Looks pretty damn good. Nice simple database, easy to use and very clear. The reviews that are there are interesting to read too.

I've just added a Reviews tab as well just so people can go straight for the content rather than trawling through the database.

I might clean this up at some point with a similar layout to that seen on the Articles page but for now this will have to do :lol:

Looks good. Really well done.

Your forum's Off Topic section is just crying out for a tea/coffee comparison thread, though.

Had to give the forum on the site a good kick up the backside and now it resembles something worth viewing so please feel free to have a look! Sadly if you already joined you will have to resign up (I've messaged everyone with apologies!) but it really needed doing.

Finally, a website aimed at the UK NES Scene.

Most of the NES websites I went to, only aimed at the American scene, great to see something helpful for us british.

This was one of my main reasons for starting NES-Bit. We get so little coverage considering the size of the market share we held so it's odd there's not been much of a web presence.

Awesome site, been looking forward to it for a while since the NES was the first console I owned :D

Let me know if you ever need help contributing anything on the Megaman games (box/manual pictures, box blurbs etc.)
