"Wipe that saliva from your mouth soldier! Save your spit for licking your wounds. You'll have plenty of 'em after you battle the Strogg in this 3-level, action-packed Demo. Wake up soldier. This isn't just a game. It's Quake II."
"These days from all around me, I hear of 'windows' and a 'mouse', of brand names, some are 'Apple', wish I knew what it's about. I hear they've some connection, with strange things they call computers, which will give you all the answers, but to me they're just confusers. I've seen folk press some buttons, words appear and sometimes numbers, they seem to spring from nowhere — it surely makes me wonder. Sometimes I've asked a question, they just turn to this machine, press a button here, a button there, they find the answer there, it seems. It's really quite amazing, they don't even have to think, they tell me what I want to know, I don't have time to even blink. One day I'll look right through the window, perhaps I'll see before my eyes, this mouse they always talk about, for he must be very wise." —Hilda B. York, of Millers Point, fascinated by what she reads in Icon, was moved to write this poem, 1998
"The other day, I was given the opportunity to interview probably my favorite id Software employee, funny guy, level design hero of mine, and all around cool dude, Tim Willits. Part of the interview was done by phone and part in person at id's offices. Tim shared some insights on the design of the highly anticipated, cosmos ruling Quake 2 and how to be diplomatic. I was shown the examples (very cool) talked about in the interview, so they DO exist in the game already. Hopefully you will learn new things about Quake 2, as I did."
"The International Crime Syndicate is a well financed, organized, offensive criminal mercenary force with suspected ties to the Corsican Mafia. The ICS takes crime to the 'next level' with high-tech, modern weapons and motivated talent. Defending game objectives are SWAT, Special Police or Private Security teams. ICS expands SOF II with contemporary urban settings like Banks, Casinos, Art Galleries, and... download the game and see! I.C.S. was conceived and realized by people who brought some of the great mods of our time: Alliance Games for Quake 3, Navy SEAL/s: Covert Operations for Quake 3, LMCTF for Quake 2, and Loki's Missions Single Player games for Quake 2 and Half-Life. I.C.S. is an extremely high quality add-on with commercial quality content. We hope you enjoy what it has to offer."
"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."
"The mighty Planet Quake is always hungry for the latest and koolest Quake files! Be it the ever classic Quake 1, the Strogg infested Quake 2, the deadly arenas of Quake III or beyond, we want those files. Make them yourself or submit a great work of Quake art you love. Just fill us up with crunchy Quake goodness!"
"Virtual explosions. Leather jackets. Cyber gunfights. Baseball caps. Flashing screens. Buzz cuts. Pumping music. Lip rings. Cell phones. Screen names. Pony-tails. Streaming wires. Tattoos. Baggy jeans. Action figures. Junk food. T-shirts. Intense concentration."
