Blendo Games Interview Giveaway*!

26 09 13 - 20:37

It's not really a GIVEaway, you've got to do some work. I'm interviewing Blendo Games and I need your help! I've got some Blendo Games games to give away. Two copies of Thirty Flights of Loving and Atom Zombie Smasher. So I'm looking for two people who want one copy of each. You can thank Brendon Chung (the man behind Blendo Games) for that.

Ok, here's what I need. I need questions to ask during the interview. Yes, I've got the standard ones, but I want YOU to give me some more. You submit the questions and two lucky people will be chosen by an “expert panel” of judges will decide which questions to use.  And you'll also get a copy of Thirty Flights of Loving and Atom Zombie Smasher. Awesome, no?

Rules?  There's two: keep it clean and have the questions to me by Monday at 11:59pm EST.

So that's it. Get me your questions. E-mail them to, subject “Blendo Games Interview”.

Quaketastic/Shub-Hub Looking for a new home

21 08 13 - 20:07

Willem, the one behind those Quake sites, has decided it's time for him to call it quits. He doesn't have the time any more to deal with the spam and what not. So, if you're a dedicated Quake fan and have the time, contact him and let him know you'd be willing to take it off his hands and give it a good home.

John Carmack done at id?

07 08 13 - 19:10

It seems questionable, but Bethesda confirmed that John spending time with the Oculus VR folks. How much time, not sure, different articles seem to say different things. His twitter account said he's spending more time with Oculus vs id, Eurogamer is reporting he's left id, Bethesda said his job at id is unaffected.

Either way, he's still doing game related work and this could be a great thing. He's been with id since the start and perhaps he's getting ready to move on. Who knows, he's still young!

Thanks to the thread on Doom3World for talking about this.

QuakeCon is Upon Us!

01 08 13 - 18:47

I'm not there and there are dozens of sites (and QuakeCon's site) that are posting pictures, news info, updates, etc. I don't really want to duplicate stuff that, odds are, you've already seen. I DO have some neat stuff to tell you though, in case you missed it.


First off, there's a special Steam sale. 25% off of Bethesda and id's game catalog. Not bad.


Second, I receive this neat PDF file full of stats of QuakeCon. For example, did you know that at QC 2012 there were about 10,000 attendees and 2,800 BYOC'ers? Read the PDF for all the neat info!


If you're at QuakeCon, be sure to enjoy it!

Comments temporarily disabled...

Maybe.  Since I started the site I've gotten ten legit comments and dozens (100+?) spam ones.  I disabled comments on all new news posts.  Until I figure out a way to reduce the spam comments I'm not reactivating them.  Sorry.  :(
