Because he shouldn't have to. Just because one company puts out a game that has a word in the title, that doesn't mean no other game ever can have that word in the title. Imagine if that was how things really worked. So Bethesda is saying that Notch can't release a game with the word "Scrolls" in the title because Bethesda has a game called "The Elder Scrolls". Ok... So by that logic no game can have the word "The" in it either, that really puts a cramp on the possible game titles, no?
Wouldn't even matter since there'd be a beta and the actual release date would still be a few years off. IDGAF if they're "independent" or not either.

I don't see how any of that has anything remotely to do with my comment.

...and in the game where the weapons start to physically hurt the players suddenly notch has the ability to build minecraft structures in the quake arena.
You know, that could actually work. :D

Nicely put, NT. :) It's nearly always the big guys bullying the little guys with BS like this. :shadedshu

But not always though, witness Apple bullying Amazon over the "App Store" fiasco.

as has been pointed out, Notch is challenging Bethesda, who owns iD software, who are the best in their field. he might as well be challenging them to build something in Minecraft, the irony seems lost on people. he should've said "i challenge you to a best of 5 games in Starcraft II: WoL"
