Do you ever play the "Band Names" game, the one where you try to think of a cool-sounding and unique band name? For me, it usually results in some pretty goofy-sounding phrases (witness above), though I do occasionally come up with something kind of almost halfway clost to being mediocre.
“There are only two hard things in Computer Science: cache invalidation and naming things”.
I’ve been playing the same kind of game for the last few years with trying to find a cool-sounding name for a samurai-themed video game, with no real fantastic results. I was talking via IM with Esprite today, and he joked about making it the subject of a blog post…
So here’s the question: If you were designing a samurai/ninja/monk/japanese video game from scratch, what in the world would *you* name it?
