3D Realms invaded

Well today was simply the weirdest, most surreal, and coolest Tuesday of my entire life.
It started out normal, the regular school crap, but then I drove out to Garland went to the mall and met up with Inanimate Carbon Rod.
It took me a minute to find him but when I did I just set down my sombrero on the seat next to his and we both grinned. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
The next hour is where the real fun began, we drove around and found the 3drealms office building and just walked right on in. We went up to their floor went to their suite number and knocked on the door, Weider immediately opened the door and said "What do you want?"
I was in enough shock that Inanimate had to do the talking. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
"We're here to see Joe Siegler."
"Okay, come on in....
Hey Joe these guys are here to see you."
(Joe getting fragged on Quake 3)
"Hey Joe, I'm Tip."
"And I'm Inanimate."
"Huh?"
"We're from the forums"
"What!?"
The look on Joe's face was priceless. [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
The very next thing he said was, "No you can't see it."
Well I didn't see THAT coming. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
We nearly got a peek at Max Payne 2 but Joe was too quick for us. [img]graemlins/tinyted.gif[/img]
He hunted around for the other staff members but they were in a meeting so he showed us the mappers area, mainly the ceiling, lots and lots of half naked women pasted on the ceiling. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Then we got to meet George Broussard, who was also VERY shocked to see that we actually showed up (despite our warnings) and he was very cool to talk to.
Inanimate and I talked to him about everything from DNF to Max Payne 2 to NOLF 2 and even some Half Life 2.... hmmm lots of 2s.
He also gave us a tour around the office. I almost convinced him to make me and Inanimate into NPCs for DNF. So close... so very close.
Anyways, awesome awesome day, I got to meet most of the 3dr guys and I got to see and hear things I probably shouldn't have with Inanimate and his camera as my witness. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
Don't bother asking us for info about DNF, the tidbits we found out about are not going to be divulged to anyone.

Tip, go answer your email. I tried sending email to the account you have associated with the UBB here, and it bounced. Said it's full.

Also, you posted the same pic twice in your list above. Did you just post it twice, or did you forget about something?

It was funnier the way that I said it, and it was more clear the way I originally said it but Inanimate thought I was saying too much or something so I changed it.
As for the pic being posted twice, that was a slip. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Tip, you my friend are the luckiest guy I have heard of. I would rather have been you today than have Britney Spears, Carmen Electra and that hot blonde girl from lizzie mcguire show up at my door nekkid and ask if they could use my bathtub(with me).

I would LOVE to live near 3dr. I live near Philadelphia PA and it looks like I will never meet Joe and George (they are my idols).

I would rather take a peep in the dressing room of the overweight middle-aged 3d realms employees (if DNF was running inside) than the dressing room of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.

The guards that were supposed to shoot forum goers have been fired and replaced with better guards. The next attempt to get in here won't be so lucky.

I agree with Joe. The next attempt will end in death, especially if they put Ruben and his Lovin' Lamb out there on guard. What a scary scary man. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
