In lighter news, I had a craving for deathmatch action, so Remy and I loaded up Star Trek: Elite Force 2 and went at. The bots are kinda erratic, though. On some maps, they're pushovers. On others, they can't be killed and wipe the floor with you. Bleh.

What I love best, though, aside from the fact that it's Star Trek and deathmatch (they call it a "holomatch"- eeee!), is the player skins. There's a male Bolian and a female Romulan- like two of my role-play characters- so I take turns playing deathmatch "as" them. It's fun. ;) The game is also very hackable, so I want to see if I can come up with my own character skins and possibly also my own map sometime in the future. Nothing can top lordjosh2004's Quake II Cathedral of Learning map, but I can try to make something decent anyhow. ;)

Yes, much geeking will abound when my (admittedly old) Windows box is back up and running. Can you believe I still haven't swapped out the Nvidia GeForce II in there?

You flatter me, my friend.


GeForce II???? Holy cats!

That needs to be replaced, but I suppose it can be forgiven. Maybe. :D

I need to get my 4th machine up and running, to throw linux on there and get my little web server off my HTPC. For what it's worth, that behemoth will only have a TNT2 Ultra for Awesoma Video Powah!

I haven't deathmatched in entirely too long. Eh, C'est la vie.

Be well,

It's been ages since I've deathmatched too, and boy, I can tell I was in withdrawal. I keep wanting to play to keep killing things and venting my frustrations, hehe!

In that sense, shoot-em-ups are highly underrated as a therapeutic device.

Take care and LL&P!
