New Alpha feature: MobyGames has video!


Some of you may have spotted that games such as RiME now have - shock, horror - an official launch/release video embedded on their page! Yes, it's only taken us until 2017 to enter the world of moving images, please don't mock us :P (Some other examples: Grand Theft Auto V, Beavis & Butt-Head In Virtual Stupidity, haha!)

This is an Alpha roll-out of a feature that will be available to all in the next few months, whenever you can start submitting via our new 'Phoenix' version of the website. ('Entry helper' is another Phoenix feature that is already available to all - we've been making great progress of late.)

This new video adding feature - intended specifically for official videos that include gameplay of the title - is now accessible on a contributor by contributor basis. If you're a regular contributor who'd like to get access to it and add videos, please PM me & I'll give you specific instructions and rules. (BTW, we are using embedded YouTube videos, but intend to archive any linked-to videos to our Archive.org collection over time to ensure they don't get lost due to changing accounts or policies.)

Another milestone - 200,000 promo images!
Just a note that, according to the MobyGames Stats page, we have just passed 200,000 promotional images - congrats to all, and thanks to all contributors who made this possible.

Of course, many of these are automatically added when the 'entry helper' is used. (This is super useful if the websites they are grabbed from ever go away.) But there's also a lot of custom promo image work - for example, from Mr Flibble, who is adding all kinds of neat old PC game screenshots, among other things! And roll on, 300k images!

Excellent list of missing MobyGames arcade titles!
As many of you probably know, 'arcade' was only added as a platform to MobyGames relatively recently (in 2014!) compared to most other platforms. As a result, although we've added 1900 games, the majority are titles we already had in the database as arcade conversions.

Luckily, contributor JMM has created a giant MobyGames/MAME comparison spreadsheet and found the 2,700 games (!) we are missing on arcade.

If you're adding them, feel free to make your description brief (2 or 3 paragraphs) but descriptive, and it would be great to get MAME screenshots for many of them - but maybe you can all split up & some people can add, with others adding screenshots? (There may be a more formal goal on this when the PlayStation goal is done at the end of May!)

REMINDER: Our PlayStation game adding contest ends May 31st


As you may recall, we're running a contest for adding missing PlayStation games which'll run through the end of May. The person who adds the most PlayStation games - with a bonus for adding other formats - will win a $100 Amazon gift card.

Looks like all of the PS4 games in the original spreadsheet were completed, but there's still likely a bunch of PlayStation Vita (and some PS3/PS2) titles that you could use the 'entry helper' on - or do new entries from scratch - if you want to keep playing along! (And there's a few PS4 games not on the list too.) Good luck...

Congrats - jaXen (50k points!), Rainer S. (top covers contrib!)
Just a quick note, since somebody in the MobyGames Discord pointed out that jaXen has just reached 50,000 MobyPoints, a super-impressive total, given that he's been with us since 2004 & has accelerated his contributions recently. (This also puts him into the Top 30 all-time contributors.) Congrats to him!

In semi-related news, it seems that Rainer S. recently became the top all-time game cover art contributor, with 51,624 total points from covers alone. We've been having some very strong cover-adding contributors in recent months - with Charly 2.0 also looking like he will get to 50,000 points JUST from covers at some point if he keeps up his current pace. Thanks to both of them!

Tip Of The Day

You can contribute technical details and platform-specific information to existing entries by entering the Add Game Wizard. Just enter the title of the game already in the database (make sure it's exact!) and you'll be whisked to a special screen where you can contribute platform and technical attributes. Again, make sure the title is exactly the same as the title in the database, otherwise you'll be adding a duplicate entry that we'll have to reject in the interest of keeping the database clean and consistent.   more tips
