Table too big[edit]

It goes off the page; additionally (this is why its a problem), the adbar runs over the top of it; content invisible! Oh noez! =O! --Notmyhandle 20:24, 1 March 2007 (CST)

Yea, I'm thinking of merging the rating sections to only have the images. Not sure what else to do. -- Prod (Talk) 20:28, 1 March 2007 (CST)
Theoretically speaking (because you have to assume that we actually had articles for 100% of the virtual console games,) couldn't users just get the ESRB information from the game's particular guide page? I mean, I know it's nice to have all of the information in one spot, but there's obviously a size constraint. Although, personally, it appears fine to me, but my laptop displays in 1280 x 800 resolution, so I gather that Notmyhandle is running in 1024 x 768, which is a fairly common resolution these days.

Actually, some of the games are so old they don't have ratings. It's also somewhat amusing to see the comparisons of the ratings (ratings creep) over the different consoles. -- Prod (Talk) 20:47, 1 March 2007 (CST)

The table is still overly large, as in on 1024x768 the contents go out of the border. Can we abbreviate the column headers for the yes/no status cells and then post a key at the top or bottom of the page? --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 16:48, 14 March 2007 (CDT)

That's probably a good idea... I sometimes forget that I'm working on a widescreen laptop.--DukeRuckley 11:19, 15 March 2007 (CDT)
I made some changes to the table last night, and it seems to scale down better than the other tables. It should just be a matter of copy/pasting the new heard, since the columns aren't changed. Good enough? -- Prod (Talk) 11:43, 15 March 2007 (CDT)
Looks good to me!--DukeRuckley 13:36, 15 March 2007 (CDT)

Name and Prices Differences[edit]

There are many name differences between Japan and English and I had been sticking with the English version (useful for NA, EU, and AU). However, I'm starting to think that maybe I should go ahead and drop Japan off the list because of these name changes. Some of them are really difficult to spot. Also, some prices change depending on whether it is NA, EU, JP, or AU. Maybe it would be a better idea to have separate pages for each area (a separate page for NA, JP, EU, and AU) kind of like wikipedia?? What do you all think?--DukeRuckley 15:09, 25 July 2007 (CDT)

I would personally rather drop the price. Alternate names could be listed in brackets after the regular name, though that solution doesn't please me >.<. -- Prod (Talk) 20:17, 25 July 2007 (CDT)
Another option would be to get rid of Japan entirely because we are primarily an English site (as of right now). This would pretty much eliminate the name problems for most games. As for prices, we could drop that too and I'd be fine with it. I would much prefer to keep a single table than to have multiple. When I have time, I'll change it and we can always revert it if we need to.--DukeRuckley 10:26, 27 July 2007 (CDT)

Smaller tables[edit]

This page is getting huge and is going to only get bigger. I'm wondering if maybe we can shorten the code by only including title, developer, and regions released. Ratings aren't important here because they will be on the game's respective main page anyway. Also, the points and accepted controllers are standard based on each system anyway. If we want to keep these, we may have to consider splitting it into subpages based on region. What do you guys think?--DukeRuckleyTalk | Contribs 12:43, 23 September 2007 (CDT)

If the Points and Controller types are standard, then we could either add the info as a comment to each game, or add a table at the top which lists all the required information. I'm more reluctant to remove the ratings, more for the sake of seeing the differences. -- Prod (Talk) 14:31, 24 September 2007 (CDT)

List is inaccurate[edit]

I noticed that the list includes titles that are not on the Wii Shop Channel. I also noticed that there are only 150 games in the category, but as of June there are at least 230+ games out now. Someone could be kind enough to edit the table below and make the list more accurate-- 23:04, 29 June 2008 (CDT)

Some of these games may only be released in certain regions (some games are released in Japan, but not North America). The list is also incomplete since games are only added as the guides for them are started. Unfortunately, we don't have guides for all the games, so it will probably never be a complete list. -- Prod (Talk) 23:12, 29 June 2008 (CDT)
