    Then you need to buy it, cause that will be played A LOT :P

    Im having trouble justifying it. I have Orange Box on the 360

    TF2 on the PC is 50x better than the 360 version.

    <%BigRed> you could make a post in the byoc thread, saying you will buy one for an offer and to PM you if they have one to sell

    On another note,

    Does anyone remember 3 years ago when some dude left his drive shared and it was full of pr0n and some chick yelled out "WHOEVER DAVE IS NEEDS TO NOT SHARE HIS PORN DRIVE"!!!

    A. That was awesome.

    B. Don't share your pr0n drive.

    Doom auto-aimed for you. It was essentially a 2D game in that regard. I didn't play it on the 360, but if it required you to aim vertically, it wasn't the same game.

    no doom required you to aim vertically. the great thing about the 360 controls were the modern 2 stick move and look controls, although the look controls were only left and right. anyway, i managed to beat the game on higher difficulties in the 360 version than i ever could with the pc version.

    Jonxp is right. You'll notice at 0:49 that when the player shoots at an enemy on an upper level, he doesn't aim up.

    DOOM

    That's the way the original DOOM worked. If it was different in some console version then it was indeed not the same game. DOOM was Wolfenstein3D with stairs, which is why I hate when people talk about how innovative it was.

    Rise of the Triad did have vertical looking, but it was not critical to the gameplay most of the time. Quake remains the most important evolutionary step from Wolf3D in my opinion.

    Heh, I've been exposed to too much bad grammar on the internets, so I assumed wrongly that you meant "no, doom" rather than "no doom".

    I thought the same thing, but then gave him the benefit of the doubt. Hooray for partially restoring my faith in people on the internet.

    Just put a password on your machine for good measure. Thanks to the great BYOC/Freeplay boundries last year we came back to find some kids on our comps! (I kid BigRed, I kid.)

    And WTF is all this Doom noob talk?

    Of course it was autoaim; no youtube post or csi investigation is required to figure that one out!

    If you put it in a bag and put the bag under the table it will probably be OK. But you're right, leaving it exposed on top of the table is probably not wise.

    So... me +1 make up two of the 6 devilish albertans on their way down for byoc... now the other four, reveal yourselves!

    As far as games, some bitches had better be gettin ready for some CoH action!
    And dota. Do you think there will be at least 10 people at byoc that play dota at a competent level?

    And as far as other games go i think I may as well just play all the byoc tourney ones. So that I'll toally pwn when the tourneys actually happen. Like I did with Defcon last year.
    Oh wait, wasn't I the guy that got nuked to shit and got Zoo tycoon as a consolation prize? Yes, my sister enjoyed playing that :)

    Now that you all know my life story I await meeting many stalkers at PAX.

    But seriously, when can we expect the BYOC tournament list?
