Four? FOUR!?
From: harry (*******@aol.com)


Subject: um all these new platform systems are a waste of money i think all these new platforms are a waste because all you really nead is a playstation or a n64 and pop in a expansion pack or somthing. people are always talkin about the graphics are out dated but they are not look at the new game for the playstation whats it called fear effect it has 4 freakin dicks but the graphics kick butt they look like somthing almost as good as the dreamcast or somthing like that. or the new game perfect dark it has awsome graphics. i dont think you have to go out and buy those expensive platforms just keep your old ones get a good game and kick back and relaxe like the good old times. sincerely, harry
Hey Harry,

Four of them!? My goodness! Were you able to beat them all? If you did, you must have really had your hands full. I just finished beating the first one. It was huge and it took me over a week. Man, am I tired. I think I need a cigarette.

Subject: oops
That there are alot more gaming sites then you thought and 
ohh boy you got competition. Take www.gamewinners.com they 
have alot of codes. And take www.avault.com they even have 
trainers for pc games. Should'nt you hire more staff so that 
you can expand into the best gaming site on earth?!
Sincerely Anton.
P.S. I saw Duke Ferris come to my back yard and kick my dog, 
I want to know why he kicked my dog.
Hey Berkman,

It's called tenderizing, boy! Duke is a gourmet chef, I'll have you know.

And what are you complaining about, anyway? That dog was delicious.

You should have the size of the game out in the open, so we 
don't have to go 
all the way in! ---------- From Jon Eirik Darre. Norway.
Hey Jon,

Size doesn't matter. And if you don't want to go all the way in... oh nevermind. I quit.

Just The Facts!
From:"Dan Keeling" (*****@gsm.uci.edu)
Subject: Research Question
I am researching to answer the following question: 
"Explain the rationale for Sega's introduction of its Saturn 
video game machine in 1995."
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. 
Dan Keeling
What's up Dan,

Sega's rationale was rational. They rationalized that being rational was, well, as rational a decision as rationality would rationalize.

Fortunately for us the Dreamcast is a completely irrational system. Hence it's success.

You Know the One...
From: "parmar" (******@ihug.co.nz)
Subject: loooking for a game
I am looking for a PC Game called "Goblins" and 
its by Sierra. Some details about the game are that 
there are three little People in the game, which 
have special features.
Hey Parmar,

Sierra also made Goblins 2 and Goblins 3. They're out of print, so they will be hard to find. As I recall, those games also had graphics and controls.
