers?

Re: Spoiler Free Zones?

As we're dealing with remakes, and not entirely new games, spoilers are fine to me in a way. Right now, I'm still at the stage where I want to know more about the games, but I think that might change in a few weeks/months (depending on how much info we get at once), so I can start the game without really knowing what I'll be getting into (as I did when I first played Sapphire)

But yeah, for now I don't mind more info at all yet

Re: Spoilers for OR/AS

Well, considering that the one thing I cared about most (that we're able to play in Hoenn again with updated graphics) has more or less been confirmed anyway, everything else is just extra for me at this point.

Also, Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire were the first games I ever saw spoilers for, I can't ruin tradition now! :p

Re: Spoiler Free Zones?

Said in BAK's spoiler or no spoiler thread that its near impossible to not be spoiled on a game that's been out for 11 years. The only major plot addition they could make is something from a newer area. No reason to go on a media blackout unless you've somehow never played RSE.

Re: Spoilers for OR/AS

Depends on the spoilers, I'll totally look for mechanics, 'mons and new M-evos or additions they'll do. Storyline is a totally different matter, maybe the main stuff, but knowing everything that's going to happen in the game spoils(terrible pun I know) the experience, it loses the surprise factor we all love.
It happened to me in XY and it's not pleasant, not gonna happen again.

Re: Spoilers for OR/AS

I'll probably look at whatever information I can to decide if I want OR or AS. Not like they'll be huge surprises anyway, since I've already played Sapphire :p

Re: Spoiler Free Zones?

I agree with TerraTF. The enjoyment of the game is going to come from doing things you know will happen, but in a new and updated world.

Re: Spoiler Free Zones?

I'll try to avoid storyline spoilers. I pretty much managed it in XY, although I knew who the Champion was ¬_¬.

Re: Spoilers for OR/AS

As usual, I want to see everything. It doesnt ruin my enjoyment of the games at all to see spoilers.

Re: Spoiler Free Zones?

Anything "spoilery" relating to remakes are a Late Arrival Spoiler.

The only things that could be spoilery would be some brand new plot twists or fancy new areas that Nintendo doesn't want to show before the games come out. (and I don't consider official preview material to be spoilers)

Re: Spoiler Free Zones?

If it comes from CoroCoro, The Official English Site, Serebii, or the new Pokemon TV thing, I'll consider it fair game.

If it's like XY and someone gets a leaked copy or I don't get the game when it releases, I'm avoiding all gameplays, walkthroughs, everything~ Even though I've played the originals, I don't want whatever the remakes can offer in 3D spoiled.

Re: Spoiler Free Zones?

Despite being excited and want to know more I only want to know when the actual date is (so hoping it's before the 10th of November as that's my 18th birthday! But I have a funny feeling it's going to be released on the 14th of November)
But I was so excited for X and Y I saw all just about all the Pokemon due to corocoro as there weren't that many Pokemon :/ on youtube the Team Leader of Pokemon X/Y was spoiled for me along with a quick glimpse of Zygarde (only saw the colours and that it looked like a peacock xD) but this time I want some surpirse, but youtube is always littered with images despite not even looking up spoilers as they come up in suggestions, heck even Smosh ruined the final evos of the gen 6 starters with their facebook page. So I may cut myself off from the depths of the internet... depends really, I'll just try to avoid as much as I can :/ I want that awesome feeling I did when I first started Pokemon and got Soul Silver knowing nothing about it except a few screenshots!

Re: Spoiler Free Zones?

I love spoilers. I read all of the XY leaks and still enjoyed the games. So I'll read anything regarding ORAS in the next few months. Also I have no self control when it comes to the matter.

Comes out 2nd of November. Since they are remakes i pretty much know the entire plot but i'll avoid spoilers this time around, i wanna know what they added to the game when i'm playing the game.

Re: Spoiler Free Zones?

I'll probably only go for official source and not look too much into secret leaks or anything. Even though it's just a remake, I want to be surprised by any new things they could add.

Re: Spoiler Free Zones?

If I read all the spoilers I could find with XY, an all-new game set on a new platform featuring an all-new region, I sure as hell am doing it with ORAS.

I swear i read somewhere that it said that it would come out 2nd November, must have read wrong because in any of the major sites it doesn't say that it will come out 2nd November

Re: Spoiler Free Zones?

Since I'm extremely curious about these, I'm not even going to bother trying to avoid spoilers.
