Posted under news, thank you, Playthrough, Oxenfree, submissions, focus, Playstation 2, PS2

We interrupt your regularly scheduled program to bring you this month's edition of RF Generation's Site News!  In this issue, we celebrate a recent award bestowed upon our site, announce our January 2018 community playthrough title, check in on our 2017 Pain Yourself With Submissions Contest winner, and of course, thank those members who sent in submissions to our site and registered approvals during the month of November. We are changing our submission "focus" again, so stay tuned to the end of our broadcast for more details.  Thanks for keeping it on Channel 3!     

REMEMBER: If you have any news about upcoming events or topics that you think the site needs to hear about, please PM singlebanana and put "RFG Site News" in the subject line.  Who knows, maybe your news will make our front page!



Recently, our site was recognized by Feedspot as one of the Top 75 Retro Gaming Blogs and Websites For Retro Gamers.  Among this list of fantastic content providers, RF Generation was ranked no. 21!  This recognition is a testament to the fantastic efforts of many of our members who write articles, create videos and podcasts, edit and approve content, and work diligently to keep our site functional and user friendly. Thanks to all of you who work so hard to keep our database among the best out there and to those of you whose content helps grow our knowledge of our favorite hobby.  CONGRATULATIONS!



Twenty-seventeen was another banner year for site playthroughs. GrayGhost81 and I were privileged to play and discuss some incredible games over a great variety of systems and in was that year that saw both of us push into the modern era with our purchases of PS4s.  In going into 2018, we plan to continue both trends and hope that many of you will join us again on another exciting gaming adventure! 

We have decided to start the new year off with a dark, mystery adventure title. Night School Studios' debut title, the haunting, 2-D adventure Oxenfree from 2016, is available on many platforms including: Steam, GOG, Xbox One, the Nintendo Switch, and a Limited Run Games physical edition for the Playstation 4, which is still reasonably priced on the second-hand market (No, really! Ask singlebanana.). Join us in January as we venture to uncover the mysteries of Edwards Island in this stylish, indie gem.

We hope that you are as excited about this pick as we are, so be sure to grab yourself a copy today! Also, please join in to discuss the game by signing up on our Oxenfree discussion thread located HERE.



BEHOLD! Site member Bear78 basking in the glory of his PS2 Japanese shmup and his RF Generation ringer t-shirt.  Could this be YOU in 2018??



While November saw some cooling temperatures, there was nothing cold about our submissions for the month! Last month, we topped September's mark of 4,828 submissions as site members contributed a total of 5,042 submissions to our database!  Of these additions, 4,962 were game submissions and 80 were hardware items. Of this total, 3,149 contributions were new images and 3,110 of these images were game submissions. A big thanks to all who submitted items to our database and to those who reviewed them all for the month of November! We appreciate your efforts in making our database and community a great tool for our users.

Our top submitters (those with a minimum of 50) for October were:

Let's keep those submissions coming. Our special focus for the remainder of December will be Playstation 2 scans. Yes, there are many box, manual, and game scans for this console that we do not have!
