It has been a while since I made a post. I'm too lazy to keep my stuff updated and there's not been much for me to write about. Besides, I've been very entertained with my xbox 360 and I have a lot of games now ( you can check in an early post why ) you can see them in MyGamerCard Profile which is also a very nice website.
Anyway, Quake Live came out 2 days ago for MAC and Linux and I have registered as soon as I knew. I registered under the name of TiLeNpWneD and I suck badly, very badly. The Windows version was already around for a while
Overall, there's not much to say, it's just a free and fresh version of the classic Quake. It was not one of my favorite games but just the idea of going to a website and fire up a match of Quake that looks exactly like the original makes me very happy.
The MAC version is still very, very buggy. Sometimes the website doesn't load correctly, other times it doesn't load at all, when you quit a match in full screen the game has the tendency to crash Safari, the mouse sensitivity is wacky and don't even try playing with the Mighty Mouse ( we already knew that anyway ).
The gameplay and experience are exactly the same ( as I said before ) with everyone doing bunny hops and getting stupidly awesome frags and getting fragged as well. It's not good at all for newcomers but that was not the population they were aiming at anyway.
What can I say? It's just Quake but free as in beer.
Just go play it!
OFF THE RECORD: The bunny hop thing that everyone does it's a very old bug that hasn't been corrected ( purposely? ). By jumping and strafing left or right and turning the mouse in the way you want to go will bug OpenGL making you move and jump faster giving you an advantage over the opponent... they will do it as well... so no big advantage...
