Quake Live Beta Up And Queuing


Actually the queues have subsided to just a couple of minutes now, but last night they were swollen with tens of thousands of people trying to log on to the new service. Apart from being over-subscribed and the verification emails taking a while to turn up, the browser-launched Quake 3 is looking good. The front end system, with its rankings and insta-matching systems, appears remarkably solid and easy to navigate. Why not go and have a look? It's completely free, after all.

I'm going to try and get enough time with it to post some deeper and more coherent impressions later in the week, but it does given me the fear that I'll be dragged back into my decade-old Quake addiction. That game is just too slick.
