14.7%

Hellchick: Ha ha! Apparently 688 people are plagued with significant others who obviously have no appreciation for the fine art of gaming. It's all about quality time, people, so get her (or him) playing.
Pappy-R: From signifigant other; "Did you pay Cable?"
Spyke: My brother saying "It's my turn now!". Ungrateful little bastard..
shaithis: Look... alls I'm saying is that anyone who lets gaming get in between them and a little nookie deserves whatever problems they get.
Fargo: I hate when I'm gaming at work and someone reminds me "You're not wearing pants."
Mynx: Fargo hates it, everyone else likes it. Really really likes it.


Will you be going to QuakeCon this year?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
Hell yeah! I've got my entire calendar planned around August 3-6 already.
82
4.2%
I might. Depends on if they have Rodeo Arena again this year.
47
2.4%
I hadn't really thought about it yet.
219
11.3%
No, I can't afford the travel.
953
49.3%
No, because until they combine the rodeo with a railgun, I have no interest.
264
13.6%
What's QuakeCon?
368
19%

Hellchick: I'm required by my job, so yeah. But I can't wait to go, it'll be my first. If any of you reading this see me, come up and say hi.
Pappy-R: Can I just get through this weekend before deciding? Ugh..
Spyke: Can't afford it. Plus I'm underage, and could be taken advantage of by the deviant element that always seems to show up there.
shaithis: No, I have a wedding to attend. Hellchick requested that I ask my younger brother to change the date, but he was unreceptive to the idea. Also, his fiance threatened to tear my arms off.
Hellchick: I think it's worth it.
Fargo: I'm planning on stalking HellChick. WHO'S WITH ME!?
Mynx: I feel compelled to boycott nerd conventions.


If heaven were a Quake game, which one would it be?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
Quake 1. Dark, gothic, with Satanic overtones...oh wait, you said HEAVEN...
280
14.5%
Quake 2. I'm pretty sure St. Peter looks a lot like a Strogg.
229
11.8%
Quake III Arena. One big arena where everyone has to battle it out equally for domination. At the end, you have to kick God's ass on q3tourney6.
772
40%
A mission pack. After all, the afterlife is sort of an add-on anyway.
649
33.6%

Hellchick: I'm glad to see that 772 people are going to Hell with me for choosing the answer that included the phrase "kick God's ass".
Pappy-R: Quake III...heaven just has to have 32 bit colour.
Spyke: Q3A! Heaven has shaders, I'm sure of it.
shaithis: I'd have to go with Quake3, not because I think it's the best of the three games (Quake1 baby), but because I could constantly be making new 24bit textures to tile the walls with.
Fargo: Heaven is Canalzone for Quake I TeamFortress. God and I would camp command point 4 - the warehouse - together.
Mynx: Paul Steed.

Have you ever spent time running around an empty level?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
Yes, I need to know where the health is.
529
27.4%
Yes, I wanna not back into corners during a fight.
714
36.9%
Only to see where Rocket jumps are.
329
17%
No, I get too lonely.
358
18.5%

Hellchick: Doc walked up behind me the other day and watched me running around a level before a 1 on 1 match. He said, "You DO know you're in an empty map, right?" So to make a short story long, yeah, I do that.
Pappy-R: Enitre nights. Sad but true.
Spyke: For sure I do! I run through every map I download before I play it.. I must know where everything is.
shaithis: I do that often, just to check out the map. Half the time I don't ever end up playing a real game on it.
Fargo: Last night, in fact. I downloaded the top ten LVL deathmatch maps and was admiring the architecture. Then Doc and BenT joined the server with me and my appreciation of the fine architecture didn't win me any but one of the four games we played. Architecture sucks.
Mynx: I don't always like knowing what lurks around the corner. Call me masochistic.


In a LAN setup between the PQ staff, who would win a 1 vs 1 Tourney?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
Hellchick, the goddess of grenades.
828
43.4%
Spyke, shooting from the hip.
166
8.7%
Lee'Mon's well-laid plans.
289
15.1%
Pappy-R and the flick rail.
624
32.7%

Hellchick: Awww yeah! I've got 43.3% of the PQ lovin'. Eat that.
Pappy-R: Me! I would setup the LAN, and make it lag anyone who starts winning.
Spyke: Only 8.7%? That shows how misguided you people are. I've pw33n3d everybody else before, and am not afraid to do it again! I'm not kidding! Seriously!
shaithis: crt. Oh, the PQ staff? Uhm... I don't have a damn idea.
Fargo: Spyke would get my vote, being the staff memeber who most often uses the word "pw33n3d" conversationally.
Mynx: That's right, kiss up to the only girl!


How many game shortcuts are on your desktop?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
3 or less: Just the ones I play most often.
964
50.7%
3 - 10: I like having them right at my fingertips.
578
30.4%
10 - 20: It's been a while since I've used the start menu.
181
9.5%
20+: You can't see my wallpaper through the icons, baby!
175
9.2%

Hellchick: I've got six, and three of them are Quake, Quake 2, and Quake III Arena. The rest are silly games like Counterstrike that I play just to be social with the rest of GameSpy.
Pappy-R: 17..yes, you heard me!
Spyke: Q3A, GameSpy (it counts), and NHL 2000. That's all I need. And NHL 2000 isn't mine.
shaithis: I keep three shortcuts on my desktop: Computer, Network, Trash (err... excuse me, 'recycle bin'). That's it. Everything else is all about the quicklaunch bar. Why put icons on a desktop that's covered by a fullscreen photoshop window 90% of the time?
Fargo: I have about 6 that get desktop lovin'. You've got your Quake 3's and your Counterstrikes and your Rogue Spears, as well as some Age of Wonders goodness (I play games across the board...)
Mynx: Ew, desktop shortcuts are for weenies.

 


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.
Lee'Mon writes articles and editorials for PQ, which means he's really into finding things to complain about.
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.
Mynx is our resident advice expert, knowledgeable about all sorts of topics that the rest of us are just too scared to touch.
Tetsuo performs miracles that mere mortals cannot understand as part of the tech team at GameSpy. He also really likes bacon. Even more than Hellchick.
Fargo has been around since the beginning of PQ. He's been known to camp everything, including the poll.
