To "Hugo's House of Horrors"? I mean, people would be OK with that, right? I think it would drive home the Hugoness of this base while still referencing an old video game like the rest of the bases. Pretend this is a poll.

I'm okay with that.

Hugo's House of Horrors was sort of impressive in terms of being something better than I could do even now, but I don't really like the idea of naming the base after a trilogy that really had sort of sucky gameplay (ok, I can't remember if I played the game for five minutes and died and put it aside forever or just put it aside forever without dying).

My suggestion is way more self-referential and maybe defeats the purpose of whatever cleverness we're trying to achieve here, but why not just name the base after the Hugo sample "game," "the Vault of Hugo"?

I liked the Hugo trilogy, and I fully support the proposed name change.

Why don't we change *your* name, Blasque?! Instead of Rooty Yogurt, you are now known as... JOLT COUNTRY KILLJOY

That's not a bad idea. Still, I'm all sorts of lazy so I think I'll stay "Roody_Yogurt" for a while.

To settle this, I need to find and re-play the Hugo's House of Horrors games. I always thought they were good, but if you had a PC in the late 80s you had low standards. I remember being enthralled with a demo called "RGB Man" that took no input, was written in BASICA and did little else than run a Pac-Man character through the colors black, white, green and brown, none of which are red, green and blue, I might fucking add, except for green.

Maybe we could call it "Hugo's House of Whores," because, you know, whores.

My ETA on getting the three Hugo's House of Horrors games loaded and reviewed: Spring, 2012. So, stand down, everyone, I guess.
