Stats filtered by site

Previously, when you viewed a games rank on say Desura, IndieDB or SlideDB it was competing against every other game, even the triple AAA's and non mobile titles. Now ranks are only split up site by site, which fixes up buttons as you can see below.

La-Mulana Knights of Pen & Paper
ERIE Project Zomboid

Games feed xml

For advanced users, we have a custom feed containing all games on Desura and their price (and sales price) in all currencies. If you run a site such as we recommend you use it to track specials.

Highest / lowest rated reviews

Now when we display reviews in profiles we also show the highest / lowest rated, so at a glace you can see what the fanboys / haters agree with the most.

Added bigger icons support

Finally, because we have finally started supporting mobile games officially - we needed to bump up the icon resolution to support app stores and their big app icons. So when adding or editing your game, you can now submit high res icons (i.e. 512x512) and our system will automatically resize them for use.

Regarding the highest/lowest ratings, do you have to have a certain number of reviews / ratings to qualify for it to show?
