You mentioned him, even if not by name, and I had to look.

My last saved PM from PositiveG was in Aug, 2009. We were talking about a hurricane headed his way. I had PM's saved from a bunch of "departed folks". Kevin's are the only two left.

Armed Assault I and the SimHQ crew... So many great folks involved. I think Adlabs, Panzer, Dart and myself are about the only ones I have "seen" here lately. Used to see JoJo once in awhile. Jedi, Magnum, Wepps, Biff, XRoC, and so many other great people, we were playing with like 20+ humans a few nights a week. Heck we even roped in Chris (BeechAV8R) and many others. Following and including the huge IL2 gaggle we had, it was SimHQ's glory days IMHO.

So many gone we know of, and no doubt many of the "poof" and gone folks have joined them.

I started a list awhile back...too hard.

It wasn't arma. Arma we played at the end, but I think before that it was Delta Force Black Hawk Down.

I do have fond memories of playing Arma with the crew though.


The word "Martyr" is just a fancy name for "crappy fighter".

Maybe a Tom Clancy thing?

Arma was right up there in "audience" participation though.

That would be Joint Ops! It’s hard to believe we were playing that game over 15 years ago. I believe the game came out in 2004?

edit: Yep, it was 2004!

That's the one! I was looking for it. Good times. Riding into battle on the little birds, driving the lavs. Good times.

I miss +G. !S

Interestingly, I too had a heart attack at age 43.

He was a great guy. I miss him.

Joint Ops was a really great COOP game. Sometimes a little Run and Gun, but still took some strategery. Loved using the Sniper/Helo teams
I don't recall, if you died did you respawn back in, or have to wait until match was over?

I'm pretty sure you could respawn after waiting a couple of minutes. At least that's how I remember the SimHQ matches being set up.

That's what I remember too, although I think the spawn points could be far from the action.

If you want a game that can be played coop that is good, Insurgency Sandstorm is nice, and Ground Branch looks really good (its in early access, and is still a little rough, but lots of fun).

Is anyone still in touch with +G's family? I'd love to send a note to his kid, telling him how much I cared for his dad, and how nice and caring he was.

I distinctly remember joining TS a few minutes early for the weekly "Military Monday" session for ArmA and Positive G was already on the server so we spoke for a few minutes until the other players showed up. This was about one week before he passed away.

His last post was before Christmas; 9 months ago.

I will try to contact him.
