are your LAST Quake reviews here at MPQ.
I've tried to tidy things up and cover all the maps I got in but some people
just didn't give me all the info I needed so I binned their emails.
right I'm closing the site. I'm not interested in anybody taking
it over. Closed is closed. You usually get these big ass speeches when
people close up sites and I'm not going to be any different.
Its been enjoyable
running the site for just over a year now but its time for me to move on.
I'm not leaving entirely, I'll be hoping to get Inspection
kick started and going again. Multiplayer
Daikatana is also something I'm looking forward to doing. Theres also
on PnF which I'm going to filling with all sorts of rambling BS. And
the Quake DM LOTW.
for the site closure are rather simple. The first reason is the golden
oldie of I now have a full time job and my spare time is now somewhat limited.
Basically I can't hope to do 3 sites at once, and I feel that out of the
3 this is the weakest. Its had a long run, gone through 3 owners, 3 face
lifts and 9 reviewers (myself included). The site is fairly well maintained
and theres plenty here for people to browse through. I'm not going to bother
sorting out the Quake 2 stuff, I'll leave it as is, a testament to how
fucked up things where on that side.
I'm also sick
of looking at crappy Quake maps. It amazes me the amount I got, given the
games age, you'd think people could make decent maps by now! Oh well. That
said I'll probably be looking at crappy Daikatana maps soon =). Thats a
new game though and I want something new. I also just feel though its time
for a change, I've made a right mess of recent events here and basically
want to go onto something else. The Quake scene is still going strong and
there are loads of quality maps being made. There is even a Quake MOD in
Nehahra Project, which looks brilliant. I hear a certain, younger brother
(Kable), is running the website part of it all. Git!
good maps is extremely good now so reviews of those maps here seems somewhat
odd and un-needed. Also I'm getting a little tired of writing MPQ Quake
reviews, its basically ended up being a formula of choice phrases and I'm
sure it is that interesting for you to read. Also who downloads the bad
maps? From people I talk to they don't bother with anything less that 3/3.5.
Not much point in reviewing them in the first place is there?
Now who to
thank. Well the people who visited the site regularly, you're a pretty
quiet bunch, when I asked for feedback on things I didn't get any but the
stats showed people kept coming. Very odd. Also I'd like to thank the idiots
who ask really daft questions, you people really lighten things up. Some
of the things you ask about really crack me up.
peeps, well this is easy. Skorpion for being such a damn cool bloke, providing
me with a constant supply of Omicron routes for all our favourite maps.
Pingu and Aardappel for helping out when the going was tough and also for
your advice on various stuff. Peej, news hound and asp guru. Whenever I
asked for something I usually got it. Monsto, why you ask? Well I got on
with Monsto and he was extremely helpful with loads of different things.
Also Fat Controller for doing all those Your Reviews which without his
input would be particularly empty section of the site. And Shambler...
can't think why though. Also anyone else that was helpful in good old #terrafusion.
basically it, if you enjoyed the site then that makes it all worth while.
Thank you for visiting! If you feel like shouting at me or whatever, then
me. Also if you're really bored you may want to check out an in-depth
rant on why I'm doing this, then pop over to my
There is some
final site stuff I've done, so scroll down for all that.
thing I've hooked up, Rocketman is doing some your
reviews. Pop over there for full details on that.
