Out of the Blue

Today marks the 14th anniversary of the release of the shareware version of QUAKE back in 1996. id's first-person shooter changed the face of computer gaming in many ways, and put this site on the map, and it will always hold a special place in many of our hearts. I'll play a little QUAKE LIVE as the space marine today in honor of the occasion.
