Sites in March
(3/20/2000) Pete meets a force stronger
than himself, Abyssware Studios joins the Affiliate team, and AlienQB tells
us what's been locked up in the Dungeon. All that and more on our Affiliate
Wow! You don't update for two weeks and
look what happens to the QB world! A lot of major construction has been
happening in the QB world, including some downsizing and some upsizing.
Here's the latest stories about some of your favorite QB affiliates.
Abyssware Studios has joined our list
of QB affiliates! But what does this site offer that makes it a unique
QB site to go to? Well, actually, Abyssware Studios is a healthy hybrid
of a lot of stuff already available on the Internet. In particular, Abyssware
Studios is just one place shared with the QB discussion forum, where Wrath
of Sona creators Lost socK Software love to hang out. Abyssware
Studios is also setting up to show the news provided by QB news-site QBSource.
But Abyssware also has material all its own, including a QB game called
Blur that is ready and downloadable. All in all, a worthy addition to the
QB Affiliates list. Besides, it's always nice to see a QB site in its growing
This site just keeps getting better and
better! Now AlienQB's QB Dungeon comes with an easy-to-navigate sidebar
and Top 10 Games and Sites list similar in style to Master Creating!
What I do like about AlienQB's site though is his unique take on QB games,
tending to focus on QB arcade games instead of the impact of QBRPGs. While
constantly under construction, AlienQB's site is always improving for the
better. While no new news has been added yet, be sure to check it out just
for the new look of it.
We never seem to find any real news about
Pete's QBasic Site ever since they've kept an eye over James Robert Osborne
(of Hack-Man fame) and his new platformer, Cyber Chick. But part
of that was because Pete was grounded by his mother during the earlier
part of March. While this didn't really slow down Pete's QBasic Site any,
let that be a lesson to all you whipper-snappers to respect your elders!
Remember, when some of them were your age, your elders didn't have QBasic
and had to settle for using calculators and GWBasic. GWBasic.... ack! Just
thinking about it gives me the willies.
When Lost socK Software joined our Affiliate
list earlier this month, we forgot to mention it due to our focus on writing
a review for their massive RPG, The Wrath of Sona. Although these
people have a lot of QB projects, they're probably most noted for their
no-holds barred attitude towards QB newbies and haphazard QB games. These
are the kind of people that are not afraid to tell it like they think it
is, and are most noted for their "No BS" attitude towards QuickBasic.
The QBRPG kings Darkness Ethereal have
been up to a lot of things since we've last seen them! First of all, yet
another new RPG masterpiece is available to the downoading public, Mysterious
Song! This new RPG carries the Darkness Ethereal name and appropriately
should carry a lot of promise. In addition to this big news, Darkdread
has also released a collection of his best QB classics onto the site. Now
you'll be able to download classics like Legend of Lith II and Lianne
in the Dark Crown straight from his site!
The design in Future Software has become
even more graphics-intense, with a dark grey sidebar and a metal, scrapyard-style
background! We've seen qb45.com do a lot of dress-up over the years. Perhaps
the most interesting tidbit though is that Future Software is finally planning
to take down some of the older QB site reviews on their site, particularly
the ones that have broken links attached to them. This is appropriate,
considering that the face of QB is indeed changing again and there are
a lot of new sites coming into the scene by the month.
Speaking of Future Software, we're proud
to announce that Future Software made V Planet! QuickBasic Magazine site
of the week from March 13 to March 20! A big thanks to Jorden for helping
to increase the readership of our mag by bestowing us with this honor.
In return, we gave Future Software an exclusive 468*80 banner showing the
V Planet! logo and some of the best QB games made so far in the form of
a collage. This special collage banner will be available for download here
