Q3A on Your Nokia Phone

Remember the times where you had to buy a new Pentium-II or III PC to get Q3A to run well? Now you can play it on a phone. Amazing!


Free FPS like Warsow, Nexuiz & Quake Live

I somehow really miss Quake III Arena… really. No kidding. I don’t need all the fancy graphics that need a graphics card for 500 bucks. What I need is a free game… and a good one. It can have advertising or be OpenSource. I don’t care. I mean in the classic FPS genre we have Nexuiz that is really good, but Quake is just the original… Warsow? I hate Warsow… it looks nice but it seems that I have to be a pro gamer to compete with others there. Here is some footage about these games:

QUAKELIVE – http://www.quakelive.com/

Nexuiz http://alientrap.org/nexuiz/

Warsow http://www.warsow.net/

BTW: Another alternative is to Quake Live is OpenArena. I never tried it but it looks sick 🙂

What I tried out is World of Padman – I liked it but that’s a matter of taste.

Also Alien Arena and Tremulous look good.

QUAKE Wars Ray Traced

Enemy Territory Quake Wars (ETQW) supports reflections but they are kind of un-precise fake reflections derived from the environment (more: http://wiki.splashdamage.com/index.php/Environment_Maps). In my current level design project PKiN (http://www.pazurmapping.com/pkin_gal.htm) I have them on the window textures. I wish I QUAKE Wars Ray Traced would get released as a real mod for ETQW. It just looks awesome! Check out the site about Realtime-Raytracing by Daniel “Elchtest” Pohl, who works for Intel:


This modification never got out of the door and stays an experiment of an Intel employee.

I can THIS a reflection!

I call THIS a reflection! Everything else is fake.
