God I absolutely love Id. More games like this keeps PC gaming from dying. Requiring the most up to date crap is BS. Fucking vid card companies should not have as much power as they do in developer decision making.

Its nothing to do with Quake. If anything its better. Seriously Quake3 got boring after a bit and 4 isnt even worth the effort of installing. This one is heads and shoulders above it. Its definately going to be quite popular.

If they ever release the damn game! I waited all summer for id to release Quake Wars and now they're going to release it(unless it gets pushed back again) a week after Halo 3. Bad move, but Quake Wars still looks awesome and I will play it some day...

BTW, I really enjoyed Quake 4 and thought it was one of the beter FPS of 2005.

Don't really care. I won't buy a "T" rated shooter and Unreal Tournament will suffice for this type of game.

So you're not interested if its rated T? So if Half life 2, Prey, Counterstrike, battlefield, whatever other fps you might consider good, had zero blood and was rated a T then you wouldnt look at it?

Also Quake wars wont get affected by halos release. Majority of Quakes playerbase are on the PC. They couldnt give a crap about the substandard gameplay that halo brings. Leave that game for the 15 year olds or the ones easily influenced by market hype. Shit game. And quake 4 was shit. Just pretty.

Yes, that is what I meant when I said "I won't buy a "T" rated shooter". ;)

The only slight, and very unlikely, exception is if an appropriate amount of blood/gore is modded in.

You mean cartoon / movie / TV gore? Unless you get shot with a .50 cal most explosions of blood are unrealistic and just there to make the Teens by the game.

No (though I'd prefer it over games trying to get a "T" rating).

Yeah, and in Quake Wars you're using 9mm pistols all the time
