Week of September 28th, 1998
Have you bought Quake II Mission Pack II : Ground Zero yet?
|Not yet, but I'm planning to|
|Didn't know it was out|
Fargo: Not a big Mission Pack crowd, hunh?
What do you have your mouse sensitivity set to in Quake II?
|What the hell are you talking about?!?|
Gestalt: Um .. what's the default?
Fargo: Just fast enough to keep it from leaking over the mouse pad.
What FOV setting do you use?
|I adjust it as I play|
|Now I'm really confused...|
Gestalt: Try setting your FOV to like 180 and it looks really trippy. Um... Yeah.
Fargo: I use 90 all the time. I'm a minority around the PQ headquarters, here...
Do you ever play the Mod of the Week?
|Religiously, every single week|
|Usually I'll give it a go|
|Sometimes if it looks good|
|Never, I only deathmatch the way id intended|
|I never heard of Mod of the Week|
Gestalt: I don't get to try out as many mods as I'd like to, but I'm willing to try anything once... Within reason.
Fargo: Sometimes Mod of the Week just needs more servers.
Do you use PPMs in Quake II?
|I only use the standard (male / female) models|
|Only the crackwhore / cyborg|
|I use PPMs all the time|
|What the hell is a PPM? Is that legal?|
|I don't play Quake II|
Gestalt: I'm a PPM addict. If I had the hard drive space and a T1 I'd download 'em all... You gotta love them. Where else could you see SouthPark characters, robots, marines, anime girls and dinosaurs fighting?
Fargo: That damn AstroBoy model must die.
What kind of sound system do you use with your computer?
|The tinny speakers that came free with my PC|
|A cheap pair of headphones|
|Good stereo speakers|
|Good surround sound speakers|
|A hi-fi amplifier and speakers|
|A home theatre system|
Gestalt: A nice new surround sound speaker system courtesy of the nice folks at Creative Labs.
If you're still using those tinny 5W speakers that were squashed in the bottom of the box when you bought
the computer, you're probably doing yourself permanent hearing damage... ;-)
Fargo: I used to be real proud of my ACS-490 speakers until I came to the BeatDown and some freak had the $600 Bose.
What gender are you?
|Haven't looked lately, don't interrupt my game!|
|What's it matter?!|
Gestalt: Ugh. That's scary...
Fargo: What? Only 1800 males?
Gestalt: What do you mean ONLY 1800?
What's your favourite CTF rune (um .. powerup)?
|Any rune is a good rune|
|Depends on the map / situation|
|I don't need no runes - I have m4d 5k1llz|
|I don't play CTF|
Gestalt: Regeneration is cool, but it tends to make me think I'm invulnerable... "Can't kill me, can't kill me!" .. *SPLAT* .. "DAMN YOU!"
Fargo: For Quake II it's all about the Autodoc. In Quake I it was Strength for defense and resistence for flag runs -- Aw yah.
