The Origins Of Your Username

What on Earth is that?

In the game trilogy .hack//G.U. you can go onto the forums. Despite being not the best dot hack games, the forums are very real and vibrant compared to the main game, with each user having a clear and realistic personality. The most notable pair of users is KhakiLeader and OhmRice. Ohm (the greek letter) is assumed to be a butt by Khaki, so he calls him "BUTT-rice" when he first encounters Rice, who promptly corrects him to OHM-Rice. He continues saying butt-rice anyways just to mess with him. The two end up frienemies and a comedy duo who always follow eachother around on the forums.

... So yeah, I was enug of a nerd to read the entire forums in those games instead of just playing the storyline.
 

Kazooie

Crusader for Cute
My very first username I formulated when I was 12, was going to a game of laser-quest; they asked for a handle. I panicked, asked for "Killer joe", had to be shortened to what it is now. It is an utterly terrible username.

My second username I formulated while hanging out with my lezbro; she wanted me to join runescape, so I did. I wasn't eating a burger at the time, so that's what I made my username.

Finally I made the username "Kazooie" because I wanted something impossible to google-stalk and wanted it to be completely unrelated to my two previous usernames (which I conveniently did not name). Also because kazoos are neat and banjo kazooie was a great game.

banjo kazooie was a great game.

I've seen Kazooie, I've seen Conker.. If I find Banjo on these forums now I'll be off my tits on happiness.

What do you do in that game?

What do you do in that game?

You try to stop some evil rouge AI from taking over the world by playing an MMO or some shit. You see, the AIDA (Artificially Intelligent Data Anomalies) came from a badly designed MMORPG that was originally made by a weird German guy named Harald whose waifu died before she finished her epic story, which Harald based the game off of while, for some reason, programming the Ultimate AI named Aura at the same time. He put Aura and the game into the same package, and then sold it to a big gaming company for no apparent reason, which after released as an MMORPG called "The World" caused the Morganna incident which almost put everyone into comas and nearly destroyed all technology, but some stupid kids playing the game somehow stopped it (which STILL makes no sense) and saved the Ultimate AI. Five years later in 2015 there was a fire resulting in the loss of 80% of the game's data and it had to be rebuilt as "The World R:2" and now there's even MORE bugs trying to kill people which you have to stop because they put your girlfriend into a coma or some bullshit like that, and the company that owns the game is just as oblivious to the danger as ever, and despite there being large sections in the news about it, nobody really takes any action to look into all the weird shit...

*deep breath*

Welcome, to "The World." That's the BASIC background of Dot Hack G.U. (without any real spoilers). Oh, and should I mention that the next Dot Hack game chronologically, .hack//Link, is centered around time-travelling and being physically sucked into a PSP game? After the original Dot Hack quadrilogy, the plots go from decent to bad to terrible. But the original four aren't half-bad.

...

Did I rant? Well crap, I didn't mean to do that. My bad. :p
 

Sarcastic Coffeecup

Hand. Cannot. Erase.
A long time ago when I started playing Republic Commando online, I had to come up with an username nobody had taken. I ended up with Kahvikuppi, Coffeecup in finnish.

I hadn't drank a lot of coffee before so I figured I'd start living up to that name, afterall a name needs some base to it to represent you. I fell in love with black coffee and anything coffee related has been in my secondary usernames since.

Why sarcastic? well, that is because I am sarcastic and cynical irl.

The name 'Cocobanana' started out as a joke because I'd been in the fandom for longer than a sane individual should endure and wanted to create a dummy account on FA just for porn. Later on, I grew to like the name though mostly prefer when people keep it to 'Coco.'

As for what the joke is, there's a song by the Pixies called 'Gigantic' where Kim Deal talks about having sex with a black guy with a big penis. Black penis = Coco(a) Banana.

Mystery solved.

I somewhat write Poke-fanfiction and my first character was a Zoroark, with yellow instead of the red. (For those who don't know what a Zoroark is, it's a five foot fox fur, with a huge mane.) Well I eventually finished that story and started a sequel called 'A Dawning Star'. (don't read it or try to find it, never finished it) Since my first character was a fox and that the character was yellow like the dawning star, I decide that it was going to be my user name.
 

King conker

New Member
Was a fanboy ever since the n64 game Badfur day. Since conker is taken so often in most places i adopted king conker since well, at the end of the game he is a king.

I useed Nicket a lot prior to that but King conker just bad a better feel to it.

Its skier lingo for someone that bird dogs out the stashes of the floofy white stuff (and I'm referring to snow, not coccaine). Usualy involves predawn starts, hiking and more drive to work for pow pow than average.

I lived in california when I first studied art... they said my work was Gnarly! Still not sure what that means.

It comes from the word gnarl or to twist with force. It is often used to describe extreme situations that can mangle you. "That wipeout was gnarly brah." "Larkin was in a gnarly car accident." It can also be expanded to cover things both powerful and awesome and thus can be used with positive conotations as well. "Did you see him throw that Lincoln Loop off the eagles nest? That was the gnarliest thing I've ever seen."

This concludes our lesion regarding the various dialects of California bro.

Well, I just stole the suffix from DoDonPachi. Dunno where the Xo came from. "ZoPachi" was a bit more predictable than XoPachi. I actually really love my alias.
