NEW D-LINK!!!!![edit]

I just saw the Gamescon trailer and theres a new D-Link!!! And it's PETE!!--P456 18:53, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Do you have a link to the trailer?--Xabryn 22:08, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Never mind I just saw it--Xabryn 22:24, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Ether that or it could be only in the European release. Nomura didn't mention a new D-link in the north american release.Edgeshadow

Actually it is a European Trailer. The GameCon 2010 is happening in Europe and if that's not true, look the the end of the trailer saying "September 10, 2010". It the European Release Date.

Then the D-link is not included in the north american release.Edgeshadow

Lol, know what's funny here? Didn't we all change the Command Style information based on gameplay and trailer footage? As I correctly recall, per usual, Speed Rave was changed to Fever Pitch in European gameplay footage. Funny, how no one "thought" about that one. Oh, wait. I know! There's TWO versions! So, is it safe to assume that the American version will be called "Pic de Fievre"? Well, golly gosh darn! Now it all MAKES SENSE!
I allowed that one to be changed because that article is already an unsourced mess, and since I don't have the time myself to reformat it, there's no point in trying to keep it to any such standard until the game is dubbed. Closing the door after the fox got in, and all that.
However, this article is accurate, as is the Deck Commands one, and there is absolutely no benefit in letting it get **cked all to hell by combing trailers for names that may not even stay the same.
Also also, there is no logic in lumping us as one multi-headed beast that always thinks the same.Glorious CHAOS! 16:50, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

Trailers are not at all reliable, Organization XIII at the Great Crest, Disney Castle in KH1, etc.

Yeah, but there's only one problem; those were in trailers released a year or more before the actual game, while it was still in development. BbS has been released in Japan, and right now, it's almost two weeks before its NA and EU releases; why put something in like a new D-Link in the trailer, so close to the release of the game, not to have it in the final product?

This is probably just feeding the troll, but NV, weren't you absolutely convinced that "complete being" was a canon term, and swore up and down that sources could easily be found? How's that turning out for you?


maggosh: I don't know, but we also have just over two weeks until we can do this whole thing with 100% reliability, and it's really just easier to do it then. For example, we have no idea what the Pete D-Link would even do, and we don't have a good picture, so how would we even cover it here?

Kryten, just to shut your sorry ass up, once again, I'll attempt to be reasonable and logical here regarding your retarded "somebody" terminology. 1-When was the first letter of "somebody" ever capitalized, such as Heartless, Nobody, or Unversed? 2-When was a singular, objective noun used in conjunction with "somebody", such as "the somebody", or "those somebodies." "A somebody" doesn't count since it's subjective.... 3-When was "somebody" ever referred to in a plural sense, such as once again, "those somebodies", similar to "Agh! Nobodies! NOOOO!" Exactly. Shut the fuck up. If you had half a brain, or a tenth of any real knowledge of the English language, you'd know that you are dead wrong. But you know what, keep thinking that you're right. Cause the dumber you look, the funnier it is for me, as well as...well, pretty much anyone else out there.

Ya'll are just too fucking stubborn and proud to accept the fact that I have never been wrong before. NEVER. And every fucking time, you end up humiliating yourselves. Get over yourselves, and listen to someone for once in your pathetic lives.

1) In CoM and Days, several times, used in conjunction with "Nobody", which had a similar, non-katakana version in that, and I've already provided the quotes and their original Japanese versions. 2) I never said that the term was 100% canon. I said that you were claiming that "complete being" was, and so far you haven't gotten off your lazy ass to provide a source, whereas we've done multiple interview-trawls to find whatever we can (Ex: "Other", "Human", "Somebody") 3) Again, in CoM. "Nobodies can't be Somebodies".

Seriously, Neutra, if you can't be civil, at least be, you know, right about what you're shouting. (Relevant history lesson - part of the purpose of politeness and civility is so that, if people ARE found to be wrong, they don't look like such an ass, and wouldn't get their head cut off by the nobility.) People who are both loud and hilariously wrong are just pathetic.

