01 What's your gaming nickname and is there any particular reason why you chose it?

HeadHunter. I hear you thinking it isn't the most original name around... well... I used to play Blood with it, and after releasing Gods with my name on it, I think it just got stuck :)
02 Do you use a custom character config and, if so, how is it setup?
Strength : 3
Resistance : 4
Speed : 4
Focus : 1
03 What weapons do you include in your arsenal?
01 : Knife
02 : Flare gun
03 : Shotty
04 : Assault rifle
05 : Napalm launcher
06 : Vulcan cannon
07 : Howitzer
08 : Sniper rifle
09 : Death ray
10 : Tesla cannon
04 Do you prefer bloodbath, standard teamplay or CTF?
I think they're all great fun, but when it comes down to complete blood and destruction bloodbath wins hands down.
05 What maps are you best on?
Bloody ones :)
06 Which weapon do you think induces the most lag?
Of course the Vulcan cannon will because it fires the most bullets. _Duh_ :) (Another victory for the domineering reign of logic - Infern0)
07 What is the funniest kill you've performed or received?
Hmmmmm.... I don't know... they all just die sooo damn fast :)
08 What's your standard way of carrying out a humiliation death?
When they're down on the knees you do a bob up and down, spin around, and (if you time it right) you can shoot them down just as they're getting up again :)
09 What games do you play online apart from Blood 2?
Ultima Online
10 What is your all-time favourite weapon from any game?
Akimbo napalm launches from Blood 1. ahhhhh... the sweeeet destruction =)
11 What is your all-time favourite map from any game?
First level of Blood 1. It was a good first single player level, and had great layout for a bloodbath map.
12 What do you think the future holds for Blood 2?
After Gods 2 is released, it'll have no worries... =) (LoL! Now that's confidence :) - Infern0)
13 What tips do you have to share with your fellow bloodbathers?
1)Use the mouse. Why? Because you turn like a robot with anything else. 2)Never stop moving.... wait... you should stop moving. It'll make my job just that little bit easier :)
14 How can people contact you so they may try and damage your bloodbathing prowess?
If anyone knows a good Blood server in Australia then contact me any way ya can. Be waiting to waste yar ass!
15 What do you think about PlanetBlood and is there anything else you would like to see on it? (this is also the place where you can plug your sites)
I think The crypt could do with a link to Gods 2 (http://www.gods2.com). Oh... wait.. it does have a link. Wait! You don't have a link to the Gods 1 site (http://members.xoom.com/argh) now, do you? Nooooo. I'm sorry, but thats just not good enough. Just repeating that... Gods 2 can be found at... ;) (Oi! Answer the first part of the question, it's my only way of extorting feedback out of you crazy people :) - Infern0)
16 Do you yearn for the days of the build editors, or are you pleased with the new technology because of the freedom it brings?
The one thing I enjoyed the most about Build was in inventing new ways to manipulate the engine. I'm doubtful I'll ever get anything like what was in Gods working in Lithtech, but Reactor and I have some other things in store for Gods 2.... =) (plug plug)
17 Can you see yourself and Reactor starting anymore projects after Gods2 is completed?
I once started a mod for Quake called Persuader, which involved 'persuading' the enemies onto your side and making your armies fight each other. I actually had most the programming bit working, but the tasks of programmer, level designer and modeller soon weighed me down, and it was never finished. Now that I think about it, it would be nice to get that going for B2 (Oh God, not MORE work :)
18 Does anything beat the satisfaction of a job well-done?
Knowing that people really appreciate your job well-done.
Closing Comment : Cheers matey, now get back to work, hehe!
