Virus sounds cool, V.I.R.U.S. does sound cool too

but NO "V Initiated Revolution Under Shutdown."

Reminds me of Number 36 of the Bad names list ;)

M.U.S.C.L.E was a good name, but "Millions of Unusual Small Creatures Lurking Everywhere"?? No, just seriously, NO :P

Let's call it V.I.R.U.S and maintain that it's an acronym without telling anyone what it means then.
I still have my original Machines disks and manual....

Very Irritating Rampaging Ultra Spasms


Sure, but I don't know what that has to do with everything we have so far(oh wait, that's nothing, sorry ;))

I am not sure we are actually getting anywhere here...Not that I care, this is good fun. What other words start with V though? I guess Versatile Intentions Running Unseen Silently....If you can figure out what that means, you're doing much better than me.

Nah, not getting anywhere fast :P

V.I.R.U.S sounds kinda nice, but I think we should do with something else, since it doesn really say it all, it's a game of war, not diseases :P

A virus isn't a disease, it's a computer program created with malicious intent to harm or damage a computer system or benefit its maker in some other way.

I think 'V.I.R.U.S.' sounds cooler, thougher than just 'virus', a little ambiguous couldn't hurt...
Remember when being a Wrath Reaper was badass? Those were the days. . .

Oh, and humans catch a cold because theres a electronical "thing" inside them :P

There are 2 kinds of virusses remember, the word computer-virus came from the normal virus xD


V.I.R.U.S. does sound cooler than virus, but maybe we naad to put something in front of it or behind it

Operation V.I.R.U.S. or something(that sounds like a 90' game :P)

Another question would have to be will it stand for something, or just remain V.I.R.U.S? Because, as I think we have clearly illustrated, it is a tad difficult coming up for what it stands for

V.I.R.U.S.
VIRUS

hmmm

I guess we could use M2:Virus, but write it as "M2: VIRUS" in all the menu's etc (without the dots)

I don't know :P

I think we should put the naming to a halt for now, untill we got some storylines

Because the name is low-priority, right? You get a name from the story, not the other way arround :P
