Yes exactly - a separate section. There will be Forum and Games. The games section front will be a Search, but you will also be able to sort by Alpha (A, B, C, D, etc.). That will serve up search results in the form of screen thumbnails. The actual game page will include (at least right now):
- Overview (which I will try to usually grab from the back-box-flap marketing copy)
- Details (to include lots of database wikipedia info, like year published, Publisher, Designer, Composer, etc.)
- Artworks (which could be box scans, adverts from old mags)
- Screenshots (which I hope I get right!)
- A community voting tool, where you score with Hearts, naturally
The voting tool and comments might be phase 2, but I'm hoping I can launch with them. It depends on how long it may take to do and if I get antsy or not to ship what I have. "Phase 1" is already nearly complete, and currently is built to be responsive.
For what it is worth, I've been trying to make the U.S. releases my initial focus. To do this, I've been using a brilliant free and all-digital PDF archive of Computer Gaming World, which runs across the Amiga's timeframe. It also has lots of content for C64/Atari ST fans, but in every issue there are a few gems in terms of in-depth reviews and honest commentary, which is hugely helpful. I wish I could find other US-based mags that were Amiga focused (and not solely dedicated to video production). But they all seem to cover the whole scene, across all brands. CGW had an "Amiga Preferences" section with little dedicated columns of text
Tiny example from 1986, August (Issue #30) for your enjoyment:
After the initial sea of game clones for the Amiga the tide has shifted to a small puddle of new items. The biggest wave rolling in so far was Arctic Fox and the next sighted "big-one" is Marble Madness from EA. It seems to be out there somewhere in the distance. On the horizon are Jet from subLogic and others from Sierra and EPYX. We all keep waiting to see how each new release tops the other in appearance and performance on the Amiga.
No joke I read this stuff!
