>40. Quake 2 never surpassed Quake, no matter how close.
I completely agree with you. They dressed the new whore up in a pretty dress, but underneath she was still just another bitch on the street.
>35. The AWP.... Jan 16, 00:37 pancreas
>I'm still waiting for the patch that will make the AWP cost $10,000.
Whenever I see an AWP whore, I say, “1st step, complete noob. 2nd step, AWP constantly. You are 1 step away from complete noob.”
Then I get everyone to save up for and use an AWP, after which we say, “Oh I’m sooooo good. I killed you with an AWP. I must be skillful.” And then we stop using it, and basically insult the idiot off the server by calling a spade a spade.

>Mechanik - Fair cop I stand corrected. But as you say, holding the shield when it takes a shot will likely knock you on your ass. And I doubt it would stand up to many shots of that kind.
Whenever I see someone talk about ballistics like a moron, I say, “Funny how people that play CS believe they know something about warfare and weaponry”.
The bullets hit the shield and the shield absorbs the impact over a large area of the shield which is transferred to the ground on which the heavy shield rests and to the braced forearm of the person who is in a kneeling or balanced stance position with the center of gravity forward of the shield holder and slightly behind the shield. The bullets would be felt through the shield, but it would *NOT* knock you on your ass.

>I hope at some point they quit upgrading CS and just come out with a new version, based on a more modern engine. Imagine a CS with the graphics of the new Doom engine.
This has already been tried with Unreal, aka Tactical Ops or Quake 3, aka Urban Terror. The problem with these games is that there is an inherent speed and fluidity in the half-life engine which far exceeds the ability for eye-candy graphics to interest the average to hardcore gamer. Online players desire for a feeling of immersion like a good movie, where they can fall into the game and enjoy fleeting moments of feeling like they are part of a situation. Some people pretend better than others, some people enjoy graphics to assist them in their immersion, but nothing compares to the fluidity of half-life’s Counter-Strike for its immersion quality.
I doubt that Doom3 will be conducive for a fast-paced fluid game since the game is slowed down and the monster count per scene is 1-5 instead of dozens. Perhaps in the future with a Geforce 7 or ATI 20,000. But right now, the technology simply doesn’t exist for 32 players to move at the half-life rate of speed on a doom3 platform.

>What ever happened to Team Fortress 2?
After Valve’s success with half-life, one of the founders retired and went sailing for the rest of his life. This is a true story. My suspicion is that this person was the brains behind half-life, and since nothing new and fresh has come from Valve, it sort of figures in. This Steam idea is just a money-generator. It isn’t going to lower prices of gaming software, it is just going to allow developers to get a larger chunk of the profits and to allow the publishers and marketing people to continue to be a part of the game, while removing the distributors and manufacturers. I’m pretty sure Half-life 2, if it is ever made, will still cost $50-$60 whether you can hold onto a CD or not.
>7. 1.6 eh Jan 13, 20:35 Wolf
>I have a love hate relationship with CS. I love to hate it. its fun, but I fuckin hate it. I was excited about 1.6 when it was anounced. but since i got my hands on BF42's 1.2 patch. and all those movies on RTR from IGN, CS just doesnt intrest me anymore. I think they should just let it die. With the death of CS, will also come the death of the hacks.
Whenever I see a hacker, I say, “You know, cheating your kills is like jacking off and telling everyone you got laid. It just isn’t the same thing”.
Then I join his team and get everyone to knife attack him into corners and humiliate him with constant insults. If I can’t join the his team, then I get everyone to wait until he is close to our spawn and everyone types “kill” in console.
