I am back, and I am excited.

Marriage has been wonderful so far, and nobody sabotaged my computer while I was gone.

The only negative thing going on at this moment is the Scrolls trademark lawsuit nonsense, and I think I came up with the perfect solution:

Remember that scene in Game of Thrones where Tyrion chose a trial by battle in the Eyrie? Well, let's do that instead!
I challenge Bethesda to a game of Quake 3. Three of our best warriors against three of your best warriors. We select one level, you select the other, we randomize the order. 20 minute matches, highest total frag count per team across both levels wins.

If we win, you drop the lawsuit.

If you win, we will change the name of Scrolls to something you're fine with.

Regardless of the outcome, we could still have a small text somewhere saying our game is not related to your game series in any way, if you wish.

I am serious, by the way.

actually i think there is a better way. one that is both enjoyable and competitive. dont play quake three play Battlefield BC 2. Both notch and Bethesda create a team of gamers who actually THINK when playing a war game and use teamwork to win. and you settle it off in the only game close enough to a war simulator than ARMA2. think about it. Battlefield requires teamwork to win as well as common sense and thought of the situation. it will show who is better as well as which company doesnt work well together. its perfect!

How about tell Bethesda to go back to their roots, make games because they love making them, and not because they want money. If they love making (good) games, and people pay for them, why do they want more?

I like the irony. Game developers settling their disputes in-game. But I doubt this will turn out with a result.

This would be pretty good publicity for both companies, actually.
