QuakeCon 2012 schedule released

QuakeCon looms ever-nearer, the huge, free party held every year for fans of id Software. Gamers of all ages are getting ready to converge on Dallas, Texas in just over a week, and if you’re going to be there, we’ve got the list of just what you’ll be getting up to.

Across the three days, guests from Telltale Games, Double Fine, Arkane Studios, Insomniac and even Valve will be sharing the stage with representatives of id and Bethesda, talking about virtually all facets of the games industry.

(The other way of looking at it: If you’re not going to QuakeCon 2012, then we’ve got a schedule that may make you weep. It’s pretty spectacular.)
