"I think we all know what time it is. Yes, its time to have an old school deathmatch Quake2 beat down. No more of that pansy 'let's run patterns on a goliath 4000 brush map and see who has da skillz', its time to bust loose in some way way down to earth arena style smack down bakeries. Yes, its time for the Blast-Packaramathon. 10 tightly packed, quickly learned, storage places of mass carnage. 10 frags a minute and no place to hide."
Pro gaming: Where the really great players are, by Matt Richtel — New York Times, Thursday, November 26, 1998
"Kurt Shimada is shaking with joy, disbelief and a twinge of guilt. Moments ago, in the preliminary round of the computer game championships, he didn't just beat but demolished Dennis Fong, who happens to be the Michael Jordan of computer games."
The QuakeCon99 Photos and Adventures of Wilykit — by Benjamin Black
"I journeyed down to Texas this year to hang out, drink beer, party, and generally have a good time. As I expected, it was the highlight of my summer. I brought my digital camera with me, and let me just say, the camera rocks. Sony Digital Mavica MVC-FD8x series. This is the most pictures I've taken with it since the women's world cup, and it didn't crash or fuck up or fail me once. Anyway, as for the event itself, all I can say is that I will be there next year, even if it means I miss a test."
Redwood’s Photos of QuakeCon ’96 and ’97
Well, #quakecon seemed to be a success. Several people were impressed with the turnout including the id boys. I will have #quakecon pics in a few days and I'll have room to post them since I now have more web page space. Like a little good web page maintainer I took a fair amount of notes. I attended Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday afternoon.