Well, in that case Kryten, that makes you hypocrite of the fucking century. You refuse to edit in legit facts because "trailers aren't substantial enough" or whatever, but insist on "closest terms", aka bullshit? Lulz

The Logic behind not including this is flawed at it's core. Let me list the reasons why it's a safe bet
1. The game comes out in ~2 weeks. The trailer isn't going to include beta elements at this stage
2. The Japanese trailer didn't have this. They wouldn't inculde something from beta and have it translated into english (Note aqua's command menu is in english, not japanese. If this was a beta element it wouldn't be translated.
3. They wouldn't add something to the English trailer, that was otherwise identical to the Japanese one, unless it was a new feature (Another example is the dude in the Org. XIII cloak. We know that's a bonus boss and was added for the English Release.) Lego3400 04:17, August 24, 2010 (UTC)

All three of your reasons are the same reason, and are all assumptions with no evidence. "The game comes out in just over two weeks" is not an assumption. You do realize that, just the FACT that they are changing things between releases means, "Yes, they ARE changing things between releases".
NV - you are so deep in denial that it is hilarious. Yes, using repeated terms with a clear context from several games is so much less reasonable than a split-second shot from a trailer in an unreleased game. Of course you're right, I was so blind.Glorious CHAOS! 23:50, August 24, 2010 (UTC)

It was in the trailer and it's way too close to the release date so they would use things that will be in the game.

And that pretty much sums up both arguments. One side says not becasue they insist that no trailer can be trusted 100# and the other side says that a trailer this close is safe to trust. I agree with the latter obviously. Lego3400 02:19, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

A wiki is not the same as a newspaper. We don't need to have information first, we need correct, verifiable information. Is it really that hard to wait two weeks?I think not.LapisLazuliScarab02:24, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

A bit yes. If we can't be consistent on what we can and cannot take from trailers we shouldn't take anything. IE: Revert Keyblade Glider to Rider ETC. Notice how backwards and hypocritical the arguments seem if you extend it to everything on the wiki, not just this one thing? Lego3400 02:26, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

You're missing the point. This is about whether we should use the trailers as sources or not. Thinking about it more, I think we should use them for story elements, which do not often change, but not for game mechanics, which often do. That's just my opinion, and we should move this to a forum. I'll do that.LapisLazuliScarab02:52, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

LapisScarab Xemnas (card).png Embrace... nothing! — 03:00, August 26, 2010 (UTC)
Xemnas's Replica Data KHIIFM.png Okay, we need to decide on the wiki's policy on using trailers, as you all can see from the discussions above. Here's where I stand: We should use trailers for storyline points (cutscenes, maybe for the worlds the caracters vist), but not for the game mechanics (D-links, name changes). This is because game mechanics tend to change during development, but storyline points do not.

Please keep the discussion civil.

Please stop doing that. I said discussion, not poll. A poll should be used if everything is in a deadlock and the discussion has come to an end. The discussion got side-tracked before, and now's the time to argue your point civilly. Wait on the poll for a bit.LapisLazuliScarab03:06, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

Thats an erase.Right?

Oh, you're bringing up Keyblade Glider: We absolutely should change it back. The original name was based on the official materials in the Ultimania, while the "new name" is based on a screenshot from the Command Board minigame. That is exactly the kind of reasoning that gets used if we jump on trailers like a lonely man at a cheerleading convention. It may very well be correct, but the point remains, it is not reliable - and when we have TWO FRICKING WEEKS to wait, there is absolutely no justification for jumping the gun. We are not a news site, we never will be. We are an ENYCLOPEDIA, devoted to providing IN DEPTH, VERIFIED info, and using trailers in this manner goes against that in every way.
Honestly, I would hesitate to use trailers for story info, either. Tons of story info was changed before BBS was released in Japan, and Nomura explicitly said that he would be changing it again for its North American release. Every time we have tried to post straight-up story claims before the game was released, we ended up with several errors. At best, AT BEST, we should be able to present info that has appeared in the promotional articles and released interviews, because the producers are standing behind that info as finalized.
However, for the English trailers, story info should be okay, assuming that the quotes won't change further. We've already gotten the Japanese game, and any quotes are basically translations, rather than truly new info.Glorious CHAOS! 04:11, August 26, 2010 (UTC)
