The best of the Patriot

The best scene from an otherwise pretty mediocre movie.

A Quake movie history lesson

Posted in Games, Movies, Nostalgia with tags , , on January 9, 2008 by Novi

10 years the original Quake was the height of gaming technology. A few months after the game’s release a strange phenomenon previously not seen started appearing around what was then the internet. They where called ‘Quake movies’.

They started as simple promotions for multiplayer clans, but some eventually developed in to their very own little art form.

This is one of the first Quake movies that started to plow this new ground, The Artifact. The narrative is shakey at best, but I still find it fun to watch with a scoop of nostalgia.

If nothing else I really recommend watching at 06:20 when a lovely little poem; “The Rocket Room” is being recited.

It’s a little piece of gaming history. Long before games like The Movies where ever conceived …

Blahbalicious and Operation Bayshield are two other, slightly more refined examples of this phenomenon.

This thing is one of those “Can’t stop watching” pseudo documentaries. It should probably be taken with a few truck loads of pinches of salt, but it’s quite entertaining and thought provoking.

Zeitgeist: the Movie

This thing sure proposes some super wonky conspiracy theories…

Regardless of what you think of the movie you’ll have to agree that our hero is extremely well dressed. At least I think so.
