  2. Sorry, no original copy of that and by the way, on the technical side it\’s a brilliant title, but I\’m not so fond of it as a game, I only like the first episode, I prefer Quake 2.

  3. But then that figures… Quake 2 was intentionally made to resemble Doom in more than one way – the cyberpunk setting, the fucked-up monster design (half-machine, half-cybernoid), the weapons (heck, the BFG is included of all things!) and the whole one-marine-against-an-army-of-fiends storyline. But if push comes to shovel, I prefer the first. The art direction and monster design was worse than Quake (IMO), the music was not done by Trent Reznor and sounded inferior – and I didn’t much care for the weapons to be brutally honest. (where was the Nailgun)

    Quake 1 was (for me) one of the PC highlights of all time, especially the modding aspect of it. Quake C introduced me to the world of modding – it wasn’t even an SDK (as they would normally do nowadays), it was a sandbox environment within the Quake engine. I still remember that one of the editors of videogame magazine CVG (big NiGHTS fans at the time) did a Christmas Quake mod, which (just like Christmas NiGHTS) was more or less identical to the original game but instead featured enemies with christmas outfits, and more. There was also a mod which turned every enemy you hit with the axe into an ally. Cool stuff all around.

    I always thought Quake 3: Arena was superior to Unreal Tournament. I have not yet played Quake 4 – it got 8/10 from Edge, which is a great rating (it’s a brutally harsh videogame magazine, I’m actually surprised it scored higher than Doom 3, which got 7/10), but I don’t think it has the impact of the earlier Quakes. Quake has turned into just another me-too FPS series, and it will take a strong sequel by id Software (not Raven) to bring it back to number 1.

  4. You obviously differ from me… I think the monster design of Quake 2 wasn’t all that bad, not brilliant, just plain ok.
    The monster design on the first quake was indeed far superior, but the level design of the latter 3 episodes of that game didn’t impress me in the slightest way, to be more specific, I hate episodes 2 through 4, the first is pretty great though.
    In any way I don’t think Quake 2 resembles that much to Doom, at least not more than Quake 1 did, as the concept of all 3 is more or less the same. 1 warrior up against huge hordes of enemies. On that point Doom is even the strongest as it features the biggest loads of enemies thrown at you at once.
    As for Quake 3 vs. UT. I prefer UT, but as always, one could fight over that for ages… One prefers Q3, the other UT. I prefer UT because I think the weapons are better (just love the flak cannon) and the level design is better (less boring/symetrical maps). I do like the announcer voice of Q3 though 😛 “You have taken the lead”
    And yes, the graphical power of the Quake 3 engine is better than the Unrealtech version of that time, I admit that, but imho it is the other way around for the gameplay.

  5. Hi

    I would like to play tron on an old dos game (Armagetron)
    Can you upload it?

  6. WTF BBQ
    If you’d mean that if I can upload TRON 2.0, than the answer is no. If you mean if I can upload Armagetron, the answer is also no, I don’t have that one and it’s open source anyway, so you can download it on the official site…
