Another form of camping, typically found in large-scale deathmatch games with large open maps such as Halo, Battlefield and Call of Duty, is called sniping.

The main theme song to the movie is the "Digi Rap", a remixed and re-working of the theme song from the TV series'. The track is performed by M.C. Pea Pod & Paul Gordon.

History [edit]

In the game, players are designated by two alphanumeric characters, where the first character represents the team and the second letter represents the individual designation of that player. There are four teams, Federation, Klingon, Romulan, and Orion, identified as F, K, R, and O, and 16 player slots, numbered 0-9 and then a-f (hexadecimal numbering). Thus, for example, a player on the Federation team in the 11th of the 16 player slots would be designated "Fb" (FED or Federation team, player B), or a player in the first slot who was playing on the Romulan team would be "R0" (ROM or Romulan team, player 0). There were four "reserved" slots that could only be used by local administrators, identified with g-j (these have since been reallocated for use by observers who wish to watch the game). While the game has four teams, normally only two are used at a time, with the unused teams' planets being used as part of the playing field.

During a full game on a Netrek server at CMU during the 1990-91 school year, a member of the Federation team, Stephen Russell (callsign Feakhelek), was heading into Romulan space to capture a planet. The server administrator, Terence Chang, came in on the first reserved slot on the otherwise-empty Orion team, thus being designated as "Og". Instead of engaging in a dogfight, Chang charged in suicidally, failing to kill the Federation ship but leaving it badly damaged. When Og re-spawned, and again charged the now-crippled ship, the Fed player shouted to other people in the workstation cluster, "Help, it's oh-gee!", followed by cries of "It's ogg! It's ogg! Help!". The second suicide attack worked, prompting the Fed player to broadcast "Arrrgh, I was Og'ed" on the in-game message system.

This style of music is sometimes used to comedic effect in mass media such as film, where intense or dramatic scenes may be interrupted or interspersed with such anodyne music while characters use an elevator (e.g. The Spongebob Squarepants Movie, The Blues Brothers, Dawn of the Dead, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Spider-Man 2).

japan thinks english is really cool that they shove it in everything. gives it a certain je ne sais quoi, if you will. they of course have a word for "battle", but the english loanword is really cool so why would you use the old crufty word

zerbert
The other definitions have the right meaning (a sloppy kiss where you blow, making a farting sound,) but this spelling and pronunciation have diverged from the original, and should be considered incorrect.

This word was first introduced on "The Cosby Show", (Season 2, Episode 11) and explicitly spelled out "ZRBTT". It was also clearly pronounced without the final "r" sound given here. It was spelled repeatedly by several characters. The subtitles as aired on the show spelled it "Zurbitt" when Bill Cosby was pronouncing it as if it were a real word. Part of the joke of this word is that it's a nonsense spelling without vowels.

In the episode, Vanessa was practicing for a spelling test, and Rudy kept interrupting, asking what a series of nonsense letters spelled. The following, including spelling, is taken from the subtitles as transmitted.
Rudy: Vanessa, what does "Q-N-G-H" spell?

Vanessa: Nothing. Give me another word.

Rudy: What does "Z-R-B-T-T" spell?

Vanessa: Nothing!

Rudy: How come when you spell it's a word and when I spell it it's nothing?

Vanessa: Dad, I'm studying very hard for the spelling test, and she keeps asking dumb questions.

Cliff: I don't think anybody asks dumb questions. What's your problem?

Rudy: What does "Z-R-B-T-T" spell?

Cliff: "Z-R-B-T-T" spell? Uh... That's zurbitt. Zurbitt... uh.. You know what I think a zurbitt is? I just remembered. A zurbitt is this:

(makes zrbtt on Rudy's cheek.)

The final boss is the opponent that is usually at the end of the game. They are usually the main antagonists of the game. Final bosses usually have their own special music tracks that are more dramatic than the music for the other bosses, and some final battles have the main theme of the game. The final boss is often fought during the final level, and after its defeat often is the end of the game. The levels they inhabit are usually heavily guarded by smaller enemies, making the route to the final boss difficult. Minibosses may be encountered en route to the final boss. It may also be that the final boss appears after the completion of additional levels, or after finding a few items and the hero gains a stronger form and fights with the true final boss.
