Ah! 4 years ago, UQM was released… this means that I NEVER left my seat since then!
Whoa, and I thought that pain I feel in my stomach was because Juffo-Wup fills in my fibers and I grow turgid…

When you start a project to recreate the game, from scratch.

When you return home from work and run along a large building for a gravity whip. (And why do you want home?! For UQM!!!!)

When you sleep with your window open because you want to meet an Ariloulaleelay (as they say in the credits).

And...
When you write notes for posts on this forum on every sheet of paper you find (just as I do  Wink).

You phone to the 'PKUNKRA' number and ask : "What will happen to the Pkunk? I'm worried."  Smiley

When you refer to Fwiffo as though he's you best friend and the Chenjesu as gods.

When you can understand the Mycon and even reply in kind.

When you find yourself sympathising with the Kor-Ah

I think you're more a fan of the game's universe than of the game itself, then, guesst and Draxas.

I think the game is great (though the universe definitely is what does it for me), I've just beaten it beyond death so many times at this point, that a playthrough from start-to-finish is really just for "old times sake" at this point.

Super Melee still rocks my socks, though.

Ah, same goes for me.

...you wonder how to hook up the Quasispace Portal Spawner to you bicycle so you can get home from work a bit faster.

...When you enter science class to find the room full of colorful ball-and-stick atom models, and mutter "Huffi-Muffi-Guffi" in the hope that it indeed is some sort of miniature Spathi fleet parked before your eyes.

...You look at Jupiter or another gas giant in the hope that you'll see glowy bits.

.. You ask your wife to dress up as Talana and "show you the hidden functionality of my uniform - knife included!"

Until I die, I will never forget the first time I experienced that wonderful space station.

I also like to say "HAR HAR HAR" to people, but they think it's just a psycho laugh.

good times, good times.

When you say that "Zn" is the symbol for the Zelnick element instead of zinc. Just what I just did.

when you're attacked by a mugger, and you exclaim: "Hold! What you are doing is wrong! Why do you do this thing?"

I think that's crossing the line between addiction and stupidity.

You know you're addicted when, after 15 years, the game still remains in your all time top 10, and you've already reccommended it to basically everyone you know at least twice.
