Which old skooler would you most like to see back doing their thing in the Quake community?
Pappy-R: Too many choices...brain heating up...must...
a madman: I think I'm going to have to go with Hellchick. Astrophysics and Quake go together like peas and carrots.
Jube: All of the above! Uhm, unless it means I'd be getting the boot from PQ, in which case I'd have to give that a bit of a re-think. ;)
f4nt0m45: Definitely Mynx.. Who didn't absolutely love Dear Mynx?
IceStorm: Probably Zoid. That dude's a freak of nature. Plus he's fun to laugh at.
Charred cow flesh patty goes best with...[submitted by PQ]
|Cheese! It ain't easy being this cheesey!|
|Bacon baby! It's all about the pig and cow.|
|Yuk! Gimme a carrot you sicko|
|Bacon and cheese! I can hear my arteries hardening already|
|Quake! Everything goes better with Quake|
|All of the above, except that damned carrot!|
Pappy-R: I'll take cheese, bacon and a healthy side of Quake with that cow thank you!
a madman: I take my carbonized cow with chili and cheddar. Mmm, chili cheeseburger.
Jube: Blech. I've always been a meat lover, but this poll question turns me right off the whole concept. Anyone want a bite of my carrot?
f4nt0m45: Bacon and cheese, with a side of grease! I just can't clog this arteries fast enough.. Now pass me a cig and a beer.. I'll die of cancer by 25!
IceStorm: All of the above, plus a baked potato with a gallon of butter and a straw.
Do you chat frag? [submitted by Korozive]
|Never - Good God no!! (If I did I wouldn't sleep for a week.)|
|I try not to, but accidents happen|
|Sometimes ( If there in the line of fire...well..oopsy.)|
|YES! You want to chat, then go spectate.|
|ALWAYS! I skinned the chat bubble to look like a bullseye with an arrow pointing down ..muahahahah|
Pappy-R: If it do it's only my catlike reflexes reacting to a presence and...Oh hell, if it's there I shoot it, sorry.
a madman: Unlike Pappy, my catlike reflexes are so amazing I can not only kill people, I can choose not to kill if I so desire. So usually I'm, you know, trying to miss. To give other people a chance.
IceStorm: I have to...it's the only way I can get a frag that's not based on dumb luck.
Jube: tee hee, I try not to, but I kinda get off on it when it does happen. ;)
f4nt0m45: Only on accident.. Unless of course it's someone way better than me, then they just deserve it.
Chick Grudge! Which female game character would come out on top? [submitted by PQ]
|Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)|
|Cate Archer (NOLF)|
|Helga von Bulow (RtCW)|
|Jan Ors (JKII)|
|Female Commando (UT)|
Pappy-R: I'm a firm believer in the power of Helga!
a madman: That scary chick with the robot eyes in Deus Ex. Come on, she's got scary robot-vision!
Jube: Eeep. Hrm. It's down to Athena (Q2) and Helga von Bulow (RtCW). Regardless of Helga's bulk, Athena just kicks much ass. I'm going with Athena for the win. Q2 RL baybee, can't go wrong.
IceStorm: All of them. I like chicks on top!
f4nt0m45: Well let's see... Cate Archer, there's nothing sexier than a super
secret spy in a skirt.
Do you currently compete in any Quake leagues / ladders? [submitted by PQ]
|Yes, but it's not listed.|
|No, I don't like to compete.|
|Online Gaming League|
|Stronger Than All|
Pappy-R: Getting ready to try some flag snaggin' on a ladder or two real soon. It should be reasonably chewy.
a madman: I'm a slacker and I'm proud of it.
Jube: None here... but I did play in the OGL for many years, and also helped run it for a few years. Outside of that, tournaments only.
IceStorm: I'm not good enough to even reach the bottom rung.
f4nt0m45: I live at ProvingGrounds.com. The staff's excellent, the competition's fierce, and everyone just has a good time. I've yet to stumble across a ladder system that's as flawless.
If you were to get a tattoo of a Quake logo, where'd it go? [submitted by JethroDude]
|Classic bicep, flex and it goes from one to two!|
|Chest, more room|
|Back, make my spine the center of the Q3 logo|
|Butt, why not?|
|Forehead, what are you staring at?|
Pappy-R: No tats here. The logo was burned into my brain though, as per the job requirments at PQ.
a madman: I'd tattoo my cat... and no, that's not a metaphor or euphamism for anything. Sickos.
Jube: I object on the grounds that there are missing body parts! I'd probably get it on my ankle. In fact... maybe I will get one on my ankle. Hmm... *ponders*
IceStorm: I'd get a tattoo on my Jube.
f4nt0m45: I'd kinda like to get all three logos tatooed on my head. One on the left and right, then one on the top.. Then I'd have to shave my head though, yuk.
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.
