The government bans mice (The computer kind) what do you use to play your games NOW? [submitted by Sonic587]
|You stop playing games and think it's time to get back to that husk of a life you have.|
|You use your mind to control your games. You knew you'd need those shweet RPG skillz someday!|
|Take up your machine gun....Who is it that passed that law now?|
|You fashion a device made out of a copper wire, a mountain dew can, and some ducttape...You seriously can make anything out of those three things.|
|Use a real mouse and wonder why the heck it isn't working!|
|The answer is simple! You can use your gameboy as a mouse! DUH! Oh, wait a minute...|
Pappy-R: A stick. Big, pointy...stick.
a madman: I'm on the waiting list for the neural-interface input device. Or at least I wish I was.
Jube: I'd patent the "gerbil", which would of course be very similar to the mouse. That is, unless Richard Gere already has a patent on the gerbil. If so, then "hamster" it is.
IceStorm: Use a joystick
Mr. Lake: If it can work for Halo, then I'll just use my XBox controller and adapter
if it's al the same to everyone else.
If you could combine your favorite platform game character with Quake, who would it be? [submitted by Mr. Lake]
|Sonic the Hedgehog - Fastest blue fragger alive!|
|Swing your axe from side to side, doin' the Mario - all together now! (how sad, I know the words)|
|Crash Bandicoot - doing that...thing...that bandicoots do I guess.|
|Rayman - no arms, no legs, no rocket launcher?|
|Any of the Belmonts from the Castlevania series...whip those Shamblers into shape!|
|Shinobi - Slice 'n dice those fiends to pieces.|
|Those guys from Contra...you know...those guys?|
Pappy-R: Anybody see the Quake III Platformer? That'll do donkey, that'll do.
a madman: I have a half-finished Q1 Castlevania conversion, so I guess that wins by default.
Jube: I guess it'd be a combination of Sonic, Yoshi, Mario and Donkey Kong. Hmm, maybe we should just combine Quake with the game Impossible Creatures, develop our very own platform killing machines.
Mr. Lake: Three words...Ninja Gaiden Quake.
You're quaking and Darth Maul appears behind your chair. You... [submitted by kuroyasha]
|freak and say "Oh Crap!!!"|
|Ignore him and finish owning Pappy-R|
|Ignore him and finish getting owned by Pappy-R|
|Wave him away with instructions to bring you a soda.|
|"Welcome, my young apprentice!"|
Pappy-R: Maul's a gamer at heart, you can just tell. he'd already have pulled up a chair at an empty comp and be fraggin' away.
a madman: So would he be standing on top my bed, or waist-deep in the mattress? My apartment is pretty cramped, y'see...
Jube: I'd finish owning Pappy of course. Dark dude would take one look at my l33t playing skillz and run for the hills.
IceStorm: Tell him to move it or lose it before I own his ass too.
Mr. Lake: "Go get me a pepsi, biatch!"
Which llama is llamest? [submitted by Phoenix]
|Fog-Diving Flag Runner|
Pappy-R: Yup, the Bot boyz have it! Bleet for us, nice and loud.
a madman: Jube! *rim shot* Other than that, the spawn campers are what really toast my marshmallows.
Jube: Huh? What's so fl00fy about that? I don't enjoy the game unless I'm spawn camping, team killing and flag diving.
IceStorm: Where's Pappy-R?
Mr. Lake: Gauntlet chaser...you know...the poor-sport loser always trying to humiliate
you? Give that guy a rocket to the teeth.
I'd rather have a... [submitted by PQ]
|LG instead of a Rail|
|Rocket launcher over shotgun|
|BFG more than a Plasma Gun|
|High ping and steady packets over packet drops on low ping|
|Rail over an RL|
|Bawls instead of a Bull|
|A trick, rather than a treat|
Pappy-R: Better question. I was reaching OK, geez!
a madman: ...bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy. In fact, liquor trumps all those options. C'mon, Pappy!
Jube: I'd rather you all just stfu. What's with all these questions today? Yeesh. Stop being so damned nosey. ;)
IceStorm: Rail gun always. No spamming noobs that way.
Mr. Lake: ...wife than a computer. (audience "Awwwww")
My Q3 directory weighs in at... [submitted by PQ]
|1.2GB - 1.6GB (What can I say, I like to try new things!)|
|2GB - 3GB (Yeah, I'm a bit out of control, and that's just my screenshots and demos!)|
|800MB - 1.2GB (A couple of mods & custom maps and I'm set.)|
|1.6GB - 2GB (I'm a collector of fine Quake antiquities.)|
|Over 3GB (RAWR! My Q3 owns your Q3!)|
|Under 600MB (I'm so vanilla they call me Ice.)|
|600MB - 800MB (I have what I need to get on most servers.)|
Pappy-R: Two installs, both over 6 gig and mostly different maps and mod versions. What did ya expect?
a madman: A bit under 3GB. A few hundred MB of that is my own code, I think. Maybe I should finally install RA3 to push it over the edge.
Jube: 1.20GB, but up until last week it was under 500MB. How'd it double in size is what I'd like to know! Hmm yes, apparently Pappy installed a zillion maps that I'll never play. :p I know that might sound rather blasphemous and all, but I figure I'm going to hell anyway...
IceStorm: Under 600MB (I'm so vanilla they call me Ice.) Doh! Hey!!!!!!
Mr. Lake: Anything Quake has it's own dedicated harddrive. Keeps the other games from
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.
