200
4.7%

kaaos: dude I will circle strafe rail jump yo' ass on a dime. put the rail!
Fargo: Look! His neuralkinetics are off the scale!
Darx: Sure. I mean nothing is more annoying than when you're running around The Edge and some dork just has to get by you and you end up shooting your teammate in the back of the head in RA2 instead of railing that mofo all the way across the map.
Cobby: know yes - have the ability no
crt: Yes.. and I now find myself doing it in Q1 as well (where all it does is give away your position)
FL0W3R: Last week we had a foot race at the office. It was Budah Cat Stevens vs. Kornelia. All I am saying is, He would have beat her if she wouldn't have strafe jumped across the finish line. HE'S A CAT! GIVE HIM A BREAK FOR CHRIST SAKES!
dakota: I am blessed with knowledge of all things.
BreadTooth: yeah. you can usually see me use this strategic move at a Beatdown when I hear the Jager shots being poured!
Dakkon: Is that like a bungie jump?
Bastard: People keep talking about doom around here like it's "amazing". Bitch, Please! QUAKE IS THE GAME. DOOM WAS FUN. DO NOT COME OVER TO THE OFFICE AND SUGGEST THAT WE ALL BUST OUT DOOM, ZDOOM OR GLDOOM OR WHATEVER. Just had to get that off my chest.
crispy: uh...you okay there, Bastard?

kaaos: Quake naked? I'm in the my office naked right now!
Darx: In boxers as the shower heats up in the morning.
Cobby: large breasted women should not quake topless - they get in the way ;-)
crt: It must be one of those "everyone's doing it but no one will admit it" type things.. not that I do it... often..
FL0W3R: I was told that we HAD to play naked! You mean we have a choice?
dakota: With the aid of my X-Ray specs, everyone looks naked to me.
BreadTooth: put your damn clothes back on yo.... sheesh
Dakkon: I love the smell of Bastard when he's freshly showered.
Bastard: Once a month we have "naked day" at the pq offices. On naked day everyone comes in naked and it's a great "equalizer". You should try it sometime. Of course, visitors are welcome as well.
crispy: hmmm...remind me to call in sick for naked day. Btw - I didn't get a single "naked quake" question submittal this week. werd.

kaaos: Quake 3 may be cool, but I'm not gonna be naked for it.
Fargo: These questions are REALLY confusing me, Crsipy.
Darx: It is overhyped and i think mod development is going to make or break it.
Cobby: am I the only one tired of hearing "Is it out yet" "will it work on my system" "why did they release mac first" ?????
crt: It's puuuuuuurty.. almost too purty.. hope they don't sacrifice gameplay for fancy smoke trails
FL0W3R: Why you want to dis me ho?
dakota: Q3A will be a fine game. Fargo will find true love in the next year. The secrets of the ages will be revealed.
BreadTooth: Own3d
Dakkon: * giggle *
Bastard: Heh. q3 already owns me. Jump Pads!!!!!!
crispy: I didn't write this question, Fargo. A user submitted it. I expect Q3:A to be the best at what it does: plain vanilla deathmatch.

Darx: What the hell is Doom?
Cobby: lets just say I prefer easy
crt: Just the first episode..
FL0W3R: This is Turkey Man, he is 1/2 turkey and 1/2 Evil Knievel. He is the ruler of all monsters. Do not make him angry, you won't like him when he's angry.
dakota: Yes. Doom bows before me. I can predict the moves of the cyberdemon. I knew you were going to ask that question.
Dakkon: I've beaten Doom in my nightmares. owned.
Bastard: DOOM AGAIN? DO NOT COME OVER AND ASK ME TO PLAY DOOM. The last time we played doom it took 30 minutes just to get everyone launched and connected.
crispy: I can predict the moves of the cyberdemon too...all the thing does is grunt, walk and shoot. :)

kaaos: Mission back-Pack-danadage!
Fargo: Doesn't look like people get packs for single-player.
Darx: DM levels
Cobby: price!!!!! (you did say value, right??)
crt: Cool SP levels.. The hipnotic pack was the best one every
FL0W3R: Mission Packs are to Games as 12 packs are to Beers. packs
dakota: The artwork on the box. I am already aware of the new levels and monsters before the pack hits the shelf.
BreadTooth: Cool DM levels and spanky new weapons own me
Dakkon: * wiggle *
Bastard: FILEPLANET.COM has tons of usermade addons for all your downloading pleasure!
crispy: Hmmm...interesting change in results. I still want single-player levels more than anything else, although I have to agree with Mr. Shambler, Quake made for better SP gaming than Q2 does.

kaaos: It would rail the fucker right off the server. Can you I that? 0wn3d!
Fargo: All those people who want to change the rate of fire will be the first jackholes to complain when they get OWNED by someone who knows how to use it.
Darx: I heard it's going to have a radius damage in Q3...lame...I'm not bitter or anything today =)
Cobby: that I and I alone have one
crt: More damage.. at least 110.. having to hit a guy 1X with the railgun is hard enough.. 2X is nearly impossible
FL0W3R: PUT THE RAIL and kneel down to PaPa Fenni!!
dakota: The railgun reminds me of astral projection. I rail, therefore I am.
Dakkon: I want it to show the opponent's face when you rail them in the ass. PUT THE RAIL!
Bastard: Put The Rail!
crispy: Damage. I want a true one-hit weapon...even though I know mostly CRT will just use it to own me.

kaaos: I have a monochrome monitor, they need more green.
Fargo: I'm in it for the style. Lots of games are like, RED! GREEN! BLUE! ORANGE! PURPLE! And that's just in the first room.
Darx: Already has enough color...leave bright colors to Unreal.
Cobby: enough colors to be good eye candy, but not too many to be laggy
crt: Most colorful game ever!
FL0W3R: it looks pretty
dakota: I wear sunglasses and play in the dark...I am only aware of the colors on a deeper level.
Dakkon: More colors? Awww yeah! Make it look like a disco rave!
crispy: I'm so tired of id games being dismissed as "brown and grey". Okay...Quake was, but Quake 2 wasn't. Quake 3 DEFINITELY isn't.
