nothing we here at PQ love more than getting reader feedback
on everything we do here. Well, okay, that's not quite true
-- we love making fun of reader feedback even more. And that's
why we have the PQ Mailbag! Read what your fellow gamers think
of the hard-hitting editorials, the probing interviews, and
the illegal pictures we post regularly in the PQ

I'm still here. More or less.
Gestalt is released back into the community after his brutal
assault on his computer last weekend...
Gah! I can't take this much longer...
"Come and see the vilence inherent in the system! Help! Help!
I'm being repressed!"
The Mailbag switches to Sunday to take on a more religious
tone as evidence of God playing Thief : The Dark Project is
uncovered. Plus violence in computer games, point releases,
and the games that are on your hard drives.
Of course video games don't cause vilence you f*cking moron.
Come back here while I'm still talking to you or I'll beat
the f*cking cr*p out of you. THIS IS MY BOOMSTICK!
A funky drunken monkey is rehabilitated into society, plus
getting the horn, customization (is that even a word?), and
a song of remembrance for Quake II.
Iraq's secret weapons deal with the Makron is revealed, plau
Quake Lithium Arena, more funky music, the usual procession
os idiots, and Thief, the game that's already robbed me of
$3 and several hours...
With Gestalt soaking up monitor radiation (and beer) at a
bit UK LAN party this weekend, the mailbag is donated to a
Does it really matter how we pronounce gib? Do I really care
if you think those small chunks of meat are named after a
member of the Bee Gees, and not giblets like everyone else
(including John Carmack) believes? Can't we all just agree
Another batch of mail about the future of the Quake community
in the face of the current glut of first person shooters,
plus the usual freak mails, bandwidth blues, rodent hygiene
and the one true pronunciation of "gib".
The usual gibberish.
The answer to gibs, the universe and everything? 42 of course.
There is no end to the patch war in sight.
Trick or Treat! It's the Gestalt Halloween mask. Plus the
return of V/UrD M45Ta, magic grenades, the stupid answer to
life the universe and everything. Oh, and Patches .. agairial There's a suprise...
Mailbag v3.22 was released today, fixing some video problems
with previous releases and including a new Shut The FAQ Up.
Please note this is just an alpha patch and probably still
has some bugs in it, not to mention funky drunken monkeys
and rotting banana skins...
What, none of you know David Holmes? Jeezus .. uncultured
yobs. Oh well. This week we have plenty of gutter-level action,
including butt cam jokes and the magic words "anal seepage".
Like me mate Paul says - Wwe got warez, we got siamese monkeys,
we ot, we got good whores man, we got fine whines to hook
up with, we got the best crack, we got ROCK, we got captain
chrunch .. we got everything you want man."
OEM ShareWarez version is out!
But don't even think about asking me where to find it...
Pitch your tent, whip out your rocket launcher, it's time
to go camping! This week campers stage a sit-in protest at
the Mailbag, while the funky drunken monkeys are reclaimed
from lost property, Immortal and Kimble grag it out, and Fragmaster
comes out of retirement to show why he's no longer Content
You all cheated on last week's homework, so as punishment
you have to read through this week's mailbag in it's entirety.
Pay close attention - I'll be asking questions later.
Gestalt returns from ECTS with a bog of goodies and a hangover
to end the world, only to find that his funky drunken monkeys
have been taken hostage.
With Gestalt on his wat to ECTS and the funky drunken monkeys
impounded by customs, the last best hope for Mailbag was ..
Fargo. This is a dark, dark day indeed...
Air control confusion, more llamas, hardware addiction, the
right to ramble, shirtless fat slobs, and a lost psalm from
the Quaker's Bible...
Fruitcake. Lots of it. In nice slices. With a dash of funky
monkeys, llamas, squirrels and a nice little pharmaceuticals
plant .. sorry .. weapons factory for Bill and the boys to
play with. Be good now.
Does anyone actually read this description? Do you ever read
it and think "oh, cool, I must read Mailbag this week"?
Or do you just get the hell on with it? do you even notice
if what I write here bears any similarity whatsoever to what's
actually in the Mailbag that week?
Answers on the back of a postcard to the usual
Clan Nine From Outer Space, overdosing on the Lithium, capturing
the winning team, and shutting the f*ck up...
Weapon (im)balance, mod author motivation, another bottle
of Lithium, CTF llamas, transvestites, a short sharp Shut
The F*ck up, and goat blowers...
Beta testing, weird mod ideas, Lithium servers from hell,
cable modems (again), crack pipes, and another dose of spam.
Enter at own risk - Mailbag may damage your health.
Feedback from last seek's Patchwork Quake editorial, plus
Catch The Chicken, cable modems, ADSL, spam, abusive readers,
spam, eggs, spam, beans, sausage, spam and spam...
Before Gestalt left for a weekend in Yorkshire, he left this
important message for you!
Quake and Quake II square up for a low dirty fight, cable
modems and ADSL, patching the patch, Quake Arena (again),
some guy who thinks Quake is just a game (hah!), whining about
whiners, a Paul Steed impersonator and Fargo gets down to
