Underworld should be changed to Underworld (Fallout) 
 
As it is, other games are linked up to it, but the whole page is clearly about the Fallout 3 locale. With the name changed the more general Underworld page can be made to connect games with actual underworlds (in the mythological sense) to it.

Mansemat should be changed to Mastema, as Mastema is his official localized name. Per the switcheroo, Mansemat should be kept as an alias.

Armor Ambush -> Armor Battle
(Since Armor Battle's currently an alias, which is my fault for making an improper request some time ago, once the rename is done Armor Ambush should become an alias instead.)
 
Armor Battle is the original name for this game -- Armor Ambush is the name given to the Atari 2600 port that came out some time after Armor Battle's Intellivision release. It was one of a few "M Network" titles, which were Atari 2600 ports of Intellivision games created by APh Technological Consulting after the company realized they had gotten a raw deal on their initial contract with Mattel. In fear of the ported games being considered inferior and reflecting poorly on their original counterparts, most of their names were altered slightly for the M Network releases, this being one such instance.
 
This Intellivision Productions page discusses the whole deal with a little more detail and clarity.
 
I'll have a proper write-up for the Armor Battle/Ambush page very soon, since it's supposed to launch with the XBLA Game Room tomorrow (under the name Armor Battle).

I think that Deliberately Retro should be renamed to Fauxback. It's currently an alias for it and it's just a much better/catchier term. It's like saying NosCon versus Deliberate Nostalgic Hooks. Plus, Drew just used it in the the Cave Story quick look caption. Just a thought.

Actually, no.  Dr. Eggman was always his name in Japan, and they just dropped the Robotnik name to call him by that.  It's no different than when Nintendo stopped calling Peach Princess Toadstool.

@Hailinel:  Yuji Naka, the lead programmer from the original Sonic the Hedgehog, has stated that Dr. Robotnik is his real name while Dr. Eggman is his alias.....it should be changed.....and Dr. Robotnik is what he is most commonly referred to in America and last time I checked this is an American site....also his real name is Doctor Ivo Robotnik.....so I see no reason why it shouldn't be changed.

@Unknown_Pleasures: I don't think it needs to be renamed as Robotnik may be his real name but his character name in every Sonic game for I think the last decade has been Eggman. We have a section on the page for real names when a character is more widely known by a different name and that already says Robotnik.

@mracoon:  The real name section is used for the characters real name which mostly includes the characters last name in addition to the first name not the more widely known name.....I think the actual name of the page should go to the most recognized name of the character and the most recognized name of Dr. Robotnik is Dr. Robotnik and that's what he was called in the first game in America along with many others that followed....I see no reason why he should be called Dr. Eggman....Dr. Eggman should be an alias.
