i copied the name from http://nifflas.ni2.se/?page=FiNCK
if it isn't fire nuclear crocodile killer, nifflas must have botched it on his site

also, fire in nuclear crocodile killer doesn't really make any sense either

sure, names don't have to make sense but sensibility seriously helps in not sounding stupid :)

Seriously, the name doesn't need to make sense at all! This is just the first time such a game from Nifflas has had such a ridiculous title... I think.
Many a hand has scaled the grand old face of the plateau,
Some belong to strangers and some to folks you know,
Holy ghosts and talk show hosts are planted in the sand,
To beautify the foothills and shake the many hands.

even "avoid the evil space eel" and "r-type almost pi" were somewhat coherent names

bear in mind, i didn't say it needed to make sense, but even being properly english would make it sound far less pathetically silly :)

One of Nifflas' friends suggested it, he liked it, so that's what it is. Deal with it! :[

that's not a very good explanation for what it means (you guys said totally random what?!?!?!) or even its origin (nifflas' friend would have to explain that bit)

oh by the way if you guys are completely right about it being nonsense i'll say it right now that i don't like it (i'm pretty sure others agree with me)

Oh, guys, Nifflas said that it's not up for discussion, so i don't really think there is any point arguing about it. Either you like it or you dont, i can't see any point in flaming each other over your opinions.

I'm not dead. Not entirely. And yes, I'm embarrassed by most of the posts I made here.

^ The 'i' from 'Fire' was probably simply added to make the title pronounceable. 'FNCK' doesn't really roll off the tongue.
