MobyGames database now catalogues 60 000 games. Last time we've celebrated something like this was on the onset of 2010, since that day we have 10 000 more.
Naysayers would point out that this only means about 34 000 unique entries, 2 600 of them being compilations, subtract at least few hundred more for special editions. Nevertheless, the numbers are still impressive. All of this wouldn't be possible without dedicated contributors, who donate their time and painstaking research for free (madmen, I say!).

Don't bother with the posting though: This guy sums it up in a more rational and sensitive way.
Users of the client will able to catalog their video games and create personal customized game libraries to share. In addition, GameFly subscribers will be able to manage their queues for game rentals. The client also includes a store where anyone, including non-subscribers, can pre-order upcoming new release games and purchase used games.
The new desktop client will offer up-to-date news and information streams with the latest in the video game world. The Shacknews.com feed will be part of the mix, as well as a deep collection of HD trailers, videos, and screenshots. Users will have a customizable online identity and be able to engage other users as part of the client's social features.
A closed beta for the client will begin on September 8, with codes being handed out to GameFly members at an event in Los Angeles. The public launch for the client is planned to take place in the holiday season for the United States and United Kingdom.
