MobyGames News

Xbox Live Indie Games - the Moby-archiving!
Since news spread that the Xbox 360's Xbox Live Indie Games service is gradually closing - with no new games allowed from Sept. 2016 and the service closed in Sept. 2017. Due to the online nature of the store, there's obviously some danger that info on these games will be permanently lost.

Luckily, one of our top contributors, Patrick Bregger, has shot out of the gate like a rocket, and dedicated himself to archiving screenshots and info from _every single_ XBLIG game. Right now he's going backwards from Z, and has added a couple of hundred games to our previous total - there's now nearly 400 up there.

We salute his fortitude to get through all the Zombie games, for starters - there are nearly 100, including Zombie Sausages 2, Zombie Cow-Milking, and the actually pretty good Zombie Accountant.

We wanted to highlight this for two reasons - one, to thank Patrick PROFUSELY, because these synopses, screenshots, and credits are great, & just don't exist anywhere else. And secondly, he definitely needs some help - so if anyone would like to message him or post in this thread, that's be great!

MobyGames - text-only covers now accepted!
Along with the recent lifting of the exception on accepting multiple discs/diskettes with the same artwork and different disc numbers, our exception on accepting text-only covers has been lifted as well.

Below are a couple of sample covers which we had on file as accepted. This just shows the inconsistency when it comes to such things. (It was hard to say which is irrelevant as text-only, and which text is more important or if some minor graphics were included so it can be accepted.)

This was the last barrier to accepting the full cover set of actual covers. NOTE: we still do not accept manual scans, except the cover page - and this only in cases when manual serves as a front cover as well (most commonly found in jewel case packages).

MobyGames Call For Help - coders, contributors!
As we continue to add original credits, screenshots, info, and cross-linked info on the history of video games daily, MobyGames needs your help to expand! In particular, we need aid in two areas:

1. Coders who can understand Perl, can help! We're still stymied in accomplishing a lot of bug fixes and new features due to lack of coding help. If you know Perl and can volunteer some time to get up to speed on our codebase, we would be _very_ appreciative. Please message Simon if you can help out.

2. Contributors to underdocumented historic platforms! Check out this forums thread, but we think the Apple II, ZX Spectrum, Arcade, TRS-80, & TI-99/4A are all missing a LOT of releases. In addition, platforms like GBC, GBA, DS and Wii are missing a number of licensed & more 'minor' releases - of course, no games are minor in the end. So if you can help out and could specialize in any of these platforms - please contribute now - appreciated!

MobyGames - media scan rules change!
Here's a new rule! For media scans for games that were on two or more floppy disks, CDs, or DVDs, MobyGames' policy was always EITHER to accept all media if they have different art or text (marking them Disc 1, Disc 2, Disc 3, etc) OR accept only one media if it only differed in number, marking it as Disc 1/N.

Now, the embargo has been lifted, and there is no need for comments such as "Disc 1/N" because all magnetic disks or optical discs are accepted, even if they differ only in number.

From now on, something like this is welcomed when you submit cover scans:

Of course, you can still scan as much or little as you like when you submit scans - every bit helps! Hope this helps when submitting, and thanks to all submitters.

User milestones - MAT, Karsa & friends!
We're so happy to see MobyGames contributors blast through some new milestones, and time to honor them here. (Thx to Cavalary/Karsa for the tips!)

Firstly, MAT gets an entire paragraph, because he just hit 100,000 MobyPoints - the 7th person in our history to do that! Congrats, & infinithanks to him...

In addition, Karsa Orlong is now officially in the all-time Top 10 for contributions, Picard just hit 30,000 total points, and Infernos just topped 10,000 and is now #80 overall. Please keep the amazing work coming...

And one final note, as spotted by Kabushi - MobyGames now has over 3 million individual 'lines' of credits, all entered by our amazing contributors! Wow.
