Today another QuakeWorld movie got released. This time from Brazil, named Brazil.Extreme.Frags, where the keyword here is Extreme!
In my little book this has all the qualities a real good QW movie needs, Oringinality, hi quality, good music and foremost GREAT frags :)
From the looks of it, fuhquake was the client used to create the demos for this movie. Taking advantage of 24bit texture implementation in this great client, combined with the above qualities of this movie, it all comes together on a higher level. Best QW movie ever ? Puh, hard to say, but IMO its deffently upthere with the few other top QW movies created so far.
RocketZ have been so kind to provide us with a temporary link for this movie. It's "only" on a 10mbit, so don't come crawling and whining to me, if your oc45 only gets 400k/sec !!
The movie is roughly 160mb, and you can download it by clicking here

Not any interesting games played since last newspost, or rather - no games at all! Thats not good enough boys ! :) Get up da chair, and shake da bootie on those QW servers.
We wont be totally deprived from some quality action though here in NQR. So far the sunday shedule for Slackers sticks, and they will be facing LegeArtis, currently ranked number #1 !! The time is set to 23.00CET.
The headadmin from Smackdown, is also the leader for The Fragging Pumpkins.
With their latest match against 4Kings, they brought their score up to 7 losses and 0 wins. It looks tough for TFP to stay in Division 2 for next season. But they are only about halfway through the season though, so you never know.
Division 3 has been quite active lateley, accounted for 4 out of 6 games the past days.
The pure norwegian team Mostly Harmless played 2 matches on the 17th. first against Suicide Commandos and after Osams, both from sweden.
After a 1-2 loss vs Suicide Commandos, on a rather Packetloss filled server, Mostly Harmless took their revenge, when they later that evening met Osams.
After winning convincingly on DM2, they had to work a bit harder on the next map - E1M2. Eventhough Osams fought well, Mostly Harmless had more control over YA/GL area, thus winning with a mere 6 frags diffrence. Still enough to pull a victory of this one, and placing Mostly Harless #5 in division 3.
In the other 2 division 3 games, Gamblers participated in both. With a 2-0 victory over Warhammer, and a 1-2 loss to Numeric, Gamblers stays in top 3 with 15 points, only one point infront of Campbusters2.
yeah i agree, very nice movie. I actually thought the first brazillian movie had some really nice frags but it was let down by distracting flourescent green rocket trails, lowish quality and inconsistant fragging skills.
This effort is much better, they have down a great job on presentation, moves at a slick pace, and has nice visuals without it distracting from the actual action. The skills on display are also quite impressive, with some great dm3 action.... anyone else getting a little bored of seeing hundreds of end/amphi rocket sequences? dmm4 is kinda like, "lets try and make an FDE since we got 999 attempts at midairs" whereas each 4on4 is different and that shows true skills and quick thinking.
I also thought the producers of this movie where quite original, usuing different camera angles etc to show things, and the move from black&white at start of movie into glorious technicolour for the real action is a nice touch.
Anyway this was a quite unexpected release for me, and should help keep people going until FDE3 is released.
