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, Samha1n, 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/Andrew, 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.
