Scrabble's Favourite Shooter: Nexuiz

What better way to start a Monday than with a new trailer for the "reimagining" of Nexuiz, an arena-based shooter that aims to resurrect warm memories of killing friends in improbable environments? Maybe a preferably beginning would be a stroll through Montmartre, ending with a fresh coffee by the Seine as conversations erudite and elegant intermingle with the aroma of freshly baked bread? Unfortunately, that's not going to be happening, so instead let's all feast our faces on a short video that demonstrates some of the many mutators on offer in IllFonic's ill-titled slice of deathmatchery.

None of the mutators on display look hugely imaginative but it's probably achieved its goal in that I'm becoming all misty-eyed as I remember the glory days of playing Unreal Tournament until the early hours of the morning, a series of memories that shock me into the realisation that it has been quite some time since I last enjoyed - really enjoyed - a competitive multiplayer shooter.

It does look a bit too shiny though, doesn't it?
