    Yeah, and can you believe Unreal98 is coming up on its 18th anniversary in spring of 2016? Two years from a 20 year old game. Does it feel that old? It doesn't feel like it's been that much time.

    Grat's on the duration.

    I still remember seeing the flames on the opening flyby and thinking about how real they looked! I was always about playing the original Unreal online as opposed to Quake. Bouncing the flying saw blades all over the place was fun, the ricocheted nicely off the walls.

    But there's a universe inside each and everyone of us, and it's beautiful, and it makes you feel like an unique snowflake in a blizzard of joy and happiness!

    Ah forget it, we're all excrement.

    Morety, JohnDoe and Neonite! Hey guys! Yeah I mean it's not necessarily an accomplishment, just a realization of how old one of my favorite games is, and it is pretty cool to still be chatting with a few of the old people I knew from back in the day. How I've grown compared to when I was a kid though, hehe.

    One thing for sure, I'm still a computer nerd.

    Someday we should do a coop game of Unreal 1. Maybe. I mean I have decent internet and a kickass setup for computing, it should be able to handle Unreal1. *CRASH*

    That's the spirit!


    Ah yeah, Unreal game crashes. Must've experienced a total of hundreds.. of billions of those. Most of these occured during UT coop sessions. Mainly with the akcoop mutator. Asgard and kari iirc.

    It's slightly terrifying how long ago that it all happened. Halcyon days, when the terms HPB and LPB meant a damn.
