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...

I know pokemon is real big, but what's up with everyone
copying the whole pokemon thing, I meen there's Digimon,
moster rancher, dragon warrior monsters, jade cocoon, and
countless others. WHEN WILL IT END?!
You seem confused. Pokemon
is about the wily adventures of kids who meet and deal with random,
bizarre monsters, while Digimon is about the wily adventures of kids
who meet and deal with random, bizarre digi-monsters. And Monster
Rancher is about breeding random, bizarre monsters to send on wily adventures.
Makes perfect sense to us and we hope it never ends!
P.S. We lied. It ends when
I become the Grand Pokemon Master!

Subject: new game
I just read an article about a new game that has a
sexy female character, and she is entirely nude
throughout the entire game. From the boxed out
previews I saw, it looks a lot like tomb raider. I
wanted to know what you think about this, and more
importantly, WHEN CAN I GET IT?!
Well that's all fine, but
the game we just can't wait for is Duke Nukem: Buff and Buffer.
Yes it's true, you'll finally get to play as Duke Nukem in his full,
rugged, naked glory. Run, jump, shoot, and kill as Duke shows off his
rippling muscles and other 'manly attributes.' Look for the release
of Buff and Buffer on April 1, 2001.
P.S. The article you read
was an April Fool's joke by that magazine. It is not a real game. The
stuff about the new Duke Nukem game is absolutely true, though.

Subject: A question About Tomb Raider 4
Hi, my name is Tom Ellwanger I'm 14 jears old and I'm from Holland
I'm crazy about Tomb Raider 1, 2, 3 and 4 but I have got a question
about Tomb Raider 4
Is lara Croft really dead Because I have just finisht Tomb Raider 4
and at the end secuence the Temple Craches in can you tell me if she
is Really dead and if there will be an other Tomb Raider To come in
November or December.
Thank You: Tom Ellwanger
Lara will never die. Seriously,
she's like the Terminator. We know this for a fact because we've been
trying to kill her for a good, solid year.
First, we doused her in gasoline
and set her aflame. Nope. Then we dropped a safe on her head, but she
protected herself with a little umbrella. We tried drowning her, beating
her with a broomstick, and even the good old-fashioned "drawn and
quartered." Alas, she's indestructible.
Our next plan is to make
her play The Crow: City of
Angels for one full day, nonstop. If that doesn't kill her, nothing
Askin' For It.
