Week of April 5th, 1999
Okay...is everyone tired of waiting for Q3Test?
|BLEAAURRAGH!! I'm going INSANE with anticipation!|
|Yeh, now that you mention it, i really would like to play it|
|Nah, let them take their time|
|NEVER! I can wait for ALL ETERNITY!|
Fargo: After Quake 3, id Software is going to switch all the Quake's around and we have to pick which one we think the nut is under.
Mix: Going insane? How about the people who are already there? Why the voices in my head were just telling me the other day...
Moltar: What the $%@# is BLEAAURRAGH?
China: Hold the phone. I will be right back.
VirginMary: one word: Crackwhores
Dakota: I am really looking forward to Q3Test, but I am willing to wait. I trust id completely and I know that they want to release it as much as we want it.
Bastard: Q3 is going to Rox0r Mc0wnAge you
crispy: BLEAAURRAGH is, of course, the deep and haunting scream of a gamer too long in Quake 3 withdrawl!
Were you fooled by the PQ April Fools Day Auction Hoax?
|Yeh, I admit it. I was blinded by my lust to own PQ|
|Nah, no way. I saw right through it.|
|What's all this about a hoax, now?|
|What's April Fools day?|
Fargo: We had a couple serious offers in the mail that really made me scratch my head. "People are treating this auction like a joke," said one. Ummmm...
Mix: It fooled practically all my friends. That should say something about the kind of people I hang out with. Gull-a-BULL!
China: Hoax?!? That's no hoax. I will be the Queen of PlanetQuake!!! Rule with an iron fist. No one can stop me. Muaaahahahahaaa!!
VirginMary: I never got my bid in..is it too late??
Dakota: Hoax? What are you talking about?
Bastard: Doesn't matter. The guy sent us the 13 grand anyway.
crispy: I was in on it from the start. muahaha!
What do you think of the new style of news?
|I love it! Keep up the good work.|
|Pretty much the same as I thought about the old style|
|Blah...the previous, more organized style was better|
|The news has changed?|
|I don't read the news|
Fargo: Do yourself a favor and Read the News. It's all like, cool and stuff.
Moltar: The news needs more BLEEAAURRAGH!
China: I think the news guys are wacky; I like it.
VirginMary: The ne wguys r0ck!
Dakota: I want to adopt LowTax
crispy: Erhm...I suppose I can't comment objectively on this. You guys should try reading the news though.
CTF still going strong, or ready to lay down and die?
|Tikki was right man, it's time to ditch CTF.|
|CTF die? BITCH PLEASE! Ian knows what's up.|
|It doesn't matter much to me.|
Fargo: CTF is an easy-to-learn team game, it ain't going anywhere. Helluva lot more fun than "Quake Hide and Seek."
Moltar: CTF needs more BLEEAAURRAGH!
China: CTF die?!? I kick you in da nuts.
VirginMary: no comment
Dakota: Oh, don't even get me started on this issue...CTF will remain a strong force for a long time.
Bastard: 526 People just broke Zoid's heart. grr! At the Beatdown 16 vs. 16 QW CTF is still a massive favorite... hellacious fun.
crispy: I'm a Team Fortress man. Never even played CTF, so it doesn't matter to me.
Voodoo3, Rage128 or TNT2?
|TNT2 - I can't live without my 32bit color and crisp 2D quality!|
|Rage128 - If Carmack likes 'em, they're okay by me.|
|Voodoo3 - Framerate is my life!|
|Two out of three - Which I use will depend on the game.|
|All three - I have expansion slots aplenty|
|None - Can't afford 'em.|
|None - I want something else.|
Fargo: The TNT just looks crisper. Not to be confused with Crispy, our content director.
Mix: MMmmm... pretty colors.
China: Mmmmm, Quake..... wait a sec, i've got to kill someone.
VirginMary: whoever sends me a free one first wins!!
Dakota: I have had Voodoo 1 and Voodoo2 (12mb SLI), but I am very tempted by TNT2
Bastard: /me runs to buy stock in nvidia
crispy: I bought a TNT. It made me a convert for life. Nvidia owns me.
RETRO POLL (submitted 04/07/97): Does John Carmack actually play games?
|Yeh, of course. Why wouldn't he?|
|Nah, he spends too much time coding to actually play em.|
Results from 04/07/97: 27 Yes, 17 No
Fargo: Picture this: Secretly, when nobody's around, he turns off all the lights and plays Duke Nukem with the sound turned way down. He feels kinda ashamed by it, right? He feels dirty. But after a few minutes, he's like, "Yeah, COME GET SOME!" "Shake it, baby!" "Damn I look good!"
Mix: Hey Carmack, want to make an offer on my vintage Sonic 2 T-Shirt?
Moltar: I can't answer this.. I'm still trying to figure out what BLEEAAURRAGH! means.
China: i'\/e haD a lot 0f c0ff33 today.
Dakota: I am willing to bet that John still plays games, but he just doesn't see them the same way that everyone else does. He looks at the screen and just sees his sweet code streaming past. Anyone seen the Matrix?
Bastard: That's like asking if auto designers drive cars. Hmmm. I think we all know what Carmack is going to do next!
crispy: Hmmm...more yes's than no's once again. Just a whole lot more answers :)
