I never really realized people played Quake III that much. I remember playing the fuck out of Quake Arena and even Quake II, but I just remember Quake III as something that came out and sort of fizzled. Personally, I disliked all the levels that were up high with the whole "oh no, don't fall off the edge" stuff. I fucking hate those levels in games and it seemed like that was every fucking map in Quake III. It's weird when I hear people reminiscing about Quake -- and they mean Quake III.

Quake III: Arena was "Quake III".

Anyone else getting disturbance in the videos? Been getting it quite a bit lately. Running a MacBook Pro with Lion.

Oh god the fov... i don't think i've ever seen quake3 with less than 120fov for more than 30 seconds.

@Nefhril

Yeah i've been having it too - I find if I use the HTML5 video option then I don't get the same problem though.

Posted by Khann

Oh look a FPS.

Quake III: Arena was "Quake III".

Oops -- I meant Rocket Arena.

Norm is too competitive for his own good.

It's really not like that at all. I don't think any of these open space maps are the ones that are still played. They were fun FFA maps, but that was it, the most played ones are "indoors".

Yeah, using progressive or HTML5, instead of Streaming will fix it.

Problem is you can't fast forward with progressive, and can't use HTML5 if you're not a paid member

@Branthog: I think you mean Quake 1, Rocket Arena is a mod or mode that exists for all the Quake games. Actually Q3 was huge with a lot of tournaments everywhere around the world.. mad skills back then is all I can say, mad skills.

There aren't even that many "space maps" in Quake 3 and competitively (leagues/tournaments) no one ever played any of those to begin with. I guess you just missed the years in which Q3 was big.

Good thing I'm a paying member then :)

If I use HTML5 + High it works but when Using HTML5 + HD I get the same issue. Guess I have to stick with High and not HD.

Quake 3 Arena might actually be THE best game ever created. If someone were to put me on the spot I think this is the first answer that would come to mind.

What the hell is Norm talking about, claiming CompuServe pronounce it with a hard g? It's a soft g according to no lesser a source than Wikipedia.

The creators of the format pronounced GIF with a soft "G", /ˈdʒɪf/, as in "gin". An alternative pronunciation uses a hard "G", /ˈɡɪf/, as in "graphics", reflecting the expanded acronym. Both pronunciations are given as correct by the Oxford English Dictionary and the American Heritage Dictionary.

According to Steve Wilhite, the creator of the GIF format, the original pronunciation deliberately echoes the American peanut butter brand, Jif, and the employees of CompuServe would often say "Choosy developers choose GIF", spoofing this brand's television commercials. This pronunciation was also identified by CompuServe in their documentation of a graphics display program called CompuShow.

While I enjoyed me some Quake III: Arena, I still prefer Unreal Tournament over this.

Also, an Unreal Tournament 2004 TNT would be awesome!

Posted by HowDire

Jeff Hurtsmann and Vinny Caravani. I love this community!

I could watch the guys play this and chat shit aaaallllll day.

Maybe I'll postpone my upgrade then.  Though I can't see this since I don't pay for my GB.

Great TNT. These classics are so good

Posted by Jake_WSPD

This was one hell of a good TNT. I felt much more invested in the action than any other TNT to date. Just fucking awesome!

@Dredlockz Do you have hardware acceleration turned off on your flash player settings?

I've seen the exact same problem on a Dell E4200. I just assumed there was something wrong with the processor. Good to know it's a more universal issue.

Also, AMAZING TNT. hadn't really paid much attention up until now, but even with the terrible feed due to the streaming barely being able to keep pace with the fast action, I was riveted, the two hours just flew by. Thanks for bringin' it back old school. It still holds up. I really hope you guys revisit Q3 in the future.

Quake III is seriously one of my favorite games of all time. Definitely my favorite FPS. I built my computer in college to do nothing but write papers and play Q3. That's all it ever did. (Well, aside from playing copious amounts of porn.)

Posted by bassman2112

This was a fun one to be involved in =) It felt great to win a round of DM as well as being atop a team in TDM (even though we lost hard) haha. Hope another one of these happens someday! GG Giant Bomb

Brad is JUST KILLING IT

Man, the way Brad played in this TNT was just awesome. I'm glad they chose Quake 3

Posted by DeF

so what's next?
Counter Strike?
Unreal Tournament? 
 
:-) Giant Bomb, go make me feel like I'm 15 again, please :D

This game is insane

Posted by chilibean_3

Watching the speed and all this running and gunning makes me want to raise my hands in the air and shout YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH. I kind of miss these kind of shooters.

Posted by chiablo

Unreal Tournament > Quake
 
Just sayin'

Posted by Sander

@Sander: The last Happy Hour of the month is free.

Posted by Nurve

This was a great TNT. Nostalgia overload. Everyone seemed to be really into it as well.

Posted by rynbeed
