Quake is returning to us, soon. In what appears to be another quasi-MOBA done up in FPS style. But if that ain’t your speed, how about a fucking official new episode for Quake 1? Yeah, dude. Yeah.
John Carmack, the coding genius/nightmare behind Quake and Doom left id Software last year. While most thought it was because he wanted to roll much deeper with the Oculus Rift, there’s a bit more to the story. Specifically, he was all “let’s like partner the fuck up! with Oculus” and the parent company ZeniMax was like “naw, bruh.”
John Carmack is a beast. Created the engines that powered Doom, Quake, and countless other games. Dude is also sort of a douchebag. (Read Masters of Doom. Awesome book.) But whatever. The man who Really Hasn’t Made A Good Game In Eons has left the company he helped found. To work on the Oculus Rift.
There are few things are gratifying as ripping off a blast from a BFG 9000 and watching demon douchebags scream in horror at their own vaporization. Here’s a video chronicling the evolution of this most glorious video game death machine.
