Dictionary for System Wars Users
This list may change from time to time as System Wars changes with everythread posted. However, currently known words include:
~HYPE (noun) word used to describe the expected results. Example: The hype on that game is AAA ( for the A's, see later part of survial guide)
~SERIES (adj) coined word for "serious" Example: Are you for real? I'm dead series.
If your reading this blog, please help me with more words used in System Wars, I'm really drawing a blank at the moment.
Explaining the A's
~AAAA (or AAAAE) - this is a game that scores a perfect 10 in the review only found on Gamespot. com, unless specified by the post.
~AAA (or AAAE) - this is a game which scores a 9.0 or 9.5 in the review only found on Gamespot.com, unless specified by the post
~AA (or AAE) - this is a game which scores a 8.0 or 8.5 in the review only found on Gamespot.com, unless specified by the post
~A (or AE) - this is a game which scores a 7.0 or 7.5 in the review only found on Gamespot.com, unless specified by the post
This is the proper way to hype a game. If you believe a game is going to get an 8.5, then you hype it as an AA game. It may also be an AAE game which means it will be exclusive, which will come up next.
The Rules of Exclusivity
This may seem really tricky so I will try to break it down for you as much as possible. Please be aware though, that these rules change from poster to poster, so just try to form to them. However, these rules are what I believe are the most fair and most descriptive rules.
1. A game found on only 1 system is exclusive. (This means it is only found on one system. For example, if it is found on the PS3, and if it appears on the PC, PS2, Xbox360, Wii, DS, or PSP, it loses its rights of being called exclusive)
2. A game is a called exclusive until the relase of the same game on another console. From the announcement of the game coming to another system until the game actually releases on said second system, the game is called a time exclusive. (To explain, lets say this really great game came out on the Xbox360 in December. It would be called exclusive. Now March comes, and they announce it for the PS3 coming in July. It is then called a timed exclusive. Once it releases on the PS3 in July, it loses its rights of ever being called an exclusive.)
3. Games found on two or more systems are called multiplats. This is always true. It can never be called exclusive, unless it follows under the next rule.
4. Games found on systems made by the same company are called ___ exclusives (fill in the name with the name of the founding company. )
~ If it is only found on the Xbox and Xbox360, it is called a Microsoft Exclusive.
~ If it is only found on the PS2, PS3, and PSP, it is called a Sony Exclusive.
~If it is only found on the Wii or DS, it is called a Nintendo Exclusive.
5. The last rule. Games found on both the PC and the Xbox360 can NEVER be called Microsoft exclusives. (This is kind of obvious. Although it may be true that they are both run on systems that were developed by Microsoft, there are Sony computers. And since Sony is also a competitor, it therefore loses rights to be called exclusive.)
More to come in later posts.
Please feel free to add whatever you want, and correct any mistakes I make. If you don't agree with something, just give me a holler, and I will try to work it out. I'm hoping to make this into an eventual thread.
