A 3D shooter game in the browser and a revival of the good old quake with more community aspects. Worth a peek

http://www.quakelive.com

No high specs computer required, just a small installation and the rest is server based. Have fun!

Back in middle school I would usually alternate between two games, Diablo 2 and Quake 3 Arena. Q3 rules and always has been the definitive death match based arena game. It's fast as shit and takes a lot of skill to be number 1. It's also the source of the now iconic announcer sayings like First Blood and Killing Spree, Dominating ...etc.

Quakelive is essentially a recreation of the game with improved effects, achievements and better matchmaking. It's literally a single plugin download of a minimal size, and then it runs fullscreen in the browser. It's great, try it out.

Those three sentences mentioned by you are from Unreal Tournament... If you want to remind some from Q3A, thou should write "Impressive", "Humiliation" or "Excellent".

And about QL - its just different and have different basis than old mods for Q3 (cpm, cpma or osp)...

Technically they were released 3 days apart so they both deserve credit for it.

Besides quake was better anyway.  Cool

Next?

Quake Live just went out of beta. You can still play for free. This is the business model:

Also the achievement categorisation (Career Milestones, Experience, Mad Skillz etc) is pretty well done. Could be done similar in XR:

Time to bring this thread up again.

You can play QuakeLive also in offline mode against bots which is quite fun actually. Definitely worth a try for those who live on continents where Quake has not much multiplayer activity.
