that makes sense i can wait for Quake, i want them to make a quake game better than Quake 3. With games like Resistance 2 and KZ2 coming out, I rather see them go out and make doom 4. also it would buy me some time to get a new PC.

Booooo! Quake Arena is one of my all time favs, Id love a completely new vamped up edition to the classic series.

Ah well, looking forward to seeing some Doom info.

I hope they aren't shelving it due to Technical/Compression reasons of any sort.
