Mr. Hyde

Those that know me in real life would probably vouch for my rather long fuse. On the extremely rare occasion when I've found myself seething with rage in a social situation, I've been known to politely ask if I can take a break from the conversation so I can cool off and come back with a clear head. This is, however, the opposite of how I game competitively which is, of course, as an absolute dill-hole of the highest magnitude. A taunting, filthy, and loud-mouthed example of Gabe's G.I.F.T. It can be unnerving even for me, but as long as the those around me are willing to tolerate it (they aren't always, and fairly), I admit to enjoying the catharsis.

  1. Wow, I'm thinking back now and remembering discovering this about you. I watched you play networked games of Descent and some Quake variant a few times at work. I think you even warned me the first time. I still wasn't prepared. :)

    You were a ridiculously good Descent player, though, so for the sake of watching awesomeness, I risked my own death due to overexposure to verbal nastiness.

    Edit: the word verification for this post was "swealot". Coincidence? Clearly not.

  2. I have a witness! Sorry about that.

    I was thinking about doing a writeup of my longest-running multiplayer infatuations, and Descent would certainly be in it.

    And Swealot! Perfect.
