Quake Mobile next month

Filed under
Gaming

Quake, the famous 3D Shooter from id Software that was originally released in 1996 for the PC, is being ported for 3D-enabled mobile phones this July.

Quake Mobile is in development by a company called Bare Naked Productions, the game is being specifically designed for a new generation of mobile phones handsets that feature dedicated 3D graphics hardware. This hardware allows the phone to display complex 3D environments and objects, exactly what Quake needs. I remember the original Quake hogging all of my system resources, so I added a 16MB Monster PCI 3D graphics card, this kept the FPS down.

The 3D-enabled mobile phones will be coming out of Korea next month, no particulars were revealed in the announcement, just a teaser for us Quake fans. But I'm sure the hardware will be much better in mobiles phones than what we were using on our desktops. So everyone put your armor vests on and load up your rocket launchers, Quake Mobile is coming.

  • Equal Rating Innovation Challenge: And the Semifinalists are…
    About three months ago we launched this global Equal Rating Innovation Challenge to help catalyze new thinking and innovation to provide access to the open Internet to those still living without. Clearly the idea resonated. Thanks to the help of numerous digital inclusion initiatives, think tanks, impact hubs and various local communities that supported us, our challenge has spurred global engagement. We received 98 submissions from 27 countries around the world. This demonstrates that there are entrepreneurs, researchers, and innovators in myriad fields poised to tackle this huge challenge with creative products and services. [...] Following the mentorship period, on March 9, we will host a day-long event in New York City on the topic of affordable access and innovation. We will invite speakers and researchers from around the world to provide their valuable insights on the global debate, various initiatives, and the latest approaches to affordable access. The main feature of this event will be presentations by our semifinalists, with a thorough Q&A from our judges. We will then have a week of open public voting on EqualRating.com to help determine the winners of the Challenge. The winners will then be announced at RightsCon on March 29 in Brussels.
  • Serverless Computing: 10 Things You Need to Know
    In fact, Gartner referred to serverless computing in its Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2017.

But the firm also cautions that this is a long-term trend that will require IT to adopt new tools and new ways of doing things.

  • Happy birthday: Jimbo Wales' sweet 16 Wikipedia fails
    Sixteen years ago, Larry Sanger had the idea for a wiki-based encyclopaedia anyone could edit: the "wiki-pedia". On January 15, 2001, he and Jimmy Wales launched the site. Today, it's everyone's go-to place for quick factlets. Wikipedia's convenience is undeniable. But its anonymously compiled content has flaws and quirks traditional encyclopaedias never had. Understanding these is vital for wiki-literacy. To illustrate the issues, here are sixteen of Wikipedia's biggest cock-ups. Follow the hyperlinks to go down the Wikipedia wormhole...
