Some ALIASES for Japanese developers...

Kotaro Hayashida often used the alias "Ossale Kohta".

Koki Sadamori almost always used one of several aliases - "Alien Sadamo", "Sadamorian" and "Sad" are three of them.

I've made this an alias instead. We don't tend to use macrons in romanized titles on Giant Bomb unless it's officially written that way on the box (Ōkami being an example).

Done up to here.

Name change

Daranza --> Taranza

Current page name was a poor romanization before the game released. His name is Taranza in all regions.

Alias

Shadow Dedede --> Black Dedede

Black Dedede is his Japanese name

Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land gets localized by XSEED as -> (rename): Harvest Moon: Story of Seasons (keep old name as alias)

Correction.

The game is called just Story of Seasons. "Harvest Moon" is not part of the name because it is a trademark owned by Natsume. That being said, "Harvest Moon: Story of Seasons" should be an alias.

Please change Demo Cart-1 to Democart, see also the box art I uploaded for comparison.

Please change Videocart-8: Mind Reader, Nim to Videocart-8: Magic Numbers and add Videocart-8: Mind Reader, Nim as an alias.

Rise of Nations should probably have an alias for the Steam release titled Rise of Nations: Extended Edition. Also while we are at it the expansion Rise of Nations: Thrones & Patriots should probably have the alias of Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots. The reason I bring that up is I had typed it out spelling the word "and" and was not able to find it in the search without changing it.

Rename The Rogue's page please

http://www.giantbomb.com/rogue/3005-4142/

While she was known only as Rogue in the original Diablo, Diablo 2 retconned her into "Blood Raven" as a super unique miniboss encounter and according to the Diablo series sourcebook released last fall the Book of Tyrael her original name was intended to Moreina.

my suggestion is to rename the page Blood Raven and use Moreina in the real name slot. This will give her a more distinctive name and be less confusing as her name also was the same as her class.

Actually, there is already a Blood Raven page. So maybe just delete the Rogue page and add aliases to the Blood Raven page?

The following characters need aliases:

All of these aliases are the secret identities of the characters. The last three have a couple of valid spellings and I don't know if it's really considered official one way or the other. Cursory Google searches don't lead obviously one way or the other.

#1078 Posted by BeachThunder (12087 posts) -

Given that Axe refers to a specific line of products, it should be changed to 'deodorant'; it is already listed as an alias, but it should be the main name.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt -> alias: The Witcher III: Wild Hunt

The final logo uses a III but CD Projekt & GoG etc still refer to it as Witcher 3.

Rename: Robotube Games, LLC -> MiniVisions (keep original as alias)

This is part of the Gaijin Games rebranding.

#1083 Edited by ReverendHunt (351 posts) -

Name change

J Legend Biography ---> J Legend Retsuden

I suppose J Legend Biography could be an alias since it's a rough translation

Ядерный титбит --> Yadernyy Titbit

Potential alias: Nuclear Titbit

As far as I know, all game titles should be in latin/western/English script. No cyrillic, no kanji, no katakana, etc.

I would say keep Ядерный титбит as an alias, too, so someone would be able to find it that way.

Rename

Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Patriots

to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege

Are you sure that makes sense? Shouldn't Rainbow Six Siege but an entirely new page onto its own? Are we sure that Siege is what became of Patriots - and, if so, are the two projects similar enough that it would be more appropriate to retitle the Patriots wiki page rather than create a new one for Siege?

#1090 Posted by BlackLagoon (1457 posts) -

@snail: @reckless_x: Well, Ubisoft seems to have been a bit unclear on what was happening to it in the years since the reveal, but the official story now is that Patriot was a PS3/360 game that was canceled, while Siege is a new title built from the ground up for the PS4/One.

So we should just leave two separate pages for both games, as it currently is, and rename Patriots to append "(cancelled)" at the end of the title (though by looking at the Canceled Games concept page, it seems like that initiative fell through?).

I'd say we add (cancelled) to Patriots and start anew for Siege

Rename: Fantasy Life Link! -> Fantasy Life (keep current name as alias, obviously)

this is the version that is being localized, similarly to what happened with the re-release of Bravely Default where we now have two games with the same name in the wiki.

rename: Project Giant Robot -> Project Giant Robot (Working Title)

forgot the add that when submitting.

KasekihoRider MugenGear -> rename: Fossil Fighters: Frontier (keep current name as alias)

rename: Codename S.T.E.A.M. -> Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.

alias: Code Name: STEAM / Codename: STEAM

Wizro -> rename: Wizzro

Wizzro is the English spelling seen in the E3 demo of the game. Keep Wizro as an alias as it's the Japanese spelling.
