Name That Quakefish!
A bizarre set of circumstances lands YOU with a chance to snag some GameSpy gear!
  — by Lee'Mon


It was not until I was on the airplane home that I opened the box. Much to my suprise, the Quakefish was not the ancient artifact I had once perceived it to be. Rather, moving around in its small glass bowl, the Quakefish was nothing other than a... a fish.

The fish in question.

"THIS is the mysterious power of the ages?!?" I thought to myself.

There was no mistaking the power I had felt when I first touched the Quakefish. But how could my skills improve merely with the possession of a fish? Where was the source of this power? Was it the fish itself? Was it the water? The bowl?

Or, perhaps, was the power inside of me, all along? Could the Quakefish merely be a token of what I was truly searching for... my own self-confidence? Could the secret to better fragging be merely to believe?

I thought for a brief moment, then realized the truth. "NAH!!!"

I already knew the secret. Abandon all social life, spend every dime on the latest system, and devote one's total life to fragging. There was no mystical Zen secret or magic token that would grant frags; only practice.

I shook my head at the time I had spent essentially chasing rainbows. What a fool I'd been. I looked down at my newfound pet. Well, at least I got a free fish out of it.

I then heard the old man's words whispering through the plane. "Give the Quakefish a worthy name," the wind (well, the vents) said again. I looked down again. What the hell was I going to name this thing?!?


Introducing: The Quakefish Contest

Our resident ranter, Lee'Mon, has mysteriously obtained a Japanese fighting fish that requires a name. In true lunatic fashion, Lee'Mon has demanded that this "Quakefish," as he calls it, have the best Quake-related name available. Unfortunately, due to his current mental state, Lee'Mon lacks the mental capacity to devise such a name for himself.

Consequently, we thought we'd dig up some GameSpy gear, and make a contest out of it!


"Name The Quakefish" Contest Rules


Reader Write-in

Put on your thinking caps, and email Lee'Mon with your own original suggestions for Quakefish names. The rules are as follows:

1. The name must be based on one of the following sources:

A. The Quake and/or Doom series of games
B. PlanetQuake, its staff, or any of its hosted sites.
C. Any well-known modification for Quake/Quake II/Quake III Arena.
D. EXTREMELY well-known members of the Quake community (translation: Lee'Mon must have heard of them.)

2. The name should be relatively suitable for a fish.
3. The only explicitly forbidden name is "Dopefish." It's far too easy.
4. You may use one of the bots from Q3A as a name, but you must give a good reason why it should be named for that bot.
5. In case of duplicate names, the first one in Lee'Mon's email Inbox gets the credit.
6. All Quakefish name-related decisions, including entry order and the official name of the Quakefish, are the decision of Lee'Mon, and are final.

Email your suggestion to leemon@planetquake.com. Please include "Quakefish" in the subject.

Entries are due by midnight on Friday, April 21st. Lee'Mon will select the best entries over the weekend, and the winner will be announced on Monday, April 24th.


Prizes

First place name, as chosen by Lee'Mon, will receive a GameSpy gift pack, featuring a GameSpy T-shirt, mug, 3M mousing surface, and both a GameSpy3D registration and a RadioSpy registration. Two second-place finalists will each receive a GameSpy T-shirt.

So get out there, and start naming!
