Are apostrophes throwing off the search as well?

The games themselves aren't coming up but are in the database.

It is not the apostrophes. We're looking into ways to best fix this particular issue.

Searching for g-loc returns a ton of results, none of which are G-LOC. Using quotes returns zero results.

Searching for "air battle" returns zero results:
http://vgcollect.com/search/%22air%20battle%22

Searching for air battle returns 23 results in which you can find most of the G-LOC entries, iirc some versions do not use the Air Battle subtitle, so there are likely entries that I don't currently know how to find using Search.

EDIT: Here is one example, G-Loc on computers was called G-LOC R360. Here is the C64 example:

(DB is currently missing the Atari ST version, of which I have not yet confirmed that it exists)

Huh. Interesting. Wonder if it's because of the parentheticals in the title? But if so, we'd end up with a lot of broken searches for our variants, too.

Searching for the original name works, if anything by searching for Kisima Ingitchuna

Search doesn't like the term "Last Of Us" or even the word "Last" apparently as I get 0 results for both.  ???

Was this the thread where we put in bugs with the search engine?

I tried putting in Yu-Gi-Oh into the search, but I get no relevant results back. It does however work if I put in "yu gi oh" with no hyphens, but "Yu-Gi-Oh" in quotes gives me no results
