How long does this site exists? I've never noticed it before, yet every single game I look up there has a description copied from MobyGames.
They copied my SNK Arcade Classics description! And BADLY at that! They seem to index text and nothing else, so they're probably making money with the ads. Bastards!
Unbelievable. Can we sue them?

Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery my butt !
Haha! I even found some of my obscure japanese Ps1 game submissions in there. The site design leaves a lot to be desired however...
Wayback machine does not have anything from this site, but note that Material typically becomes available here 6 months after collection so it is probably not very old.
The domain seems to be owned by Spesoft who ironically claim this on the front page: We are a company that finds original solutions for our customer's needs, not pre-packaged products.
It looks like one of those placeholder websites you find when you misspell what you're actually looking for....no Dos or windows that I can find...weird...what a bunch of chodes.
The site is online since February. I've found it in the Spesoft news archive.
So THAT'S why the name sounded so damn familiar! These are the people who make GameEX, a fairly popular frontend for MAME and other similar emulators! That would explain why it has arcade and other consoles listed.
What a douchebag. I'm tempted to raise hell at some MAME forums, but I'll let the site admins deal with that jerk.
