In years to come, when this site has expanded and has more users, that loads of the first sets of usernames taken are Batman oreintated, because of the hype around it right now?!

Anyway, use this thread to explain what your username is any why you chose it.

Mine is a track from my fav. artist Jay-Z....

I wanted to finally be able to use the name I've been putting into in-game name-your-character-ins-seven-letters-or-less entry spaces.  Also, I haven't seen anyone named after anything from Batman.

I chose my username because it's the first thing that came to me. Plus i was listening to a song of the same name.

Firstly, Batman and the Joker will always be cool.

My user name came because I didn't want any of my old GS or IGN names and my 3 real letter name had been taken very quickly. So I chose Otacon because I'm a little like him myself and I'm an MGS fan.

I've seen a few, and I'm not as active as some guys have been so I'm sure there are lots more.

I'm guessing nobody would've taken mine, either.  I chose it because it's the same as my Zune tag and when I created my Zune profile, I figured I needed something "artsy".   : /

It's an old nickname I had at school. A combination of my first and part of my second name.

It's also my Gamertag and PSN ID...

mine is my online Identity... though the numbers change a bit, its the same Premier followed by birthdate. Premier is just cool to me, and the ex-leader of USSR was pretty cool too, in a war-machine thinking way.

The reason I chose this is because it's the same as my GS username. There's a reason behind it but I don't feel like going into it now.
