Anything and everything.
How I Miss Thee, Weapons Factory
I used to play Quake 2 Weapons Factory, and I loved it. It was the best mod for Q2. I came across the YouTube page of one of the other fellas who used to play, Rom; he has videos of some of the demo recordings he made during WF’s twilight years. Naturally, I nostalgia’d, hard.
Mostly I miss the people who played. Tonnes of great guys (and a few gals) who I don’t have opportunity to talk to much any more. If any of you come across this, you’ll know who you are. Particularly there was (*) Nabaroth, Scarab, Sam, Nereq, GenNuisance, Rom, Zombie, Mort, nolegs, nospam, Lorsen, Moxi, Mavi, (I’m struggling to remember names after all these years), Madhatter, Riptcage, and even Ace2k that little bastard. If you remember Guln, then you’re probably somewhere on that list too. Really, there were far too many great people who I got to play with to recall.
I should dig up all the demos I have and see about making videos out of them. It would be nice if we could get some sort of a revival going, but after a few failed attempts over the last few years, I just can’t see that happening. Sadface.
I wanted to throw a screenshot up, but can’t seem to find the disc I burnt my Q2 files to.
Update March 2016
This is, by far, my most commented on post out of all the crap I blather about. It’s a treat to still get comments five years after posting it, and ten years after I quit playing WF. I never did find that disc I burned, though I’m pretty sure it’s around here somewhere; it’s past time I dug the damn thing up and relived some of my best years of gaming.
To everyone who has left a comment, and those that may in the future, thank you. Even if I never got to play with you, that you were a part of such an enjoyable experience earns my appreciation regardless.
(*) I’m going to add more names as I remember them, or if they chance to comment and refresh my memory, down here. If I miss someone, it’s not by intent. Honestly, the whole WF community was an awesome bunch, and I enjoyed every minute I spent with you guys!
Impugn, Spectre, Lonedust (or was that Ronedust? 🙂 )
Update July 2017
This is probably my most visited post. If you played WF, I encourage you to leave a comment. Even just shout-outs to individuals or clans. Keep ’em coming.
