The first 100% QuickBasic
game Review magazine
Renaissance in April
(4/11/2000) Quickbasic.com rises from
the dead, along with Pete, Lianne, and a cult of journalists. Come join
The rebirth of these QB personalities will make you feel warm and fuzzy
This month's Site Report is all about new
beginnings, as a lot of old faces come back after taking a vacation for
one reason or another. Other sites are looking into new site designs, while
some QB sites are bringing back some popular game titles. We have some
of the highlights here.
Dark Elf Productions is back! After many
financial complications, Chuck was able to retain the quickbasic.com
domain. However, because of circumstances quickbasic.com will have be to
reconstructed from the ground up. Currently quickbasic.com comes with a
message board and a short news page. Instead of copying every feature from
the original quickbasic.com design, Chuck is asking people to submit suggestions
for his site design to his e-mail. Please check out the new look and tell
Chuck what you think.
Dark Elf Productions is also home of the
TM archives and Razor Diskmag! subdomains. These two QB mags
were part of the inspiration that made the writers at V Planet! want to
join in the field of QB magazine design. Hopefully, Chuck will get these
two publications back up and soon!
Darkness Ethereal refuses to stop making
great QBRPGs, and we're not going to stop them. The company's latest offering,
Song, is Darkness Ethereal's first major attempt at a Dragon Quest/Dragon
Warrior style RPG. The game is currently being reviewed by V Planet!, and
it looks like this game's going to join the aleady long list of high marks
received by Darkness Ethereal's games.
There is big news though in terms of Darkness
Ethereal, especially if you're a big Lianne in the Dark Crown fan.
According to the Darkness Ethereal website, a new version of Lianne In
the Dark Crown will be their next project. The new version of the game
will feature the showdown between Lianne and Baron Cain once and for all.
Ever since Pete's computer broke last
March, Pete has been showing up periodically to watch over his site.
But it is James Robert Osborne who has been updating Pete's QBasic
Site on Pete's behalf since April. This comes as a strange surprise, because
due to these circumstances it is James who has written the 100th review
for Pete's QBasic Site!
While Pete's QBasic Site reviews demos,
games, and programming tools, the 100th review took place when James Robert
Osborne reviewed Super Stack, the Star-stacking puzzle game by Oren
Bartal. This puzzle game has celebrated so much success that James gave
it a score of 100%, making Super Stack another perfect-rated game in Pete's
QBasic site list. This joins Super Stack with games like Wetspot 2
and James Osborne's very own game Hack-man 3, which was reviewed
by Pete himself.
Super Stack was also reviewed by V Planet!
last month with the release of our new Top Puzzle Games list. In the review
Super Stack earned a 26 out of 35 rating, which was enough to seal Super
Stack in the #2 spot of the Top Puzzle Games list.
Marcade has just re-designed the NeoBasic
site! The new "Neo Marcade" look of the site boasts a light, pale blue
look with an entirely new, psychodelic logo. But the site is currently
undergoing more than just mere physical changes, as a massive re-coding
and reconstructing process is currently underway. The Neo Board however,
which is second only to Future Software in terms of overall activity, is
still very active.
Just in case you missed it on last week's
Affiliate Watch, Neozones Productions has moved again. This time Neozones
Productions has their own server. This is great news for Webmaster Tek,
who has experienced more than his share of delays when his host quickbasic.com
went down. This means that the acclaimed gaming contest The Qlympics
can finally get back into speed.
QB Cult Magazine
Matthew R. Knight's downloadable
QB magazine is getting some major support! QB Affiliate Master Creating
is the latest QB site to host this QB mag, which updates monthly with a
handful of news and game reviews. Master Creating is also helping to design
the magazine's layout. The April issue of the mag is currently out and
is also available at AlienQB's QB Dungeon.
