        Nick Breckon will bust in with a saxophone, and he will crush Kenny G's world record for the longest sustained note.

        I don't know, he's pretty good. Even if he was running the show, it doesn't seem like something he'd do.

        The last Qcon I went to was when they were showing off the Doom 3 walk through in that little mini theater thing where the shotgun sound was so loud it felt like your ear drum would burst. It'll be kind of cool to go back and see them previewing the same fucking game that they did a decade ago.
