(Australian) Kotaku goes a-Scribblin' tomorrow. Tonight. Sometime soon!

On Monday Kotaku (the Australian variety) asked us for some words to try out when they get their hands on the game, which they planned on doing this Wednesday.

Well, due to the way time zones work (I think by magic?) it is, indeed, Wednesday in Australia. Kotaku released the list of the words they're using and will (hopefully!) have some impressions up today. Er, tomorrow. Tonight? Stupid time zone magic.

Anyways, onto the list:

BFG
Clinical neuropsychologist
Spatula
Force field
Trebuchet
Penguin
Butter
Wizard
Shrubbery
Chewing gum
Propeller hat
Parasol
Mirror
Treadmill
Chuck Norris
Acid
Black hole
Corpse
Pirate
Monkey
Ninja
Zombie
Robots
Taco
Boomerang
Slinky
C4
Axolotl
Spartan
Gamer
Earthquake
Grim Reaper


You can see my "influence" yet again in this list. I was the one who suggested "Penguin". I realize this might be confusing for those who only know me from this website and not elsewhere. I use the handle "SirPenguin" just about everywhere I can, and though I don't claim to be obsessed with penguins, I do love the little guys when it comes to video games.

So anyways, how about the list? What do you guys think? Anything you REALLY hope is in?

  1. already seen a lot of those, not a very thoughtful list to be honest, but still, I can't complain if we get to see some new items

  3. i hope propeller hat allows you to fly and all these words except chuck norris works, because i feel these little testing sessions may hurt the game's reputation

  4. They were suggested by users. I think we're seeing a good amount of the internet isn't very creative ;)

  5. I am surprised Chuck Norris works. Chuck Norris has proven to be a dick before about policing his name (suing the creators of the book about Chuck Norris facts). I hope Norris doesn't notice his likeness in Scribblenauts.

  6. Actually, I'm pretty sure it's been said that Chuck Norris isn't in. Doesn't stop every other thread on GameFAQs being about him, though...

  7. This isn't a list of what works, but rather, a list of things to try. I'm positive Norris isn't in the game.

    Thank fucking god.

  8. Sweet, I'm the one who suggested force field. I'm really curious as to how it works in-game, and how useful it'll actually end up being.

  9. Good god, people tried Norris at E3 and it didn't work. But who knows, maybe he counts as a meme?
