Weapons of mass destruction, or precision munitions? [submitted by Phoenix]
|Give me a BFG9000 and a lot of people in a crowded room.|
|I prefer to pick my targets off long-range surgical-style, one slug at a time.|
|I like a little of both, waste a crowd then pick off the fleeing survivors.|
|Who cares? It's all good! Just shoot something already!|
Pappy-R: All depends on tha job at hand. Ya don't whip out a Rocket Launcher in a phone booth.
a madman: Au contraire. A phone booth's the best place to use a rocket, because you can't miss. It's all about the high explosives.
Jube: I find that my singing is a bit like a weapon of mass destruction.
After a headphoned jam session with ABBA, I often find dead people in the
Fragmaster: I prefer to hide in a corner and cry while people throw bullets at my head.
PHHucker:: You mean you can frag more than one at a time? w00t!!
Whats the thing you miss the most from the original Quake? [submitted by JethroDude]
|Having a shotty as the primary weapon.|
|How the head in the HUD changed when you got a Quad or Pentagram|
|Having a Pentagram of Protection to pick up|
|Nothing, Q2 and Q3A give me all I need|
|The insane environments to get lost in|
Pappy-R: Miss? As in, not playing it anymore? Wrong! Still play, still love, still drooling along.
a madman: Tiny mods that just did one thing, because it was all so cool and new. Why waste time writing a complete game when there was so much neat stuff to be done? Plus, who could forget the Axe de L'amour?
Jube: I miss everything from Q1, but mostly QuakeGuy himself. He's just so
Fragmaster: The community. Everything was new and exciting back then, and since there was no other online FPS, it was really the only game in InternetTown.
PHHucker:: I miss my 486 the most. NOT!
If you were sentenced to death, and asked to choose, how you would want to die? [submitted by Otacon]
|I wanna know what lava tastes like. |
|Quake2's big mean green blob machine! I can see the light --- aiiiieeee!!!|
|Quadded haste-powered rockets ahoy!|
|I wanna live longer --- gimme a megahealth and shoot me with a blaster!|
|By railgun. Line up, people! (Gotta love that depleted uranium slug goodness!)|
|The classic Lightning Gun. *click* Bzzt! *crackle* Ssss... *sizzle*|
|Is that a Redeemer missile? Wait... that's not from Quake.|
Pappy-R: Get it over with ASAP. Rail to da melon please.
a madman: Old age.
Jube: I'd like to die drowning in a giant vat of chocolate syrup and whipped
cream. In fact, the sooner the better, someone please put me out of my sweet
Fragmaster: I would choose to die like I lived: in the most cowardly and anti-social way possible.
PHHucker:: Doesn't matter as long as I have the Vengance Sphere!
What weapon would you like added to the id collection? [submitted by FuzzyBunny]
|Flamethrower - hehe FIRE! FIRE!BWAHAHAHAHA|
|Energy/Demonic sword - I shall cleave you in twain! |
|Tripple barreled shotgun - two good, three better.|
|Buzzsaw launcher - decapitations are fun.|
|Assault rifle/Grenade launcher combo. |
|Nothing - the guns are perfect already.|
Pappy-R: Flames equal fun. I also think prox mines need to be shown more love.
a madman: I've noticed a serious lack of lasers in Quake games. Come on, I thought everybody loved lasers!
Jube: Flamethrower baybee! Actually, if you count RtCW then it's already in
the "id collection". Guys get to do all sorts of cool things like pee in the
snow, but thanks to RtCW I have a wand to wave too! :o
Fragmaster: A stereo which produces John Carmack beatbox sounds that monsters would freestyle rap over.
PHHucker:: A rare Toledo Salamanca, preferably the one from The Highlander.
For Quake 7, ID develops new technology called Aroma-rama, which imerses you in the smell of their world as well as the sights and sounds. Crash smells like: [submitted by ShadowGhast]
|Splintered bone, curdled flesh and burnt hair.|
|The majesty of a fresh spring morning where the grass glistens with dew in the dawning amber sunlight.|
|Rail slugs. But then -- what do they smell like???|
|Marker pens. |
|Nothing. Aroma-rama's quite improbable, you computer-illiterate fooelle!|
Pappy-R: Gun powder. But then again, I think everything would smell like that in a Quake game.
a madman: Bubble bath. Gotta get clean after being splattered with blood and entrails, after all.
Jube: I picked Xaero for this one, that answer just cracks me right up
Beavis and Butthead style.
Fragmaster: There won't be a Quake 7 because it'd be too hard to make a logo that didn't look retarded.
PHHucker:: Silicon and plastic, with just a hint of lavander.
Jube's biggest problem when speed running in Q1 is...
|Rocket jumping off monsters and living. |
|Lava! It's magnetic or something.|
|Jumping gaps just isn't her thing AIIIEEEEE!|
|Fiends are enough to spoil anyone's day!|
|Not waking the neighbours screaming "Die zombie bastard...die!" |
|Just about everything is a problem to Jubie!|
Pappy-R: Since I made up this question, I think I've done my damage. The girl's got some moves boys!
a madman: ...the fact that she's a few years late? Seriously, though, Q1 speedruns still rock my socks.
Jube: This question is not very nice (PAPPY-R)! Okay, so I didn't know that
zombies keep coming back unless you gib them. So I couldn't complete Pagan.
So I suck. I'm taking my football and going home!
Fragmaster: Wait, people still speed run Q1!?!
PHHucker:: Her biggest problem is Pappy! He won't give her any time off to DO speed runs.
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.
Fragmaster was once a familiar face around here, but now he covers PlanetUnreal and PlanetHalfLife from the GSI offices.
PHHucker runs the thePHHortress.com and rocks the hizouse on weekends with the infamous Friday Night Frag Fest.
