Mwuhahahaaaa...

With Fargo away for Thanksgiving, and the rest of the PlanetQuake staff exiled from their office while it's fumigated this weekend, I control the horizontal, and the vertical.

Do not attempt to adjust your set. It's another PlanetQuake Mailbag... No, I said DON'T adjust your set .. come back, come back!


Care In The Community

Our recent pair of editorials about the state of the Quake community - "The Community To Come" and "Live Long And Prosper" - are still bringing in mail, this week mostly from eternal optimists rather than doomsayers...


From : Antti Seppänen
Subject : about Honnert's editorial

Moores! [ And the same to you! ]

I don't see our community dividing in any way. We all read our news from Bluesnews or PlanetQuake or same sort of "universal" 3d-gaming news sites. Same thing with editorials and articles. Sites that are growing and prospering are those that serve whole 3d gaming community. For example PlanetQuake (with Hexenworld, PlanetShogo, PlanetUnreal, PlanetBlood etc.), loonygames, Bluesnews...

It was the Quake community but it's turning into more like a 3d gaming community. More members come with each new game. And I don't think that Q3A will be any major collective thing for all in this new community. It will be just one new game among others. Maybe best game in 1999, but still it will be just one among other great games coming out next year (Prey, Duke Nukem, Max Payne, etc...) .

Subject : mercantalism and quake

In the 17th centuary there was a economic idea called mercantalism. [ huh? ]

It suggested that the world's economy was one big cake. And that countries to benefit economically took varying sizes of cake (the UK of course taking a large chunk). However they presumed that the size of the cake never changed so that you could only gain economically from depriving another country of cake.

I.e they reckoned without the colonisation of America (which now eats a lot of pie) [ that explains a lot... ] and the expansion of world trade.

In the same way (or at least in a slightly linked way) Marc Hawke is making a mistake, the growing popularity of the internet and the increased numbers of quakers etc. can easily account for the proliferance of online games :]


From : Phil Chan
Subject : Live long and Prosper

Im sorry, but Mr Honnert saying in Live Long and Prosper "I can't tell you how many times I read reviews of FPS games with the line 'Well, it's a good single player game, but...' " is one of the most hilarious things I've read in a long time.

What FPS's are we talking about here? The only game that I can think of that fits this statement of his is Unreal, and we all know Unreal's single player is shaky at best. Half-Life is the first FPS I've played since Doom that stunned me with its single-player.

What was my point....oh yeah, I pretty much agree with him otherwise, so I'll shut up now.

Where's www.planetfortressofdrradiaki.com? C'mon guys get with it!

Damned good question... Maybe it was a bit close to home for Bastard, what with all the hideous genetic experiments going on at PlanetQuake headquarters. I mean, why do you think they're having to fumigate the office?!?
