    Phoronix: Blood Frontier: The Latest Open-Source FPS

    Cube was early on one of the first open-source first-person shooter games designed around its own engine. The 3D graphics for Cube were not the best, but development of this game had been going on since 2001. Based upon the Cube engine was then the Sauerbraten game that was also referred to as Cube 2 with its engine being redesigned. Now though another game is emerging and its engine is derived from Sauerbraten. This game is called Blood Frontier and in this article we have a few screenshots of this game, which is working its way towards a stable release for the open-source community.

    Blood Frontier is, far and away, the best open source FPS I have played yet. I encourage people to try it.
    It's not new either... I played it early last year.

    To the poster that said he got motion sickness from cube and sauerbraten, I can't say I've ever experienced this or known anyone else who to experience this, but I definitely had motion sickness when I tried Nexuiz.

    Which is one of the reasons I use Gentoo over Slackware - which is odd because Slackware is still my all time favorite distro. I guess I just have an emotional attachment to the damn thing.

    That's why I don't install anything unnecessary / or something temporary goes into it's own self-contained dir in /opt. Additional thought brings better usage philosphy too.

    I'll bet removing stuff's a pain though...

    I did LFS some time ago too. A must have experience for any Linux guru out there. Today I'm into GenToo though since I get the same ( all self compiled and chooseable ) without the high maintenance time and cost ( especially if you like me administer from home computers over road warrior laptops to business servers ). So I consider GenToo an automated LFS ( even if ALFS itself does exist ). One of my pals at university also wrote an auto-installer system for LFS. Don't know how far he got as our ways split when I switched university back then.

    So, you use LFS, then?

    Even Portage really counts as a package manager, so you can't be using Gentoo even if you don't use package managers...
