John Carmack - QuakeArena not newbie friendly for consoles, RAGE native linux client could happen

DSOGaming writes: "Ah, the good old days of Quake 3. Those frantic deathmatches can’t be easily forgotten and a lot of gamers are currently enjoying them via Quake Live. However, it appears that some people wish for a next generation version of iD’s best multiplayer game. Well, we got some bad news as there won’t going to be one anytime soon. When a fan asked for a new Quake 3 game, John Carmack said that it would not happen." (PC, PS3, Quake Arena Live, Quake Live, Rage, Xbox 360)

lol you serious? a shooter is a shooter is a shooter! no matter how much a washed up coder thinks its the early 90's

Play counter strike 1.6. You will rage quit then go back to your bullet sponge gaming sessions on ps3 or xbox & enjoy Death Streak Rewards.

since when did battlefield 3 have any streak reward i have a ps3 a 360 and a pretty good pc pending a gtx 680 once one is made available at my local shop cs 1.6 has outdated visuals maybe and may have been fun one day long ago but right now there is so much good stuff right now whats the point

It doesn't matter about visuals. Quake 3 looks terrible now but is one of the best FPS of all time. Console fanboys would not be able to cope with the speed of the old PC Fps's not even mentioning strafe jumping.

quake with a gamepad and auto-aim would be a joke.

the sad thing here is that these statements basically mean that we won't get a new Quake Arena game :/
Ducky  +   1388d ago
Question is whether a new Quake game is even necessary.
Aside from visuals, there's not a whole lot that can be changed without 'fan' backlash, so the best thing they can do is keep supporting the classic games, which is what QuakeLive attempts to do.

they should though, make it pc exclusive and able to run on even low end hardware and they will have a huge hit. Quake arena with some updated graphics and flashy new maps would beat the hell out of anything multi platform.
Its sad how far things have gone backwards thanks to the success of halo, call of duty and some of its clones.

Personally, I'd love to see a next-generation version of Quake 3. Same mechanics, upgraded graphics. This is how a next generation Quake 3 would look like ( ). But this is not going to happen. Still, it would be really cool

Quake live is just quake 3 with broken netcode and no gore.

let's hope Epic games pc exclusive is UT4 on UE4. I won't sell like cod on consoles anyway.

This dude seems to only have 360 on his mind. Make it for PS3 and PC cross platform play. It's not like PS3 doesn't have mouse and keybored support. Promblem solved. Oh wait I forgot he's a crappy PS3 dev. If it doesn't easly translate between 360 and PC then he doesn't want anything to do with it.

Making a game for PS3 becuz it supports keyboard and mouse is a stupid reason.

If you make it for PS3 then you'll get the 360 people angry and then the whole mess will get worse.
Skate-AK  +   1386d ago
I clearly said make it for PS3 and PC. I'm not sure if 360 has keyboard support. If it doesn't then there should be no reason from them to complain if its something their console doesnt support. It would be like PS3 people complaining cause COD doesnt have party chat cause there is no cross game chat for PS3 which be equally as stupid.

all i want to know is...Where`s my Doom 4?, so i can take it & go back into my underground bunker & play it & never be seen again til Doom5.
Vynzent  +   1386d ago
Lol I'll be fragging your ass! >:D

Doom4 will come around and I'll make you run out of your bunker enraged >:D

Lol I might be tired as I type this
