That's right, PQ in Review is essentially quality control for y'all. We filter out all the stuff you don't need, and give you the news most needed. We slave over a hot keyboard all day, and what thanks do we get? Wait, I'm making no sense here. Enjoy the Review!
The week kicked off like it usually does, with the Levels of the Week! This week we had a single player and a deathmatch level for Quake 1, bringing the old school goodness; we also had a port of Q3DM17 to Quake 2! Tuesday, Lee'Mon busted out with his best editorial ever. A little retooling and "A Whole New World" could be his Master's thesis, all about how the new Doom game should be, taking into account a bazillion things about game design. This is a must read for fans, mod makers, and id Software themselves. The faithfull PQ Poll turned up again, uninvited, to ask you readers questions about Quake and various things surrounding it (like what it tastes like). As always the PQ/GSI crew returned from galavanting to give our commentary on the past week's results. In the last real Dear Mynx for a little while (due to personal issues), Mynx helped a few kids out with problems regarding net girlfriends, pinched nerves while yanking, and acne. What more could you ask for? This week's PQ Mailbag was my last; after 10 months of doing the Mailbag for you all every week, I'm passing it off to Lee'Mon, who will do a fine job of it. The Mailbag this week contains feedback on Lee's editorial, some Leftover Gibs, and the greatest STFU ever. And of course, being the smarty person mailbag, the TechMailbag is back, with Love2Play answering all those technical questions like the smarty woman she is.
In this next week, we'll have a ton of stuff for your perusal, just as many of you get back to school. Monday we'll have an editorial from Hellchick on pro mod teams, the controversial subject it is. We'll have the next epic chapter of Lee'Mon's Generations novel. The mod and model of the week will return! We just may have a Gauntlet. We'll have a very special guest host for Dear Mynx (can we say "boobies"?). Add that to all the regular features and that's almost too much content for one week!
Question of the Damned
Well, this week I was simply bored out of my mind at 1 in the morning, so I decided to ask of my colleagues: "What's your favorite game of all time?"
Doom. I just can't shake that feeling it gave me at 2am, alone in front of my kick ass 486.
Nothing has come close to this day.
Quake 1 - the sounds, the speed, EVERYTHING.
[Presumably off playing his favorite game of all time]
Tough call. I would have to say that Quake 3: Arena + RA3 is my favorite game. I know I'm not being nostalgic, like most people would be, but I have had more fun with Quake 3: Arena and the recent RA3 then I think I've ever had with any other game. Especially when you count QuakeCon 2000, and making mods with Fragbait Studios. I just love it! =)
Commander Keen 4: Goodbye Galaxy! The game is perfect, I tell you. So Mr. Carmack.. how about that port to Color Game Boy?
Remember, if you want to submit a Question of the Damned, just e-mail me! Pretty please? I'll give you money!
Spyke's Profound Thought
I've been playing a lot of Super Nintendo lately, as I'm waiting to install my new hard drive before I slap Baldur's Gate on this thing. And boy, can I not wait to play Baldur's Gate. I've been turned into an RPG fanatic; help me. I'm also (gasp) reading again. Picked up Big Sur by Jack Kerouac (one of my favorite writers), and Neuromancer by William Gibson, which was recommended to me by many people once upon a time. And school starts Tuesday. Good luck to everyone else starting; I'll need it myself!
