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: when sega characters attack!!!
if sonic and knuckles got into a fight who do you think
would win and i don't mean a boxing match i mean hardcore
battle royal like in UFC
Now that's not very smurfy. They just need to smurf down and smurf out.
Smurf a bowl of smurf, until they're feeling so smurfy that fighting
would just be so unsmurf.
P.S. In the Bay Area, you
can find the best smurf on the corner of 82nd and Smurf.
More Fun, Less Codes.

i have been a big fan of yours for about two years now
i have sent you guys more than 50 cheats none have been posted
i go through a lot of trouble getting a chance to play these
games (stores,freinds,youthcenters,buying,etc.). it takes alot
of time to discover these cheats(4-5 hours)many people would
like these and i feel that i am not getting recognized i have
not recieved any e-mails from you like your message says after
sending cheatsi have sent you 4 cheats today for medal of honor
please take consideration to thess i dont like buying games
and spending valuable time for no reason
can i have a free game????????please????? i never win your
I have an idea. Why don't
you buy your games to play and have fun and entertain
yourself? Buying games to find codes just so you can send them to a
game site seems a little odd.
However, I could be wrong.
I've been wrong before...once.

Could you guys start doing more reviews for MAC games.
I mean like Rainbow Six, Sim City 3000 and stuff. With the
G4 out a lot of companies are starting to port over games
to the Mac. And well Im mad that you do not do any newer
MAC games. Well that is all I have to say.
-Big Mac Ethiopia
Sure! You want Mac reviews?
No problem. Make the check for $4000 out to Game Revolution. Those G4s
ain't cheap, ya know.
P.S. If I owned a G4, I'd
feel like I needed to use it to find the cure for AIDS or something.
You don't spend 4 grand on a machine, play Sim City 3000 on it and expect
to sleep well at night.
is something terrifying about the name Big Mac Ethiopia.

Tony Hawk The RPG...?

Subject: The new Religion of gaming goodness
The reason why i'm writing this to you, is to tell you
about a cool idea.
The idea is that you guys should talk to Activision
and Neversoft to tell them to make a an RPG Tony Hawk
Pro Skater game......(you know level 1 u learn a
shovet, level 2 you learn a kickflip, level 3 a
It should be called THPS RPG
Yeah! And Tony could have
a big, fluffy, flying howler monkey sidekick named Zuffie. They could
travel the land searching for the sacred skateboard, collecting holy
skate gems shaped like trucks.
Or how about Betty Ford:
The Adventure Game? You get to play a strung-out, crack junkie gamer
who is trying to get admitted to the Betty Ford clinic.
