"I'm not going to explain exactly what QUAKE is, suffice to say that it's a game where you have a character - with a gun - who goes around different levels shooting everything that moves! A bit like DOOM but with better graphics and a lot more. With AET's QUAKE server, you don't play against the computer. You play against other people! Much more fun! A good friend of ours at AET, who are a computer repair service based in Gillingham, Kent, runs a QUAKE II server which runs 24/7. So — if you are feeling a little bit bored why not try it out! The best times with the most people playing Saturday and Sunday afternoons, but people are playing most nights of the week. (The name I play under is 'Tory B'stard' so if you see me (I'll be the one with the lowest score) — say Hi!) So, for those of you who already have QUAKE II and know how to set it up to play in Death Matches with downloads enabled (you will need the downloads enabled as we do NOT normally play the standard levels or with standard characters). The server address is aetnet.co.uk." -Phil
"If you want to dip your toe in the water of online gaming rather than take the plunge right away, you could pay a visit to the Shoot'n'Surf Cafe in London, or a local equivalent. For 3.5 to 5 pounds an hour, you can experience multi-player gaming and get the benefit of expert tuition."
"Everyone says how you use a rail gun properly, and the famous BFG triangle of death tutorials, but no-one ever pays such a hand sized, ball of TNT its dues. . . well, I do!" - The Doover
