yes, in fact I heard on PC Gamer recently Quake 2 is one of the big games played. I find it crazy thinking people are playing a game that over 10+ years old.
CTF? Action Quake2?

This game would have been perfect with ALIENS franchise!

NS1 and 2 are good. I just wished I had more free time!

I was disappointed to see no James Bond (007) actors showing up. Digital Spy mentioned this before the event. Rats.

I still use one 19" 5:4 LCD monitor at home. A 20" Sharp CRT TV for my fullscreen videos.

Not surprising.

They killed off Vault Network and Voodoo Extreme a little over a year ago, which pissed me off.

Wasn't Blues part of UGO at one time?
Wow, I did not know ve3d.com stopped updating. I haven't been there for ages. Did it stop in 2012? No announcements either? As for BN with UGO, see the earlier replies in this thread.

Those saying you don't care about UGO closing down probably no idea that Blue's News used to be part of UGO. Without UGO providing initial advertising revenue in the early days who knows if Blue's would be the site it is today. At one time UGO was the largest gaming network on the Internet, with dozens of sites like Daily Radar, Blue's, Shack News, GamePen, Dave's Classics, etc. For those of us who lived through the dot com heyday, this is big (and sad) news.
Ditto. How does BN live these days without UGO?

Blue stopped using UGO because their ads could never be trusted, and as such most people used adblock when visiting here, thus denying him any revenue.

Now that he has more control over the ads, most of the regulars have whitelisted blues, so that he gets more revenue.

(If I'm off in this, Blue, please correct me.)


As for the news, that's just really fucking weird. IGN is their "flagship?" Holy shit, those other sites must have been absolutely fucking TERRIBLE then.

Anyway, I don't read any of them (1UP used to be good, but they went downhill pretty rapidly a few years ago), so whatever. Fuck Ziff Davis. They're the fucking prototype of the Pay me for whatever review score you like! shitsacks that invest the "gaming media." I hope IGN follows suit quickly.

Ah thanks.

It's a shame that these sites are closing. Even though - I have to admit - I did not frequent them on a regular basis, I appreciate having a wide variety of gaming websites available. But watching websites like this get shut down by the corporate overlords only make me appreciate how good Bluesnews is; seemingly around since forever, it's still independent and provides quality content on a daily basis.

Blue, tell me you aren't going away anytime soon. There's a dearth of worth-while replacements out there and I don't think I could handle a day without my Bluesnews fix...

You only need to look at Blue Tower to know that Blue's ain't goin' nowhere. The site is flush with cash.
Is the inside filled with blue too?

There was a time when I'd visit Planet Half-Life, Quake, Wolfentein, Doom and Unreal several times a day and often find new stuff each time. But I stopped that years ago and the Gamespy "Network" kinda died to me when they killed all hosted websites.

All those ancient Quake sites lost to the ether. Sucks how it turned out.

Really glad Blue's News is around and not going anywhere.
Ditto for those old Planet Games sites.

I still have GameSpy Arcade v2.0.5 on my old Windows XP Pro. SP3. It still seems to work except script errors on sponsors web page.

I was talking to a friend about old gaming sites like Shacknews, etc. What was the gaming site that came out a little before BluesNews way back in the day, something like RedsNews? I can't for the life of me remember.

Redwood's. He show's his smiling face here occasionally.

Stomped.com.

ugly map, just don't use the logo and there's nothing they can do.

I prefer satire over the real thing anyway, if I were to make a map parody of Burger King I would call it Horse King with posters claiming burgers made with 100% Horse Beef.
I remember ActionQuake 2 (AQ2) had to change logos like Coca Cola. I forgot what they changed it to.
