We were without bandwidth for two periods of three hours each yesterday afternoon and evening. Send all love letters to our service provider :-)

Titan A.E., Don Bluth's newest animated film, did so poorly at the box office that it's already at the cheapie theaters. (Don Bluth is the ex-Disney animator responsible for the Dragon's Lair and Space Ace animated games, one of the very first interactive movie-style games.) It's worth seeing. Gamers in the USA can use moviefone.com to check theaters and showtimes; gamers overseas, watch for it!

Added much information to our entry on Looking Glass Studios, including their demise.

In researching it, I found the excellent, funny, and slightly political computer game comics called The Polymer City Chronicals. Way cool; check them out.

I must have missed the closing of Psygnosis. Does anyone have specific details of what happened?

My, how entries fly! Arnaldo 'ReviewGames.Com' Carvalho put us into the 1900-entry range with an appropriately historic title: The Roberta Williams Anthology.

For being one of the single most influencial computer games ever produced, our description of Elite is a bit basic. Without getting too subjective (opinionated, etc.), is anyone willing to contribute an additional description for it?

Bastion blew past our 1800-entry mark with Axis & Allies a couple of days ago. Way to go Bastion!

While I've been in denial about it for a couple of days, I thought I should mention that I have been dethroned from the spot of Top Contributor by MAT, a credits-entering maniac.

Am I mad? Hell no -- I'm ecstatic! It shows that MobyGames is a success!

Yes, we're still alive. After our longest and most embarrasing outage to date, we're happy to report that all is well, no data was lost, and we are taking steps to ensure that this type of outage never happens again.

Happy 4th of July holiday to those living in the USA. Will D. was kind enough to submit an entry -- Sons of Liberty -- just for the occaision.

Okay; I'm back, so expect some approvals tonight.

Also: I just wanted to reassure everyone that when you sent a custom addition or correction to [email protected], it does NOT get lost -- it gets stored in a queue where it sits until we do a major database update. Major updates happen about once a month, so don't think we're ignoring you. :)

As MobyGames matures, we plan on adding several features that let you contribute directly to the approval queue instead of mailing us, like developer bios (actual developers have been asking us for this -- woohoo!), advertising blurbs, and technical attributes. Stay tuned...
