Did you buy both Q3:A and Unreal Tournament?

Of course - the more FPS', the better!

Just Q3:A, but I'm thinking about buying UT, too.

Just UT, but I'm thinking about buying Q3:A, too.

No, I only bought Q3:A, because Unreal Tournament is for weenie llamas who still wet the bed. Oh, and they camp, too.

31.7%
No, I only bought UT, and now I must pack my things and move before the PQ Mafia gets here to send me to sleep with the fishes, if you know what I mean.

I haven't bought either one.

shaithis: I haven't bought either, yet, for my home system... but GameSpy grabbed them for me here at work. w00p!
Pappy-R: I bought'em both to reserve my right to bitch! Nothing is worse than flames from people who haven't played a game.
Fargo: I play everything. I'm a whore.
Mix: Can't we all just get along!
Hellchick: (Hellchick tries frantically to distract people from noticing that there were less than 100 answers to this and the next two questions due to the poll scripts not working correctly.)
Fragmaster: Yessum. I also bought that Easy Bake Oven game. It is fun.
Lee'Mon: No offense to Epic, but since I bought two copies of Q3A (one to play, one tin box to keep), I didn't have the money for UT. However, I'm getting more enjoyment out of the unopened Q3A box than I would with UT. ;^)
LadyICE: No, I won a copy of both by performing a little dance at the local strip club!

What do you think of Q3:A using the CD key?

Of course - the more FPS', the better!

I think it's a good idea, because someone needs to do something about warezing jerks.

I don't really have an opinion either way.

I think it sucks! Now I have to work harder to haX0r Q3:A with my l33t war3z skillz!

12%
Even though I'm not a l33t haX0r d00d, I still think it's a bad idea for other reasons.

shaithis: CD keys are a ridiculous, ineffective waste of time. They make things obnoxious for the legal users, and the warez-monkeys will always find a way to get around them.
Pappy-R: since I buy multiple copies of games like Q3, I'm all for squashing pirate copies and possibly lowering retail prices.
Fargo: HATE! HATE! ANGER! BURNING SEETHING HATRED!
Mix: I'm not sure why they bother... hAx0rs always find a way...
Hellchick: I've had no problems with it whatsoever, but the recent "denial of service" attack on id sure got everyone's panties in a bunch.
Fragmaster: It would be better if Q3:A used a real key, and you would have to start the game like a car.
Lee'Mon: Gee... anyone guess my opinion already? ;^)
LadyICE: There's a CD key?

Why does the Q3:A shotgun have a lasersight?

AnswerVotes
Percentage
 
Of course - the more FPS', the better!

1.1%
Because it's just that damn cool. Hell, I'll stick a lasersight on my fork!
45
53.5%
Because it's just so crazy, it could work!

5.9%
id's getting some sort of kickback in a business deal with the lasersight industry.
10
11.9%
I have no idea, but it shows that the guys from id aren't exactly members of the NRA.
23
27.3%

shaithis: Because they saw how well Max Payne does beam effects and got jealous.
Pappy-R: Is the laser sight on the fork a joke, cause I have one on my spoon already and was about to do the whole set.
Fargo: Because it's a gentlemen's weapon.
Mix: Because after I'm done shooting people at point blank with it, I can play with my cat. Chase the light Fluffy! Chase the light!
Hellchick: I want eyeglasses with lasersights in them. That'd be COOL.
Fragmaster: Because the shotgun doubles as an eye surgery device.
Lee'Mon: Lasers rock! As my first decree as a PQ staff member, I demand that the weapons from all three Quake games be retrofitted with laser sights. Hell, put a laser sight on Doom's chainsaw, as well.
LadyICE: Is *that* what that pretty red light is?

What bot skill level do you play Q3:A on?

AnswerVotes

"I can win" - my psychologist said that my self-esteem is at a critical low.
357

"Bring it on" - I want to at least PRETEND I'm l33t.
419
9.5%
"Hurt me plenty" - not too hard, not too easy.
1232
28.1%
"Hardcore" - Nightmare level scares me, but this I can deal with.

"Nightmare!" - bring it!!!

shaithis: I played through the game on "bring it on" in two hours, and was usually way ahead of the bots, so I could probably handle "hurt me plenty", and most of "hardcore". I tried Xaero on hardcore tho, and he kicked my ass.
Pappy-R: Hardcore normally, but nightmare to relieve stress after reading UT reviews.
Fargo: I kinda like Hurt me Plenty, but only 'cuz I like to win. I can also do okay on Hardcore, but the bots are less fun because their aim starts to get inhuman.
Mix: Is there a "I'm a scared little boy who wets himself so please don't hurt me" skill level? That's for me.
Hellchick: Hardcore! Even though I just end up sobbing in the corner after every match.
Fragmaster: The bots in Q3:A suck.
Lee'Mon: "Hurt me" when I want a guaranteed win, "Hardcore" when I want a good challenge, and "Nightmare" when I want to turn on God mode and laugh in their faces... "Is that your best?"
LadyICE: Nightmare! Because I'm delusional.

What version of Quake did you buy?

shaithis: When I purchase one, it'll be the cardboard version. As the comments says: It's JUST THE BOX, folks...
Pappy-R: One Tin and one regular at the moment with more on the way. Greed baby, greed!
Fargo: Couldn't find the tin. The rest of the GameSpy gang boughtzored it before I could get to Software Etc. :(
Mix: Tins are for cookies.
Hellchick: I bought the tin version just to be more l33t than Fargo. But then, that isn't hard.
Fragmaster: The version that came with a CD.
Lee'Mon: Like I said, one of each. I saw Jeff K. with a different version... id apparently got sloppy and wrote the "III Arena" part in with a marker.
LadyICE: The l33t tin box...I needed a bigger container to hide my stash.

shaithis: Wow... I totally guessed at this one and got it right (according to Hellchick). I must be leet or something.
Pappy-R: It must be the "dating a Strogg" one. Tip: I married an Iron Maiden, DO NOT DATE Strogg!
Fargo: All of these questions are perfectly valid.
Mix: Underwear is good.
Hellchick: HA! It's the second one, the one that got the least amount of responses! The other three were ones I made up myself. I might use them in the future.
Fragmaster: Grapes are here for you to eat \ eat them geek \ they are a treat \ don't be a freak \ bird's beak
Lee'Mon: I'll take #5, where you guessed Lucy's weight.
LadyICE: Gah! You mean people actually send in poll questions? I just thought Hellchick had nothing better to do in her spare time!
