What's your in-game name(s) and why?

Postby Parakirby » Tue Jun 12, 2007 1:02 pm

I picked Synthesized ever since I got the beta off of 4chan (And seeing as how I bought it and STILL play it I gotta say it's a great game) after watching the main screen for a short time. I saw the various information fly by and the word 'Synthesized' caught my eye. So I decided to pick it.

I occasionally play as [CPU]Player 6 just to confuse people.
Name: Synthesized or [CPU]Player 7 in-game
Prefered 1v1 Country: Europe
Prefered 6P Country: N. America

Mmm. Subs.

Well, it's shinygerbil. In the heady days of my youth I used to go online by the name of Shiny Bill or Schizogerbil. Both in-jokes which aren't that funny.

And then I decided to combine them.

Yeah, that's about it.
Here is my signature. Make of it what you will.

I personally thought your name meant that you thought the gerbils would live on after a nuclear attack, only glowing. And therefore shiny.

Kitty.

It seemed like a good idea at the time, and I couldn't be bothered to type something else.

I wanted something nuclear-related, so I wandered around in wikipedialand for a while, before coming across India's first nuclear test - 'Smiling Buddha' - it just made me laugh.

Domino

1. It's part of my dog's name and my dog is cool.

2. It reminds me of "The Domino Theory" - I might be wrong but I think this had something to do with a fear during the cold war, that even if one small state (Latin American I think) should fall to communism, they all would and the USA would have a whole load of Russki nukes parked off its southern border.

:wink:

Your dog called Fats Domino or something?

Mas'aq (named after the Mas'aq Orbital, a man-made AI-controlled world in a book by Ian M. Banks, a British author.). Just liked it, and I use it as my primary/dominant nickname in most games I play. I use various other names in Defcon and the Battlefield series when I feel like testing new things or just mucking about.

Well, I use OAM or OrangeP47 or variations thereof, but my Defcon name is from when I would roleplay, my name would be General-(my last name witch begins with P) and name the comps like USSR, USA, etc. When I started playing online, it was a bit too long for my liking, so I made it shorter to GP.

Mine comes from the fact that it's short, easy to remember, easy to spell (vital for me), and sounds fairly cool.

For years I went by the online name "Falloutboy" based off of the Fallout mascot. I left the gaming world for a couple yeras, in which time the band showed up (much to my irritation), and I needed something new.

I'm Angel of Death. Have been for every on line game that I have played. I just liked that God had one of his Angels do his killing for him. I'm that guy......The one that that is sent out to KILL!! :twisted:

NukeLord, because it sounded cool.
In other games i usually use my surname because it's uncommon and i'm the only person likely to be called it.

Mine comes from a character in the series Red vs. Blue (Church is the guy on the Blue side with turquoise armor). I thought it was a cool name for this game, something different, so I went with it.

I would've chosen Donut, but the game doesn't have pink as a team color :lol:

Donut: "It's not pink! It's lightish red."

-Church
