What do you think will be the next game ID releases? (other than quake4) [submitted by X-3CUT10N3R]
|A totally new game, creating a new revolution in gaming.....again!|
Pappy-R: Return to Castle Stroggos of Doom. Sorry but somebody had to say it. Actually, something completely different
a madman: The secret project Nerve's working on - the one that's rumored to start with a "Q" and not be entitled "Quake." But I think Pappy's idea sounds good, too.
Jube: Hmm, I'm going to say that it will be another Wolfenstein sequel. I have a feeling we'll see one on the D3 engine. Not just because an id employess mentioned a sequel in an interview, and not just because Splash Damage's next game is D3 engine... I just have a feeling we've not seen the last of ze Castle Wolfenstein.
IceStorm: Can you say vaporware?
Mr. Lake: A totally new game, with totally old characters, in a totally new setting, with totally old weapons, and totally new hardware requirements!
How should we ensure that IceStorm doesn't get into too much trouble at QuakeCon 2003? [submitted by PQ]
|Strap a webcam to his head so Pappy can activate the shock therapy implant if Ice gets naughty.|
|Just wire his jaw shut and toss a straight jacket on him!|
|Chain him to madman, surely mad would be a good influence?|
|Make him endure lengthy Dance Dance Revolution sessions with Dire Hamster, that should tucker the lad out.|
|Tranquilize him and sit him down at QuakeJam where Hellchick can keep him entertained.|
|Send Jube off with a whip and nipple clamps, tell Ice if he's a good boy he can take them home with him at the end of the weekend.|
Pappy-R: /me warms up the transformer and watches for signs of brownies
a madman: Dose his beer with methadone. That'll keep him quiet.
Jube: Personally I think there's just NO controlling IceStorm. Best plan of action is to sit him in a corner with a case of beer and a pan of brownies and hope he stays put. ;)
IceStorm: What? Me? Trouble? Nah, not possible. Anyone seen which room Jube is in? I've got can of cheese and she's been asking for it all year!
Mr. Lake: I think that's the true beauty of QuakeCon...when you're there, you can't get into trouble...not that I've ever experienced the joy...*sniffle*
What IS that weird techie contraption thingy growing outta Xaero's shoulder/back, anyway? [submitted by JGH]
|Gyro-stabilizing auto-modulation device ... Xaero's got Dean Kamen on speed-dial|
|Neuro-transceiver - why pay-per-view when you can pay-per-dream?|
|Hedge-clippers: let's him trim his bonsai plants while reviewing demo streams|
|Ask Edward Scissorhands...|
|It's a backhoe for digging his A-10 Warthog out of the muck|
Pappy-R: I always thought it was for balance, the dude's a rail monkey after all.
a madman: It does wonders for the reception on his Walkman.
Jube: I never made it to Xaero, go figure. ;) I'll just take a stab in the dark and say it's an alien implant.
IceStorm: Someone actually knows what a A-10 Warthog is? I used to work on those bad boys. Talk about 30MM of lovin' fun.
Mr. Lake: Xaero wasn't the lead singer of The Scorpions because he was bald.
If you were stranded on an island with Pappy "The Carnivore" R, how would you keep him entertained so he wouldn't BBQ you up for a late night snack? [submitted by PQ]
|Wear a grass skirt and expose my man boobies a lot.|
|Put on a nightly Quake skit.|
|Let him shoot coconuts at me out of his bamboo rocket launcher.|
|I'd stay in the shade in the hope that Pappy likes his steak well-done!|
|Screw that, I'm getting off that island if I have to swim in shark infested waters to do it!|
|I'd use subliminal messaging to convince him that I taste like liver!|
Pappy-R: I really gotta stop posting Jube's questions. BTW, the correct answer is, just to tell me you saw a cow on the neighbouring island.
a madman: To complete Pappy's correct answer, "...yeah. The one with all the sharks swimming around it."
Jube: The mental imagery going on right now is just plain WRONG. Remind me not to eat any BBQ'ed meats at Pappy's place this weekend.
IceStorm: I'd dazzle him with my knowledge of cheese in a can.
Mr. Lake: I'm looking through the rule book and it clearly states "Last person standing on a frozen mountain gets to eat." I think that's applicable to islands, deserts, and Los Angeles in general.
The release of Quake 4 can be compared to... [submitted by ice raven]
|The release of the mythical 1.10 patch for diablo2 *snicker*suckerzz|
|The second coming...|
|The first pepsi drink that wont make you throw up|
|The unmasking of CRASH...(i still think its JUBE, hope her bf doesn't hunt me down)|
|Alien vs Predator: The Movie (Or one that won't suck anyways...)|
Pappy-R: I'm hoping all I can compare this to is the release of Quake 4. Go Raven!
a madman: I think I'll go with Wm. Shakespeare on this one and compare it to a summer's day.
Jube: Eeep. Well Crash IS the easiest Q3 SP character to beat, but it's still not me. And don't worry about my boyfriend hunting you down... Teddy (Bear) hasn't learned how to drive yet. ;)
IceStorm: The never ending trail. It's there, but no one can seem to find it.
Mr. Lake: I'd have to say Quake 2...I even bought the T-Shirt for crying in the mud!
Which movie do you think would make the best theme for a mod? [submitted by PQ]
|Buffy The Vampire Slayer|
|Men in Black|
|The Lion King|
|Lord of the Rings|
Pappy-R: MiB's have some seriously funky firepower, and that's what I'm lookin' for in a mod...today.
a madman: Lion King, of course! Circle of life = frag, die, respawn. It's as simple as that - even Elton John got it right.
Jube: I'd normally say Alien... but we've seen a few of those and there's AvP as well. Always a good theme indeed. I think I'd go with The Lion King simply because I think graphically it could be incredibly sweet
IceStorm: I'm leaning towards the making of PlanetQuake mod. The object is to keep as much sanity as possible while trying to explain to Jube how to stop her VCR from blinking 12:00 constantly.
Mr. Lake: But these are already games! I want to see Trainspotting, the RTS!
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.
Mr. Lake is the creative director over at Lake's Digital Arts. We keep him in a cage and poke him with sticks until he makes maps. Then we poke him again.
