asking when OA3 will be done won't get OA3 done.
Progress of OA3 currently occurs behind closed doors alone

I do not provide technical support either.

Hhmmm.. makes me wonder if the "Steed" references in Blood were about him (since his friend Jason Hall was CEO of Monolith) or if they were about the "Steed" in the popular 1960s British spy series The Avengers and its 1970s sequel The New Avengers.

Most likely the same Steed.


In a way, Steed influenced OA also. Angelyss? That's pretty much three Steed characters in one.

It's honestly depressing me that I didn't know who Paul Steed was until I read that article in whole. ;__; His story is pretty inspiring, I would have liked to at least known about him during his lifetime, not just as a fan of Quake and Quake-based games, he sounded very authentic as a person. That quote of his about "being real" deeply resonated with me.

Wow, I never would have guessed, until now, you had a huge source of inspiration for characters like Angelyss; that's like the character I mainly play as too. I really should look into some of Steed's character designs, since I haven't played Quake 1 or 2 outside the shareware versions.
