Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to. –Alfred A. Montapert

We have added a theme for Mech / Robot.

There has also been a minor change to the guidelines. Games that were only released as part of a compilation and never as a "standalone" game can now get their own entries in the database. This is so they can be found in a search as well as appear in the "contains" field of the compilation they are apart of.

Today we made a change to the "What is not covered?" section of the guidelines. Previously, we excluded games played in a DVD or Blu-ray player with a TV remote. This rule has been revoked and the first "DVD player game" has been accepted into the database - Deal or No Deal - The Interactive DVD Game Show.



We have added the standard DVD regions:

Region 0 (FREE)
Region 1
Region 2
Region 3
Region 4
Region 5
Region 6
Region 9 (ALL)

...And the standard Blu-ray regions:

Region A/1
Region B/2
Region C/3
Region FREE (ABC)

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) ratings were added:

MPAA: G
MPAA: PG
MPAA: PG-13
MPAA: R

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) ratings were already in the database. We may add additional film ratings if there is need of them.

The 2016 Community Goals

mbmbmbmbmb
As you may or may not know in 2016 we are trying to hit 6 common goals with the community. Since we're just a bit over the first half of the year I thought it would be nice to take a look at how far we have already got:


1. Have the VGG community play games on each of the 118 platforms listed on the geek.
Community goal 2016: Let's together play games from all platforms!

29 out of the 116. Yes two platforms were crossed of the list. But still this is a very hard challenge and all help is still needed!

2. Beat 1800 number of games in the 2016 Videogames that got beaten geeklist.
Videogames Beaten by VGGers in 2016

On the 15th of july, which we are as I'm posting we are just shot of 900 games beaten on this list. So we are a little bit behind the halfway point halfway the year but I think this will surely be possible to hit. I'm confident we will make this.

3. Get the VGG community to play the top 100 games on the VGG ranking list as off 01.01.2016.
Community goal 2016: Play the top 100 games on the VGG ranking list

56 out of 100 games. Nicely done, just over the halfway point with 6 months to go. Maybe these that are left will be harder to get played but we are counting on everyone to help us out!

4. Let 20 users each play 5 games on different platforms.
Community goal 2016: Play games on 5 different platforms!

We have 26 people registered to help us out on this one and 5 out of the 20 users goal have already completed this challenge. It's a fun multiplatform challenge. Come join.


5. Get 10 numbers of players together online for 4 sessions.
Keep an eye on our: Multiplayer forum

I'm afraid nothing has been done so far, multiplayer forum has gone a bit quit but hopefully we can still get this going.

6. Play a game published from every single year from 1986 till now, including 2016.
Community goal 2016: Let's together beat games from each year 1986–2016!

3 years (1999, 2006 and 2008) have not yet been beaten. So we are very close on this one.

Users who have been helping us out getting to one or more of these goals this year will also receive a special microbadge (series):

ran this event and made some stats for us:

* We added over 600 games into the VGG database in a two week span.
* That is 1.8 % off the entire VGG database.
* Over 2000 geekgold was made by the users by adding these games.
* Due to the event we also handed out 1467 extra geekgold bonuses.
* 3 users submitted their first game ever into our database.
* 12 users got the third threshold and added at least 31 games.

Keep an eye out, there will be a second game submissions event later this year.

VGG Admin Gazette - News update Apr '16

Did you visit my www.kobudovenlo.nl? It has game info

Time for another update from me! With more admins posting news updates, I have less to cover. So thank you for that!

Business/Construction theme
We've expanded the Business theme to Business/Construction to include the place city/town building games in.
There still might be a number of games with currently only theme "Other" which now should be labelled "Business/Construction". I trust my fellow VGGeeks to find and correct those!

Hall of Fame updated
page: Hall of Fame
I recalculated the list of Ultimate VGG Uploader microbadge owners. HUGES CHANGES
First off, a great applause for Forbidding. In the last months since my previous update, Forbidding added another 1000.9 points widening the gap to the #2 to a stunning 1460 points! 1000.9 points in a few months! That's enough to get you in the Hall of Fame, when you start at zero!
Frumpish also did great, increasing a place in the ranking and becoming the new #2, by adding 247.75 to his score.
Andrewhodkinson managed to rise 3 places, becoming the new #4, by adding 206.75.
LostDice added another 26.25 but had to give up a place, due to andrewhodkinson's run. Now at #6
Sirjeyhmis added 86.45 points, enough to rise 2 spots, to #7
These were all the HOFamers which increased in score more than 25 points.

kidsplinter and jgoyes now have new company: Bryce is now also a Herculean microbadge holder. Which one of these three will enter the Hall of Fame first? Or will we be surprised by a newcomer, suddenly amassing 1000 points, like Forbidding just did?...
