Which game would you rather see rebuilt with the Q3A engine? [Submitted by Yetiman]

Answer Votes
Percentage
Wolfenstein 3-D; 3D Nazi gibs!
291
24.2%
Doom; Hell with shaders!
456
38%
Commander Keen; Just because everyone loves it.
186
15.5%
Frogger; 3D Frog gibs!
68
5.6%
Half-Life; Mmm.. curved surfaces.
197
16.4%

Mynx: Doom, only because I just love Doom. I do I do. Doom makes me oh so happy, like fluffly clouds and flowers.
Spyke: Half-Life would be bloody swank, but I'd have to say Commander Keen. That would make my life.
Hellchick: I have to go with Wolfenstein. Return to Castle Wolfenstein is looking mighty sweet.
Lee'Mon: Hmm... Torn between two worlds; Wolf or Doom. Which to choose?
L33t'M0n: Simple; Commander Keen. Kids in football helmets just kick total ass.
shaithis: Fallout. Yes, I know that's not one of the choices, but think how cool an Isometric RPG would be using the glory of the Quake3 engine.

How many people do you like to play CTF with? [Submitted by Yetiman]

Answer Votes
Percentage
1-4, just enough to work.
71
5.9%
5-10, enough to play different roles.
562
47.1%
11-15, make it real bloody!
271
22.7%
16-32, I'm insane.
164
13.7%
All by myself! I'm antisocial.
123
10.3%

Mynx: 500+ people can't be wrong.
Spyke: I don't like to play CTF. I must complain to whoever does the Poll. Oh, wait, that's me!
Hellchick: I like to be a one man, kamikaze berserking flag-capturing machine. Sure, I might not score all that much, but it's a hell of a lot more fun.
Lee'Mon: The more insanity, the better.
L33t'M0n: Only if Team Damage is turned on. I don't play well with others.
shaithis: I don't play CTF. But as far as Quake3Fortress goes, it depends on the map. Still, a general "good" number is 12-14 players.

What kind of weapons would you like to see in the new Doom game? [Submitted by Phoenix}

Answer Votes
Percentage
All new, I'm bored with the railgun already!
233
19.5%
Some cool otherworldly type stuff, I've always wanted to throw fireballs!
187
15.7%
The classics, baby! I want my super spam plasma gun and flash BFG!
283
23.8%
Kind of a mix of everything so far. I want to rail a cyberdemon!
486
40.8%

Mynx: No no no. No new weapons. Aiie. Donut mess with perfection.
Spyke: A yo-yo, paper airplanes, a laser pointer, and yarn. That would do it.
Hellchick: Something I've never seen before that would make me say, "wow! I never thought of THAT before!" Which is why I can't say exactly what it would be, because I haven't thought of it. DUH.
Lee'Mon: Throw in some classics, add a few new (demonic?) weapons this time around, and you're talking fun.
shaithis: Anything as long as they're not "realistic". You don't go to Hell with realistic weapons. You go with like... guns that shoot poisonous snakes that explode after gnawing on something for awhile.
L33t'M0n: I want all snot and fart weapons. I gotta be me.

The Quake/Gaming community slows down during the summer months. What are you doing during this time? [Submitted by hostile]

Answer Votes
Percentage
Hunting beach bunnies / hunks.
154
12.9%
Using it as quiet time for introspection.
100
8.4%
Looting and stealing.
223
18.8%
3 month road trip to nowhere.
82
6.9%
Quaking, dammit! Summer don't slow me down one bit!
626
52.8%

Mynx: Praying for fall. I loathe the heat. Heat makes me cranky. A cranky Mynx is NO fun to be around.
Spyke: I'm still having a tough time finding these beach bunnies. Could it be that I'm land-locked?
Hellchick: My life is Quake. What is this slow down thing of which you speak?
Lee'Mon: I'm making the mods you'll be playing in the fall.
L33t'M0n: Oh, the usual... plotting bloody revenge on my enemies...
shaithis: I Live near LA, so I'm probably supposed to say "looting and stealing", since that's the year-round passtime.

Would you rather have fewer, high quality Q3A mod releases, or more frequent, buggier releases? [Retro poll from April 7th, 1998]

Answer Votes
Percentage
More frequent releases. I don't want to wait months!
72
6%
Fewer, high quality releases.
611
51.4%
Depends on the mod.
334
28.1%
Don't care.
171
14.3%

Mynx: Bacon. (HA!!)
Spyke: I can't say right now, because there's a secret project going on in regards to this. So I'll cop out and say "Depends on the mod".
Hellchick: Fewer, high quality releases. I might be on a fast connection, but there's nothing more frustrating than bugs ruining your fun.
Lee'Mon: Why do I smell a Gauntlet?
L33t'M0n: I want frequent, high quality releases, DAMMIT!
shaithis: More. More more more. I want a couple of High Quality releases to dedicate most of my time to, and then a whole slew of "look, I replaced the rocket launcher with a gun that shoots snakes that explode after they gnaw on something for awhile" mods.

 


Who are these people anyway?


Pappy-R is PQ's Site Director and News Jockey. Unfortunately, this means he no longer has time for table dancing.
Spyke is the PQ Content Manager, does the PQ in Review, the PQ Mailbag, and your girlfriend.
Hellchick is GameSpy's Action Genre Producer, or at least has convinced her friends that she is.
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.
