Pappy-R: Come catch my flying grenade of love!!
Ash: Whatever lyrical rampage hits me at the time.
shaithis: I don't tend to shout out battle-cries so much as talk to the game in a Charles Bronson voice. "eeyyy... st00pid... you want some of dis? Yeah that's right, skillset, get outta my way."
Fargo: Usually I saw "ow" a lot.
Spyke: My playing is peppered with lots of expletives.
Demonwench: I normally shout "Bugger!" or "For the love of Pete!" Then Lee'Mon gets jealous.
Lee'Mon: "Mutha FRAGGA!!!!!!!!!!"

61.3%

Mynx, ruler of all the light touches and beyond, posessor of all good and evil: Riot-Star is a llama.
Pappy-R: Llama fits so well with it's origins, the dreaded lamer. Couldn't we just call everyone Melvin to make it easier though. Hi Melvin.
Ash: bleat bleat
shaithis: Any semi-enraged panda could easily kill a human being.
Fargo: *plays with his pet Llama* Good Llama! GOoood Lllllllama! Don't let those mean ol' panda bears scare you! Yes, you're a fuzzywuzzy widdle wwama, aren't you?
Spyke: "Hellchick".
Lee'Mon: Spyke.
Demonwench: Beware the green spit.

Mynx, ruler of all the light touches and beyond, posessor of all good and evil: When it started feelin' good, we stopped testin'...
Pappy-R: My average is now 166, but I really can't see any difference between that and 140 so who cares anymore.
Ash: I get around 140, but I play with most of the graphic options turned down.
shaithis: I haven't bothered to check my framerate or tweak my system since Quakeworld. If a 600 with a GeForce can't give me reasonable performance right out of the box, then the hell with it.
Fargo: Once it started feelin' good, I kept testin' and testin' and testin'!!
Spyke: What's a framerate?
Demonwench: My frame is 17". Rates? It goes for about $250.
Lee'Mon: That GeForce2 joke would be funnier if that wasn't the video card I actually have. Should I claim I only play on my Banshee to make all of you feel better?

Mynx, ruler of all the light touches and beyond, posessor of all good and evil: Playing Quake 2 made me want to kill people. Kill 'em ded.
Pappy-R: I have a list, the list is long. Are you on the list? Oh never mind, that one's for Santa.
Ash: Kill people? I don't think so. I'm a lover, not a fighter. ;)
shaithis: No... but driving in California has made me want to kill many, many people. Let me assure you: Wherever you live, no matter how bad the drivers are, they are nowhere near the level of awfulness present on the roads in Orange County.
Fargo: I'm a lover, not a llama.
Spyke: I was going to go on a shooting rampage, but I forgot my gun!
Demonwench: Kill anyone? I have access to sleep drugs, man! Sure to put you to sleep but you don't wake up! Don't piss me off! HAHAHAHA!!!
Lee'Mon: Nope, I use Quake to express myself. Then I take a Steyr Aug to the campus bell tower and express myself there, too.

Mynx, ruler of all the light touches and beyond, posessor of all good and evil: YOU WEENIES COULDN'T HANDLE ME ANYWAY!
Pappy-R: Bass fishing! I'm hooked!
Ash: I fighting game would be pretty slick, I've always wanted to bitch slap a team mate when they did something stupid.
shaithis: A lenghty single-player FPS title with the interactivity of Deus Ex and the presentation of Half-Life.
Fargo: I wanna race with machine guns and rocket launchers.
Spyke: An update of Commander Keen.
Demonwench: Would it be possible to cross Zerg with Quake bots? RTS and Quake would be scarey.
Lee'Mon: Tetris. Definately Tetris.

Corkscrew? WTF? Kitchen utensils have no place in Q3A!
605
58.5%

Mynx, ruler of all the light touches and beyond, posessor of all good and evil: You know what? Boobies. Boobies own joo.
Pappy-R: Wow! Over 200 people are completely full of...ummm, PooP!
Ash: Yes. Boobies 0wn me. Hardcare 0wnage, right here.
shaithis: It depends entirely on what I've been playing. If I play railmatch (ie instagib) for a few weeks, my accuracy goes way the hell up. If I'm playing an engineer in Q3F for two weeks, it goes way down.
Fargo: Accuracy? Shit, no wonder my railgun never did splash damage.
Spyke: I'm partial to Tweezers Q3A and Toothpick Q3A myself.
Demonwench: Sure kitchen utensils have a place in Quake! Imagine a fork gun instead of a nail gun... Or Death by Spooning! THAT'D be humiliation!
Lee'Mon: Been playing WFA as a Cyborg. My railing percentage is a bit down. My "explode into chunky gibs" percentage, however, is through the roof.
