Quake Live beta

Quake 3 in a browser? Yes please!

I just got my beta invite today, and I played the first “training” match. It’s pretty sweet! I’m sure I can’t talk about anything more than “There is a beta, I’m in the beta”, so I’ll hold off on impressions until beta testers are released from NDA’s, but I’m excited. Alongside MUDs, Quake was my first real multi-player online experience. Being able to play it in a browser is pretty startling, to be honest. I remember that I had to play Quake at work, because my machine at home wouldn’t handle it. This had to be around 1996 or so.

By my timeline, that means we could have EQ in a browser in a couple of years, right? :)

    Do you have some beta keys to share ? :p

    • Haha, no, unfortunately I don’t have any keys to share.

      I think I signed up for this sometime last fall…might have even been last summer. I forgot all about it, to be honest, but it’s been fun.
