NF Magazine (Nintendo Force)[edit]

Hi! I'm cross-posting a notification to WT:NIN and WT:VG about the fact that I've started a page in our reference library for Nintendo Force (Nintendo Power's spiritual successor)! Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Reference library/Nintendo Force. So far I only have the latest issue, but I plan on continuing to subscribe and will document future ones as well. If you have previous issues feel free to add your name to the list and possibly to document the contents. Just in the latest issues there is a lot of content that be used to improve or create articles; Nintendo Force has already been vetted as a reliable source (WP:VG/S). The Nintendo fanboy in me is immeasurably happy. :D  · Salvidrim! ·  15:00, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Fire Emblem collaboration: anyone interested?[edit]

Note: This conversation is also in place at WikiProject Video Games due to the series' nature.

Hello, anyone whose interested. I've been doing steady work improving the various Fire Emblem articles, with the intention of bringing them to GA status, and creating a Good Topic. I've done rewrites on the main series article and Radiant Dawn so they remain GA, brought Awakening, The Sacred Stones and Path of Radiance to GA status, am in the process of bringing Fates to GA status (if someone will take it up as it's being hanging around for I've forgotten how long...), created and brought to GA an article for New Mystery of the Emblem, recently done extensive work on expanding Gaiden, Mystery of the Emblem and Thracia 776, and am in the process of doing a rewrite of Shadow Dragon. All that's left now for major work is Binding Blade, Rekka no Ken, Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and Genealogy of the Holy War. Here's my proposed future aim (image is, of course, just placeholder to help with illustration):

15 articles
Good article Fire Emblem

Good article Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light
Good article Fire Emblem Gaiden
Good article Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem
Good article Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
Good article Fire Emblem: Thracia 776
Good article Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade
Good article Fire Emblem (video game)
Good article Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
Good article Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
Good article Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
Good article Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon
Good article Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem
Good article Fire Emblem Awakening
Good article Fire Emblem Fates

Now there's still work to do on some of the others. Thracia 776 and Gaiden need plot synopses, and Mystery of the Emblem needs tidying. Then there's the sheer scale of the project. Even with those which are already at GA, it's still seven articles. I'm more than willing to do the work remodeling the articles for the more difficult things like development and reception and gameplay, but I'd seriously like help on things like the plots for those which have only cursory summaries. I'd also be more than willing for help with actually completing the GAs, as doing it all on my own would be a momentous task even without the editing work beforehand.

This is a long-term project. I've been at it for several months now since I got bitten by the Fire Emblem bug, but I realize that I'd dearly like some help in rescuing these long-neglected articles and giving them the recognition they deserve. I'd be willing to help someone else in return, as long as there was no conflict of interest with their project. So, anyone interested in helping here? --ProtoDrake (talk) 21:59, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Virtual Boy article's lead needs expansion[edit]

If anyone in this group is interested in improving an article but does not know what, Virtual Boy's lengthy article's lead needs expansion. Gamingforfun365 (talk) 20:33, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

Updating "Major game articles by franchise"[edit]

Hey everyone!

A new generation of Nintendo systems have come and gone, and in that, so have some new IPs for Nintendo, such as Splatoon. With a sequel on its way, Splatoon and other games should be given representation in this taskforce, as they are a part of the Nintendo library. There should also be an 'Other' or 'Miscellaneous' section, showing Nintendo's so-far one-off games, like ARMS.

I would do this myself, but I'm not exactly experienced with the source editor in terms of actual coding.
