I’m not just a clown, I’m the whole circus. after a week I called him GenshinMost annoying character, Scaramouche broke my heart to smithereens and caused me to spend gacha coin on him. since then Genshin Launched two years ago, guys have been grumble Nonstop that dialogue choices in the story”Does not mean anything. Now it finally is, and I agonized over it last night for several hours. It was probably the most difficult choice I’ve made in any video game this year.

Scaramouche is a recurring villain who’s been a pain in the ass since his debut in November 2020. He’s always had a brazen personality, but he initially pissed me off for helping me create weapons that killed their unaware users. Several months later, she discovered that he had been using a stolen divine object to remake himself into a god. Again, I understand this is all from an evil textbook story, but what really bothered me was his superior attitude. He’s a simulated puppet who feels abandoned by his creator, but that doesn’t really excuse his terrible personality. Or his desire to become a god tyrant.

The last attempt in the main story tries to redeem him. After we defeated his god form in the final patch, he became an assistant to the god of wisdom. She showed him a painful memory from his past that proved his loved ones had not betrayed him. The revelation was so shocking that Scaramouche attempted to erase himself from reality using a fantasy supercomputer. It kind of worked. The scientist created another version of him to replace the one that disappeared in this new timeline. This is the person you would drag into your gacha character. Most importantly, you have to give it a new name. This name will appear in all scenes and interface text. While this is normal for such games PokemonThe ability to rename playable characters is the first I know of from gacha characters.

Here’s the catch, though: The new guy won’t accept just any name. Players report you You can’t give him his old name. You also can’t name it yet The mother who “abandoned” him. refuse any Names based on his former co-workersBecause they abused and exploited him. he is Has a custom response Per name rejected, some have pointed out that it is similar to the naming mechanic in Undertale. If you decide to give him your name, he is expresses approval. The game will allow you to rename it in the future, but warns that this can only be done a limited number of times. developers truly I want you to think carefully about naming the character and treat them as seriously as names deserve.

I was pleasantly surprised by this process, because naming video game characters can often be a way to strip them of agency. It has become meme to give a competitor humiliating name in Pokemon Red And the blue. But by showing clear preferences against certain names, the Scaramouche clone sounds more like a “real” person to me. Giving him a name wasn’t just a matter of personal aesthetics. I felt like I was fulfilling a specific emotional need that had been denied him for so long. Despite all this, you can still call it quits 69- Nada or Larger. One plural Noun that she has swept through fandom he is “baby girl. ”

Fortunately, many people are more thoughtful about it. Some people make lists Possible names like they are first-time parents. Even a fan was created Full Google scan To ask the other players what name they chose. Others are looking for meanings Certainly Japanese names, because his homeland is based on Japan. Honestly, this is an incredible gaming experience. I can’t think of any other artifact that could force players to go to so much effort to simulate the experience of picking someone’s name. In games that focus on choice, you’re used to making decisions about which NPCs live and which ones die. This person took me through an emotional decision-making process that felt exclusively personal.

I faced a dilemma. Names are new beginnings. It is impossible to use nouns to describe the past or the present. So I gave him a name that represented my hopes for his future. Shohei (rising, even/flat) seems to fit Anemo’s new wind-based element. Like his mother, I also wanted to give Shohei some freedom and agency – but without the tragedy that Scaramouche experienced. His previous incarnation felt abandoned as he wandered the world. Wherever Shuhei goes in his new life, I hope he will be in line with the goal.
