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 :)
