Did you hear? Rage is coming out in just a few short months (Oct 4) and while that’s damn exciting, fans of id Software’s other series are clamoring for some news regarding Doom 4. Obviously, they don’t want to take any of the spotlight away from Rage, but we were supposed to hear something about Doom 4 at last year’s Quake Con, then we were told we might get some details at this year’s event, but Quake Con 2011 closed up yesterday and there was still no news.

If you happen to fall under the latter category I commend you sir (or ma’am), as you are a borderline superhero.

It’s almost gotten to the point where I need to hire someone to follow me with a buzzer, monitoring my level of alertness and… on-topic-ness. Of course, paying someone to do such a task would be a problem, and finding a talented soul with the patience to really follow through would most likely prove even more difficult. Wait, I just did it again. Just click the Read More button before my compulsive rambling gets the better of me. READ MORE
