It it's already an established character I stick to the default name, if it's a Pokemon game I name it something related to shit, any other rpgs I usually just think up one that fits my character and play style (For example Eli the Silent for my cat man assassin in skyrim).
I've been playing Spelunky on the vita since it came out and recently I've been experiencing instant death, mostly in the temple stages. I was just on a great run, I had the jetpack, plamsa gun, 8 health, and I was on the last stage before Olmec and right as the stage started I died. On the death screen it said I was beaten up but I don't see how that was possible given my health and how I was killed in one shot. Can anyone shed some light on this? Am I missing something or is it a bug? Edit: It was the croc man killing me with his telefrags, it's good to know this game is still flawless in a techinal aspect (except from the framerate issue on the water/snow levels).
@medacris My dad is the same way, doesn't understand games at all and when I tried to explain them he looked at me like I was crazy. When I was a kid I tried to teach him how to play with no success (too many buttons I guess). since then I've learned to simply not talk about them, It's kind of a bummer that he can't connect with me on such a big part of my life. On the other hand when I was a kid a played way too much World of Warcraft, so he definitely had a point about them being unhealthy. Maybe try to show him a game that caters to his interests? Maybe something simple and competitive like Sports Friends or Nidhogg? And if that doesn't work maybe just stop talking about them in front of him.
