All added, two comments:

Archon: also added 'Board'

Civilization: How is this 'Historical'?

Civilization isn't historical by definition but there are historic persons, buildings and even the techtree is kind of historical correct. If you have a original copy with the "big" manual it's getting even more historical because there are many background informations in there.
It's a kind of borderline case. ;)

Alright, I think we don't really need to argue about this. This isn't the first borderline case and it won't be the last one. Added.

The wanted games page now lists games which have been linked to in either a comparison or a review, but which aren't on the site yet. This listing will automatically update itself as either new games are linked or new games are added (filling 'requests').

Nice Feature! But there is a litle error in the listing. The list says a review of Archon Ultra is needed. But in the review of Dark legions there is Archon (C64) mentioned as comparission.

Yes, but in the review itself, Archon Ultra is referenced.

My fault. Next time I read more carefully before I complain. ;)

Ok, to make this completely clear: The algorithm searches comparisons and reviews for game references which can't be resolved in the database. For comparisons, it's obvious where the supposed game names are. In reviews, not every word is used as a potential game name, but just parts which have been classified as a game link by the reviewer. I sometimes do that in spite of the game not being on the site - it doesn't hurt (as you can see in the Dark Legions review) and if the game appears on the site later, the link will just magically appear without me doing anything.

Stranded kids
Which kind of theme a survival game could have?

Depends on the game. Some of them are focused more on fighting others on solving puzzles. Which title do you mean? Maybe I can help out.

I guess he's refering to this one ('Stranded Kids' is listed as an alternate title).
