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...

Subject: Game Endings
Great site! I absolutely love your 'Game Endings' section. Thank you for providing such a wonderful resource.
I do however, have a complaint/suggestion regarding the game endings. Many of the endings stop very frequently in order to download more of the video file itself, this results in very choppy video and ruins the overall experience. I suggest you incorporate a preloader for all of the game endings so that the entire file loads before it plays. It also might be nice to add a play bar to the videos so that viewers could play, pause, stop, scrub and see how long each video file is.
My two cents,
Thanks for the compliment! And up yours for the criticism! We give and give and give, and you bitch and bitch and bitch.
The truth is, we agree with your comments and are already looking into solutions. Right now we're just amped to get the endings online and working...and you should be too, you ingrate.

Subject: HTML errors
Hi guys! I downloaded an add-on to my Firefox browser (the HTML validator) and I noted that there are a whopping 14 HTML errors (and 60 warnings) just on your home page code. This doesn't cause any trouble for now, but I think you should check your code before something really goes wrong... PS: GR was the first site I saw errors in ; almost all the others had a dozen warnings or so, but none had real code errors.
We'd like to thank you for writing in with this urgent news, and quickly dismiss it as complete BS.
</p? Look, we're a &#lsquo website &#rsquo, and html coding is <emfasis>a big part of what we do</emfasis>, to say the least. With that in mind, we didn't just 3mploy a team of monkeys to build this thing, we employed a crack team</a> of genius monkeys, who, this very moment, are throwing poop in your general direction. $$##^%^% <pooop>

What Witchery Is This?

Recently, rpgdot.com had a poll about what rpg (duh) coming out in 2006 you want most. The choices were Gothic 3, Oblivion, the Wticher, and NeverWinter Nights 2 and none of the above. At first, the Witcher was second to last with only 3.0% But then, all of us on the Witcher board united, and got it up to 27.6% and second place! Unfortunately, the guys at rpgdot.com realized that we tried to fix the poll. But still. Just wanted to tell you guys cause it might be interesting, and we here on the Witcher boards are now trying to spread word of how great the Witcher is going to be when it comes out. So, that's it. Check out the game.
Dear Fanboy John,
LOL, but still? But still what? You almost tricked people into thinking The Witcher was a widely anticipated game, but still it isn't?
With fans like you, The Witcher doesn't need critics.

LoveChess: Age of Egypt released
We are happy to announce that the new version of Lovechess has been released. With its combination of erotica and chess, LoveChess was the first erotic game that showed sexual action in a stylish, humorous and light-hearted way. Now, this unique concept got even better with the release of Lovechess : Age of Egypt.
Here are the most significant improvements and new features:
Advanced and new animations
Play against a human opponent (local/online/LAN)
New characters based on the Gods of Egypt
New and improved chess-engine
If you would like to download a review copy of the game please send us your name and preferred e-mail address to receive the download instructions. Send your review request to ********.
If you have any questions or requests just let us know.
The LoveChess development team
God, that's so hott, it needs an extra T! We didn't see the porn/chess connection before, but now it makes perfect sense! In just a few easy steps, we too can turn Deep Blue into Deep Throat or Lovechess into Lovelace.
