Cliff Bleszinski (Epic Games): “Uh did we just have an earthquake?” and “I thought I left this crap behind when I got my ass out of California. #earthquake”

Michael Zenke (Sony Online Entertainment): “Holy cats I’m on the right coast for like four days and I bring an earthquake! #earthquake That was weird.”

Chris Kohler (Wired Magazine): “Congratulations, East Coast! Now you know what it feels like!”

Gary Whitta (PC Gamer): “To you east coasters, this 5.8 earthquake was the greatest day of your lives. To those of us here in SF, it was Tuesday.”

Jason Schreier (Wired Magazine): “Bethesda now suing East Coast Earthquake for use of the word ‘Quake.’” and “I guess now NYC gets earthquakes. As if I needed another reason not to play Kinect.”
