Quake II Magazine Archive: Off-Topic — Not My President

"Well, it looks like the Russians finally discovered how to bring down capitalism. The Russians didn't need ICBMs. All they needed was this piece of wisdom from the collected works of Donald Trump: owe the West $5 and the capitalist banking classes own you; owe them $50 billion and you own them."

Now, substances like iron, gunpowder and the steam engine have been discovered to fill the hole that magic once occupied... in short, technology.

Quake II Magazine Archive: Off-Topic ⁠— Nintendo Virtual Boy

"Since the announcement of Nintendo's groundbreaking 3D game machine, the Virtual Boy, the critics have been anything but kind. Truth is, no one really knows what this great little system is all about. Now, we will shed some light on Mr. Gumpei Yokoi's vision of the future. The Virtual Boy creates a sort of inner sanctum for the game player. The sharp red and black color scheme coupled with the intense 3D environment give you a keen sense of immersion. For the first time ever you feel like you're actually IN the game. Not like the slogans have said in the past, but actually IN the environment. It's hard to explain. Try to imagine strapping a tiny room on to your head that's thirty feet long."
