Describe the area where you rock in two words. [submitted by Caesar]
|Bed Sheets (Mind outta the gutter, people!)|
Pappy-R: It's a cross between my love of PC games and the Steelers. My office is my pride and joy and comes with another pride and joy, my beer fridge!
Madman: Smoking crater? Abyssal pit? Decisions, decisions...
Jube: Hello, I'm a woman, I think it's against the rule book to describe things in only two words. Oh what the heck, just don't report me for this... "Drab Dungeon".
IceStorm: Big Windows
f4nt0m45: Ashy mess
Fargo: I rock the hizzouse. Is hizzouse two words, if you draw it out when you say it? What about bo-yeee?
Should id and Activision have Doom 3 commercials on TV and in the movies? [submitted by The Happy Friar]
|Hell yeah! It's be like watching a Doom movie, only not!|
|It's about time to see a PC game commercial! I'm tired of the console ones!|
|I suspose. Commercials just waste my time on the Playbo... USA channel. :)|
|I hate game commercials! They suck!|
|TV? What's TV? I download everything over the net!|
Pappy-R: On TV, sure! If I gotta see a commercial I'd rather it be for something a helluva lot kooler than pimple pads and a ladies...freshness.
Madman: Sure. Why not?
Jube: D3 ads would rock. I love gaming commercials.. and the Playbo erm USA channel too.
IceStorm: What's a commercial? And whats this TV thing I keep hearing about? Bah
Smoking crater? Abyssal pit? Decisions, decisions...f4nt0m45: I don't think gamers really see TV commercials that often, and when they do I don't think they affect the actual sales -that- much, though I could be wrong. But why advertise a game everyone already knows about, and is dying to play?
Fargo: I'm kinda reaching my breaking point with commercials in movies because they're starting to make them delay the feature. In my opinion, they should just hurry up and make the Doom MOVIE. And they should base it on Doom 2, so that the guy runs lightning speed and has a double-barreled shotgun.
How many LAN's do you attend a year? [submitted by PQ]
|One, but it's QuakeCon, so it takes a year to recover.|
|More than one major event per year, but I pace myself. These monitors are heavy|
|Six or more, I'm a fiend and I can't be stopped! No ping and Bawls by the boat load biotch!|
|Does it count as a LAN if I talk on the phone while I hang on a forum?|
|LAN? What is this "LAN" of which you speak?|
|No LAN for me, no boobies for you!|
|I run LAN's therefore I've never really played at a LAN. (All hail the organizers!)|
Pappy-R: A few a year. More is better but travel is a pain. We LAN in my office and the summer season of BBQ LAN's is close at hand.
Madman: Well, there's the mini-St. Pat's LAN I run, QuakeCon, and another 1 or 2 I try for each year. But I almost miss the old college dorms... that was a constant LAN party, yo. *shouts out to his peeps on 3S*
Jube: I don't attend, but I plan to make Pappy's life miserable at QuakeCon this year. If you'd like to be in the "Jube QC2K3 Butt Shot Photo Gallery" then be sure to hop in front of the camera (pants optional).
IceStorm: I try to attend a few a year such as QuakeCon and some CPL events.
f4nt0m45: Uhm.. None unfortunately. I live in the boonies, where we still use
cans and string for telephones, so it's hard to get LANs going.
Fargo: I'm probably averaging about six, not counting when all the GameSpy peeps all fire up some mad Battlefield 1942 after-hours. Then it's like ... 365 LANs a year.
That ad with the dancer is so in your face it has to die...but how? [submitted by RenD]
|Rail to the head. Quick, easy, kinda hard on the cleanup though.|
|Turn up the speed of the music and wait till she explodes.|
|Turn the music to Muzak and wait till she explodes.|
|Drag and drop to the Recycle Bin and flush your problems away.|
|Blue Screen of Death!|
Pappy-R: Rail...to the knees.
Madman: The... um... what? *blinks*
Jube: Man oh man, you've gone and hit a real sore spot with this one lemme tell ya! That tiny dancer needs to DIE. I don't care how, so long as it's soon!
IceStorm: Removal of the skull, railgun style!
f4nt0m45: Light her on fire and watch her dance till she turns to ashes?
Fargo: Sure, the rail is quick and easy -- but is it PAINFUL enough?
How important is irc to your gaming? [submitted by Korozive]
|I connect daily and game from there.|
|I connect a few times a week|
|I connect ...erm...sometimes.|
|huh? for what?|
|and irc is what again?|
Pappy-R: Some things were just made for each other. You got your IRC in my gaming!
Madman: There are unsubstantiated rumors that I have occasionally been spotted at #planetquake.
Jube: IRC is an important part of a healthy gaming diet.
IceStorm: I'm on our #planetquake channel bunches o' times
f4nt0m45: All my gaming comes from IRC, it's much easier to find and meet people there. It'd help if anyone actually would talk to me though.
Fargo: Been a couple of years since I busted out with the IRC chat. I do most of my smack talk in GameSpy Arcade now -- it's basically IRC, but without morons having op wars.
When you play CTF, you play... [submitted by PQ]
|Defense- I'm the great wall of "D" baby and nobody touching my cloth.|
|Offense- I'm in, I'm out, I'm the guy with your flag, meat!|
|Hidden bundle of phear- Not too sure where the enemy base is, so I'll be under those stairs if ya need me. Don't need me!|
|Defense- with just enough loose roaming to keep me on top of things.|
|Escort. See that guy with your rag? He's with me and you're toast!|
|Random Acts of Death- Flags, we don't need no stinking flags! If you're the wrong colour you're already in trouble.|
Pappy-R: Whatever my team needs, I try and deliver. They usually just ask me to keep score though, due to my leet math skillz of course.
Madman: My job in large CTF games online is "pain in the ass." I'm the guy that gets into the enemy base and does nothing but frag people, so that other people can cap while everyone concentrates on killing me.
Jube: I'm a rock at the flag. The great wall of "D" indeed! A motionless, useless big ole' rock.
IceStorm: I am the real Slim Shady! Phear my phore...or is that phore my phear? I do best on D or Disruptor.
f4nt0m45: I try to play a sort of mid-fielder posistion really. I'm more for D, but if the O needs help I'm ready!
Fargo: DEFENSE! DEFENSE! I'm like the IRON CURTAIN! (The reality is that I like to camp...)
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.
Fargo was GameSpy's first employee, back when it was just PQ. Now he writes articles like the the Daily Victim over at GameSpy.
