MobyGames News

Congrats: Kennyannydenny, Kam1Kaz3NL77 on MobyPoint wins!
Just a quick note with a couple of MobyGames contributors who have been doing GREAT work with modern platforms, and just hit new milestones.

Specifically, Kennyannydenny is now at 30,000 total points since he started helping in 2014, thanks to major additions of 10,000 promo images, almost 900 related sites & 640+ games. Congrats!

Secondly, Kam1Kaz3NL77 has now reached 40,000 points, thanks to a record that includes 8,600 pieces of (largely digital) cover art, 5,400 promo images, and almost 450 games, also mainly on modern platforms. Great work, both of you.

2,000 'release trailer' videos added to MobyGames already.
Though we only started up a few weeks ago - & you don't get MobyPoints for your videos until we launch the next version of our website - happy to say that we made it to >2,000 videos on MobyGames pages already.

(Actually, it's closer to 2,500! Thanks to Plokite_Wolf, our top video contributor so far, as well as John Harris, Kennannydenny, and MAT, all of whom have added more than 100 videos. And please PM me if you'd like access & don't have it - the feature is still in Alpha.)

Reminder: our rules are that you have to link to official 'release trailers' for games with some gameplay footage included, & we'll be archiving these (YouTube-hosted) videos in the long-term for safekeeping. Some highlights already linked include this Super Metroid TV ad, as well as a Thief promo video and this Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 trailer.

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 :)
