Well, #quakecon seemed to be a success. Several people were impressed with the turnout including the id boys. I will have #quakecon pics in a few days and I'll have room to post them since I now have more web page space. Like a little good web page maintainer I took a fair amount of notes. I attended Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday afternoon.
Recorded entirely in our home studio, the show is intended to bring gaming news to the audience in a different format than many other shows. We like to blend a lot of humor and sarcasm with the actual events. Blue (of Bluesnews.com) calls us the "Dream On" of radio shows, in reference to HBO's television program, which combined a narrative with movie clips to emphasize the main character's state of mind.
Frag.Com's photo album of the biggest Quake event ever. Photography by Jonathan "ZyFly" Works. Sizing, thumbnails, HTML, and captions by Martin "DemonEater" Cox. Special thanks to the #trinity crew for their input.
Next up was a gentleman whom calls himself "hyPer" and he runs a web site called In The Pit Rocket Arena Strategy dedicated to...you guessed it...Rocket Arena. Mace Royer was live in the studio tonight. GIRLBOMB is still out sick and the "chatbitch" loonyboi sat in her stead.
Paul Steed shared his QuakeCon '99 photos and summarized, "Whoohoo! How 'bout them Booth Babes! I think while they didn't exactly make the show, they didn't hurt it either. They had a great time and were genuinely fascinated by the scope of QuakeCon99. Thanks to that organization Fuh-Reak, Anna Kang and the support of all the diligent volunteers, no one can deny this was by far the best community event in a long time."
This level isn't an architectural wonder. It's not meant to have you "ooh-ing and ahh-ing". It's about having fun. Took a chunk of my weekend to make it. If you don't have a lot of fun playing in it... I'll have to send Eugene over. ;) Walter Costinak aka |2|
In speaking with this major prick of the Strogg and telling him about Earth, you acquire a signal to Earth's television broadcasts. You flick through the channels, but he keeps stopping you at a football game. He was very impressed how one team just marched up and down the field, totally decimating the other team. He comments on how fun the game could be with weapons. They were probably watching the Eagles (I'm from Philly). A deal is made and a date is set, the battle over planet Earth will occurr on a football field. Team Marine vs. Team Strogg.
