Can't open site, so yes, it's down.
And this happens very often.

You can use Arcturus (thegamesdb cache), cause it's a full copy of the DB, and it works faster.

Ok awesome man! Can you tell me how to go about doing this? How do I get Arcturus in Arc Browser so when I scrape it grabs the image from there?

Hmm I was already wondering why a lot of games couldn't be scraped. Will try again tomorrow

Arcturus (thegamesdb cache) - is a full copy, but updates comes with little delay.
It's not a big problem, cause most retro games that you're looking for are already there.
And only if you add game, or edit pics on gamesdb site, you will need to wait when arcturus will updates - day or two usually
