Gaming Sites On the Move
(11/26/2003) If you haven't been updating
your bookmarks just like us the last few months, then get ready. Many of
our QB Affiliates have moved around or disappeared entirely!
QB45.com's sharp new design brings
new focus to it's forum and download list.
The landscape for QB websites is constantly
changing, even when V Planet isn't updating. This is especially true for
our QB affiliates, many of whom have gone through some radical changes
during the last four months! Unfortunately, some of the news involves QB
sites disappearing or retiring. Other popular QB news sites have changed
hands or URLs.
has updated our Affiliate List to reflect all the changes. In the
meantime, here's a list of everything that's happened so far so that you
can update your bookmarks as well:
The QB programming group, which disappeared
while making The Morikun Tale, was a long time affiliate of V Planet.
We'll be happy to restore that affiliatedom if we can find their new website.
The QB game review site whose mission
statement was "to help cover the QB game scene since Vplanet and Gbgames
have been slow for a while" disappeared from the Internet recently. Was
the mission for QB game review site Lovely Pressure completed? The
current whereabouts of the site are unknown.
NemesisQB - Closed
Providing programming and gaming services,
NemesisQB operated for two years and gathered nearly 12,000 hits
before retiring. Josh and Plasma cited that many of the members
of NemesisQB have moved on to other activities, and the remaining members
agreed that there was no "time to do the updates that are needed to have
an active group site."
Formerly called the Programming Sharehouse,
Programmer's Heaven has a new layout and a new location, but the easy navigation
across many different kinds of programming sites is still the same.
After making a stay at a .net and .org
address, QB45.com finally returns to the URL that bears it's namesake.
The original king among QB sites is back with over 1400+ QB-related downloads.
With a new forum and a QB link database, QB45.com is still
one of the top resources for programmers and gamers alike.
Fellow QB game review site QB Colony
inadvertently joined V Planet in taking a hiatus for four months. There's
a better excuse though; Webmaster PJ Haye is currently working on
another website and is currently optimizing both websites so that they
are easier to update. "As soon as it's up, I'll be able to cycle between
both sites at a healthy pace, and since I'll endlessly be bored with one,
and work on another, this just may make it to where both sites do better,"
This is V Planet Links Manager Diamond
Titan's site. Even though it isn't QB related, it's foundation is based
on Diamond Titan's other favorite hobby, soccer management. If you want
to know how it's like to manage your own sports team, Diamond Titan has
many simulations downloadable from the site.
Tales of Utopia
Terry Cavanagh's QB programming
site, most notable for it's isometric QBRPG project, is currently in a
construction phase. If Tales of Utopia comes back online, V Planet will
restore the link.
