"If you want to dip your toe in the water of online gaming rather than take the plunge right away, you could pay a visit to the Shoot'n'Surf Cafe in London, or a local equivalent. For 3.5 to 5 pounds an hour, you can experience multi-player gaming and get the benefit of expert tuition."
"ALl the players listen to Kam. Fans watch their favorite player. John eyes the Grape Crush... A local player grabs the railgun. Frag's eye view of the BFG. Johnny doesn't play Quake anymore. =("
"Well, here it is. It's hard to believe! At least 85 machines, all running Quake — every square inch of table and floorspace is covered by computers and cables and technology. No, not a square inch is unused. Is there space between those subwoofers and 17 inch monitors? Hell, I've got a laptop. Let's go!"
"M3: Manhattan Memorial (day) Marathon. m3 was a quake LAN party in NYC, May 23-May 26, 1997. m3 was free, and was held at Pseudo Online (home of quakecast). although m3 was byoc, many quakers graciously left their computers on, explicitly allowing those without computers to play quake. m3 was sponsored by the cyberweb cafe, pseudo online, and planetquake."
"Connecting with that community is really what it's all about. QuakeCon is built for it. First, there's the giant tournament … hey, what's a Quake convention without playing a ton of Quake? If you're not beaten to a pulp by the continuous weekend of Quake playing, the stifling Texas heat will probably render you unconscious. If you're lucky, you'll live to make it again next year. If you're unlucky, the giant insects will devour you... Here's to QuakeCon!"
