QuakeCon Preregistration March 5th

However, they are staggering the registration this year. Long story short, they are not giving people free sign-ups for the BYOC, you either pay for one or win one.  General admission is still free. A bit of a bummer as (last I remember) BYOC has always been free. Be sure to keep an eye on the QuakeCon site, Twitter & Facebook. Click “Read More” to see the full press release and the details.

14 01 14 - 09:38

Vs dead of course! I'll be at MassiveLan in Hamburg, NY this weekend. I forgot the seat I'm in (A-10?). I'll be bringing my copies of Quake, Quake 2 (YEAH!

BOTH EXPANSION!), Natural Selection 2, RAGE, Serious Sam 3: BFE, and Steel Storm: Burning Retribution.


Also, to promote the game Phaeton (formerly Steel Storm 2) I'm giving away 100 Steam serial numbers for Steel Storm: Burning Retribution and 100 Steam serial numbers for Steel Storm A.M.M.O.!


So keep your peepers pealed for me!

Please pardon my "dust"

07 01 14 - 11:20

I've upgraded to Windows 8 so I'm taking time to set everything up again, so I'll be late with news & the late occationatly.  Mostly because I don't have all the programs I used installed so I need to reinstall them.  Please be patient!

Merry Christmas

25 12 13 - 08:41

Got to bed at 1:30 so I could place presents around the living room (no tree this year, working doubles for ~2 weeks straight so had no time), daughter woke up at 5:30 and opened 1/3rd of them.  Paddled her, put her in our bed, put presents back in living room. Nobody woke up again until 8:30.  First time I've slept in since my trip to Niagara Falls for our anniversery.

Merry Christmas!

Go take a gander now! is dediced to broadcasting id game matches, radio and the like.  If you're intersted in being broadcast get ahold of Jehar over at

John Carmack Left id Software, officially

22 11 13 - 19:53

Well, it was theorized he was leaving id months ago, but now it appears true. IGN quotes Tim Willits as saying John's leaving won't effect any current projects as his work was done on all of them. He's been with id since the beginning so all I can say is best wishes!


Thanks to Sikkpin @ Doom3World for posting about this.
