I hate you guys.

Recommended Posts

I hate you.

Yes, all of you.

Yurch, especially, because he makes everything sound fascinating. Poesel, especially, because he types what I'm thinking. The rest of you -- and yes, Clay, you especially -- because you've all pushed me past the breaking point.

I heard about the game, saw the initial screenshots, and thought the game was, well, lacking. Then the beta came and I was hooked. Hooked in a major way. But there's no way I could justify $45 for myself, and I convinced myself that 3 copies (one for myself, and one for 2 of my boys, and we'd play at home on a LAN) was just too expensive.

Then, the dual eLicense thing came. Two copies. I'd only need two copies. But two copies was still too expensive, right? So, I played the demo. And played the demo. And played the demo some more.

And read. Read about infantry. Read about new maps. Read about new scenarios. Read about a $35 price tag. $35 was still too expensive, right? (Hey! I'm a bargain-bin kind of guy. Build a pc that's a year behind, and buy year-old games, and everything's cheaper, right?)

But, then came the Bacchus. And a $35 price tag. And a blown motherboard at home that made me rebuild a pc. And a new notebook ("for you, my darling wife") that just happens to play DropTeam acceptably.

Fine.

I surrender.

I clicked the Buy button, and now I'm downloading this too expensive game that I've already put more hours into than 25 of my bargain bin purchases combined.

I hate you guys. All of you.

Well there is a simple solution to your problem pilgrim. Come on out and do your best to smash us into a burning piles of radioactive debris.

If you can...

Oh, believe me, you're in there.

If you'd like to be part of the "especially" crowd -- and yes, it is an exclusive bunch -- I'll try to dig up something.

*ruffle, shuffle, ruffle, crumple*

Ah, here it is.

....and Squiddy, especially, because he used the word synethesia. ("...on the other, the tac is a kind of sensor synesthesia..."). Synesthesia? Synesthesia? Despicable.

However, your membership is tenuous, at best. How can I hate anybody very long who can generate this kind of phraseology:

murdered electrons to produce your message needlessly
Murdered electrons to produce your message needlessly. Wow.

Anymore of that poetry, and you're gone from the I-hate club.

I've spent decades murdering electrons and scraping their hoary old bones across cathode-ray cave walls, just to ready myself for this moment.

[sniffle] Its like the Emmy's. I'm so proud.

(Be careful, I grew up reading Lovecraft and Knuth. I'll describe something as "squammus" and then write my own mini-language to go further, if you're not careful.)
