Quake II Magazine Archive: id Software — Doom Series

"Doom-induced Motion Sickness: Many people have been discussing Doom-induced motion sickness on the net since the game came out. There is no real cure for some except to stop playing (obviously out of the question!). Here are some helpful hints: Take breaks. Most people get sick after long periods. Playing on a plane, train, or in a car on a laptop will cause both you and the person sitting next to you to hurl. Get up slowly after playing. Turn your monitor off, sit for 5 minutes after playing and then get up. Change the screen size (using the plus and minus keys) from time to time. Try adjusting your distance from the monitor (usually further away is better). Try an alternate control. Most people find the mouse is the best way to control your speed. Destroy your computer, erase all copies of Doom in your possession and move to a desert island."

"What you are about to read is the most important piece of information you will ever read! HEAT may appear to be an internet gaming network, but THIS IS NOT ABOUT COMPUTER GAMES, THIS IS ABOUT THE SURVIVAL OF THE HUMAN SPECIES! Dr. D. G. Bartha's CYBERDIVERSION THEORY says if we divert humankind's innate violent urges away from reality and into cyberspace NOW, we can stop senseless murder and end war forever! HEAT is the first practical application of this theory! Don't you see?! CyberDiversion is the road to WORLD PEACE, and HEAT is the bus!!"

Quake II Magazine Archive: Off-Topic ⁠— Sin

"Robotron... is the closest classic arcade game to the first-person action game genre. That embodies the spirit of the shooter cos it's all constant action, non-stop action, and it's just damn fun. It's amazing that I remember playing that back when I was a kid and thinking how hard it was, as far as eye-to-hand co-ordination. And nowadays, it's funny, I guess because of the mouse-playing in Quake and Doom and stuff, that kind of configuration just seems totally natural."

"Last year, Duke Nukem defended Earth from an alien invasion and in the process gave us one of the PC's most enjoyable 3D action games. Now he's back, powered by the Quake engine and defending America's cultural capital ⁠— Las Vegas ⁠— from a second swarm of interstellar scumbugs. Hang onto your hats and turn the page for your first-ever look at Duke Nukem Forever."

Quake II Magazine Archive: Off-Topic ⁠— Diablo

"In a quest for vengeance, players assume the role of warrior, rogue or sorcerer and descend into the expansive labyrinth hidden beneath their village. As players venture deeper into the catacombs, they discover weapons, armor, and magical treasures ⁠— all of which develop their character's skills and abilities. With every new weapon or spell, players build a more powerful arsenal for their final attack on Diablo."
