"Alexis Ohanian is an activist, tech investor, and the co-founder of a little website called Reddit which saw more than 208 Million unique visitors in September of 2015. The Brooklyn based tech mogul is also an advisor at the legendary startup accelerator program Y Combinator. When not working, Ohanian is known for his work on both digital rights - becoming a major voice in the 2012 protests against internet focused Congressional legislation - and human rights, with his volunteer work in Armenia. Fusion sat down with Ohanian to discuss Metallica, Quake, inequality, and the future of the internet."
"My philosophy is simple. Hell the very nature of Quake and Quake II demands simplicity. Most deathmatchers have one thing on their mind. ANYTHING MOVES= MUST DIE. Simple huh? Well things start getting complex in the melee of battle, and even more if you want to win. I don't claim to be a Quake god, I'm just trying to help those struggling to get better. All I can say it begins with a simple solution as practice. Keep playing, you'll get better."
"Pauly Shore joins id. John Carmack announced yesterday its decision to hire the talentless actor to serve as comic relief during the hectic development process of Quake 2. 'So far,' said Carmack, 'Pauly has contributed some pretty good ideas. For instance, since Quake 2 will have absolutely nothing to do with Quake, he suggested changing the name to Pauly: The Game... He even gave us a new idea for a weapon, the weasel gun.' 'Check it, bro!' remarked Shore. 'In Quake, there's, like, Pauly-gons!'"
Cool Tool, his wife, and I were playing S.S. Fragger (the map that used to be named Outer) on Wildcat's server. Holy crap! I swear, it has to be the funnest map I have ever played on! He has all kinds of stuff going on. I thought the funnest part of the whole ordeal was chasing Mr. Tool down with an 8x railgun trying to get my flag back =) Also, there is the possibility of a very popular server running it! I can't wait to see it played somewhere! He got this one done fast too! So our next update will most likely have two maps, Beam Me Up Scotty! and S.S. Fragger. That's the MadMappers at work for ya =)
August 8, 1999... Launch of the Quake Factory! We are two brothers (Stevie and Mr. Soft) who are 3D modelers and texturers. We have only done two Quake II models so far, but intend to produce more.
