    You learn something new everyday seeing a game being released on a Sunday

    That's really a great addition to the site. I have a feeling I could waste a few hours easily just browsing Game center randomly. When I read the first post and I saw "from games themselves (>122K games)", my first thought was "Hey, what's wrong with old small games? Star Raiders on the Atari 8-bit is considered a classic, and it's only 8K!" But then I realized Costello meant there are more than 122,000 games in the database. Ooops! :blush: Nice update to the site, and I'm sure it's gonna be a popular feature.

    How long until the domain is changed to something more trendy, like Game World

    Hrmm interesting!

    What about ROM hacks? Would it be viable to tag those with the game they are for (or have a staff member set something so they show up so you don't get it polluted with random questions)? Maybe a dedicated box for those could be cool.

    Edit: NVM, seems that's gonna be part of the download center feature.

    Looks cool tho. Loving the idea of an opencritic integration too, could save me a lot of time when checking if a game is worth my time or not.

    good. Gbatemp is a piracy enabling website. This is a positive step in that direction.

    So super excited to see this finally happen! Ever since Costello first announced the concept, I thought it was awesome, and it turned out even more amazing! :D

    This is such a neat feature in my opinion, and something I've been missing since the old release lists, and the G-online feature back in the day :wub:

    Now, back to develop achievements for Ganbare Goemon: Neo Momoyama Bakufu no Odori (called "Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon" in the west)

    It would be nice to have save sharing to. I know that the filesize could be a problem, but it would be lovely having everything in one place
