Default Soft launched games thread?

Hey I'm hoping I'm in the right portion of the site, but I think it would be helpful to have a section heading in the forums for soft launched games, kind of like the one for upcoming, so we can keep track of soft launches more easily. If there's already something I'm missing I'd be glad to know, I like playing soft launches. Just suggesting something I think would be convienent.

I dont think theres tons of soft launched game threads to justify it really. Everyone (or a mod) puts Soft Launch at the start of the thread so people know its not worldwide when they are out.

But i dont see that many soft launches to justify a new section ?

Soft launch or the countries in caps are usually at the start in the thread title so I've never ever found myself mixed up, I'm using the app though, dunno if it appears differently on the browser.

I kinda agree that there could be some way to figure out soft releases that go to global releases. How can we tell?

Can a tag global launch be added to games for a day of global launch?

If there was a poll soliciting my opinion; I'd select the option to leave soft launch designation as is.

How do we tell when soft releases turn global? Shouldn't there be a global tag for a day or two?

It's not a hard and fast rule, but about half the moderators I've seen change the title to mention [worldwide launch] after a game is let loose.

At the moment it depends on who changes it. Generally speaking, temporary titles are a huge pain in the bahookie so a one-time removal of the soft-launch tags is what you see.

Yeah, can see it might be a little more work, but I am sure a [worldwide launch] tag would be awesome for a day or two if possible.

Appreciate the help though!

[Soft Launch - This post is only intended for Canadian and Northern European residents... please disregard if otherwise]

Is there any truth to the rumors that EchoSeven ceased to be a person when he became one with the Touch Arcade mainframe? Touch Arcade, I'm on to you!
