A New Character[edit]

I have heard that Snow Villers will have a part in the game in a new outfit. I feel that this is relatively important to the game, since Snow is a pivotal character in the XIII trilogy (I mean, it says Hope is part of it). Could anyone give me a reference that does not have attacking cookies as part of it? I did find something about it on Siliconera, and I had a narrow escape. --ProtoDrake (talk) 19:55, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

Development section[edit]

Could people give me the necessary extra references to create a 'Development' section for the game? With all the news about the group reaching a 'milestone' in terms of development, I think a section should be added. --ProtoDrake (talk) 22:19, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

Updating the Plot[edit]

Seeing that the game has already been released in Japan, surely the plot is known by this point. As such, why exactly have the new details not been filled into the plot section yet? I don't have time to do it myself, however. I imagine that the hardest thing would be finding the reliable sources, seeing that its not been released in the English translation/localization yet. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.151.171.188 (talk) 15:44, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

I'll be honest: Part of my motivation for this GAN is not altruistic, but that I'd like to speed along my two GANs being reviewed by sanding away some of the backlog so I can get on Wikibreak before too long. That being said, that's no cause for dishonest reviewing. So here I go. Tezero (talk) 03:03, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

  • The image of Toriyama and Kitase is not necessary to understand the game, which would be fine, but it's copyrighted and the FUR is severely lacking.
  • I notice some unpleasant decapitation-related edit wars from a month and a half ago. Were those related to issues you expect to crop back up? (Stability; I have to ask.)
  • Prose looks pretty good; I've made a few minor corrections so far.

Tezero (talk) 03:18, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

  • "darker and more vulnerable character" - How does this contradict "stoic"?
  • Made some more minor corrections to the prose.
  • There's inconsistent linking in the references, i.e. some sources, like Joystiq, are linked more than once but not every source is linked all the time. Not an issue for GA, but I'd prefer it be fixed.

And... I think that's it. I'll put this on hold. Tezero (talk) 04:26, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

I went through the article and the references: as far as I can tell, now the only linking issues are with sites that don't have articles and so can't be linked. I have also removed the image from the development section, and reworded that "darker and more vulnerable" sentence to be less specific while keeping its information valid. As to the edit war, that stemmed from the mixed reception the game received, and seems to have calmed down now. Just for the record, all the XIII game articles have been subjected to this at one time or another. Oh, I also archived a reference from Edge, as I heard the site was to be taken down soon. --ProtoDrake (talk) 07:20, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Looks good. Let's do this. Tezero (talk) 14:31, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
