Why did you choose your nickname ?

Postby ShadowHunter » Fri Sep 08, 2006 10:22 pm

Hi all,

Just an entertaining question :D

I was wondering why did you choose the nickname you are using on the forums ?

Let me start by explaning "ShadowHunter"

It dates back from the second Sierra's "Gabriel Knight" 1995 adventure game where the word "Schattenj?ger" was just in the prologue... the character said it whith so much respect that the memory of it is still as vivid for me as it was 15 years ago... later I learned it ment Shadowhunter in English

Since I'm an enormous fan of the Gabriel Knight games combined with the fact I love mystery, horror games I thought it was a fitting nickname 8)

I really want the "shadowhunter.com" namespace... it was supose to expire in July 2006 but it was "again" renewed till 2007. But the "co.uk" is really much cheaper :D

When you Google "ShadowHunter" you will find yourself lost in over 280.000 pages hosting various topics.

Well... I really hope to learn more about your favorite nickname !

Kind regards,

ShAdOwHuNtEr

Harvester

Postby Harvester » Sat Sep 09, 2006 9:39 am

In the middle of 90s there was a game called Harvester... as i didn't play adventure games that time I didn't know it, but about in 2001. a friend gave it to me as he thought I might be interested in it. From the first moment I loved that game, but could finish it only in the recent years due to compatibility problems :? (and i still didn't hear the long final dialogue which explains everything because the game do not like my soundcard... so if someone played it and knows what's the end please tell me. but that's another topic) So the main point is that it was the first adventure game I really loved, that's why I've choosen this name. Otherwise I think it's a nice name, and I can use it almost everywhere at reguistrations because not many people uses it.
If you haven't heard about Harvester -I heard that it had quite a big advertisement campaign before the release date- I know about a German and an English fansite which contain quite much information about it, you can find it in google easily. And don't believe in what gamespot and other sites say, Harvester IS a good game :)

Mine was just chance. I used to play on-line MUD games, and I once had to come up with a character name for an "asian" healer in a hurry. For whatever reason, the Japanese porcelain came to mind.

Interesting idea to start this thread ShadowHunter :)

Well, my story is not that spectacular. I love to play mystery games and when it comes to registering somewhere it's good to keep some secrecy and anonymity, therefore I decided to use the name Mystery.

Unfortunately this username is rather often used, so I have to be quick and try to be the first one to register with that name :wink:

Hi all.

For anyone that has completed the "Missionary Man" demo, it is obvious where the name Rooster comes from. It's simply the alias Zeke, our hero, chooses, to escape from what he believes to be the Mafia, and which he uses thoughout the game. :)

I invented mine from 3 other things.
1. Another name I had, DaNubBusta, while I was playing some online games.
2. It stands for Dial-up Noob Boy
3. it's kind of cool looking, the d and b are opposites, and the u and n are opposites, dunb.

Korrupt_Ikonz - I chose my name because I was thinking of Famous People or People of Power known as Icons. Then I thought about how Corrupt most of them are. It also has to do with computer icons that sometimes turn up to have corrupt data. Then I just changed some of the letters around to make it look different and thus - Korrupt_Ikonz

Chromegloss...

Hmmm... haven't a clue where that comes from...

Maybe it's because our logo is very shiny!

Well, I live on a farm, and my favorite animal is a chicken and...

The number 1127 follows me around in life. I've bought five things that have turned out to be $11.27. I also like running in races, and I have got the number on my bib(basically ID) twice in 6 months. So the god forsaken number sticks with me.

I think what Chickenz means is that if you were to pick that as a nick..and you were'nt admin...you could be banned.--in another forum..Although i doubt it..but they may make u change it..so others dont think otherwise..The name does give u the impression, that its for tech help..Actually when i first saw it..i thought of GM make and model vehicles.. thought perhaps he was a fan of GM...I remember thinking..well at least he's not a fan of Ford...:P..till I saw his name....Giovanni..:D
