Please rename the Kamaitachi no Yoru page to "Banshee's Last Cry" since that is its official English name and add the previous title as an alias. Thank you.

Wait really? That's the English name they're going for? That's bizarre.

Speaking of English names, Bills --> Beerus (official English name)

Patric Zimmerman should have Patric Laine added as an alias, since he's credited as such in the original Metal Gear Solid.

Please rename the company Caual Labs to "Casual Labs", as this idiot left the S out of Casual when adding the company to the wiki last night!

Sorry.

Erunaaku No Zaihou should have Elnark no Zaihou as an alias, since that's what it's listed under on GameFAQs.

Denpa Ningen no RPG 3 -> rename: The Denpa Men 3: The Rise of Digitoll

move current title to alias, delete current alias because it's now part of the proper English title

@halberdierv2: As far as I can tell, Operate Shooting Star never received a western release, and as such is correctly listed under its Japanese name. It should not be renamed.

@blacklagoon: sorry, that was a mistake, I meant to add that as an alias. I fixed it.

Aliases: Armor Points -> Armor Percentage, Armor Meter

Armor Points aren't the same thing as percentage or meter. We have separate concept pages for Hit Points and Health. So if Armor Points gets those aliases, we should make Hit Points an alias of Health and drop the Hit Points concept.

Like I explained in the deck, the concept is for games that have a number or percentage of armor that acts like a secondary HP pool. It's not about Armor points as an RPG stat, which I think is more often called something like "armor rating".

Perhaps the page should be renamed if there is confusion with the RPG concept.

EDIT: I think I see what you're driving at now.

The reason I made Armor Points is the same reason Hit Points exists: there is a broader concept that includes it (Body Armor or Health) but this specific approach has a distinct history. Armor points/percentages/meters are all part of the same trend started by Doom (I think?) where armor is a resource that depletes. Hit points are indeed different from health meters and such, but in terms of armor there is no difference worth noting between meters or percentages and straight numbers.

Alias time: Little Red Hood --> Black Forest Tale (this is the name used in the handheld versions)

Chuck Norris Superkicks --> Kung Fu Superkicks: Pursuit of the Ninja (Telegames rerelease name)

Name change: Ei Yotsuki --> Ay

Ei is another way of reading his name in kana, but Ay is officially how it's spelled in the western releases of the games. I think the English-language manga by Viz might use Ei, but don't quote me on that.

The Yotuski part doesn't make any sense, since there's only one member of the Yotsuki clan shown in the series, and he was such a minor character that he didn't even get a first name.

Here's a big one.

Windows Phone to Windows Store

Since the games on the Windows phone are now also on Windows 8 OS, Windows Phone does not work and the marketplace for apps on Windows is called Windows Store.

I know IOS is categorize by Phone, Tablet, and Ipod but that's a poor system since most games are on Phone and Tablet and in the near future more devices will probably play the same games.

I've not touched the Windows Phone platform. As far as I know the Windows Phone Store and desktop/RT Windows Store are still separate entities.

I know that not all Windows Phone apps are the same as the Windows 8 apps. I still use a Windows Phone 7 and a lot of what is there is not on Windows 8.

(rename) Arcadias no Ikusahime -> Battle Princess of Arcadias (official English name)

(rename) Makai Senki Disgaea 4: Return -> Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited (official English name)

(rename) Super Dangan Ronpa 2: Sayonara Zetsubou Gakuen -> Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Dispair (official English name)

(rename) Kami Jigen Idol Neptune PP -> Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection (official English name)

(rename) Dangan Ronpa -> Danganronpa (official English spelling)

Anyway, I the Japanese titles should be kept as aliases. Marino always does this, but other mods don't, so I guess I should mention it here.

Kwirk should have the alias Puzzle Boy (and perhaps Puzzle Boys), since that's the name it was released under in Japan.

Naminé should have Namine as an alias, because not all of us can type those accents (fucking Chrome).

@video_game_king: I think that's more a bug in the search. Since the redesign it should handle accents and other character variants transparently without the need for aliases.

That's not the case, though.

@hailinel: Well, I admit I don't have any experience with exactly how the search handled this just prior to getting all messed up due to the recent code merge. I do know I tested it on the Seaserpent beta site before the CBSi redesign launched (I did in fact post about that on the very first page of this thread), and there character variants were handled transparently by the search. That would be the preferred behavior IMO, making this a bug.

Moderators like Marino are still adding unaccented aliases to character pages that they themselves create. And even if it is a bug that unaccented characters aren't recognized, that doesn't negate the need for the aliases until a day such recognition actually works.

EDIT: And now for an actual request of my own.

Rename: Samanosuke Akechi > Hidemitsu Akechi

The character Samanosuke in the Onimusha series is based on the historical figure Hidemitsu Akechi, who appears in other games under his real name. "Samanosuke" is just a corruption of his imperial court title "Sama-no-suke". Samanosuke Akechi should remain an alias.
