REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

GR Mailbag: Back With A Vengeance, Sort Of

Our Silly Tricks Vs. Your Boring Letter
From: *********@aol.com
Subject: Hello Men at Game Revolution
As you can see I am using AOL right now. But actually, 
I just used one of those one month trial things, so don't
address me as an "unfortunate AOL subscriber". 
You can call me whatever the hell you want to, just 
not "Unfortunate AOL subscriber". Also, dont call me 
"whatever the hell you want to" either, as I know your 
silly tricks. Well that about wrap things up here.
Your Friend,
Benjamin

Dear Unfortunate AOL Subscriber,

Whoops! Sorry, we already forgot. Thanks for the illuminating e-mail. Next time, it would help if you came up with a question, comment, picture, gossip, rumor, joke, rant, chocolate-chip cookie recipe...really ANYTHING would be nice.

Or maybe your e-mail was pointless because AOL censored out all the good bits.

Your friends,
GR

More GR Gear
From: "Gerard Veurink Muismatten" 
Subject: Collectors Request
Dear Sirs,
Excuse me for asking some of Your time this way.
I collect mouse-pads. However, I still have no 
Game-revolution mouse-pad.
I wonder if Game-revolution mouse-pads exist and, 
if so, if it is possible to send me such a mouse-pad 
for my collection.
Thanks very much in advance,
Gerard

Dear Gerard,

Sadly, we're fresh out of mouse pads, though we have lots of other keen GR merchandise for you to check out. In addition to classic goodies such as this and this, we've upgraded a bit.

We've got all new collectible gear, including something for your pet needs, something for that relaxing dip in the lake, and even something for the grown-ups!

PS2 is better than Xbox!
Yeah! Xbox is more powerful but in every years you 
can see the best saler is Sony so non one can beat him 
and on many magazine they say the same.
now i am feel good.

Dear Unfortunate AOL Subscriber,

*Sigh.*

They Set Up Us The Bomb
From: Gamkid00 
Subject: Love Trouble
Hey-
I don't know if my girl friend likes me anymore. She 
hangs on other guys and doesn't like to talk to me. 
And she always goes to movies with the cooler kids, 
and she doesn't let me go with them. And she tells me 
about "bases" all the time, and how she's gone all 
around. Can you please give me some advice and tell 
me what "bases" are? Thanks.
Fred

Dear Fred,

There are many competing theories regarding the correct order of 'bases'. After an exhaustive, thorough inspection of the material during a GR smoke break, we decided that the correct base order is as follows:

Base 1: Inviting a girl over to your house
This does not include your mom, your sister, or a friend's mom. A friend's sister does count.

Base 2: Getting the girl into your room
Note: For longer than 5 minutes.

Base 3: Kicking her ass in Halo
Or Super Monkey Ball, but that's much harder.

Base 4: All Your Base Are Belong To Us

Let's Get It Online
From: "Dallas Espinoza" 
Subject: E3 info
I just wanted to know what your peoples thoughts are about 
microsoft spending $1 billion on Xbox online gameplay against 
what we have heard about playstation 2's online game play? Is 
Gamecube going online too? 
Dallas Espinoza
Student

Dear Dallas,

Our thoughts on Microsoft spending 1 billion dollars on online play can be summed up in one word: wrong. They're actually spending 2 billion dollars over the next 5 years. Now, our thoughts on Microsoft spending 2 billion dollars on online play can be summed up in yet another word: woohoo!

We all know Microsoft has money, and its great seeing them put it to good use. Hopefully they will use it wisely and create a fluid, smooth online environment, bereft of patches and irritating downloads. It might only support broadband connections, but we think this is the wave of the future and that within a few years most consumers will be on DSL or cable anyway.

Sony's plan, while appealing to 56 K users, seems much less intuitive and something of a pain. Having to buy a modem/network adapter as well as a hard drive is pricey and will inevitably lead to much confusion among consumers. Especially since some games, like SOCOM, will be broadband-only.

We don't know a thing about getting the Gamecube online because Nintendo hasn't said anything concrete yet. At their E3 press conference they only said things like: "Nintendo is connectivity." We'd need the bat-computer to solve that riddle.
