Minecraft's Notch Challenges Bethesda To A Quake 3 Duel Over When last we heard of the conflict between Minecraft creator Notch's company Mojang and Bethesda, Notch had challenged Bethesda to a friendly game of Quake 3 to settle the matter of whether his company could call their upcoming game "Scrolls."  Apparently, Bethesda does not feel this is an adequate solution to the problem... or they're afraid they'll get owned.  The case is going to court. 

According to a succinct tweet from Notch:

"The Scrolls case is going to court! Weee! :D"

Apparently, Quake 3 matches are not recognized as legally binding method of dispute resolution by the United States.

As this incredibly important case progresses, we'll keep you filled in on all the details, but ultimately, I think Bethesda has a point. If there's an indie game called "Scrolls," I'd never be able to tell it from Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. I was reading the Dead Sea Scrolls for weeks before I realized I wasn't playing a Bethesda RPG, and I every time I use my mouse's scroll wheel anI think I'm deep in a dungeon in Tamriel.
