id was considered indie? Really?
Independent, yes. It did not have a publisher or a parent company. That is the definition of indie.

Yes yes this is all interesting and all.

id, though, doesn't mind being beholden to someone with deep pockets.
I found this sentence the most interesting. id is a proper noun that requires the first letter to be lowercase, so starting sentences with id means you have to start the sentence with the lower case letter.

This is much more important.
And that is exactly why I hate writing about id. I love the company, but it makes my grammar-sense seize up :p

Em....I don't get it. Was id Software in major financial trouble before the takeover? Beacuse if it wasn't, there is generally very little excuse to rush out a product.

But anyway, good for them I guess, although it doesn't change the fact that we are in sore need of another Commander Keen.

Still have my eyes glued on RAGE. I'm really, really looking forward to this one. The gameplay footage at e3 was just damn sexy.

We need more posts about RAGE, or I'm going to keep forgetting all about this amazing looking title.

I'd hate to for it to fly under my radar at launch.

Interesting fact:

The Zenimax CEO is married to Wonder Woman.

I dunno, I don't see what's so great about RAGE at this moment. I've seen some gameplay videos of it and it all looks very standard. Granted, the world looks pretty interesting, but I'm not really feelin' it, you know?

Whatever, RAGE is still a pretty large blip on my radar, so we'll see what happens with it.
