Updates stopped, full archive available

Thursday, December 25th, 2008

In case this isn’t clear enough, I’ve stopped the update script for the website; it won’t update stats or graphs anymore. My free time has been running thin for a while, and it has become increasingly difficult to monitor the website and correct mistakes in data reading when they occurred – which was too often, […]

Do not adjust your web set

Sunday, July 6th, 2008

Users may have noticed that, as of lately, some graphics are showing some pretty odd results, with certain games shooting high up on the chart or some other games disappearing. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a sign of the apocalypse, that the website or its database has been fucked up beyond recognition, or […]

Xbox Live top games of 2007

Tuesday, January 8th, 2008

Major Nelson – of the Xbox Team – has posted a few lists with the most popular games for Live, the online system used on the Microsoft consoles. The list is ranked by number of unique users (or sales, in the case of Live Arcade titles) and covers the entire year of 2007. No raw […]

On Call of Duty 4’s absence

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2008

Since a few visitors have noticed Call of Duty 4 hasn’t shown up on the site’s graphs, here’s a small update on the situation. Just to make it clear, the game is indeed doing very well online. If you check the ServerSpy or Game-monitor statistics, you’ll see it’s doing well enough to put it quite […]

Certain mods now listed as retail games

Monday, December 24th, 2007

I have finally changed the way some of the graphics are generated on the website: now, certain mods are treated as full games and listed on the games graphics. This move was needed because many full-fledged games based on the HL2 engine – games such as TF2, Counter-Strike:Source, Day of Defeat:Source, The Ship, Dark Messiah […]

Valve releases Team Fortress 2 statistics

Saturday, December 8th, 2007

In addition to other Half-life 2: Episode 2 statistics (released a few weeks ago), Valve now has updated their Game and Player Statistics page and added some Team Fortress 2 Gameplay Stats with some cool information such as class, weapon and map breakdown in a number of different parameters. There’s some really, really awesome information […]

New Steam statistics

Monday, November 19th, 2007

Valve – developers of games Half-Life, Counter-Strike and Team Fortress, among others – have recently updated their game statistics page. They added some very nifty gameplay statistics for Half-Life:Episode 2 and, more recently, they’ve also started a new edition of their player hardware survey which automatically gathers hardware and software data from Steam users through […]

Team Fortress 2 beta starts today

Monday, September 17th, 2007

Last week, Valve Software has started the preorder for the Orange Box on Steam, letting gamers buy 5 games – Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode One, Half-Life 2:Episode Two, Team Fortress 2 and Portal – for around $44.95. More importantly (for this website at least), preorders of the Orange Box would also allow players to […]

Valve now has a Steaming pile… of DOOM

Saturday, August 4th, 2007

QuakeCon 2007 – id Software’s annual gaming convention – is just wrapping up, and one of the biggest news coming out of there this year (and there were plenty!) is that most of their game catalog – from Comander Keen and up to Doom 3 – is now available for purchase on Valve Software’s Steam […]

Enemy Territory: Quake Wars beta numbers

Sunday, July 1st, 2007

The quasi-public beta for Enemy Territory: Quake Wars has started. While I usually try to refrain from posting information about small, limited betas (this one is limited to 60,000 users, with distribution taking place over 5 days), there’s some statistical information on the developer’s blog which can be interesting.

This website gathers data for various First Person Shooter games for PCs, and then build graphics with those numbers. This brings no answers, just questions. Where do we go from here?
