Some new Quake Wars screenshots seem explosive

Everyone loves the Quake franchise. Even those directly opposed to FPS titles from birth should be able to appreciate the nuances and intricacies the Quake games have brought to the -- oh, whatever. They're a good FPS series, but that's about it. However, with the newest upcoming entry, Quake Wars, they might actually change things up enough to appear fresh and delicious.

The action shooter combining real-time strategy elements is showing off some new screenshots today and they look fantastic. Whether in a tank, on foot, or some kind of jet, the game looks intense. The game will hit the PC in mid-June, but a console release is expected shortly thereafter for the 360 and PS3. We don't know if the final result will merit all the hype, but we can hope so! Anyone else pumped for this game?

1. Quake4 on the PC was badass. It took all the fruityness of Quake3, dropped Jack Bauer and a nuclear bomb on it, then took what was left (Quake2) and put beautiful graphics on it. I'm looking forward to this game on the PS3. Plus it's looking like a better Battlefield 2142, so I'm all for it.

3. This game has the same browns as Warhawk. I know it's not as realistic but a little color sure makes games more enjoyable.

I mean its real sharp but bland. Looks fun though.

4. Nick, I can tell it's you writing just by the freaking headline:

Freaking goofy/hilarious:

"Even those directly opposed to FPS titles from birth..."

WTF?

Bring it.

I don't generally like FPS, but I have to admit: the first time I saw and played Quake, it was like... WHAAAA...>??>>>

Next was that precursor to Bioshock (what the heck was it called?) which was amazing with atmosphere.

After that, I watched friends play them but didn't play again until Resistance, which I still play from beginning to end because I love the gameplay and the story.

oog, that seemed like a plug, ma bad...
