I think they look the same? Unless you're talking about the CG stuff.. because duh :P

The game needs optimization badly.

Quake was dark and violent. This one is colorful like a plastic toy, looks stupid and outdated.

This has a similar palette to Quake 3 Arena and is violent. I think your nostalgia glasses are malfunctioning.

Looks a lot like Q3, yeah. Only with moar polygons and shaders. Doesn't quite play exactly the same but that's not really a bad thing.

I think Q3A is a much better game but it's best to let Quake Champions be its own thing.

I mean, i prefer Q3 as well, but Champions isn't terrible. I imagine it will have a hard time, what with all the competition. Though i suppose it's quite unique in the way it handles map control and pickups. Still...

I think it will find more success than other new arena games.

I'm probably not playing much more until they address some of the core issues surrounding projectiles and netcode and optimization. Stuff they've stated is in the pipes but could take weeks or months to implement. It should "feel" better at that point and I've played enough of the content they've given us already to know what's what.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth EA announced today that a Battlefront II story trailer for the single player campaign trailer is coming tomorrow.. nice timing (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX And while there may be a nugget of truth in there, people are DEFINITELY jumping to conclusions. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Melmoth: Yea.. but what's not as obvious to people is that their PR wasn't for the benefit of consumers. It was spinning this for their shareholders. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: that's a pretty obvious thing he says. If visceral were doing great progress at a single player game, EA would probably just ask them to change the direction, not fire them. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And as usual.. our analysis is dreadfully misinformed anyway (taking this back to Visceral): [url] (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm not as pessimistic about where things are headed. I think a lot of stuff is better in regards to this problem vs. a decade ago. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MrWhite: Time for what? People are noticing stuff that impacts game design more than ever. That's not a new problem. Add-on content of any flavor has presented this problem through decades now. (4 Hours ago)
