Quakecon press conference liveblog – today at 9.30pm BST

Thursday, 13th August 2009 14:53 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Quakecon kicks off in Texas today, and from the look of things this evening’s press conference should be a “doozy,” as our man on the ground, Nathan Grayson, is fond of saying.

Nathan will be liveblogging the event, which is looking likely to feature Rage, Bethesda titles and possibly a DOOM4 debut from 9.30pm BST tonight. That’s 3.30pm CDT (local), 4.30pm EST, 1.30pm PST and 10.30pm CET (Europe).

Don’t forget that IGN is streaming live video.

Get all the updates after the break. See you then!



  1. Hunam

    Will this include live Carmack?

    Hmm… if they’re showing Bethesda stuff I’d really like to get a look at Fallout: New Vegas.

  3. Hunam

    I think the only Bethesda stuff on show will be Brink.

    They normally all have a go. Carmack, Hollenshead, etc. Carmack’s going to have his own keynote after it, and we’ll be liveblogging that too.

  5. Hunam

    Will IGN have the video of the Carmack keynote too?

    I say what could happen will be:

    - Rage Demo
    - A couple of things on Quake (not full blown Quake 5 though, not till after Doom 4 anyways)
    - Possible teaser for Fallout: New Vegas (although thats actually doubtful as although Fallout is now a Bethesda IP, it’s not their game)
    - Brink demo
    - Doom 4 reveal

    EDIT: Forgot Brink.

  8. Johnny Cullen

    Hun – Na, just the press conference.

    Although there will be seveal livetexts covering Carmack’s keynote including Nathan’s.

    If you ever find you need someone spare to send on Carmack related jaunts, you know where to look.

    Stupid internet with no video’s of Carmack keynotes. It’s supposed to be the future already.

    I want there to be another Fallout spin off.

    Seriously…. I have suddenly become such a Fallout 3 whore.

    #11 5 years ago
  12. Patrick Garratt

    Sounds like there might be a wait.

    #12 5 years ago
  13. No_PUDding

    SO this is why Sony’s Press Conference was 3 hours long.

    RAGE looked awesome, I was impressed by the character movement, it looked soooooooo much more fluid than most games.

    #25 5 years ago
  26. No_PUDding

    Makes me wish it was a Fallout game instead.

    #26 5 years ago
  27. Patrick Garratt

    Pumped about Rage. That really did look cool.

    #27 5 years ago
  28. No_PUDding

    Oh. My. God. Kojima is currently creating a marinade, so when he eats his heart out, it’s a bit more flavourful.

    #30 5 years ago
  31. No_PUDding

    That was funny eh? :P



    #31 5 years ago

    #32 5 years ago
  33. freedoms_stain

    #33 5 years ago
  34. No_PUDding

    FUCK… This is why he gets paid so much as a development advisor.

    #34 5 years ago
  35. absolutezero

    #35 5 years ago
  36. No_PUDding

    Does he say ‘aye’ or ‘eye’ instead of ‘errr’?

    #41 5 years ago
  42. No_PUDding

    #42 5 years ago
  43. No_PUDding

    What’s the point in live blogging and then just saying you don’t understand something? You could at least through up some quotes for the people interested in it.

    #49 5 years ago
  50. Patrick Garratt

    That heavy dev stuff is indecipherable to a “layman,” tbh. We’d only get it wrong.

    #50 5 years ago
  51. absolutezero

    I love how he has’nt moved throughout the entire thing.

    #51 5 years ago
  52. absolutezero

    Pat has enough trouble with the layman stuff as it is, anything more complex and his head would pop.

    #52 5 years ago
  53. Patrick Garratt

    There’s a gobbledigook barrier. Once it goes up, it’s just syllable soup.

    #53 5 years ago
  54. absolutezero

    Is Carmack Canadian? That might explain the “eye” thing.


    #54 5 years ago
  55. Stephany Nunneley

    That’s what I was thinking Zero but I think he is Midwestern at least his accent sounds it.

    #55 5 years ago
  56. freedoms_stain

    Well I’ve bumped Carmack for Federer Vs Wawrinka at the Montreal Masters.

    I thank Carmack though, he was so boring I fired up Peggle Nights and managed to get one of the “complete in one ball” challenges.

    #56 5 years ago
  57. absolutezero
