Week of March 8th, 1999
What version of Quake III Arena will you be buying?
|None of the above|
|All of the above|
Bastard: 10% are linux? Hmmm. You sure about that?
Fargo: Only 20 Mac Quakers out there!? You're kidding me!
flower: Atari or maybe Windows
China: Wow, the "Loyal 19" on Macs; they're a stubborn group, eh? :)
Gestalt: Not many of you Mac users out there...
How do you pronounce id Software?
Fargo: id rhymes with squid. In fact, the original name of the company was Squid software -- due to space constraints it was shortened so that Commander Keen could play with 256K RAM. That's why it isn't capitalized.
flower: Who's id Software? heh
China: id, as in "id". you know!!
Gestalt: eye-dee, but I know it's wrong now. ;-)
How fast do you want to see the railgun reload in Quake III Arena?
|Faster than Quake II|
|Same as Quake II|
|Slower than Quake II|
|What's a railgun?|
Bastard: Let's make it faster AND give everyone small nuclear devices capable of clearing entire levels. That way we can remove the problem of actually having "skill".
Fargo: All these people who want it to go faster are gonna be the first ones to whine whenever the first person to find the railgun automatically controlls the level. Weak!! I think Quake II had a great balance.
flower: like faster than SuperMan...for sure!
China: Slower than Quake II? Yikes!
Gestalt: Well, the masses have spoken...
What contributes the most to your deathmatching skills?
|My m4d sk1llz!|
|A fast net connection|
|Scripts and aliases|
|I have no skills|
Bastard: It's all in the PAK9 baby! Check it: http://www.geocities.com/WestHollywood/Chelsea/6482/
Fargo: (Frags + ping) to the power of Packet Loss = Skill
flower: coffe, smokey treats and thresh!
China: Playing on a LAN builds up the m4d sk1lls. Imma put a smackdown on j00, chump! :)
Who do you blame if you lose?
|My computer - it's too slow!|
|My ping - laaaaag!|
|The other players - cheating llamas!|
|The dog next door - quit barking!|
|The voices in my head, they made me do it!|
|Anything / anyone convenient|
|Nobody but me, myself and I|
Bastard: I silently curse my own feebleness.
Fargo: I blame the guy who beat me. Stand still when I'm trying to shoot you, freak!
flower: god damn this noise inside my head...
China: Everyone else always camps :)
Gestalt: Yeah, I suck.
You know you're obsessed when you...
|Use Quake words in real life (gib, frag, 0wned)|
|Walk over things to pick them up|
|Strafe jump to run faster|
|Have nightmares about drowning in the pipe in Q2CTF2|
|I've never done any of those|
|Strafe around corners when walking down the street|
|Dress up to look like your clan skin|
|Get flashbacks from deathmatching|
|Drop out of college / quit your job to play Quake|
|Have to buy a new mouse every week|
|Leave your girl/boyfriend to spend more time with Quake|
|Met your girl/boyfriend playing Quake|
|Have an urge to steal red/blue flags and run home with them|
|Carry an axe everywhere you go|
Bastard: If your girlfriend doesn't play quake, your life is not in balance. FIX NOW!
Fargo: ...when you run a Quake site?
flower: I like to Rocket Jump to work now that I know the map.
China: I have Quake dreams. It'll be a normal dream where everyday stuff is happening, but it all takes place in QuakeWorld. ROCK!!!
Gestalt: Don't laugh, but I really did have that Stronghold Opposition drowning dream once. I'm sure it says something very dark and Freudian about me. Either that, or I just play too much Q2CTF. DAMN YOU ZOID!
