An interview with Fatal1ty
After posting the news about the The evil unleashed
I got an email from Lankamp, lead programmer of the team giving me more information about the project:
The Evil Unleashed is not a Quake 2 Total Conversion. It's an entire new game. The engine has Quake 2 as a base, but has expanded far above that. It has even far better quality than Quake III: Arena.
Our website has moved to http://teu.quakepit.com, so if you could change that, I would appreciate that. BTW, you can read an interview with our team on www.3dnewz.com where we set out some exiciting new details on the game's engine.
The engine will be more tweaked the couple of weeks, and we are hoping to get near 65% of Doom III quality.

What is Elemental fusion?
Yaaa, I always love new models! With Unreal 2003 out, there is a lot of models for this game but I am impress that there is even new models for Quake 3 that can match the ones from Unreal. Move along Unreal lover, this is a Quake page and yes my opinion is biased! Alright check out Binky
for Quake 3 (and yes, even Unreal 2003). Next one is so fun, check out Boneyard
a nice Zombie cowboy with a cartonn look. Beautifull work! All models @ Polycount

CPMA 99x9b is out!
I always love to give you some bits of my life sometimes. So for a follow up about my computer, I have resintalled windows 3 times to find the problems. Yeah, it's working! Alright enough with that stuff. I always like to present you a new mod. And this one believe me falls in the weird type. Elemental fusion
propose team play on a new flavor (of the month?). One team versus the other one. And the two teams being characters from Dragon Ball Z versus Squaresoft's characters. Yep that's the deal! And as the mod progress they should release some new kind of gametype like: Hold The Copyright, Duel, Story and of course, more.

Only mortal version 2.0b4
I'm always trying to find something original for you, readers, to enjoy. Well today is my lucky day! I found this on /.
, Doom (the original, of course) on a cell phone! Yes now you can frag while you are away from your computer. The game is intended for the Nokia 7650 model only. It's free but the game is the shareware with only the first episode. If someone has a try on it, please post your comments, I would like to have some feedback on it! Check out the webpage of Wildpalm
for the game!

The World cyber game has ended!
As many of you probably already know, we learned this week end that a Doom 3 alpha (the version presented @ the E3) was leaked on the net. Of course it's warez, nothing official. Anyway this is an alpha and of course IDsoftware got the latest version but this give us a bunch of new pictures
to enjoy! Official words from mister Carmak on /.
"No, this was not leaked on purpose.
Yes, we are upset about it, and it will have some impact on how we deal with some companies in the future, but nothing drastic is going to change in terms of what support is going to be available.
Making any judgements from a snapshot intended for a non-interactive demo is ill advised."
That's a good advice! I can wait a few month for a good
product, I don't mind!
