I'm more so into competitive 1 vs 1 tournament style games instead of team based games. With teams if you team sucks, you suck lol. Plus I'm not into the backstabbing mantra. Mano Y mano ;). Doom3 tournament style games are my favorite of them all. I've beaten most of the top players in the game including Fatality. Most recently the best Euro player (Sadface) on a euro server with 250 ping lmao. Sadface is extremely challenging and is really fun to vs :).
Man I used to play Q3 Arena on the Dreamcast a lot, used to think I was real good til I stepped online. Man was that comical. That was back when Sega allowed crossplay between PCs and consoles, felt like livin in the future, 56K modem aside. Anyway, I got my cocky ass handed to me every single time I rounded a corner. Tragic. M+K and single analog (lol) controller aren't remotely in the same sphere of existence when it comes to response time. And thus ended my rather short career as a "pro" Quake player

He owns Conan's sword though, which makes him kind of a badass now in my book.
Seriously though, the worst part about ol' Rob is his complacency. The man just doesn't bother to learn or improve. Sure, there's no real reason to considering he's not want for work at his current level of skill. But... considering how many superior artists get passed by the wayside, I can understand the resentment that gets tossed his way in artistic circles.
You know, it's funny cause I used to think Cable, and Deadpool and X-Force were the supreme hotness back in the days of yore. That's how Liefeld got you, he was channeling that bad boy MTV grit into his characters when everyone else looked lame and dorky in their squeaky clean spandex. Todd McFarlane too. Oh, and Marc Silvestri and... well, it's cyclical really.
My sister actually attended SVA in New York for cartooning and I joking requested for her to troll everyone by saying she was a huge fan of Liefeld, needless to say, none of her professors or peers were all that amused. It turns out that Rob is living the American Dream of success through mediocrity, got his foot (lol) in during a cynical time when meeting quotas was prioritized over quality, and that makes struggling artists and comics very mad indeed

I honestly have no idea.
Here's a picture of me at 23 (?) so I guess five years ago:
I don't have many pics of myself cause I'm a reclusive hermit, but I've hardly changed in that time.
A few guys used to call me Bruce in high school (after Bruce Lee), someone else said I looked like Die from Dir En Grey. My friend Jay thinks I resemble Jay Chou. I don't think I look like any of those people. It doesn't really matter, I look like Toshiro Mifune in my head anyway.
