id Software Quake 4

Released earlier today from id Software was both the client and server Linux binaries for Quake 4 and with that we bring a plethora of new screenshots. Although the v1.0.2147 release does contain a few bugs, overall these Linux binaries are phenomenal and from our experience thus far we've very much enjoyed both the single and multi-player gaming. For your viewing pleasure today, we've bundled 120 pictures from the first seven levels of Quake 4, to ensure we don't spoil this excellent gaming experience.

Nexuiz 1.0

Cube was one of the first 3D first person shooters that offered an intelligent game play complete with its own engine, using SDL and OpenGL while complying with open-source standards. Although the graphics aren't the best in the current Cube Engine version (2004), it continues to be a very popular game for open-source gamers who enjoy the most out of first person shooters. On May 31, 2005 a new GNU game has finally made its way out for public release after nearly four years in development, this game is Nexuiz. The game, in its 1.0 release, contains over 17 maps, 28 playable characters, and 10 music tracks. It even supports up to 64 players on death-match servers. All parts of this game are licensed under the GPL (GNU Public License), but exactly how does this game look and feel? We have plenty of screenshots today to report our initial findings.
