Both appearing on Youtube, and both corroborated by a retweet from the game's Twitter feed, the first is from an earlier build and the second is from a nearly final version.

I'm not entirely sure if it isn'ta tiny bitslower than the original Quake 3, but that could just be that I'm used to inhumanly ultra-twitchy mouse settings where Quake is concerned. And it could be that my booze-soaked brain is processing everything a bit slower this morning anyway.

What say you? Excited?

Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
