29 08 14 - 11:04

I wouldn't normally do this, but in 2011 I held a contest over at PlanetQuake for Christmas. Toxic Games, the developer behind the puzzle game QUBE, gave me a couple Steam keys to give away for the contest.

That game is currently on sale at for $4, so if you like puzzle games pick this one up. I recommend it.

So THANK YOU Toxic Games for supporting the Quake community!

30 06 14 - 11:04

Not game related, but up until the weekend if you went to the main site ( it had a page telling you it works.  But it didn't show anything.  :)  So now there's something at!  It's an easy way to get around the Fuzzylogic Solar System.  It makes more sense when you take a look, but that will be the new hub for sites added to the namesake!

There's Games, EarthQuake (this site), id Tech Forums and 48 Hour Films.  

Ok, shameless plug over.  :)

EarthQuake is Upgrading!

10 04 14 - 10:08

I'm moving to my own webhost.  Yeah!  That means a couple things, the most important is that the site "" will no longer be a domain forward, it will be an actual subdomain of "".  

The other biggest backend feature will be the upgrading of the database of files the site uses to a real database vs flat files.  I'm hoping nothing will be lost in the transition, but I will make sure that the URL won't be changed until the new site works.  So, stay tuned!

13 03 14 - 03:54

Now the press (gaming sites, news, etc.) can signup for QuakeCon. If you want a BYOC you still need to sign up for a seperate BYOC seat.  Each member of your group will need to sign up, so make sure the camera and boom guy sign up too!
