I still think they could have labeled Doom 3 as "Quake 4", changed a few weapons to look more high tech and no one would have noticed

Still, this is great news. Quake 2 was a great game, as was Quake 1... cant wait for the next one

I dont really count Quake 3... that should have been called "ID Arena"... I mean, it had a character called "Doom" that was the Doom Marine... what the hell did that have to do with Quake?

The only thing UT had going for it was Glide support to keep the 3dfx fanboyz happy. I enjoyed both games, but from a technical standpoint, Q3 was superior in every way.

Quake 3 was purely superior. I loved UT, but now it's completely obsolete. Quake 3 is still the undisputed king of deathmatch.
