Thread: You Know You've Been Playing Too Much Alien Swarm If...

  1. #1

    You Know You've Been Playing Too Much Alien Swarm If...

    1. You come out of ASw and start pressing "t" before you type anything on IRC or other messengers.

    (I've done that before ><)

    2. People in real life won't let you near a shotgun because they've seen you playing Alien Swarm.

    (Seriously, Dread, DQ and co. don't trust me with shottie or flamer. )

    3. You have a collection of mugs at your keyboard. (I do! )

    4. You have a basket used to store snacks like mini-Twixs, and then you take the wrappers and flick them at the screen after you've died, in an attempt to crush the other marines. (Yep... done this... and I hit NachoMan on the briefing screen once)

    5. You have stayed in #Swarm.Pickup for at least 24 hours, excluding netsplits/pingouts.

    6. You've had two of the marines have discussions, using only the voice commands there. (I did this with Phanta once )

    7. Baz: You walk around describing everything you see as being "almost as ugly as me"

    8. Johnathon: when playing other games or typing in your messenger you hit 'f5' to make a 'quick smiley'

    9. Leo: Your community manages to lock the first “hello” thread posted by a woman, for spamming.

    10. SkYa: When you hear that music and the game goes in slow mo... you get all excited as if you're in a movie!

    11-23. NachoMan:
    The aliens have started to complain about being spawn killed

    You discover a penchant for other top down games. Such as chess.

    You decide to make a map for AS, and 6 months down the line you still haven't finished it... *ahem*

    If a black cat crosses your path, you immediately grab it by the scruff of the neck and demand to know when the 1.3 patch is coming!

    You see a man repairing the tiles on his roof... "OMG, R00fH4x!"

    You play UT2k4 and forget all about the z-axis

    You keep looking for these so called vents in every building that can fit a full grown man inside them...

    You buy the Aliens DVD and laugh when the marine with the flamer ends up killing half of the squad.

    You find yourself constantly walking into hinge doors.

    You wonder if people living in the Alien Swarm universe are always cold and wet on account of nobody ever inventing a roof.

    You wonder what a life without Alien Swarm would be like.... *shudder*

    You regularly share anecdotes with friends about your time in the IAF

    You want to marry Wildcat, but are despondent when you hear she is already engaged to Wolfe.

    24. You wonder if you can put stars into your Demolition skills so you're fireproof.

    25. DeepQantas: The Doom 3 monsters don't scare you since you served in the IAF... and you don't mind shouting it to their face!

    26. SkYa: When you hear that "Text to Speech" in your head whenever you read something or have someone talk to you!

    27-38: Shub
    You won't leave the first mission until Jaeger or Sarge has 100 unassisted kills, just so you don't have to worry about putting any more stars into Accuracy.

    In real life, you've accidentally set yourself on fire repeatedly because you could've sworn you got your Explosives stat up to 5 stars.

    You've made it a habit to avoid air-vents or narrow hallways around your town and house. Any jackass knows that they're chock full of parasites.

    You start wondering why your computer-savvy friends don't all talk with crazy Southern accents, or aren't missing eyes.

    Your firearms experience in ASw has lead you to believe that if you're fighting a person or animal that won't die by high-caliber military assault rifles, blasting it with a handgun twice will do the trick.

    Any problem can be solved by setting it on fire, and running away from it until it dies.

    You've locked yourself out of the house, couldn't find the spare key, and decided the easiest way to get back in was to fire six-hundred rounds from a machinegun into the front door.

    If you're drunk, and listening to the same repetetive hard-rock guitar riffs, you're instantly turned into a gun-toting killing machine.

    Barrels scare you. They're either chock full of radioactive gas, or some prick has rigged them to explode.

    39. Iron Corvus: You go outside to get some fresh air and you notice a beautiful smooth scrolling nice rendered clouds and hi res textures on buildings.

    40. You think you can go out in any atmosphere without choking, asphyxiating or dying - and that you'll always be stuck to the floor.

    Ok, I've decided the main post will hold those that get on the list, that way the admins/mods can prune the thread occasionally and stop it rampaging.

    You call for medic in UT2004, only to get your statistics obscure your view.

    I always hit T to type and try to reload in vanilla (Side note: I don't think anyone would let me near a shotty or flamer anyway )
    Another one: (I've done this >.<) You dream about alien swarm.
    In game: You call the un-stimmed parts breaks.
    Edit: You try to convert everyone you know to AS

    You know you' ve been playing too much AS when:

    The aliens have started to complain about being spawn killed
    You discover a penchant for other top down games. Such as chess.
    You decide to make a map for AS, and 6 months down the line you still haven't finished it... *ahem*

    Hmm, I guess I'm one of the lucky ones that hasn't played it too much then, just enough though.... I play Red Orchestra also, and a flaw from that game is I expect every other fps to go to iron sights when I press rmb.
    Way back, when I played Far cry....(>_<) I used to bicycle home on a sunny day, I live in a wide open area, And I wondered why the hell I couldn't zoom in about a mile with my cryovision....

    Erm, hate to break your conversation, but this is about ALIEN SWARM only, not RED ORCHESTRA or FAR CRY.

    Let's stay on topic as much as possible.

    I own a black cat and when I see it always think of AS (haven't gone so far as to grab it though )
    Edit: You try to create AS on your TI calculator or other platform (not that anyone is doing that around here... )
    Edit2: The aliens accuse you of cheating

    Well...true...

    But now when we speak of that, lemme add this one, this is with 4 marines though...but still

    Wildcat: "Let's get this party started"
    Crash: "I'm ready"
    Jaeger: "EAT THIS!"
    Crash: "There's another one!"
    Flynn: "Got a job for me?"
    Jaeger: "EAT THIS!"
    Flynn: "Uh huh"

    And so on and so on...

    (And sry if u think this is off topic,just had to put this in)

    I saw that today and thought of this

    You play UT2k4 and forget all about the z-axis
    I did this last night when I was playing VCTF

    You keep looking for these so called vents in every building that can fit a full grown man inside them...
    Always done this

    While talking with people you randomly change the subject to alien swarm (even if they have no idea what it is) (kind of like anecdotes, but different)

    Your favorite smiley conveniently becomes bugged -- it won't display on other clients -- in the patch released the day after you decide to bind it to mouse4.
    Nearly all men can stand adversity -- if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.

    when u can play AS blindfold.
    Tip 1: use sentry as a stair case
    Tip 2: walk on active mines so when alien gets near you, they burn
