Just a thought, but isn't it about time to remove the OS9 column from the IMG website's Release Dates page?? The number of games marked as "9" has dwindled (there's currently only two), but I don't think any of the games marked as "9" for the last five years or more were ever intended to be released for OS 9, or even for PowerPC.

I cannot fail to notice that a couple of the given release dates are slightly off: Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep for Borderlands 2 is supposed to be have been released on 6/25/2016?

The entire website needs to come into the 2010's anyway. Design wise I love it, but the content is so outdated in most cases.

I wouldn't mind if design-wise it was updated too. Currently the Mac Game Store is more up to date in design than it.

I love the MGS design, would definitely like to see the IMG website get a similar design.

Great change would be to make home page more news/reviews oriented. Sneak Previews and Features are almost dead categories taking lot of screen space.

I just quickly updated some of the more glaring mistakes. 2016? :) The release dates list is auto populated based on individual entries made for each game. Those entries are most often updated when a news item is released about the game, but if they don't get updated for some reason or a mistake is made then the result is weirdness. I'll try to give it a closer look when I have more time. An interesting tidbit: IMG currently has 2,374 games listed in its database.

Did someone say we needed more features and previews? I agree! Were you volunteering to help out with that? We can always use more writers! :) The pay is nonexistent, but the love of an adoring readership is more than enough to make up for that! And, once a year Battle Cat comes around and gives presents to all the writers. It's just like Christmas, if Santa were an angry feline packing firearms and explosives.

I would love to volunteer but I am afraid my English is not strong enough for the job :-(
I'll stick with game reviews in Czech.

I'm pretty sure MGS is the focus, since it probably makes the vast majority of all of the money. IMG is most likely just some sort of side project that maybe breaks even with ad revenue

Maybe so, but this is a relatively recent development in IMG's long and illustrious history.

I volunteer........somebody else. HaHa. I'll be here all week.

I'd love to help out but my writing skills are limited to long boring research papers and technical documentation for people who have no business touching a computer. Though there was my illustrious college radio career............  What were we talking about again?

We were talking about hot female video game characters and their opinions on OS9 gaming.
Kestrel (Falcon NW Tiki) – 3.6 GHz i7 9900K / 32GB RAM / 2x2TB Intel 7600p (RAID0), 2x480GB Intel 730 (RAID0), 10TB STX BarraCuda Pro / TITAN V 12GB
Iridium (MacBook Pro Mid-2012) – 2.7 GHz i7 3820QM / 16GB RAM / 4TB Samsung 860 Pro / GeForce GT 650M 1GB

When there's a multiplayer version, I'm going to be on Frost's team. Well, except he doesn't seem to actually need a team...I mean, what's the point? "Hey look, it's Frost and His Merry Gang of Useless Hangers-On!" Or something.
