I really wish they'd redo the Quake 1 in more modern graphics. Hell, even if it's a straight copy of the original. I know it's nostalgia driving my request but I never had more fun than Quakeworld and the original Team Fortress that came along later with it.

Agreed mate. Quake World and TF are still the top of the my most played games list... along with Ultima Online and Asheron's Call Darktide.

It's sad to see how dumbed down and generic gaming has become over the years.

If there was ever a game even more overrated and overhyped than COD... GOW would be it.

Run to cover, shoot, run to cover, shoot, run to cover, shoot.

Fun, exciting gameplay right there.

If only it had co-op...

A new secret of mana would be amazing.

Bought one a while back and got a refund, and bought a dell 27" 144hz g-sync instead which was miles better.

Next upgrade won't be until OLED monitors become more mainstream, cause every other monitor looks like sh*t in comparison to my OLED TV... (just a shame about the refresh rate or i'd be trying to use it for everything).

Shitty news Blue:
I'm dealing with gut issues since March, got a full spectrum of colonoscopy, endoscopy, blood work, ultrasounds and booked for an MRI of my abdomen to check my liver out for having abnormal vein cluster that is almost always harmless but hey, misery loves company. My biggest problem is I'm dizzy quite often since it started and my guts hurt. Pretty much it could be that my stomach flora went bad and I'm getting gastritis related symptoms but i know the feeling of not knowing why you feel like garbage when every test I get shows perfect health (like perfect, straight in the middle of all ranges of blood work and every stupid test)

Do these symptoms only happen after eating certain foods? As you get older your body can become intolerant to certain foods and chemicals.

Most doctors will say you are fine, and eventually just say you have IBS... but in the end there's usually something that your body doesn't like and which you have to find out by keeping a diary and trying super bland diets.

Just a thought.

I think i upgraded my PC 3 times just to try and get better FPS in timerefresh and timedemo demo1... and that was before it went GL!

Eventually buying an orchid righteous voodoo 1 and inviting my mates around to show off my massively improved visuals and water_alpha.

What an amazing game. 20 years later, and it's still the best FPS by far.

And thanks Blue for sticking with us for so long I also found you by looking for quake news.

See you guys at Quakes 30th!

Yay, so the AI will just run around pillaging even more sh*t now.

How fun!


If you leave your territory undefended, then yeah, it is as it should be... This looks like a fantastic change to me!

Cause having to defend your improved tiled in Civ 4 was such an enjoyable experience... planes coming in from all directions blowing up farms.

So now the AI will walk around endlessly trying to pillage improvements, buildings, wonders etc and never get around to attacking cities.

Micromanaging armies to defend even more hexes = fun gameplay in the making & not a pointless & frustrating exercise at all.

They simply should add the option to disable pillaging of improvements / non cities.

Never heard of it, price is right though, DLing now.

I like co-op stuff that has real content, let's see if it's shite!

Depends on your definition of real content.

If doing the same maps over, and over, and over, and over against mindless AI = content to you, then you should be quite pleased!

Now, don't get me wrong, i enjoyed this as well as the first one, but i don't see much replayability in the games design.

blizzard is the WOW company. don't blame one guy for diablo 3 turning out like WOW instead of diablo

While I agree that corporate culture has a lot to do with influencing how the people employed there think and work, I still feel that the guy in charge or rather the people in charge set the example that the others follow. In any case the responsibility lies with them. Jay Wilson is the main reason why we got Diablo3 KIDS edition, and I will never forgive him for that shit.

So can we expect adult versions of overwatch, wow, and hots now?

Really enjoyed the first one in co-op, the second one felt really dumbed down / generic in comparison but still 'ok'.

Will wait and see.

If only their games were half as good as their movies.

Overwatch is pretty much the most polished MP FPS I've seen in a long while. You and others might not enjoy the gameplay and that's fine of course. But it's a solid, well-made, good game... especially in relation to the other MP FPS stuff out there, at their launches.

Nobody is doubting their polish, but that's about the only thing Blizzard ever brings to the table these days.

Copy what's already out there, dumb it down, polish, add blizzard logo, polish some more, profit.

That was epic!

Really enjoyed first two, so looking forward to this. They better bring back the awesome co-op campaign though.

-edit- More info here: http://www.pcgamesn.com/dawn-of-war-3/dawn-of-war-3-release-date

All sounds quite promising!
