QuakeCon the Year of Doom, at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, Texas, explored by yours truly, representing Quake 2 with Beaver and Dead Beat, July 25 - 28, 2019.
Teksas przywitał nas palącym słońcem i drgającym, suchym, zatykającym ptuca powietrzem. Deszczu nie widziano tam od kilku miesięcy, a liczba ofiar śmiertelnych suszy przekroczyła już setkę, łia szczęście my (RooS i Yarornir) nie przyjecha liśmy tam uprawiać pól, tylko wziąć udział w największym do tej pory kwakowym party: QuakeCon CFL 1998.
Every year, a little town in Texas becomes home to thousands of gamers for four brilliant days of gaming. In these four days, thousands of gamers will flock to the hometown of id Software, most with their own computers in tow, for the country's biggest LAN party: QuakeCon.
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.
Campus Party was founded in 1997 as a gaming and demoscene event, with Quake tournaments. In 1998, Skuda was crowned the Quake champion of Spain. Skuda was awarded a boxed copy of Quake II signed by John Carmack and all the game's creators at ID Software.
It's been a long, strange trip, and it's good to be home. Texas is flat and hot, and way more pre-fab than any other place I've been to, including Florida, which is saying a lot. By now you've probably heard about Denny's being the only restaurant within easy walking distance from the event, to which I can only add: .
