PQ in Review
Spyke recaps last week and all the things you may have missed!
PQ In Review: PQMania XI
Woo woo! I think I'll try not to say "this week" that much this, um.. time. Also,
I will stop making references to the number of this PQ in Review in the grande scheme of
things (I number them!). Lots of good stuff, a new PQ staff member, who I'm sure will bully
me into doing more and getting paid less (I get paid?).. Get on the train, as it ain't
stoppin' till Alberqueque (or perhaps Tijuana)!
Wow, we've been stuffed full of content. We were treated to a spectacular, just-released Mod
of the Week in Leper Q2, a mod that just makes
me (and everyone else, for that matter) fall apart. Something that we'll be seeing a lot more of next week
(more on that in the Coming Soon section), the Model of the Week was
Darth Maul, who, if I may interject my opinion, is a helluva lot scarier than R2-D2, but not quite as
frightening as C-3PO.. something about that damned gold droid just gets my goat, and I just want to.. nevermind.
Related to the Model of the Week, brand-spanking new Site Director Hellchick (
click here for an interview with the enigmatic aforementioned Hellchick) did her very own
interview with Wrath and MrRogers, creators
of the Darth Maul model. As always, we have the ever-present Levels of the Week,
for your favorite games (and mine, if you don't count Minesweeper), Quake 1 and Quake 2! Deathmatch and single-player levels
shown, CTF not included (maybe they should be..). As if you thought it couldn't get any worse.. over at Cranky Steve's,
having recently rebounded from death, Steve has been forced to yet again review the worst map ever! This one got a -51, which
was formerly just not possible. And no, Erik didn't make it. Surprised? I am too! For the Nth time in a row (I'm too lazy to
keep count), the Poll was delivered, on time! Answer our prying
questions about pr0n, single-player, music and Pikachu! Considering we haven't had an editorial in a while, Novus whipped up
his Purist's Guide to FPS Multiplayer Design, focusing on
what the hardest of the hardcore and the newbies need. Mynx is still knocked-up sick, thus we have
The Best of Mynx's Embarrasment Spotlights, with embarrassing situations from the vaults, including ones from Paul Steed,
Tom Hall, and Stevie "KillCreek" Case! And, last but not least, I have commandeered the
mailbag! Yes, that's right, freaks, I am your new master, so you can send me stupid e-mail and I will make you famous!
Coming Soon: Big stuff, big stuff. Next week, Q2PMP relaunches, as
Polycount, an all-encompassing modelling site. Thus, the week will be full of model-related fun and games. We'll have
interviews with modellers, model packs every day, and just tons of models, models, models. And, of course, the Mod of
the Week, Levels of the Week, and my wonderful mailbag!
Question of the Damned
A changing of the guard has taken place, as we replace the ever-so-busy Fargo,
Shaithis, and Fragmaster with Hellchick! She's so big (not literally), she takes the space
of three men! This week's question: "If PlanetQuake were an animal, which animal would
If PQ were an animal it would be a brachiosaurus, you know, one of those
vegetable-eating dinosaurs. But it would be cool 'cause it would be big.
Yeah, really BIG. And it would have LASERS on its head. Yeah!! And, like,
Sherman tank treads for FEET!! And it would shoot fire sixty feet in the
air!! And it's eyes would be red and fiery and it would go ROOOWWWRRRRRRR
In my not so humble opinion, PQ would be a wild boar. A big, hairy-assed wild
boar, devouring all of the Quake scene, and its flatulence providing news to the remaining peons.
Bwahahaha! It would be an astronaut-eating wild boar.
Spyke's Profound Thought
Okay children, it's time to get serious here, as you know I never do. Since Tuesday,
many readers have been wondering where Lowtax has been. I have elected to bring the news that
Lowtax has left PlanetQuake, and Hellchick has stepped into his shoes. Hellchick and I send
our best wishes to Lowtax in all future endeavours. We'll miss ya, pal.
