Wikipedia notability

The newly created https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talon_(video_game) page is in danger of being removed for lack of notability! Perhaps some folks here could pitch in and populate the page with notable entries. One person already tried to remove it due to being 'unpublished', well so is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_citizen , and it doesn't even have a demo! I think adding that it has expansive indoor/outdoor gameplay would help, much larger than Descent3 I do believe.

Personally I look forward to Talon more than Star Citizen. Framerate is very important for action games, and Talon is top-notch in the framerate department! Generally speaking if you go crazy in the graphics department framerate usually suffers.

Re: Wikipedia notability

I totally agree Talon game deserves more and more publicity. My thought is that in Wiki pake there should be text containing words "Descent game", "Forsaken game", "Terminal Velocity game", so search engines can catch up with that when somebody searches Internet for "Terminal Velocity game remake", "Forsaken game spiritual successor", and similar. I search myself that regularly smile

P.S.: english isn't my first language (i am latvian), so maybe it would be better someone else makes such writings in Wiki about "Talon".

Re: Wikipedia notability

Seems it's too late for this time, there is no search result on Wiki for Talongame :-(

Better wait when Scott will public TALON... I hope it will be not far in the future.

Re: Wikipedia notability

In the meantime you could make a page on TVTropes.
As you probably know, they have a huge readership and no notability rule.

We live in a universe...                                                                    it's distracting
beware of ounce

Re: Wikipedia notability

On the talk page it has been given Stub-class quality and Low-importance (I believe this refers to the article and not the game)

Alot more needs to be written to upgrade the quality, I'm not quite sure what they mean by importance.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia … lity_scale
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia … ance_scale

I've never seen gameplay like the 1st 2 minutes of this video

This game is breaking new ground. This game is much more expansive than Descent3, and the translation and rotation speed is much greater. Freespace and Terminal velocity had speed, but they lacked 6dof motion.

I hope that the afterburners could be directional though, to enable unique circle strafe dogfighting and not just quick flyby jousting maneuvers. The jetpack in Tribes 1 and 2 is directional: left, right, forward, and backward are all of equal thrust enabling the shooting direction and thrust direction to be totally independent of eachother.
