Gaming, Modding and Computing Stuff.

The gaming scene has been pretty quiet on my end. Work from University has started to pile up. Although I did get a chance to play a short match of Supreme Commander with a couple of my friends, admittedly this "short" match was about 3 and a half hours long. Can't complain though: UEF for the win!!!

Saw the new videos and screenies of the Stargate: Empire at War mod and they look good.

General Stuff.

As per the forum "What's the Story", I am now going to attempt to explain the origin of my screen name: [SCARECROW]. This is going to take a while.

Part 1 - Background Information:
SCARECROW is the call sign of the character Shane M. Schofield in Matthew Reilly's novels: Ice Station, Area 7, Scarecrow and Hell Island. (These books are a good read, by the way. Read them in order!). He is a Captain in the USMC and he tends to do unorthodox (crazy) things in combat situations.

Part 2 - What happened:
So a few years back, I was playing Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield with a group of friends.
In a certain round, I was in a tower (more or less, check the MP Prison map if you have the game) providing sniper cover for my team. This tower had a hole in the floor where you could climb up into it via a long ladder.

2 members of the opposition team were at the bottom of this tower and detected me using a heartbeat sensor, then they threw a grenade up into the tower. I heard the grenade land on the floor, and like SCARECROW I choose to jump out of the window.

Usually a fall from that height would kill, but I got lucky. They thought that they had killed me, so they went up into the tower to check. I on the other hand pulled out my heartbeat sensor, saw that they were in the tower and threw a grenade back in through the window.

This killed them. When they heard what happened they commented that SCARECROW would do something like that, so I started using the nickname [SCARECROW]. And that's where my screen name came from.

Wow. That took a while, not that anyone really cares..

Signing Out.

Good Gaming and Good Modding.
[SCARECROW]

True, but has Ding ever driven an E-3 Sentry AWACS into a giant elevator shaft? (In fiction SCARECROW did that)
