Anyone played it yet?

If you haven't heard about it, Quake Live is an online browser-based version of Quake III with updated textures and models. When you set up an account, you are tested to determine your skill level...then the auto-match feature finds game servers just right for your skills. The game also has bots for offline practice.

And it's free!

I've played a bit, not much yet though. Not a lot of time these days. But a good ol' fashioned frag fest now and again is a lot of fun.

Betas are "risky" in the fact that they're not fully-developed yet and might have problems. That being said, they're also not going to colossally ruin your system, because they've more-than-likely been tested out before.
