Other sub-cat is for games, Other (parent) cat is for any platform that doesn't have enough items to have their own category. Which should be how it is done but still needs some cleanup to do. I don't think we need to do it all right now. For example, there is no reason why GameKing should have its own cat, it can live under Other no problem.

In regards to what is supposed to go into Other/Other, that is why I put a request to rename Other to Other Games. Other already is games (in the db) but it doesn't state as such. I will be doing an ADV thread on Other just to make sure this is sorted out.

sub-cats have item types but cats do not.

In summary for now about the main sub-cats.
- Other Hardware (currently Hardware [Other]) is for Consoles that have removable media. Carts, cards, discs, DVD, or multi-platform bootlegs like a Retron, etc.
- Other accessories (currently Accessory) is for accessories for consoles without an accessory category, or for things that support multiple consoles.
- Other games (currently Other) is for games that have no sub-cat, in general it is for games for the hardware in Other Hardware sub-cat.
- Dedicated Consoles are for consoles without removable media.

This item is  . The Title and Date both seem to be incorrect. The title also seems to be more relevant to unrelated steam release?

As with most digital platforms, game entry names change over time. Also consider this game was added to steam 10 years ago. You can sometimes tell if a name was changed by using

A famous example is Wreckfest which was on Steam for many years as Next Car Game with a couple other names in between before settling on Wreckfest.

All Steam games should have the app id from the URL added to the Item Number field on the entry so it can be easier to research.

Going through the generic Hardware categories. They need to get re-organized and we don't need this split out into regions.

Based on internals, Hardware in Other are Consoles only, but also are not dedicated consoles. So all dedicated consoles will be moved to that section. Only consoles allowed in (soon to be) Other Hardware sub-cat are consoles that have a cart/disk/disc slot that are not computers (PC/Mac).

36. Diablo III

This is something I had played earlier this year that was a game I had previously beaten, but it is technically an "endless" game at this point. For whatever reason i wanted to try it again but this time do something different. And that was to complete a Season Journey. For Season 27 I had made one more character that I had not made yet, the male Demon Hunter. To complete the Season Journey is to finish 4 tiers of achievements, although there are additional ones possible. And despite having played this game for so long, I never really got into the mechanics or synergies of skills in this game like I had done in Diablo II. Because of the difficulty tiers, you really need to do that or else you end up hitting a progression wall, which is something that my other regular chars had run into. Unlike DII, there doesn't appear to be any real way to make any interesting build without using a synergised Set.

My regular WD was sort of on that path, using a partial set bonus and one other item to make it to Torment 9 on GRs, where I was able to see damage numbers in the billions, but his progress was quite slow. He could get the kills but would kill slow when there were large numbers on the screen. The pets were not doing any sort of damage but basically keep the enemies away. 1v1 on a boss or GR boss was easy, usually a 1-3 click kill. The primary damage for the WD is Haunt, which I could use constantly without worry of running out of mana. The combinations involve these skills, which were not (and still aren't) something I understand in regards to how the damage is calculated:
- When Haunt lands on an enemy already affected by Haunt, it instantly deals 3500 seconds worth of Haunt damage.
- Locus Swarm and Haunt now deal their damage in half of the normal duration.
The WD page is here:

For the Seasonal Demon Hunter, the choice was clear. All of the GR leaderboard people were using the Marauder's Set and so I had figured I would try it as well. In addition, I was using Kanai's Cube to convert set items which I never did before, because I wasn't trying to use a set and just using whatever I ended up getting. For this, the Set Bonus says it all, as to how this works:
- You may have 2 additional Sentries, Cluster Arrow deals 153% increased damage
- Sentries cast Cluster Arrow when you do, as well as automatically cast your equipped Hatred spenders.
- Your primary skills, and Sentries deal 12,000% increased damage for every active Sentry.
And then I have my skills set up so that Cluster Arrow is my only Hatred spender (the Sentries never cast Traps or spawn other Sentries) and what ends up happening is once I put just 1 sentry out, everything on the screen gets melted even at Torment X.
This character is here (the boots do not show up on the site for me)

And after completing the Season Journey, I wanted to try some ideas out with my regular Demon Hunter using up to the second bonus of Marauders and the second bonus of The Shadow's Mantle, however I ended up seeing a slowdown in progression at Torment X and I know it can't actually perform past that without that huge damage boost or without actually using a full set.

