    Hey guys, if you've got a jailbroken Surface you can play quake 1 and quake 2 on it now! bfosterjr ported them over to WindowsRT. I put up some videos of them running in case you're not willing to jailbreak your Surface.

    Are you able to plug in a xbox 360 controller and play quake? This would be a great game to play on my commute to work in my carpool.
