How many licks will it take for you to get into the center of a Quake logo? [submitted by ???]
|You sick freak. Stop trying to make me answer these crappy questions!|
|I dunno, but I'd rather lick into the center of BOOBIES!|
|*Nerdy*: Actually, you can not lick into digital artwork, the laws of physics do not allow you to take it from the screen and start eating digital art, and that concludes my answer.|
|Bind Key To: This Question Sucks and I won't answer it!|
|Give me some BFG 10K cells and I'll have good meal for tonight!|
Pappy-R: The answer is of course, 6. Then I bit this question.
a madman: A better question might have been "what is in the center of the Quake logo?" I'm guessing creamy nougat.
Jube: Hmm I can't say that I've ever tried to lick a Quake logo. But I have licked a large assortment of other items if you need data in other areas.
IceStorm: I'm gonna go with 76.5 for me. But if it were Jube doing the licking I'd say 3.
Hellchick: It takes about 12,453. Believe me, I know, because it took me a long time to get to the center of the giant Quake Q that hung over my desk for years.
What's the best way to serve gibs? [submitted by Phoenix]
|Sauted in a light mushroom sauce, with a hint of basil|
|Slow-roasted over an open lava pit, grilled to perfection|
|Chopped up, stirred in with rice and soy sauce|
|Chopped, fried, and rolled into an enchilada|
Pappy-R: Raw? You're a sick bunch aren't ya? I like pretty much anything BBQed
with garlic, so that would do it.
a madman: Hmm... fajita-style. Or deep-fried... "gibs on a stick," the fairground favorite! (healthier than your average carney fare, too)
Jube: Deep fried in batter with a side-order of poutine!
IceStorm: On the side with a flaming cold beer. Oh, and brownies!
Hellchick: I find gibs to be a little high in carbs, so I feed them to my dog.
What's your primary gaming octane? [submitted by raptorE]
|Water. I'm super-efficient, like ahnold.|
|Bawls. I grow money on trees. In my closet.|
|Who wants to know? I don't have any plutonium!|
|That new 'Dew livewire stuff.|
|Say si' to Pepsi.|
|--Obligatory Coke choice--|
|I'm a Pappy-R protege (B33r)|
Pappy-R: Kind of odd that 24 people, or one case, voted for beer. Beer makes a
a madman: Where's the hard stuff here? Daddy needs his liquor...
Jube: Coffee 'n Coke! Can't start the day off right without that caffeinate tag team of mine.
IceStorm: I'm a be3r..a B3eR..a b33rr...a beer drinkerer.
Hellchick: A good beer, a good server, and I'm set!
Which of any would you normally prefer as a familiar for a Quake game? [submitted by CheapAlert]
|Rottweiler. Fetch me the stick, and that soldier's leg!|
|Spawn (Tarbaby). Boing, BOOM!|
|Gargoyle. Death from above!|
|Goblin (Scourge of Armagon). Gimme his RL!|
|Shambler, cos he's the Big Fuzzy.|
|Soldier, because whees my bwest fwend.|
|Mimic. You want my treasure?|
Pappy-R: Dude! There was this mod where you got a shambler for a pal and...
(Pappy's exploded again)
a madman: I maintain that shamblers are not, in fact, furry. They're simply pasty white because they've never seen the sun, much like a blind cave fish or Fortran programmer.
Jube: In-game dunno, but I could definitely get into having a stuffed Shambler to drool on at night. So cute 'n floofy.
IceStorm: I'd want my very own IceStorm cause he's one bad ass mofo!
Hellchick: Where's the Quake 2 freakish dog-thing choice? Remember that thing? (Shudders) Then again, that thing was too damn creepy.
If you were making a Buddy Cop movie and wanted to cast Quake 3 characters for the star roles, who would it be? [submitted by Mr. Lake]
|Doom and Hunter - A case of Good cop, Sexy cop.|
|Sarge and Daemia - Can't you feel the chemistry?|
|Razor and Mynx - One's sharp, one has a "likely pair", together they're... a "likely pair".|
|Orb and Visor - Private eye... litterally.|
|Lucy and Hossman - Just because the Nutty Professor wasn't big doesn't mean these two won't be!|
|Stripe and Major - A case of Good cop, Bad cop.|
|Tank Jr. and Angel - Heavy metal walks the beat.|
Pappy-R: Ya gotta love the Orbb/Visor combo. I mean, if it's a comedy that
would be a lock!
a madman: Screw the buddy cop bit, put Visor by his lonesome. You could call it "Blind Justice." Then maybe cast Steven Segal. That'd be a winner.
Jube: Good question. :) I like the Orb and Visor combo. Of course in-game
they're ALL bad cop as far as I can tell.
IceStorm: Gotta go with Doom and Hunter. I likes 'em slim and slippery.
Hellchick: (too busy laughing at the "Private Eye" marketing possibilities to answer)
Would you pay a monthly subscription to play a Quake style MMORPG? [submitted by JGH]
|No. Keep my fragging free!|
|Maybe, if the subscription was < $10 per month.|
|If there's gratuitous Crash B00bies, sign me up!|
|Maybe, if there was no lag.|
|Maybe, if the game r0XX0rs.|
Pappy-R: How about I give monthly charges the finger, and you give me my
Quake! (knock, knock, Neo...)
a madman: Depends. Will it have a complex player-driven economy with warring guilds, elaborate factions, and rare drops? Then no. (wielding an adamantine +3 rocket launcher of haste would be pretty keen, tho)
Jube: Nah, I don't think I'd bite. I'm still reeling in disappointment over Sims Online. Maybe after those wounds have healed I'll be able to look at MMO with a less bitter view. ;)
IceStorm: Um.....My answer starts with a "NO" and ends with a "NO". Any questions?
Hellchick: Serious answer? Only if the world is perpetual and I can effect changes in it that stick around.
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.
Hellchick gave up a promising career in the exciting field of astrophysics to make a job out of playing Quake.
