Guess who we are? Heroes of the 80s? We are!
I've just been playing Nebula CTF and I'm amazed
what the QB comunity made it to. The Oblivion Engine
seems to get more amazing with every day passing by,
Ped Xing could kick many Console Style RPG ass' and
Ghini Run would be one cool SNES game.
QB games can surely be compared with profesionell
games. The community grew bigger than any other
programming-community on the net and many QB
can finally be taken seriously. Didn't we leave VB
and C behind? I guess we did.

So, why 'heroes of the 80s'?
Well, the latest QB games are much better
than any other game developed in the 80s.

Ten years ago nobody would have
thought QB would be more than just a text-adventure
programming language. At the moment qb coders create
working 3D engines.This is my opinion and surely not yours,
but i hope you get the point.

The difference is that 80's games ran in 286s and ours need a Pentium III :lol:

Not the 80's...

QB technology is far more advanced than that.

I'd say 1990's technology... 3D only got started in the mid-1990's...

And what now with those QB to C converters, it's getting better. (though I can't figure out how to use them.. ANY OF THEM. Ah well)
