Week of February 22nd, 1999
Have you ever suffered a physical injury from playing Quake ?
|Only the proverbial numb cheeks..(hey 12 hrs is only just enough !)|
|Broken hand from punching monitor|
|Assaulted by other players..for whatever reason...|
|Strain injury (non permanent) to hands|
|Strain injury to eyes|
|Strain injury to back (spent all my money on the h/ware, forgot the chair!)|
|Who cares !....Play on !|
|Hurt myself playing Quake?!? hah!|
BreadTooth: Yes. Everytime I sit next to Tetsuo at a LAN party. I have been bitten, punched, tackled, headbutted and kicked. Been cursed at and spit on.... and thats when he's winning!! sheesh
Fargo: Does waking up with a hangover after a LAN party count?
Gestalt: Bruised knuckles from punching my computer. The computer was DOA.
How many mods do you have on your hard drive?
|None - deathmatch purist|
|One - must stay focused|
|2 - 5 - not many|
|6 - 11 - enough to keep me busy|
|12 - 25 - lots and lots|
|26 + - recyclebin? what's that?|
BreadTooth: heh...... you said hard
Fargo: It's stupifying how fast a hard drive can fill up with Quake residue.
Gestalt: Too many... If that's possible?
When deathmatching, are you...
|obsessed - I must win or it's no fun|
|having fun - but... winning IS important|
|having fun - I occasionally win|
|confused - trying to figure out what the hell is going on|
BreadTooth: drunk? yeah.... most of the time :)
Fargo: I work to win. If I can't win I upgrade my system.
Gestalt: I'm not bothered about winning particularly, though obviously it's nice.
What would make the best Quake novelty add-on?
|Quake smell-o-vision (scratch-n-sniff the gibbs!)|
|Atomic force feedback... so it really feels like you got railed|
|Play-by-play commentary from an irritating announcer|
|Placing bets with your credit card|
|An all-in-one weapon... shoots everything at once!|
|A "Kill the Spice Girls" TC|
|A bot that hunts down and kills whiners|
BreadTooth: Capture-Everybody-And-Lets-Do-Five-Shots-Of-Jager! ROCK!! Hey CRT, can you whip up that mod for us?
Fargo: Live Quake betting! That would rock! Pretty soon the law would come down on it and id Software would have to release Quake III with a sticker, "For amusement only"
Gestalt: I'm with the majority on this one...
Why do poll questions almost always give the option "Other"?
|Well, what if I don't agree with any of the answers?|
|It's important not to discriminate against minority groups|
|Without other we'd all be the same|
|Because the people making up the questions run out of ideas|
|So there is always an easy answer|
|I need other, none of the questions apply to me|
|Just in case|
Hang on, haven't I seen these questions before?
Fargo: Yes, but the results are fresh!
Gestalt: Deja vu...
Will you ever forgive us?
|Hell no! That's twice now damnit...|
|No - to lose one set of poll results once is a misfortune, but to lose them twice is feckin' unbelievable!|
|Yes - but don't let it happen again!|
|Hell yes! I'm a sucker for punishment...|
|I haven't a clue what you're talking about|
Fargo: We fixed the system be sending the drunken monkeys to a management seminar. They all have planners now.
Gestalt: Thanks guys, you're so supportive.
The inevitable .. which form of Quake do you prefer?
|None of the above|
Fargo: Whoa! That's way more support for Q2 than I suspected. I like Q2 for mods but Quake I has the meanest deathmatch action.
