Many of Peachies friends played Doom II, and then Quake. She was
always really interested in the games, but never even thought about
playing herself! Until one day, she loaded up Quake and just
played! From then on she was addicted! After worrying she
wasn't good enough to battle it out on a server, she finally just
made herself connect, and now she plays almost every day!
Peachies hasn't played Quake
since she installed Quake2! She learned how to play, using the
mouse on Quake, but ever since Quake2, there's no turning back to
Quake for her! "I've played both... I like Quake2 much bettah!"
Besides playing Quake2, Peachies created, and is the webmistress,
of the Vicious
Vixens clan site. She's also done alot of "Quake
related" features on other websites. She started off
working on War Council, doing reviews, and interviews with
developers, and since War Council is now a thing of the past, she
does the same over at MPOG
- Multiplayer Online Gaming. She's been lucky enough to
attend E3, in Atlanta, the past few years, and has met lots of great
people! Peachies also enjoys attending the big LAN parties:
QuakeCon, The Frag, and she hopes to one day have her very own
There are a few things Peachies would like to see changed about
internet Quake. "Until I get my cable modem next month, BETTER
connections! LESS lag!" Also, the guys on the net who
always think she's a guy when she plays. "Don't you think
it would be odd for a guy to have the nick "Peachies"???
why on earth would a guy want to pose as a woman?? I mean... I
understand (sorta) the reason they use the female model, but sheesh!!!!
One of these days those guys out there will realize that women can
play too! and play damn good, I might add!"

Zippy started playing Internet Quake2 in February 98. Her
boyfriend, OzNimbus, was playing and she became interested from
watching him. "There was so much going on that it was fun
..and well I hate watching TV so I started playing." Now
OzNimbus has a hard time getting Zippy away from the computer!
Zippy and OzNimbus
Zippy plays only Quake2. Why? Because she never got around
to installing Quake on her hard drive. She figures she'll stay
with Quake2: "why go backwards thru time?"
Stay tuned for the Vicious Vixens' CTF squad Zippy will be
forming soon, and a LMCTF branch forming a bit later. Besides Quake,
Zippy is writing game reviews for MPOG
- Multiplayer Online Gaming. She's also written
some CTF and DM strategy guides for the Vicious
Vixens' Voices. Recently she just got back from the
IMOL WarBirds' Convention in Dallas and played a bit of the WW2
flight sim online. "Wooohoo! too bad you only get so many
bullets in a plane!".
Zippy's favorite chaingun... on a WWII Bomber!
Zippy would like to see lagless internet play, no matter what
game you are playing, as well an end to the name calling and such,
on Quake servers. The end of name calling "is not going to
happen and I won't be able to get cable modems in my area until Jan
'99 so I have to wait patiently." Zippy's future plans
concerning Quake are to keep fragging, get a CTF branch going for
the Vicious Vixens, and to get her clan more widely known.
