I'm just liking this part. For the reference and the rhyming.
I sang my way trhlugh an entire intensely vulgar rendition after coming through that post, so pretty much ntonigut has been amazing.
CHIM CHIM CHEROOOOOO
I would love a project where people recounted Qt3 memories and someone strung them together into a Ken Burns-like audiobook.
Hey, we can get that there feller who used to do dramatic readings of Qt3 posts for the lulz. Everybody loved him.
You realize an "oral history" is just interviews with eyewitnesses to the event/person in question, yes? It's called that because the original source of the information is a spoken interview. It does not refer to the format in which the history in question is consumed.
Actually, it refers to the fact that it's not history unless it was relayed through the medium of oral sex.
If you are terrible, then I am too for laughing at Bill's response to StGabe in that Buffy thread:
I member, way back in the long ago, the Justice League was aboard their satellite trapped in another dimension with doppelgangers. And the goddamned doppelganger Blue Beetle (
Angie Gallant) sacrificed herself to win the game, arghlebargdammitalltohell - I (Red Tornado) told you bastards to destroy the stupid thing (or not use the investigate thing or something)!
And then Datter shit on his shirt.
God dammit, guys. Making me remember St Gabe AND stusser all at once. Fuck you!
That superhero thing was my first ever forum game. I had no idea what the hell was going on, so it's probably good I got killed right off the bat. And that Buffy thread was great, if only because I was like "hooray Bill Dungsroman thinks I'm being smart about something! MY LIFE IS NOT A TOTAL FAILURE! I KNOW MY BUFFY!"
That was also the first and perhaps only time I ever called upon the dinosaurs.
GABE WAS THE WORST. WRITE THAT DOWN, HISTORIANS WHO GIVE ORAL.
THE WORST. ANAX WAS NO PICNIC BUT I THINK HE AND AARON AND THE REST OF TEAM PEDANTIC SNOTVOICE WERE (ON REVIEW) SLOSHED UNJUSTLY WITH MY OVERFLOWING LOATHING FOR GABE. THEY WERE AS TRIBUTARIES TO HIS NILE OF SHITPOSTING, HIS VICTORIA FALLS OF AWFUL.
HOLY FUCK. HOLY FUCK. DEEP SEATED. LOATHING. RISING. NOT UNLIKE BONER.
THIS STYLE OF WRITING MAKES ME THINK SHATNER WHICH MAKES ME THINK PANTS SHITTING BUT ALSO STARTREK ONLINE WHICH WAS BRIEFLY FREE AND HALFWAY DECENT BUT. NOW. APPARENTLY AWFUL. ER.
Something about flying those ships though, I liked the travel system bad as it was with the awful obvious timesink. Maybe it's because I gave negative fucks about the gear and enjoyed the pvp before I leveled to the point that gear mattered which made it blow cocks.
StGabe, man, FUCK THAT GUY.
When I refer to Other Forum people who on-the-whole destroy community value and I'm glad they aren't here, I think every one on the list has now been mentioned in this thread. That's hilarious.
I'm so sorry I killed Aquaman and set off the Night of Two Deaths that made Angie Beetle's plan work. I should've known they wouldn't mimic Aquaman since no one would ever want to be him.
Team Doppleganger was so lucky you did that. It was ridiculous that we could pull it off.
BUT WHAT WAS UP WITH THE HAWKMAN CORPSE?
It was somebody's power (the ability to make a Hawkman corpse) (I have no idea) (the game owned anyway)
That is the worst superpower ever.
It was a thing Atom got separate from his power of shrinking away from a fight.
PlanetCrap doesn't have bans, but Warren was effectively driven off by the shitstorm after he took a cheap shot at someone whose friends had just been murdered. If someone like Warren can get banned from a site that doesn't have bans and can't get banned from qt3, something is wrong. Some developers, like Brian Reynolds or Soren, you want to keep around even if that means coming down on other posters. Others like Warren and Brad Wardell just use their privileged status to be the biggest assholes they can be.
Yep. Pretty much all of the original crowd either came from sissypigs or were personal acquaintances of Tom and Mark. I was both - I'd been on sissypigs for years, until eventually AOL's endless summer killed Usenet entirely. Tom also helped me out a great deal when I was just getting started in gaming journalism. I finally met he, Mark, and Bruce Geryk at an E3 after party full of other journos. You have never seen free alcohol vanish so fast. People may claim that gaming writers aren't journalists, but I say - who else do you know, other than journalists, who can decimate a free bar at that speed?
You're missing the worst part. She didn't just sacrifice herself - she sacrificed me! And I was Booster Gold, damn it! THAT'S NOT RIGHT. Although to be fair I really ceased giving a shit once BB died and we could no longer be Boostle.
You wouldn't, if you knew him better. Just... trust me on that one.
God, I'm just glad that Voltaic asshole isn't here. I never could stand him, could you?
No mention of the Koontz? DrCrypt ripping Koontz apart was one of the more enjoyable reading experiences from way back when.
Koontz was literally insane. Once we discovered that his absurd navel gazing and stupid overthinking of things was the result of mental illness, he stopped being funny and started being kinda sad, and maybe a little bit scary. And, unfortunately, it also made Crypt's writings just seem kind mean and pointless, even though Crypt didn't know at the time about Koontz.
Hmm? What was the matter with Umac? He made usually amusing forum posts, which is pretty much all I ask of someone I know over the Internet.
Yes yes, bring us down. It was still entertaining at the time. Him, Smart and Huffman were the 3 titans of Qt3 insanity from the early days.
I'm not going to air dirty laundry. I'll just say this: he and Koontz have more in common than you'd think.
Yeah, Umac would get pretty...unreasonable...in IRC. The bad outweighed the good, sadly.
I don't think I've seen Dirt mentioned.
Also, "Which EB, Executioner Five?"
I believe Koontz was the one who came up with "The Entity" to refer to the Chick/Asher duality of board ownership.
Well mine as Black Canary was literally "You are Green Arrow's girlfriend."
Everytime I hear about the fabled Qt3 IRC channel, it's like I'm one of the Shire Hobbits hearing about Mordor.
That's because Tom didn't like people talking about it, and would ban/threaten to ban people who mentioned it.
It'd probably blow your mind then to know that there are now two 'competing' channels. I guess you mentally can fill in 'The White Tower' for the other one.
Which one is the "cool" channel?
madkevin, it's a trap!
This is still my location tag on Qt3.
Finally, a forum game with roles that Tom Chick can really appreciate!
No, sugar britches, your superpower was looking so good in those fishnets.
Is that a reference to the totally mature and not-at-all stupid debate about boyshorts?
Separate names with a comma.
