PyroPimps Ep. 3 – Interview with Blue’s News Stephen “Blue” Heaslip – August 12, 1998

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.

PvP Player Versus Player Cartoonist Scott Kurtz Visits id Software

There are so many benefits to drawing PvP. First and foremost is the realization that I'm very close to accomplishing a dream that started when I was in the fourth grade: To be a professional cartoonist.

Kablooie! Rocket Arena 3 Interviews with Senn and G1zm0

We here at Kablooie! would like to thank crt and the rest of the RA3 Team for letting us be part of the beta test. It has been a real honor and tons of fun! I have to say that everyone involved is very impressed with RA3 and the maps that have been made for it. The main thing I can say about the maps is there is a tremendous variety; wide ranges of visual styles, sizes, and gameplay. I have never been a big fan of 1 on 1 maps, but there are some real gems in RA3. All of the pick-up maps are outstanding and each offers a different kind of gameplay. Rather than post screenshots and talk about each individual map, I've decided to focus on one set of maps and its mapper in these interviews of Senn and g1zm0.

Panther XL: The First 3D Combat Controller

The Panther XL allows the player to "Free-Look" totally independent of the direction of travel. With this independent control you can run one direction and fire in another without breaking stride. You can also "slide" around corners with your gun always aimed in front of you, ready for anything. John Romero, Co-creator of Quake, famously said, "If you wanna crack skulls with the big boys, get a Panther XL."
