It's really isn't as bad as it appears. Anyone that previously had switched over to steam (which the devs had been giving reminders to switch for years) still has the game free and doesn't have to pay the subscription services ever again. And now instead of paying $36/month, now you just pay $10 once and don't ever have to worry about whether or not you've paid your subscription this month.

I was never into quake, but people actually paid $36 a month to play it??

Edit: ok I see for extra feature, still that's a lot.

I really wonder what kind of video game feature is worth $36 a month, to be honest, and I'm not cheap on video games by any means.

A good plan that will never work. You can have all the proof and the best arguments, but stupid people will still buy the game because "Oh My God! The New Fallout!".

I was banned from ESO for having the character name "Donald John Trump" because they "found it offensive". Even cited the TOS and highlighted the "offensive" portion.

I'm guessing the decision was more by Zenimax than by Bethesda.

really? what makes you say that? where you there during the meetings? or just because "Bethesda will never do that, they care about Quake fans". i mean don't get me wrong i will love to know that this wasn't Bethesda idea. but i will like to see some proof first.

Oddly enough, the new Doom game reminds me of a Carmack Doom.

Of course all we have seen are trailers and controlled play, but I am excited for it, mainly because they come to Linux (LOL GNU+Linux). Not sure if this news is indicative of Zenimax as a whole, but I guess we will see as Doom nears release.

Carmack is and always was a tool maker, he didn't design games he just made the tools that enabled the designers wishes.

Ever since Id was bought out by Bethesda they have essentially been a shell of their glory days.

My friends and I used to obsess about Quake Con every year, but the first year Bethesda ran the show they stripped the fun right out of it and turned it into a sponsored corporate friendly event.

Skyrim and Fallout may be really excellent games but any enjoyment out of it is in spite of Bethesda.

But they have been replaced, we don't need anyone now, when I delete you maybe your games will stop crashing so bad. You'll make a new PR fuckup, that's what I'm counting on. Your someone else's problem, now I just want your shit gone.

now it costs money

Okay, maybe it's not too bad. It might make hackers think twice. Let's keep a positive outlook.

all player stats are gone.

That's a bummer, but they can achieve it all again over time. Still an odd choice to make on Bethesda's part.

Linux support has been removed

I hope Bethesda goes out of business. Fuck them and their casual fest that is TES and Fallout. Burn in hell.

For people looking for a Quake alternative, seriously try OpenArena. VERY good, and available natively on Linux.
