Then we have a quick, largely insubstantial discussion about something else entirely.

Gather, Mortals: Carmack Speaks (And id Streams It)

The day foretold in The Prophecy is finally upon us. Every year, for just a few/ten/fourteen hundred shining hours, the planets are drawn into potentially cataclysmic alignment by the gravitational field surrounding John Carmack's brain. During this time, all eyes turn to QuakeCon's majestically orange-hued stage, where id Software unveils a new Doom 4 logo (NEXT YEAR WE PROMISE) and then Carmack erupts into a…
