- [4.2.13] The date fields can now be filtered by a range of dates. The start and end date is separated by a pipe. Using one date will be considered as filtering for the exact date.
- [3.7.13] Removed companies from person resource call
- [3.7.13] The logic for video URLs will now follow these guidelines:
- Non-premium API users gets low_url and high_url for non-premium videos.
- Non-premium API users gets no video urls for premium videos.
- Premium API users gets the low_url, high_url and the masked hd_url for every video.
- Added comma-delimited platform list to game search results
- Added platform abbreviation to game resource call
- Added version tag
- Empty values will return null instead of an empty string
- Added sorting and filtering on the list resource calls; check out the docs for available fields. Filtering by words is greedy and case-sensitive. When filtering against 'ids', multiple ids can be separated by a |. Example for sort and filter:
- To sort by score descending, followed by the publish date ascending: http://api.giantbomb.com/reviews/?api_key=API_KEY&sort=score:desc,publish_date:asc
- To filter for PC games with an expected release year of 2014: http://api.giantbomb.com/games/?api_key=API_KEY&filter=expected_release_year:2014,platforms:94
- Making a singular call will require the resource's type. Calling the types resource will provide a list of types for each resource. For example, to get the game Eve Online, it would be: http://api.giantbomb.com/game/3030-14447/?api_key=API_KEY
- Added Youtube ID to video resource call
- Use page instead of offset to paginate through search results; extended search limit to 100
- Removed platforms from character resource call
What Is The Same...For Now
- Singular resource call will still accept just an id, which means http://api.giantbomb.com/game/14447?api_key=API_KEY will still work.
- Added legacy support for the old sort and filter.
- The above two will be removed in 2-3 months time.
What To Expect In The Present
Initially, the first resource calls will be slow and/or timeout due to the image resizing. But subsequent calls that return the same results will be faster.
A Look to the Future
Login support, CORS support, Reverse API, New Resources
When Will The Future Arrive?
Way, way far in the future, past the rise of Comic Vine.
