Enter in the arena, become a champion... even I knew that much French. You didn't miss anything.

Also, that eye in the middle of the arena is taken from Kafka, and it's badass.

Listening to Tim Willits talk Quake at Quakecon didn't inspire any confidence in Quake Heroes. Lots of talk about teams and unique "hero" abilities. But they're allowed to chase trends like everyone else, I guess. And OG Quake players won't convert to UT, so Diabotical is the last real hope for a "pure" arena game anyway.

So.. hoping for the best.

I still suscribe for the beta because why not?

It could be great, honestly. The ability/hero stuff is maybe outside of the original arena ideal of perfect balance, but that doesn't necesarrily mean it will be unbalanced I guess. Or bad. It won't be Quake 3 Arena. Diabotical will be closer to that experience. But maybe it will be good anyway.

Well...This "Quake" sequel or variation sure is different...there is just so much is insane if you recall the last game with that name on it.

    toelessfoot @nostradamus: So 60fps makes it impossible? Environment reflections on console run at 30fps, the only blemish on an otherwise impeccable presentation. (5 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX I wonder if they intend to do more limited time modes like Fortnite. There's basically no way for them to keep up with that. (1 Day ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's still just on the test server.. hopefully they adjust that when everyone complains about it. (1 Day ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I thought this 8 player squad mode in PUBG was going to give me a reason to return... but the max party size is still 4? That's just silly. (1 Day ago)
