Week of January 25th, 1999
What's the strangest mod you've played?
|Catch The Chicken|
|Stop that, it's silly!|
|I don't play mods|
Chris: Don't really play mods so much these days, but 'Catch The Chicken' certainly was a strange twist on things.
Bastard: Hmm. Remember "Strip Quake" where instead of losing health and armor you lost items of clothing?
Fargo: "On second thought, let's not go there. Such a silly place."
China: AWww, Crate DM... never have I laughed so much!!!
How many nicknames do you use online?
|0 - I only use my real name|
|1 - There can be only one|
|2 - Just a little schizo|
|3-6 - Variety is the spice of life|
|7+ - One for every day of the week|
Chris: Just the one these days, well, most of the time anyway ;)
Bastard: I frequently use the name "Shannelle" and I'm a bisexual 22 yr.old with gigantic ....
Fargo: The best names are the ones that you never thought twice about until people call you that more often then your real name. I'm not forever associated with a movie who's best line was, "So, I guess that was your partner in the woodchipper?"
China: Used to have a few, but it's been whittled down to just "China"
Gestalt: One at a time, though I've had three since I started out on the net...
Have you ever broken something on your computer because you were so owned?
|Yes, all the time - just call me John Romero|
|No, I'm never owned!|
|No, that stuff's too expensive to throw around|
|What the f*ck are you talking about?!?|
Chris: Owned? That's another one of those strange American expressions :) No one will ever 'own' me, damnit!
Bastard: Owned? Me?
Fargo: The only thing that would be broken is my yet-to-be-challenged winning streak. I WILL OWN J00!
China: Ummm, my mouse take a beating every time. Never broken it though.
Gestalt: Never actually broken anything, but I'm not above hitting my computer.
How much do you use the grapple?
|I don't play any mods with a grapple|
|I don't know the binding damnit!|
|Never - out of principle|
|Not often - I'm too lagged to control it|
|Sometimes - but only when I need to|
|Very often - it's the only way to travel!|
|All the time - just call me Tarzan|
Chris: Speaking of grapples, Lith better put one into Blood2 CTF or I will cry... The grapple OWNZ!
Bastard: There's no grapple in halflife.. is there?
Fargo: There's a grapple in Half-Life? Oh wait, wrong site.
China: Grapple kills are the most fun ;)
Gestalt: I don't use it much because when you're lagged it messes up the client-side prediction. When I played Q2CTF over a LAN for the first time I spent the first ten minutes just grappling around my base making like Tarzan. ;-)
What are you going to buy to play Quake III Arena?
|More than one of the above|
|I need a whole new computer damnit!|
|Nothing - I don't plan to buy Q3A|
|Nothing - I already have an uber-ninja system|
|New 3D accelerator|
|New 2D card|
|New sound card|
|Bigger hard drive|
Chris: Might need a new house to fit in what I will need to get a rockin' framerate on that game :) We shall see nearer the time...
Bastard: Bring on the pain.
Fargo: Bye bye 266, hello 450. Or 500. Or ... whatever ridiculous integer Intel comes out with.
China: Yes, Q3A will finally make me upgrade the whole hunk o' junk.
Gestalt: I hope I won't need to upgrade again, but I'll probably buy some extra RAM and a better modem to be on the safe side.
