Why didn't they go with "WikIcarus"?

I'm glad they didn't. D: I hated the name "WiKirby", I'm glad IcarusPedia didn't do something so dumb too.

I thought WiKirby was a good name. I don't think WikIcarus would have worked though. I do like it when wikis don't go for the plain "<series name> Wiki" though (just as long as it is obvious what it is about).

Are you going to do these horrible puns when ever a new wiki joins?

WikiIcarus is still a bit iffy. I'd prefer Wicarus.

It's trom's tradition. Surely its better than the old "<wiki name> joins NIWA" or "<wiki's subject> wiki joins NIWA".

As part of my new reign of tyranny on Bulbanews, I've instated a pun quota. Anyone who writes less than three punny articles a month is fired.



You better watch out, @adyniz...

Three games is enough to warrent a wiki really I mean Pikmin had only to but they had a bunch of text in the logs and such to justify it.

I also thought "Wikirby" is an odd name, and while I did expect an Icaruspedia thanks to the new games, I didn't guess it at all for some reason. I'm going to guess the new 'pedia next week will be about Rhythm Heaven, 'cause they also have three released games.

Thanks for reading.

It's doubtful that Ice Climbers will get their own wiki, considering that they only have one game dedicated to them (the titular Ice Climbers), as their only other games are actually crossovers, like the Smash series. I also don't see how much stuff a single game would cover, considering the gameplay is really simple. If they're going to be more in-depth about the Smash series to beef up their wiki, it's better to leave it to the Smash wiki for that. In fact, I think Ice Climbers are popular only because they are Smash fighters. Balloon Fight deserves a wiki more, because at least they have more games under that name (the original, GB's Balloon Kid and Tingle's version).

Of course, there's a chance I may be wrong, but I think that if they're going for Ice Climbers, they might as well cover the other NES classics along with them, like Balloon Fight.

Oh, there's another possibility of a Nintendo franchise as a wiki: Punch-Out.

Thanks for reading.

I was just kidding about the Ice Climbers, though they do need another game, maybe with 3D Mountain climbing... and stuff.

Suffixing “pedia” is plainly unoriginal when not appended directly after a dominant vowel (such as Bulba or Wiki), muchless after a quirky consonant like S, thus WikIcarus would've worked way better. 'Nuff said bro :3.

Wikiceclimbers...er... climbs?... into NIWA.
Since chances are that I'll be writing the next article, I should start planning what horrific pun I'll be using. However, I'd like to do something different this time rather than just a method of moving.

So the next one is Dragon Quest Wiki. That was unexpected because it's not a Nintendo franchise, but I think it's a fine addition to the ever-growing Alliance!

That's it for now.
