Forums - Gaming Discussion - What is Gamewise...

and how have I reviewed 401 games on there?

gamewise is a birth child of vgchartz game database.

So whatever you reviewed on here it went to gamewise. Except no one really uses gamewise and more people are just pissed of you cannot add games here to your collection anymore

 

 

yep...

Someday if the Internet gods are pure, we will have it fornour database with all our information back here.

My T.E.C.H'aracter

this is what I don't get: gamewise and gamrreview were created to make vgchartz only about everything that has to do with sales but we still don't get as much sales information as we got a few years ago. I remember when I could see that No More Heroes (for example) sold about 500 copies a week (we could select specific publishers in the weekly global chart). and we also saw the first 10 weeks of sales for every game.
Is all of this coming back for non-pro users or is it staying this way?

One ofthe dumbest moves was to disconnect vgchartz from the db. If gamewise was to be a success, then it should have been integrated in a form to vgchartz. It's lack of business sense imho, for a creator of a sales site I'm not too impressed.

I love ioi, but come on man, there are ways to monetize all this and make it successful, and to leverage your communities.

Gamewise looks like... nothing to be honest I have no idea what you can do there and what its for?

Yup, I feel like Gamewise is way too isolated. Why would I want to hang out there doing nothing but adding stuff to that database? Leave that to the big boys on vgchartz!

Your evil twin brother has the same 401 games out of the 460 games you have.

 

Anyways, gamewise......I havent went to that site in months ever since I see that when I add a game, it gets labled as the wrong system.

 

Max Payne....PC...not Xbox ~.~

Anyways, I use IGN's game library...as bad as it is....closest to what I could find that resembled the system they had here :(

Sale thing very stupid and pointless. Wiki laughs at it daily.
I don't understand why they took our game database away and since almost all the members want it back.. Why they haven't yet. Very stupid
