are you with the constant Q3ATest updates?
|Highly, downloading 30 meg files takes a lot of time!|
|Yahh, the file is big but the download is worth it.|
|It doesn't matter to me, I am an LPB.|
|I am really annoyed but I will keep getting the latest versions.|
|Thats it! I am just waiting until the game comes out!|
Fargo: It's a test, so I don't mind. If it was the official demo or
something, I'd want them to get their act together, but as it is I don't mind
debugging what they clearly state is a test version.
Fragmaster: I'm more annoyed by the constant mockery of my lack of knees.
Sluggo: I'm more annoyed with the fact that I downloaded 1.08 and half
the servers were still running 1.07.
Lowtax: If it's a test, when do I find out if I passed or not? Or is
it like a pregnancy test; "Congratulations, Mrs. Johnson, it's a Sarge!"
Is it cheating to set the gamma settings on your 3D card and/or the color and/or the light setting in Quake to see what's in the shadows?
|Shadows? I run software mode, damn it!|
Fargo: It's in the game, so I wouldn't call it cheating. "Unsportsmanlike" would be a better word. Like, dammit man, GET SOME SKILLZ!
radium: No, people shouldn't be hiding anyway.
Fragmaster: Yes. And it makes the game look like duck crap, too.
Sluggo: What? I can't even play with my brightness now?
Lowtax: You can't play with your what, Sluggo?
What best describes who you are?
|Student (junior high school or below).|
|Student (high school).|
|Blue collar worker.|
|The guy that visits your mom every night.|
Fargo: It's good that a site with often juvenile humor attracts more
than just the Jr. High crowd. Oh, wait, they all answered the mamma joke response...
Lowtax: My humor isn't juvenile, it's "maturely impaired".
Sluggo: Sluggo. GameSpy guy.
What happened to last week's poll?
|Never got produced.|
|Moltar ate it.|
|Lowtax had it, but lost it at QuakeCon.|
|It's in Lowtax's pants.|
|There's a poll on PQ now?|
Fargo: Lowtax's pants remain an enigma surrounded by a mystery shrouded in doubt. But this might help shed some light.
radium: It's invisible!
Fragmaster: There's a lot of room in Lowtax's pants (according to Radium),
so that's probably it.
Lowtax: Frags, you're too obsessed with my pants. For the last time,
"no means no"!
Sluggo: It's still partying at QuakeCon in room 621. :)
Do you think the rockets in Q3A are too slow and useless for ranged attacks now?
|Nah, the rocket launcher is for weenies anyways.|
|Nope, I still got mad rocket launching skillz.|
|Yup, it's even worse than the rockets in Quake 2!|
|Hell yeah, I'd rather use the gauntlet!|
Fargo: It's good because now you gots to switch weapons before taking out the camper.
radium: Maybe not too slow, but it's really easy to see one coming.
Fragmaster: They're fine, especially considering how well they worked
when I smacked Lowtax down so hard at Q3Test2 the other night that he gave up
and shut down the server...
Lowtax: There Fragmaster goes again, spreading lies and myths. Open up
a window in your office, Frags, the paint fumes are making you hallucinate.
Sluggo: No, the problem is *I'm* too slow and useless for effective attacks.
Would you like to see a lot of teamplay modes built into Q3A, like Unreal Tournament?
|Yeah, teamplay rocks!|
|Yes, but don't go overboard.|
|OK, but only CTF.|
|Nah, I'm a plain DM freak!|
|There are no such thing as "teammates" in Quake! Everybody's cannon fodder!|
Fargo: Teamplay is the way to go, IMHO. Hey, that rhymed...
radium: Teamplay is good, so stop playing with yourself.
Fragmaster: Yes, especially teamplay modes that involve cabbage.
Sluggo: Any chance of Q3APong?
Lowtax: Why are my teammates always idiots? No wait, that's just me.
