is a difference between being the shooter and the shootee in a driveby
shooting like our Gunshot Wound Award. Here's the score today.
Ped Xing(score 7): All the death of massacre with none of the guilt!
Shadow of Power(Score 8): I need an armour! Bitchy Box! Hey you pussy,
punch my harder! I love this game.
Massacre(score 2):The pain of playing this game is
like the pain of murder -- you know it's wrong, and you want no
part of it. Only crazy people will bother playing this for long!
Pong Worz(Score: 4):Technologically brilliant. Artistically stunning.
|There is a certain quality that
defines QB and QB programs. Perhaps it's a certain way we use the
controls. Perhaps it's the way we present the interfaces to the world.
Perhaps it's mode 13h. Whatever it is, these tangible qualities have
convinced us here at QBXL that they needed to be celebrated in their
own way, and three awards can now be granted by QBXL reviewers.
The first is the "This is QB?!" award, which is granted to programs
which either push the boundries of QBs technological edge in innovative
ways, or are so well designed that only those with intimate knowlege of
the program could guess it was programmed in QB.
The "Most Excellent Award" is granted to programs which are most
excellent. A 10 rating isn't nessessarily enough to get this award, it
must be earned through sheer greatness. A game which hasn't achieved a
score of 10 has a chance of getting this award as well, since greatness
transcends graphics and sound, which sometimes may lack.
Finally, the "Gunshot Wound Award" is awarded to programs which are
worse than a self inflicted gunshot wound. Any program that recieves a
0 from our reviewers automatically is granted this prestigious award,
but higher rated programs may recieve it in special circumstances as
Here are what the scores mean in terms of the grand scheme of things.
0 : Worse
than a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Painful in every respect.
1 : Worse than a gunshot wound inflicted by some
2 : Worse than falling and landing on an AIDS needle. Ouch.
3 : Worse than falling and landing on a poodle. Scary.
4 : Worse than falling and scraping your knee.
5 : Worse than falling and getting a bruise.
6 : Worse than drinking Vanilla Coke.
7 : Worse than having a high paying job.
8 : Worse than winning the lottery.
9 : Worse than a cold beer on a hot day.
10 : Not all that bad, really...
