Which Quaker would make the best president/king/head of state for your country? [submitted by Phoenix]
|Ranger. He's got the whole interdimensional "tough diplomacy" thing going.|
|Doom. He took on Hell and won, who better to go forth and conquer lesser nations?|
|Sorlag. Greed, merciless greed. Suck the world dry for your own wealth.|
|Anarki. D00D, w|-|0 n33dz rul3z?|
|Stripe. He went from the streets to war hero. For strong leadership, he's your man.|
|Klesk. Sure we don't understand him, but.. erm, well, vote for Klesk?|
|TankJr. Expect to be governed efficiently.|
Pappy-R: I'm going to go for Klesk. Nothing would fight terrorism or establish
peace in troubled areas better than the fear of Klesk eating their leaders
a madman: How about Patriot? Vampire 4 prez! It's not like bloodsucking politicians are anything new on Capitol Hill anyway. (I would have said Ranger, but he makes Richard Nixon look downright attractive in comparison)
Jube: Ohhhhh, I noticed Phoenix has neglected to include any of the female Q3 characters! I think it's time to call in the gals of WAB (Women Against
****jobs) to put a beatin' on his ass!
IceStorm: Doom, its just got a nice ring to it.
Hellchick: Hey! Why isn't Sarge on this list?! President Sarge -- now who can resist the sound of that?
Mr. Lake: I dunno...this is actually an important question to me. It'd have to be
Sorlag...we need to get our ecconomy back on track.
Asia Carrera, an adult film actress, recently took part in a major gaming competition (some game called "Unbelievable" or something). Your thoughts? [submitted by JGH]
|What .... the .... ffff (censored)|
|I'm cool with it. She's tech-savvy, she's a gamer, she's entertaining in ways Robin Williams could NEVER be...|
|She has no business being inblahblahblahholier-than-thou-bullsh*t-rhetoric-etc-ad-nauseum|
|The adult film industry has Ron Jeremy, the gaming industry has Levelord. Coincidence? I think not.|
|Hellchick 0wnz j00! Bring on Asia Carrera, Killcreek, Fatal1ty, *snicker* Jube ...|
Pappy-R: One thing has nothing to do with the other. Games are games and sex
is...games too! Nevermind.
a madman: We should get her to play against Killcreek. In the nude.
Jube: Hey! WT... I think we've already determined that everyone can kick my
ass, no need to keep rubbing it in. ;) Anyway, Hellchick is our Asia Carrera
(ie. our celebrity, not our pr0n star ;D).
IceStorm: She only showed up to see if I was there. She wants me, she just doesnt know it yet.
Hellchick: Good for her! And now that we've got porn stars in gaming competitions, how about putting gamers in porn movies? (Thinks about that) No, wait...that's a horrible idea...oh, God, must...stab out...mind's...eye...
Mr. Lake: Hey, equal opporboobity and all that junk I say.
If God was a Quaker, What would he frag you with? [submitted by Ballz]
|Shotgun (Buckshots in the Face Man!! ouch)|
|Rocket Launcher (The Whole F'in Gib Thing)|
|A mod Grenade of Romero's Head|
|He'll be too busy with command lines......|
|Axe (Axe-Murdering is what Gods Do Best!)|
|Railgun (and he'll make your Gibs scream in Hell)|
|Grenade (like Firing down Thunder, only More Messy)|
Pappy-R: One key. /bind 9 smite_all
a madman: I think the record clearly shows that God prefers lightning.
Jube: I think God would smite us with the Hand of God, each finger
containing unlimited ammo of a different variety. Five weapons in one, plus
web-spinning ability in his palm.
IceStorm: God would use no weapons. He would simple smite thee!
Hellchick: pfft, God's an LPB cheating wall h4x0r. (Hellchick disappears in a flash of omnipotent justice)
Mr. Lake: I prefer to think of God as your friendly SysAdmin.
Which ID Software engine licensee do you like the best? [submitted by Mr. Lake]
|Raven Software - Bring on the Quake 4!|
|Valve - Some of us STILL think Half-Life 2 is based on the Quake 1 source code.|
|Gray Matter Studios - Trinity looks yummy!!|
|Godgames / Ritual Entertainment - Heavy Metal will always rule!|
|Electronic Arts - American McGee's Alice STILL creeps me out!|
|(Classic) Rogue Software - Q2 MIssion Pack joy!|
|(Classic) Xatrix Entertainment - It's all about Kingpin!|
Pappy-R: I'm going to have to go with Raven as my favourite user of da code
outside id. But it's such a close call it's all good.
a madman: I know I SHOULD say Raven. But I really dug the Q1 mission packs. So this one is all Rogue and Hipnotic/Ritual, yo.
Jube: AHHHHH SNEAKY! You managed to slip Gray Matter Studios in there twice,
since Gray Matter was started by ex-Xatrix employees. I'm onto your game!
This is still a tough question though regardless of the duplicate entry. ;)
Raven is pretty yummy, there's no denying the l33tness of SoF and the
potential quadruple l33tness of Q4. Of course Gray Matter did their thang
with RtCW, which is quite l33t as well. Gah! I'm going Raven, because I
IceStorm: Gotta go with Raven for nextgen stuff.
Hellchick: It's all about Raven! And I'm not just saying that because I'm afraid Rick Johnson might kick my ass otherwise. Nooooo siree.
Mr. Lake: I really miss Kingpin. That game had some real classy dialog.
What sort of Quake flavoured bumper sticker would you put on your car? [submitted by Mr. Lake]
|May car has a railgun.|
|Honk if you love gibs!|
|I (heart) my PlanetQuake|
|Shambler on board|
Pappy-R: I'd have to go with "Gibs happen"...'cause they do!
a madman: Actually, I want a suction-cup fiend I can stick to my window. Maybe have a Garfield-tail sticking out of its bloodied mouth, too. That would roX0r.
Jube: Bumper stickers are tacky. But 'Shambler on Board' rocks. :)
IceStorm: I (heart) Jubies Boobies.
Hellchick: Wait, "Quake flavored"? Are we going around licking bumper stickers on cars? I'm confused.
Mr. Lake: No joke, I'm getting one made that says "I play graphic violent driving
video games. Pass at your peril." Should help boost my Chevy Geo's
Paul Steed (previously of id Software) once said a BFG would taste "minty". What do you think? [submitted by PQ]
|Hot! Really extra spicy hot...Ow, ow, ow!|
|Oddly enough, a lot like pond scum. Don't ask.|
|He's right, it's minty fresh!|
|Sour, like those sour candies that make ya go pucker.|
|Seeing as it's lethal, searing energy, I'm think "flavour" might be something a bit outside the realm of...|
|It tastes like...more!|
|Kinda sweet, kinda NOT!|
Pappy-R: I think it would taste like lime. A nuclear kind of sour baby, YoW!
a madman: That's-a spicy meatball!
Jube: Actually I think I have to agree with "minty". Like a nice dish of
mint ice cream topped with hot fudge. Mmm, that sounds good. Gotta go!
IceStorm: Well, peppermint or spearmint? Some things just gotta be asked.
Hellchick: I have to agree with the ol' Steed. Especially since the bar by id's old offices used to serve a BFG drink, and I hear it was minty. So I figure he knows what he's talking about.
Mr. Lake: I always thought of plutonuim as having a greek salad kind of
taste...without the walnuts and lots of fire.
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.
Mr. Lake is the creative director over at Lake's Digital Arts as well as a recent hire at Gray Matter Studios. They keep him in a cage and poke him with sticks until he makes maps. Then then they poke him again.
