Gaming news. “News” in the sense of my own discovery. Quake Live, Combat Arms, Eve online.

Quake Live is based on Quake III Arena. Quake 3 was released in 1999, which i played a demo. Quake Live just brings it into the web browser, and free. When you play, you'll see what 3D gaming tech is like in 1999.

I remember, back in 1999, it is a great fantastic 3D graphics advancement, with lots brouhaha. Playing now, the graphics feels so extremely lousy.
