    Archive.vg, a site by the same person who runs the macscene.net forums, Is now open to the public.
    Previously, Only "Blue Key" (fancy way of saying "beta") members were allowed in.

    I was lucky enough to be a "Blue Key" member, and I can tell you, the site has a LOT of content… It also looks very nice… All that skeumorphism…


    Archive.vg is also partnered with the "OpenEmu" project, a "Multi Video Game System" Emulator, looks to me like they will be integrated together eventually…

    From OpenEmu's twitter description:

    This is probably a bigger deal for Mac users than Windows/Linux user, however.

    Worth the wait, I'd say… It was first announced In 2010, I believe… macscene.org was different then…

    They are working on an iPhone app IIRC…

    This seems a bit unnecessary, but hey, I won't complain. It certainly can't hurt, anyway.

    Would be nice if they had full DVD case art and Disc Labels. The case art is split into sections almost making it useless.

    Never heard of them before. Is it a warez sites? I could swear Warez sites against the rules and the punishment is a one way ticket to banned-ville.

    Did you perhaps consider checking the site out, before posting?

    It's an archive. Not a ROM hosting site, or any other form of warez.

    Same problem, which is why I asked what the site was for.

    Hmm... Not impressed... It's just a bunch of screenshots and boxart. Totally useless unless you leech their screens for some emulator. What's the point?

    I was hoping for more of an IMDB-style database, with artists cross-referenced.
