Once again, my beta text seems to be more interesting than the dribble I spew out in this paragraph every week: "blah blah hellchick at id blah i'm tired". Judging from my regular sentence structure, you'd think I was a bot or something. Well let me tell you something mister, you can't make a bot that does this. Auto-aim, yes; rocket jump, yes; talk smack, yes; write like me, no. But I'm sure Carmack's working on it. Then I'll be out of a job.
The big news from the Big Fuzzy this week is that our fearless leader Hellchick has been down in Mesquite visiting id Software for the past few days! Whoot! We'll be seeing results from that expedition very soon, I would expect. Other than that, here's all the stuff that's happened this week at PQ. Schnapple busted out with an editorial that got a poopload of feedback for the Mailbag this week, in "The Games Kids Play", a rebuttal to a 20/20 segment on just that. The hardcore side was again revisited, as Pappy regailed us with the tale of the CPL qualifiers in Toronto in his latest installment of the ongoing epic that is "From the Hardcore Side". Hellchick took the plunge and interviewed the makers of the last great Quake 2 mod, TD2K! Read as they talk about gettin' greasy and makin' mods. The PQ Poll made yet another consecutive appearance, asking questions regarding Q3Fortress, l33tn355, and id action figures; there's also the GSI/PQ crew's answers to last week's questions! Mynx popped out the latest Dear Mynx, giving advice on winkie size, shaving the delicate areas, and continuing with the Name That Game Geek series! Lee'Mon and myself painstakingly slaved over a hot stove, arguing about ported mods vs. new mods for the latest Gauntlet, wherein I'm getting my butt whooped in the Instapoll. Yours Truly delivered the PQ Mailbag, taking back the reins from the evil Hellchick, who did such a terrible, terrible job with it last week. Read all the feedback on Schnapple's editorial, watch as I answer questions, and laugh at fools! The latest TechTips is one that even a technical deity like myself found informative, as Love2Play gives you insight on building a dedicated server, cheap! Hrm, time to get me a switchbox! No site launches this week, because I'm too lazy to keep track of them, so you'll get a double dose next week!
Coming extremely soon, Hellchick gets back from id Software, and will treat us to the many delights she has experienced whilst being there, including perhaps an interview with The Man himself. We'll be having a new "From the Hardcore Side" from news pimp extraordinare Pappy R, as well as a new editorial from writing monkey Lee'Mon. A preview of the Elite Squad Arena mod is also coming up. Add all that snazz to the usual features like Dear Mynx, the Mailbag, TechTips, and the Poll, and you've got yourself one action packed week here at the Big Fuzzy!
Question of the Damned
Notably absent from the pit of the Damned this week is Hellchick, whose absence has been previously explained. So to our remaining tortured souls, I ask the question: "What should we do to Hellchick because she got to go to id, and not us?"
Gauntlet to the head so she forgets all the cool stuff she saw. After a complete debriefing of course.
Simple... steal her E3 tickets.
I vote for the silent treatment. We'll just not talk to her at all until she begins to weep, and apologize profusely. But that won't do it, no! She'll have to beg for forgiveness, which will only be granted when we are allowed to give her a 3 on 1 beatdown in CTF.
Remember, if you want to submit a Question of the Damned, just e-mail me!
Spyke's Profound Thought
Words cannot express how envious we are of Hellchick right now. I mean, she got to chill with the id guys, and interview John Carmack. Steam is coming out of my ears right now. Anyways, I've decided to enter the construction business. Bot construction! I'm going to be up to my neck in bots this time next week, in hopes of creating the most human-like bot ever. I'll probably be spending most of my time working on smack talk; I might recruit Jeff K to help me with that, who knows. Perhaps I might construct some real-life robots. Yaay!
