It seems those heebie-jeebies are starting to subside though, as a different life crisis has come to the forefront: "And about now I'm officially over being upset about Facebook buying Oculus," Persson recently tweeted. "I'm upset about there being a hole in my favorite sock instead."
John Carmack, co-creator of Doom, Oculus convert and center of a legal battle with former employer ZeniMax, responded enthusiastically. "Say the word, ship the source, and i'll make sure It runs well on you-know-what," he wrote. Sounds nice, but we're not sure how Carmack would make Persson's sock run well on ... oh. Ohhhh.
Nevermind, we just got it. We see what you did there, John.
