Merry Christmas!

On behalf of all of the staff members here at SEN, I wish you all a Merry Christmas, and in a week from today, a Happy New Year. I didn't have a chance to interview the staff for 2017, so instead, enjoy the best shouts I could find for each of them! Now, context is important, so I've edited the messages to disambiguate what was trying to be conveyed.

Quote from DevliN

DevliN -- I've been doing little more than paying [Roy] for a [job well done] now, so [making him an admin is] fine with me. :)
Quote from NudeRaider

NudeRaider -- It depends. I guess we can agree on that people that just consume [Vespene gas] are more likely to be [Protoss tryhards] (I'm oversimplifying here to make a point) which are more likely to be depressed as opposed to people that like to [cannon rush] and thus also communicate more when [stomping their foes]. But if you excessively use [cheese], I can see it actually changing you / your mood, simply because you're doing nothing but spending time [winning] on the Internet.
Quote from Devourer

[Devourer] -- I like how in a normal raffle, the 50% or whatever that doesn't go to the jackpot goes to some cause or charity, but in our raffle the other 50% of the ticket prices just gets lost into [my pocket].
Quote from O)FaRTy1billion[MM]

O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- if you don't need [video game consoles] then it's fine, they are just generally more versatile ([Nintendo] switches, [Xbones], general use [smartphones]) and predictable (no [BSODs]) than just [PCs] when using [cards that should be mining cryptocurrencies] so people often use them for everything even if they're not really necessary
Quote from Excalibur

Excalibur -- This is what I'm trying to get at: Who I am, what I've done in the past, or what I personally think is not relevant no matter how much your feelings say they are. The only relevant thing is my [ribeye steak]. And since you can't [eat] that, you can only tell me about your [hunger] and about what you feel is [an adequate companion beverage], then you aren't presenting a case of [wine to go with the steak]. You're presenting a case [of light beer]. And if you're looking for the [approval of pairing a slab of cow meat with cheap, unsophisticated swill] you've come to the wrong place.

Lanthanide -- D2 sound design not nearly as good, but it's a far faster game
[08:58 pm]
Lanthanide -- most of the monsters were very distinct just from their sounds (vipers were a bit meh, in particular), and given the slow methodical nature of D1, listening for monster sounds played a big part in how you progressed
[08:57 pm]
Lanthanide -- Diablo 1 had amazing sound design, skeletons sounded so great to kill
[08:57 pm]
Lanthanide -- if you listen to SC2 sound effects, particularly spells via an mpqeditor, they're all just generic womps and wisp sounds
[08:56 pm]
Lanthanide -- the sounds in SC1 are a bit cartoony, like d.matrix and irradiate sound effects, but they clearly stand-out from anything else in the game
[07:17 pm]
Pr0nogo -- yeah, hard to do worse than FK
[07:12 pm]
Voyager7456 -- so this'll be a step up then
[07:09 pm]
Pr0nogo -- @voy i can't believe you'd request that i stream that map when i've been playing fucking flame knives for 3-4 hours twice a week smh
[07:07 pm]
Pr0nogo -- so when a bunch of explosions are the same (sc2) you're not going to be able to read things as easily
[07:07 pm]
Pr0nogo -- sound is a big part of readability too, especially in 3d games where readability tanks due to incompetent graphics artists (and all blizz games have pretty ass particles, see war3 etc)
