Let me join you the whining. i didnt get neither FEAR nor Quake 4 yet

BTW is there any kind of in-game benchmarking utility just like Doom3 ?

RATS!! I'm coming off a move cross country so my gaming capabilities are out of commision at the moment. My rig's wrapped up in a corner with missing monitor/keyboard/mouse... Moving sucks, but I should be up & running sometime next week. Just put in an order for a new kb/mouse. Trying to decide on a LCD monitor.. But I probably wouldn't have bought it anyway until id releases the linux binary, so I guess I'm complaining for nothing...

Yes PCGamer is full of ****.. this game is awesome! Fear is also though. My only beef is the holding gun while climbing ladders, and the low res texture here and there. It does look somewhat similar to Doom3 though, just faster paced

Sometimes Fear is a little hard to play for long periods of time because it scares the **** out of me lol

Quake4 is definetely much faster paced. Is it just me or does quake4 DM seem faster than quake3 DM? I mean in terms of running speed, etc.

BTW:
I am running 1600x1200 4xAA. I tried Ultra Quality but it stutters quite a bit. We need those 512mb cards!

I'm grabbing this one ASAP. Thanks for the pics and info, great job guys. One thing I would like to ask though, how is the multiplayer netcode? Really interested in this for the clan. Maybe get a server going if that side is as good as the single player is.

My FX5900XT can BARELY handle this. Maybe if I upgraded to 1Gig of ram but that doesn't seem worth the investment at the time, since any money should be saved towards a card I guess.... tear....

mmm.. Looks somewhat like Doom3 with team mates.Perhaps the gameplay is much better. Ill buy it sooner or later however ,if i see many cool things from the mod community .i have a question for the quake2 hardcore gamers . How does it compares ? Can we say it completely smokes Quake2? it is better? about the same ? or at least as good as QUake3?


Things like. Extreme Rocket jumps ,Insane fast speed ,Massive battles ,the best rail gun to date and a real BFG gun , tricky jumps ,very efective handgranades ,and traps , great interactivity with the enviroments( you can climb and hide almost anywhere. ) and maybe for others the great camping are just a few examples of the things that made that game somewhat special in the Fps community.. the game rocked out ot the box ,with Mods it was in a new level..

something i noticed many times when i used to play a lot in big LAN parties is that QUake2 was the only game im was aware ,that everyone agreed to play when someone suggested it.. even if its just to for a few rounds at the begining .. People no interested in FPS games at all (RTS/MMORPH only gamers) could have fun too a lot in the game rounds.. With every other game is a diferent story.

Yea well, the graphics, and levels actually look very similar to Doom3. Fear has much better overall graphics IMO.

How is the multiplayer? Can you use vehicles etc. in it? Is there a co-op mode?

So baiscally with a 6800GT and 1GB of ram there is no way to run this in Ultra quality? right?

Also,
You can set AA from within the game, but no AF, is it better to just force this from the driver control panel?

Thanks!

I certainly understand that someoone that does not like Q3A would not like Quake4. However, you are teh wr0ng!!!!111!!1one

Heh. You probably like leaning and hiding behind stuff and driving vehicles over fast gameplay, right? No flame intended, just asking...
