I figured OpenArena is popular enough I figured i'd make this thread for any sightings, hearings of this in any media.

To start things off, zakk pointed out in Games for Windows 1/12/2007's podcast that OpenArena was mentioned 12 minutes in, and is talked about in the last two minutes.

asking when OA3 will be done won't get OA3 done.
Progress of OA3 currently occurs behind closed doors alone

I do not provide technical support either.

This free-software Czech site has a very positive review of OpenArena.

I mentioned it in a listing of free multiplayer games that I wrote in my blog a few weeks back.  I hope to do a full review soon.

I used to see OA a lot on linux sites and I think it may have been in Linux Journal a few months back, it's cool to see people talking about it Smiley

I've seen some articles at PlanetQuake. For example, the 0.8.0 arrival:
