PC POWERPLAY 22, February 1998, Australia: Technology that Makes the Magic, Playguide, and Creator’s Paradise
The arrival of Quake 2 signalled the end of just about everything else (other games, a social life, personal hygiene) for at least 6 months, as well as being another great leap forward to Upgrade Time for those with non-meaty PCs. Watching the phenomenon blossom is intriguing, though plotting its course is a no brainer. As expected, the online community swung into action from the outset.
