At the risk of being a wang and asking for SEVERAL changes at once, the names for DJMAX titles would need to be changed. It turns out that the series is actually copyrighted under DJMAX (all caps, all one word) and not its current "DJ Max".

As such, the following releases would need their names changed:

Original (and incorrect) Names + LinksFixed Name
DJ Max Portable 2DJMAX Portable 2
DJ Max PortableDJMAX Portable
DJ Max Portable Hot TunesDJMAX Portable Hot Tunes
DJ Max FeverDJMAX Fever
DJ Max Portable 3DJMAX Portable 3
DJ Max Portable Black SquareDJMAX Portable Black Square
DJ Max Portable - Clazziquai EditionDJMAX Portable Clazziquai Edition
DJ Max TechnikaDJMAX Technika
DJ Max Technika 2: Crew RaceDJMAX Technika 2
DJ Max Technika 3: Crew ChallengeDJMAX Technika 3
DJ Max Technika TuneDJMAX Technika Tune
DJ Max RayDJMAX Ray
DJ Max TrilogyDJMAX Trilogy
DJMAX DJMAX Online

The Technika games currently have the subtitles in their names, which is shown in the games' splash screens but not in any of their official titling.

So sorry, but thank you! :')

This is a weird issue: how do we handle clones? Do they get their own page on the site, or are the addressed as aliases on the pages for the games they're ripping off? I only bring this up because of some Taxman/Pac-Man controversies.

Rename: Shingeki no Kyojin -> Shingeki no Kyojin: Jinrui Saigo no Tsubasa

its the full title

Rename: Tyler Gregory Okonma -> Tyler Okonma

didn't mean to get his full name when I submitted. add alias Tyler, The Creator as well

#665 Posted by BeachThunder (12577 posts) -

Can we rename Space Whale to Flying Cetaceans? I think this keeps the spirit of the concept (the movement of cetaceans applied to non-water settings), but makes it more encompassing.

There's a number of games that deal with flying dolphins - including the Liir, that are actually dolphins, as mentioned in the article. Also, there are a lot of games that deal with cetaceans that fly but don't fly high enough to be considered in space (Penny Arcade 4, Windforge, Dear Esteban, etc...)

#666 Edited by BlackLagoon (1502 posts) -

(rename) Toukiden -> Toukiden: The Age of Demons (official English name)

(rename) Kagero: Darkside Princess -> Deception IV: Blood Ties (official English name)

(rename) Orc Attack -> Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion (full official name)

Also, uh, how does the wiki feel about the title:

Daisenryaku Daitoa Koboshi Dai Niji Sekai Taisen Boppatsu! Sujiku Gun Tai Rengo Gun Zen Sekai Sen

...because that appears to be the full name of the game that's currently called Daisenryaku for Nintendo 3DS (working title). Does it fit, or does it need to be shortened?

#667 Posted by LentFilms (233 posts) -

"Kuusou Kagaku Sekai Gulliver Boy" on the Saturn is the same game as the one on the TurboGrafx-CD. So the page dedicated to the Saturn port should be deleted since it is unnecessary.

Fields of Glory -> "FOG" should be added as an alias.

FOG was so commonly used as an abbreviation that it even ended up used on the budget re-release box art, example of which can be seen here: http://www.mobygames.com/game/fields-of-glory/cover-art/gameCoverId,6394/

M.A.X. 2 -> the page should be renamed "M.A.X. 2: Mechanized Assault & Exploration"

M.A.X. 2, just like the previous M.A.X.: Mechanized Assault & Exploration showed both the abbreviation and full title on the box art, never just the abbreviation, so I think the page title should be changed to the full title as it appeared on the boxes (and M.A.X. 1 is already listed this way in the wiki):

#669 Posted by DarkShaper (1349 posts) -

(Rename) Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness -> Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness

There is clearly no space between full and metal on the game's box and PSN also uses "Fullmetal".

#671 Posted by fisk0 (4685 posts) -

Add the alias DeathDrome to Death Drome. The game's title is spelled both ways all over the place, though it seems to most commonly be written as one word, DeathDrome (IGN, Gamespot, the game box' back text, fansites and some other places write it his way, while the game's logo does have a very small space in between the words).

#672 Posted by Video_Game_King (36271 posts) -

I'm pretty sure Cho should have her name changed to Chiyo, as that's what's used in the game.

City Interactive is now officially known only as CI Games. I suggest changing the name to CI Games, with "City Interactive" as an alias.

A correction: The game is not called Persona 4 Ultimate. It is Persona 4: The Ultimate Ultra Suplex Hold. There's no "Ultimate" after the 4.

SNES dump. Aliases are for the Super Famicom (Japanese) version of the game unless otherwise indicated. Apologies for letting this get as long as it has:

@hailinel: I'll fix it, although, I was not the one who changed it. It was already like that before I saw your request.

Super Mario 3D Land -> SM3DL

Super Mario 3D World -> SM3DW

Kirby (tentative title) -> Hoshi no Kirby: Triple Deluxe

aliases

---

Also, I want to reopen the case for A Link to the Past (and the GBA port A Link to the Past & Four Swords) and A Link Between Worlds aliases.

Both absolutely should have aliases for ALTTP and ALBW. They are unquestionably common usage and even outnumber the incomplete LTTP alias by TWICE the amount of google results. Not having those as aliases does way more harm than good, considering how many games have aliases that are actually useless or redundant and these definitely are not.

So, please, add aliases ALTTP (and "ALTTP & FS") and ALBW to the respective game pages.

Hm notifications seem to be dead again. Anyway, if you look at the wiki page you'll see the JP logo from the JP Direct.

#691 Posted by bobafettjm (1487 posts) -

Star Trek should have the alias Star Trek Pinball. It is referred to such in only a logo that shows at the end of the reveal video, but on the rest of the information on their site and on the cabinet itself just refers to it as Star Trek.

@marino Please don't just ignore it. I provided valid reasons for these aliases to exist (even why they're more prevalent than the shortened version). Please add them. Or at least tell me why you don't see the benefit of having complete, accurate and useful data on these pages along with improved accessibility to them.

It's a small one but I noticed the page for the actor Nadji Jeter is misspelled Nadji Leter.
