My gaming machine is a big black box. The only light I have on it is the disk activity indicator. It’s cool, it’s quiet, and doesn’t attract attention. It hides in the shadows.
On the other hand, my display, keyboard, mouse, and mousepad is basically like sitting in front of a tacky 1970s Christmas tree.
At least you're honest about it. Heh.
Doesn't that bother you, all those lights when you're gaming? They drive me insane. I put tape over every little light on my keyboard.

Oh the memories... damn! This is when developers made online shooters that required skill and not the current “whoever sees the moving pixel first, wins” style gameplay. I remember when one-on-ones could last several minutes. You had to know the weapons, know your armor and jets, use the environment, and anticipate your opponent’s next move. It all mattered, even at close range. I’m not sure why they don’t make games like that anymore.
Even back then it was too different.
I remember playing it for the first time and almost quitting it, because I didnt get anywhere. Then for some reason I said to myself that this game is really awesome in the core, and you just have to learn it... and I became one of the best players.
Back then the community was pretty small too. I always saw the same players on servers, maybe 500 different regular players here in Europe, if not less. Only the mod community, particularly Renegades, was a little bigger, but I didnt really like the mods.

On one hand I'm surprised it hasn't been completely shut down. On the other I'm not surprised its population is apparently about 45 people give or take a dozen as of last summer.

still can't believe that so many critics praise Odyssey when it is just a copy and paste from Origins
