21.2%

Demonwench: I have an assortment of little stuffies sitting on my puter. Oh, and a dried flower. They give me POWER!!
Mynx: We have a collection of blinking, windup, lightup, vibrating toys from McD's happy meals. These are the toys that terrified my 3 year old - if he gets one that is scary, he will now just stick it atop the monitor on his own.
Lee'Mon: Yeah, my Athlon Thunderbird, my Geforce2, and my Microsoft Game Voice.
Ash: Typically I would say the pictures on the wall would be my good luck, but lately I would just have to say it's the computer.
Pappy-R: The Iron Maiden from Quake 2, one of the intel guys (silver) and one of the characters from Reboot(that mega virus guy). They're not for luck though, just stuff I grabbed. The lucky stuff is the artwork my daughter puts in my office.
Hellchick: My Intel guy (my dad works for Intel), my Strogg Iron Maiden, and my Quake II female marine action figures. They're not dolls, dammit!
shaithis: I have a "Psycho Mantis" action figure, from Metal Gear Solid, who's currently humping an empty bottle of Absolut Vodka.

What is the most annoying thing that happens to you when playing RA3? [submitted by Chris]

Good old clan arena rape, there is nothing more fun than running around a corner by yourself into a group of 5 players who all have their favorite weapon. "OH MY GOD THERE ARE 5 OF....SPLAT!"

Its you and two opponents left, you know they are both very low on health while you still have full, you switch to shotgun for a quick win and get simul-railed by both of the bast$#ds.

Wow, they actually printed this poll question?

22.7%
Hellchick
261
29.1%

Mynx: The call of the wild Hellchick can deter even the most jaded of players. Hey, and she has boobies.
Demonwench: The most annoying thing for me is blowing myself up with a rocket launcher...
Lee'Mon: After her close victory over me at CorkScrew, definately Hellchick.
Ash: I really hate it when a friend and I are playing by ourselves in an arena, and I'm 0wning... then as soon as people come in I lose, so I have to wait in line.
Pappy-R: While you're in fighting an opponent who has a very good chance of spanking you and your 5 remaining health, four more people come into the arena to make the line longer for you. Crank those MP3's!
Hellchick: Remind me to tell you guys about the two dorks who didn't believe it was me when I jumped on their server and totally OWNED them.
shaithis: It occurs to me that I probably shouldn't have divulged the information I did in my answer to the previous question...

Mynx: Sure, I like my men to haul around a BFG. Who doesn't? But, the BFG belongs in Doom.
Demonwench: Men with big guns turn me on... ;-)
Lee'Mon: Given what Demonwench said... BFG man. Absolutely.
Ash: It's all good. If it's in the map, I'm not going to just let it sit there, but I dont' miss it when it's not there.
Pappy-R: It all depends on the map and match style. Never in a real match!
Hellchick: I like it when I'm losing.
shaithis: It's a weapon, like any other. Get over it. :)

shaithis: I work for GameSpy. If I didn't play games at work, that'd probably be a problem.

58.2%

Mynx: I'm always up for a longer pole.
Demonwench: Was this poll longer than last week's? I didn't even notice.
Lee'Mon: Is this the poll? I thought it was the Question Of The Week.
Ash: Ya, so I was milking... It still rawked!
Pappy-R: It's time we get Ash a little milkmaid's outfit if he's gonna keep this up. But hell, a longer PQ Poll is just more betterer.
Hellchick: Short polls make baby Jesus cry.
shaithis: baby Jesus does a lot of crying. Lies, short polls, broken webservers... everything makes him weepy. He needs to grow the hell up!

 


Who are these people anyway?

Pappy-R is the PlanetQuake Site Director and ensures that all the coolness on PQ that happens, happens.
Hellchick is GameSpy's Action Genre Producer, or at least has convinced her friends that she is.
Ash is PQ's new Content Manager and is still searching for his "inner-l33t."
Mynx is our resident advice expert, knowledgeable about all sorts of topics that the rest of us are just too scared to touch.
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.
Lee'Mon writes articles and editorials for PQ, which means he's really into finding things to complain about.
Demonwench helps with the Mailbag and helps give a fresh new perspective for how people suck.
