John Carmack Interview About Quake Live

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - at 10:21

ComputerAndVideoGames.com has published an interview of John Carmack about Quake Live. Quake Live is the online version of Quake 3 Arena and allows to quickly set up and play Quake 3 without the pain of downloading Q3A and the latest patches, connecting to servers and find other gamers.

Read the complete interview here: On how Quake Live brings brawling to our browsers

Q: So is Quake Live the next step for PC gaming?
A: I don’t think this is the future of PC gaming, though it’s certainly an aspect of it. PC developers need to start considering the PC as a unique platform rather than a gaming machine that happens to be in your den rather than your living room.
The traditional big-budget, media-rich, single-player type games like we used to make at id Software through to Doom 3, all that really has to be done cross-platform on the consoles now, to basically cover the development expenses for something like that. But the PC still has huge success stories, with things like The Sims 2 and World of Warcraft, which have been bigger successes than any console game has ever been, or possibly ever could be in the near future. At the end of the day, you have to look at the PC as a platform with its own strengths and weaknesses.

Now that PhysX is accelerated by GeForce 8+ GPUs, some websites try to realize the dream for many users: a GeForce accelerating PhysX for Radeon. This time, the guys at Speedtime.cn have coupled a Radeon HD 4870 for the graphics and a GeForce 9800 GTX for PhysX. NVIDIA PowerPack as well as oZone3D.Net PhysX FluidMark have been used for this benchmark.

Want a bunch of GeForce 9800 GT reviewed in the same time? Hardware Canucks did it!

The 9800 era is finally fully upon us with the release of the 9800 GT. Since this card was silently launched some time ago, we figured we would give you a good old-fashioned roundup to put it into perspective for you. We amassed a collection of cards from the likes of EVGA, ASUS, Gigabyte and Palit and put them through their paces.

Google Chrome: New Internet Browser

Google has launched its own internet browser called Chrome.

You can download it here: Chrome @ Google.

From the first feedbacks, Chrome seems to be very fast, faster than FireFox 3.0. The interface is very neat, almot pure. But the EULA (end user licence agreement) seems to hide some bad things…

Here is the Google Chrome announcement video:




From this video, we learn Chrome is made of 3 fundamental blocks:

  • rendering engine (based on Apple Safari)
  • multi-processes technology: each tab runs in its own process: that makes the browser more stable
  • new and fast Javascript engine called V8

Here is a video from the development team:
