Week of March 28th, 1999
Have you bought any of the Quake II action figured released by id and ReSaurus?
|Action Figures? What?!?|
|Someone else bought me one/some.|
Mix: I bought "Pet Lovin' Barbie"... Did I just say that out loud?
Fargo: Check out this week's mailbag, where one reader descirbed the action figures as ... "bejeezusly swag." I'm not making that up.
crt: Dude! They're dolls!
Dakota: I have not purchased any of the action figures, but I did get a complete collection for being one of the models for that series. You might remember me from such Quake 1 action figures as The Shambler...
Gestalt: Nope, but I've got a pewter cyberdemon that came with the id Anthology pack - does he count?
Moltar: I'd bet that Zarous was one of the guys that voted yes. He loves action figures.
Br34d2th: heh, he said figured .....
Bastard: I think anyone with a Quake Tattoo should get the entire set for free.
Darx: Nope, no cyborg...bad call!
VirginMary: shhh...don't tell Alex that there are Quake Action Figures
Flower: YEAH! They're staying at Barbie & Ken's townhouse until the new Marine base is built!
China: Still waiting for mine... I like the monsters. They can duke it out w/ the aliens on my desk.
crispy: Don't have any, myself. I might pic up one or two sometime.
Will you buy the N64 or PS-X versions of Quake II?
|Hell yeah, Quake on every system!|
|Hell yeah, both, so I can Quake it up three ways in one room! |
|Hell no, it's gonna suck on both platforms! |
|No way, ports suck.|
|Only PS-X, I don't own an N64, or don't want to buy it for N64. |
|Only N64, I don't own a PS-X, or don't want to buy it for PS-X.|
|I don't have any money...|
|God, not more "hell ya!" answers!|
Mix: Buy the N64 version. Umm... just because.
Fargo: Okay, Quake with a touchpad. *knock knock* Helll-ooo!?
crt: Do they make it for my NES?
Dakota: I don't own either N64 or PS-X, but I will gladly purchase the game despite my inability to actually play it. I think it will help the price when I try to sell my Quake II collection on eBay.
Gestalt: Nope, I don't have a console. Even if I did, I've tried playing an FPS with a gamepad and hated it. Until someone makes a keyboard and mouse for the Playstation, count me out. ;-)
Moltar: Hey!.. where's the colecovision port?!?
Br34d2th: only if GameLaunch would support those platforms ;]
Bastard: Port? Bitch, Please!
Darx: Mario Party!
VirginMary: yup, as soon as I get a N-64 or PS-X
Flower: how bout you BUY a Mousepad from the BLACKMARKET! ...owned
China: I'd rather play it on a PC anyday; I like the controls better.
crispy: I haven't owned a console since the original NES.
With Quake3:Arena coming up, do you plan on upgrading your bandwith?
|Yeah, definitely. This 56k crap has gone on long enough.|
|Yeh, but mostly to download pr0n faster.|
|Nah. I'm happy with my 400 ping.|
|I would, but I can't afford it. :(|
|I would, but there's nothing better offered in my area.|
|My LPB skillz already own your ass!|
Mix: Two words: Cable Modem. Meep Meep!
Fargo: Cable modem should preclude basic phone service in Fargo's utonpian society.
Xenon: Thank god for the office T1
crt: Yup, time for the dual T1's
Dakota: You better believe it. I am going to overclock my modem to 57k. Maybe even 58k, if I can find a fan big enough to keep it cool.
Gestalt: One day cable modems will actually reach this part of the UK...
Moltar: They should all get a swanky job at a place with a T1 so they have a good ping and just hang out all the time.. that's why I'm here.
dweomer: Hell Yeah. I think PQ needs a DS3 at the office.
Bastard: LPB's are on the rise. Look out sucka!
Darx: No but I'm going to make sure I don't shut up about the offices here getting a phhater pipe!
VirginMary: hmmmm, depends..maybe dwe can answer this one .. hehe
China: Hmmmm, gotta get Basty to upgrade this t1...
crispy: Yeh, I'm in agreement with dwe. It's time for some more bandwith around here!
Who would win in a fight between Fargo and Gestalt? [had to put this in :) -crispy]
|Fargo would own up on Gestalt!|
|Gestalt would show Fargo why they call him the "UK Strangler"!|
|End of match by mutual KO|
|Aw for...I don't care!|
|Breadtooth would step in and lay the smack down!|
Mix: I'm betting on the mutual KO. call it a hunch.
Fargo: Me, and all 300-odd people who voted for me, are gonna |<lc|< ALL J00R A5535!!
Xenon: Go BT! Go BT!
crt: Those of you betting on Gestalt have never met BT.
Dakota: I've only ever seen Fargo and I don't have any independant proof that Gestalt exists. I suspect that he is actually an Agent.
Moltar: The boxing ring has been rented for the next BeatDown... I just hope the 50 gallon drum of body oil comes in on time.
dweomer: My money is on the 'tooth.
Br34d2th: heh.... I wonder if all those people really know who BreadTooth is. heh
Bastard: I think Fargo and Gestalt would rather make love than fight. Not that there's anything wrong with that! I mean, it's not for me but.......
VirginMary: Awww Yeah
Flower: I would Own them all!
China: Damn, crispy, what kinda question is this? Violence in the workplace...
crispy: Sorry China...it's that natural desire for competition, honed by hours of quake.
To what lengths would you go to get better frames in Quake?
|Spend thousands of dollars on the latest gear|
|Overclock the gear I got|
|Two words: Console Commands|
|Hell, I'd play in text mode if it meant better frames|
|Who needs frames when you got the mad skillz|
Mix: Where's the "sell your firstborn" option?
Fargo: I never liked frames, nowadays I prefer webpages that use tables. [Someone whispers into Fargo's ear.] Oh, nevermind.
Dakota: I will work late at night and slowly steal equipment from my co-workers. Let us see who is laughing when I have dual keyboards and dual mice.
Gestalt: Actually, most of the time I'm trying to REDUCE my frame rate so that netplay works over my 56k modem.
Moltar: Damn.. I've been waving chicken bones over my PC all these years for better framerates.. didn't know you could just buy it.
Br34d2th: hmmmm, can I hook up 4 cards in SLI???
Bastard: gamelaunch.com That's all you need to know.
VirginMary: how about pay someone to do it for me...
Flower: I dangle a cat treat in front of Stevens to make him run on a treadmill for better frames
China: Console commands: i mean, the textures are fine for single player, but who's gonna stop to look at the fancy stuff when you kickin ass?
crispy: I worry less about frames than I do image quality. It's the artist in me.
|A pound of bacon.|
|Planetquake's new content director.|
|Running out of ideas already, crispy? Jeez...|
Mix: Is it 3 day old bacon, or fresh from the grease-pit bacon?
Fargo: I don't eat pig cuz pig's a filthy animal. On another note, Here's what Crispy looks like!
Dakota: Bacon has a lot more experience than shaiaiaiaiaithiasiasidas...err, Crispy
Gestalt: "Mmm... I smell bacon. Elvis is in the kitchen."
Moltar: I guess we'll have to put the job back up in the helpwanted section
dweomer: Bueller? Bueller? .... Bueller?
Br34d2th: a BreadTooth after a BeatDown for sure.... mighty crispy indeed!
Bastard: Pretty sad Crispy, pretty sad.
Darx: crispy is a playa playa girrlll! Playa fo real!
Flower: Bastard in a Rice Crispy suit, pearl diving in a PHAT bowl of milk!
China: Guess it depends if the bacon is cooked. Now if the bacon is raw, then crispy is definitely crispier.
crispy: Hmmm...I got owned. ;)
