Lostmediawiki opinions

Postby myloch » Wed Dec 27, 2017 3:55 pm

In lostmediawiki for quite some time and it has been a bit of a letdown: they are far too obsessed in finding lost video clips, unreleased demos and crappy pokemon and spongebob things and they basically don't give a s**t about lost asian videogames (aka the majority of medias I'm looking for) :roll:

Well, can't really blame them, films/clips/this kind of media has always been their main point of interest. I've used to be active on the wiki earlier (around 2013-2014), when they were still hosted on Wikia, wrote a few articles which were probably lost (good thing, they were terrible), and there was very little content about video games back then - lost films, documentaries and series episodes media were and still are the big thing.

When I could've anon-posted there I've provided some trivia infos regarding Hong Kong 97. Even though its focus on games isn't as high, the site itself is still a valuable info-hub IMO, and it always brings me a smile or two whenever I find something of interest :up: :D

I'm a disappointed about the whole LMW thing, They have a well-organized community but they only focus on finding things that are not really interesting (Like dubs from TV series, old commercials, TV series for childrens, or deleted YouTube videos) Of course there have been some good exceptions (Like those Osamu Sato lost audiovideo works). Its sad to see how little importance that community give to old obscure and lost videogames.
Months ago I read on the LMW webpage about the existence of an old JP Fan game released in early 00s. (which is supposed to be lost), It took me a week to contact the dev`s and get a lot of information about that game, one of the dev even said that he was going to do his best to get a copy of that game for me as soon he had free time (I still have contact with him).
So basically, if the LMW Community had more interests in finding lost games then, they would ... so old spongebob commercials are more interesting i guess. haha

Single evening spent compiling this list on what LMW failed in noticing for certain PC titles:

Arnold Palmer Tournament Golf - :thanks: to exoscoriae :D
College Terra Story - I made a Chatango account for the sole purpose of leading them to Nemo838; this was figured on their own way after removing Chatango from their site :omg:
Dan Burry - :thanks: to Ozymandias :D
Dinosaur Detective Agency - :thanks: to Dimouse :D
GhostBlood - Another title I've found and noted @ Chatango, but nope (it'll be a cold day in hell before you see me with an actual Discord account, let alone a two-step one) :omg:
Golf's Best: St. Andrews - The Home of Golf - :thanks: to exoscoriae :D
NightStuD - failing to note that it's not a Level Demo but a Trial Demo (full shareware), as in just needing a keygen ('cause HWID lulz) :roll:
Peter Box - nothing on RhymeKidder's efforts, I see :-x
Putty Squad - pure negligence on their side; the DOS build can easily be found online now, here's a mirror :thanks: to exoscoriae :D

Well these titles (and the Wiki's sort of incompetence) ought to be noticed now me thinks (even LW and Old-Games.RU did this cataloguing part better :wink: ) :lol:
