Has gaming ever shown through in your real life? [submitted by PQ]
|People at work still don't get my Quake t-shirt. They do put coins in my pen cup though.|
|Grabbed the last loaf of bread at the grocery store screaming "owned!" at the old guy who was just too slow.|
|Pointing imaginary rail or RL at ignorant drivers. Beep, railed!|
|Sat thinking about trick jumps you could do at the mall.|
|Sunk your teeth into a Mickey D's McAnything only to realize you now know what gibs taste like! With zombie sauce!|
|I actually said "LOL"...outloud!|
Pappy-R: I wouldn't say it's crossed into real life for me at all. I'm working on getting a crosshair and HUD on some contact lenses for a completely different reason.
a madman: Well, I've gone to Quakecon. That involves driving hundreds of miles to spend a chunk of the hottest part of August in Texas. If that isn't a sign of Quake-related brain damage I don't know what is.
Jube: I've never actually said anything out loud, but in my head I regularly "LOL!". Of course in my head I also have friends and a sex life. ;)
IceStorm: I've used the term "Owned". It actually scared me
f4nt0m45: I tend to acidentally say "pwn3d" from time to time, I swear it's just a recurring accident!
Marauder: Yes, I actually have dreams of crossing battlefields and picking off enemies at long ranges... *sigh*
What is the best thing about Quake 2 Vortex? [submitted by haNniBaL]
|The RPG elements, der...|
|The Demon class! Plague 0wnz j00|
|The Controller class, ph33r the Chicks!|
|Cacodemons! Q1 looking things in Q2 is just genious...|
|The sword! The way it glows... -drules-|
|WTF IS VORTEX?!? /me says "a quake2 RPG mod with tons of features, der." - www.planetquake.com/vortex :) :) :)|
|Vortex sucks ass... Gimme a break.. GET A LIFE!|
Pappy-R: It's Quake 2, it's got RPG goodness, that's damned near sex already.
a madman: *pleads the 5th*
Jube: Hrmm... I'd have to say my favourite thing is that thing with the thing that does those things.
IceStorm: Old school ass kicking ru13s
f4nt0m45: RPG elements rule, as does Vortex :)
Marauder: Vor what and who?
Someone on a server you're in accuses you of camping, you: [submitted by JethroDude]
|Give a lame excuse and find a new hidey-hole|
|Can you say "humiliation"?|
|Core his head with a glowing rail. |
|Rocket jump off his head. |
|Kill him and only him for the duration of the round.|
Pappy-R: Silly rabbit! Your bunny butt is mine for the rest of the night.
a madman: If it's a TF server, it's probably because I just shot them in the head... so I'll do it a few more times to drive the point home. Quake, on the other hand, is too fast to camp.
Jube: If someone accuses me of camping it's probably because I am. :o Where ever there's a stair well, I'll be hiding under it. Where ever there's a dark corner I shall be found cowering.
IceStorm: Jump to gauntlet and ground his ass into a red paste
f4nt0m45: Camping?! I have never camped! Well, ok maybe a couple times, but I was never caught.
Marauder: Tell him you also steal babies in the night.
If you could go on a hunting rampage what would your weapon be? [submitted by Echimongetchi]
|Railgun allll the way|
|Nailgun,I like too fix things|
|Blaster blaster blaster!|
|Ch Cha Cha Chaingun|
|BFG 9000. Are you feeling good, buddy? Because you're green |
|Lighting gun, t makes Zeus look sissy!|
Pappy-R: Never rampage. Thought, skill and rails slugs are what you need.
a madman: Meh. You can't rampage properly without high explosives, damnit.
Jube: Boobies. I've been wielding them for more years than I care to mention, and I'm sure I can undo a bra quicker than any of you n00bs. :p
IceStorm: A picture of Pappy-R. It's like medusa's head. Kills everything in its path.
f4nt0m45: That's a hard decision... I think I'd need the multi-purpose Quake Army Gun so I could use my rockets, plasma, and lightning!
Marauder: Those poor, poor deer. :( You bastards.
Were you naughty this year and downloaded the Doom 3 Alpha? [submitted by Mr. Lake]
|No way, I'd like...go to jail forever man!|
|No, I'm saving myself for marrige (me and D3 walkin' down the isle).|
|I got the Q3A IHV Test! Wha? There's a Doom 3?|
|Maybe I did...maybe I didn't....yeah, I did.|
|I couldn't help myself, I wanted to see if it would run on my lame video card.|
|1 4/\/\ l_337 |-|4><0|2 !!! I will finish the Doom 3 engine before Carmack does! MWA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!|
Pappy-R: I was a good boy Santa! Now bring me the full version of the game damn it!
a madman: Heaven forbid! I got someone else to download it for me, and I just watched.
Jube: Nein. No leakage for me. Even if my machine could run it, I'd still want to wait for the final product.
IceStorm: Even if I found a place to get it from, my low end system couldn't run the opening screen probably.
f4nt0m45: I was too lame to actually be able to find a plausible download location, thus I never grabbed it.
Marauder: Well, duh.
What do you listen to when fragging? [submitted by PQ]
|Just in-game sounds, I need to concentrate! |
|Heavy Metal gets the blood pumpin'!|
|Pass the Disco please (stayin' alive, stayin' alive!)|
|Country & Western (I also wear buttless chaps)|
|Rap to get in touch with my inner-homeboy/girl|
|Classical music steadies my rail |
|My significant other whining in the background|
Pappy-R: The sounds of wet meat hitting the floor. Was that you or me again?
a madman: Normally it's just gibs and rockets. Occasionally I'll listen to bands you've never heard of, but if I'm in a sniping mood it's classical.
Jube: I pretty much need all the concentration I can get, but every now and again I'll crank up the ABBA and disco myself to death.
IceStorm: Iron Maiden gets my blood reeling. I only listen to real music by people that write their own music, write their own songs, play their own instruments. Not some corporate crap they put out today. It's a good thing I'm not bitter.
f4nt0m45: Usually just the in-game sounds for me, but I do have a mp3 playlist composed for fragging which includes punk, metal, and rap *gasp!*
Marauder: My clanmates bitching and complaining on Roger Wilco for the most part. ;)
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.
