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...
Hey game revolution you said in the rant that PS2
will not be so great compared to most PCs when it is released
because it only has 32megs of ram and 300mhz but i think consoles
work differently then PCs, because the PS1 only had 3megs of RAM
and it was making pretty good looking games for five years, and
the N64 only had 8megs of RAM but it could anti-alias which a lot
of PCs with more ram than that can't do. Also, what do you think
of Sega's Dreamcast marketing plan, where you buy the internet
service and get the Dreamcast free? I think it's kind of desperate
but i hear that Sony will be doing something similar with the PS2
hard drive that's supposed to be coming out. Personally i havn't
bought anything from Sega since they butt raped me with the 32X
and Sega CD.
P.S= I love you're game Turok and i think in the next sequel you
should bring back the guys with the blood squirting out of their
necks. And i want your job but the problem is I'm only five and
i don't live in the north pole area.
Ah young Tecno Beer,
Your stance is quite formidable.
Yet the point of the rant has escaped you, young one, like fun escaped
While it's true that the
consoles work in a different manner than PCs, the reason the rant mentions
the PS2 specs was to point out that, frankly, specs shouldn't matter
when considering how well these systems will fare.
You have brought shame and dishonor to all your reading comprehension
May the plague of 1000 essays fall firmly on your head.
don't make games at GR...but we will work very hard to try and
implement your suggestion in the next Turok game we don't make.

Subject: Wassssup question about DBZ
I also have question about Dragon Ball Z do you know
if any games will be made because all the games they
have now suck they do not capture the series at all.
Dragon ball Gt makes an effort but then plops. I would
like to see one with detailed graphics with the whole
dragon ball Z story from radditz until the Mayjin Buu
saga. Here or some suggestion Be able to select from all
of these fighter Goku(of course),Yamcha,Krillin,Tein Vegita
(prince of all sayjins best in DBz to me), Trunks, Gohan,
Piccolo, Goten, Cell, All the Androids, All of the Buu's,
Freeza all of the Ginyu force. The game should also have
the mode of play like Street Fighter Alpha 3 where you
can gain new moves like Goku's dragon fist and Vegita's
Big bang attack. Also have a power system where you can
train to get your power level up and reach different
levels of super sayjin. And also have the fusion
technique. The modes of play should be VS, story, and
training. The game should be totally 3-D with similar
environments to that of soul Caliber but not fighting
on stage but be able to fly to different areas instead
of one area at a time fly to different stages that would
be awesome also that has never been done in a fighting
game I hate being limited to one area of play be able
to PIC like the desert and end up fighting in the
forest then be able to destroy mountains and rocks.
Also be able to power and the clouds and stuff move
and the ground shakes the stronger you are the greater
your effect will be.
I know this game would be a be a big hit I know there
are problems with licensing but I wouldn't try to claim
any rights to the game I just want to play a very well
done game that finally captures the series.
A DBZ game that finally
captures the series...how about having the
characters stand face to face and yell at each other at the top of their
lungs for half an hour? Oh, and one guy would keep holding his breath
'til his face turns red.
Maybe they wouldn't burst
into flames so much if they had more fiber in their diet.
anyone tell me what the heck is up with the hair styles of these characters?
Maybe that's what all the screaming and straining is about...too much

I think it was wwwaaayyy better when you guys had the
picture of tomb raider naked instead of her holding a
pillow! your a disgrace to the curious mind!
What do you think is under
that pillow, a tooth or something?
Besides, it wasn't our decision.
Lara was sick of people staring at her all the time. She just wants
to be loved for her mind, not her body. She's a real fake person,
dammit! With real fake feelings! How can you be so cold, so unfeeling,
so twisted! Shame on you!
P.S. That's not a curious
mind. That's just plain old lack of imagination. You'd have more fun
with the Young Miss section of a J.C. Penny catalog.

There will be no call backs.

Subject: Hi can ask u a queston
i just thought i would complain about your reviews
simply because i have nothing better to do.
first of all, medievel 2
got an A+ how can you justify this, it is hard to control
and has no plot. and is even worse than the first.
then you go and give metal gear
solid an A- when it is clearly the best playstation game
ever released and has been recognised as this by every
psx magazine. and it gets less than medievel 2, how is
that possible? and the final fantasy's. how can you give
them B's when they're the biggest selling games in
the world evercome on 3 and 4 discs, have the most
amount of gameplay available.and the final fantasy 7 storyline
is one of the best. it keeps the game interesting and
makes you want to find out what is going to happen.
i think your reviews are very biased as to the style
of games your reviewers likeand should give an opinion
on the actual quality of the game and not the taste
of the reviewer.. why do you think the above games
are so popular? because they are the best available.
and why do you think medievel 2 didn't sell any copies.
because it was a rushed cheap sequel that no-body wanted.
you should make changes now. i wont be returning to your
Just because a game sells
well does not mean that the game is good. Dukes
of Hazzard sold over 500,000 copies, and it's safe to say that anyone
who liked that game was crazier than Uncle Jesse after a few jugs o'
Crack sells better than toilet
paper, but which one are you gonna buy? Wait, don't answer that.
II got a B+, not an A+. So in reality, we though that MGS
was a better game. You must study the same fist as Techno Beer, the
fellow from today's first mailbag entry.
