hmmm i didnt get too much this game much at all. i think i only play it a couple of times and thats it. so i have no idea if there were issues with the MP on the 360. There probably were and if they have manage to fix them and hopefully make the multipler experience better it might be a good idea and its quake we talking about so they do deserve another change to make it right. Lets just hope they do.
Just like Nexuiz you needed a certain amount of players for a game to start, so with a dead community you could search for 20-30 min and nothing. The game dident have any bots either so there was no chance to get a MP game to start, add the leaderboards achievement for #1 spots and there where only achievement boosters playing it.

There has to be a reason why ppl didnt like the game much. Yes the MP experience was complety diferent than the older quake games multiplayer but they weere probably trying to keep up with times and making something new. But if u look at this video thats the pc version btw the game doesnt look bad so am just wondering what were the issues the 360 had back then as i didnt play it much or even remember much about this game.

But considering I could probably have a better experience on Quake Live on PC with m/kb, and at a steady 120 fps, I don't know if it's even worth it.

On a different topic, I played Quake2world for a bit online yesterday. It doesn't have the polish of Q3A, but Q2 mp has a certain charm that I can't quite place. Maybe because the game was made for pure fun, before the politics of competitive play took hold of the series.

Umm, does this mean I have to buy a new copy of Q4??
I bought the game in January from steam.. I was late from multiplayer matches
you and me both my friend. Those matches i was watching look awesome. Kinda wish i had being playing pc games at the time just to see if i would actually enjoy it. But lets wait and see what happens.

I still play Q4 online to this day. You only need 2 to start a match, that's it. 2 or more players in the lobby will start a 2 minute countdown to the start of the match in order to give more people a chance to join, but if you have a full room the game starts automatically. There is a small but dedicated community of us left that AREN'T boosters, I can usually find games if I play in the afternoons or evenings. Early morning and late night can be ghost towns on the game though and there ARE still boosters, although they do not comprise the majority of players on.

Bethesda is awful and half the blame belongs to them for tarnishing id so much with RAGE.

I must admit, I'd really like to see it getting a second chance. Hope it's free for people who already own a copy.

For Brink i had high hopes also, but it looks these days there's never gonna be a shooter like RTCW or ET which was free.
I think we may blaim the consoles for that although the consoles are getting behind these days so pc gaming is slightly making its move back.
