What's Rocket Arena 3?
175
12.5%

Spyke: I had that bad boy downloaded 15 minutes before it was released! Other than the free beer and crystal meth, there are perks to working at PQ.
Pappy-R: How did 175 people that see the PQ frontpage to get to the Poll and NOT know what RA3 is? I think I made a post or two on it.
Hellchick: Spyke gets free beer? Can we expense that?

Check my answer in the last question - I haven't downloaded it, chuckleheads.

Spyke: Hands down, the best mod I've ever played. Absolutely outstanding, with illegal amounts of fun.
Pappy-R: Very, very well done. I love the maps, and I really am impressed with the user interface, including the MP3 player. Now I
can play Lisa Loeb while I frag!
Hellchick: After playing a few rounds, I immediately went into an epileptic-like seizure I was so happy about it.


If you've played it, what's the best part of the mod?

The maps! Those custom maps really make the mod sweet.

The music! How many mods can say they have a custom-made soundtrack?

The arena admin system - so many options, so much drool.

I think it all adds up to make a great mod.

Dammit, quit with the RA3 questions, I haven't played the damn thing!
654
47%

Spyke: Everything! The UI rules, gameplay is fast and furious, and the maps are beautiful.
Pappy-R: The part where I win is the best part. Seldom happens in RA3, but when it does...whOOp!
Hellchick: Okay, okay, we'll stop with the RA3 questions already. Geesh. High-speed access needs to get cheap, fast.

Spyke: Nope. I play in my spare time. I'm too busy taking over the world to have Quake dictate my life.
Pappy-R: To actually play I either grab a few moments when I can, or actually have to schedule time.
Hellchick: Yeah - they're called the Arcade challenges. Check it, bitches - I get PAID to play Quake twice a week. Heh heh heh.

 


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.
