I've been wondering the same thing about minigames... Like, for example, if Shenmue contains a minigame of Space Harrier... Would that technically make it part of the Space Harrier franchise if it contains Space Harrier as a minigame?

So far, the new Dissidia: Final Fantasy appears to be developed by Taito and Square Enix, using a similar game engine to their previous arcade games, the Gunslinger Stratos series of third-person shooters, but with hack & slash instead of shooting.

Since previous arcade games from Taito and Square Enix were exclusive to Asian arcades, it's unlikely the new arcade Dissidia will be released on consoles or Western arcades, but we'll have to wait and see.

To add to this, I found out that Square Enix are also making another arena combat game similar to Dissidia, called School of Ragnarok, also for Japanese arcades. Along with Lord of Vermillion and Gunslinger Stratos, it seems like Square Enix has been focusing heavily on arcade games lately.

For example, comparing Resident Evil 2 today with Resident Evil 2 archived on March 2014 shows that the March 2014 version had links to 23 similar games, 16 characters, 14 locations, 166 concepts, and 51 objects, while the page today has links to 14 similar games, 14 characters, 2 locations, 34 concepts, and 15 objects. And this matches my memory of the page before, where I remember it having a lot more links than it does now. Looking through the history page, none of the edits since March 2014 show any removal of these links.

A few examples of these missing links include locations such as Abandoned Buildings and Police Station, concepts such as AI Companion and Backtracking, and objects such as Acid and Ammo. And when looking at the history pages for these articles, I can't find any edits showing the removal of Resident Evil 2. It makes me wonder if there was some kind of bug that removed those links?

I've noticed that in quite a few articles, most of the links (to locations, concepts, objects and similar games) that were there back in 2013 seem to have gone missing since then. And the history doesn't seem to show what happened to those links, who removed them, or how they were removed.

A few examples of such pages include Final Fantasy VII, Ocarina of Time, Metal Gear Solid 2, Resident Evil 2, and Resident Evil 4. I have tried to restore some of those links using Archive sites, but it's a very time-consuming process and doesn't cover most of the missing links that were there before.

Does anyone know what happened with those links? Was it some kind of bug? If so, is there any way to restore those links?

There's nothing wrong with asking hard questions and pointing things out, but there is definitely something wrong with the very aggressive, over-emotional and unprofessional way in which John Walker did it with his RPS interview.

Plantronics Gamecom 780. That's the one I use. It's great for 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound gaming.

I've never been a big fan of Peter Molyneux, but that RPS interview was absolutely terrible. John Walker was way too aggressive, over-emotional and unprofessional. In his desperate attempt at trying to destroy Molyneux's reputation, Walker not only destroyed his own reputation, but damaged RPS's reputation along with it.
