I noticed that the Japanese for "Ōkami" is left as is when translated in the article's title. Should it be translated to English (i.e. "Great God Chronicles: Tiny Sun " or "Wolf Chronicles: Tiny Sun ") as with the lead sentence of the Ōkami article? ~ Hibana 21:55, 6 September 2009 (UTC)
- Well, I don't think that Okami in the Japanese version was meant to be taken to absolutely mean "Great God" or "Wolf" but just as the proper name Okami (which, pun-wise, plays on those). --MASEM (t) 22:46, 6 September 2009 (UTC)
Problem with the 'Pre-release reception' section...
This section is placing over-emphasis on the opinions of non-notable online game reporters, as such there's no need and it's un-encyclopedic to have several sentences that start out "So-and-so hates that it wasn't on the PS3", "So-and-so fears they may not like this game". If the author of the opinion is non-notable there's no reason to mention him by name. If an opinion is expressed across several online game magazines--not just one non-notable author--than you should have a sentence or two expressing the opinion, add the sources at the end, that's it, i.e. ""Disappointment has been expressed that the game was not released on the PS3 console(source)(source).""
The section is way too long at the moment, mostly filled with opinions from people that don't really matter. For example, Luke Plunkett is treated as the end-all for opinions of the game. First he hates the platform, then he feels the game might not even be worth it, then it melted his heart. Luke Plunkett is non-notable, there should be no reason to be so over-citing his opinions on the game. The fact that a Kotaku editor expressed concern for the platform is notable (as that opinion is also expressed in other articles). The fact the Luke Plunkett personally didn't think it would be worth it but it eventually melted his heart doesn't matter, is non-notable, and is un-encyclopedic to include in the article. That was just an example of problems that plague that section. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 21:58, 26 September 2009 (UTC)
- It's an understandable complaint, but at the same time, these opinions are not necessarily non-notable. They're not statements of facts, merely opinions, and are used to fill out the section. Inevitably, they'll be replaced by more notable opinions, but we're not citing Luke Plunkett three times, we're citing three opinions on three aspects of the game that happen to be his. It's not as if we're citing random bloggers or forum posts, but editors for reliable sources. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler!

- Oh, wait, I see. I thought you were calling for these citations to be removed from certain editors, but were calling for less emphasis on declaring who said it. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 23:57, 26 September 2009 (UTC)
Now with confirmation of Western release, and that it appears to only be called "Okamiden" in the West (I need to double check if it uses bar-O or not), should we consider moving this page back?
