I am the founder of DBolical and creator of ModDB, IndieDB and SlideDB. My aim is to make it easier for gamers to find great games/mods no matter their stage of development. And more importantly give game/mod developers a place to share their work and grow their fanbase - without being dependent on press/editors gatekeeping the important news sites. If you have any ideas or suggestions, hit me up I am always available to talk with the community.

So what is up with all the 10/10 reviews? It seems gamers either love or hate a title and give it 10/10 or 1/10. How about we be more critical and review titles which were 6/10s? The 10/10 value kinda loses its meaning if everyone hands it out like cheap candy. If this trend continues I will normalize the rating system so a 10/10 carries less weight than some of the less popular numbers.
On a more positive note, in 8 years of running the site only 200 reviews were posted. Two weeks since the new review system was launched and already 280 reviews have been posted. This is a great start but considering there are 10,000+ game / mod profiles on the site we still have a loooong way to go.
I also quietly rolled out a new video player (IndieDB and Desura only at the moment) which I believe is pretty damn sexy. Check it out below and fingers crossed you are not an IE user as it seems to freeze your PC (working on a fix). HD support is next on the video todo list.
Finally I cannot believe we haven't got more emails regarding the car game sponsorship news we put up. Are none of you making car games or do none of you want a large bundle of cash to help you make your game with few strings attached?
