One Week 'Til QuakeConS

It's a week until QuakeCon, one week until John Carmack's keynote (which turned into a three-hour liveblog on an iPhone by me last year), one week until... Doom 4?

I'll be out in Texas next week to give Kotaku readers full coverage of the big event. Plus, I'm hosting a panel!

This panel:

‘Building Immersive Worlds and Stories' Panel
August 13, 1:00pm in the Cortez Room
Chris Rhinehart from Human Head
Emil Pagliarulo from Bethesda Game Studios
Harvey Smith, Arkane Studios
Raphael Colantonio, Arkane Studios

Fallout: New Vegas coverage? Brink coverage? Hunted coverage? Bank on it.

And, id chief Todd Hollenshead wasn't kidding last year at QuakeCon '09 when he said they'd talk about Doom "next year," right? 2010 is next year, Todd. id has been working on the game since 2008.

Expect live coverage of QuakeCon 2010 kicking off a week from today.
