If President Bush visited Planetquake.com, he would say... [submitted by raptorE]
|Yep, more citizens exercising their right to own.|
|Pah! Games are a waste of time. *bzzz* Ms. Secretary, step into my office for a moment!|
|Railgun WHA?! Do we have those yet?|
|LOL! Todays POTD r t3h 1337!|
madman: ...that the BFG is a weapon of mass destruction, so let the bombing begin!
Jube: After trying to liberate us from Pappy-R (tee hee j/k paps, me lubs you!! :D), he'd probably say LOL! Today's POTD r teh l33t. Cuz well, they rox0rz 'n stuff.
IceStorm: He'd really be looking into the BFG with a 40x Zoom scope
f4nt0m45: You're assuming we'd allow him to say anything?
Pappy-R: The man would know ownage when he sees it. Oh and Jube...byte me!
Klesk: SSSSilly humans. Leadersss tassste to usss.
The average Quake player... [submitted by PQ]
|Eats too many Twinkies|
|Is totally l33t!|
|Never leaves the house|
|15 4 /\/\4d |-|4k|<3|2!|
|Is a totally well balanced individual who happens to enjoy blowing things up|
|Always gets the girl (or man) in the end|
Pappy-R: Is an above average person.
madman: If I'm any of these things, it's the second. I sleep only when I collapse from exhaustion. It's nice having a 37-hour day to get things done in, but employers never seem to understand.
Jube: Hmm, I sense a conspiracy, most of those describe me to a "T", minus the bits about being l33t, well balanced and always getting the girl (or guy). ;)
IceStorm: There's an average Quake player?
f4nt0m45: The average Quake player has probably never seen the sun, and tries to strafe jump in real life.. I know I do!
Klesk: Meat. Gibsss
Quakers stay in shape by... [submitted by PQ]
|A whole lotta point 'n click!|
|Mad sex0rz between games|
|Carrying around that heavy arsenal|
|Going to the Gym|
|My shape is round, it's not hard to hold!|
|Plenty of in-game taunting!|
|In between rounds I bench press Lucy|
Pappy-R: Getting up for food and drink when required. And you better need it mister!
madman: Walking everywhere when the weather is good, other exercise as needed.
Jube: Point 'n Click all the way! It actually burns a surprising number of calories, I've checked!
IceStorm: Mad sex0rz DURING games! (just ask Jube)
f4nt0m45: I for one only keep my lungs, and hands in shape. Smoke a cig to keep the lungs working, and then I uh.. play lots of games to keep my hands in gear.. Yeah that's it.
Klesk: Running from usss
I was conceived... [submitted by PQ]
|On The Edge|
|In the back of a pickup truck|
|In The Bad Place|
|In The House of Pain|
|Eww! *covers ears* I'm not listening!|
Pappy-R: On a rowboat entering Canada illegally from Quebec.
madman: if I know. Can't say I asked. Pappy, why did you burden us with this horror of a question?
Jube: Definitely in The Bad Place, but at the same time Eww!
IceStorm: in Hell
f4nt0m45: I was never conceived! I just magically spawned here!
Klesk: The hive. Many new, all need food. Hunger...
What kind of mouse do you use to frag?? [submitted by haNniBaL]
|My thumb does all the work! Trackballs 0wn j00|
|Microsoft makes a damn cool ball mouse... As long as I clean it every day, I'm fine! So HA.|
|The eraser on my laptop beats tha hell out of any mouse! So does my touchpad.. Bring it|
|Dual optic, mofo! Mwahaha|
|Cordless optic! I'll frag yer ass from across the room :-D|
|Keyboard all the way h03! it's 1337|
Pappy-R: Logitech Wingamn. Ya gotta have balls!
madman: Damnit, where's the non-optical mouse selection here? Mechanical accuracy is the only thing that can keep up with my fragging, yo.
Jube: MS Optical.
IceStorm: I use mental telepathy. Maybe that's why I lose all the time. Damn cords...
f4nt0m45: I got a super sweet Logitech optical mouse, that I trust with life! <3 Logitech :)
Klesk: Moussse? Sssnack!
If you were making Quake 4, what sort of thinngs would you add to the game to make it unique? [submitted by Mr. Lake]
|Money, or some sort of point system to purchase gear or upgrade your character like an RPG.|
|Maybe more than one ending this time around...beat it the 'other way'.|
|It's high time we he had real boobies in a Quake game!|
|It's high time we he had a flame thrower in a Quake game!|
|Yo! I'd keep it real by taking the battle to earth, klobber the Strogg on our own turf for a change!|
|Add in some sneaking and tactical elements like Metal Gear Solid or Splinter Cell.|
|Guest appearance by Duke Nukem...God knows if we'll ever see another game staring him again.|
Pappy-R: Some RPG elements. Upgrading rocks. Alternate endings means more open ended missions, and I like dat!
madman: I would add a distinct lack of red- or orange-colored lighting. And inverse kinematics, for realistic realtime breast-juggling physics.
Jube: Bringing the battle to earth would be quite cool, maybe have some sort of portal to go between worlds. :o We've already got a flamethrower in RtCW and there are enough people hooked on RPGs... so... yup...
IceStorm: I'd require team tactics for all team games and punish those that play it without strategy.
f4nt0m45: I'd rip out any realism aspects, make sure it's speedy like all Quake should be, and make sure stealth has no part in it. Down with realism!
Klesk: Sssstrogg are unworthy! Tank Jr. isss my bitch!
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.
Klesk is a rogue Quake 3 bot who's fond of railguns, human flesh, and long walks on the beach.
