CTF what item do you go for first?
|Techs, I got to get that damn AutoDoc!
|Gimme the power shield - there's something
kewl about glowing green.
|Ammo, ammo, and more ammo, get it while it
|Quad control is the key to conquering the world!
|I dont care, I'm still trying to figure out
how to use the grappling hook.
|CTF?!? What is that, some kind of root beer
Sluggo: Power Amp, baby!
Moltar: I make a quick dash for the bathroom, I have a small bladder.
Fargo: It's all about the Autotech.
Mix: I go for the console. I must bind "pweened" to a key right away.
Lowtax: The next idiot that says "pweened" gets punched in
shaithis: I think CTF is actually a prune-based drink, much like Dr Pepper.
Prunes are a staple in many diets, however I find them disturbing, and do not
wish to talk about them further.
How ticked off are you that Q3 won't run without a 3D card?
|Really frustrated, because I still don't have one.|
|Annoyed, because I had to go buy one.|
|Not much, since I already bought one for Q2.|
|I could care less, my computer came with one.|
|I don't intend on playing Q3.|
Sluggo: If you don't have a 3D card by now, what are you doing here? ;-)
Moltar: I'm so ticked that it is usually the only thing I contemplate when I'm in the bathroom.
Fargo: Remember the way you felt when Doom wouldn't run on your 386? Did it really matter? ;)
Mix: I thought they were given out at birth now... "Mrs. Smith, you have a beautiful baby boy... and a TNT."
shaithis: I've had a 3D card for almost as long as I've had a PC cabable
of running software Quake1, so I don't mind much.
Lowtax: Does a Virge count as a "3D" card? Or is it more like
What is the hardest part of deathmatches?
|Getting to the weapons.|
|Getting to the ammo.|
|Getting your computer to avoid crashing when connecting to a server.|
|When you run out of lamers to kill.|
|Avoiding killing yourself with your own rocket launcher.|
|I don't deathmatch.|
Sluggo: The part where Lowtax shoots me. That happens a lot.
Moltar: The hardest part of deathmatches is not being able to pause the game and use the bathroom during matches.
Fargo: The hardest part is controlling the level -- making sure Lowtax
doesn't get the rocket launcher, and then yelling, "Pweened!" just to tick him
Lowtax: I warned ya about saying that, bitch!!! (fistikuffs ensue)
Fargo: Ow! I'll never say such an obviously idiotic word such as "pweened"
ever again, Lowtax! Especially not when you're in charge of the polls! By the
way, you are a very handsome man.
Mix: Not dying.
shaithis: Trying to console myself after getting the living christ beaten out of me by CRT and some of the others around here.
Video games are getting a bad rap lately in society. Is it justified?
|HELL YES! I played Carmageddon and now I'm in jail for vehicular manslaughter!|
|HELL NO! It relieves my stress and keeps me from doing the things I do in the game to my boss!|
|Must... clean... gun...|
|This is too deep for a PQ poll question.|
Moltar: I busted out a bad rap once... but I was in the bathroom and
nobody heard it.
Lowtax: You do way too much in the bathroom, Moltar. I just write
my columns there.
Fargo: This is definitely the most scientific survey ever done on the subject.
Mix: If I couldn't play Quake, I would have listen to my talking poodle Sandy and killed 400 people by now. Sandy has a temper.
shaithis: Society has a need to lay blame, and rarely likes to lay it on themselves. Thus, entertainment media often falls "under the gun" so to speak. It's pathetic that people cannot accept responsibility for their own actions, and those of their children. Hmm... that was too deep for a poll answer, wasn't it?
How do you define "lag"?
|When you press the forward button and you don't go forward until half a second later.|
|When everything's all jerky.|
|When everything stops to bow down to the Phone Jack of Doom, and when the game starts again I'm dead.|
|When wierd things happen ("I SWEAR I dodged that rocket, damnit!").|
Moltar: Lag is that thing that happens when you think you need to pee and then can't so the feeling goes away... and then once you return to your desk that feeling comes back for real.
Fargo: It's lag when I'm losing. ; )
Mix: Lag is whatever is keeping me from winning.
shaithis: Lag is anything over a 60 ping. hee hee! I'm so spoiled.
Lowtax: Screw lag, it's all about the Zbots.
What do you do when you're not playing Quake?
|Take a nice stroll in the park with my gal (or guy).|
|Think of new ways to frag people in Quake.|
|Think of ways to frag people in quake and take a stroll in the park at the same time.|
|You mean i don't have to play Quake all the time? |
|But the w4r3z site i got Quake from said i had to keep playing it or a l33t ha><0r pr0gr4m would delete my entire hard drive!|
Sluggo: Not playing Quake?
Moltar: Drink lots of water.
Fargo: I walk around doing a cheesy Doctor Evil impression until Lowtax
finally hauls off and slugs me. : )
Lowtax: Fargo, all of your impersonations are cheesy!
Mix: Sandy doesn't like me to leave the house.
shaithis: Work, or sleep. Between those two, and Quake, you've pretty much covered my day.
