UPDATE 4/6: Results have been posted!

 -----------------------------

Remember last year when we hosted the celebration 2009 trivia for those who could not participate in game night tonight (it starts at 5 pm PT on Wednesday, March 17th, aka St Patty's day!), but they were able to receive the game night celebration emblem for participating in the trivia? That's happening again this year!

In celebration of the return of community game nights there is an emblem that we are handing out for playing in the first game night of the year or for participating in the game night trivia.

This trivia is for those of you who are not able to participate in this week's Game Night. However, if you already received the emblem from participating in last night's event, you are welcome to participate for fun or bragging rights.

We'll run this trivia from now up until the next game night, which will be announced later this week.

Quake Series Questions to Answer

1. Name three upcoming (unreleased) games that will have any of the original Quake 1 weapons such as: Axe, Lighting gun, Grenade Launcher, Nailgun, Rocker Launcher, Shotgun, Super Nailgun, and Super Shotgun. http://quake.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Quake_1_Weapons. As you might recall, the original quake was known for these weapons. The games need to be released some time in 2010.

2. Name at least one current game that has some kind of super power boost like Quad Damage aside from the Quake series (we already know that the other Quake gamers have this!). You may also list a Mod name, but be sure to share the game name.

3. Name the year that the original Quake Was released.

4. Name three developer real names that worked on any of the Quake series (Quake 1, Quake 3, Quake 3 Arena, Quake 3 Team Arena, Quake 3, Quake Wars and any console Quake games). [Hint: These are people names such as a level designer, art, game coders, etc - most of these real names can be found in the credits in-game or in the tiny booklet that comes in the box]I will give a freebie, one of the developers of the game was awarded something during the GDC Awards show last week! After you get his real name, you have 2 more to find. Note that some of the Quake series of games were also made by Splash Damage and Ravens oftware.

5. Name 3 different in-game character names from Quake 3. You know.. If you have Quake live installed just see what character you are using and you have 1 of the 3 answers already!

6. Name at least 3 developers of the Quake series (if you paid attention I already named 2 in this trivia!)

Send your answers to [email omitted - trivia is over]

This thread is open for discussion and questions since all of your answers will be sent to the email alias. Please dont share your answers until 'after' the trivia session is over.

Since everyone cannot see that you emailed that you submitted trivia questions feel free to also share that you did in this thread. 

Hope you enjoyed this mini trivia and learned something on the way.  

This trivia session ends March 31st at 4pm PT.

For the 1st question what if you don't know exactly what weapons are going to be in the games? Its easy to assume on some games that things like the grenade launcher will be in it but don't know for sure.

I would say this question will be hard and rarely anyone will get it right because developers change their minds on weapons anyways. Might want to go to an adventure or action game and do a search (ctrl F) on the page of a preview or first look pages for the word weapon or the exact keyword of the weapon n ame like rocket launcher, axe, etc.

One question is about the company and the other is a real person. :)   I am looking for a real name of the developer. So, I might as well give you the 'real name' of one of the developers of the game, John Carmack was awarded during the GDC awards. I understand I might have not clearly stated that so I edited the question with another hint.

Sent in my answers. I read the book "Masters of Doom" which talked quite a bit about Quake as well. So most of these weren't too bad.

Thanks for making it!

If you were the person that sent me a PM the other day, just go ahead and resend the answeers and I'll account you for it. I read someone's PM thinking ti was a question about the trivia or I would have left it alone until I went through the entries. :) ONce some private messages get read I tend to forget about it since I receive a hefty amount each week. lol
