Why do you come to PlanetQuake? [Submitted by James E. Stecker]

Answer Votes

I'm a Quake addict! I must have a constant stream of Quake-related material at all times or I may explode.

The useful TechTips, the witty and humor filled Polls, interesting and stimulating editorials; it's the only way to stay on top of the Quake world!

43
3.6%

Pappy-R: I love the 435 little Quake addicts that got this one just right. We got da fix babeeee!
shaithis: Generally I check out the POTD, skim the news, and read any articles/features that catch my interest.
Hellchick: I come to PlanetQuake because the implant in the back of my neck tells me to.
Lee'Mon: I come to PQ because if I don't, I don't know if anything I write is actually getting published.
L33t'M0n: You are liars! The fools at Software Etc. and Best Buy do not know of us! They dare not know the truth... that we truly ARE weird!
Spyke: I come here because I work here, fools! You ALL do!
Ash: I tried getting an IV for my constant stream of Quake-related material, they send my app here to PQ by mistake.

 

What brand of computer are you running? [Submitted by Chem32]

Answer Votes
Percentage
A homegrown beast I made myself!

Gateway, Compaq, or some other prepackaged piece of $%*#.

Alienware, Falcon Northwest, or some other respectable maker.
77
6.6%
I'm running a computer now?
70
6%

Pappy-R: Thunder! It's a Thunder. Only made in Canada...like that tea or something.
shaithis: It appears to be an "Innov8v", which is the company that builds the systems we use at GameSpy.
Hellchick: WOW, 66% of our readers make their own systems. Cool. Not counting my work system, my home system is totally homegrown.
Lee'Mon: I would be surprised, but A)most gamers don't have the money to buy a respectable maker, and B)no POS pre-built machine comes with enough 3D acceleration to run Q3A.
L33t'M0n: You guys use computers?!? I've been running Q3A on my GameBoy.
Spyke: Hellchick the liar had to get the tech guys at GameSpy to build hers for her.
Ash: Homegrown, even to the point of adding plexiglass windows and lights.

Haha, if you choose the one above, you are wrong. This one is right because it has Hellchick in it.
538
46.2%

Pappy-R: What exactly is a PO Poll?
shaithis: I think Hellchick's fans may be just a bit obsessed.
Hellchick: I think you're right. Can I hide in your cubicle, shai?
Lee'Mon: Why can't I ever have obsessive fans? [reads emails demanding "Generations"] Wait. Never mind...
L33t'M0n: I'm sure I'd have obsessive fans if I wasn't already one of Hellchick's.
Spyke: LEFT.
Ash: Hmmm, I'd like to buy a vowel?

Why do the questions suck this week? [Submitted by Spyke]

Answer Votes
Percentage
Because the poll script ate all the good questions.
70
6%
Because no one sent in good questions.
170
14.6%
Because L33t'M0n h4x0r3d teh Poll.
232
20%
This question sucks.
688
59.3%

Pappy-R: Somebody pass me the big hammer so I can fix this Poll script once and for all.
shaithis: "I'd just like to say this gig sucks!"
Hellchick: I'd hazard the guess that it's because I don't do the poll anymore, but I think Spyke will attempt to murder me if I do.
Lee'Mon: I transfered the poll script into the Klesk NeuroBot, and a certain evil individual decided to splatter it all across tourney3.
L33t'M0n: Congratulations to half of you! Rather than answer the question, you declared the problem already stated in the question! And Lee'Mon, I plead the Fifth, Sixth, and Twenty-Fourth-and-a-Half.
Spyke: I'd concur with shaithis if it didn't probably mean I'd be fired.
Ash: The questions suck this week because I didn't get to say: "Mmmm... boobies", wait, ok, the questions rock now.

 


Who are these people anyway?

Pappy-R is PQ's Site Director and News Megalomaniac.
Spyke runs the New Bolshevik Party and is PQ's Content Manager.
Ash SI TEH L33T NEWS D00D.
Lee'Mon writes articles and editorials for PQ, which means he's really into finding things to complain about.

Hellchick is GameSpy's Action Genre Producer, or at least has convinced her friends that she is.
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.
