Quick thoughts on DM:

  • Need bigger/more complex maps.


  • Gameplay is great, will be better when we have real servers


  • I can't recall the last time it was so satisfying to blow up a barrel....that someone else is carry with the grav gun.


  • Personal favorite moment: First game I joined. I spawn and some guy flings an exploding barrel at me, I panic and just try to catch it....which I do. Only problem is, someone else put a bullet or two into the barrel in mid-air, and now it's burning. I launch it, just hoping to avoid the explosion and somehow manage to get two guys with the blast.


  • I'm still trying to get a kill by underhand throwing a grenade, then grabbing it with the grav gun and giving it a toss. Most of the time I get whacked with something before I have a chance to pick up the grenade.


  • [+Obligatory 'Bullets are fun!'
