Stop me before I buy again

I know I’ve been pretty quiet, mostly due to work, but I thought I’d talk about the wonderful QuakeCon promotion Valve is running wherin owning Bethesda-owned games (including of course stuff by id Software) gets you neat stuff in TF2. I think the neatest thing in there by far though is the rocket launcher based on the original one in Quake. They even made it so that when you have it equipped (it’s a Soldier weapon, natch), the weapon is in the center of your screen like it was in Quake. Where I think it was a bit odd though is that they tied it into owning Quake IV, instead of, oh say, the original Quake. I would’ve gone that route only because it would expose people to a classic like Quake, and because it’s less expensive. I’m not really complaining though, I now have a Genuine Original (Original being the name of the Quake Rocket Launcher in TF2), I’m thinking I’ll name it “7” and give it the description “HUAH HUAH HUAH HUAH HUAH HUAH HUAH”
