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.

MobyGames Twitter feed - cover ideas wanted!
Now that our covers are unwatermarked, there's never been a better time to show off some of the amazing video game cover art scanned by MobyGames members. And that's just what is happening at the MobyGames Twitter feed, which is updated daily with new pics. It's actually doing pretty well, if you look at the number of retweets and favorites for each post.

When we started this, we asked MobyGames Approvers for some cover picks, and now we'd like your help! Please comment on this post and pick some of your favorite cover art on the site, and we'll gradually flow it onto Twitter (and Facebook/Google+, as time permits!)

RIP: Nintendo's Satoru Iwata - 1959-2015.
So sad to hear today that Nintendo President Satoru Iwata passed away - and at the relatively young age of 55, too. Many people online are linking to the MobyGames profile of Iwata, which only exists because MobyGames contributors typed in the credits for literally hundreds of seminal Nintendo games. The site admins would like to honor Iwata-san for his vital contribution to the history of games, & thank all of you for doing so much to preserve his history - even before his sad and unexpected passing.

Sciere's 300k MobyPoints milestone!!!
This is fairly unbelievable, but veteran MobyGames contributor Sciere has just hit 300,000 points on the site... wow! This includes 2585 games, 24,000 screenshots... I could go on - here's his stats.

(Sciere also makes sure we're up to date on newer console and PC games, more than almost any other user - so MASSIVE thanks for him for this - otherwise we'd be a past-only website!)

Also, thanks to some forum notes, the other milestones must be pointed out: piltdown_man reached 90,000 points; Terok Nor reached 20,000 points; Indra reached 20,000 points, & Freeman reached 20,000 points. Congrats to all of them!

Tip Of The Day

Early games had such simple graphics that screenshots were not effective in marketing the game, so conceptual illustrations were used instead. For an example of this, take a look at boxes from IBM or Funtastic games--then compare them to their screenshots. (This is not to say that Funtastic and IBM games aren't fun--they are--we're just using them as an example.)   more tips
