Just spent a few minutes making a calendar of release dates (UK only at the moment) for 2008. I'll probably get around to putting more global releases up eventually and arcade titles will be going up when they are announced =)

Much more snazzy than the one here.

Great work man. I don't really buy magazines and such so I never know what the hell is coming out until it turns up - I had no idea there was so much due in February / March. I shall have to finish off some of my tat games so I can trade them in for something shiny and new.

Really appreciate that you took the time to do this, as now I'll be able to plan ahead. Cheers.

A universal calender, if done right and accurate, would be a fantastic idea for any site. hint hint.

If you want me to add on Aussie releases then just ask.

And there is an option to embed the calendar onto the site, if Routine X doesn't mind adding it on somewhere. I suggested putting it on the existing calendar but you mauled that idea because the Upcoming Games list was supposed to be better =P

We should so substitute our current upcoming list with our own virtual calendar similar to this. I wonder if the coding would be hard.... mmmm..

Just embed the google one, no coding needed other than a blank page or a few pages for different regions.

We should do that. It's much easier then the current way to be honest. We would still need the current upcoming list for Q2,Q3,Q4 and TBA games.

Q1-4 games could just go at the ends of those quarters with a list of TBC games underneath, but either way could work so long as they get updated when they are announced. Just about to start on Yankiedoodle dates.

Very good idea Zef.
Congratulations on that one, I hate getting magazines just for the dates and stuff.
