PixelJunk 1-4 has been properly named: introducing PixelJunk Shooter.
The PlayStation Blog revealed the name earlier today. Shooter was picked out of 10,000 entries in the naming contest, which included suggestions like 'PixelJunk Depths,' 'PixelJunk Atlantis,' 'PixelJunk Caves,' 'PixelJunk Blaster,' and 'PixelJunk S.O.S!'

that's it? Shooter? In a contest with thousands of entries, if they were looking for "shooter" why have the contest at all? I'm sure there were great, original titles out there that were passed up on. oh well, lol, still looking forward to seeing more of PJ's creation

Out of 10,000 entries that is the one they pic...I entered and I read at least 30 that were really strong. Sounds like they already had it picked and someone got picked because they had the same name as the developers.
I love pixel junk and this game looks great, just not a fan of the name.
by the way, I don't think that mine should have one...it was PJ Terra. Not great but a little more thought then shooter.

wtf? they make a contest and everything to name the game, and then go with something very unorigional that im sure they just thought up themselves. shame. oh well im still gonna play it.
i suggested "PJ: Earth" ill admit its not as good as some others i saw, but i think it sure beats "shooter"

i had S.O.S. looks like i came close. w8, was that mine? maybe not lol. the title fits this or any game, since all games involve shooting nowadays

@4, yeah, I agree. And that name sounds much better than "shooter"

ehh...shooter? Cmon...It just reminds me of my tiresomeness of FPS shooters...

Is this a shoot-'em-up like UN Squadron? I really hope so!

i havnt finished either eden or monsters. eden i ve got all 5 seeds in the first 3 levels and a couple in the 4th and 5th but i havnt even got one in the 6th yet, idk why i just dont feel like playing that game very often. and monsters is just above my skill. i made it to the hard section and then just quit after 3 complete failures in a row. still play some easier levels every now and then though. still, i like PJ and will end up getting this game anyways and probably never beat it either if its as difficult as previous PJ games.

Shooter? Really? Oh well, it's not the name that counts. I was gonna suggest Pixel Junk Atlantis, but went with Pixel Junk Quench.

I submitted an entry to this : Pixeljunk Elements. I'm sorry, but I think the name I thought up was so much better. guess it wasn't descriptive enough...ha.
