Missing nothing. It's a Quake/Unreal Tournament clone, which got old fast when they where new.

Also, I've never created another account, Larabel is just too lazy to run the tests for games people actually play so that the people that are actually buying the hardware have a good idea of how it performs in real world scenarios.
just tried these with the latest kernal
performance is miles ahead of catalyst on l4d2 ! really smooth no mouse lag !! (which is still present on the catalyst after a year)
using A10 trinity APU.
Not bad, it's around 80% of Catalyst speed in non-pixel-pusher benchmarks. Which is actually not that far from the radeonsi results, which is pretty amazing for radeonsi (although admittedly they had r600g, Gallium3D and Mesa to build upon).
Yep, games I got maybe a week or 2 out of before I got so bored with them I never played them again. And I'm talking got them within the month that they where released.

Though you'd know that if you bothered to take your head out of Larabel's lower intestine.
Again, it's an entirely different situation... Windows and OS X sites more well staffed... Much more lucrative ad market, etc. Those that try for very fine quality to Linux articles just end up going bust; i.e. H-Online, the original Linux.com, NewsForge, etc etc.
