If you were going to design the next game in the Quake series (excluding Quake 4)...what would it be? [submitted by Mr. Lake]
|Quake V - The Undiscovered Frag...fragging the common ways simply won't do this time around.|
|Quake - The Return...Shub, who's been put back together by her loyal army of Shamblers vows vengence...it's payback time!|
|Quake Reloaded...Kung-fu and guns, lots of guns.|
|Quake United...A war is coming between llamas and 1337's...which side are you on?|
|Quake Gone Wild...boobies, need I say more?|
|Quake Quake - The Quake Quake Quake Quake Quake Quake...An endlessly re-occouring grenade-bfg jump telefrag 20-kill railgun shot to the gut.|
Pappy-R: Quake The Movie, The Game! Yes virtual recreation of the movie that you can take part in with complete holographic freedom! Wait for the movie, then the game...it'll be kool!
a madman: Anything with Quake and kung-fu in it has my vote. Duking it out with a shambler on top of a high-rise would win extra brownie points.
Jube: Quake Sims! Just think of the posibilities... buy furniture and decorate levels, adopt pets to fight by your side, lock your enemies in little rooms with no toilets, have intimate relations with all of your neighbors, and if you're losing just start up the BBQ and set the whole level ablaze!
Hellchick: It would be "Quake: When Shub Met Niggurath", a sweet and charming love story about a horrible evil from another world and its search for true love.
What's your all-time favorite gaming trick? [submitted by Phoenix]
|Chaingun-sniping in Doom. Mow 'em down from a distance with pinpoint accuracy!|
|Pentagram + Thunderbolt + water = gibs. 'Nuff said.|
|"Handgrenade Surprise". Take one unaware crowd, one grenade, toss lightly, serve raw.|
|Feign the out of ammo. Run away, then double back and give them a facefull of buckshot.|
|"BFG-jumping" in the middle of a crowded room (with lots of armor on).|
|The "Quakeworld Juggle". Rocket and shaft for a nice airfrag.|
|Charging people with the invulnerability and Berserker in Doom.|
Pappy-R: My all time faves are of course the RL, LG combo of Q1 and any jump related kills in any Quake. Or any time my enemy dies and I don't actually.
Jube: My all-time favourite trick would probably be getting a frag, thus shocking all of my opponents into submission. Or at least getting a few free frags while they're all rolling around on the floor laughing.
Hellchick: Anything with the Quake 2 handgrenades. I didn't get the nickname "The Pineapple Princess" for nothing.
a madman: Really? I thought we called her that because of her amazing Carmen Miranda impression. You make a fruit hat look sex-ay, Hellchick!
You're Quaking away, kicking ass, getting ready to win the match, when somone sticks a copy of Doom 3 in your face the day before release. What do you do... [submitted by TheHappyFriar]
|Pick your jaw off the floor and install that pupy right now!|
|Give 'em a big wet one. Then realize they aren't your "significant" other.|
|Shove them outta the way, loose the match horribely and fall to the floor in a heap crying.|
|Install that puppy right now only to find that your P3-550 and TNT2 can't run it.|
|Whip out the copy you got LAST WEEK when you raided the id offices! Signed of course.|
|Ask why Hellchick didn't show you the game in a Bikini.|
|Nothing, cuz you've got lame friends who don't work and can't afford it.|
Pappy-R: If anybody gets this game before me, there's gonna be a problem. The guy handing me the game can pretty much be assured a big phat trout slap of love...with a real stanky old trout!
a madman: a) wonder when pre-orders came with courier delivery and b) wonder how they got in my house. But if they come bearing gifts, it's all good.
Jube: Screw the match. :o I'd have some serious work to do. Before I could install DOOM 3 I'd have to go shoplift a new computer and pick up enough snacks to last for my longest undisturbed gaming session ever.
Hellchick: If I asked why Hellchick didn't show the game in a bikini, it would be a tangled universe we live in.
Do you get Morning Gas? [submitted by Quest]
|A day doesn't go past that I'm not in Pappy's Inbox!|
|Its the first thing I read in the morning|
|Well, technically I get it at night...|
|Right after my morning boobies!|
|Sometimes, if I drink my coffee too fast|
|I just don't get it|
Pappy-R: Yes, yes I do. *burp*
a madman: I never get up on the wrong side of noon if I can help it. I likes my afternoon gas just fine.
Jube: Sure I read Pappy's Morning Gas, I have to keep an eye on his Jube trash talking so I can pay him back in kind!
Hellchick: yeah, down at the Shell station on the corner.
You have been Quaking all night and ya mom shouts "You have to go to sk00l!" [submitted by [QCA]SebaSOFT!]
|You start an everyday fight for getting dressed and stuff|
|Do da ninja stuff and knock your mom out before everyone awakes|
|Your try to explain slowly what it means to feel a game and stuff|
|You realize there has no been players on da server for hours and get going|
|You start crying like a baby, even if you have 20+ years|
|You hide in your closet and write a letter saying "Mom I left early to study harder"|
|A and if doesn't work B and F|
Pappy-R: Umm, Mom. No school today...I'm 40!
a madman: What? We've got young'uns reading this site? Maybe my efforts to be a bad influence all this time will finally hit paydirt!
Jube: Damn... I wish. I've been out of school for more years than I care to remember. And as for Quaking all night... see previous statement, I'm old, in bed by 11PM. ;)
Hellchick: If my mom shouted that to me, that's only because she wants to horn in my Quake playin'.
The PQ Poll was MIA last week because... [submitted by PQ]
|Pappy's memory ain't what it used to be...|
|Jube took the Poll and hid it down her top screaming "You can't touch this!"|
|a_madman and Dire Hamster got all confused and wrote the Mailbag over the Poll|
|IceStorm ate it|
|f4ntom45 walked out the door with it and is currently holding it for ransom. Yeah, we had the five bucks he was asking for.|
|We had to wait for the bacon shipment. Priorities people!|
|Wasn't there an E3 PQ POll movie teaser released?|
Pappy-R: Man, that PQ Poll E3 Teaser movie was something else wasn't it!?
a madman: Well, you see, the real reason it was missing was actually.... OH MY GOD, WHAT'S THAT BEHIND YOU! *runs away*
Jube: The missing poll still has me confused. I thought we did it. Although when the following week rolled around it did seem like it had been a while since we had done one. :o I think it's out there, somewhere, stranded in the Twilight Zone. Let's send IceStorm in to rescue it!
Hellchick: Bacon?! Did somebody say BACON?
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.
Hellchick gave up a promising career in the exciting field of astrophysics to make a job out of playing Quake.
