Neat use of MobyGames API for Star Wars game article...
As you may know, we've opened up MobyGames' data in an API for not-for-profit use (and commercial use under certain circumstances - PM me either way!), and we've had 30+ people sign up for API access so far.

One of the earliest fruits of the API usage is this post about Star Wars game history by Cheeseness, which uses MobyGames data to create an interactive timeline of the myriad of Star Wars games out there. Cool, huh? We hope to see more cool uses like this over time...

(Incidentally, we now know there's a few missing Star Wars games on MobyGames, particularly mobile/browser titles, if anyone wants to have a go at adding them!)

Adding Switch as a platform, Nintendo.com as an 'entry helper' source.


Having originally been available purely for PSN (PlayStation Store), iOS (iTunes) & Steam (PC/Mac/Linux), we're happy to announce that you can now use Nintendo.com as a source for our 'entry helper'.

This means that if you visit our New Game Wizard, you will be able to enter the URL for any game with info on Nintendo.com - including Wii U, Wii, DS, and 3DS formats - and it'll automatically grab the 'ad blurb', digital cover, screenshots, and developer/publisher where possible. Hopefully we can fill in some gaps on Nintendo platforms with this simple method!

Along the same lines, just wanted to confirm that this we've added the Nintendo Switch as a game platform and are rapidly adding the games released for it so far, if you'd like to help out there, too.

MobyGames - missing PlayStation games contest with $ prize.
Now that we've added the 'entry helper' tool here at MobyGames, we're in great shape to use it to catch up on some of the console games we're missing info on.

So we're announcing a contest for adding missing PlayStation games which'll run through the end of May. The person who adds the most PlayStation games - with a bonus for adding other formats - will win a $100 Amazon gift card. (We know you don't do this for the money, but we thought it'd be fun!)

An initial list of missing U.S. PS4 games (about 250+!) is available here, so you can get to work straight away. Please fill out detailed genre info, full developer/publisher info, then mark it off in the spreadsheet - and you get 2x the credit if you add the other platforms for these games at the same time!

As we get going, we may compile similar lists for PlayStation Vita and other platforms - if you're adding games for Sony platforms beyond PS4 or non-U.S. PS4 games, feel free to add them into the Google Doc yourself. Other questions welcome. We're planning to use the missing games as a basis to expand our coverage of credits (in particular!), promo art, etc & will have some more plans in that direction soon.

Credits help wanted - YouTube vids/screenshots permitted!


While we have some amazing contributors entering game credits (one of the most important parts of MobyGames' data!), we're looking for more. We wanted to highlight this, especially now we're adding a lot of interesting PSN console and Steam PC games as part of our 'game helper' functionality.

We particularly wanted to confirm an unwritten rule - that you can link to a YouTube video for checking/proof when submitting your credits. (EDIT: you can grab screenshots easily from YouTube videos, which we would prefer.) Our standards have been amended as follows:

"Although not mandatory, EITHER screengrabbed in-game screenshots/scanned manual credits OR a link to a YouTube video with the credits captured are greatly encouraged. If you're using YouTube credits uploaded by others, please use this FAQ to grab screenshots from it and upload. This will help approvers verify and double check your credit submissions for possible human error factors (typos, missing developer names, etc.) and make the approval process much faster."

[NOTE: Though in the future, we may allow developers to enter their own credits individually, right now contributors need to enter the game's entire credits for it to be accepted.]

'Entry helper' now live for Steam, PSN, iOS for all contributors!
Now available to all, the 'entry helper' allows any MobyGames contributor to add a game by linking to its store page (Steam, PSN, iOS) when you go to 'Add New Game'. From there, we grab the release date(s), digital cover, promotional screenshots, developer and publisher where possible, and the 'ad blurb' (store's description of the game.)

Some notes for those using it for the first time:

-The 'entry helper' only works for adding games from scratch. Please try to check quickly to see if the game was released for other platforms & add those too, if you can. (Reminder: please provide the proof URL in the comments on your submission!)

- If it can't find a precise match for a developer or publisher, the 'entry helper' will leave that field blank. Please type in the name again and if it's not in the DB, you can add it at that stage.

- For the Steam version, please check SteamDB.info for when the Linux and Mac versions were added, since sometimes this is unclear even on Steam itself.

- You can skip writing a description (only using the 'entry helper') if the store page had an English language description of the game.

- There's very little you need to add to make a valid entry. (You do not have to write a description, though we'd love you to.) But at the very least, please make sure you fill in some of the basic genre, perspective, and game style tickboxes when adding a game. Ideally, you could also add tech specs too.

That's the basic shape of it. Please feel free to ask questions in the forums, and good luck!

Tip Of The Day

Scan cover art in a high resolution and make sure that the scans are completely straight, for the covers themselves as well as the game discs. Scan the art directly against the glass, out of the keep case or jewel case, as this will give a sharper image. Of course, when you keep your games sealed or shrinkwrapped, we make an exception.   more tips
