Duplicate game entries

Just noticed these:

The Eternal Night http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/2003/
The Eternal Night http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/2004/
The Eternal Night http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/2005/

(2003 doesn't have the screenshot so please keep 2005 and get rid of the other two.)

No need to blame anyone, there has previously been a bug in the games page that would show an error message when creating a new DB entry. This was confusing and might have caused people to create several entries unintentionally.

I removed the two redundant entries.

I wasn't blaming anyone, it was just a dumb attempt at humour... :-[

Yeah, those "Btoooom!" entries don't even have a download link (there is something about emailing the dev to get a download link, but that's nonsense and not what the database is for) so I've disabled them both for the time being.

As for "Seasons Greetings 2002", I've disabled the entry for the Italian translation, as all translations should be included in the original release (or in an update). They don't require individual database entries.

Should all be sorted now.  Sorry it took so long!  I also ran a quick database search to find any identical entries, and all the ones found had already been disabled.
