Modern Warfare 2 renamed to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Modern Warfare 2 should be an alias.

#207 Edited by bobafettjm (1455 posts) -

Dan Green should have the alias Jay Snyder which is what he was credited under for a couple of games.

can we revisit this one? Since before the game was released, I think something did change and the full title includes the Call of Duty name. TV Ads at the time advertised as such, the official site for the game uses it, Activision's site, Steam, every retailer and every standard retail boxed edition include it. ( thanks for reminding me)

The character Yuria's official English language name is Julia, as of Fire Emblem: Awakening, and the page needs to be renamed to reflect that.

Also rename Cellica to Celica.

I think Fake Television Newscast needs to be renamed by removing the "Fake" part. It's a videogame, everything's fake.

Yeah, fake would suggest that it's fake within the context of the game's fiction, which is wrong.

Yea I agree this needs to be revisited. Back then the assumption was that Modern Warfare was gonna be the name but they're still using Call of Duty as the main brand. It's like when everyone refers to Zelda games by their subtitle and never mentions the "The Legend of Zelda" part anymore. The games still get named with the full title in the wiki and everywhere. I see no difference to the Call of Duty scenario which has it's various sub-series that all retain the original name in front of their title.

Insane Asylum should be changed to "Psychiatric Institution". Insane asylum is an incredibly out of date term; after some searching it seems Psychiatric Institution the best contemporary alternative.

Posted this almost immediately (like, seconds) before ZombiePie's "everything done up to here" post, so these all got skipped as a result. Unfortunate timing on my part. All aliases, btw.

/Edit: And here's an extra one: Ghosts 'N Goblins -- Makaimura (Japanese name)

The Avatar character in Fire Emblem: Awakening should either be renamed Robin, or given Robin as an alias, since that's the character's default name.

there's also a redundant "endless ocean 2" alias that can be removed since that part is covered in the full EU title.

System Shock 2 was initially called Junction Point in the initial pitch. So, that should be set to an alias.

TAKEDOWN now has its final name (revealed via backer only update on kickstarter): TAKEDOWN: Red Sabre. Thus, page needs a rename.

Disgaea D2 should be renamed Disgaea Dimension 2. Disgaea D2 should be an alias.

Inazuma Eleven 4 should be changed to "Inazuma Eleven GO". The page was made before the final title was announced.

#241 Posted by DeF (4855 posts) -

Miiverse (concept) should be renamed to Miiverse Integration.

Reason: All Wii U games have access to Miiverse but only a few have dedicated Miiverse features integrated into the game itself (like the world map in New Super Mario Bros. U, showing Miiverse posts associated with certain levels). Simply adding Miiverse to every Wii U game ever seems pointless because of that and making the page about Miiverse Integration is way more useful for wiki purposes. It also makes it more clear when to add the concept to a game.

Rename: Valkyria Chronicles 3: Unrecorded Chronicles -> Senjo no Valkyria 3

This was never released outside of Japan, 'Valkyria Chronicles 3' is not an official name in any capacity. Putting it as alias is fine though. And although displayed on the cover, the subtitle "Unrecorded Chronicles" is not included on Japanese retail listings or databases.

#247 Posted by LordAndrew (14426 posts) -

Please add GNU/Linux as an alias for Linux because I want the page to be as controversial as possible.
