Site stats update

Our overall stats currently look as follows:

The Switch now has over 2000 games. Crazy.

Site updates

In May, we did a lot of work on the site. Some notable changes:

  • Major overhaul of partner data
  • "Games companies" now replace Developers and Publishers being split into two records
  • Review sites can have a Twitter id
  • Design changes to the site - namely, a few tweaks to the fonts
  • Video partnership with SwitchedOnGames
  • Started storing the year/month rank for games
  • Game pages now show the year/month rank, and the year rank
  • Quick reviews - lots of tweaks to make it easier to add a quick review
  • Games collection now shows the number of players

On top of this list, we also made a bunch of changes to the back-end screens, admin area, and the tools we use to update the games database.

A busy month!
