This week ArrrCee and dumptruck escape to another universe! The Quake 2 universe that is. Donde takes us on a decades-long journey through the worldwide Quake 2 multiplayer scene. He documents the historical, sometimes hysterical and always human stories starring gamers from around the world. It's late 90's gaming history, one Quake 2 story at a time. Another weird, wonderful and sometimes deeply poignant edition of the QuakeCast.
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 =)
