The government de-classifies the BFG 10K. What next? [submitted by Mr. Lake]
|Scour the black market to buy one of your own...at any price|
|Enlist in the military and show them how to use it|
|Run for the hills, it's the apocalypse |
|Steal the technology and make a BFG 20k|
|Trade in all your other guns to get it... we know you have them|
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]
|Two words: gibs = mana (three words counting the equals sign)|
|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.|
|All of the above, plus bOObies ( ..... Mmmmmmm Tifa Lockhart!)|
|OTHER (It's okay, I won't feel bad ... *sniff*)|
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".
Which of these would tear you away from quake? [submitted by kuroyasha]
|Love and/or marriage.|
|The call of your favorite not-so-controlled substance (dew?)|
|Fire (on or about my house)|
|Nuclear attack (only because the electricity gives out)|
|The answer you know will be in here somewhere(boobeez)|
|Fools! Nothing can come between us!NOTHING! (shreiking)|
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.
Suppose you're speaking with Klesk face to face...what does its breath smell like? [submitted by Mr. Lake]
|Really rotten liver with onions|
|VO5 shampoo / conditioner|
|Wine and cheese|
|New car smell|
|I have no earthly example...|
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
Your favourite follow up weapon after a rail hit to a foe is? [submitted by PQ]
|Machine gun'em to death them and the cussin' shall commence!|
|Plasma, it's spamalicious!|
|Grenades for that laffing, lucky lottery feeling!|
|Shotgun 'cause chances are, they'll *p0p* like crickets in a campfire!|
|Rocket Launcher 'cause close counts!|
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!)
Aside from Doom 3 / Quake 4 / Half-Life 2, what other new FPS games are you interested this Holiday Season? [submitted by Mr. Lake]
|Halo PC - The Doom-guy rip-off finally pays homage to the birthplace of the genre.|
|Stalker - No one can make it quite as real as the Russians|
|Medal of Honor sequels - So what if the guys who made the original are all behind Call of Duty now...|
|You haven't even heard about the game I'm waiting for.|
|Call of Duty - WW2 all over again...and again...and again...|
|Vampire: The Masquerade - Ok, not quite this holiday season...|
|Unreal Tournament 2004 - Battles in space and vehicular combat...with out the 'Tribes-ness'.|
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?
