    "The title is shaping up to be an absolute stonker according to PCGamer."

    Is that like a stinker with an "o" it? like it stinks but the graphicss make you go "oh" i.e. "stonker"?

    So, following along with game industry standard, it'll actually be released some time in 2007?

    Quake 4 will inovate the FPS genre with the built-in addition of having enough light to actually see! No longer will you be forced to install a Duct-Tape mod to be able to use a flashlight!

    Apparently in the future rocket launchers, "gravity guns" and experimental laser weapons will be ineffective against wooden walls, piles of rocks and souped up hummers. In addition, a mute lab assistant with no military training and armed with only a crowbar will magicly turn into a super puzzle solving hero who will save humanity from an interdimensional invading army after arming himself with pistols, SMGs, shotguns, machine guns, a laser rifle, rocket launchers, laser trip mines and alien weaponry. Oh and the government will send between a company or battalion of marines in order to kill him... and fail.

    I'd take aircraft grade aluminum walls if it meant getting a slightly more acceptable atmosphere. (Trained military marine or untrained lab assistant? Who's the more likely hero?)
