Or in other words I booted up XCOM Enemy Within this evening instead of wrestling with the predicted server hiccups and decided to rename that Argentian Heavy you get for playing through the Tutorial to "Dan Stahl."

Anybody else every done an XCOM play-through while renaming your troopers after Cryptic Devs?

Any other devs out there that want to (try to) help save the world?

I don't like giving my guys names in X-com. I name them something I like and two missions in they open a door and faceplant into a chrysalid. I name them something I hate and an hour later they're in stealth armor with a plasma rifle and I basically can't NOT take them on missions because they never cooperate and die.

It's like naming your Pokemon family in Oregon Trail. It just makes it real when they get dysentery and die halfway to Chimney Rock, or makes you feel guilty about dumping them in a box and never using them again because they're the same type as the first legendary you catch.

A few years ago on another forum, one of the posters made a Disgaea game where he named all his minions after other forumites.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.
