MobyGames News

Sciere reaches 250,000 points (!) on MobyGames
Gigantic thanks and congratulations for long-time Moby contributor & admin Sciere for making it to 250,000 points - as Cavalary points out:

"Think it's probably a milestone worthy of a news post in itself, quarter of a million, nearly half again more than anyone else and still at it after all these years. Second only to FatherJack this year too, with half of the 2014 haul from credits and close to a quarter from release info... and all of it while still dealing with some administrative duties too."

Congrats, Sciere!

On this day in 1994
The classic SNES game, Earthbound, was released in Japan on this day in 1994.

It was later released in the US in June 1995, along with an unusual marketing campaign centered around the idea that "boys love smelly gross stuff".

The ads used the slogan, "This game stinks". And they had a $10 coupon with the instruction, "Cut this coupon not the cheese".

Unfortunately, said coupon expired in 1996...

State Of MobyGames - August 2014
We've done a post updating everyone on the great strides made since last December on MobyGames - and what we're hoping to do next, with your help. It's over here in our forums.

Congrats, Piltdown_Man; more platforms!
Just a quick update, since time and contributions whiz onwards - with a couple of key MobyGames updates:

- Massive congrats to piltdown_man for reaching 70,000 points - including 1006 games and 16,223 screenshots - on MobyGames! As Patrick Bregger notes in his thread: "As most approvers will know, he is not only dedicated to document shareware game collections and other obscure games (mostly PC) but also to document every single thought process and every piece of evidence in his comments to the approver." Amazing work!

- As noted by Kabushi in the new platforms thread, we've now added two brand new (and rather niche!) platforms - the Tomy Tutor/Pyuuta (info), and the Pokemon Mini (info) - which only has ten games total! So have at 'em...

New platforms & new MobyGoal (arcade!)
A couple of notable updates! Firstly, we've turned the keys of game platform adding over to veteran admin Kabushi, and he's gradually adding several that we don't have currently. Most recently, the Tatung Einstein (info) & the PC-6001 (info) are now added!

Separately, we've set up a new MobyGoal, and it's to get to 1500 arcade games - actually, we're already at 1300, so this one may be quite straightforward and we may end up extending it later, but let's see how we do! (Considering we didn't even have an arcade section 6 months ago, already getting to 1500 games is super-impressive.)

Tip Of The Day

If you're having trouble determining the exact year a game was published, check the title screen of the game, then the manual, then the fine print on the box. If those are unavailable, look at the dates of the files themselves. When all else fails, crack open a hex editor and start looking through the game code -- programmers usually jam copyright strings and other useful information in the game executable.   more tips
