  1. That data is from IGDB and is not manually inputted. So basically, you will only see that information if there is an IGDB page for that game. As far as the second part of this, the price for the game would be fairly complicated to show as you suggest. Different stores and regions display the price differently and when converting from one currency to another, is not always the same monetarily. Another complication would be sales and the general depreciation of the monetary cost of the package overtime. It would be difficult to monitor reliably and it would maybe be better to use another resource that specifically deals with game sales and prices such as psdeals. The series feature is in a public-beta state. At this time, there are no additional features planned for it, but there are discussions regarding some changes to the system. These discussions remain internal at this time though. The trophy advisor is a very basic function that simply just shows you what you trophies you could earn in relation to the games you own. To do what you suggest would require a significant change to the feature that would probably only be indefinitely on the back burner in light of more popular requests, with more prominent support being higher priority, such as series being a full site feature and a rarity leaderboard. This is, in a way, possible but the GIT team does not currently have the ability to mark such things.
  2. Providing a disclaimer is a totally fine thing to do. I personally think that this kind of disclaimer works best for story heavy games, and puzzle heavy games. This way, if someone doesn't want to be spoiled, they can click away.
  3. Now that GOTY is out of the way, we can now get Member Interviews back on schedule for March :highfive:

    1. Rally-Vincent---


      Chose someone interesting so they won't strip me of my title for the only interview with no response. :giggle:

    2. Dreggit


      We will see ;) as you recall, things will soon be different than last year, but only a little bit

  4. The series aspect of the site is still in a public-beta state (in that you have access to it, but it is not integrated into the main site) the restrictions and rules are in place to standardize everything in hopes that the feature will become a full site feature. Maybe at that time, we can revisit instances where games can fall into multiple series, but for now one series per game is how we are going about it for this beta-state. Now that GOTY is out, and some background things are moving forward in progress, you may see far more updates from me specifically as I resume work on the db and other things. I have been working on updates frequently, I just do not post about them, but for when I do directory sweeps, there will be updates as there have been in the past. There are several updates that need to happen, to clean up leftover materials from 2020, the attentive might notice when that happens
  5. - THE RESULTS - Hello PSNProfiles! It's that time of the year again, the 7th year in a row that we've posted results for the Guide of the Year Awards. While the voting format changed this year, the rewards have not! Like the past two years we award the top 3, then gives 21 more guides some love as well. This has worked well in the past and continues to ring true! Guide of the Year Winners To start off as we have from the beginning, the first awards we'll give are for the top three guides this year from all of your votes for this category. There were some really incredible guides this year, and these are three that the community really loved! But, oh? What a twist! There appears to be six guides here! What a surprise it was to us, when we double and triple checked the votes! Here are the winners! Each will receive a $100 (1st), $80 (2nd) or $60 (3rd) prize! 1st Place The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV - Overall Walkthrough By jermthejerm 2nd Place Demon's Souls - Full Trophy Walkthrough By BeforeJam 3rd Place (4-way tie) Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Tactician & Honour Mode Walkthrough By Kallume and Griffon234 I Am Bread Trophy Guide By SlimSanta94 Persona 5 Royal Trophy Guide By BeforeJam The Last of Us Part II Trophy Guide By BlackTorito Where to start? It was an unusual year in the world of guide writing on PSNP and more so for the world at large. When the world looked grim, many looked for ways to hone their skills and keep themselves busy with pen in hand, er... keyboard in hand? Anyway, the team took a very, very long time. Months in fact, to read through all of the published guides in the year to create the list that the community came to vote on. Not every recommendation made it either, to our dismay. However, by this process, it allowed more participation from the community in that they did not need to write why they chose what they did knowing that all of the options were remarkable this year. Even to those that didn't make it on the list, I should say that you should be proud. It is no simple thing to write a guide, much more so on PSNP. But anyway, I digress! The community was surprisingly very heavy handed towards one particular guide this year, we never suspected there would be a four way tie. Anyways, congratulations to all who won and please be sure to take a bow for the community! The Exceptional Guide Winners Two years ago we started the format of awarding 21 guides with the exceptional awards and it has done well, and has been well received by the community! This year we've decided to do that again, but also decided to award an Exceptionally High Quality badge to all nominated guides recognizing their efforts in going above and beyond in the work they created. We thought it made more sense to do this since all guides submitted were of incredible quality. Along with those however, your community votes will lead to some lucky authors earning some sweet cash prizes of $50 for 1st place, $40 for 2nd place, and $30 for third place in each category! Well done to the winners, these guides are incredible. Exceptional Gameplay Guides These are guides we've felt really shine with their organization, details, and ability to guide you through.

