I was really disappointed I couldn't make it to Quake-Con -- not because of the games (although Dishonored looks pretty impressive) but because John Carmack's keynotes are said to be pretty incredible, and this year's was no exception. John Carmack talked for three hours about practically everything, including the issues with RAGE and his thoughts on PC gaming, and from all accounts the audience just sort of sat there enthralled. Now -- so can you!
Or you can pause it, or you can fast forward the bits you don't understand (if you're like me there will be plenty) or you can save it for later. Regardless -- John Carmack's three hour keynote is available and you can watch it.
