Sudden Death. You die. Which way is the most pathetic? [submitted by Phoenix]
|Pimpslapped with the gauntlet.|
|Backflip into the lava.|
|Should have stood back...|
|Leaving a crater.|
|"Your connection has been interrupted..."|
Pappy-R: Pretty much anything done by Jube that causes death would be humiliating. I gotta go hide now.
a madman: The rocket jump that sends your dead body flying to the ledge you wanted to get to.
Jube: I hate being killed by the Gauntlet. It happens way too often. I actually enjoy being telefragged though. Especially in Q2.
If you were to pick the next engine to mod for, what would it be? [submitted by Mr. Lake (Yes, me)]
|UT2K4's updated "Warfare" engine...Multiplayer madness at it's best|
|Doom 3, because it's all about them awesome hardware requirements to drive those insane ideas|
|Valve's "Source" engine...everything you need to make a perfect virtual reality away from reality|
|STALKER's "X-Ray" engine...Russian made realism at it's finest|
|The current engines are just as good as that new-fangled technology|
|Tenebre 2...lets face it, you can't beat "free".|
|I rage against machines...|
Pappy-R: Definately the Doom 3! Highly detail gerbils from hell is my mod idea and it'll rock your world!
a madman: What, nothing about the Torque engine? Lazy, lazy Mr. Lake. I wantt o see the super-cool D3/Q4 modding stuff, though.
Jube: Me modding is a joke, but if I were to suddenly wake up and grasp programming, I'd want to mod for Q1, Q2 or Q4.
What's the *first* Q3A mod you want to play that makes the leap to DOOM3/Quake4? [submitted by JGH]
|Rocket Arena 4|
|PainKeep O' DOOM|
|Other (place JGH's short attention span casualty here)|
|CTF Threewave variant (Fourwave?)|
|BRING BACK DEATHTAG!!!|
Pappy-R: Since I want all the listed mods, plus more, I'll just sit here and take what I can get.
a madman: Hate to say it, but Generations 4 seems kind of redunant... you'd have Doom 2 guy, Doom 3 guy, Quake 2 guy, and Quake 2 guy v2.0. I'll go with "other." (any bets on how long we'll wait before a D3/Q4 TF mod is announced?)
Jube: Another toughy from JGH... I'm going to have to go with Rocket Arena 4 for the win! Two of the many other mods I'd love to see hit Q4... Jailbreak and LMCTF.
If you could get paid to work with the games you love, what would your choice job be? [submitted by PQ]
|Promoter / Public Relations|
|Event / Tourney Shoutcaster|
|LAN / Tourney Organizer|
|Fan Site Webmaster / Writer|
|Game Beta Tester|
Pappy-R: Definately game design, yeah, definately. If that doesn't work out I could give this webmaster stuff a shot.
a madman: Gah, I'd never go for that "fan site webmaster" stuff. Put me down as developer, the rest of these are just window dressing...
Jube: I'd love to be a Game Beta Tester, but I suck at it. I've done some tournament organization in the past, so it could be fun to do some LAN/Tourney stuff... and of course I enjoy writing, so jot me down for Writer as well. PR could be fun too. Hell, just put me down for one of each.
You can have dinner with the person of your choice to talk about your interests. You have dinner with...[submitted by PQ]
|John Carmack, I can talk tech and chew! (id)|
|Rick Johnson, let's talk Quake 4, shall we?|
|Hellchick so we can talk about the galaxy and gaming|
|Tim WIllits, old skool and lead on DOOM 3 (id)|
|Jube, just to find out how much liquor is needed for those QuakeScopes|
|Pappy, it's beef, beer and bandwidth, any questions?|
Pappy-R: Carmack, Willits, Johnson, Hellchick and more over at my place for BBQ. That's my choice and I'm sticking to it.
a madman: I've had dinner with Jube, and trust me, it's nothing special. Tim was too busy to be fun at the cocktail party at QuakeCon. Now, dinner with Pappy and Dire Hamster at last year's QuakeCon - that, my friend, is the stuff of legends...
Jube: People need to stop including me in these polls, I always lose. I'm going to get a complex! ;) I got to meet Hellchick at QuakeCon and she's ultra-coolios, so I'd be down with hanging with Ms. Chick. Pappy-R is fun to be around as well, plus he has lots of beer. So HC and Papperoni it is, both so creamy that you can't pick just one.
Your preferred style of play is...[submitted by PQ]
|FFA! Teammates are just things that get in my way|
|CTF, more than just killing others, you steal from the too. Humilitaion x2!|
|Coop. It's all about humans making AI cry like a newbie!|
|Team Dm. I work and play well with others|
|Multiple objectives, I need complicated startegy to hold my attention|
Pappy-R: Team Dm with CTF in a close second. I'm much more of a team player than a star player.
a madman: I like-a the CTF. Co-op, too. And FFA. Where the hell is the "all of the above" entry? TDM is the only one here that I don't love like life itself.
Jube: CTF all the way. I need something to work towards in a game. With
games like CTF or Enemy Territory you can still get the job done without it
being all about the frag. Because as you all know, I suck at the whole frag
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.
