What's the worst thing abour Q3A so far?
|It requires a god damn video card!|
|It might be released for Linux/Mac first!|
|It wont run on my 486!|
|It's not out yet.|
|One word - Lag!|
Cobby: Need more maps released ASAP.
crt: Q3A is great... some stuff needs tweaking (like the over-abundance
of smoke and effects) but the gameplay is great.
China: Suck-ass frame rate on my machine.
Fargo: The worst thing is the way crt smacks me like his little bitch
whenever we play.
CenCheerio: I don't care about Q3, I'm just waiting for "Battle
of The Sexes" to be ported to Q3.
pharcyde: No comment. ;-)
FL0W3R: I hate it when I fall of the edge. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Splat!

it's renovation, not innovation!

What do you think of Generations shutting down?
|I bought all id's games, I think I deserve
|I hax0red all id's games, I think I deserve
|I'm planning to buy id's old games, so they
shouldn't shut it down.
|I'm not interested in Generations, but I think
it should exist.
|I'm not interested in Generations, and I don't
care what happens to it.
|I'm not interested in Generations, I think
it should be shut down.
|Id is justified in asking to close down Generations.
Cobby: I'll miss it - loved seeing my CrakHor kill QuakeGuy!
crt: Frankly I'm supprised they didn't see it coming. We looked into
doing coversions of Q1 maps for RA2, and that got shot down pretty fast.
China: Generations was a lot of fun; I wish id wouldn't have shut them
Fargo: The best part of Generations is when Captain Kirk met Captain
CenCheerio: Hell I think id should have offered them a contract to make
it for them so it could be released
pharcyde: Not nice to go back on one's agreement - all I have to say.
FL0W3R: I think they sould "Stick it to THE MAN"
shaithis: This just doesn't feel like the old, fan-friendly id.
Moltar: Ahh Lawyers... so many of them an so few cannons to shoot them
Darx: I'm gonna miss it! Nothing light putting the lightning gun to a
Sluggo: I understand the legal issues, but it's still a shame that they
couldn't continue the mod as it was.
Lowtax: It's a shame... LeeMon and the rest of the Gen team are great
How do PC Quakers feel towards Mac Quakers?
|They welcome the introduction of the Mac community into the PC world of Quaking.|
|They just think that there will be a lot more easy targets to frag!|
|They treat them like any other person playing Quake, and hope that the best fragger wins.|
|Macs aren't worth the silicon (and colored plastic) they're made of.|
Cobby: More Gamers is a good thing - more targets
crt: hehe.. one button mouse.. hehe
Fargo: The new Macs are like juicy, juicy fruit. GET IN MEH BELLY!!!
CenCheerio: I hate macs, I do not use them. I really do not care what
platform someone I am playing with/against is on though.
pharcyde: just more frags ;-)
FL0W3R: You mean, there are Amish gang wars?
shaithis: Oooh 666 votes. spooky.
Lowtax: Shai, maybe you shouldn't comment on the number of votes before
the poll closes... ; >
Moltar: Ahh Macs... so many of them and so few cannons to shoot them
Darx: I feel sorry if they have to use those puck mice...
Sluggo: Mo' Quakers, even Mac Quakers, is good Quakers.
What do you prefer your quake theme to be?
|Medieval with present day weapons / blood and guts (Quake 1)|
|Present day military with weapons from that genre / toned down blood and guts (Quake 2)|
|Space oriented with all blaster type weapons from the future / again toned down blood and guts.|
|Something else, involving pointy sticks and bottles of mustard.|
Cobby: The future is where it's at baby!
crt: Modern Day, with Quake 1 style fantasy weapons.
China: Sticks and mustard? nah, I'm voting for pointy sticks and ketsup!
Fargo: Realistic weapons are being done in games all over the place,
I bet we're going to see games swing back to the futuristic stuff again soon.
CenCheerio: I like realistic weapons, Team Action Quake Rocks!
pharcyde: Big guns that have a purpose and lots of blood and guts - GIBS!!!
FL0W3R: A blow torch and a pair of pliars gettin' Midieval on yo ass!
shaithis: I am so sick of present-day military weapons. SO SICK! BLEEEURAAAAGGH!
Moltar: Aww cannons... so few of them to shoot so many Medieval guys
with Present Day weapons into Space with.
Darx: I like the Quake2 style but something a bit more gladiator-ish.
Sluggo: I hate medieval. And brown. And gray. Some mustard would be nice,
Which "Planet" site do you see as the portal for all other Planet sites?
|I dreamed about Pikachu last night...|
|There are other planets? Whoah, where's my blaster?!?|
Cobby: PQ is the one ;-)
China: Well, duh. of course we're all going to vote for PQ!!
Fargo: PlanetQuake is the way, the means, and the light. The alpha and
the omega. The beginning and the end. An excuse to keep Lowtax away from small,
CenCheerio: I like the blue oval one from Diablo
pharcyde: WWW.GAMESPYDER.COM!!!! YEAH!! oh wait...or GameSpy.com =)
FL0W3R: GameSpy or PlanetStevens.
shaithis: I dreamed about Rai-Chu last night, but a properly trained
one, not one of those Rai-Chu's that's evolved too quick and hasn't learned
all of the Pikachu moves. I mean...come on...that'd be crazy.
Lowtax: A crispy evolves at level 18 and becomes a shaithis. It's special
attack is the feared "Lightning Complain".
Moltar: Coming soon to a web browser near you.. the In My Pants Network.
Sluggo: Ummm...Mod Central? No, I didn't think so. ;-)
