quake

Don't know if anhone played this in their younger days,but they have released it as a web browser game (so even you poor mac users might be able to play) and it is excellent.All you need to do is register,install a small plug in and hey presto one of the finest fps games ever free and in your browser.

I have been on it, I was in Quake Clan when I was younger on BT Wireplay...  

Need some more practice I think!

cool Quake was my favourite PC game for years - especially with the Nine Inch Nails soundtrack

We used to play deathmatch on the network at college. 16 player quakestick frenzies, pineapple lobbing and general arsing around.

I might give it a go, must be at least 10 years since I played Quake. I upgraded to Unreal Tournament and never looked back....
Blarno

Is it deathmatch compatible?

If so, fancy a deathmatch sometime?

You can indeed, have you registered on it yet?
Blarno

Not yet, but I'll do it today!
Blarno

I'm on! Gaming will ensue later on....

I signed up and I'm shit.

I got beaten, just, in the beginner practice thing, but I was playing on the laptop without a decent mouse. This has now been remedied and I'm going to give it another go.


Can you start your own deathmatch games, just for you and your mates? I don't mind playing over tinternet, provided no friendless knobhead frag-monkeys get involved and start wiping the floor with everyone.

A motorforum fragfest would be amusing.

If you see me, jump in and shoot me. Predictably, my name is Blarno.

Is it just me, or is it really, really, really, REALLY slow?

I managed to cook and eat a bowl of rice whilst waiting for a game to load, then my impatience took over and quit.

I think what makes it slow is the software trying to find players of equal 'skill'...

...as the local primary school kids are now back in classes you might do better finding a game when they get home?  

AH, this takes me back!

Just tried it on my desktop and it loads almost instantly. Must be this laptop that's crap.

I'm going online once Phoebe goes to bed and I can get to the desktop. Anyone else going online?

I won't be on till much later tonight (around 9 or 10pm), I will add you to my list if nothing else tonight...

I can't even remember my "name" on the system, it is 'AxManUK' or something like that (maybe with an "_").

...Be gentle, the reflexes aren't what they were!  
Blarno

It's a good laugh. I can see me spending a fair amount of time on there....
