We understand that much of the appeal for id's free-to-play browser shooter Quake Live comes from the rich veins of nostalgia that lie therein -- but that doesn't mean we don't expect the game to improve upon the franchise's roots. Fortunately, id Software just clued in their forumgoers to a few we...

Alright, enough. Stop. You can lay off the F5 button and cease your (frankly) childish refreshing of www.quakelive.com. The public beta of Quake Live – promised to be available today – is finally live and, unless you live somewhere not in the vicinity of Dallas-based id's timezone, it's...
