Our Take
Id's footprint on the contemporary gaming landscape may be smaller than it used to be, but its QuakeCon festival remains one of the best LAN events around. Even though id doesn't have anything to show at its own party, Bethesda is doing its best to keep the non-LAN portions of the show relevant.
