But the title is alliterated. Plus, it is Friday!
Some asshat in a counterstrike server I was in last night had made a custom spray of the infamous NBC Cho photo. (Users can make images and spray them in-game similar to graffiti.) People were voting to kick him.

What a moron.

Yeah, when I'm simulating blowing people's heads off in a mass-murdering frenzy, the last thing I want to be reminded of is Cho.

Meh. That's the sort of trolling that should be ignored in games like that.
So people still play counterstrike? Every now and then I get a moment to play Battlefield 2 -- I love that game. Indeed, I think it's the greatest game ever made, and if they refine the platform it will endure (versus changing the model art and endlessly releasing different "products").

I like the Titan battles in BF2142. It would seem I've lost one of the discs to put it on my new system though. I bought BF2 in Singapore, so I had a version that played the commie music in all the loads instead of the US music. Kinda cool.
CS has a version they call Source that is an updated gfx engine with very similar gameplay. Recoil is much more forgiving, and it feels slightly different, but not a whole lot. There is a Source version of Team Fortress coming in the near future that should be interesting.
I used to run a CS server/clan before WoW caught me in its grasp. Now that I've escaped I'm thinking of getting competitive in it again before age kills my reflexes.
Vanguard was cool for awhile, but I think MMOs are just dead for me until they do something compellingly different with them. There is an MMOFPS called Huxley that looks very promising. Neocron was passable, but barely. The interface just made me puke, so I never got into it as much as I would have.
