Quake Champions Adding Bots and More Gore

A new video about Quake Champions talks with id Software technical director John Dean about plans to add bots to Quake Champions (thanks PCGamesN). John discusses what these will add to the multiplayer shooter, saying they will be transparent to users, who should not be able to identify them as AI. He discusses the kind of abilities they will display, and how this will scale down for games at lower difficulty levels. For more on the game, there is also this tweet from Quake Champions with a video showing off a new gore system, as they further refine the ability to return your opponents into their component parts.

Out of the Blue

I actually put a little drinko in our Cinco de Mayo last night when we went out to dinner where I ordered a margarita. We weren't at a Mexican place, so maybe it was appropriate that it seemed like I got an especially gringo version of the cocktail. I'm pretty sure they used Rose's Lime Juice in making this, which, in spite of the name, does not taste very much like actual lime juice. My margarita was more of a gimlet in the end, but at least my heart was in the right place.
