    You know you've played too much Republic Commando when:

    - You toss grenades through every door you open, thinking there's enemies on the other side.

    - You look at a tree and assume there's a power generator inside it.

    - You think "lizards" are Transoshans.

    - You start to see a crosshair in front of your eyes when you look away from the screen.

    - You pay no heed to personal harm, thinking you can just recall your squad to revive you.

    - You shoot large birds, thinking they are Geonosions.

    That's all I've got, anyone got anything to add?

    When you start making the hand signals for 'regroup' and 'secure area' when you're with your friends and wonder why they don't respond to them.

    You start humming Vode An without any provocation.

    You can remember every number of the clones in the game and can understand what the wookies are saying.

    You wonder why no one has made Katarn armour yet (although I have heard a rumour....)

    - You go up to random people in the street and try to stab them with a wrist-mounted vibroblade

    - You try to build a working dc-17

    It should be noted that so far I have about 50% of these symptoms (though the crosshair thing is from a combination of RC and Halo).

    I have the dangerous symptom of wishing I had a HUD when I'm out on the ranges so that I can actualyl see what I'm shooting at. Or a tele scope. I hate iron sights. Call of Duty just can't get them right for sheer annoyance factor. You can't see shit with them.

    - You call the English language "basic"

    - When in the dark, you wonder why your low-light visor mode is not working

    - You tell your grandma to "breach" the front door (true story).

    - Certain clone numbers stick out for you everywhere, like 1138. I tend to look at the clock when it says "11:38" or "1:38".

    - You wonder why blood and oil doesn't splatter your visor after stabbing/punching an enemy when playing a different FPS.

    when you look at certain inanimate objects, you wonder why there isnt any hologram of a squadmate with the caption: execute:sniper/grenade/door breach position

    - When looking at a far off object you attempt to switch to the sniper attatchment and zoom in.

    - You order your friends to "take up sniper positions", "re-arrange some archetecture" etc.

    - Suddenly, instead of a name, you have a number and nickname.

    - You start to feel you don't officially exist to the Republic your Government.

    Depends on what side your on and under what circumstances.

    However if i don't officially exist, I'm going looting...

    Imagine the havok that could be achieved though.

    Or rather the havok that would not be achieved because I am not likely to leave the refuge of my house or, in fact, stop playing video games for long enough to establish a reign of terror.

    Perhaps just a light shower of terror.

    Or a drizzle of terror?


    I'm English. We get every type of rain here bar the monsoon style (though it has been debated at times)


    I'll take a flash flood of terror. It appears without warning, and fucks off quickly, but the damage it leaves behind is very tasty (or is that wet?)

    ......


    I get the feeling I'm stretching this metaphor too far.

    You're not joking though, I lived in England most of my life, I was twelve before I learned that i could take a coat off.

    My grandparents joined the navy because it was so much dryer out at sea.

    I have about a hundred of these jokes, although most were origionally Rhod Gilberts.
