Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


GR Mailbag: Love - Death - Mimes - Believe - The Crow

Posted on Monday, February 21 @ 12:13:14 PST by Duke_Ferris

A few years ago, I wrote a review for The Crow: City of Angels. Go read it. Boy, did that game suck.

Since then, I have gotten more mail from that review than from any other. My 'Crow Mail' has become an office joke here at GR. Many of the letters seem to be from 'goth' fans of The Crow and Brandon Lee, despite the fact that Brandon was dead and did not appear in City of Angels.

For the record, I did read the comic, and I saw both movies (uugh) before I reviewed the game. In fact, Brandon Lee and I played Dungeons & Dragons together in high school.

Frankly, I think many of these people have been overcome by the fumes from their black hair dye. "Black is what I wear, because black is what I feel on the inside." Very deep. My advice for them is to relax, take deep breaths, get a new body part pierced, and listen to all their Morrissey albums again.

Presented for your consideration are some of my favorite letters.


My Brain Is Too Small
From: "Joe Neil" (*******
Subject: You suck
Don't you ever insult the movie The Crow again. You 
probably have never seen that movie and you probably 
didn't get it's message because you're brain was too 
small to comprehend it.
I Suck Ass
From: "Jack Pritchard" (********
Subject: The Crow: City of Angels
Damn you to hell. What is wrong with you. The Crow 
isn't meant for eye-candy addicts like you must be. 
You suck ass. Who the hell reviewed it anyway. You 
were meant to review the gameplay, not tell us what 
you thought of the movie and of the comic book. 
The Crow is an excellent movie, and was very nicely 
done considering a man DIED making it. Have some 
respect for the dead, you damn hippy asshole.
I'm Cool
From: "Kari Newman" (*******
Subject: RE: Question
your reviews kick ass your cool--
because you leave the good parts of bad games out 
and concentrate on stuff
that sux like the crow and the spice girls.
I'm A Liar
From: colleen@*******.net
Suject: you are a liar
The comments you made about the crow city of 
angels game is a bunch of crap. How can you 
judge someone that you don't even know saying 
the creators should be fired. I think if you 
have nothing good to say don't say anything. 
The only reason you did not like the game is 
becasue you didn;t like the movie. You are the 
only one i know that didn't like the movie. 
It is already a classic (the first one) even 
though the second wasn't as good as the first 
it was a hell of a lot better then a lot of
I'm Funny
From: "Nick Garver" (*******
Subject: RE: Question
By the way you guys are hillarious. Especially when you
review a bad game like The Crow.
thanks Nick Garver
I Love Amazon Babes
From: RatMunkey@*******.com
Subject: heh?
ok I agree The Crow: city of angels was a horrible 
movie I wont waste my time explaining why it shouldnt 
have been filmed. The game I havent played but Ill 
take yous guyses word for it. As for your view on 
the first crow movie. It sounds a little silly to 
say it was bad maybe if you understood....but then 
again.. what pissed me off most was your complete 
ignorance on the subject of the comic.....for the 
sake of argument lets say that 1. theres no need to 
express dull opinions in a game reveiw 2. If you 
READ the comic you would understand it. Go pick up 
your latest copy of Amazon BAbes or other pimply 
comic writer's "masterpeices" and enjoy maybe youll 
never know theres better stuff out there
I Underestimate The Power
From: "reality check chick" (*******
Subject: The Crow
Hey! i never saw the game The Crow city of angels, 
and i know that most people hated the second movie, 
but dont bag the first one with Brandon Lee. The Crow 
has power. Its not just some guy smeared in mime paint 
its Symbolism. This guy is an avenging angel. 
Understand that he isnt meant to be artsy, just meant 
to seek revenge. Do a little more research on the 
inspiration behind it and i think you'll understand 
that the comic means something too. James O'bar wrote 
the novel and graphic comic because his wife was 
killed in a car accident. He Needed that novel. I 
needed it when i was in trouble.
Don't underestimate the power of love and death.
