Unreal Championship 2: "If I had a dollar..."
Posted: Wednesday April 6th, 2005 by

I gave the Unreal Championship 2 demo a go this past weekend. And, for the most part, I liked what I saw. It's your regular ol' first person shooter, until you get in close, then you have to switch to melee weapons or you'll get freakin creamed. The melee twist is a nice change, and almost feels like a 3D fighter.

Anywho, one of the characters is an undead chick named Lauren, low hp/armor high agility. When she's running around getting her ass handed to her she likes to pass along taunts that fall far short of instilling fear. It's just so matter of fact; it's funny.

"I shed black tears for you" was one of her actual quotes. And there's 8 million ways I could respond to that, most of them terribly rude, but when it came to the comic, I thought it would be fun to remove the characters from their usual element, put them in a casual, "morning coffee" kinda situation.

The hint of ironic circumstance appeals to my sense of humor. **shrugs** Ultimately, I think it's the coffee mug that gets me.

Anyone else played the demo yet?

Today's Pimpage: Torgr is drinking from the STFU mug from ThinkGeek.
