KH 1.5+2.5 is at 96. WOO!!!!!

So fun to look at Kirby gripping itself into the Top 35 :)

Now now now ... why is the Oculus Go always switching between the software and hardware sections ? In fact, it's not even there anymore ?

Not sure what everybody thinks but I think the updates would have more meaning if done daily instead of every couple of hours.

I agree to that. It would also be less demanding for the people that do the updates.

Since the process is seemingly more-or-less automated now it doesn't seem to be that demanding. My opinion is that Marth and nero took the time to write a script to fetch and parse all this information so they should be able to post at the intervals of their choosing.

They can do whatever they like but I'm suggesting something that might make their work more appreciated. I just find I never look at the charts anymore because the position change from a couple of hours ago means little to me. 

That's just my opinion. Other people could like it.

I have given the frequency of the updates already a bit of thought and the last few days was a lot of experimenting. The process is currently semi-automatic. I have to press the trigger for each update and post it manually in here. I want to make it fully automated but posting on vgc gives me a few problems currently mostly in regards to formatting.

Imo I want to update every 6 hours atm. Seems like the sweet spot to me. Then we have quite a bit of change and it is still regulary. 1-3 hours is too often I agree with that. My acceptable range is currently 4-8 hours. Of cource my sleep schedule is an exception atm. But if you have other proposals im open to anything :)

Yeah I was not really sure what to do with that thing. First I missed it so it got put in Software. Then I put it in hardware but I currently filter everything VR-related. Not sure Oculus Go fits in the same category as its standalone hardware instead of an addon. If you want to have it in there just say so and I will include it no problem :)
It appeard once more on accident in software because amazon fixed a typo in the article name and that avoids my filter. :D

If it doesn't bother you, then I would like to see it in the charts :) Thanks !

According to the regular updates, I don't have any problem doing it constantly. but because there are not significant movements between hours will do it twice a day (automatically in the morning and at the end of the day).  Reading a Marth respond helped me to put the formatting of the page in the script so the only thing I have to do is copy and paste in the html editor of the post. I will try to put the release date and find a way to know if it's in stock or not. Will love to hear from you how can the rotation of the games be (for example, GoW which was released a few weeks ago to have its known like 3 or 4 weeks post-launch ) and which games can be included in the script and how close to the release date.

Think it's time to move on to the May thread :)

DK performing so well makes me happy! If this game sells 2m this year alone, I think it's safe to assume they'll work on a new one for Switch. I'd prefer a 3D one, but would also be ok with a final game in the Returns series.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

It seems that Nintendo had onother good month.



Sorry wrong thread....
