The Gunslingers’ DeathFest: Perry, Ohio LAN Party 1997

The_DM, creator of CTF+ and QTracker and BMOC at the Gunslingers clan, sends word of a LAN party within driving distance of my house. Wish I wasn't moving into the house this weekend. :P On July 26, 1997 there will be another Perry, Ohio LAN DeathFest. The carnage begins at 11:45AM and runs for 12 hours. Admission is $10, which gets you pizza and drinks.

Panther XL: The First 3D Combat Controller

The Panther XL allows the player to "Free-Look" totally independent of the direction of travel. With this independent control you can run one direction and fire in another without breaking stride. You can also "slide" around corners with your gun always aimed in front of you, ready for anything. John Romero, Co-creator of Quake, famously said, "If you wanna crack skulls with the big boys, get a Panther XL."

PC POWERPLAY 22, February 1998, Australia: Technology that Makes the Magic, Playguide, and Creator’s Paradise

The arrival of Quake 2 signalled the end of just about everything else (other games, a social life, personal hygiene) for at least 6 months, as well as being another great leap forward to Upgrade Time for those with non-meaty PCs. Watching the phenomenon blossom is intriguing, though plotting its course is a no brainer. As expected, the online community swung into action from the outset. The existing 7.8 million or so Quake fan/news sites embraced the second coming with gusto, providing up-to-the-minute news and downloads... Quake 2’s long term value has been assured even only a few weeks after its release. There are enough hacks turned editor out there to sink the proverbial ship and the rate of people having a dabble is increasing every day. How long will Quake 2 last? Well let’s just say that if you played every single level, used every patch, made your own levels, played every TC you would be very old by the time you had finished. You would also die very happy. 

Clan of the Burning Dog LAN Party 1, Last Weekend of July 1999

The CBD Lan Party in Cleveland rocked! We had a ton of fun, and are already scheduling the next one for this coming weekend. We had 12 CBDs there I believe, and we had a blast, playing games, abusing the T1, eating out, and going to strip clubs ;-) We also consumed a fair amount of what we will only call "substance" ;-) So here are a few pix, wish we would have taken more, but we were having so much fun we didn't think of it ;-) I just want to know why there are so many damn pix of 70th guess we wanted to make sure everyone knew how much of a m0m0 he is. ;-)
