This is insane, absolutely insane, this came right out of nowhere and from the looks of it, Bethesda is on to something.

Definately didn't see this one coming, but I am not surprised. I had no idea this was going to happen, just, I don't see why it couldn't. Maybe someday they will combine games.

Quakeenstine Rage of Doom: the Fallout of Oblivion.

Calling it now, there will be Imperial guards in Rage. "Stop right there, criminal scum!"

Wow, maybe the next Fallout will actually be an FPS instead of pretending to be one, rendering me unable to cope with it.

It's like ZeniMax is reading my mind! the RPG and the FPS are my two most favorite genres.  Also I think a Bethesda and id collaboration game would be mind blowing.

First I learn today that EA is merging Bioware and Mythic. Now I learn that Zenimax has purchased Id Software. How much crazier can this get???

It's been five years since their last game, and that game came out right around the time Half-Life 2 did, so... id is completely irrelevant now. And apparently starving for cash.

I guess this gives the company more under its belt than just Fallout and Elder Scrolls.
