I’m trying to ease up on Youtube links, which I’ve come to realize take up a lot of the content of this blog by weight. I probably won’t be too successful at this, as it’s become a lot harder to find interesting written content on the internet, though it was never really easy.
I’ve been playing a lot of F-Zero 99 lately. I’ve been working on posts introducing the game, which is really great I think, but that kind of content (ugh the C word) takes time to write and check.
So in the meantime, enjoy/cringe at this collection of fun, and bad, handles spotted in the game. Of course, such a determination of quality is inherently subjective. But I think you’ll find that its lack is easier to adjudicate.
- ◆El Guapo◆ (I like to think it’s a Cat Town reference)
- Hootcifer (Owl House)
- Valnar (Grandia II)
- Ghost Cake
- ManChild30 (ah, honesty)
- SmileyBone (a Bone fan I see)
- GIANTROBOT (there’s something to be said for pure enthusiasm)
- AAAAAAAAAH (I counted the As to make sure I wrote it right)
- MissHeart (speaking for all the fem names in this list, takes a lot of guts to express girliness in this environment even if there’s no voice chat)
- Flarky (it’s fun to say!)
- Malo (taking time off from his shop)
- koppa (I hope this was intended as a Shiren reference)
- HALLOWEEN! (I assume they only play one day a year)
- Lonk (a fellow GDQ viewer)
- lovemykids (I assume this is a pure statement of affection and not a demand)
- TheKraggle (Lego Movie references are welcome)
Obnoxious names, much less in number thankfully:
- Hugh Jass
- Gotenks (what is this, 2002?)
- Jeb Bush (what is this, 2016? and terrible?)
- Wet Shart (I am opposed to this word and all that it stands for)
- MAGA KING (Please go jump in a hole until your brain develops, if it ever will)
F-Zero 99 is not a fitting stage for such lusers. Get out of here with that sub-Sephiroth378 crap.
Note: while Nintendo continues to gamely update their blocklists to prevent newly-discovered ways to express slurs, they aren’t perfect, and I’ve seen a couple of outright offensive names. Those don’t even get the dignity of being present in my list of bad handles.
