Quake-related Information

Your nickname (story behind it)?
Before I played Quake, I found a shareware 3D space shooter called
Radix: beyond the void, and played it for a while. I bought the full
version and exchanged many emails with one of the game authors, who was
coming out with a new version of the game. I helpd him fix some bugs,
and he ended up giving me a mention in the special thanks section of
the new version. When i started playing quake I thought of the name
"Lord of Radix" but after a while I decided to just be Radix.

t/g - forward/back
r/y - strafe left/right

Do you like Doom/Quake2/Q3A?
Heck no...
I never played Doom until after Quake so the whole 2D thing was lost
on me. I got q2 as soon as it came out and played it for a while

I do play the occasional half life deathmatch these days though
