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...

greetings gr folk,
im writing this to you with hopes of getting an answer
to this question about zombies and the majority of the
movies put out by them. im also writing it with hopes
of getting a really wise ass remark from ya, cause the
gr squad are great for dropping quips when it comes to
criticising games and mocking emails.
so here goes.
why is it in zombie movies you always see zombies
getting shot in the head, burned, mauled, exploded etc
etc, but not once hAs anyone decided to take a friggin
swarm of pregnant flies (who would check for that,
eh?!) and released them onto groups of zombies?
keep up the killer work guys, youve already saved my
hiney lots of loot. money thats better off spent
hooking you all up with some brews.
You can't expect to get a
good representation of Zombie
logic from Hollywood.
Take supeheroes, for instance.
After capturing Batman and
succesfully suspending him over a vat of boiling hot anti-bat goo, why
does the Joker see fit to enlighten the caped crusader about every intricate
detail of his master plan and then proceed to leave the hero unattended?
Because Batman is why you came to see the movie/read the comic/watch
the show. He's the hero who can't be allowed to die, and the same applies
to those lovable, cuddly zombies.
So keep your disgusting fly
torture to yourself, sicko. We like our heroes to live, dammit, even
it that means we have to keep them dead.
Smarterest E-mail Yet.

you've made the world just a little stupider with your mailbag
section.....glad to see you're really doing your part
Uh, thanks...we think. But
apparently we don't know our own strength, because stupider is
not a word.
It's cool, though. We can
help make you smarter.
First learn to juggle. Then
Campbell , listen to Bob
Marley, eat one bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos a day, play lots
and if all else fails, frequently rub your chin and scratch your temples.
Keep Out Of Reach Of Parents?

My parents suck! What should I do?
-The Master of Disaster
Dear Mr. M. Disaster,
Well then, keep them out
of the pantry closets
and don't let 'em near the rat poison. Getting your parents' stomachs
pumped is a bitch!
Once, Shawn's dad got hold
of his favorite G.I. Joe action figures and devoured them. Quick
Major Bludd, Snake Eyes
and all their weapons met a grisly fate at the hands of a father's gastric
To this day, the phrases
"Knowing is half the battle!" and "Yo Joe!" reduce
the man to tears.

I looked a couple of your game reviews and they don't
tell me what input devicesare acceptable for each game.
I am strictly a gamepad person and your reviews are
useless if I don't have that information. Another site
has thisinfo that is invaluable to us older folks or
those that do not have keyboard dexterity.
Just my comments and maybe revisit your site in a few
We write informative reviews
and games in order to
help readers decide what's right for their money. If we've reviewed
a game and controller that you've fancied, then by all means dip your
chocolate in your peanut butter.
But frankly, it would be
impossible for us to catalog every game that works well with every controller.
Some may not work well for any number of reasons, most notably driver
conflicts. There are also various operating systems to contend with.
It's just not as precise
a science as you may think.
We would need to state _?_
controller works well with _?_ version of a game on _?_ version of _?_
OS when using _?_ drivers for that controller. That's just too many
Utlimately it's for you to
decide what works best in your hot little hands. We just supply the
facts. If you like a particular controller, then go ahead and use it
for as many games as you'd like. Better yet, check out our hardware
reviews because we do mention what games we've tested with each
