Talk about the game. What game? The game with the power? What power? The power of ... aw, skip it.

The Dictionary Request Thread

Postby TheK3vin » Mon Mar 10, 2008 3:15 pm

I don't know how much use this thread is gonna get, probably none. But I haven't made a thread in too long, so here it is. Personally, I think it would be funny if there was a definition for "Base" in the Space Station that read "Base. N. A small grouping of killer robots." Of course, it would have to be significantly funnier than that, because as much as I try to convince myself otherwise I'm not really that funny most of the time. But that was really just a random idea so I could justify starting this thread.

Post your ideas here for dictionary entries.

Doominator speaks wisely. I'd like to add more easter eggs to the dictionary, just haven't thought of many jokes.

And I seriously did consider needing to work your way through part of it to finish a quest, before discarding it as being a little bit too far outside the game. Would still be funny, though. Evil scientist zaps your player into a dictionary, and you've got to use the cross references to get yourself to the word "escape" so you can get out.
