How many companies are there that even make games anymore? It seems like they're all being bought up by these mega-gaming corporations that lose money like crazy (EA,BLIZ/ACT). I'm amazed that WOW makes $150,000,000 a month and they're still losing money. The mega-size corporate game developer is a failing idea, fleecing consumers of money on every front possible and still managing to lose money.

The only thing I want Bethesda doing is pumping out Elder Scrolls and Fallouts every year like Activision does with Call of Duty!

Ok, no... that would be horrible, but I don't want them working on games that are not Fallout or Elder Scrolls. They have two amazing franchises and here they're just letting them sit there.

anyone know if rage or doom4 will support hardware tessellation? Always figured doom would be the ideal title for it.

I doubt hw tesselation will be of importance by the time rage or doom 4 get out. id tends to be a technological trend setter when it comes to games, even though young gamers don't know that. I'm actually interested to see megatextures at work.

11.5 million active accounts as of a few months ago. It was pretty highly publicized.

Why would anyone have fears with the purchase? Zenimax/Bethesda is one of the few great companies out there. Their DRM is nearly non-existent and as a result they have great sales. To me it honestly seemed like a perfect fit, both are creative and focus on the game rather than DRM. It's just a win/win/win all around. id gets financial backing, Zenimax gets id's technology and gamers benefit from stellar games.

Any other company and I would be worried. Zenimax/Bethesda buying iD? I approve.

Right now ZeniMax has the 3 greatest games in production which is kind of sad that other companies can't step up their game.

I am talking about RAGE, Fallout: Las Vegas, and Brink.

I'm 18, so not sure if you can't that as young, but id has been using Megatextures since Quake 4, I believe. Definitely in id Tech 4 at the very least.

Soo...
