Persson Challenges Bethesda To Quake III

News Bethesda

Usually when there is a trademark dispute, the two parties go to court and a judge determines the outcome. That will be no exception when it comes to Bethesda and the creator of Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson. They are currently embroiled over the use of the word “Scrolls” in a game being developed my Mojang Studios, which was founded by Persson. However, Persson believes that there should be another way to settle it.

A Quake III deathmatch.

“I am serious, by the way,” the Minecraft creator said by way of coda.

The premise is simple. Persson suggested that three players represent both side in a 20 minute deathmatch over two levels, both chosen by the two parties. If Mojang is victorious, then Bethesda drops the lawsuit and it would send a message to them that trying to own a word is not a good idea. It Bethesda prevails, then the game “Scrolls” will be renamed into “something you’re [Bethesda] fine with.”

It is an interesting idea, but is it the right idea? Shout out below, we would like to know the opinion of our audience.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
