What's the best
way to humiliate your opponent in Q3:Atest?
|Killing them with the gauntlet while they have quad damage and the rocket launcher.|
|Being able to telefrag them. Its fricken hard to do in q3:a so having the talent to have no talent must be extra humiliating!|
|Killing them while typing. |
|Landing on their head causing them to crater. You mean thats not a pogo stick?|
|Submitting very odd poll questions to Planetquake.|
radium: I usually degrade to lame "your mother" jokes, but that's just me.
Mix: Fragmaster does a pretty good job humiliating himself on his own. Just watch him play sometime.
Fargo: How about when you race for the red armor, and you get it, and blast them with a shotgun while standing on the armor they wanted so bad. Oh that feels good.
shaithis: Cratering always makes me cackle with mad glee
Do you ever listen to the Quake 2 soundtrack?
|Yeah, all the time, everywhere I go!|
|Yup, but only when playing.|
|Nah, I listen to other music while playing.|
|Nope, I never listen to the soundtrack.|
radium: No, Im too hooked on the Beetlejuice soundtrack.
Mix: There was a soundtrack?
Lowtax: My religion, the Mind Heads, strictly prohibit me from listening
Fargo: The Q2 soundtrack never really stuck with me.
shaithis: I don't like listening to music while deathmatching. It's too
hard to hear what the other players are doing
pharcyde: "Nope, I never listen to the soundtrack.: 1248 "
How do you feel about your enemies being marked by those big yellow triangles in team DM in Q3:Atest?
|I love it! I'm a stupid llama and it helps me not shoot my teammates.|
|I love it! It gives me headstart on killing the enemy.|
|I hate it! I can't camp in the shadows anymore.|
|They've got the right idea, but dem triangles gots ta go.|
|WTF are you talking about? Team play is for pussies.|
radium: I'd rather them be marked with dodecahedrons.
Mix: It's still not enough for most people. What do we need, big flashing
signs that say, "SHOOT ME!"?!?
Fargo: Perfect! It's like, "Put da rail here, please!"
shaithis: I don't really think they're necessary. Skin color should be
more than enough for anyone who's smarter than a trained chimp.
Lowtax: So we'll need something better than skin color distinction for
pharcyde: WTF are you talking about?...
Do you invert your mouse while playing Quake?
|I don't use the mouse.|
radium: Yeah, but it usually works better with the buttons facing up.
Mix: Whichever way I like it is the right way. Period. Now go away.
Fargo: THAT many people play with upside-down-mousedanadage? You people are sick.
shaithis: Hmm...just like every single time we've run this question,
the results are about a 2/3rds split. Friends don't let friends invert!
Lowtax: I use an iMac mouse, I can't tell which way is "up".
Which processor do you plan on buying?
|AMD Athlon (K7)|
|AMD K6, K6-2, K6-3|
|Pentium, Pentium II, Pentium Pro|
|I don't plan on buying any processors. I'm sending all my hard-earned cash to the "Let's Buy Lowtax a Boat" foundation.|
radium: In the future, processors will be replaced by intelligent low-fat meat substitutes.
Mix: Whatever's cheapest and fastest. I like my processors like I like my women.
shaithis: The more accurate question is: Why CPU am I planning on having
GameSpy buy for me? MUAHAHAHA!
Lowtax: Gamespy bought me a beer once. I poured it in my computer, but
it didn't seem to make it any faster.
pharcyde: 468DX -6 with a touch of butter.
Have you ever tried to chat up a female player whilst in the middle of a Quake game?
|Yeah baby, I am a hunk of burning love.|
|Are you freakin crazy? They could be anyone.|
|Women play quake? Are you sure?|
|I don't need girls, I know the address of Lowtax's secret goat porn site.|
|I am a girl, why isn't there a selection for "I try to chat up guys in the middle of a Quake game"? I am deeply offended.|
|I try to chat up guys in the middle of a Quake game.|
|Oh, there it is, I see it now, thanks.|
|Hey, want to go out and grab something to eat after this poll?|
radium: No, I usually only hit on cyborgs. Theyre so sweet.
Mix: Umm.. No. I try to keep some inkling of dignity. Which isn't easy.
Fargo: Ohh baby, lemme put my rail. That triangle above your head accentuates your hips. Your map or mine? I love the way your ass moves when you strafe. C'mon, why don't you and I head over to the jump pad?
shaithis: I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't find the Quakeguy
model to be particularly romantically inspiring, regardless of what skin it's
Lowtax: Let me show you what's in my pants...
pharcyde: They always bend my wooky =(
