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.

About the game

What's up?
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane I am sorry nostalgia or not, those shenmues characters look like shot... This is truly embarrassing (17 minutes ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus locations, and not really a game in development. So much time hiding a game, and this is wath the well known perfections Yu Suzuki shows with a straith face? Fucking kikckstarter strikes again! (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus game, and it just had some dead eyes faces plasted to the mocaped bodies, it was trully bad. And the deserted city streets. This seems like a talented modder modeling of a "2000's type" of shenmue (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @AndreasZ94: too low? this is the 2007 where a fraction of AAA games had a facial mo-cap rig. The main characters are the low bar of what we expect of decent facial expressions and lip-sync in this (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus dreamcast faces are like 2 or 3 generations ahead. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @AndreasZ94: it looks like they took a dreamcast game, made all the assets look pretty. And that's it...i'm ok with this. Lol. (7 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 Im not expecting top of the line stuff because the budget is very low by AAA standards but they need to do better when it comes to facial expressions (7 Hours ago)
