Quake Review (PS4) - PSU

Quake seemingly returns from the dead and proves that its reputation as one of the greatest shooters ever is well earned to say the least.

Are you for real? It wasn't even a 9.5/10 when it came out!

Ratty834d ago

Or you know maybe scores are entirely subjective.

CrimsonIdol833d ago (Edited 833d ago )

Yes, congratulations! I don't (and also at the time didn't) think it was a 9.5/10. and that was 25 years ago. In the Duke vs Quake debate I was firmly in the Duke camp. In fact in the Quake vs Doom camp I was firmly in the Doom camp. When you take away the technical achievements there's not much left besides some drab brown maps with 1 or 2 enemies in every corridor.

Even after playing around with the settings, the controls make it virtually unplayable using a controller.

KillBill834d ago

What???? Have you never used a controller? Have you never played Quake??? What part of the controller use makes it unplayable for you but the vast many gamers that have used controller find it easy?

DJStotty833d ago

Not sure whether you grew up with these kind of games or not, but i put the X Y sensitivity straight on 10, and i was flying around corriders fragging like i had never been away.

It's on Game Pass and I had a blast playing it today. Just imagine Quake 3 Arena on the Xbox series x OMG.

CrimsonIdol834d ago

Quake 3 was the epitome of twitch mouse and keyboard gaming. Spinning around 180 degrees in a split second firing off a rocket in someones face then down at the ground to rocket jump to another level. imagining that on a controller kind of grosses me out.

Ratty834d ago

Quake 3 was basically the original Quake with slower gameplay so I don't know why you're implying it was so fast.

CrimsonIdol833d ago (Edited 833d ago )

errrrr.... did you play Quake 3? I think you're thinking of Doom 3 ....?
Here's a primer for you:


Atari's re-focus on retro

wow... had no idea they were getting that deep into acquisitions. Hopefully they crank out more new ideas on some old classics.

Snookies121d 10h ago (Edited 1d 9h ago )

Still remember my old 14" TV with the Atari sticker I had on it, haha... The sticker came with Unreal Tournament 2004 and I just had to slap that bad boy on my enormous beast of a display.

I would like to see Atari getting back into the gaming scene though. We could use some old blood stepping back into the ring these days.

But this "Atari" is just a holdings company that bought the Atari name many years ago. They have no relation to the original company.

the Atari of old is long gone. This new Atari is looking to resurrect the image while also embracing modern / retro vibes.

The current official price for the Series S in Brazil is R$3,599. During the last Black Friday, many retailers like Amazon and a local one called Kabum sold the PS5 Disc for R$3,440. The latter reported that they sold the equivalent of the height of 10 Eiffel Tower of PS5 consoles on Black Friday which people are speculating is somewhere between 3k - 7k per tower or 30k to 70k PS5 sold by one single retailer during the sale period.

Meanwhile no news about sales of the Xbox Series X or S. The latter did get into a sale as well, but the sales price was still 25% higher than the price that the console was commonly found before the price hike. Whereas the Series X did not get any significant deals during the period.

Before the price hike and the sales, the PS5 had 18% whereas the Xbox Series had 14% of the Brazilian gaming market (PGB report 2023). But I'm curious to see how the numbers will be for the 2024 report.

Frankly I wouldn't want to touch the Brazilian market myself. Female players have been murdered because of gaming over there. The country has a huge issue with handling masculinity online way more so than anywhere else.

I'd gtfo of any association with that sorta terrorism.

Oh sure… yeah, totally what I think of when I’m busy entertaining myself by gaming and breaking away from the norm mainline of highly profitable / incentivized concerns in the world
