Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...

Im a regular reader of game-revolution.com, even base
my game-buying on your reviews.... Just called to say
that a sentence in your "hercules 3d prophet 4500" review
hurt my feelings... "Tribes 2 is a total nightmare. With
all in-game properties set to Â¼ their full capacity, the
4500 had an unsuccessful time trying to convince the
controversial Tribes 2 to show a little leg. Even with
the scaled-down settings, the game was about as visually
revealing as a devout Muslim wife." Im a muslim myself...
Wait don't answer that! Just
give them our phone number.
Believe it or Not.
Subject: Ok Ps2 starts having good games next pigs will fly...
Wow maybe i should wait for the consoles to come out.
Yo its just out of curiousity i am asking this but you
have been working extremely hard
In simple words keep up the good works.
And last question are you guys going to write an article
like the one you did for PS2 where you stayed outside the
store night before the Ps2 and reported on it.Are you going
to do this for the xbox and gamecube?
it becomes necessary, we plan to just send Shawn,
our absentee editor from last year's all night fiasco. The rest of the
editors here would hate to horde such "fun" all for
GR Serenades A Reader!
Subject: The Rhapsody RPG review stunk!
I do not think that rhapsody is boring! It is romatic and the BEST RPG
game out there. That grade deserves an A+!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have any flames or comments email me again!
We sang a nice response for
you, in honor of your love for this "stellar,"
musical game. But since you couldn't hear us and the entire audio file
is much too large, we decided to just give you the chorus.

Subject: let me tell you how cool you people are!
First of all you actually answer all the crap mail. Second,
your wasting you "precious" time. Third, you Nintendo game
freaks are really gay. And don't give me that "then why are
you e-mailing us, and why are you visiting our website" shit.
Well, you are making stupid websites ruining all of you
computer genius by constructing Nintendo game sites, when
you could put you talents into making a "useful" web site.
So could you please answer me that?
A person who has a life.
Dear man behind the curtain,
don't actually answer all the mail. Just the ones that are easy
to make fun of.
E.T.A.: Fall 2001!

1) You've picked
a good one. Check Six Games, an amalgamated crew of PC developers known
for their work on Interstate
'76 and Heavy
Gear 2 is working on this very promising title.
Marines is a 1st-person squad-based military action game. Players
will play Lt. Joseph Henry, who is put in command of the most incompetent
platoon of Marines as punishment. When ordered to investigate a toxic
waste dump on planet LV246 (the setting from the second Aliens film),
he discovers the Aliens.
