    Quake Live will finally go into Open Beta on February 24th.

    If anybody gets into the beta and wants to share their thoughts on QL, they can do so in this thread or on its review page:

    OH MY GOD

    I'M LITERALLY STAYING UP ALL NIGHT ON THE 23RD AND DOWNLOADING IT AT 12:00AM.

    I can't tell you how amazed I am at how Quake could be released for FREE, with such a great web-integration board and tournament system.

    This will be AMAZING. According to the developers, it's simply a re-packed and improved Quake III Arena, so I'm gunna be ready to pwn.

    Battlefield Heroes looks too much to me like a copy of Team Fortress 2 with less of a comic environment but more of a war environment, while still trying to keep the comic value and graphics of the characters and classes.

    Comedy+Something serious like war=Fail

    BF3 Will be coming out soon enough. That's where the competitive section of 2142 will pick up again. Me and .iNs. be pwning nubs in TWL. xD. BF3 = 80 People playing simultaneously + Better maps. BF3 = Remake of 2142 but with different guns and maps, plus it will be straight up competition.

    Yes, it's a web browser played game, but while you're playing it downloads the files necessary for playing.

    There's no download time, so there's virtually no download, but technically there is one.

    And it's AMAZING. I just hate that waiting line...

    Yes, they do need more servers, Hahahah

    It actually moves along nicely, although I heard iD` soft says that they're taking away queues in the full released version with more servers.

    If you follow them on Twitter, they released a statement saying that with the new queue system just updated, it might suddenly jump around and freak out.
