My gosh that was awesome....

Soo jealouse right now.

War, war never changes.

Thankyou for putting the Nerf CEO's kids through college!

I am incredibly jealous of your workplace!

You guys are at the very forefront in the field of dicking around. One might even call you pioneers. For this, you should be highly commended.

So, got any jobs going? I'll make the coffee or something, y'won't even have to pay me...

You guys have the greatest job ever, I'm so jealous.

Oh, one other thing I should mention: Attendance at this particular company event was mandatory. Meetings, you can miss, but Nerf war? Nope, your ass better be there.

Whoever brought in the vulcan (minigun) is fucking awesome. More companies need to do cool stuff like this.

Actually, just about every game developer we've visited on The Escapist Show has one prominently displayed somewhere. Whether they've actually been used in battle, I can't say for sure. ;)

Man, war is hell, huh?

Looked like a ton of fun, other than maybe the world's slowest escort quest ever...

Heheheh the Strategy "Give Susan the Chaingun........you win"

Or the power sword either way. It would be funny to have people shouting "For the Emperor!"

This made my day.

That was Spinwiz's. In fact he had another gun earlier in the day but decided to go back to Target and exchange it for the Vulcan. It looks impressive, but it jammed ALL the time. I'm pretty sure that's why our team didn't win. :)

It could only have been more epic is Dio himself was there performing live while the slaughter raged on.

There needs to be a nerf bomb or explosive. Something you can attach to a wall that has a proximity sensor that will explode chunks of nerf shrapnel if a person gets too close or hits a trip wire or something. Remote detonation?

Someone get on this!!!

Dio! Rock on!

Man, that looked like fun. I gotta get my grubby paws on some Nerf guns.

When it worked it was awesome...when it didn't, it at least SOUNDED awesome :)

I had a Nerf football I wanted to use as a grenade, but I wasn't allowed.

My gun worked best when handed to someone else. :)

What this video does not show is the absolute havoc that can result from proper use of the sword. A berserker charge that won a round for our team...

...at the cost of my pants :(

That was my knee all skinned up in the video. It happened because I was the one leading the CEO back to our base (I was transferred off the bizdev team to the editorial team to even out the number). See, in order to win the round, you had to lead the CEO back to your particular base. If someone shot you, you dropped everything and fell down until one of your team's medics run over and slapped you with a piece of paper that just said "Medic" on it. Then you got up where you fell and continued fighting. So, I had the medics camping me and I kept dying/rezzing/dying/rezzing/etc while I lead the CEO back to our base.

Btw, the CEO makes for good cover.

Certain berserkers don't notice when they are hit with the nerf guns from the spawn point they turned their back to. *cough* *cough* :p

I want to have a nerf war. That would be awesome.

good god man that was epic, thats what life should be like

*cough*yeah*cough*

Also, that first quote in the video with the expletive...that was me, directed at a certain berserking sword-wielding editor.

The video doesn't do justice to the overall mayhem we all encountered.

Yeah I think that was my fault. I killed you three times during that escort, in a row. hahaha. I pretty much waited for you to get revived to kill you again!

Team Hollywood:
Nerf Wars: The Battle for Themis

In the sixth month of the year 2009 and epic battle took place...

Watch Video

You guys clearly have far too much time on your hands! :D

On another note, do you think you might have any job openings any time soon?

What is also not mentioned in this video is that Team 1 *coughmyteamcoughcough* was victorious. But sadly, our VIP did not triumph in the VIP smackdown.

I brought a sword to a gun fight :(

In this case, using a sword is like bringing Force Choke to a wrestling match. You weren't wrong to choose the sword - you just got stuck in the open with it.

Dude, I shot you before you got to me. Right in the trunk. BOOM. Man (&pants) down!

Honey, that's called griefing. Tsk.

How much were all those Nerf guns?

Oh, and you guys have such a neat looking office.

wow... thats why im a member of this site, and why its one of the ones i frequent. you guys are awesome, and bring a sense to the community that we actually know our mods and staff. thanks for the great video, i only wish i coulda been there. furthermore

[quote="Baby Tea" post="6.124920.2586179"][quote="Danny Ocean" post="6.124920.2586141"]Staff Vs. Community! Yes! Brilliant! This must be done! By the power of greyskull!

If not in real life, then at least in an MMOFPS or something!

seconded!! team fortress two baby!!!

Vulcan FTW Vulcan FTW. That was awesome. I could see someone modifying their gun. I think it was a maverick also it would be cooler if everyone had vulcans.
The only thing this battle needed was if everyone went in charging like Marcus Fenix did in the Gears 2 cinematic. Maybe the CEO instead of the drone?

quite funny :) good acting especially it looked like a really corny movie.(thats a good thing)

It's uncertain how much the Nerf guns cost. Believe it or not, that entire arsenal is owned by individual employees. We all brought all the Nerf guns we individually own in, and shared. So yes, almost everyone who works here has their own (or several) Nerf weapons. I originally bought mine to defend myself against Virgil. He worked directly across the hall from me, and would occasionally pelt me with foam from a distance.

2ed most epic nerf battle ever.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVKnF26qFFM <------- that is the most epic so far.

but still good guys. Also how did u get all the nerf guns............ let me guess *thinks about it* O_O
