Default Haha - Satire on the criticism of Q4.

Whilst randomly browsing, I ran across the following satirical article/post about the criticisms that have been levelled at Quake 4 before it's even been launched. I personally thought it was great. If you don't... then... I hope you have something else to keep you entertained!

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.

Yes - I'll admit that I don't know that either... ooh, I'll check Acronym Finder... which apparently doesn't help. Maybe Open Source Project? Though I can't think why anyone would expect the source of Q4 to be open when the game is launched. I mean.. how little sense does that make?

And guess what, the machinegun has a zoom function. I hope they fix it, as it's obviously a bug. Nonetheless, it's still another reason not to play Q4. Go play Pro Evolution Soccer 5 instead, I bet there's no machinegun zoom feature on this game.
hahahahaha!

Good read .. the article is hilarious & so true. for the writer.

If you still think that's now much, and Q4 might still be an ok game, well, get this: Q4 is so capped to 60fps! LOLOLOLOLOL! 60 fps is for n00bs.

I want to play on a server on Sri Lanka, with a mere 1586 ping, and id Software WON'T LET ME! You know, this is all a plot; they don't want players to play against other countries, exchanging culture and knowledge and reaching world peace. Id Software is in close collaboration with the Bush goverment, trying to create disruption in world order and wars for money and oil. You want proof? They're on Texas!
I hope he was being sarcastic, he really shoud be.

OSP mod = Orange Smoothie Productions mod
A competition mod for quake3, SOF2 and other quake3 based games. It's the only mod accepted for use in professional q31v1 and q3tdm events. You need it, or CPMA (Challenge ProMode Arena, www.promode.org), installed to watch pro demos.
There used to be a webpage @ orangesmoothie.org, but I cannot seem to access it right now.
