    I had no plans last week to pick up any new games. Then I happened to find a few deals that I couldn't pass up on Facebook. The result? This.

  2. Suggestions for new game sort options

    03-05-2018 at 08:33 AM
    As awesome as the game list that we have now is in comparison to what it used to be - and how nice the sorting by number of records is - I'd love to see a few more sorting options that allow us further peeks into game popularity on the site.

    I'd love to see some sorting that helps us find ...
  3. Make Trax (Tracks) March!

    02-28-2018 at 11:09 AM
    So my focus for February on just spreading out my submissions across new games, quantity over quality, went fairly well, I'd say. Not nearly as many submissions as I intended, but with the large size of the queue, a bout with the flu, and getting sucked in by Monster Hunter World, I think it still met ...

  5. Score I would dispute if I could

    02-22-2018 at 12:03 PM
    If I had the credibility - which I don't, and apparently it takes a long time to build up to the 4000 needed - there's a score I would definitely dispute. But I can't, so I'll just share it here.

  8. Atari Jaguar scores all on the same date?

    01-29-2018 at 11:34 AM
    So, while cleaning up the scores on here is a big topic, how about this:

    Why are almost all of the Atari Jaguar scores from the same date? Other than a few, they're all marked "referee", and with a date of 2004-6-11. Did they come from another source, and if so, was that other source trustworthy ...

    A little thought based on some comments I've seen lately.

    If you don't think a record is deserved - if you think a score isn't a special enough performance to really count as a record - what to do? I think it's obvious. Beat it. Or convince someone else to beat it.

    From what I can determine, the "fat" PS2 accomplishes compatibility for PS1 games through the use of the original PS1 chip working as the audio chip for the PS2. While clearly there was more to PS1 than just whichever chip that is, that sounds like it can fit some interpretations of what "original hardware" ...
