I'm...confused.

Is this actually a real thing? Does it really deserve a page? All I can find are the Twitter account the page mentions and some Youtube videos when I do a google search.

#2 Posted by AjayRaz (12428 posts) -

what in the world? how did you even find this on the site?

#3 Posted by Hailinel (24855 posts) -

@AjayRaz: It's on the New Additions and Recent Edits tabs of the GB games page.

Team Calleen, at the time of writing, consists of three teenagers, two of which were involved with the original web-series, which was the result of boredom. These three teenagers go by the aliases of xzbobzx (from the Netherlands), FoobyZeeky (a.k.a. Archimaredes, from Britain) and BlabVoid (also British).

Dude joined the site and made a page for his own game

This is pretty funny, it should probably be deleted but I won't complain if it isn't.

#6 Posted by FLStyle (4707 posts) -

I hope this is just a mistake on a wiki-mod's part and will be deleted ASAP.

hah! That's nuts!

You'd think if they went to trouble to hype themselves in such an underhanded manner they'd at least have their self referenced twitter and web pages up.

#9 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

It's a game that might never exist, about a webcomic nobody reads, made by a team that doesn't go by their real names and has no prior history.

So... do we keep these pages?

#10 Posted by Demoskinos (14842 posts) -

DELETE THIS GARBAGE.

#11 Posted by bobafettjm (1492 posts) -

Almost reminds me of that crazy game that had all kinds of licensed characters attached to it.

#12 Posted by DarthOrange (3864 posts) -

What? Nobody actually reads the wikis do they? If anything stuff like this keep them interesting. I think it should stay.

#13 Posted by fox01313 (5073 posts) -

Seems that until the thing comes out, might be easier to take the game page out due to the name. Seeing how it's a placeholder name in the dev description, it could have been called something else.

It's not even a game, it's just a series of GoAnimate vids on youtube.

When real games are being removed because they don't follow guidelines then this should definitely not stay.

#15 Posted by Bocam (3755 posts) -

Considering the fact that when you Google the game most of the results are from Giant Bomb, I think it should stay.

We have pages for minor characters with no last names, "supporting" characters who get one line of dialogue, and actually-released games that did terribly and that no one ever played, so... sure, why the hell not? :P

I don't think this game deserves a page on the site.

It's diminishing the quality of the database. It's hurting the site.

#21 Posted by gelatinabomination (184 posts) -

Yeah. I'm not going to say that Giant Bomb's standards for what stays and what doesn't is right 100% of the time, but this is crap and should go.

Yeah, Giant Bomb's a great marketing tool and we should continue to let developers use it in this manner...

#24 Posted by DarthOrange (3864 posts) -

@SeriouslyNow: No publicity is bad publicity. Also the sites database doesn't exactly scream quality, in fact the majority of it is pages with one line of text. We should leave the obscure would-be games with the hilarious names, it gives the site character.

Quality:

Here is one of my favorites:

"This sequel to the GBA first-person-shooter was named after the atrocious action movie inspired by the original game."

Subjective text should be rewritten. Pages for nonexistent games and stupid things like this Wanker Calleen should be deleted. Don't give this more credit than it deserves.

Subjective text should be rewritten. Pages for nonexistent games and stupid things like this Wanker Calleen deserve credit and should therefore stay on the site. The Giant Bomb wiki works hard to provide information on games that were, are, will be, and could have been so that those seeking such information can find it all on one comprehensive and all encompassing site.

As someone that has put in a lot of time and effort into the wiki to remove subjectivity from the wiki and requested poor pages for deletion, I find your statement in poor taste.

#29 Posted by emkeighcameron (1876 posts) -

It's crap with no purpose. Get a product in development with some money behind it and MAYBE I'll care. Get rid of it for now.

I imagined Don Draper saying this.

@DarthOrange: 'sawright.

#33 Posted by Grillbar (1838 posts) -

could be that Archimaredes was after some free wiki points and the mods diddent really pay any attention

I thought it was clever.

#35 Posted by Ketchupp (673 posts) -

I say let it burn!

#36 Posted by Slag (4418 posts) -

There's no evidence this game actually exists in any form correct?

if so then despite the moderately amusing entry, this shouldn't be in the wiki.

Seems pretty straightforward to me

#37 Posted by Village_Guy (2579 posts) -

Ha, he made a page for his own game. One of the mods wasn't paying attention when they approved this?

I vote we go kill it with fire, otherwise I'll begin making pages for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fan games - that ought-a get the nods attention.

Actually that raises a question. What does a game need to qualify for a page on the site?

Hey, if this guys stupid game flies, then I have work to do. I'm afraid there is nothing I can do about it my good man.

#40 Posted by onan (1286 posts) -

This reminds me of the Glass Cannon Games page I submitted for deletion last year. (Incidentally, they still haven't published anything, nor have they updated their site.)

I agree with , it should go.

#41 Posted by Slag (4418 posts) -

just noticed he created a page for the "developer" team calleen as well. That should go as well imo.

#42 Posted by Dalai (7031 posts) -

This game has failed Kickstarter written all over it. Get it the fuckshit outta here.

#43 Posted by drGiggless (222 posts) -

game sounds epic. instant buy.

#44 Posted by mracoon (4971 posts) -

I've marked both the game and the company pages for deletion.
