RIP: Nintendo's Satoru Iwata - 1959-2015.
So sad to hear today that Nintendo President Satoru Iwata passed away - and at the relatively young age of 55, too. Many people online are linking to the MobyGames profile of Iwata, which only exists because MobyGames contributors typed in the credits for literally hundreds of seminal Nintendo games. The site admins would like to honor Iwata-san for his vital contribution to the history of games, & thank all of you for doing so much to preserve his history - even before his sad and unexpected passing.

Sciere's 300k MobyPoints milestone!!!
This is fairly unbelievable, but veteran MobyGames contributor Sciere has just hit 300,000 points on the site... wow! This includes 2585 games, 24,000 screenshots... I could go on - here's his stats.

(Sciere also makes sure we're up to date on newer console and PC games, more than almost any other user - so MASSIVE thanks for him for this - otherwise we'd be a past-only website!)

Also, thanks to some forum notes, the other milestones must be pointed out: piltdown_man reached 90,000 points; Terok Nor reached 20,000 points; Indra reached 20,000 points, & Freeman reached 20,000 points. Congrats to all of them!
