Ray, you and I are in agreement on Quake (though I prefer Q3A over UT) that it was the very best of the series.

Anybody that wants to get nostalgic about Quake one should go here: http://gamershots.net/quake_1_movies.htm

Yes, I'm shamelessly plugging my website, but we were on the topic, were we not?

Yeah, I seem to remember hearing about it, but like a lot of people, didn't hear anything good about it. I'll check it out.

Meanwhile, I'll play Deathmatch Classic, which, if you're not familiar with it, you should check out this video:

As much as I like to see remakes of old games with new engines, if they remade Q1 with the D3 engine, they would definitely have to do something about the speed. No game since Quake 1 has been as feveroshly fast, and that's what made its multiplayer so great. While everyone else was hopping on the Q2 bandwagon for multiplayer, I played Quake 1 CTF straight through till Quake 3, because Q2 was too damn slow.

For the person that said that they didn't like CTF with the hook, might I ask what CTF before Quake 2 did you play that didn't have the hook? Quake 1 had the BEST grappling hook ever. And there's no way it ruined the game, if anything, it added a whole extra strategic element to it.

And those that yearn for Quake 3 CTF with the hook and runes, check out Classic CTF by Threewave.

Speaking of Diablo 2, has anyone else downloaded the new music video on File Planet? I sent Blue a link for it, but here it is: http://www.fileplanet.com/files/120000/127073.shtml

Pretty kickass if you dig Diablo 2.

News Comments > DOOM III Benchmarks
57. Re: Wow May 13, 2003, 01:09 Ronin
 
Currently I'm running an XP2100, 512 MB PC2100, and a Ti4600. This will run Doom 3 at 30+fps at 1280x1024, 32-bit color, and if I want to throw some 4xFSAA in there, bump it down to 1024x768, which is perfectly acceptable. Now these are just my predictions, based on what other cards have scored, because no one has been kind enough to test this, the best GF card before the F/X.

95. Re: Maturity... Apr 20, 2003, 16:19 Ronin
 
But let's face it, most (if not all ) 10 year olds SHOULD be restricted in what media they see.

I agree, but it really shouldn't be an age issue, it should be a mental maturity issue. Sure, most 10 year olds, like probably 99% of them, are not mature enough. We can all hope that parents are smart and mature enough themselves to be able to notice. Not that it's likely going to happen, which is why the law is good. Make the cutoff 17 or 18. And when the parents see that the maturity of their child has reached the appropriate point, regardless of the age, then they can consider it. But that's likely just an unreachable Uptopia.

I personally had the maturity of a 20 year-old when I was 16, and was frequently about 4 years ahead in my maturity, and my parents realized that. And to all the anti-religion folks out there, My maturity was do largely in part to my Christian upbringing that instilled a lot of damn good morals and values.

...Scuse me whilst I slip into my asbestos suit.

92. Maturity... Apr 20, 2003, 13:09 Ronin
 
I played violent games since I was 12, blah blah blah, turned out quite alright blah blah blah, parents taught me right from wrong.

Now that that's out of the way.

I have a solution for determining whether or not a child is mature enough to play violent games. I can't take full credit for this, or even partial, I'm blatantly stealing it from a friend who came up with it. Here goes: When a child is mentally and emotionally able to complete an entire game of chess without a "this sucks" "not fair" etc., that child is mature enough.

I can't stand Winamp 3, as it takes FOREVER to load. 2 I love...

Same here. Gave 3 a try, and it sucks in more ways than one. Quickly went back to 2.8.

I have just two words for this guy's site: Comedy Goldmine. This may be the craziest man on the internet, not the sickest, just the craziest.

Uh...he, uh...he has his bank account posted...so people can wire him donations....

For those curious, WinME's message is:
"You greedy bastard, everyone hates you. You were thrown into this world unprepared. Nobody wants to admit they even talked to you."

Ouch, that's cold for anyone that gets it.

News Comments > Gone Gold: NFS Hot Pursuit 2
32. Must have replays... Oct 19, 2002, 02:09 Ronin
 
...Or I'm out of a job. I run a site with NFS replays being the chief content. Insane, amazing, impossible things happening in NFS4 and 5. I even made a music video out of them. OK, shameless plug, but here's my site in it's current shape (nothing but pics until I get a real host): http://members.cox.net/ronin165.

I personally will be very disappointed if there's no replay function, and so will a lot of my frequent visitors/fans.

I try not to feed trolls, but although NFS has never had the best physics (hardcore racers will even say that Porsche wasn't real enough), what's your beef with it? Great gameplay, great cars, shit, you get to run from the cops and not go to prison. Just imagine that they just found your piracy collection, and you're on the run.
