The weekly mailbag

Latest issue: May 2nd, 1999 - Next week's topic: "How many film/books/media references can you spot in Blood or Blood2? Sned 'em in!" Tune in on May 9th to find out.

Welcome to what is PlanetBlood's Mailbag section, as run by Tom "Mugwum" Bramwell. If you have a point to make about recent events in the online Blood community, or you feel that there is something that no one has picked up on that maybe you feel strongly about, or maybe if you just fancy a rant, drop us a line at mailbag@planetblood.com and we'll see if it deserves inclusion. There are (as with so much in life) a few brief rules.

1) The mail you send should not consist of technical queries, you should use Monolith technical support for those issues.
2) Your mail should not be some sort of personal attack unless you feel that it is relevant for everyone to read.
3) Finally, your messages can have anything to do with either Blood or Blood2, maybe even suggestions for Blood3!
4) I am allowed to grammatically alter messages that are incomprehensible in their native form ;-)

BLOOD3 FEATURES! - by adarksun

you've gotta try and bring back that demonic feeling of Blood, the comedy relief was par (at best) but some of those maps were kick ass, especially the large cathedral with the voice talking in the background......first time i went though that board i think i had goosebumps, it was intense....Blood 2 had the potential to blow away Blood, and it did to certain extents, i play it daily (online and stuff) but i couldn't seem to get involved into the story line, got tired of chasing Gideon and stuff, it seemed too furturistic to me, i wanted more ancient temples, and graves yards....(oh wait, you can't do that or i might start killing innocent people, cause violent games warp the mind...*sigh*) but that's my 5 cents worth

p.s. it's not 2 cents cause my opinions are worth more than others!!..hehe j/k

    We'll do that when we make Blood3. Although -- truth be told -- we're not the people who made the game. But don't tell anyone, okay?

BLOOD3 (what's this obsession with caps today? - Mug) - by Thomas Opazo

Hey-

First of all....hyperthetical? I think you ment hypothetical. (lol, I don't mean to be a jerk, sorry, but thought you might want to correct that.) Anyway, for blood 3 I think the most important factor would be the loss of the excessive, annyoing humor. The reimplementation of the gothic, horror feel of the original and music that attests to that feel would be the most important aspects, along with the loss of the black humour, to a certain extent, anyway.

    You were not the only nit-picking bastard to pick up on my insomnia-induced typing error. Damn you all. To hell. I'm not going to correct it. That way, you can all bask in my blatant stupidty. Either that or I can't remember when I wrote it and/or find it in the news updating system. Gah.

HI I WANT A SKIN

    I think you have sadly missed the concept of a competition somewhere along the line.

What I want in Blood 3 - by Glen

Hey.

Blood 3 needs a level where you run aroud taking out ignorant media types that blame computer games for school yard massacres. Then take out a radical christian group that's protesting outside monolith studios, and while they're at it, take out those right to life idiots with a pipe bomb taped to their head.

Perhaps the Cabal has taken over all the hot dog stands in the world, and Caleb has to blast them to shit with his akimbo shotties, screaming "DIE WEENERS!", because he's actually talking to the hotdogs,not the guy who sells them.

And there definately needs to be a porn movie playing on a giant cinema screen just like in Duke 3d.

    With bells on.

Blood 3 - by Thomas McGuire

hmm, what would be nice in Blood 3, hmmmmm Well, maybe it'll actually get finished, or patches even :) Or perhaps even get back to some more uhhh, gothic settings. Well basically the stuff that made Blood a better (more professional) game than Blood 2

    More on this soon.

Blank - by Microsoft Technical Support

We are sorry - we cannot help you with your query #213214133, "My dinner is burning".

    Boredom I guess.

     

    A slightly shorter mailbag this week -- but perhaps I can stir up enough crap to warrant a few more entries next time. Catch ya then, chummies.
