Week of January 11th, 1999
Do you ever record demos while playing Quake?
|Yes - to study my performance|
|Yes - to show off to my friends later|
|Yes - I'm a speedrunner|
|Yes - for some other reason|
|No - why would I do that?|
|No - how do I do that?|
Fargo: It's fun to watch yourself afterwards and see the opportunities you might have taken if you had more skillz. By the way, the Quake Done Quick demos are incredible!
Mix: We need more speedrunners out there... It's like Quake Olympics.
China: Its fun filming 1v1 and then trading the movie to watch yourself play.
BreadTooth: nope - but, I do wish that I had recorded the match that I took down the mighty Tetsuo at Beatdown 14 - That was one of the best matches of my life :)
Gestalt: "Hit the record, hit the record!"
Which of the multiplayer FPS games are you looking forward to most?
|Quake III Arena|
|Team Fortress II|
|Starsiege Tribes (already out!)|
Fargo: Kind of a loaded question for a Quake site... ;)
Mix: Mmmm... Q3... I was drooling over it before, but after seeing the MacWorld clip, I'm counting the days until Q3Test.
BreadTooth: Quake III for sure
Gestalt: I guess this was a stupid question to ask on a Quake site. ;-)
What do you do in a free for all deathmatch if you're low on health?
|Make a dash for a health pack|
|Go out in a blaze of glory|
|It depends on where I am|
Fargo: Must .... find .... lightning .... gun....
Mix: If I'm essentially cornered, I go out guns blazing, otherwise, run like hell for that pack.
China: Definitely try to take as many chumps as I can with me.
BreadTooth: hmmmm... rocket jump? heh
Gestalt: Go for it! I'm a psycho in a free for all - however little health I have I'll get stuck in and try and take down as many people with me as I can.
Do you ever sit in observer mode watching a game?
|Hell no - why would I do that?|
|Sometimes - if it's a good game|
|Sometimes - I'll watch one-on-one matches|
|Sometimes - other reason|
|Hell yes - that's all I ever do!|
Fargo: That's how I spend most of my time in Rocket Arena. *Rim shot.*
Mix: Observer mode in RA2 is almost as cool as playing.
China: The best way to learn tricks from the good players.
BreadTooth: sometimes at a Beatdown I like to observe Scunion Bots games
Gestalt: Occasionally I'll sit in observer mode in CTF before deciding which team to join, but I prefer to get in and play the game than just sit and watch...
Where are you voting from right now?
|School / college / university|
|A friend's house|
|A laptop and mobile phone|
|I am not here...|
Fargo: The people who aren't here used eraserbots to vote for them...
Mix: Work and home are the same, why wasn't there an option for that?
China: Ummm, work!! :)
BreadTooth: work - GAMESPY ROCKS!!
Gestalt: Home, which is also work. :-)
