Pappy-R: If your name is "Deathfromabovemonsterwithbigteeththatwilleatyourmotherandspitouthershoes666mansonhitlernazimonkey". Oh, and the name "Sniper#" is really pretty much taken! Move along.

It's merely OK.

It causes more problems than it solves. (laaaaag)

It gives those "punks" exactly what they deserve!
24
15.2%
PunkBuster is a seemlessly-integrated program that makes good on every one of its promises. *hides non-descript briefcase containing large sum of money*

Just another means by which cold, unfeeling video game companies tighten their stranglehold on an already captive audience.

Pappy-R: Works for me. Never had an issue and my servers use it.
Jube: It can be annoying when you're getting booted for this, that and the other thing, but if it's keeping the cheats off the streets then amen bruthas and sistahs!
Hellchick: I'm always up for busting punks!
Mr. Lake: I've never actually seen any "punks busted"...I think I would have more faith in the product if the punk was spawned into a room with just maccaroni to defend himself, while everyone on the server lays on some BFG smackdown.

You've just grabbed the flag on Q3CTF3 after destroying the defense. Do you... [submitted by PQ]

Pappy-R: OK, that settles it. Hellchick is never getting my flag.
Jube: If I've somehow managed to get the flag then I'm running as fast as Lucy's fat little legs can carry me. No time for the pwnage dance here boy's and girls!
Hellchick: Stop, do a little dance, then blow my nose on the flag and shout, "neener neener neener."
Mr. Lake: ...legend has it that the enemy flag is the yin to your yang.

Hellchick: Counter...strike...? (looks confused)

Mr. Lake: Ah, the "Mr. Lake Talk Show"...featuring ...well... ok, I can do a few impressions but beyond that I got nothing. :(


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. She's also the mystic mind behind the Quake Scopes!
Hellchick gave up a promising career in astrophysics to make a job out of Quake. She also holds the GameSpy record for "most inflatable sheep named Pearl."
Mr. Lake is the creative director over at Lake's Digital Arts and level designer at the truely funky game house, Gray Matter Studios.
