Ok, so we don’t get to have a peek at everything, but there’s still some great stuff there. And some stuff I won’t be able to understand. For those times, Bethesda will be streaming tournaments at Twitch.tv/QuakeCon.

Then again, I’d probably watch that and get confused by the speed of Quake again, just like every year…
