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: Good work!
Hello workers at gaming Revolution! My name is Evan and I live
in NZ. Your site is one of the best I have been to- it is
to-the-point, witty, accurate and full of useful stuff. The
overall quality of your site is great, and I can always count
on it for cheaty cheats, useful reviews and accurate
walkthroughs. By the way, compliments on your GR Rants
section- the pedanticisms of the Editor are funny and
interesting. So, Overall, I would like to say well done,
and keep up the good work!
Oh really! Well your
pedanticisms are terrible, you sorry little...huhn...what?
It means what? Oh right, I knew that.
I was just keeping the readers,
you know...on their toes.
P.S. The Editor tips his
hat to your compliments. And he says there will something extra in your
check next week.
They Came. They Saw. They Smoked.

Hey! Guess what! I just pulled a really long string out of my
sock and used it to floss my teeth!!! Really? Thanks! I thought
you'd be proud of me! A free game? For me? Thank you! So it just
goes to show you kids out there, anything is possible if you
believe in yourself.
PS Winners don't use drugs
Hey Doktor Sokk,
What are you talking about?
All the winners use drugs!
Julius Caesar - Ambrosia
of the Gods (Beer)
Genghis Khan - Opium. Lots and lots of it.
Napolean Bonaparte - Le Crackhead.
Adolf Hitler - We don't know WHAT he was on.
Jesus Christ - Well, Jesus was clean but all his friends were pothead
Okay, so fine - maybe not
all of these guys are "winners." But they sure liked killing
things. Except Jesus. He was just into wood.

Subject: new ad campaign
my friend brought over a porno one time and when we were
watching it we noticed something. in the background we saw
a N64. we paused it and looked closely and in it was diddy
kong racing. now is this a new ad campaign for nintendo?
if so how how will sega and sony deal with this. will they
advertise on other things like, jerry springer, worlds best
police chases, or even on nascar?????
Springer, World's Best Police Chases and NASCAR comparable to pornography?
Well ok, maybe NASCAR and
the World's Best Police Chases. But Jerry Springer?
I always thought of it as
a family show. The brothers and sisters and mothers and uncles and cousins
all seem to show so much passion and affection for one another. It's
obvious that they truly enjoy loving one another.
Then there is Jerry with
his caring and insightful "Final Thought." Who in their right
mind would liken this show, packed with good old American family values,
It's certainly nowhere near
as provocative as, say, Malcom in the Middle or those racy Harry
Potter books. Now that is what you would call a festering
cesspool of depravity.
P.S. Send me the name of
that movie for...uhh...ahem...editorial purposes.

Listen all you "outsiders" might think that this is crazy talk,
but it's not.
nintendo vs. playstation ?
Soon buildings are getting burned , and you game reveiwers
are stuck in the middle of it all.
Dont let the famalies push you guys arond , join forces ,
make an ultimate game geveiw site , FIGHT THE POWER!!!!!
~~~Just a tip , but when the nintendo dolphin add comes out ,
dont look directly into the little dolphin's eye's ,
or you will become loyal to only one family.~~~
Hi cONSPiracy gUy,
Not to worry. We hired Willy
the Fingers and Fats Muligan for protection.
Also, Ben's manning the front
tower with a "Tommy."
P.S. I wouldn't trust those
other publications. I think they're on the "take."
The Best System Revealed!

Subject: Hi can ask u a queston
Hi i would like to start by sain u guys have the best
fen gamein site on the earth.well my queston is i am gonna
buy a new system i have sony and snes and nes but i was
wondering if i should buy a sega dreamcast or a N64 if so
what games should i get and what other accesories
We here at GR get this question
asked to us about 10 times a day. So I will answer this one more time,
and one time only.
If you are itching to get
a new system that does it all and you're wondering
which system that should be, the long awaited answer is:
The George Foreman
Not to be confused with the
'original' Foreman Grill. Oh no - this grill has party technology.
Read all about why this is the system of choice for you cloudy headed
I know, I know. Just check
out the article.
You can thank me later. Don't get all mushy on me.
a tip: Find the games you like. If those game aren't coming out on the
Party Grill, then maybe you shouldn't get one.
