Updates and demos

The DOOM 3 1.1 patch is out, you can grab it at FileFront. It's pretty much the same as 1.05 beta. The SDK is not included. If you don't have DOOM 3 yet, try the demo.

There are lots of new UT2004 files, including new demos for PC, Mac and Linux. And an Editor's Choice Bonus Pack from Epic, it has 4 new maps, 3 new vehicles, and 6 new characters. You'll need the 3323 patch to use it.

An MP Demo for Tribes: Vengeance has been release. It's not my cup of tea, but many people are big Tribes fans. It's only 472MB :)

The latest in Futuremark's bi-annual series of "I need a new computer" benchmarks is out. You can get 3DMark05 from FileFront.

You may be wondering why I link to FileFront. Well, even with the short wait they sometimes have, I still find it the fastest place to get game files. They can always max out my 3Mb connection.