Children of Morta by Kallume and mking_63 Harvest Moon: Light of Hope by nyanchovy House Flipper by TrophyTomGuides I would like to congratulate all guide writers this past year. Not just the authors that got published, but the writers too. I said it before, and I'll say it again; it is no small task to write a guide and is often a far bigger undertaking that anyone initially realizes. If you have ever started writing, or have been writing a guide, I applaud you. To want to create something so to just help those around you is an incredible thing and deserves to be celebrated. So thanks to all of you out there, writers and authors both! As to all of our nominees, and those that did not make it into nomination, be proud of what you created and I thank you for all you do for this community and its members. Please join me in congratulating all of our nominees and winners! Thank you everyone and we will see you next year for GOTY2021!

    Vote Countdown - Countdown to Feb 25, 2021 2:30 pm in UTC (timeanddate.com)

  8. If possible, I would like any author who has a guide pending in the queue to please send me a message or contact me on discord (preferably on discord). I will answer messages within a day that I receive the message or immediately if I am able to.

  9. I already have a master list that you can browse in the Guidewriter's Headquarters Just scroll down to the middle of the original post
  10. Good evening one and all, to the long-awaited final selection of guides for GOTY2020. While I sincerely apologize for the gross delay, unfortunately, several events occurred outside of our control. It was appropriate to wait for all members to be present for the decisions to be finalized. Unlike previous years in which the community nominated guides, the staff has chosen the guides this year. In this way, we have tried to spotlight as many authors as possible to give a varied selection for you to choose from. In addition to this, all nominees will be receiving a badge of excellence from the team. This 2020 qualifying year was a very busy one, in fact, it was the busiest year we ever had on PSNP in terms of guide submissions. When the rules of the event changed, the task at hand to re-review all of the guides was a massive undertaking and to narrow it down was exceedingly difficult for the team. To put it into perspective, in the 2020 qualifying year we saw: 475 guides 249 unique authors Over 20 million unique guide views Nominated 58 unique guides Nominated 52 unique authors Needless to say, this is absolutely incredible and goes to show just how large our author community really is. I would like everyone to give all of those published authors a round of applause and to those published authors to give themselves a great, massive, pat on the back. It is not always easy to get your guide published on PSNP and takes a lot of time and effort for both the writers and the staff. With the sheer number guides under review, and many of them qualifying, we could not put every single guide that we wanted into this list. So in consideration to that fact, even if you do not see your guide here, or a guide that you think should have been here, please do not take it as a personal insult and that we sincerely appreciate all that the guide community brings to PSNP. Without our authors, PSNP would not be anywhere as good as it is today. Now, without further ado, let us get to the nominees for this year. The Nominees Gameplay Amnesia: Rebirth - Collectible Guide Coffee Talk - Drinks Guide and Recipes Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time - Full Collectibles Guide Dead Rising 4 - Trials Guide Dreams - Prize Bubble Guide Front Mission Evolved - Multiplayer Guide Grand Theft Auto III - 100% / Is That all You've Got?

Only guides published between December 2nd, 2019 and December 31st, 2020 were handpicked and selected by staff in the chosen list. Only guides in the nominations of this thread qualify. Please do not vote for anything not in the nominees list. The voting thread will be closed after two weeks. The top three guides of each category, and the top three guides overall, will determine the winners of each of the categories and the overall GOTY winner. Staff member guides are not eligible to win the GOTY. However, Co-op guides with staff members will be eligible. In case a co-op guide ends up in the top 3, the non-staff writer will get the whole prize. In case a guide has more than 1 writer, the prize will be split between all guide contributors, so long as they contributed a meaningful amount to the guide. We track all edits, so this will be checked. All participants must give at least 1 GOTY recommendation and 2 selections for every category above. If you do not at least cover these two requirements, your votes will not be counted.
  11. If you're curious about how we go about choosing banners: But anyway, I've updated this
  12. You have all been added to beta group. Please double check and be sure I have added you properly. More about groupings next week.
  13. Having recently returned from mourning and settling the various difficulties that come with such a loss, let us tighten these ropes and get sailing again shall we?


    As I understand there have been a vast many unhappy with guide review times in my long absence and others that feel some specific people are getting special treatment over others in terms of reviews. Then, let's try to clear out all items that have been grossly pending for some time...


    Additionally, member interviews have been on hiatus for some time, but would those potential participants be willing to wait until the authors that have waited overly long see their answers?

    1. MidnightDragon


      Welcome back. I'm sorry for your loss.

    2. OverlordOfRacing


      Glad to see you back man! Here for you always bro.

  14. I can confidently say this would likely not be implemented because while PSNP is predominately an English site, it is a global community and so the division ends with the country.
