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 color...damn...it is insane if you recall the last game with that name on it.

About the game


What's up?

    MikeManiac61 @alimokrane: I would say that the Soul series is "challenging" than hard. Like Grift said, difficulty modes can be poorly designed and give unfair advantages to the AI IMO. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A lot of them do.. but sometimes difficulty modes are poorly designed too. But that's nothing new. People have been phoning in hard and easy modes for decades. (2 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Why can't the AAA games have hard modes like those games, that's what's annoying... (2 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @GriftGFX: Nioh and Neir (not yet). They are on my list. I played Dark Souls 1, I played and that's hard for sure. But those games are very few.... we need more! (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Also there are plenty of non-FPS multiplayer games. But maybe if you're looking for a challenge you should be more open to stepping outside your comfort zone. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Have you played Nioh, Dark Souls 3, and Nier Automata? (2 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane etc.... (2 Hours ago)
