User spotlight: Scaryfun's Critic Scores
Our regular 'eye of Sauron' look at a particularly helpful MobyGames user turns this week to Scaryfun, who has been contributing to the site since 2005, and is particularly helpful in aiding us with Critic Scores.

This year alone, he's added over 1300 Critic Scores, as well as over 600 promo images, 55 games, nearly 400 release infos, and a whole bunch of other stuff. The fact that we have such diverse reviews, even for obscure games, across many languages - and with sites it's difficult to grab scores from automatically - is down to users like him. Kudos, Sir!

Game & Watch handhelds - complete coverage!


Thanks to MobyGames contributor Kam1Kaz3NL77 & others, we now have over 100 items in our 'dedicated handheld' section, and have completed documenting Nintendo's Game & Watch handhelds.

Some examples: Manhole, Mario Bros., and, of course Snoopy Tennis. What's particularly nice about this is that we now have Nintendo games documented in a relational database from 1980-1981 all the way to the present day. Hopefully we can do more with this data in the future, but in the meantime, great work, y'all.

Focus on: Twitek's screenshot submissions!
One MobyGames contributor who's been on the site since 2014, largely contributing user-taken screenshots (a rarity nowadays!) is Twitek, and he now has over 2,000 screenshots added.

His particular concentration on Commodore systems has meant all kinds of useful screenshots that may not be available elsewhere online right now, from Tynesoft's Autobahn to the fun (& relatively new!) Sheepoid DX plus Woolly Jumper, as well as the super oddly named Joe & The Serif. Anyhow, thanks to him - and keep up the great work!

MobyGames - 'Featured Games' updating weekly.
For those who haven't spotted it, we're updating our Featured Games section every week of late, pointing out particularly obscure corners of our database. (Find the latest on the right column of the front page!)

Some of the neatest ones recently have been the (slightly terrible) Awesome Possum Kicks Dr. Machino's Butt, the definitely obscure Dr Ruth's Computer Game Of Good Sex, the classic/much-missed No One Lives Forever, & lots more. Thanks to Katie Cadet, Plokite_Wolf, Tony Denis, Virgil, & all regular contributors to this section.

Highlighting our new(ish) 'dedicated console' section!


Earlier this year, MobyGames launched a 'dedicated console' platform, recognizing that there's a lot of 'many games in one' TV games out there that don't have a central place to get documented.

Thus far contributors have added everything from the NES Classic to bizarre official Mega Drive x guitar games, and lots more besides. There's even a dedicated Tic-Tac-Toe machine from 1956 in the mix somewhere - and lots of Pong-like machines, of course.

Thanks to all MobyGames contributors that helped so far - and yes, we have a 'dedicated handheld' section too, for all you Game & Watch fans.
