I tried Excel, actually. The web app, anyway. I use it for some things, but I like that OneNote (and Evernote) lets you make checklists. I think Excel does too, but not the web app (or I haven't found a way); I don't use Excel enough to pay for it. Anyway, using spread sheets for videogames seems like a whole new level I'm not willing to venture in to.
Ultimately though, it's all tedious because I have to find information like release dates manually, when being able to access GiantBomb's database would be so much better. ...is there a way to tie GiantBomb's (or any database, like Moby Games') to something like OneNote, Evernote, or Excel?
