mynx: someone send me a new monitor, QUICK!! this one is near death :(
Ash: I'm pretty much just in the middle of the road for hardware. Though, I turn all the Q3 graphic options down anyway. ;)
Hellchick: Mine's sufficient enough to take down me, too. Which creates a massive paradox and we all vanish in a puff of logic.
Fargo: What the hell is a TSR-80? It's called the TRS-80 you freaks! Tandy-Radio-Shack! And don't mock it! It is a beast.
shaithis: Hellchick has, yet again, confused herself with the Quantum Mechanic from Nethack. We've really got to hold an intervention or something... it's getting out of hand.
Spyke: I had a TRS-80.. my DAD wrote my games. Those were the days.
Lee'Mon: Mounted to my brain. That jerk you see driving crazy in traffic? Me playing Need For Speed.
Demonwench: My box is rather cuboid in shape made out of a flimsy compressed paper product. Oh, and a clear polymer form-fitted to it.

mynx: barf
Ash: I won't ever have a PS2, so it really doesn't matter.
Hellchick: I think it should, if only because everything else is. I for one am slowly being won over by the PS2.
Fargo: Sure, yah, and I'll be so effective using my Dual-shock controller instead of my mouse/keyboard.
shaithis: Hang on while I piss everyone off: PC Gaming will be dead in five years, and we'll all be playing games on consoles. I firmly believe this. But I'm not buying Q3A for the PS2 because I'm not buying the PS2.
Spyke: I had a PS/1.. a whole 8mHz, and a 30 meg hard drive. Those were the days.
Lee'Mon: Pardon me while I piss off shaithis: The versatility, expandability, customization, and sheer power of PCs will allow them to triumph over consoles far, far into the future. When I'm coding mods for the Playstation VI, well, then we'll talk.
Demonwench: I say if they want to make the game for PS2, let 'em. Whatever turns ya on.

mynx: Can we have a few more voting options please?
Ash: I was trying to make up for the lack of options on the last question by picking a question with a bunch of options this time.
Hellchick: It'll be interesting to see how Dreamcast players compare to PC players. Personally, if they carry a rocket launcher, they're welcome in my house.
Fargo: They'll lose, it'll be great.
shaithis: If they've got the mouse and keyboard addons, they could potentially be good (ping aside). But... probably not.
Spyke: I remember when Dreamcast players were hated by everyone. Those were the days.
Lee'Mon: kill. Kill. KILL. KILL! ;^)
Demonwench: Eh. Everyone's gonna be shooting and killing each other. Does it really matter?

Spyke: I remember when I did the poll. Those were the days.
Lee'Mon: It's always the same... funky drunken monkeys did it.
Demonwench: Sigh...I'm not surprised that the males chose pr0n or boobs.

mynx: Self sacrifice seems to be my forte.
Ash: Definately take down the grenades, and usually Hellchick is on my team. =)
Hellchick: Hell, yes! But I'm more the type to sacrifice myself, my co-defender, and the flag carrier, too.
Fargo: I'm always there to take one for the team, wether I like it or not.
shaithis: Absolutely. Nothing matters in team games (particularly TF/Q3F) other than team score. I'll happily run behind a teammate who's got the flag and take rockets in the back to get him home safe.
Spyke: I don't play CTF anymore; those were the days.
Lee'Mon: I'm usually Cyborg in Weapons Factory Arena. 'Nuff said.
Demonwench: I suck at teamplay, so YES, I am GLAD to "take one for the team." ;-)

Lee'Mon: I'm l33t enough to know not to speak the language.

I got a [sexual favor]. You didn't say it had to happen IN the game.

27.4%

mynx: acquiring a husband!
Ash: Oh, I wish I could pick the last one.
Hellchick: Not being recognized when I was playing RA3 on a random server. These two yahoos actually thought someone was impersonating Hellchick, and then had the gall to think I was a guy beating them, so it DIDN'T COUNT. Oh wait, that's the worst thing that's happened to me.
Fargo: Let's just say it was really hard to concentrate on the game.
shaithis: Finally mastering the dual-grenade rocket jump at the end of the "rocket training" map for TF. BOW DOWN, MOTHERF*CKERS!
Spyke: I managed to remember what the days were that I was talking about.
Lee'Mon: Quad-Hand-Grenade-BFG10K-jump. Surviving it was the coolest thing. Cratering was the funniest.
Demonwench: Having Lee'Mon "teach" me the ways of Quake. ;-)

 


Who are these people anyway?

Hellchick is GameSpy's Action Genre Producer, or at least has convinced her friends that she is.
Fargo has been around since the beginning of PQ. He's been known to camp everything, including the poll.
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.
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.
Demonwench helps with the Mailbag and helps give a fresh new perspective for how people suck.
