Built-in web scraper for game info


Today I was able to work in a fully functioning web-scraper that can grab descriptions and artwork images for a massive amount of games on a wide variety of platforms by scraping the website.  You can modify your search string as necessary and you are free to choose the best available match.  Only missing information will be imported, unless you specify otherwise.  Below is a slideshow that shows how easy the built-in web scraping is to use.  All of the information (description, screenshot image, marquee image) for the game Duke Nukem 64 is scraped from on the fly.
