If I bang my knee into something, my body's response is to screech like a howler monkey.

And start throwing things around.

And start panting and snarling and hyperventilating. Screaming and throwing things, just chimping out like a goddamn fucking 'tard.

This happened nearly two hours ago and my heart is STILL racing and my arms shaking like a goddamn fucking leaf.

Whenever I write something, I google the names of my characters to make sure I'm not accidentally naming them after a character or person that already exist. Usually, this doesn't happen. But there was actually this one memorable time where I found out I accidentally named a character after a 70's porn star.

I haven't given many of my characters last names yet.

But it is awkward that I've ended up with characters who share first names with coworkers...

[up]I agree, thinking of character names is hard... if you're trying to give them "real" names, at least. I would suggest looking at a "baby names" website.

I try to sing Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry, Be Happy" whenever I'm feeling nervous, but more often than not, I eventually switch to the minor key version. tongue

Whether or not I give a character a last name usually ends up coming down to whether it feels right or not. I’ve got one story where half the characters have last names given, and the other half don’t.

I've always found it kind of weird/annoying when people refer to game developers as a whole as "game programmers", for example, several instances I've seen of referring to a whole game dev team as "team of programmers". That's... not the only game development role, and while it's good for people in a game dev team to have a basic idea of the other roles just to work better with the others, I suspect it's rare for everyone in a team to actually take part in the programming or even fully know programming.

...also I wanna play Bishi Bashi (weird Minigame Game from Konami from back when they still made weird and wacky stuff) but most of it's arcade and PS1 only (actually played The★BishiBashi at an arcade once, great fun!) and PS1 seems hard to region unlock... Though there WAS actually a game released in Europe, and it's also on the PS 3 store! :3 nevermind, seems like it was taken down years ago

[up]I've never heard of people using the phrase "programmers" like that, but I totally agree that it's stupid.


I can't tell if "ilu" is meant to be read like "I Love U" or "i loo". I read it as the latter, but I think of it as an Adorkable way of saying "I love you", like you're intentionally slurring the words to sound cute.

I use street names in my neighborhood as character last names. Many streets are named after people anyway, so it works.

I'm not into wrestling, but Shinsuke Nakamura's WWE theme is one of my favorite songs now. It just radiates such power and the song is just so strong. I love it so much.

(If you're wondering why I listened to the song in the first place, it's because a real life friend of mine tried to introduce/get me into wrestling, and it didn't stick, but this song sure did.)

there are no rules to last names.

listed, i have characters with last names such as "Nada", "Irae" (her middle name is "Dies"), "Kensworth", "Van Wanroy", "Acantha", "Ochre", "Tek'Tarin", "Klemenitas", and then just a few characters who don't need them. half of those make sense for the character, some of them just sounds damn cool.

hell's teeth. i have a character who's first name is "Mercurial". mercurial is an abjective!

I was thinking... what is my favorite type of villain? I decided that I like an oddly specific type of character.

The best way I can think to describe it is as The Same But More Specific to Dastardly Whiplash. Instead of being dark and sneaky like that trope usually implies, these characters are more colorful, cartoonish, eccentric even. Their personalities often lean towards Psychopathic Manchild, and their voices are more likely to be fairly high-pitched.

Examples of this kind of character that immediately come to mind are Dr. Robotnik, Impostor Mad Hatter, Morty Maxwell, and Lord Licorice. I'm sure there are many others I'm forgetting.

Anyway, I'm just glad I figured out a way to describe this character type. It's just too bad that it's probably not tropeworthy, due to the whole The Same But More Specific thing.
