How do they manage to keep that lava hot? (submitted by Zephro)

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
The lava pits lead deep into the earth's core, and are powered by the forces of radioactive decay that heat our very planet.
172
7.6%
It's Acme Magical Ever-Hot Lava (TM).
299
13.3%
It's a flaw in John Carmack's physics code...the lava was supposed to harden over time, but it got commented out by mistake.
441
19.6%
It's kept warm by the rotting process of all the bodies in it.
209
9.3%
Bob the Janitor changes it while the servers are empty and all the Quakers are in bed.
1126
50.1%

shaithis: You can grenade jump out of the lava really easily if you're playing Excessive.
Lee'Mon: It's actually Lee'Mon's Patented Seven-Alarm Chili. Don't touch it with any body parts that have nerve endings.
Pappy-R:
I wish we had one of them fancy "book learnin' people" around here to explain it. Like a Astro Phsysicamalogist er somethin'.
Hellchick: Well, you see, it all has to do with the gluons, the pions, the fermions, and a little man with magical powers.
Fragmaster:
It's Janitor Bob, dammit.
Fargo: That's right, like Dunkin Doughnuts, our Lava is made fresh daily.
Spyke: They use Spyke's Magic Lava Pump. Pumps lava, water, Jell-O, and has 3 different speeds!


What's your opinion on the Q3A BFG? (submitted by Blurpy the RABID!!!)

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
The increased rate of fire rulz!!! Now I can deal out a lot more death than the snail-like bastard siblings that are the BFG 9000 and 10,000!
438
19.5%
It's okay. It's not really gaining anything or losing anything with the change in rate of fire and reduced amount of damage inflicted.
325
14.5%
It's no BFG!!! A BFG fires off the big green ball of DEATH! Q3A's "bfg" is nothing but a deformed egg that poops green! I don't eat green eggs and ham! To HELL with it!
780
34.8%
What's BFG stand for?
59
2.6%
All BFGs are the tools of lame-ass llamas. REAL players don't use BFGs.
633
28.3%

Fragmaster: I think it's a wife-beater.
Fargo: Oh sure, it's a powerful weapon. But I know the BFG. I've worked with the BFG. And you, sir, are no BFG.
shaithis: The BFG in Excessive is awesome, if you've got decent sniping skills.
Pappy-R: I now can stir my coffee with the BFG. Very handy.
Hellchick: I love the new BFG, even if its effect isn't as impressive as Quake 2's.
Lee'Mon: I think it's the only way spyke could ever frag me.
Spyke: I think it's one more tool I don't need to use to frag Lee'Mon. I hate it. It disrupts gameflow. And it doesn't have the cool giant green glow anymore!


How do you feel about the autodownload feature in the latest point release?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
I love it! I've been waiting for them to put it in.
674
30.5%
It's okay - I can live without it.
830
37.6%
It sucks! Half the time I could be playing, but instead I'm waiting to download some a bunch of pointless skins and models!
332
15%
I'd like it for things like models and skins, but not maps because they're just too big to wait for the download.
367
16.6%

Lee'Mon: Please wait... downloading SuckySkins.pk3... 0.01KB/s (1%)...
Pappy-R: I ended up turning it off in Q2, so no biggie here either.
Hellchick: I like it, even though I've been soured by the word "download" ever since seeing that recent X-Files episode.
Fragmaster: It should also autodownload dirty pictures.
Fargo: Every game needs auto-download. Period.
shaithis: I don't need it. Our Excessive server doesn't currently run custom maps.

Spyke: There's autodownloading in Q3A now? I hadn't noticed. Most servers still run the standard maps, and I force models, so I could give 2 poops about skins.


Which browser are you using?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
The in-game browser. Is there another one?
188
8.5%
The in-game browser because I prefer it
462
21%
ArenaSpy
309
14.1%
GameSpy 3D
785
35.8%
I don't really use the browser, I just enter the IP directly or I play on a LAN.
447
20.4%

Fargo: I use Internet Explorer. Oh wait. Could you repeat the question?
shaithis: I must admit to using id's in-game browser, but that's only because I only play on one server (you guessed it: Excessive), and it's on our LAN.
Pappy-R: GameSpy 3D! There is none better. Who da pimp daddy now?
Hellchick: I use Bob's Browser. It comes with a free package of Canadian bacon. And now if you'll excuse me, I feel this odd urge to play some Excessive...
Fragmaster: Netscape, it's the best. Oh wait...
Lee'Mon: GameSpy, in case I get the urge to quit and play Q2.
Spyke: GameSpy sometimes, but the in-game browser ever since ArenaSpy stopped working with the point release. Yes, I know I'm lazy.


Who are these people anyway?

Hellchick is the PQ Site Director, or at least has convinced her friends that she is.
Pappy-R is PQ's News Jockey and Part-time Table Dancer.
Spyke does the PQ in Review, the PQ Mailbag, and your girlfriend. He's Excessive.
Lee'Mon writes articles and editorials for PQ, which means he's really into finding things to complain about.
Fargo was one of the guys responsible for PlanetQuake's inception. Thankfully, he only got a restraining order. Now he helps run GameSpy.com.
shaithis is a former PQ Site Director who now spends his days running GameSpy.com and sharpening the spikes on the top of his cubicle. You think we're kidding.
Fragmaster also used to run PQ, and now manages ClassicGaming.com and the console section of the GameSpy network. He also enjoys the occasional potted tuna.
