    PQ | Features | Mailbag

There's nothing we here at PQ love more than getting reader feedback on everything we do here. Well, okay, that's not quite true -- we love making fun of reader feedback even more. And that's why we have the PQ Mailbag! Read what your fellow gamers think of the hard-hitting editorials, the probing interviews, and the illegal pictures we post regularly in the PQ mailbag!

    Does it really matter how we pronounce gib? Do I really care if you think those small chunks of meat are named after a member of the Bee Gees, and not giblets like everyone else (including John Carmack) believes? Can't we all just agree to disagree?

    Hell no!

  • November 28, 1998

  • October 24, 1998
    Mailbag v3.22 was released today, fixing some video problems with previous releases and including a new Shut The FAQ Up. Please note this is just an alpha patch and probably still has some bugs in it, not to mention funky drunken monkeys and rotting banana skins...

  • September 19, 1998
    You all cheated on last week's homework, so as punishment you have to read through this week's mailbag in it's entirety. Pay close attention - I'll be asking questions later.

  • September 12, 1998
    Gestalt returns from ECTS with a bog of goodies and a hangover to end the world, only to find that his funky drunken monkeys have been taken hostage.

  • August 15, 1998
    Does anyone actually read this description? Do you ever read it and think "oh, cool, I must read Mailbag this week"? Or do you just get the hell on with it? do you even notice if what I write here bears any similarity whatsoever to what's actually in the Mailbag that week?

    Answers on the back of a postcard to the usual address...

  • August 8, 1998
    Clan Nine From Outer Space, overdosing on the Lithium, capturing the winning team, and shutting the f*ck up...

  • August 1, 1998
    Weapon (im)balance, mod author motivation, another bottle of Lithium, CTF llamas, transvestites, a short sharp Shut The F*ck up, and goat blowers...

    Before Gestalt left for a weekend in Yorkshire, he left this important message for you!

  • July 4, 1998
    Quake and Quake II square up for a low dirty fight, cable modems and ADSL, patching the patch, Quake Arena (again), some guy who thinks Quake is just a game (hah!), whining about whiners, a Paul Steed impersonator and Fargo gets down to Vanilla Ice...
