Be Back Friday

11 05 16 - 12:37

I'll be back to reporting Doom and Quake news this Friday, Doom launch day.  I was origionally planning on doing a "going to buy/unbox/install" video for fun (never thought I'd even consider doing something that stupid!) but after reading that box preorders only get 9gb of data & have no preload, I'm considering not picking it up or waiting a day or two & seeing how the reviews are.  It's going to take me a day or two to download 45gb of data so I'm not to keen on that.  I even made a twitter post about it & I normally don't complain on Twitter.  :)

Oh, Steam preorders get Wolf: The Old Blood now too, us boxxers get nothing but stupid skins.  I've said this elseware, Duke Nukem Forever could very well still be my "go to" game for mindless explosions & action after Friday.  :/

Hiatus for a bit

13 04 16 - 02:02

Due to unforeseen circumstances, EarthQuake will not be updated or monitored for at least the next week, possibly two.

I assure you this is no joke, and my love for the Quake/Doom community hasn't diminished, there are just some things that I need to deal with at the present moment.

Thank you for your understanding.

Great News and Announcement!

2016 April Fools Post

You most likely noticed that I haven't been posting news lately. I've been working on something important in “real life.”

Well, time to say. I've been offered a new job that will require me to shut the site down due to conflict of interest. In fact, my other site, id Tech Forums will have to go down too.

I've been hired as the full time PR person over at id software! It's been in the works for a couple months now. My family and I will be moving to the Dallas, TX area, which is actually pretty good as my wife and I honey mooned at QuakeCon in '08 and she liked it. Plus they have more lenient gun laws so I can buy scarier looking projectile based tools. :)

Anyway, the sites will be around until the domain name expires then I won't renew them (April 2017). They just won't be updated.

Thank you for the the following over the years and I look forward to keeping you updated on all things id straight from the source!

On another note, for the past five months we've averaged about 1,000 hits per month.  big change from the ~100 when the site started!
