This week ArrrCee and dumptruck escape to another universe! The Quake 2 universe that is. Donde takes us on a decades-long journey through the worldwide Quake 2 multiplayer scene. He documents the historical, sometimes hysterical and always human stories starring gamers from around the world. It's late 90's gaming history, one Quake 2 story at a time. Another weird, wonderful and sometimes deeply poignant edition of the QuakeCast.
Well, let's see... I would have to say it all started back in '72. That was the year I was born. Grew up in sunny San Diego, and ended up spending the first 23 years of my life there. I could describe them, but I would bore you to tears, so we'll just leave it at that. I attended San Diego State University, and worked as graphic designer extraordinaire for Woodstock's pizza, where I continually drew little dragons (the mascot of Woodstock's), until I accidentally graduated from school.
Campus Party was founded in 1997 as a gaming and demoscene event, with Quake tournaments. In 1998, Skuda was crowned the Quake champion of Spain. Skuda was awarded a boxed copy of Quake II signed by John Carmack and all the game's creators at ID Software.
John Romero, para aquellos que todavía no lo conozcan, es el creador de juegos tan sangrientos y famosos como Doom, Doom II, Hexen y Quake. Hasta ahora ha desarrollado su trabajo en la compañía Id Software, pero ha decidido ir por otro lado y ese cambio es algo que nos interesa. Está preparando Daikatana, juego en el que ha querido reflejar un poco más el estilo de Doom y Doom II.
Skuda, es sin duda el "Ronaldo del Quake", no hay defensa ni estrategia que lo pare. Acusado injustamente en su primera época, ha sabido demostrar su honradez y callar a todos los que dudaban de su forma tan perfecta de jugar. Su forma de jugar es mas intuitiva de lo que parece a priori, posee esa curiosa habilidad para los juegos.. "el típico niñato que con cinco duros se pasa toda la tarde en una maquinita".
Oldbean has done it again with more soda lovin' goodness. Being a Pepsi fan myself, I loved his Pepsi Skinpack. Now he has added the rest of the Soda Warriors to compliment the Pepsi skins. They all are great skins, and have a lot of character. I especially like the SoBe Warrior and the villainous Coke Guy.
August 8, 1999... Launch of the Quake Factory! We are two brothers (Stevie and Mr. Soft) who are 3D modelers and texturers. We have only done two Quake II models so far, but intend to produce more.
