Chris: I guess I would be if I played Q2, seeing as the majority seem to have accepted it without too many moans and groans.
Gestalt: To be honest I haven't really noticed any changes since v3.14 apart from the air code changes around v3.15...
Bastard: I'm still on 3.19.
BreadTooth: awww yeah!!
crt: w000! Source code too!
Joost: I guess i wasn't hard core enough to notice there was something wrong with Q2 half a year ago.
China: Final version? Haven't we been here before?

Chris: Blood2 for sure! The gibs in Blood2 are definitely the nastiest! Damnit, limb-loss should be better though!
Gestalt: Since it's nostalgia time, I'll say Doom. The corpses in Doom make a lovely mess. Tasteful.
Bastard: The half-life gibs are ridiculous. Bones and skulls? ROCK!
BreadTooth: heh - you said gib
crt: ROTT -- Watch out for the eyeball!
Joost: Where's Heretic II in this list? Someone's obviously note used the powered up flamin' blade!
China: The best thing about SP Quake was every monster had a severed head when you gibbed it.

Chris: Speed running rules! Haven't tried it? Don't know what it is? Head over to Speed Demos Archive and find out now, baby!
Gestalt: Nope, I'm no roadrunner.
Bastard: It can be fun at lan parties. At the beatdown a few months ago we did cooperative speed running in quake1. When you died, you went into observer mode. Much thanks to Mungo for writing the mod!
BreadTooth: only to D's ( a PQ tradition)
crt: Yea.. it was kinda fun.. but vey frustrating
Joost: Is this a trick question?

Gestalt: Um .. just the one that came free with some memory I bought a couple of years ago.
Bastard: 3m fer sure. Email alison@gamespy.com if you want one with the gamespy logo on it.
BreadTooth: mouse man +, yo
crt: 3M, They shouldn't even call the other things mouse pads
Joost: The Edge pad that I won at The Frag 2.
China: All's I'm saying is: fleshy/silicon wrist-rest.

Do you care whether the server you connect to keeps stats?

Chris: Nope.
Gestalt: Looks like a big turn out for the "don't know, don't care" brigade there. I'm not too bothered either way myself to be honest, but I'd like to see more servers doing it so I could finally see just how lame I really am. ;-)
Bastard: Stats. Bitch, Please. I just want to have fun.
BreadTooth: I don't care about stats, just want to kill
crt: Don't really like stats.. they are usually very misleading
Joost: Nah, probably better that way.
China: I like stats; a low key way to see how I'm ranked against other players.
