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. I get a lot of emails from my readers and almost everyone of them offers a little praise, appreciation and encouragement. And, as if that wasn't enough, every once in a while someone in the industry sends me one of those emails. And so it was last week when Paul Jaquays, designer at id Software decided to drop me a note.
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."
PlanetQuake's weekly advice column, "Dear Mynx," stripped away the hardware to take a peek at the personal lives of the people behind the game. Think of it as "Dear Abby" meets "Jenny Jones" meets "Quake II."
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.
