QuakeCon the Year of Doom, at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, Texas, explored by yours truly, representing Quake 2 with Beaver and Dead Beat, July 25 - 28, 2019.
Teksas przywitał nas palącym słońcem i drgającym, suchym, zatykającym ptuca powietrzem. Deszczu nie widziano tam od kilku miesięcy, a liczba ofiar śmiertelnych suszy przekroczyła już setkę, łia szczęście my (RooS i Yarornir) nie przyjecha liśmy tam uprawiać pól, tylko wziąć udział w największym do tej pory kwakowym party: QuakeCon CFL 1998.

Every year, a little town in Texas becomes home to thousands of gamers for four brilliant days of gaming. In these four days, thousands of gamers will flock to the hometown of id Software, most with their own computers in tow, for the country's biggest LAN party: QuakeCon.
As in nearly all aspects of the company, the art department at id Software runs on pure synergy. That is, no real distinct lines of responsibility exist among the three artists because they work together so well as a team. The strength of the three-man art department at id comes from experience, hard work, and talent. Adrian Carmack, Kevin Cloud, and Paul Steed created the art for QUAKE 2 (and the upcoming mission pack), and this article reveals how it all came together.
"It's always the quiet ones. Tim Willits is a nice, bright, clean-cut 20-year-old. He lives in his parents' St. Paul home and cleans his room when Mom tells him to. He's a University of Minnesota senior, with a double major in business and computer science, and an officer in the ROTC. He has a part-time job at the University Relations News Office, where he's so well regarded that he has the honor of wearing the Goldy Gopher costume and serving as the school's representative at nonsports functions."
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.

Another weird, wonderful and sometimes deeply poignant edition of the QuakeCast.
