Brings back memories... Once upon a time I spent many hours of my life playing Quake Team Fortress.

You should play gl quake next time.  It makes the game much better looking.  It's also one of the very first game to use gpu acceleration.

half life was definitely one of the first with checkpoints if not the first, but halo made the autosave thing really popular they were the first to do it constantly to keep you pushin forward

I dont get it why do people who work on gaming sites so bad games even though they were from the quake and counterstrike generation, makes me wonder how can we trust their reviews if they cant even play the games properly.

if GS had a gaming competition, i would totally see gamespot UK and Asia taking it with Zorine and Danny. So painful to watch the other staff play games.

Does anyone know how I get full mouse control like Danny has, I know about +mlook, but that only does vertical and I can't turn unless I use A and D.  It's super annoying to play and I can't find anything on full mouse control.

Here is some good trivia btw. The giant eyeless yeti things are called Shamblers, which is a reference to the Dimensional Shamblers from the H.P. Lovecraft story "The Horror at the Museum".

Anyone else see them using cheats? I finally noticed that they were cheating at 55:50.

Yeah, the guy who isn't Danny, its like he was sucking the life out of the stream whilst danny had to carry it and he wasn't even playing.

The headline title even reads "danny will be playing"  instead we watch danny do good for 5 minutes, followed by an hour of this nasal boring guy. zzzzz

Quake 1 on Nightmare huh? Real men playing.

No CoD bullshit here, where there is lame coverfight pattern and if played on Veteran, enemy becomes some autoaim always hit terminator vision units. NOT FUN.

Quake 1 on Nightmare. FUN


F***ing learn you shit Activision. Because if someone else wont, then im gonna come soon from all the way here from cold Nordic Finland to warm Cali or whatever and f***ing shut your Call of Duty down for good.

Having fun on Nightmare? Think you're pretty good? Still having fun? Just wait until you start episode 4 and meet the spawns.

I recently started up some quake 2 on hard mode. That game is still fun as hell. Quake 1 nightmare is too hard for me!

OH MY GOD, did somebody say QUAKE 1 on Nightmare?!...those words reach out to my heart, I finished that game on that difficulty around 15 times, definitely the most times I ever finished a game...

I friggn' love how GameSpot goes back an does these old games from back in the day! ReTrO 4 LiFe! Oh, when games were innovative instead of an upgraded version of an idea prior to it's existence!

It's funny listening to Danny say "gollum" instead of "golem" over and over.

@Tremblay343 Something isn't right, that should do it. Your A and D keys should NOT be turning, though. Those are supposed to be for strafing. Make sure they are listed as bind "a" "+moveleft" and bind "d" "+moveright" in your config.cfg, and that there aren't any duplicate entries in config.cfg or autoexec.cfg. Make sure autoexec.cfg has +mlook in it.

I personally recommend using ProQuake if you aren't already using it. If you have the Steam version, the music is missing. Put the music in a folder called music in the Id1 folder and change your settings in-game to play MP3s. Hopefully this helps! ^_^

@silversix_ Plenty of good players at Gamespot. It's their passion in life - shouldn't be too hard to imagine they are good at it.

Time your strafing to actually avoid his lightning attacks for Christ's sake.

Don't just move left and right arbitrarily with no thought as to when you're actually going to be moving back in front of his attack.

Christ, it's like basic common sense.

Sorry, it's just frustrating as hell watching you do the same thing over and over without at some point realizing you might have to actually tweak your tactics just a little bit.

Listen to the other guy, he at least knows what he's doing.

@StinkySkunkGirl @Tremblay343 I downloaded the ultimate quake patch from the steam forums and the CD music and mouse look option is all already, but it did the same thing as +mlook did, just pure vertical movement and nothing else.  I'll try playing around with the key bindings because I was playing with them before, but that shouldn't really affect my horizontal mouse movement not working :S

@fatee @silversix_  But they are not. I have seen enough game play video from other GS staff, they are not even half as good as Danny.

@StinkySkunkGirl Well I started it up again and all of a sudden i have full mouse control so...i dunno. lol
