Dude, where are you planning on hosting the site?

The reason I ask is that I have 2 servers of my own and coulf therefore offer you space - all for gratis of course...

For the moment just manuals, warranty, safety leaflets that sort of stuff. But the database is going to be an ever growing, on-going entity so it'll all be in their eventually so we can have a total definitive NES collectors encyclopedia style site before I move on for my plans for world domination.

I finished all the gameplay footage last night after 2 days solid playing NES games on an emulator. One thing I discovered is just how much I suck at a lot of these games :lol: Just need to start editing the credits/logo onto each now then it's the screenshots (which means loads more game playing which is going to make my fingers bleed soon) and onward to website design!

Very cool stuff. I'm interested but I'm coming from a US perspective. I have a ton of retrobates up though if you're interested, they're under my same name Miketendo. I'd like to see the site if it's already up though.

Cool I will have a look :) No site up yet, just tidying up the details before the design gets done.

I'd be more than happy to help! I'm currently going for a complete PAL Gameboy collection, so would be good if we could do something - even if it literally means sharing magazine scans of early NES/GB magazines!

I think one day once the NES stuff is well under way I might just branch out into the GB UK side of things as a sister site as there's just as much gaming goodness there that needs coverage too :)

Mag scans I currently have are big chunks of Club Nintendo (only missing a few for a full set), NForce and the Official Nintendo Magazine. Going to be on the lookout for Total! as well.

I also need to start getting my head around accessories reviews as I have a big pile of those gathering dust things like ROB,the UForce, Miracle Piano etc I think the game reviews are enough writing for now though! My biggest pain in the butt is screen shots at the mo again if anyone fancies playing a few games and taking several of a title from my list then please drop me a line.

I'm up for writing articles too, not just reviews. Let me know. :)

Are you using flash for the site?

Only need reviews for the moment but will def have a list of articles soon :D

No requirements for Flash at the moment but its possible further down the line if we start hosting some sort of vids/games etc

Time for another update! :D

Taken me 2 days solid and many hours but I have done all the screen shots for every game. WHEW. That's everything just a bit of tidying up and it'll be hand over time.
