My left hand is killing me.
This is what I get for developing early carpal tunnel issues and then trying to play UT when I haven't played it in months.
The other day, Karl and I were talking about First person shooters and I was reminded how much I love that damned game. Well.
I suck at it now.
Hardcore SUCK at it.

I'm very tired... so that might have something to do with it.. but dear LORD was that pitiful.

And if my hand didn't hurt so much, I'd go back and keep playing til I had no problem beating the inhuman bots again.

Does this make me old?

Besides that, I edited a whole bunch of GIR wavs and kind of went nuts with the noises. So much so that within 10 minutes of placing them all, I had to go back and get rid of some of them. I uh .. I put them on EVERYTHING.
and that's just a bit much.
Sure.. GIR saying "I made it myself!" Everytime a menu pops up is neat and all .. but uh .. I have windows. Everything is menus. It was just TOOO much.

I'm glad I'm not the only one!
I just built a new computer a month or so ago and reinstalled UT after having not played it for a long time and even the skilled bots were kicking my ass. At first, at least. It was embarassing.

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one whose UT skills degrade with time.

Though I did go out and get the new Jedi Knight II game and have been playing that for far too late into the night the past few days. Maybe that will help bring back my skills.

Go sit down with Quake 3 Arena and get used to it for a few hours.. then UT will feel like it's in slow motion anyway :)

Mmmm see.. I feel just the opposite.
Q3arena is almost too slick, over glossy for me.
I enjoy that I can run through flying body parts in UT.
The action is more REAL than Q3 and therefore feels more intense.

Just play it on turbo if it feels too slow for you.

Q3A has the best mods... that's really all I play anymore... 1v1 and mods. I have one that I love... "capture the chicken" where there's a chicken running around the level, and if you don't have the chicken you're invincible, and the object is to hold the chicken the longest without being killed... and your teammates don't have weapons, they have egg shooters... hehe
