Out of the Blue

Well, it took a while to dig up the QUAKE CD yesterday, but I was able to install the game, patch it, and download and install WinQUAKE. I was saddened to realize that I could not recall any console commands off the top of my head, but was eventually able to turn on mouselook and other important functions. The game ran smoothly at 1280x1024, though character animations seemed a little jumpy. It's been a while since I last played the original, and one of the most surprising things was recalling that in spite of all the 3D polygon-based characters and geometry, just how many effects in the game still used sprites.

Oh yes... it certainly does. Let's hope in the future Kraft doesn't make almondbutter.

I've also seen it at Trader Joe's, it's the kind you mix with the oil separated at the top. Never tried it though -I think I'm just afraid it will ruin Peanut Butter!!

There's a Whole Foods I could walk to, and I've heard about the Almond Butter being really good! Maybe I'll try it, because as much as I like Jif it starts to taste like nothing after a while.

Horse Semen Shots Taste 'Like Custard'
omfg, if you say so dude!
Under the headline "Women flock to take horse-semen shots," we learn from The Dominion Post that "apple-infused" horse jizz, or Hoihoi tatea, is "like custard" and is a hot item at a New Zealand restaurant called Green Man Pub. The horse semen, for which the restaurant pays $300 (NZ) for 20 vials, is part of a meal of Asian duck and spring rolls that the restaurant is entering into Monteith's Beer & Wild Food Challenge.
Rotflmao.

DNForever, if you have a Whole Foods try the fresh ground Almond Butter (you grind it) and Fresh baked bread from their bakery. Amazing and must be toasted!

WinQuake? What are you Blue, a noob?

Try Qrack. Or maybe Dark Places, that shit makes the game look amazing.

Can't even enable mouselook. Jesus, is making an autoexec do fucking hard?


I think this is the second time in about a week where you've slammed Blue. If you're not happy, and don't appreciate the work he does here, you're more than welcome to move along...you won't be missed.





Just his typical nerd rage it seems. He slams everyone about everything.

I could have sworn they had added a menu option to enable mouselook...

Don't recall having to fiddle with console commands last time I loaded it up.

Think the last time I installed Quake from Steam, it included the glquake files, but it wasn't the most recent version...

I'll have to try it again tonight.

Blue, fyi if you click on the screens in the Baconing to fit your monitor size, it goes to a screen shot only with no Next or Back. I wasn't sure if this is intended. If so no big deal or if it was a minor issue with the viewing progy.
