Have you ever been to a QuakeCon?

Answer Votes

One, and I'm dying to go back!

1.1%
Been to one? I've been to ALL of them, baby.

0.1%
I've been to a couple of them.

0.7%
No, I've never been to one, and my life is meaningless until I do.

No, and I don't really care about going to one.

What's a QuakeCon?
193
11.4%

Mynx: I was going to go to the first QuakeCon, '96, back when it was still #quakecon. Mental and I decided to meet in person instead. Restored Victorian mansion Bed and Breakfasts in the mountains with jacuzzi bathtubs... Much more fun than qcon. MUCH. So much.
Pappy-R: I hate Hellchick's questions!
Spyke: Mine would be that "life is meaningless" answer. Next year for sure!
Lee'Mon: It was depressing, but with my current finances, it was two out of three: Going to E3, building my new computer (a.k.a. "The Rig",) and going to QuakeCon. I hate to say it, but QuakeCon places third in that case.
L33t'M0n: I wanted to, but I went to EvilCloneCon instead.
Hellchick: I'd never been to one before this one. My life is now complete.


Are you going to QuakeCon 2000?

Yes! Must...have...QuakeCon...

No, I missed the registration deadline!
459
27.4%
No, I didn't want to go.
885
52.9%
Sure, I'm not registered, but slip the registration attendants a little of that sweet lovin' and...
282
16.8%

Mynx: Nah. Just had a baby. Besides, nobody would play, just stand in a circle around me and wait for me to breastfeed.
Pappy-R: More hate right here.
Spyke: Yeah, I'll go now, after it's over!
Lee'Mon: No... [walks off grumbling]
L33t'M0n: I'm there right now. It's overrated.
Hellchick: I went. It rocked.


Do you rocket jump when you play?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
Of course - rocket jumping is a complete part of my nutritional breakfast.
530
31.7%
Sometimes - depends on the map.
848
50.7%
No - I just end up with negative frags that way.
111
6.6%
No, I've never really found a need to.
166
9.9%
No - I have no idea what a rocket jump even is.
16
0.9%

Mynx: Nah. Not much of a rocket ho.
Pappy-R: Yes, except in Q3 Excessive Joust. Flap you bastards, FLAP!
Spyke: Depends; in Quake 2, hell yes; in Q3A, I can usually get by without it.
Lee'Mon: One of my favorite moves is to rocket-jumppad-jump and then spray rockets all over my surprised rival.
L33t'M0n: I prefer to run up to my opponent, RJ over them, and plug a rocket into their back before they know what's happening.
Hellchick: I use it a lot in Rocket Arena (duh), but otherwise it's really map-dependent. I haven't refined my rocket jumping skills enough to guarantee that I won't plant one in my own face when I do it.


How much time do you spend playing Quake when compared to other games?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
There's games other than Quake?
345
20.5%
I have other games, but I spend the most time playing Quake.
492
29.3%
It's about 50/50.
322
19.2%
These days, I play other games more than Quake.
464
27.6%
I don't play Quake. Wait, what site is this again?
54
3.2%

Mynx: There is no other game.
Pappy-R: I do play other games, but the comparison in time isn't worth figuring out.
Spyke: I've been playing emulated games a lot lately, so Quake has had about 75% of my playing time. I'm sorry, and it won't happen again.
Lee'Mon: Diablo II has been a mass consumer of my time, just because The Rig isn't up to playing OpenGL games yet. Soon, my pretties, soon...
L33t'M0n: Quake Slide is my flava of the month. Can't wait for SOMEONE to finish up their Q3A version...
Hellchick: Any answer I give is colored by the fact that I get PAID to play a lot of Quake III Arena. But even if I didn't, I guarantee it would take up at least 75% of my game time.


What skill level do you think you are?

Answer Votes

You, over there - owned! You in the corner? Owned! Everyone over there - OWNED!

I'm pretty good, but I'm not the best.
766
45.8%
I'm about average.
458
27.4%
I'm not a total llama, but I could use some work.
127
7.6%
I'm a total llama.
37
2.2%

Mynx: I make grown men cry like little girls. Oh wait.. we're talking about game skill.. eh, I'm okay.
Pappy-R: Better than some, and cannon fodder to many. On a good day, you'll at least know you were in a fight. All hail vague answers!
Spyke: I make little girls cry.
Lee'Mon: I scored a frag on Cornelia. What's that worth, besides the T-shirt I got out of it?
L33t'M0n: I would like to score a frag on Cornelia. What's that worth?
Hellchick: I'm better than average, I think, but that's about it. And for the record, I once scored THREE frags - count 'em, THREE! - on Kornelia. But it was on the map she hates.


What do you think of Target Quake?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
It rocks! It's like Sonic the Hedgehog...but with, umm, Klesk.

10.5%
It's okay...it's kind of a cool mod.
174

It sucks - if I wanted to play a sidescroller, I'd get a console.
115
6.9%
I haven't played it yet, so I can't answer.
1189
71.9%

Mynx: Boobies.
Pappy-R: Interesting and cool for a change of pace, but I do like boobies better.
Spyke: It rules!
Lee'Mon: Makes me nostalgic for Abuse.
L33t'M0n: Ain't nothing compared to boobies.
Hellchick: I haven't played it yet - every day I say, "I've got to play Target Quake today" and something else comes up. I've got to play Target Quake today.
