What kind of weapons do you prefer? [submitted by Phoenix]
|One shot instakill hitscan. I want to reach out and touch someone!|
|Automatic weapons. Give me a chaingun and turn me loose!|
|Energy cannons. Hyperblaster, Plasma gun... I like to melt things slow and painful.|
|Melee! I'm in your face with the glove of love! Er, wait, better make that a chainsaw...|
|"Kill everything at once" guns. You know, BFG's, tactical nukes, etc.|
|"Unique" weapons. Prepare to meet my +10 catapult of sheep launching!|
|Anything I can find, but since I respawn so much I guess I really like this here blaster pistol...|
Pappy-R: I don't care WTF weapon it is, but it's gotta feel meaty and I better hear wet sounds when I hit somebody with it. I'm willing to clean my screen as many times as I need.
a madman: Y'know, I count about 90 people answering this question that I'm glad aren't game designers. I'll go for unique, myself. Heat-seeking sheep, acid-bubble launchers, and terrawatt lasers - just what every game needs!
Jube: Mass damage with auto-aim so I can just stand in the middle of any room and rack up the frags! Failing that... I'll take automatic weapons... spray and pray baybee!
Best PQ chix0r ever? [submitted by Gleeb]
|Hellchick - Team Arena Lovin'|
|Mynx - Old school quaker, agony aunt.|
|Jube - Mad Newsie, can't speedrun for beans ;)|
|Gizmo-Z - Puts up with Pappy-R|
|tIKi_mAn - We're not sure...|
|Bitter_Ivy - Stumpin' with those Movie Quotes|
Pappy-R: What am I, a moron? Gizmo-Z rocks and she puts up with alot more gamers than just me. All you other ladies know about the love I have for ya, but sleeping indoors is also good.
a madman: Yow... HC got dissed. Loser by a single vote - no wonder she didn't write in this week!
Jube: Eep. Next question please! I actually voted for Tiki as a joke... but all said and done I'd have to say Gizmo, since without her Pappy would just be a quivering mass of uselessness. ;)
What are your thoughts on the upcoming release of Urban Terror 3.0? [submitted by Uber N00b]
|I'm already waiting in line at FilePlanet. Yes, even though it's not there yet, I'm still waiting in line already.|
|!7 w!11 r0x0r j00 80x0rZ.|
|New release just means more weapons made weaker... I want the M4 back!!!|
|Urban Terror will never live up to Action Quake. (No dual handcannons, no jumpkicks!)|
|Umm... Urban Terror? What???|
|All of the above. Except that last one.|
Pappy-R: But what will version 1.0 look like, that's what I wanna know!
a madman: As you might have guessed from my first answer today, I'm not in a "realism mod mood" lately...
Jube: Gah, I haven't tried it. I was too busy getting ready for QuakeCon when it was released. But I'm happy to hear that the release went over really well!
QuakeCon 2003 is going to just...[submitted by PQ]
|Be "The" place to be for all the new game peeks we'll see. Doom 3 anyone?|
|Kick ass! The BYOC is gonna be my new home, even after they pack up!|
|Suck if I don't hear something about Quake 4!|
|mess with my whole concept of the internet from this day forward|
|Suck 'cause I can't go!|
|Rock 'cause I can't go!|
|*Head explodes from trying to narrow down the best parts of it all into a coherent sentence*|
Pappy-R: Didn't go and didn't miss a thing! Got it, good! I didn't even wanna see DOOM 3, or talk to any of the awesome people that attend each year, and....Aww crap, it sucked not going.
a madman: Rocked. Got drunk with Tapper, played D3 DM, watched the spastic DDR players, my computer didn't explode, and... NO BOSS! *does the happy dance in front of Pappy*
Jube: Hello dated poll. ;) QuakeCon was coolies. Go read my diary!
Have you been playing on the PlanetQuake.com Q3 server? [submitted by PQ]
|Nope, my ping sucks.|
|Nope, I suck and I don't wanna suck there!|
|Yeah baby! The maps, the mods and Pappy cleans up after we gib up the joint!|
|Yeah, whenever I get the chance, I'm there making Pappy burgers|
|Nope, too much to download for my connection.|
Pappy-R: Not as much as I'd like recently, but my rear's in gear for some frags starting Friday. New mouse...come to Pappy!
a madman: As much as it shames me to admit it... not really. *hangs head in shame*
Jube: Nope, haven't been on. But now that things will soon be back to normal, perhaps I'll get the downloading happening and give it a hit.
At QuakeCon, PlanetQuake should worry about covering...[submitted by PQ]
|The tournies! It's all about the skillz!|
|The BYOC and gamer antics. If I'm not there I'm gonna need a laff or two.|
|Tech stuff. With VIA and NVidia there I want to see what's coming up for us geeks|
|New games. All I want is Doom 3 and/or Quake 4 info. Hurry!|
|Pics. Everything and lots and lots of pics!|
|Workshops. I want all the community buzz!|
Pappy-R: Everything! The sign on the door doesn't say the "epicenter of some stuff Quake", does it?
a madman: I think we split it up fairly. Jube got the tournies and BYOC, I did the workshops and games, and Ice got the beer. Er, wait a minute... that's not fair at all!
Jube: Damn, I failed on the tournies thing... had a big piece ready for it, but no way to type it up and send it to Pappy, so it became dated and useless. Kinda like me. ;)
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.
