Spyke: 1.17. I like my mods a lot.
Hellchick: I had to downgrade to 1.17 just because I needed to play some mods for work, but I like the physics in 1.25.
Pappy-R: I'd have to say v1.17 on this one. I still play the other to answer questions on it, but for my play, it's v1.17.
: 1.17. I'm too lazy to update, and apparantly so is Quake3Fortress. :)
Fargo: I haven't updated to the new Q3 ... not since that, uh, accident with my 3D card and my drivers.
Lee'Mon: Fool! I have a 40GB hard drive... I'm running BOTH!
Ash: 1.17 myself. I like to be able to try the mods that send news, and after seeing someone playing as Hunter with Sorlags head for a while, I think I need more preperation for 1.25.

Spyke: It refers to Pappy. He's big and fuzzy.
Hellchick: I'm pretty sure it has something to do with PlanetQuake having been left in the fridge for too long.
Pappy-R: LALALA..I can't hear you..LALALA Expect a contest soon on the subject. Why should I just tell you when I can give away some schweet schwag in the process!
: I, uh... Oh god I have no idea, and I'm happy that way. Happy!
Fargo: I like a little fuzzy on the side.
Lee'Mon: Mid-air rails no longer work... I get my "big fuzzy" from killing them with the rocket launcher and railing the body as it flies past.
Ash: I'm just glad no one said it was the Big Fuzzy Ash. That would be too graphic.

Spyke: ICQ, baby! I got 'em all!
Hellchick: In a high nasally voice with a slight British accent.
Pappy-R: Nachos? We don't need no steenking nachos! We come with a side of bacon though.
: ICQ... but I'm like... leet and shit. :P
Fargo: I try to avoid the PQ staffers, including myself.
Lee'Mon: I simply talk to the voices in my head.
Ash: Can we get nachos? I'm pretty fond of nachos; however, I don't know how fond I am of Pappy's side of bacon.

Spyke: Nearly 300 people are scared of threats to their personal safety. Geez, we don't bite!
Hellchick: Mmmm...Last Man Standing...
Pappy-R: Hmmm. It's an odd mix of people who proudly proclaim Q3A is fine, and others that fear stating flaws in Q3A. That's right...live in Ph3aR!
: Every space-themed or techno-themed map. The gothic ones are nifty though.
Fargo: That large black void, particular the way it rises up to kill me when I'm innocnetly jumping around a platform map.
Lee'Mon: What's wrong with Q3A? MORE MODS!
Ash: Carmack forgot the line: if (client->pers.netname == "Ash") { I_WIN }; But besides that, nothing.

Spyke: "You must play this game all day", usually when it's the first time I've played in weeks. LAME.
Hellchick: I don't know, but I need to come up with a better one. No one's buying my "Fargo was attempting to flash this side of the offices and I had to go scrub my eyes with a brush" excuse.
Pappy-R: Oh it's just gotta be lag! That and the goat thing.
: May god smite me down for every mentioning the word "pweened" to Fargo.
Fargo: Huh huh. Pweened. You're just jealous because you missed it when I showed the whole office my big fuzzy.
Lee'Mon: When people die around me, what excuse do they give? "Oh, it's you."
Ash: Pappy, you swore you wouldn't tell anyone about the goat thing!

Spyke: You know, guys.. I have Hellchick's phone number, and will distribute it.. for a price.
Hellchick: Dude. I got 0wned.
Pappy-R: This is the one I refuse to answer on account of my personal safety.
: Why oh why do perfectly attractive women feel the need to bleach their hair, fill their breasts with plastic, and start dressing like the town hooker? Oh, wait... the ferrari. Right.
Fargo: Hell, for a Ferrari I'd get fake boobs. Wait. Having fake boobs would be cooler than a ferrari, I'd never leave the house.
Lee'Mon: Sorry, gotta go with my main squeeze, Demonwench. (No relation to the other demonic female around here...)
Ash: Hellchick's got fake boobs?!? Oh wait, didn't read the other choice.... nevermind, that was obvious.

 


Who are these people anyway?

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.

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.
