MobyGames News

MobyGames is accelerating!
Just a quick joyful update, since CalaisianMindthief pointed out on the forums that we've gone from 76,000 games (strictly speaking, 'game SKUs' - each individual platforms release counts!) on Jan. 1st 2014 to 88,000 today - adding 12,000+ game entries in under 10 months!

This even compares very positively to my searches of the Wayback Machine for the period before the revitalized community under 'new management'. There were 62,000 SKUs at the end of 2011.

So basically that's: 14,000 SKUs added in _all_ of 2012 and 2013, but 12,000 SKUs and counting added in 2014 so far! Super impressive, and thanks to _all_ who added games and other content so far in 2014.

[Also notable: we've gone from 520,000 screenshots at the end of last year to 630,000 screenshows now, another super impressive stat, esp. given every single one was hand-picked by a user!]

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...

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...

Tip Of The Day

In the past, we used to accept the inside cover of a box as a single scan. As covers are downscaled to a width of 640 pixels for viewing, this makes it hard to read the text. Therefore, the inside covers of box scans are now split into separate images, with a comment like "Left Flap" and "Right Flap". Many covers on the site still have the inside cover as a single item, feel free to replace those.   more tips
