In Topic: The Things You Say...

27 August 2008 - 06:33 PM

We had a Nerf picnic in the park for my birthday this year. Needless to say a lot of kids came by pretty interested in what all these grown adults were doing with toys. Naturally, we all tried to keep our language clean. I kept nearly getting headshots on my wife (not on purpose) and one velcro one even got tangled in her hair. Finally I hit her on the lip, and she says:

"You shot it at my mouth! At least it's not in my hair!"

All the adults fall down laughing. All the kids stare even more perplexed. It's damn good to Nerf with your girl :)

I'm all for sacrificing ultra-realism for the sake of fun. Good call putting a top speed on the ships.

Glad to see another game developer on these forums! Keep up the good work.

Vinyl Dye! Krylon Fusion can't hold a candle to the spray-on Duplicolor stuff you can find in automotive stores. I've used both, and won't ever go back to Krylon Fusion. The dye doesn't look like a paint job, it looks like factory made colored plastic.

In Topic: Scout Modification (simple Mod)

I appreciate Scout mods. It reminds me of cleaning garbage cans. When your work is done, you scratch your head and wonder "why?".

Best mod for a Scout in my humble opinion: Remove the slide and glue it to another gun (so you can put neat N-Strike accessories on say a SSII) then throw out the rest :ph34r:

In Topic: Your Biggest Nerf Regret

09 April 2008 - 06:36 PM

I remember passing by the Powerclip when it was on it's way out at TRU because the clip wasn't removable (they were clearanced for $8 each). At least I bought 4 Blastfires for $4 each. I spent big bucks on a BBB on eBay about 3 months before their re-release. I deliberately avoided those Vortex ring-shooters because they weren't "Nerf". I've modded 2 Scouts, and that's time I'll never get back.

I've given away or thrown out:

1) Manta-Ray
2) Bow'n'Arrow
3) SM5K
4) Uruk-Hai Crossbow (for those that don't know, that thing could put holes in a tank).

My biggest regret, though? Motorized Ballzooka. I hope I'm not alone on that one.
