"The sound of footsteps, the smell of burning... you'd be a fool to fire a point blank rocket. Oh, you're dead! Quake III Arena has been the most awaited game of the year and doesn't disappoint those looking for the ultimate in deathmatch gaming. Load up, get online, and fight back with your very own BFG — that's Big Fragging guide."
Online gaming was just ridding itself of diapers. A scant few massively multiplayer games existed (Lineage for one, it was released that year). Quake 2 was the game to play, having been released the year before. A childhood friend of mine, (Asmodai by name) invited me to play a new mod for Quake 2. The mod was called Loki's Minions Capture the Flag - #LMCTF , the first Capture the Flag modification for Quake 2, released the day after the Quake 2 source code was released.
