Week of May 10th, 1999

Now that Q3Test has come out for Linux and Mac before Win95/98, do you consider it a viable gaming platform?

AnswerVotes

Of course they are. That's why I use one of them.

Sure, they're viable. In fact, I'm switching to one of them.
59
2.2%
Yeh, but I'm sticking with my PC.

Linux yes, but not the Mac.

Mac yes, but not linux.

Nah, they're just backwater OS's that appeal to Carmack and a few others.

Mix: Sure, they're viable, but that doesn't mean I'm going to go buy the blue toaster anytime soon.
dakota: Are you using "it" to refer to both platforms? Grammer ain't just something you call your mother's mother.
China: I think all are viable gaming platforms; as long as a Mac has the hardware to support the games, no reason why it shouldn't be used for gaming...
dakkon: I was hoping they would make it for the VIC 20. Damn,
Darx: Looks just as nice and runs just as fast on a Mac...have no clue about Linux.
Moltar: Something is just incredibly wrong having your machines come in different "flavors" like... Grape. That whole penguin thing with Linux just has to end, it's not an icon I can get behind. Sloppy marketing.
Fargo: Somehow PQ needs to woo the MacQuake crowd. Speak up, people!
crispy: Do I need to point out that Dakota corrected my error by misspelling grammar? ;)

China: I can't even remember a time when there was no poll...
Darx: Every time you threaten me crispy.
Moltar: I started answering the poll when the voices inside my head told me to.
Fargo: Pr0n? You're thinking of the PQ "Pole."
crispy: since wampey was hosted on some ISP page.

Do you prefer tactical, strategy-driven DM levels or insane FFA splatter fests?

Shush, I think I can hear someone collecting ammo 13 feet behind me.

I'd use strategy if I could stay alive for more than 2 seconds.

Depends on the number of people/bots I'm playing against.

Depends on which map I'm playing.

I only play on empty servers. I just like to look at the pretty architecture.
51

I don't play DM.

4.8%

Mix: Somehow I do better in a chump-nugget gutfest.
dakota: Splatter Fest, baby. I like my level fast and dangerous...just like my Yugo.
China: Depends on my mood: Friday at 7pm nothing beats an insane splatterfest.
dakkon: It doesn't matter to me because I have PAK9. aww yeah.
Darx: Nothing beats the real twitch-fest of about 20 people on Quake1's dm4.
Moltar: Free For All Splatter Fests are for sloppy players.. nothing but chance kills.. and nothing to do with skill.
Fargo: Strategy!! Strag-geddy! Camping. I mean, strategy.
crispy: strategy and one-on-ones bore me to tears. Give me a splatter-fest any day.

RETRO POLL (05/10/97): If DM4, DM6, etc. were designed by somebody other than a game company and then released on the Internet, would they have been as popular? [NOTE: replace DM4/DM6 with Q2DMx if you want. It's the same question either way - crispy]

Yeh, they still would be just as popular.

Original Results (05/10/97):
Yes: 57
No: 143

Mix: Not sure... I really like DM6, and it doesn't matter who made it, but I don't think it would've gotten as much play if it wasn't id made.
dakota: Only if they supported CTF, baby. ;-)
China: Yes, they are great maps. classic strategic architecture and stuff.
Darx: It may have taken a bit longer but my guess, and hopes, would yes they would have.
Moltar: I think I will replace DM4/DM6 with Q2DMx.. Quake 1 was for slop players.. you hear me!?! SLOP.. no skill chumps.
Fargo: Q2DM1 is a pretty solid level, but I know several DM levels released on the net that woulda been sure hits if they were bundled with the game.
crispy: The masses still agree: They wouldn't. You know they wouldn't. There are plenty of levels that are as good that languish in obscurity.

Which will be the best Deathmatch game?? UTE or Q3a? [stacked question on this site, but wtf. :) -crispy]

They'll both suck.
141
5.2%

Mix: After seeing UT at E3, I'm really looking forward to both.
dakota: It will take a lot of work for either of them to be as cool as QuakeWorld.
China: Both look nice; didn't get a chance to play at E3. I think they'll both be good.
dakkon: Neither! I can't use my l33t PAK9!!
Darx: I saw UTE at E3 and was pretty impressed but my natural Q3A sk1llz lean me toward Q3A =)
Moltar: Q3A feels kinda sloppy at the moment. The delay on the bullet impact sucks and the effects fill up too much of the screen. I have yet to play UT, so your question SUCKS!.. IT'S A SLOP QUESTION!
Fargo: Saw UT at E3 ... prepare to be surprised. This thing was looking pretty hot.
crispy: Q3:A has a lot going for it, but UT's bot AI and gameplay variety are going to be hard to match.

Are you going to E3?

China: E3..... mmmmm... E3... imagine a giant free arcade where you can talk to the ppl that made the game. I can't WAIT til next year!
dakkon: I got 0wn3d at E3.
Darx: I went to, I saw, I got a tan and had fun! Cya next year!
Moltar: I'll take the other option, I want to go to E3 but I'm sitting at home with the Flu. So, take pity on my you SLOP suckers.
Fargo: I'm just in this industry for the booth babes(tm).
crispy: Dude...I covered the whole friggin thing.
