Some of you may have spotted that games such as RiME now have - shock, horror - an official launch/release video embedded on their page! Yes, it's only taken us until 2017 to enter the world of moving images, please don't mock us :P (Some other examples: Grand Theft Auto V, Beavis & Butt-Head In Virtual Stupidity, haha!)
This is an Alpha roll-out of a feature that will be available to all in the next few months, whenever you can start submitting via our new 'Phoenix' version of the website. ('Entry helper' is another Phoenix feature that is already available to all - we've been making great progress of late.)
This new video adding feature - intended specifically for official videos that include gameplay of the title - is now accessible on a contributor by contributor basis. If you're a regular contributor who'd like to get access to it and add videos, please PM me & I'll give you specific instructions and rules. (BTW, we are using embedded YouTube videos, but intend to archive any linked-to videos to our Archive.org collection over time to ensure they don't get lost due to changing accounts or policies.)
Of course, many of these are automatically added when the 'entry helper' is used. (This is super useful if the websites they are grabbed from ever go away.) But there's also a lot of custom promo image work - for example, from Mr Flibble, who is adding all kinds of neat old PC game screenshots, among other things! And roll on, 300k images!
Luckily, contributor JMM has created a giant MobyGames/MAME comparison spreadsheet and found the 2,700 games (!) we are missing on arcade.
If you're adding them, feel free to make your description brief (2 or 3 paragraphs) but descriptive, and it would be great to get MAME screenshots for many of them - but maybe you can all split up & some people can add, with others adding screenshots? (There may be a more formal goal on this when the PlayStation goal is done at the end of May!)
