It’s finally finished downloading the patch! Hurrah! After a quick looksie at lunchtime I found out two things:
1 – The character creator is as in-depth as they said it would be, and is utterly awesome
2 – For some bizzare reason the word “Cardinal” is restricted as a character name
Now, I’m all for family friendly filters but that’s a bit excesive. I’m all for preventing people from naming themselves F***S***er C***Monger, but when a word can be multiple things (Especially in the case of Cardinal Numbers, who’s name is itself a pun on two of those – Family Friendly- meanings) it’s just silliness
I was always wary that I might not get Enola Gay in (for obvious reasons that it contains the word ‘Gay’ – which has sadly long since departed from it’s old meaning)
The whole thing’s left me rather deflated. I came up with a good fun pun for a name and it’s been blocked.
The whole hype leading up to the game for me was creating the character you want… but if I can’t name it what I want what was the point of me dreaming up that character.
I’m a creative person (don’t sneer) and I’m sure I’ll come up with something else.
