LBA on GOG Promotion thread!
I think we should start trying to get the LBA/GoG news premoted on as many sites as possible.
I suggested it to Joystiq yesterday and either because of that, or chance, it paid of;

What other sites should we premote it on? !
Lets get cracking.

I'll edit this post to keep track of what ones are done :)




(we should inform these websites LBA is for sale on GoG)

Joystiq - done
RPS - done
Kotaku - [one message sent by Darkflame]
(nothing yet, perhapes someone else should send a message and mention their old artical here. "Seeing as you already reported on LBA here, purhapes you might like to know...")
Power Unlimited - [one message sent by Jesse]
IGN - [messages sent by Darkflame,StreGGy]
PCGamer - [one message sent by MaNgEDamN & Darkflame] - [no message sent]
EDGE - [one message sent by Darkflame]
JeuxVideo - done [one message sent by ras maxim] - [one message sent by ras maxim] - [one message sent by Darkflame - I suggested LBA as one of a 'people that like Zelda might like this' feature] [one message sent by Renesans]

Youtube and Video premotions:

Trailers for LBA1 (we have trailers from....nobody yet),
PMing existing LBA videos on youtube and asking them to premote Gogs release,(no links yet

Other video sites:, Dailymotion (french, so a good target),

ART-Related Premotion:

ART related premotion handeled here.

Social stuff:

Finaly, make sure you are all posting it on whatever social network systems you use! (Facebook, G+, etc)
Also, on any other forums your active on, you could put a link in your sig.


Green = done. They have a artical/post about it.
Orange = At least one MBN member has sent a message, (preferably a few)
Red = No message sent yet just a suggestion to cover this media source.

Kotaku maybe? I know they've had a few LBA-related posts in the past. Nice job by the way.

Neko 2011-10-12 19:53

power unlimited?

MaNgEDamN 2011-10-12 21:16

We should definitely try to get PCGamer to talk about it and if they do, then we are talking...

To send a message to PCGamer:
To: [email address]
Subject: Story Submitted via PC

They expect you to make a story about it but I'm not really good at that so Ill let you guys handle it :D

For germany maybe #Musik ( which they call the biggest european internetradio. they often write reports about games and sometimes about good old games too.

Jasiek 2011-10-12 22:23

the escapist?

Get Yahtzee to review it ;).

elmuerte 2011-10-12 23:34

RPS already had it at launch:

Darkflame 2011-10-12 23:38

Well, he is aware of it, as he mentioned it at the end of the Little Big Planet review.

Would be good for the attention if he did.
Not sure he could be perswaded too if he wasnt already.

Darkflame 2011-10-13 15:31

Ok, lets start sending messages! :)

Polaris 2011-10-13 17:43

I think FanLBA has an account there.

edit : there's already an article :

Darkflame 2011-10-13 17:54

good good. Lots still to go though :)

MaNgEDamN 2011-10-13 18:20

I sent a message to PCGamer, but I doubt they will react to just one ^^

Darkflame 2011-10-13 18:49

True, but ones a start. :)

Neko 2011-10-13 19:07

I sent one to PU :)

morshem 2011-10-13 19:09

You can also here sites that reported it.

Darkflame 2011-10-14 17:38

hmz...nothing on IGN or Kotaku yet.

I'm supprised Kotaku hasnt mentioned it, as they had an earlier LBA news item awhile back.

Neko 2011-10-15 20:26

come one people, a bit more fire. This is our chance to show that we are worth a lba3. Let's buy this game massively and promote it massively.
We've been standing idle for so long and this is our chance! :)

Darkflame 2011-10-15 20:36


Lets get all the sites we can think of posted too!
Lets get artworks on gallerys!
Videos on youtube(s)!
Music on...stuff!

Lets make LBA unescapeable!

Neko 2011-10-15 20:39

I posted it on facebook, twitter, hyves.

How to social network this?

#lba should be ours.

Neko 2011-10-15 20:48

how about putting the re-release on wiki ?

Darkflame 2011-10-15 21:10

Very good idea.


I posted it on facebook, twitter, hyves.

I did Facebook and Google+, but yes, everyone should social network it in whatever the have themselves.

I think the artwork a good idea, spreading some good drawings suporting the LBA Cause!
I'll try to do some sketch's when I get some free time:D

morshem 2011-10-15 21:19

Actually, the LBA article on Wikipedia was already updated by an anonymous user with this information a few days ago.

Neko 2011-10-15 21:23

I did the dutch version.

They should put the rerelease in it's own headline/article space. Now you can hardly see it.

Kobold 2011-10-15 22:05

Let's make a trailer video and post it on all our YouTube channels!
