Okay, you can all stop submitting descriptions for SimTower now. :-) Big thanks to those who submitted theirs in the last hour.

We passed the 1700-game mark with brickbat's entry of Operation: Inner Space, a unique game that lets you do battle against your own hard drive.

Sorry for the lack of approvals recently, but Brian is out on a small vacation (to Amsterdam -- lucky bastard!) and I've been very sick for the past two days.

It pains me to do this, but it's part of my job to report bad news: We've had to change several entries back to "Work In Progress" because we've learned that the description, screenshots, and other info in some recently-submitted entries was copied from other websites with neither permission nor attribution. (Entries changed back into "Work In Progress" status can be edited and re-submitted via the Add Game link on the main page.)

To those people: Guys, you can't just copy Abandonware web pages and expect us not to know. We appreciate the desire to help, but MobyGames' informal motto has always been Quality over Quantity, and I'm sure we all appreciate that, right?

Don't miss Ray Soderlund's review of Shogun: Total War -- it's very thorough and covers most aspects of the game well, with a warning to real-time strategy lovers.

Hey, anyone got a better cover for Wolfenstein 3D? The one we have on file stinks.

We've been so busy approving new entries to the database that we missed the fact that John Morales, a new MobyUser, contributed our 1600th game entry with Sammy Sosa High Heat Baseball 2001. Congrats!

I love my job. I really do. Otherwise, how else would I be able to view information on all four InfoComics in a single location?

Yes, today has been a good day. A good day indeed.

How's that for a game description, eh?

Brian is out on vacation and I need a bit of a rest, so approvals will be non-existant tonight as I catch up on lost sleep. (Just an FYI to those who have submitted entries and are wondering when they'll be approved).

It will be worth the wait for approvals to start up again Tuesday or Wednesday -- there's a lot of classics and obscure releases in the queue. Check the Recent Entries link in the left-hand column of this page perodically to keep track of what's new.

Just in case it wasn't clear: We are, for the time being, a PC-only database. We've had a flurry of new submissions, and while we appreciate help, we've had to reject some well-intentioned entries because they were games for non-PC platforms.

Brian and I have talked about going multi-platform in the past. If/When we do, classic 8-bit platforms like the Apple II, C64, and others will definitely be considered as platforms to be supported. But for right now, please -- PC only!

Poor David Wolf! Since becoming the featured game of the week 5 days ago, he's been awaiting some ratings to see how people think of him. But there's only one more day left in the coveted Game of the Week slot, and poor David still only has one rating! Won't you take pity on poor Dynamix and rate David Wolf: Secret Agent? It would make a certain Peregrine agent very happy...

We've been so busy approving entries to the database and planning new features that we completely missed June 13th! What happened on June 13th, you ask? That's the day that the July 2000 issue of PC Gamer magazine (CDROM edition) hit the newsstands, and the cover story, feature article, and included CDROM is completely dedicated to classic PC games! Amongst the pages, you'll find a small guide on getting classic games running under Windows, feature articles on how older games influenced newer ones, and interviews with game designers. The CDROM is packed with full versions of games like Alone in the Dark, Ultima 1, Terminal Velocity, and others.

And, oh yeah -- MobyGames is mentioned in a sidebar. :-)

So, to all of our new visitors referred here from PC Gamer, welcome! Grab a cool one and take a look around.

Well, WizardX stepped up to the plate and quickly submitted descriptions for all the Space Quest games. Fast! But just because he did it doesn't mean that you can't, so if you want to write a better (objective!) one, feel free and snag some points.

Just a reminder: Descriptions are supposed to be objective (no opinions, "this sucks", etc.). We've been seeing some subjective descriptions recently and had to submit them back to the author for editing.

You know, it just dawned on me that our entries for the Space Quest games could use some better descriptions. Anyone want to oblige?

Joe Waters added our 1500th game entry with the landmark game BFRIS Zero Gravity Fighter Combat. Why landmark? Take a gander at the game entry and see for yourself.

Digger Remastered champion Andrew Jenner forwarded me a URL that I think all MobyGames users can get a kick out of, which I can best sum up as trials of a videogame character. It's pretty funny to those in the know; check it out.

Two mini-huge news items today:

Brian is back! At one point on his trip, he clocked 160 miles in one day. Not too shabby (and now neither is he ;-)

Also, the July 2000 issue of PC Gamer is out, and it's a doozy: It's more-or-less dedicated to classic games for the PC. And guess who has a mention in the magazine? Why, MobyGames, of course. Serendipity, my friends!

Welcome, PC Gamer readers!
