John Carmack done at id?

07 08 13 - 19:10

It seems questionable, but Bethesda confirmed that John spending time with the Oculus VR folks. How much time, not sure, different articles seem to say different things. His twitter account said he's spending more time with Oculus vs id, Eurogamer is reporting he's left id, Bethesda said his job at id is unaffected.

Either way, he's still doing game related work and this could be a great thing. He's been with id since the start and perhaps he's getting ready to move on. Who knows, he's still young!

Thanks to the thread on Doom3World for talking about this.

Quake News Overload

05 08 13 - 13:52

QuakeCon's over and there's a bunch of classic Quake news now! Hey, go figure!


*Func_Msgboard has info on a fixed-up map called “Beyond Belief”. Started in 2008 but stopped soon after the initial beta release, it's been finished by negke. It can be run in stock Quake or with the original Beyond Belief mod by Matthias Worch.


*Remember how the Quake mod “In the Shadows” was done? Well, it's not done. It was decided to keep development going on the side, so now we're getting updates! Over at we've got some explaining about how the new monsters are improved, new map designs and talk about the stealth system. Head over to to read the whole thing!


* also has a great article written by numbersix about the advancement of Quake since it's initial release. Give it a read!

QuakeCon is Upon Us!

01 08 13 - 18:47

I'm not there and there are dozens of sites (and QuakeCon's site) that are posting pictures, news info, updates, etc. I don't really want to duplicate stuff that, odds are, you've already seen. I DO have some neat stuff to tell you though, in case you missed it.


First off, there's a special Steam sale. 25% off of Bethesda and id's game catalog. Not bad.


Second, I receive this neat PDF file full of stats of QuakeCon. For example, did you know that at QC 2012 there were about 10,000 attendees and 2,800 BYOC'ers? Read the PDF for all the neat info!


If you're at QuakeCon, be sure to enjoy it!
