A Cacodemon

How did you come up with your username?

Recommended Posts

I was just lazy one day and thought about the most iconic Doom monster. The Cacodemon. So I named my username after it.

I combined the words 'Grim' and 'Dinosaur'... yeah that's about it.

For some reason on some websites and games I can't name myself it. Didn't know 'Grim' was such a bad word Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

What kind of games do you play?! Roblox and Club Penguin?!

I'm guessing it's from Gone in 60 Seconds. 24% on Rotten Tomatoes and 35% on Metacritic. Wow.

The 129th visplane crashes vanilla Doom. 16-17 year old me thought it was clever.

Β 

I kinda wanna change it to a username I use everywhere else these days, but a few years ago someone said thisΒ was the best username so i'm stickingΒ with it for now.

WhatΒ is the 129th Visplane?

It has some really dumb and stupidΒ origins

Sometime, during the early Doom Connector days (2005 i think?), stupid 14Β year old me, thought it would be pretty funny to set my multiplayer nameΒ as "FuckerOfDoom" and at that moment i thought i was being clever and funnyΒ untilΒ i was chased by a moderator into a server room and he told me to either change my name or be banned, soΒ in a hurry i changed it to "DoomMarine", a few weeks later i shortenedΒ it to "DMmarine". Since DMmarine was a very generic name, and because me and some friends we're talking about greek gods at the time, and because Phobos is the setting of knee deep in the dead in the original doom, DMmarine became DMPhobos, and i've stuck with it ever since.

I loved Colossal Cave Adventure growing up and made its magic word my username, as well as the nickname of the blue guy you see here.

The two numbers computers think in are only there because without them, I would have a username thatΒ is already taken.Β And no amount of case-sensitive-ness (?) can change that.

An older sister of mine was always a bitch, so we called her grouchbag. I thought it was funny, sooo there it is. My sister still has no sense of humor. I do. :)

I am pretty crappy with usernames and they may end up being pure cringe at times, but I like to have a special name.

Here I chose to have ShotgunDemolition as my name, because, surprise surprise, I love the shotgun in Doom.

I liked it, but it was a bit long. Then I changed it to ShoDemo, because a friend called me like that one day and I liked it more. Plus it doesn't sound as ridiculous.

I took lyrics from a David Bowie song.

"Mars happy nation, sit on my karma
Dame meditation, take me away"

Β 

Almost all of my usernames are tied to music in one way or another.

I look forward to @Linguica's response of "I was 14 and saw some meat."

Hah! That would be awesome though if Linguica were to comment on here.

Isn't Gaia the personification of Earth?

My username was inspired by, well, as if my avatar didn't make it clear enough, the Toshinden series of games. Long long ago, I used to be 'the shinjo2002', but then IIRC, I forgot my password.
