Thats a lot of information. This past week Planetquake has given you the greatest. The likes of QuakeScopes, the Mod of the Week for Quake 2, the Level of the Week, and now this PQ in Review. See, you do have it all! Ahh, but what could you have missed? Well something like RetroQuake is a good example with their update that you shouldn't miss. For some model madness you can go over to Polycount with their eye candy. A new level release by Quint called War of Angels was released, and BadMeat was pushed into beta status. Continuing on with the Quake 2 goodness, BBQBot was released with a newer version for your lone fragging pleasure. Some goodies for Q3A is the Generations mod was released this week. Giving us old school kids a chance to partake of the sweets. The Map Database has continued to increase it's count of levels. Oh yeah, BoboTheSeal will be having a shop at Qcon this year!

IceStorm's Tip o' the Week
OK, first off I have a very bad headache. And of course everyone wants to tell me how to get rid of it. I prefer the "drink beer/pass the hell out" method. Either way, I'll still be ready for QuakeCon. And if you're going to be there, make sure you stop by and say hi to your PlanetQuake QuakeCon buddies like Pappy-R and the rest of us low lifes. We'll be swinging from the tree's and throwing all kinds of good fun your way. Hey, they don't call it 'Quake'Con for nothing! Ok, and I'll say this now. I'm terrible at this game. But I know how to play dirty. hahahahaha
