Week of November 23rd, 1998
How do you hone your gibbing skills when you're alone?
|I am never alone|
|Playing single player|
|Playing against bots|
|Reading strategy guides, magazines etc|
|I don't NEED to hone my skills, I'm a Gib God!|
|I eat, sleep, work, play and dream Quake|
Joost: Run around in empty dm levels, practicing target shooting against invisible opponents. (no really!)
Mix: Is that a personal question?
Bastard: Isn't it supposed to be skillZ?
Gestalt: I play a lot with the Eraser and CRBots, simply because I can never get a ping much under 500...
How many Quake / Quake II mods do you have installed?
|None - I'm a deathmatch purist|
|One - There can be only one|
|2-5 - Just a few|
|6-10 - Enough to keep me busy|
|11-20 - More than I can remember the bindings for|
|21-50 - I have a short attention span|
|Lots - I'm a completist|
Joost: Probably just CTF left right now. I don't even know for sure if I have more, that should give you a pretty good indication of how many mods i play right now ;)
Mix: I've got the standard mods, plus a few that looked interesting...
Bastard: I just trimmed my directory some. Couldn't bring myself to delete Get Rich Quake though!
Gestalt: 11 at the moment, but I just got a new 10Gb hard drive (mwuhahahahaaa) so I'll have them all soon. :)
Which crosshair do you use?
|One I found on the net|
|One I made myself|
|This game has more than one crosshair?|
|This game has a crosshair?|
Mix: And 'lo, the holy cross...
Bastard: This weekend at the beatdown Midnight gave me his killer *huge* crosshair and suddenly I was railing people left and right. HUGE CROSSHAIR NOW RECOMMENDED! :)
Gestalt: The cross mostly, though sometimes if I'm bored I'll switch to the dot.
Do you ever taunt, flip-off etc. in a deathmatch?
|Hell no! It wastes too much time!|
|No - It takes me too long to find the key|
|Yes - After my victim is dead|
|Hell yeah! I give him the finger before we get it on!|
|You can flip-off?|
|What does flip-off mean?|
Joost: I need my controls to actually kill the enemy, thank you very much.
Mix: It was cool the first time.
Bastard: SuperFly has a script where when he runs forward he grabs his crotch and backwards he is flipping you off. Fairly Amusing.
Gestalt: In CTF I'll use the waves and salutes to team members, but I hardly ever waste time taunting an enemy unless he's already dead...
Which of the following features would you most like to see built into Q3?
|GameSpy type functionality |
|Real-time voice communication|
|Universal ranking system |
|Better graphics |
|Better net play |
|These choces suck|
Joost: What idiot wouldn't choose better net play? (Ooops... almost 2000 of you ;)
Mix: I want to see Q3 run on a 486 with a 2400 baud modem. Really. I do.
Bastard: Uh, GameSpy functionality? There is only one gamespy!
Gestalt: So what do the 500 of you who voted "These choices suck" want to see?
How often do you clean your mouse?
|Once a week or more|
|Once a month or more|
|Never! I just buy a new one when it stops working|
|Never! I'm a slob|
|Never! I don't use one|
Mix: DOn't need to with my nifty 3M Precision Mousing Surface!
Bastard: What do you clean your mouse with? I've never seen any decent tools.
Gestalt: Um .. yeah, my mouse is really skanky. Probably time I gave it a clean.
