Oh yeah man. Our leaders bringith to us a upcoming point release to fix some of the cheats ruining our game. You can read up on it in Robert Duffy's .plan. Talking about news, over at Reaction Quake 3 they've been busting their asses cranking on some new levels. And level reviews are the talk over at ..::lvl. Upcoming for all of us is the next beta release of Generations with version 0.99. LordSquart has given up some nice pictures and news about his upcoming level. Oh yeah, if you're going to take your chances at QuakeCon you're in for some excellent goodies. First off, the staff from your beloved PlanetQuake will be there. And you also get to check out the Doom III Theater. But if you're not coming....too bad. You have to wait. Painkeep Arena is close to releasing beta 3.0 to testers. And the Speed Demo Archive has been updated with some sweet demo's and winners for their contest. On our side we've given you some of the greatest gifts of all. We've had the PlanetQuake Mailbag with strange and abnormal hamsters. And of course the ever lovely Jube gives us her all with QuakeScopes of carnage. Ain't she just a dear?
This time around I've got to let everyone know about the soon to be release version 2.2 of Reaction Quake 3. Some of the latest news features some ports of previous maps from the community as well as others. If you check out the shots of the map called Cliff by Karmann, you'll see some of the great game play that this mod features. The Prison map, and Amunra also show you what you're missing. I don't know about you, but I can't wait for version 2.2. Bring it on.
Stump the Chump
Last Week's Question was:
A boat has a rope ladder on the side of it. The rungs are 1 foot apart each. There are 6 rungs. The tide rises three feet. How many rungs are above water?
The Answer Is:
"The same amount as before. The boat floats, thus rising with the tide."
The Winners Were:
Ok from the responses I got, some of you should be ashamed. Mist...that was too easy. You're fired! ;)

IceStorm's Tip o' the Week
Ok, I'm bad. Just plain bad. No, I haven't done anything wrong...not yet. But my lack of attention has disturbed me and caused difficulty in my life recently. I'm one sad individual. For example, earlier this week I was playing some instagib and I was only walking, not strafing. My scores were dismal. But alas, I'm doing better in some Q3 mods then I have done in the past. And with a new point release coming out, I'm sure we'll see some people's scores lower down and they won't be able to use "assistance". My suggestion for everything this week. Play a team game. Play it as a team player. Play with a partner. In team games, never go it alone. It's not deathmatch. Try it, your individual score won't be the highest but your team will most likely win. Frag on.
