Home of the Underdogs
Basically a modern version of Home of the Underdogs. Full database imported, user comments, user added reviews, user ratings, community all integrated. It's still ongoing, and will hopefully get more polished as time goes on. Downloads are still forthcoming.

Oh yeah, Any Joomla gurus or folks who know how to make it nicer, want to moderate, expand, or can help out would be appreciated..

Okay, this has some serious potential. Get downloads back and you are officially my hero.

God bless you. No annoying pop-unders either!

I was going to post this to MeFi but it looks like the game display page isn't quite working yet.

Yeah, I broke it yesterday. It should be fixed now.

Along with the login bug I introduced last night.

Downloads are going to go partially up today, but it's taking forever to get the files to the webserver..

Downloads are available, albeit incomplete. Limiting factor is my upload speed, but I'll do another batch process this evening.

This is awesome. Wrote a review for XCOM Apocalypse last night while gripped by insomnia.

Kick ass. I want people expanding and adding to this as much as possible, so it's good to see the additions starting.

Now we just need to grow the community. This isn't a static page like the old one, it's meant to be grown, expanded and improved. The more the merrier.

This is absolutely fantastic.

For what it is worth, depending on your feelings towards having available for download things that can still be bought commercially, XCom and some others are available on steam.

Good catch. I'll flag those. The batch importer just hooked it all up, regardless of availability.

Nice! I think I'm going to be using a lot of my download quota here over the next few weeks.

Registration seems to be down at the moment; I was going to register to mention that in the search box at the top of the screen you have to manually delete the word "Search" before you are able to use it. Most sites would clear that out upon clicking on it.

You are a god among men. Thank you.

The site seems to be down right now?

Fucking awesome. Well done!

Geez, and I only clicked into projects by accident - it's an Easter miracle!

Aaah... it looked to me like the site was broken for a long time, but deleting the site cookie caused it to work again. Hmm.
