That's absolutely right, we here at the Big Fuzzy love content. We like bringing you the freshest stuff possible, be that features or Levels, Mods, and Models of the Week. And of course, with myself taking over as Content Manager this past week, we had a veritable poopload of that; now I get to review it! Hang on to your hats, and please keep your hands and arms inside the vehicle.
Not to be full of myself, the week kicked off with an interview with me, Spyke! Pappy R took the time to ask me some questions about what I'm doing now at PQ, my gaming background and some various things; it made me feel good. Also on Monday were the Levels of the Week, for Quake, Quake 2, and Quake 3 Arena. These are the best of the best, people, and are definitely required downloads. On Tuesday, we had an awesome featured editorial by Plummer, entitled "You Can Never Go Back", all about the new Doom game from id Software and the how it may not live up to the community's expectations; a very good read indeed. On Tuesday as well, we had a brand new Model of the Week, Snoopy! Yes, now you too can frag as the lovable little beagle from the longest running comic strip ever. You know you want to! Pappy busted out with our Mod of the Week, Classic CTF, which lets you get all old-schooly when you capture them flags in Q3A. The PQ Poll kicked it with five questions this week, including a retro question on mod releases and one on which weapons you'd like to see in the new Doom game. As always, the GSI/PQ crew lent their commentary to the past week's results. This week's Dear Mynx saw our resident advice columnist give advice to a guy whose ex-girlfriend is a slut, and a guy whose butt stinks. Friday saw the release of Freakball Arena, so Pappy decided to get quizzy and do a Freakball Arena interview! Get the inside scoop on the brand-new mod, as well as 13 screenshots so you can decide if you want to download this swank mutha. The PQ Mailbag made its triumphant return this week, with feedback on Plummer's editorial, Generations, and of course the Leftover Gibs that give the 'Bag substance. Love2Play started a series in TechTips this week on building your own gaming rig. Finally, something in TechTips that I know how to do!
Coming up in the next little while, we've got a rebuttal from Lee'Mon on Plummer's editorial of this week, all the regular features including the Levels, Mod, and Model of the week, the PQ Poll & Mailbag, Dear Mynx, and TechTips. We'll have Generations coming at you soon; don't push Lee'Mon, people.. creative genius takes time. Lee'Mon and I will also have something special for you all hopefully this next week. And maybe this time I'll actually win, hint hint.
Question of the Damned
Thinking of a Question of the Damned every week is one of the hardest things I do, as pretty much nobody sends them in. Thus, this week, I ask of the PQ staff and special guest Hellchick: "If you had to come up with a QotD, what would it be?"
If you had to marry a Quake 3: Arena character, which character would it be?
Mods nonwithstanding, what's your favorite: Multiplayer, or "classic" Single Player?
If I had to come up with a QotD, it would be, "Are the id staff boxers or briefs kinda guys?"
"How come Pappy gets to skip this part just because he got married yesterday?"
Remember, if you want to submit a Question of the Damned, just e-mail me! Pretty please?
Spyke's Profound Thought
Well, all that QotD whining aside, I'm having a pretty fun time, gaming wise. I've been playing Chrono Trigger lately, and it is bloody helluva fun. I've never been an RPG man, and this is totally changing my views. I bought Baldur's Gate a couple weeks ago, but have yet to install it. I can't wait now. I'm also looking forward to getting a couple older games once I get my new computer in about a month. I'm getting Nocturne and MDK2 for sure.. any suggestions? E-mail me. Have a wh00pty week!