So I consider this game done (again) for now, and will change to Minecraft in an attempt to complete as much of Project Ozone 3 as I can. I considered starting over but I have already done so much that going backwards wasn't something I wanted to do at this point.

The variant of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition I own and created an entry for is a good example of how detailed information can become. That level of detail is greatly welcomed to the database.[/font]

small correction: do not use the word "callout" in Description. Use "text" instead. Example:

"Only at Walmart" text on front cover

A few months ago I got some items from an electronics recycling pickup which mostly ended up being old servers (P2-4 era), telecom and AV equipment. Aside from that was a pile of Wii items, which included 4 black Wii and 2 white Wii systems, and a few games. I ended up keeping 1 of the black Wii systems as I was able to piecemeal a complete system but without the box.

I finally got approval to move the remaining Wii items, and unfortunately when I went through to clean things up I had to toss out 5 Wii Motion Plus controllers due to excessive battery corrosion. The place I brought everything to would only take whole systems and they chose the 3 black Wii systems (with PSU, AV, Wii Motion plus with jacket for each), 10 Nunchucks (9 black, 1 white), Mario Sonic Olympics and 2x New Super Mario Bros Wii games. With that they gave me trade credit and I was able to get these:

Super Famicom
Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu '94
Super Famista 2
Super Famista 3
Super Famista 5
Super Kyuukyoku Harikiri Stadium

The Adventures of Bayou Billy
Base Wars
Destination Earth Star
Double Dragon
Legendary Wings
Sky Shark (boxed)
Tiny Toon Adventures

Neither of our qualified sources use this name for the publisher, they just use THQ or THQ Inc.

Publisher: THQ Japan

Subsidiary for THQ in Japan up until 2012.

There is no company entry on Mobygames. Give some game examples and we can check on them to see if it qualifies.

Japanese XB360 versions of the first Saints Row and The Outfit. The company name is on the back of the cover together with the address and customer support info.

I have looked at the actual positions at museums (such as the Strong Museum) but they have such lofty requirements.

Basically what I do here.

I'm not sure if it is the profession I would want most, but the line of work is something I enjoy doing. Archiving and preservation has always been an interest of mine.

Milanuncios is now only for residents of Spain.

It still works for me, it shows that message for a minute then redirects to the main site.

They were created at a different point of time for the site, when there was more of a fly by the seat of your pants instead of having some sort of direction. Since the reason for why there are not additional categories for digital PC platforms is also applying to Steam or GOG. We do not have the correct solution in place, so those categories still exist. Whenever we get to the point where we can assign tags to items, those categories will technically go away and there will be only 1 category: PC Digital Download, and a user can apply filters to that category to show items that were released on Steam, Gog, Epic, or any of the 50 other digital platforms.

Burnout 2: Point of Impact - Didn't show up on search when I first looked for it! My bad!

In future:
1. For this thread, you should post the original and the dupe to your post
2. When you create entries in a PlayStation games category, the item number should have the hyphen in it if it is in this format: LLLL-NNNNN

It is a PSN title in EU and has been changed to that. Crazyfox made a generic entry. GameFaqs only has digital titles and since the physical version is not called The Eternal Castle Remastered (it is clearly just The Eternal Castle) it makes it an easy change.

Physical only has text "[Remastered]" on the back text, not on front or on the spine. So if it is still indeed missing from PS4 [NA], it can be added as Eternal Castle, The with The Eternal Castle Remastered in alt-name field.
