Being able to Name your character.

28 replies 315 views Edited Dec 20, 2012

Well, the title of this post said it. I'd hate to me known as Metlgearsolid in a game such as this. I LOVE God of War and i already came up with a greek name to name my character with. it's "Dardanos"  People may tell me to just make a new PSN account, well, i would but this is my main account and i have all 5 God of War Platinum trophies on this account.  So being able to have the name Dardanos above my head wile i play would look better then Metlgear ^_^. What do you guys think about this idea?

I think it'd be confusing because we would have to see PSN names as well as nicknames, since you need to know the name of someone's account if you want to send a message or add a friend.

Besides, you have Kratos as your avatar so it all balances out Smiley Happy

 

EDIT: Although now that I think about it, the name you first see would be someone's nickname, and then in the lobby you can select their character and then see the affiliated PSN id. That would work well I think.

And also I think the nickname should be completely optional so you can just choose to have your PSN id as your only visible name.

I would like to at least be able to have names that I could see for different builds, kinda like in CoD.

It could have switching feature. In KZ3 MP you get a skill that allows you to infiltrate as an enemy player. All of your enemies see as one of them and the name above your character is different. But when you kill them, the above your character flashes back to your PSN id.

This name switching could just go on the entire match. Or, you could have a nickname and when you kill someone or get killed that nickname could switch to your PSN id so people could see who killed them or who they killed.

But leave the nicknames out of the lobby. It'll get to confusing in my opinion. Personally, I'm fine without having a nickname, but I some people will really like this idea.

How about your clan name (if you have one) and THEN your nickname?

We might see something like this. In early builds of the game characters had nicknames and what not and didn't show actual PSN names until you were in the lobby.

But that was way back when they had the dynamic flag flapping in the background with the names on it.
