Darren Pattenden: Traditional Illustration, 3D Modeling / Animation, Quake Stuff

16th September ‘98. Minor Threat, the Quake 2 clan I was in finally disbanded last week. A relief really. Im a bit old for that shit. It was getting kinda embarrasing. I can still hold my own in a gibbing session tho’ for an old timer! Look for ‘HitmanDaz’ on the CIX Q2 server:194.153.0.120:27910 Friday nights after the pubs shut or sometimes mid-week. If your across the Atlantic and struggling with nasty ping’s, never fear, I often play at lunchtimes at work on the US Diamond multimedia server (‘cos our web connection goes via California) :206.156.108.230 or the PCGamer US server (I forget the no.) I’ll take you all on! (you’re probably tucked up in bed at that time anyways).

OZQuake: Fraggin Australian Style…

The community is still strong in Australia. There are still some great servers around the country, including our own (202.139.41.242:27951), that have regular groups of players who hang out and have a frag or two. Instagib seems to be the mod of the moment, a server side mod (no download needed, you just connect and play) with our own server, Alphalink (203.24.205.19:27911), Wireplay (202.12.147.16:27999) and EISA (203.166.224.41:27930) being the pick of the pack. GX is still going strong, something about the skill and discipline of the game keeps people keen, and Alphalink (203.24.205.19:27950) is without doubt the bees knees for game-play. Quake II LIVES!!
