Quake III DeFRaG World Cup 2008

DeFRaG is a Quake III Arena mod where the goal is to remove ALL violence and replace it with skill. As such, the goal isn’t the most frags; it’s completing a level by shooting all the targets on walls, or getting from A to B in the fastest time possible (which is what the video below is about). Getting from A to B might sound easy, but I assure you, it is absolutely rock-solid hard – you need to abuse physics and keep your momentum up throughout an entire level to be able to, literally, leap over buildings in a single bound… Without that kind of speed, you’re going to be like Neo in the jump program ;-)

The only thing I can think of to which younger gamers (meaning those who’ve never played Q3A) might relate would be to think of it as an old-school version of Mirror’s Edge – with rocket launchers to assist you in your run… Only that actually makes it 10x harder, because you have to be spot on with where and when you use them as well as your regular aiming and jump timings.

Anyways, the point of this post is the 2008 DeFRaG world cup video “Trixo” below – which is all kinds of awesome… (Hint: Fullscreen makes this 10x cooler to watch).

Also, sweet riff on GLaDOS, no? =D
