I don't know how many among you have fond childhood memories of fragging your friends in Quake, I know I certainly do. Quake Live is Quake 3 Arena that runs in your browser. Almost any computer can run QL, on almost any connection. Many old maps are still here as are a few new ones. One great plus is that it has Skill Matching and it works fairly well, so you're not getting raped by people who've been playing the game for a decade+.

If you've never played Quake, it's not too late to start now. It's fast paced, so much so that if you're into it even a little bit, you'll be sweating bullets every now and then playing it. This game is seriously sick. Also cheating is minimal for a free game, although punkbuster bugs up sometimes and bans random people.

If you join up don't forget to add me as a friend so I can track you down and kick your arse a time or two. It's still in beta though, so some of the awards and the leader board are not working right and the servers go down every now and then for updates. Official tech support is virtually non-existent. Windows 2000, Linux and Mac are not currently supported, but emulators might work for the latter two. Linux and Mac versions are supposedly in the works though.

What are you waiting for? Go and fight, you cowardly scum.
