Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney[edit]

Thanks for fixing the error I made converting "Phoenix" to "Wright". Having never played the game (or any other!), I had no idea. I think you are right. In the world of fiction we can operate by different rules. Twofingered Typist (talk) 12:59, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

@Twofingered Typist: No worries! It is not like "Wright" is wrong, either - I just find "Phoenix" more appropriate in this context. Thanks for your work on the article, it's greatly appreciated.--Alexandra IDVtalk 13:14, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

I completely agree "Phoenix" is more appropriate. I'm done the c/e for now. I wonder if you would mind deciphering this from the Nintendo DS section, if you can?:

Takumi wanted it to link up with Edgeworth's disappearance in the second game, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney − Justice for All, so he thought about what thing would be the most damaging to Edgeworth's psyche. He decided on corruption and betrayal from within the prosecutor's office, despite the seriousness of the topic. The character Jake Marshall was created as a parallel to Godot, in an analogy between the Skye sisters and the Fey sisters.

In itself this makes no sense to me and it doesn't line up with the description of the fifth episode in the Plot section. Any ideas? If not I will follow up with the person who requested the c/e. Thanks again. Cheers - Twofingered Typist (talk) 13:46, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

I think the problem may stem from how it's difficult to summarize the Ace Attorney games' narratives, as each game contains 4-5 episodes rather than one single story, meaning a lot of information gets cut in our synopses. Unfortunately, it's been years since the last time I played "Rise from the Ashes", so it's hard for me to recall the plot. The Jake Marshall analogy - wow, this character really needs to be mentioned in the plot summary - is a separate thing from the police corruption, and refers to Godot, a prosecutor appearing in the third Ace Attorney game (which originally came out before the first game's DS version).

@Alexandra IDV: Thanks for this! I'll take it up with the requestor. Clearly more work to be done! Twofingered Typist (talk) 19:49, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Terry Bogard[edit]

What do you think of the article Terry Bogard? I think it lacks creation information about his original form (we only have Garou, KOF and SNK Heroines) as well as a copyedit. By the way, don't references 63 and 64 require the title of the episode? I tried searching everywhere but I couldn't find anything about his creation.Tintor2 (talk) 14:19, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

  • @Tintor2: I haven't actually read through the entire article and am not super familiar with Terry (I don't play fighting games much, and just found the inclusion of a female Terry in SNK Heroines interesting), but I'll try to make time to take a closer look at it tonight. What I can immediately say is that the reception section needs copy-editing. It is extremely long and largely in an "Outlet A said B. Outlet C said D. Outlet E said F." format.--Alexandra IDVtalk 16:22, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, I think the reception was added one by one as some SNK characters used to get little reception. I did try separating the last two paragraphs by Terry's role in spinoff and the reaction to his female form (kind of like how I reorganized Kazuya Mishima as well as some Devil May Cry characters). You think Jill Valentine is a good example to follow?Tintor2 (talk) 17:00, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
By the way, I took your advice and tried rearranging Kyo Kusanagi's reception to separate character, gameplay and other media.Tintor2 (talk) 17:19, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

Judge Eyes[edit]

Hi you left this in your edit summary when recreating the above article. "I understand that it could be unclear at first, for people who didn't read the news - I have now added an entry for Judge Eyes to the Yakuza series page now, however, and am now redirecting this to that sub-section specifically.".

You should not expect people to have read anything elsewhere than in Wikipedia to understand why you have created a redirect. A redirect that is not mentioned in the target is of very little use unless it is a misspelling. Someone who had read the news and followed this redirect to the article would expect to find some mention of it there, I searched and there was no mention of Judge or Judge Eyes hence my nomination for CSD and its deletion.

As per WP:RPURPOSE a redirect of this kind is for "Sub-topics or other topics which are described or listed within a wider article. (Such redirects are often targeted to a particular section of the article.)". To avoid confusion and a certain amount of work for new pages reviewers and admin it is preferable to do as you have now done and create the sourced mention in the target before creating the redirect. Cheers --Dom from Paris (talk) 00:41, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

@Domdeparis: Yes, I realize that I should've checked that it was mentioned in the series article first - I apologize for creating extra work for other editors, it was not my intention.--Alexandra IDVtalk 00:56, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
No problem I just wasn't sure from your edit summary if you meant that it shouldn't have been nominated for deletion or not. Cheers. Dom from Paris (talk) 01:00, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
