Happy Birthday :up:

Fond memories flood back...and I am still playing the game 20 years on :smirk:



and if you didn't know, you can actually load up and play the demo again.
Here's a link for the zip file (47MB). I just downloaded and played :) some.

recently installed ioquake3 and fiddled around a bit for nostalgia's sake. I'm way too rusty to play :toothy:

It saddens me that this title got lost in time. No big retrospective articles on gaming websites, no special events by id Software or Bethesda, nothing really. I've been in the Quake 3 editing community for a very long time and it still pains me to have seen it die. Thank god Quake still lives on with great mods and maps.

I've only found a retrospective in German. For those interested: https://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung ... 97854.html

I forget that guys name but there was this one dude that rocked a 400 ping and was absolutely stellar. Blew my mind. I should re-load this game on my laptop and play some, I miss it. There's never been a shooter like it since. Closest shooter today would be Apex I'd say.

Denz? Or something... I remember who you are talking about... pretty sure he kicked my ass a number of times :olo:

It was me. I always played with 300+ ping. When I got to college and got on the T1 lines, I felt like I had to relearn how to play.

Booger had a high ping too, but he was terrible...

Lol no. He was from the UK, pretty sure you played like ass and were so un-notable I don't recall ever playing you. The only people I remember playing were good, like doomer. I remember playing Ax Baby but just cause he was cool, he wasn't that great.

Might have been Denz. I also owned duhard so bad he'd quit halfway through the match and cry about lag.
