"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!"
"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."
"I journeyed down to Texas this year to hang out, drink beer, party, and generally have a good time. As I expected, it was the highlight of my summer. I brought my digital camera with me, and let me just say, the camera rocks. Sony Digital Mavica MVC-FD8x series. This is the most pictures I've taken with it since the women's world cup, and it didn't crash or fuck up or fail me once. Anyway, as for the event itself, all I can say is that I will be there next year, even if it means I miss a test."
"Video of the Quake 2 duel between Toxjq and Fojji in the Quad Damage Finals at QuakeCon 2007. This is the second match of five that took place between the two players. The video is presented in High Definition and runs 15 minutes."
"The bottom line is that we need hard and fast, unalterable rules for games like Quake in order to ensure that the playing field remains level."
