Notable Stuff:

  • Best Booth Babe of E3 2000? Why that would be Kornelia Takack, the 22-year old Budapest native who wiped the floor with her opponents in Quake III: Arena. Her end stats? 1,566 frags, 23 deaths, and 2 total match losses.
  • CGW is rather generous with their 1.5 star review of Daikatana, don't ya think?
  • The Chips & Bits, Inc. ad for Diablo II features the original box artwork before it was tweaked, showing the soul-gem-sized hole in the skeletal hero's forehead.
  • Wonder how many people failed to realize Jeff Green's fantasy game Pepsi Presents: Topless Tami's Sex Gun Orgy was a joke and e-mailed him to be a beta tester?
