Pappy-R: /me grabs the extended, dance mix version of invincibility!
Jube: It's just a conspiracy to make us THINK they are de-classifying the BFG. Due to mind control agents injected via flu shots we think we're using a BFG, but they're actually just super soakers filled with a biological substance meant to render us sterile in an attempt at population control.
IceStorm: Bring out the one I have been hiding all these years!
Mr. Lake:The question you should ask yourself isn't "what could I do with a BFG?" It should be "what couldn't."

Which incarnation of "QUAKE: the RPG" would you play? [submitted by JGH]

Instead of floating, rotating-over-the-ground weapons, we'd have all weapons ammo and items individually sealed in cute blue treasure chests.

The Shambler, the Fiend, Cthon, all your favorite anti-heroes arrive via Summons, complete with elaborate, *optional* intro sequence.

Arm Moogles with rocket launchers.(They're like little albino bat-winged koalas, FYI.) IMHO a Moogle without a rocketlauncher is like a shark minus the laser gun.

Pappy-R: RPG? Rail Power Galore?!
Jube: I don't trust RPGs. They suck you in and before you know it you're having RPG marriages, RPG affairs, owning RPG pets and living exclusively in a RPG world. Beware of RPGs!
IceStorm: And RPG Quake?!?!?! /me shivers
Mr. Lake: Sadly, the one RPG feature missing that I would be completely gung-ho over is the "Limit Break BFG".

Pappy-R: Love used to drag me away, but building her a game rig solved that. Frag on dearest...frag on!
Jube: Well, definitely fire. I'm sorry but I'm not going to sit here and burn to death just so I can sit and brag to my fellow hell-mates about how l33t I am. :p
IceStorm: Quake is life, life is Quake. There can only be one!
Mr. Lake: Not so much of a tearing sound...more of a dull whimper.

Pappy-R: I'd imagine it would be a nice mix of rotten meat and Mr. Lake's socks. Just guessing here of course, but it's a theory I've been working on for a while.
Jube: Blech. Fortunately I have a cold right now so I wouldn't smell anything. But I bet it smells like Sarge's ass.
IceStorm: Probably like Quakecon BYOC does on day 4.
Mr. Lake: If you mix salmon, gasoline, vick's vapo-rub, and smores, you get kind of close.

Pappy-R: Bring it on with the Shotgun!
Jube: A second rail hit! That'd be quite something indeed. Two rails in a row. One can dream.
IceStorm: Another rail slug!
Mr. Lake: Rocket launcher...it's like a 21-gun salute in one bullet. I expect nothing less at my funeral. (First 10 rows are the splash zone!)

Pappy-R: Other than those three I'm really kinda warm for Deus Ex: Invisible War
Jube: Hrm, that's a tough because I don't think the games I'm looking forward to are expected out this holiday season. I'm looking forward to Black & White 2, The Sims 2, World of Warcraft, and finally getting around to buying Impossible Creatures. (Pappy washes Jube's keyboard out with soap!)
IceStorm: There are more FPS games?
Mr. Lake: Vengence...I mean, who says a single player Tribes game can't be done?


Who are these people, anyway?

Pappy-R is the PlanetQuake Site Director and ensures that all the coolness on PQ that happens, happens.
Jube runs the morning shift around here, and posts more news before 9 am than most people do all day. Also been known to get all mystic as our star powered QuakeScopes source!
IceStorm takes care of two things for us - the PQ in Review and our "excess beer" problem.
Mr. Lake is the creative director over at Lake's Digital Arts aswell as being a level designer at the now famed house of games, Gray Matter Studios!
