Quake Live - Redefining the online gaming

,----[ Quote ]
| Quake Live is great fun. It's a tremendous invention, game 
| quality and graphics notwithstanding. What more, it looks 
| well, it plays well. You get reasonable graphics, lots of 
| fast-paced killing action, for free, inside your browser, on 
| any operating system. It's a dream come true!


NAEV 0.4.0 review

,----[ Quote ]
| NAEV 0.4.0 is out, a game of the space trading and combat 
| simulator genre, inspired by the non-free Escape Velocity. 
| Win32/lin32/lin64/mac binaries are available here.


Shadowgrounds Survivor and demos released

,----[ Quote ]
| LGP announced the release of Shadowgrounds Survivor, a 
| third-person/top-down alien-invasion action game:
|    As promised! Shadowgrounds Survivor is now available. 
|    Weâve had reports that some people have neglected sleep 
|    playing Shadowgrounds for the last two days, and are 
|    close to completion. We ask you please to sleep at least 
|    once before starting Survivor, yes we know the game is 
|    good, but, we donât want anyone dying from too much 
|    Shadowgrounds goodness!



Quake Live Updated to Support Linux and Mac Users

,----[ Quote ]
| During the QuakeCon 2009 press conference, id President Todd Hollenshead
| announced what many non-Windows computer users had been asking about for
| months. Quake Live, id software's browser based shooter, would be adding
| support for Linux and Macintosh operating system users.


Open source alternative to browser-based shooter Quake Live

,----[ Quote ]
| The developers behind open source shooter Open Arena have released an initial
| test version of the browser-based version, Arena Live. Arena Live aims to
| emulate Quake Live, a free to use, professionally produced version of Quake 3
| Arena from id Software that's financed by advertising. While Quake Live
| currently only runs on Windows-based systems (with Mac OS X and Linux support
| reportedly coming soon), Arena Live runs in Mozilla's Firefox web browser on
| Linux platforms and will probably be ported to other operating systems in the
| future.


Quake Live at 1Ghz, 256Mb

,----[ Quote ]
| Thatâs Crux, by the way. I expected laggy performance and skipping graphics.
| But framerates are exceptionally good, although I didnât find a way to show a
| number on screen. Iâm not a huge first-person shooter fan, but itâs fun to
| try out.


Shadowgrounds Survivor from Igios is now GOLD !

,----[ Quote ]
| LGP Announced that Shadowgrounds Survivor from Igios is now GOLD. It has gone
| to replication and will be available in around 2-3 weeks. Survivor will be
| available both as a boxed product everywhere, and as a downloadable and
| rentable game from our download partners.
