Quake & Shambler Sexiness [S3E23] ~ NERD CAVE SHOW 20210824.
AudioCraZ and Beard & Gary are in the studio/living room/AudioCraZ’s Questionable Decision Domicile. For the Indie Game Spotlight we give you My Friend Pedro, which is out on PC, Console and mobile. California DEFH updated their suite against Blizzard Activision to extend to contract and temp workers, as well as ABK shredding documents from HR. Quake Remastered was released at QuakeCon for Quake’s 25 anniversary, a glorious update to Quake in 4k with a new expansion and much more!
Indie Game Spotlight:
My Friend Pedro is a fun side scrolling game that was originally released on PC and console, and recently they released Ripe for Revenge on iOS and Android mobile devices. This is a fun and addictive side scrolling bullet time banana family saving game set to some great music. I have been enjoying it on iOS for a few weeks now.
Yes talking Banana, how the refunds on clowns have been the bane of my existence. @deadtoast_com bravo on a fun mobile game. You got my $3 pretty easily. My Friend Pedro is pretty addictive. pic.twitter.com/27DsxTDdHn

California DFEH vs Activision Blizzard Update
California Department of Fair Employment and Housing updated their suite against Activision Blizzard to expand from employees to temporary and contract employees. They also state that Activision Blizzard “shredded” HR documents, but no clear indication of when those documents were destroyed.
Quake Remastered – 25 Years of Quake
At QuakeCon 2021, Quake Remastered was released as a update to the original 1996 game. It was given a lot of love and very subtle tweaks to make the game playable in 4k on PC’s as well as making it playable on consoles with crossplay. This game is beautiful, and the tweaks and changes were done to preserve the original game, but allow it to be enjoyed by all. Quake Remasted was a collaborative effort between Bethesda, ID Software, MachineGames and Nightdive Studios. On top of the graphical and console ports, you get both original game expansions (Scourge of Armagon & Dissolution of Eternity) as well as a new expansion Dimension of the Machine, which was created for quakes 25th anniversary.

There were some very minor and subtle changes made to textures, monster models, and player models for the remaster. All of which were very well done. Insert “Muah” here. For all the members involved with this project, we appreciate you.
Congrats to @idSoftware @bethesda @machinegames on the release of the Quake Remaster. I was so surprised to see the full E2M6 in there! Thank you for doing that. It killed me to cut it in 1996, and I sincerely appreciate it. #quake pic.twitter.com/qMfnleSWzO

It was also revealed by John Romero that one of his maps in Quake, E2M6 the Dismal Oubliette was “restored” to its original state. For the 1996 release, a portion of the beginning of the map had to be “trimmed” to reduce the map file size to the limitations they had set at that time.
