    How the hell would you even translate a game like Quake to MMO format without looking like a complete tard?

    You checked out Huxley before? That's basically Unreal / Unreal Tournament with MMO'ness thrown in.

    I did briefly look at it, but not recently. I figured that the lack of talk about it meant it was dying a death or going the way of DNF/Too Human.

    Summin like Planetside, but a Humans V aliens in a kind of territory war for the planet.
    I don't see why an MMOFPS would be that bad a thing (it doesn't have to be an MMORPG does it).

    as long as it has not a single element of MMORPG, IMHO it'd be fun. Planetside was okay.

    i'm glad he's not going that route.. Quake is a LAN or a solo game.. that is all. Carmack++

    Bringing to life a dead thread here but I believe its already out in Asia (check the Asia website and there are also gameplay videos on the net from players) and is due for a release in the coming months elsewhere.
