Will you be joining in on QuakeExpo? [submitted by Quest]
|I've had my booth ready since 2001|
|Qexpo? Wat'cho talking about willis?|
|There's another one happning? Neato!|
|Please, Quake's sooooooo oooooold|
|Only if there's free boobies like last time|
|Damn it, I've run out of cookies!.. You say something?|
Pappy-R: Yeah! Every second I can. You should see what comes out during the event. It's classic love like you wouldn't believe!
a madman: Nah, too lazy. But I'll read up on it and grab some mods.
Jube: Honestly, I never really heard much about QExpo until this year. But it does sound ultra-cool and I'm looking forward to it!
Hellchick: I'd love to go, but I can't this year. Maybe next!
Behold! I present to you, these FIFTEEN *crash!* SEVEN Quake Commandments. Pick your fave! [submitted by JGH]
|There are no other games before Quake: the Alpha and Omega. (Betas are exempt but unsupported.)|
|Abuse NOT yonder smiling typist, lest he kick/ban thine IP.|
|Honor thy dedicated server.|
|Thou shalt not camp blessed points of incarnate manifest.|
|Thou shalt not commit acts of exploitation nor practice unclean arts of unfairness. (No cheating!)|
|Thou shalt go forth and 0WNZ0R, with GREAT l33tn355 and M4!) 5!<1!_!_Z!|
|Slakest thine thirst with blessed elixir of caffeinated bounty.|
Pappy-R: "Honour thy dedicated server" Sorry, I'm all about that kinda shtuff, and yes Hellchick, you are going to hell...but I'll save you a good seat.
Jube: I think my favourite would have to be: Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's Shambler.
a madman: But his Shambler is all big and puffy white and throws lightning and stuff! *covets profusely*
Hellchick: I like, "Thou shalt have no other railguns before me, you bunny-hopping LPB bitch." I'm pretty sure Jesus actually says that when he's playing. (Am I going to hell?)
If you're a Quaker what do you do on your spare time? [submitted by GoldieLock]
|Ummm, play Quake! (any of the three) |
|Bright light, bright light, can't leave house.|
|Sleep though really I don't need sleep. Sleep is for the needy. Ok one more round...|
|Duh, I don't understand, spare time?|
|I don't have a life outside Quake really, hmm what about trying some new mods perhaps?|
|Go out, try and score, though I'm so ugly I can't look in the mirror without being scared, so what are my chances you say?|
|Do regular stuff, so I don't think I qualify as a Quaker really.|
Pappy-R: That would be the sleep time. Gotta shut down the internal units for a couple hours a day.
a madman: I... work for PlanetQuake? Play a lot of Enemy Territory, too. And bask in the healthy glow of monitor radiation.
Jube: Wow harsh answers here! Me thinks GoldieLock didn't eat her porridge this morning!
Hellchick: I knit. And I'm not kidding. I'm working on a pair of socks with the Wolfenstein logo...
"You can't hide forever"...what's your reply? [submitted by Mr. Lake]
|Come from the side, whip out your railgun and slap'em with a slug.|
|Drop from above in a hail of grenades.|
|Splash damage from your rockets below their feet should do the trick.|
|Prove them wrong...hide indefinately.|
|Creep up behind them and whack'em with your gauntlet.|
|Concealed underwater with your lightning gun...luring them in.|
|Hop in front of them and give'em a face-full of plasma.|
Pappy-R: I'm wery, wery sneaky sir! (Thanks Deeds!)
a madman: #4. I can never resist a challenge. Pappy found out and bet me that I'd never work for him without pay. Damn you, Pappy!
Jube: Oh trust me, I CAN hide forever. :) Since I suck, I've made a game out
of hiding. I've become quite good at it really.
Hellchick: I prefer the lightning gun in the water trick. Back in Quake 1. Yeah, I know I take myself out, too...
How long have you been playing Quake...any version? [submitted by Mr. Lake]
|2 years...still getting my feet wet.|
|4 years...decided it was finally time to clean out those Strogg.|
|1 year...how is that even possible?|
|3 years...I was big on curvey graphics at the time.|
|5 years...I was recruited as a space marine before you we're spawned!|
|6 years...some friends introduced me to "Shambly", we've been mates ever since.|
|7 years...I've been down with id since Commander Keen...now where are my teetth?|
Pappy-R: Quake maniac since before Quake was released. I have the Doom II strat guide with John Romero's Quake Interview sitting on my hall shelf.
a madman: I still have Commander Keen with the Quake ad installed, biznatches.
Jube: I think it's probably been about 6 years. I got in there a little bit
late. Sadly, all the good skills had already been passed out by then.
Hellchick: Since Quake 1, but I was a Wolfy fan long before that.
Imagine id Software never came up with the name Quake for a game. What else would they have called the series? [submitted by PQ]
|Game 1, 2, 3...|
|Ookey scary monster stuff (1, 2, 3...)|
|Hell's Gates of Fire and Guns, Lots of guns! 1, 2, 3...|
|Three different names|
|One name for Quake and the other two a series|
|Fred, just Fred for all three.|
|We'd be looking forward to Doom 6 right now, know what I mean?|
Pappy-R:"The Path" Where will The Path take us? Hell, Stroggos, the Arenas. It works don't it?
[I made an error on the original posting of this question. It was from me and not from Mr. Lake (Who's at Gray Matter now!), sorry Lake.]
a madman: Wow, Mr. Lake answered his own poll question wrong. If they'd never used "Quake" for a game, how could "One name for Quake and the other two a series" happen? ...yes, I'm pedantic and proud of it, damnit! (Pappy smacks madman with the trout of clarity)
Jube: Fred! Definitely Fred. I have a total Fred obsession. I've named fish Fred, a dog Fred, and if I had my way all things would be called Fred. All Fred all the time!
Hellchick: I like the sound of "Steve" myself.
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.
