French computer magazine: Joystick — Weapons Factory, Chaos, Action, and more Quake 2 mods

"Weapons Factory est un Mod (modification totale ou partie des regles, des modeles physiques, des graphismes et des armes de Quake) pour le type de jeu connu sous le nom de Capture The Flag. Le mode capture du drapeau est l'un des seuls refuges des joueurs de Quake qui refusent le bourrinage systematique du bon vieux deathmatch. Weapons Factory conserve tous ces avantages en permettant meme un jeu encore plus fin."

"Surtout que John Carmack, le genial designer-programmeur d'id Software, a annonce que le coeur multijoueur de Quake accepterait sans encombres des parties a 200 joueurs simultanement.

"I already mentioned some of my comments on the main page. Here are my final comments. In my opinion, this was not only the best Quakecon ever, but the best LAN party ever. As smoothly as everything ran, you'd think everybody running it were robots that planned for years in advance. Some people this took away from the soul of past Quakecons but I'll take this over soul anyday. I think the soul of Quakecon is getting together with friends you may see all the time and ones that you don't get to see often or just met for the first time and having fun."

"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!'"
