Week of November 30th, 1998
How many news updates should PlanetQuake make about Bastard's Beatdowns?
|None - I don't want to hear about them|
|Just one - let me know when they're happening and that's it|
|2 - 3 - I want to know when it's happening, what's going on, and who wins|
|4 - 6 - Gimme lots of Beatdown news!|
|7+ - I'm a BeatDown addict!|
crt: More more more... make them all jealous!
Chris: Well if I start to see too many, I might cry cause I can never attend them :( 6000 miles is a touch too far for a Lan Party I reckon.
Should Bastard start a Beatdown World Tour?
|Hell no! That would just be silly|
|No, Beatdown should be kept in/around PQ offices|
|Yes, California is too far for me|
|Hell yes! That would rock|
|What the hell is Beatdown?|
|Who the hell is Bastard?|
crt: Sure! As long as he takes me with him!
Chris: Yes! Then maybe i can go to one :)
Mix: Then we release a double live album of the Beatdown Greatest Hits at WalMart.
Gestalt: Hell yes! There's no way I can get to a Beatdown from the UK...
How many buttons does your mouse have?
|Just the one - I'm not capable of moving my fingers independently|
|Standard two - old skool|
|Two and a wheel - doohickeys forever!|
|Three or more - I have da skillz|
|Three or more and a wheel - ph34r|
|I don't use a mouse|
crt: Wheel - best invention since the right mouse button
Chris: Im old skool, I think if i got a new mouse, my coordination would go right out the window :)
Mix: Logitech MouseMan all the way. I've got five fingers on my mouse hand, why not use them?
Gestalt: Three, but only two of them work for some reason...
Whats more important for you, visual quality or frame rate?
|FPS all the way - I *need* 120 fps!|
|FPS is more important, to a point|
|They're both equally important|
|Quality is more important, to a point|
|Quality all the way - I *need* pixel-perfect graphics!|
crt: FPS first.. then gimme pretty pictures
Chris: Both baby, say with me "P2-450, P2-450" :)
Mix: Quality is great, unless it'a slideshow... Speed is very important, especially in multiplayer.
Gestalt: Visual quality all the way. I just bought a RivaTNT, and it looks beautiful. I'd rather play
Quake II at 1024x768 with top image quality at 35fps rather than play at 640x480, tweak everything to hell and
put up with graphics glitches just to get 150fps...
What handedness do you play with in Quake II?
|Right, like in real life|
|Right, but I'm a lefty|
|Left, like in real life|
|Left, but I'm right-handed|
|Center, like in real life (?!?)|
|Center, but I don't really have three arms|
|I switch to whatever gives me the best shot|
|I don't play Quake II|
Chris: Im a hardcore Quaker, so I play with my feet.
Mix: I play righty, but I do have three arms... why wasn't there a choice for us three-armed people?
Gestalt: While I was playing Zaero I started switching on the fly. My config's all set up now so I can switch from left to right so I can peek round corners. :)
Are you looking forward to some new id Q2CTF maps?
|Hell yes! I'm sick of McKinley Revival|
|Yes - some more variety would be nice|
|No - there's enough already|
|Hell no! AllStar2 is better anyway|
|I don't play Q2CTF|
crt: CTF? Thats the mod where you have to find guns and stuff, right?
Mix: Is CTF losing popularity? I have to admit I don't play it anymore...
Gestalt: I love most of the Q2CTF maps, but some more variety wouldn't hurt...
