MobyGames News

New(ish!) on MobyGames - the Mainframe platform.


Much like our Arcade platform, it's taken MobyGames a long time to add Mainframe games as a platform because, well, it's not one particular hardware configuration - rather a set of unique games on unique early computer hardware.

But the platform is here now, thanks to help from Kabushi & others, and already has 50+ well-researched entries going back as far as 1951 (!) - almost all added by excellent MobyGames contributor Vedder. Thanks again to all involved.

New taskforce: Description adding/improvement.
There's been some rumblings - not entirely incorrectly - in recent days that although we're catching up a LOT on MobyGames thanks to our new 'entry helper', there are some Steam/PSN/etc. store descriptions that don't reflect games properly.

The best example is probably Stephen's Sausage Roll, which we've now added a basic description for. But if there are others that don't describe the basic gameplay in an understandable way, please add them to this thread and we'll make descriptions for them. Thanks again.

Notable milestones - Kabushi & MAT!
Just a couple of super-neat milestones. Firstly, it looks like veteran MobyGames contributor Kabushi sneaked past Unicorn Lynx to make the all-time #2 spot on our contributor list with 178,001 points, wow, thanks to his steady contributions on many retro platforms. Congrats to him!

Secondly, MAT who is in 6th place overall, just bested 150,000 points for the first time, another spectacular result - lots of Japanese covers and screens in here. Congrats to both - and if you have spotted other milestones, please put them in the comments on this post :)

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!

Tip Of The Day

Scan cover art in a high resolution and make sure that the scans are completely straight, for the covers themselves as well as the game discs. Scan the art directly against the glass, out of the keep case or jewel case, as this will give a sharper image. Of course, when you keep your games sealed or shrinkwrapped, we make an exception.   more tips
