News and Spotlights

March 11, 2008
The HGL has reached 200 games! I've decided this is not the way to go, since writing all of this in html doesn't make any sense, so I'm going to take some time off from the site, and learn php and sql, to create a proper database, and relaunch the website in its own domain. Use the contact form if you have some tips or would like to get involved. Until then, goodbye!

More additions to the HGU; the 14 Medal of Honor games are now up, which go along nicely with the Call f Duty series.
Contact form finally made, you can now use this for general contact, and use the errror/problem form to report mistakes.
Sorry for having taken so long for a new update, more coming soon.

The HGU Menu has changed; from HTML table to JavaScript. This makes it a lot easier for me to creat new pages, since I won't have to copy and paste the old HTML code every time. This new table should appear right underneath the title of the page, and features drop-down menus on mouse-over. Sorry to anyone using old browsers to view this site, but you will now need a JS enabled browser for navigation. As always to preserve the HGU history, I've kept a copy of the old home - Home (Second) - use this if you want, it will still work for some time, but I can't guarantee that the links will work.

Fixed The HGU's secondary domain; games.hgu.googlepages.com. There are pages that you could view from that domain, but if you typed in that address, you'd get nothing. Now you get a page that redirects to this page! All with the help of some simple JavaScript!

New addition: the Freebies page. Free games can be great, especially when they're legal! So, I decided to make a page dedicated to free history based games. Check it out! You just might find something you like! So far the most promising is 0 A.D., but there are some other good ones already out. Check out some of the Civilization style games.

September 26th, 2007
More additions; I've been tackling the Sid Meier's Civilization series for the HGL and it's series page, and boy is it big. At first I thought it was merely Civ I - IV with a few expansion packs here and there, but as it turns out Sid Meier and MicroProse had a falling out, causing some licensing issues. Well, there are several games with the Civ name, but had nothing to do with the actual SMC series. It took some time to decipher which was which, but it seems to be going smoothly now.

Also: new feature added; in my travels around the internet, especially on websites on community made games/mods I found it annoying whenever they didn't say when it was last updated (you couldn't tell if it was dead or not). So starting now I am adding "last modified" information at the bottom of each page.

September 12th, 2007
New feature added; related links. Now at the bottom of many pages, you will see some links to other HGU pages related to the page you are currently viewing. I hope this will add to the accessibility of this site.

September 10th, 2007
The second site bearing the HGU name has been put online. http://games.hgu.googlepages.com will be the domain containing all the info on video games, board games, creators, and franchises (series). This domain was created due to the lack of the ability to create sub-domains in Google Pages.

21 pages had major and minor updates today, fixing many problems, such as a lack of a homepage link. Not much content added however.
