If you could sleep with any Quake III character, which would it be? [submitted by Daedalus]
Pappy-R: None of the above. I refuse to mess up my marriage for a virtual fling...again!
a madman: The one with the least cybernetic attachments. You think cold feet are bad in the middle of the night...
Jube: I have to say that people were kinda disappointed about Crash not making the list. What the heck were you thinking Daedalus? I'm not crazy about the choices but I guess I'll take Xaero, he's got that weird robotic tail thing happening, could make for an interesting encounter. Maybe. Perhaps.
IceStorm: Doom! She's got a great set of can's and she doesn't talk!
f4nt0m45: Where's the love for Slash?! I'd be all over that cyber-punk chick, I mean c'mon nobody can handle a shotty like her... If you know what I mean.
tIKi_mAn: uh duh, Crash. She is a leet warrior and Slash is a Hoe.
Hellchick: I'd have to say Xaero. What can I say, I love bald men...
What is the weirdest thing you've done in a game? [submitted by STDGeneral]
|Pressed the taunt button and faked a game orgy|
|Build a pyramid|
|Drop weapons in lava for no apparent reason|
|Go into the Slimy Place main hall with a blaster|
|Constantly spam your cool webpage while hiding in that empty level area|
Pappy-R: The wierdest thing I've ever done was own somebody who normally trounces me hard. He knows who he is and no, it probably won't happen again so I'll just enjoy the moment and avoid him like the plague.
a madman: other than playing drunk, playing nude, and playing drunk in the nude, I think it was logging onto a roommate's server as "Troy McLure" and kicking ass after about 10 minutes of warming up. The comments about "that cheating bot-using asshole" were priceless.
Jube: Weirdest thing would probably be when I hosted a Q2 server for a few friends, and as a joke I stuck in an Eraser bot and pretended it was me.
IceStorm: Pressed the orgy button and faked a taunt!
f4nt0m45: Weirdest thing? That's a tough one, because so many bizarre things tend to happen when I'm playing, but at least I've never played in the buff!
tIKi_mAn: Make a capture with no resistance only to find that I was really dead in my base. Lag Ugh!
Hellchick: OOH! OOH! I totally did that! I went into the Slimy Place main hall with a blaster! It's like this poll can read my mind wooOOOOOOoooo...
What could tempt you away from Quake? [submitted by PQ]
|Beer always tugs at my heart strings.|
|Reality TV, I admit it, I love it.|
|NOTHING can take me from my sweet Quake.|
|My love of Boobies!|
|Sports, I live it, I need it.|
|I'm a cheap ho, I cheat on Quake regularly.|
Pappy-R: Nothing really. Surprised?
a madman: a shiny piece of foil or some string waved in an interesting manner will usually do the trick.
Jube: As alluring as Quake is, I'd dump it in a New York second for 24 hours with Skeet Ulrich (he's my latest celebrity fling). Of course once he agreed to the 24 hours I'd kidnap him and chain him up in the basement.
IceStorm: Boobies and beer...but then I'd sneak a game of Quake in without them knowing.
f4nt0m45: In all reality, very little seems to tempt me from Quake. I'm absolutely pathetic, even boobies have a hard time distracting me!
tIKi_mAn: There are other things in life than Quake?
Hellchick: Only my husband, Sludge, wearing nothing but a Godiva's chocolate assortment could possibly tempt me away.
After Doom3, what genre games should id Software make? [submitted by Eraser]
|Massively Multiplayer. Carmack could get one million LPB's on one server|
|FIFA 2004. Per-pixel-bumpmap-specular-raytrace-vertex-deformed footballs are the way to go!|
|id Software and First Person Shooter are synonyms. An FPS game it is.|
|A Role-Playing Game. "Quest", wasn't it...?|
|RTS. I want my rail-tank, rocket-tank, shotgun-tank, gauntlet-tank...|
|A Mortal-Kombat style fighting game. Visor's babality move would own.|
|A Second Person Shooter. 2 comes after 1, right?|
Pappy-R: I still think the FPS genre has a long way to go and id should be at the helm. Take me to the river!
a madman: Quest. Quest!
Jube: FPS all the way.
IceStorm: A First Person, Role playing, Mortal Combat style, full body contact ping pong game! Thats the heat baby!
f4nt0m45: I'd almost prefer that they just keep upping the ante in the graphics department.
tIKi_mAn: A role playing game where our role is to kill everything in first person view. I think that would be a winner.
Hellchick: Hmm, were the readers right in guessing id's next game? I'd have to sayyyyggggghrrrrhrrggggh... [
Hellchick: collapses with a dart in her neck]
I love QuakeCon because... [submitted by PQ]
|It's the only place you'll see pasty white guys in thongs.|
|At QuakeCon, geeks are not only accepted, they're worshiped!|
|I've never been, but I'm sure it rocks.|
|People in the BYOC don't bathe much, I like the zesty aroma!|
|I get to be in the same building as the id Software crew.|
|Cold beer and hot chicks!|
Pappy-R: The people, the events, the legends. The pure gaming lust that's present in everyone's bloodshot eyes.
a madman: Stealing Hellchick:'s Bawls is fun, and talking to the guys at id is nice, but the best part by far is watching your computer catch fire! Damn Texas heat, making my PC spontaneously combust...
Jube: I've never been to QuakeCon, but plan to attend this year, and I really hope the pasty white guy in a thong thing wasn't just a one off. QuakeCon definitely needs more guys in thongs running around!
IceStorm: Because it's about 30 minutes away from my house. Hey what can I say..I'm easy that way.
f4nt0m45: I really enjoyed the tournaments from last year, they were quite rush! Well that and the massive amounts of gaming going down in the BYOC.
tIKi_mAn: I hear people play Quake there. It sounds like an interesting game.
Hellchick: It's everything! It's because I feel accepted for who I am, a total geek. *sniff*
Who would win in 1v1 Q3A? [submitted by PQ]
|that stanky old IRC trout|
|fatal1ty (hands tied, must use chin only)|
|Wendle the Monkey Boy|
Pappy-R: Our computer simulation has declared the handicapped fatal1ty would win flawlessly. None of the others were able to get even one frag on any other players. The trout came real close though that one time.
a madman: I think John Romero will actually succeed in making people his bitch this time.
Jube: I'm not sure how the hell I made it into this one, but I'm going with Wendle the Monkey Boy for the win!
IceStorm: Jube, that stanky old IRC trout? tsk tsk
f4nt0m45: I'm thinking the bot set on "Please Don't Hurt Me" is going to take this one with flying colors... Well that or Skeezix.
tIKi_mAn: I would. My 56k leetness has no ends. Its not over till the phone cable melts.
Hellchick: My money's on Jube. I hear she once gutted eleven opponents using just a MOUSE. I don't mean online, I mean actually gutted. And not even with one of those cool Logitech ones, either!
Pappy-R is the PlanetQuake Site Director and ensures that all the coolness on PQ that happens, happens.
Who are these people, anyway?
a madman is the official PQ Content Manager, and when he's not doing that he's insulting people in the Mailbag. It's a good job.
Jube runs the morning shift around here, and posts more news before 9 am than most people do all day.
IceStorm takes care of two things for us - news, and PQ's "excess beer" problem.
f4nt0m45 is the quintessential PQ newsie, dishing out the news and even hammering out the occasional article.
tIKi_mAn ensures that the freshest new levels are available each week in the Level of the Week.
Hellchick decided to give up astrophysics for Quake, and she's never looked back. She used to run things around here, but moved on to a bigger and better things at Activision!
