OZQuake: Fraggin Australian Style…

The community is still strong in Australia. There are still some great servers around the country, including our own (202.139.41.242:27951), that have regular groups of players who hang out and have a frag or two. Instagib seems to be the mod of the moment, a server side mod (no download needed, you just connect and play) with our own server, Alphalink (203.24.205.19:27911), Wireplay (202.12.147.16:27999) and EISA (203.166.224.41:27930) being the pick of the pack. GX is still going strong, something about the skill and discipline of the game keeps people keen, and Alphalink (203.24.205.19:27950) is without doubt the bees knees for game-play. Quake II LIVES!!

QuakeRant: Why I Hate “The Edge” (Q2DM1) by Andrew R. Southwick

QuakeRant: Why I Hate "The Edge" by Andrew R. Southwick Why I Hate "The Edge" (q2dm1) Points of Argument Easy to control -- the RL has only one access point, grenades suck, the chaingun is in a severely weak position, and the grenade-launcher platform commands almost all of the other weapons.
