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.
Today we are going inside the Quake movie director's studio to re-visit the films of Leo Lucien-Bay, aka Dr. Nemesis, one of the first prominent black machinima directors. Join us, thru the time traveling power of the Internet Archive, as we revisit the lost Quake movies of Dr. Nemesis.
The first web comic strips reflected the office cubicles and Quake deathmatches of the late 90's. These comic strips moved gaming culture from society's fringe into the mainstream, and made it cool to be a nerd.
ARQuake: The Outdoor Augmented Reality Gaming System by Wayne Piekarski and Bruce Thomas. Big thank you to the Tinmith Augmented Reality Project for maintaining an excellent archive of research, photos and videos, without which this deep dive in ARQuake would not have been possible.

MIB-clan. The Men in Black, one of Germany’s best Quake II clans. Just look at the total frags in the screen shots. Mib beat GoV 169-1 and MIB-Werewolf never died in that match. The photographs shown here are TeddysJam’s photos of the Deathmatch Showdown 3 LAN Party from June 2000. This medium sized LAN was hosted by TeddysJam friend Wildcard. There was great weather and the guys pitched tents for camping, and they all enjoyed beer and steaks without end and at a good price.
Thank you to everybody who contributed to making an amazing QuakeCon! Please let me know in the comments if you see your contribution to QuakeCon in this video and I will give you a shoutout... so many people people have a hand in making our Quake community great, and all deserve credit.
Come and find me in the DondeQ2 teeshirt from Thursday to Sunday QuakeCon and let's make a video of you answering my 3 questions... 1) How long have you been playing Quake? 2) How does playing Quake make you feel? 3) What's the best thing that ever happened to you from playing Quake? I have DondeQ2 postcards (while supplies last!) to thank folks willing to brave the video experience!
