PQ In Review: 8 Ball, corner pocket.
Varoom vroom goeth the latest from Quake Rally SDK. Which is a slight speed rush as this also goes in line with Chemical Burn over at Baneforge and some really tight pic's of Slash. But what really cooked my goose this week was the release of the Single Player and Multiplayer version of Sidrial from Fountainhead Entertainment. You can download this big boy HERE. Its not on the small size so you 56k'ers might think twice. But if you want to make sure its worth the download, then you'll need to check out the preview article from Pappy-R. Smokin'! Oh, and for those of you using Game Spy Arcade there is a new version out. Version 1.08G is out and gives some new optimizations and some bug fixes. Speaking of releases, Bid For Power was put out. You can download the installer or you can download the zip version. Either way, you're set. What really makes me happy is when our resident freako, psycho, crazed fool of a a_madman jumps in with his rendition of the PlanetQuake Mailbag. He's looking for a sidekick, but I'd be careful as most sidekicks are the first to get shot! Don't believe me? Remember John Wayne's sidekick? No? Thats because he was always shot. Choose wisely grasshopper. And speaking of jumping, the PadMod Team has been working fast and furious. With the latest being some really sweet screenshots that are really excellent.
Gib Happy is a mod for Quake III Arena, which introduces several cvars which allow the client/server to increase the gibbing present in the game. It also adds a VERY cool weapon known as the Gib Cannon, which replaces the rocket launcher. The Gib Cannon is client-side, and functionally the same as the rocket launcher, so each client can enable it as they want!!! Gibs produced by corpses can be multiplied or turned off, bodies can be set not to sink into the ground after 5 seconds, or their time before sinking increased. At least check out the Gib Factory site.
Stump the Chump
This Week's Question is: "How many animals of each sex did Moses take with him on the ark?"
Well 2 or the unclean one's. The rest were like 8 or something. I forget.
Moses was not on the Ark. It was Noah.
You too can submit a "Stump the Chump" question, just e-mail me!
IceStorm's Thought o' the Week
Well, this week I spent some time up in the Windy City. Yes, Chicago. Land o' Lincoln. Well while I was there it snowed about 4 inches and the temperatures were down in the 20's. Now, thats not the part that gets me. I've been in snow and I used to live in it as well. I spent 3 years in North Dakota (dont ask me why). So snow and cold aren't new to me. But what really gets me is that while I was in the snow and cold, it was in the low 70's here in Dallas where I live. Talk about timing. My luck and me just don't get along. Anyways, being that it's winter time this calls for everyone to be careful. Have fun but don't get stupid. Do that online where it's safe! Remember, you can catch us on the IRC at our own PlanetQuake IRC channel. Or you might caught us online playing a round or two. I'll be the one bitching about spamming the RL and how it takes no skill to use. haha
