Quake Live

       id Software, creators of the Doom and Quake series, recently announced their latest game. There are three primary things one must know about Quake Live:

1. It’s a browser based version of Quake III Arena.

2. It’s for PC, Mac and Linux only. No console versions.

3. It’s FREE!!

         I recently signed up for the beta. I must warn thought that the beta will not work YET on Linux, Mac OS X, or Windows 7 Beta. You also need the following browsers in Windows: IE 7 & 8 and Firefox 2 & 3. In the meantime, I have to use another computer that has the appropriate version of Windows as well as the right browsers.

         Though I have already checked out the game, I will not be playing any online matches until Asian servers are up. I do not wish to compete having to deal with very high pings since the nearest server so far is in Australia. So until, there are servers in Asia, especially near my country of the Philippines, offline matches will have to do.

         So if you are a fan of first-person shooter games, or just someone looking for something new or free to play, you’d ought to try this one out. It’s fast, fun and easy. Check them out at the Quake Live website.
