Smile Tippmann 98 Custom - Is It Any Good?

The Tippmann 98 Custom, is it any good?

Time change quickly and markers fall fast behind the new innovative ones, however for the time period it was brought into the industry and the duration in which it was most prominently used make it a notoriously well known, respected and trusted marker!

well you know how most of us feel about mil-sim....

The tippman was a solid starter marker until kingmann stepped up the game and tippman sold out.

merry christmas as well!

It's a generic entry-level blowback. Shrug.

I mostly agree.

I would ammend to generic, but slightly overpriced for it's feature set compared to some other generic entry level blowbacks.

The racing game was released at the advent of MMX technology - with new...was it Compaq?...personal computers.


Episode 1 was May 1 1999


MMX was introduced on March 22, 1993

Soo...unless we're talking about a different racing game... pretty safe to say that POD came before Pod Racing..

oh - wow...yeah...damn. Bit early for me to get involved in reference catching and conversation tracking.


P.O.D - weren't they a late 90's christian-esque rock band...sorta like Creed..with balls?...which probably parlayed into Scarpz's video as they were part of the musical selection.


Though - I've learned better than to click any provided links from randoms or individuals that I don't have an esteemed relationship with.... Been RickRolled and pr0n bombed one too many times.

ohhh, it's music in the video. I didn't bother clicking on that either.

Creed wasn't a self-proclaimed christian band, but P.O.D. was.

that screenshot above reminded me of F-zero

F-Zero - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

raise your hand if you loved this game!

on a side note, i never knew there was a plot and it was a series of games!!!

F-Zero on SNES was a really good time. I remember there being a loose storyline - but to get it, you'd have to read the character interaction between races, and watch the intro-reel.

Then again - back when I got my SNES (age 13?...28-13 = 15 years ago?) I was a bit more interested in playing the game, and less interested in letting the opening animations play.
