Just a little bump, for the new generation, and the members of the old generation that are still looking.
Almost 6 years ago, and even then Avara seemed like a distant memory.
Bring the noise.
Time to start planning the ten year release anniversery.
I thought I was hot s### the first day or two of release when I managed to kill vetere in Icebox. Ahh, it was all downhill (for my college grades, anyway) from there...
Every six or nine months I get a bizzare urge, and poke at Avara a little bit. I played a few hours last week, I sux rox, and the application itself isn't glass smooth, like I remember it being. Darn emulation. Pretty soon, it won't be playable at all on the new Intel machines. I suppose then the game will finally die.
I haven't really been involved in any internet game communities since Avara . I guess it was the fact that Avara was so, well, unsuccessful (putting it bluntly), that made the community fun for me. I knew everyone I played against, as opposed to playing random stranger number #25498. I played a lot, but was never more than a slightly above average player...I don't have all the fast twitch muscle response, apparently. Malkavian waxed me on a regular basis, the arrogant little prick.
To all my former AA compatriots--this beer is for you. Icebox Classic forever.
