Well rockstar's upcoming game bully, which is basicly going around bullying kids, has been givin a name change. At this moment rockstar hasnt said why the are renaming the title, but its not difficult to guess that withh all the anti-bullying campaigners have been critising it from day one, so could this be a factor.

now the name change, its getting a new name which isnt so fancy and easily to remember its going to be called Canis Canem Edit which is latin for Dog Eat Dog. It has also been said that the game will not be delayed either, so it will still be coming out in October.

So what do you guys think of the new name change do you like it or not.

I thought it had been confirmed. I also thought the name change from "Bully" to the school's motto "canus canem edit" was only supposed to happen for Europe.

They wouldn't name it that, would they? It'd just be bad marketing. They ought to just call it "Bullworth".

Well, what a horrible name. The should just call it Bullworth Academy or just keep it as Bully. Pfft I don't see how a name change will drive away the protesters.

A name is a name, if they game doesnt get banned and I manage to get my hands on it then the name will be the last thing I will be thinking about.

British schools usually have a latin motto and crest like on the box art of Bully.

If my crappy latin serves me correct, it stands for Dog Eat Dog?

Meh, the name will grow on me eventually. And it IS only a name, so it wont effect the game in any way.

everyone will call it Bully anyways.

Funny thing is I don't see this news posted on any gaming site as of yet, and there is no link in this topic showing me that it was even stated. Hmmm. dontgetit.gif

This is just for Europe guys, not the US so Rockstar are still referring to it as Bully but it will just be released in Europe as this latin mumbo jumbo.

Sounds strange like hell that new name, but I don't care. Since it's just for Europe
we can still call it Bully. icon14.gif

I don't carewhat it's called as long as the game is good, but Rockstar won't have a lotof buyers since many people don't know about this game and they would probably not buy the game because of it's name, unlikely, but it could happen.

Deus Ex had a latin name, and it was an awsome game. I really don't care about the name. ANy game were you can put "kick me" signs on people's backs is worth a pruchase is my book. user posted image

Hey, the name of this game has changed, maybe I should stop bullying these kids and follow what this new name says. Canniblism isnt illegal is it?

Name change will do nothing!

I must confess to finding R*'s non-GTA games very second rate. Manhunt was good in parts but certainly no classic. State Of Emergency was feeble. Table Tennis? Um... nope. And as for this game, well it looks to me like faux controversy for controversy's sake. I'd also suggest that it's a kid's game with a mature certificate, meaning that those who willl get the most from it will be younger than the minimum age rating on the box.

Could be fun to a certain degree, but I think I'll pass and wait for the next great R* game - GTA4.
