Are giantbomb videos running like crap for anyone else today? It won't even stream properly. I thought it was a problem with my internet connection, but everything else is running fine for me.

John fucking Carmack!!!!

For a guy now in his 40's John looks really young.

Great interview with alot of really good info. He practically interviews himself, and that is not a bad thing in this case at all.

Posted by Belgo

Holy crap, John Carmack loves to talk 

Edited by nyv

He's like a professional singer - no need for breath breakes. My head hurts... 
 
I agree though. The graphics are good enough already. Good that someone so important for gaming industry as he is, is taking a new approach.

Is it just me or are there some similarities in the appearances of John Carmack and Brad Shoemaker? Might just be me.

Dude is smart.

Has anyone ever mentioned that Brad looks a lot like John Carmack?  Granted, with glasses and his face is a touch thinner...but I see some resemblance.

great video!

Posted by Kovski

Carmack must be every interviewers dream, you ask a question and he answers 10. Carmack has a design philosophy to graphic engines that perhaps may not reflect in their games, but that I really admire and I hope that the future bodes well for the man! 
 
Also: Never realised that Pat had elven ears!

I can listen to that guy all day.

Laying it down, Carmack style.

Patrick Klepek, more than subliminally valuable.

Wow. He really will talk for days, I would love to see Jeff do an hour long interview ala Ken Levine. That would be super interesting.

Edited by Altersparck

I wish I sounded as smart as John Carmack. My computer science courses would've been a lot easier. :(

Am I the only person who doesn't think 60FPS is the best thing ever? For fighters or racing games I think it makes sense, but otherwise I prefer the more film-like look that 30FPS gives. 60 frames per second just looks too smooth, like a home video when compared to a movie.

Edited by Slaker117

Great interview, even if it was just Carmack talking with himself. Love listening to the man speak, he is clearly a very smart dude.
 
I also like that it was barely about Rage. Yay for going off message, it makes thing actually interesting.

Posted by OsheaDiesStupid

John carmack is a God and Rage will be the a strong GOTY candidate. Can't wait for Doom 4 

Posted by Cheesebob

John Carmack...possibly the most well respected gaming developer in the biz. Along with Will Wright and Sid Mieir.

Posted by VilhelmNielsen

Carmack's smart. Really, insanely smart!

Posted by HelicopterSpy

What a totally cool, really smart guy. I dunno why but I wasn't really expecting that.

Posted by faustyn

YEAH! John is awesome.

John Carmack makes Brad's sideburns quiver.

I just watched this John Carmack interview on there and it's as entertaining as always to see him go like a madman on there. I just finished reading Masters of Doom recently on there so that deepened my respect for this guy by a lot on there. His passion for his work shows on there and one day I imagine him doing something extremely innovative not only for gaming but for the computing world in general on there.

Posted by Cheesebob

I wish the interview was longer.

Posted by daviddoel

Great interview but next time more PC questions please! It's John Carmack! He always has something interesting to say about PC gaming.

Posted by waypoetic

Sorry Patrick Klepeck, your fanboyism and love for the Nintendo brand will soon take it's toll. 

Posted by enune77

Whats the deal with the video? It plays half way then stops! :(

Posted by AuthenticM

I'm surprised Brad wasn't the one interviewing.
