Just a note that the figures were/are created and produced by Reaper Miniatures out of Dallas Texas.

www.reapermini.com

While they don't sell them direct, they did at one time offer every creature from the games (Doom and DoomII) of which the ArchVile was the greatest IMHO.

There's still a few sites that have pics up of the figures:

Now here's something that makes me proud to be part of the gaming community. When we can put aside our differences, forget our flame wars, pull together and offer help, even in the smallest sense by offering a few thoughtful words to assist and support a fellow gamer, or brother to us in this sense, in their time of need.

Blue, my condolences and heartfelt wishes to you and your family.

To eveyone that has and will post; thanks for being the people you are.

Actually my pet monkey is busy coding our new game engine for our upcoming FPS where you play Twinkie the Kid tossing out Ho-Ho's while simultaneously battling that beastly villain Grimace and his not so quite twin Barney the Dinosaur. You’ll be able to battle using vehicles like the Big-Macmobile, Ma Bell’s monopoly hammer, and the now defunct motorcycle from DNF. Locales will be completely random and somewhat made up, but will include Vietnam, all WWII locations, and a bit of here and there. There will also be no cheating since we’re completely disabling client side mods… Hell, we’ll probably disable server side too while we’re at it.

Oh, and it’s done when it’s done.

But look for version 2 out later this year.

Yes, the original Wolfenstien rocked... and scared the sh*t out of me every time you'd run into one of the walls...that god awful sound it would make.

Remember all the original LucasArts games? Electrogylde, Koronis Rift, and Dragon's Eye. Lucas rocked then too.

Hell I just pulled all the old 5.25 out... Jeesh, there's Spy vs. Spy, Boulderdash, Mountain King, Star Fleet, Bhind Jaggi Lines, Relm of Impossibility... crap, I'm going to be up all night playing these...

Ah, the good old days.

I mapped the whole city out too but never did figure out how to get out. That was the premier RPG for the time, and which I base all RPG against still (sadly not too many compete). I still have that on 5.25 floppy for the XL, but I think the last time I attempted to boot it up it broke... it was either that one or Alternate Reality 2. Can't remember.

MULE was great, and so was Drol. Anyone played that one?

Then there's the classics like Loderunner, Montezuma's Revenge, and Conquest (sorta like Risk but with random maps).

Anyone remember the Tale of Beta Lyra or Alternate Reality? Damn those were some good games. I still have my Atari 800XL and games. I'll have to pull her out one day and see if she still boots!

Anyone have any problems with the new drivers and BF1942? Seems my G4ti decided not to play nicely with BF1942 after the update... I had to revert back to the previous version.

Just FYI...

the 64 bit versions of Win2K Svr and Advance Svr are very lackluster in performance unless you are running on a 64bit processor.

Okay, all that being said I pointed this discussion to a friend of mine to read (the guy that actually pointed me to the article). In general he got a kick out of our comments then stated he was surprised that there was such a lack of sympathy.

Gamers being a very sarcastic, ‘tongue-in-cheek’ lot I sent him the following response:

“I think it’s more a sense of ‘defensiveness’ than lack of sympathy. The media has a tendency to paint gamers as a reclusive, introverted, self-centered type of person who will snap at any moment. So gamers tend to take a cynic view to such news just waiting for the media to get a hold of it and sensationalize the whole thing.”

Now for the most part I think that’s true then I thought…Ironically, we play right into the media’s hands by acting that way. Personally I do feel sympathy that a fellow gamer should meet his demise on the floor of a public bathroom, yet there is a little elation in me towards the fact that, as already stated, he died doing something he enjoyed; or at least it seemed that way.

Anyhoo… just thought I’d share that with you.
