05/29/2010 Just a
quick update as two of the pages in the Home Arcade Projects section have
05/23/2010 This is
an official announcement that David's Video Game Insanity Version 6.0 has
been launched. There aren't any big changes really, everything has
to do with behind the scenes updates that do not effect normal browsing
of the site. Essentially the main difference is how each page is
titled. As DVGI is a site that is heavily dependent on its frames,
I never intended any of the pages to be accessed away from the main index.
However, as we all know, that's not how search engines work. Because
of this nearly every page that was not part of the main index was titled
"Get outta here!" - what CLU tells his Bit at the beginning of TRON after
his Game Tank is disabled. (I'm sure most browsing this site will
get the reference) Years ago I added a pair of links at the bottom
of each page that acts as top index to each section. The links provide
access to the main DVGI index as well as access to the main ClassicPlastic.net
index, along with some text pointing out that if the page was accessed
through an external source, it is actually part of a much larger site.
Yet gaining access to the information at DVGI via a search engine, unless
searching for specific terms, was still greatly hampered by the pages not
having unique titles. That's primarily what the new version addresses,
every page has been given a proper title just in case they are accessed
outside of the main index and their frames. I hope it will continue
to boost traffic and get the information here into the hands of the people
who would like to read it.
new column "1981: A Gaming Odyssey" premiers.
The second change has to do with ALT and
TITLE tags for mouse over text on images. For years and years I used
ALT to provide popup text when the mouse pointer is left over an image.
Of course this is an incorrect way to do things but as nearly every browser
continued to support it, many of us never changed. When a couple
years ago most modern browsers finally cut away using ALT tags in that
way, instead wanting the proper TITLE tag for the popup text. I've
gone through the entire site and changed all the tags on the pages where
they actually matter. I know there are still some ALT tags on the
RTM archive pages but they serve no purpose so I'm not going to bother.
So that's it, if a page looks crazy odd
for one reason or another, or there's a screwed up graphic somewhere -
please e-mail me and let me know! There should be an e-mail link
at the bottom of almost every page or check out the contact section to
many years I finally picked up yet another copy of Chrono Trigger for the
Super Nintendo, a game I've missed playing.
catch up again with a bunch of games I picked up from multiple places over
the course of a month. The Atari 2600 addition was over such a span
of finds that I lost track of what was new.
04/12/2010 With the
acquisition of a Sega Dreamcast lot I was able to pick up a couple games
I didn't already have. Also an addition to the Colecovision list
which doesn't happen very often since I rarely find games.

02/14/2010 Time to
play a little bit of catch up with acquisitions with some updates to the
master list that are overdue. There have been a lot of projects going
on which have severely limited the amount of time I can put into updates

time being, here are those master list updates, for the most part courtesy
of GameStop dropping PS2 and GBA prices.
