Quake II Magazine Archive: May 1997

"The other newcomer in this pack is the Gremlin, whilst bearing no resemblance to the creatures from the Steven Spielberg film, are an excellent addition... Midway through an intense conflict a message appears: 'Gremlin stole your rocket launcher'. Suddenly you are rudely disarmed to the shotgun, as you see the Gremlin in question hobbling away with a distinctive Quake soldier's gun in it's wiry little arms.

The Gremlin whips about, and you gasp in horror as a hail of rockets blows you and the surrounding monsters into cyber-chunks."

There are huge commercial LAN parties (e.g. Inzzide, e-lan) in Berlin, the real gamers are getting younger (or are we getting older?) And somehow play different games, and the appeal of the games is just not that great anymore. Well and finally: our old location is no longer available. A lot of money for a new room makes it difficult to do without sponsors again and then we're back to the commercial aspect… We sat down again and cut a little video with a few scenes from various NetzFestions."
