Game names corrected by spell check

Katamari Damacy: Lots of good options here, but the combination of "Catamaran Intimacy" is the clear winner.

Lumines: Both of these suggestions are quite reasonable. How much cooler would this have been if it starred werewolves?


Elebits: We'd never even heard of Phlebitis before. Sounded awful just by the way it's spelled. Anything with "itis" is bad news. Throw a "PH" in there and now it's scary. Vein inflammation is no laughing matter!




Ikaruga: We don't want to kick 'em when they're down, but Atari might want to take Firefox's suggestion of "Frugality" and play it safe for a while. Also, here's hoping IGN can find a way to muck up more beautiful box art.

    Lol! I never knew abusing spellcheck could be so entertaining! XD Phlebitis sounds horrible. But I would love to play a game called "SEXY" Who wouldn't?
  • Tentacles - November 5, 2008 4:24 a.m.

    Phlebitis? Nice. I'll have to wiki that one.
  • CoD_22 - December 8, 2008 7:58 p.m.
