PQ in Review
Spyke recaps last week and all the things you may have missed!
PQ In Review : It's All About The Astronaut
We recieved a splurge-full (can I say that?) of news and other bits last week, and thus this week is kinda short. Oh well. Much thanks to Hellchick for being the only person to send me e-mail regarding last week's adventure that is PQ In Review. Oh, and in addition, you may or may not have noticed that PQ In Review has its own directory on PlanetQuake now, rather than just being an article. This represents a big step, and I hope we can handle it. Do I ramble?
Beginning with the usual weekly stuff, the
Mod of the Week was unveiled, with the honours going to Kt-imPAKt!
As always, we unveiled new Levels of the Week for both Quake 1 and 2.
The freakin' Poll, already was opened courtesy
of the always-annoyed Lowtax. Last week, after I finished this article, but before it was
released, LadyICE, the newest member of PQ, wrote up an interesting article on the Jailbreak
Fiasco, as some lurking troll-type half-orcs are calling it. As a response to LadyICE's
article, Steve K. sent in a thought-provoking editorial on
Jailbreak and Free Lunches. Yeah, I don't get the title either, but still.. After being
chained in the basement for a few days with only an AOL account, Lowtax managed to be funny
again, blessing us (sanctu) with an article on
The Top 10 Failed Ideas for Q3A. This is a big mamma-jamma, so grab yourself a six-pack and
a bag of pork rinds, and enjoy! Regarding that touchy-feely-not-now Q3A grapple issue everyone's
been e-mailing us about (stop it now, please!), Essobie from Rocket
Arena 2: Inside and Out wrote up a fantastic editorial on
To Grapple, Or Not To Grapple. Two amazing new mods debuted their sites on PQ, that I mentioned
last week; Navy Fortress and
The Nehahra Project. Both are quite ambitious and quite spectacular, check them out. And finally, the
Blast Chamber movie was released this week, and it's only 6 meg!
Definitely worth the download.
For the past 2 weeks, Lowtax has been working on a very ambitious project that will highlight some of the most talented and imaginative people in the Quake scene today. The Mod Expo is what it is, and it gives everyone the low-down on some of the greatest mods around today, and will also feature servers running
those mods. It all takes place next week, from the 11th to the 16th. Also,
more banner ads for GameSpy.Com featuring Pikachu. He's so cute! Of course, expect a new Mod of the Week, Levels of the Week, Poll (if Lowtax isn't lazy), and more of that weekly junk you vultures
crave. That's about it, cause we're letting all the talented people around here out of the cage for the weekend.
Question of the Damned
This week we debut yet another tortured soul who will be answering the QotD: Fragmaster! A former content director here at the Planet, Frags now runs PlanetDreamcast as well as
ClassicGaming, and hears voices a lot. This week's question is: "What's something no one knows about PlanetQuake?"
The fact that late at night, I like to come into the office and give PQ a little "special attention".
Birthday cake pisses me off!
Way back when I ran PQ, I used to use various household chemicals to move it along. The side effect of that was that um, (pause) was that I now have to consume gross amounts of plastic grocery bags to stay alive.
PQ is simply a cover for my illegal Pokemon Pr0n ring.
Spyke's Profound Thought
Courtesy of Hellchick: "Black holes are where God divided by zero." How true, how true. Is this fast turning into a forum for astrophysics and existentialism? Are electrons really tiny little gnomes that have a universal conspiracy to
destroy all matter and turn it into anti-matter? Does the grapple really matter in CTF? I don't think it does. Then again, what I think doesn't matter. Would you like to see me answer the QotD? I know I would; no one asks me questions except me, but I guess I'd still be answering my own question. I think everything anyone ever says is rhetorical. Shut up brain, or I'll stab you with a Q-Tip. Send me e-mail or I'll cry.
