Looks good fun,and free.
May try it out in the future as iv'e just had my first online experience, yesterday with quake 4.
Great fun but frantic at times.
Slowly managing to get my frag count up as i am improving bit by bit.
Can you enlighten me as to what some of the game speak means?
It's been made quite obvious to me what noob means Lol.I think GG may be good or great game!

This site may help you with gamer speak on online games,

But i wouldnt worry to much about them all as many aint used nowadays and many of the terms are pretty obvious.

The most common ones are,

Noob - A new player or a younger player.

Bot - a program that runs as a pleyer in game or a program that helps with commands in game.

GG - Good Game.

Owned/Pwned - someone who has been taken out in an awesome way i.e. Headshot.

Epic win - when your team has utterly destroyed the enemy.

Epic fail - When your team has had its ass handed to them.

Lag - when a player or you has a bad internet connection and the game is running slow (Common excuse for a bad player)

Goodies - loads of the best weapons in game i.e. a chaingun or rocket launcher.

Nades - Grenades.

Bullet hose - a gun

Spraying - Shooting wildly, often performed by noobs.

Spawn - to reapper in game after dying.

Spawn camping - to find where players spawn and wait there for them to appear only to shoot them again, (Never do this as it can get you banned from the game)

TKing / Team killing - to shoot you own team mates, usually ends up with a ban.

Killathon - to get 5 or more kills in a game at once.

Tard, r'tard, f'tard - a player who acts like a 5 year old in game (usualy team killing and acting like a noob)

Hax - programs that allow you to cheat ingame.

OMFG!!! HAX - a shout you give out when someones using hax.

Haxxorer - Someone who uses Hax.

Hope this help, iv probably missed a few out but you will get used to using them.
