Just got Doom Eternal 50% off. Would it be advisable to get the dlc before they are fully enfolded by ms?

So many things pointing to potential new Quake news. Trying so hard not to get ahead of myself. But man, it's so hard, haha. 👀

Not so sure I trust MachineGames to make a new Quake title after Wolfenstein II. The map pack they made for the 20th was good - but whoever designed the levels for New Colossus... don't let them near Quake.

There will be a new Quake for sure. Spencer is a fan ;)

Microsoft can use quakecon as a pc gaming outlet/showcase if they wanted to..

slightly unrelated but I just finished episode 1 of og doom in gz3doom and although I had some bouts with motion sickness it was awesome, way more of an authentic doom experience than any of the next gen titles.

Wasn't there a leak that said Machinegun games and iD are making a new quake that will have both single and multiplayer?
