Someone Should Totally Update That Page

It's one of those sections that always falls behind it seems.  Then someone will ask about it and it gets updated, but eventually falls behind again.

Might as well get rid of it imo.  Does it get that many hits that it would be worth keeping?

It's one of those sections that is just absolute grunt work to upkeep.  I wish I had interns.

I think we might change it up so that we only have games with announced or expected US releases on these.

Well, at the least I think anything announced with a console's reveal should be scrapped/ignored unless something substantial is shown. We never saw Vandal Hearts DS, I'm pretty sure Persona 1's port wasn't the announced "Persona PSP", and it's been quite awhile with no sign of this Etrian Odyssey 3DS. Most likely a lot of these are just promises of support with a few random names some execs think MIGHT be worth developing, without any developers even initiating actual work on them.

I suggest writing a simple script that would make sure only elements with at least one valid date are displayed, that way, even if you forget to update it will try to keep itself clean.
