Be nice if they had a text file export you could use so that you don't have to link to their site.

Thanks.

Just added my first game. Feels great.
Love that note feature.

EDIT: But what's the difference between "mastered" and "completed"?
If I've just beaten MGS4 on normal it should read as "beaten", right?

Mastered is you beat it and went above and beyond what you need to beat the game i.e. Say you played FFVII and beat the end just get all the story but then you went back and decided that you wanted all the Final Limit Breaks and the Best weapons and wanted to beat Ruby and Emerald Weapon. All those you don't need to do to "complete" the story.

Ya, that's what I thought.

But then we've beaten.

If completed is "completing the story and beating the game", what's "beaten" then?


EDIT: Aww. Found it. The description was right under the actual backlogger window. Strange, how I could miss that.


Completed:

"For games which are 100% done. All extras and modes have been unlocked and finished. All significant items have been collected."

Mastered:

"A special rank for completed games in which a difficult, user-defined challenge or speed run has been successfully finished."

I didn't mean for it to be a replacement for the games finished thread. I just find it's a really way to help organize my collection and figured a couple of others from here might enjoy it. That and it runs way faster (though without the pretty box art) as the IGN collection manager i was using before.

Sucks that it's not accessible at your guys work, I never thought that would be a problem.

I pretty much found the site Sunday after poking around with it ended up spending the next 3 hours entering all my current collection (i have lots in storage) into it. Definitely a fun little exercise.

I added you cash, feel free to add me (and anyone else that wants to. Account name is weasl.

It's fun looking at the statistics that you can more easily see when everythings entered. Like.. I haven't beaten a single one of my Wii games, and I've beaten roughly 20% of the games I own right now (i expected it to be way way lower).
