Hello all!

I've flown over from Sonic Wrecks to inform you of the "Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood - A race to a name" competition which is currently running over at Sonic City.

SEGA have given us fans a chance to have a say in the name of one of the new alien races that will feature in the DS title when it is launched in the Autumn. A few members from Sonic sites and Sonic forums (such as Sonic Online, SEGA Nerds etc) were given a chance to generate ideas for a name for this new alien race, and 10 have been selected - Among them are names like "The Psykore", put forward by Dreadknux & Roareye Black of The Sonic Stadium.

Echo Hawk and myself have generated the name "The Gravitus" as our submission!

So here's the part where guys and girls come in! Head over to Sonic City and cast your vote so you can have a say in the name of this alien race! If you want to vote for Gravitus, that would be awesome; it would be Ultra-Fantastic (And a dream come true!) if my suggestion makes it into a Sonic game!

Thank you peeps, and remember to tell your friends (to vote Gravitus) too!!!

PLEASE act quickly as well - use multple PCs if you can - time is running out rapidly!

Make sure you vote for the name YOU think is best for the alien.

Yeah, for real. Gravitus is a good name. It works nicely. And after reading how the name came about it sits well in an RPG even more.
So go and vote for it. :D

The other names don't seem to fit too well with the character design so Gravitus was my choice.

Jesus. I'm sorry, but most of those names are god awful. Gravitus and Zoah are the only vaguely passable ones. Zoah got my vote a while back.

I agree. Gravitus and Zoah [Sega Nerds] are the best names by far.

Voted for Gravitus!

I'd have to agree that Gravitus fits much better than anything else on the list. Plus I liked it the most! :)

Again guys, thanks for your votes! There are only 3 hours left in the poll, as it shuts at 5:00pm GMT today!
Give your Granny a ring if she's got the net and get her to vote! Phone your brother and ask his girlfriend to vote! Every last vote is going to count, as it looks like it's going to be one close call!

My gratitude for all of your support!

Am I the only one that didn't vote for Gravitus or whatever? I didn't like it nor do I know where it coms from. It doesn't sound orginal at all to me. Sounds like someone took the word gravity and tried to put another suffix with it. Then again, I didn't like most of the names there. I just picked the Psy one since I like Psychic. I had no idea what else to pick. :/ I think thats what it was? I have no idea....

I picked Zoah myself, I dunno, I just liked it when I saw it. Picked it a while back too. Sorry guys, Gravitus is better than the otehr names, but Zoah did it for me :/

Wonder which name wins...

But Zoah makes me think of Noah...

Anyway, I have a pretty good feeling Gravitus or Zoah won since so many people here seem to like it. BUt you never know...

Meh, Zoah is ok but it's just ripped from Panzar Dragoon (so i've been told). At least Gravitus was altered around a bit.
Damn, oh well. Now i'm gonna think of a big boat containing lots of animals and a bearded man everytime i play since Zoah looks too much like Noah to me. :/

Indeed, there is a place called Zoah in Panzer Dragoon Saga, and that's what the name keeps making me think of ( and subsequently Paet yelling at me. Hmph. ). XD

I'm personally glad that at least one of the two names I liked ( the other being, of course, Gravitus ) won in the end.

So Zoah it is, eh? I kinda like it. It sounds a bit like something out of Bionicle, though. Still, it fits. I wish they had had a "name the Nightmaren" contest before JoD came out. By the way, did BioWare do the contest or Sega? I hope it was some of my fellow Canadians. I was born only about an hour from where they are in Edmonton.

Thats what I said earlier. Now I want to draw a comic about that. XD If only I had the time... I would really like to know how some of these names were thought up.

You know...I should have voted for Darknude just to be silly. Not the coolest name but it sure would have been pretty funny.

I really don't like this name for them. It doesn't seem to suit them either. I like names to have a bit more meaning to the characters and such. Ah well.

I am glad Zoah won. I like seeing Panzer Dragoon get some much deserved... something.
