The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Cloning, New Processors & Circumcision.

Subject: The many fake Bar Mitzvahs
I sincerely hope that, noted in last week's
mailbag, that Duke doesn't adhere to the full idea of the
Bar Mitzvah. I mean... that'd be a little painful, don'tcha
think? You know what they do at Bar Mitzvahs. That'd require
alot of reconstructive surgery.I know I'm being vague, but
that's only because I'm not fully aware of what is acceptable
to post in this public display of humorously charged mail-
bagging-goodness. Oh, on a side note: I love this site.
I wish to somehow artificially create it's children in a
petree dish so there could be a whole family of GR sites that
would eventually grow large enough to reach out and crush every
misleading, uninformative, bland, and often bribed game review
magazine in the planet. It is a far fetched dream, I know...
but.... I can still pray, right?
A faithful reader type.
P.S. Any opinions on the AMD XP processor?
You may want to look up Bar
Mitzvah in the dictionary.
Surgery has nothing to do with the ceremony or event. Not many 13 year
old boys living in the West are subject to the, ahem, "snipping"
of their little "fireman." True, some cultures' men (like
the Massai) are put under the knife when they are between 12 and 16
years of age, as part of their rite of passage.
But Duke doesn't live in
Kenya. He lives in New York.
And by the way, we all already
live in a petri dish. We're actually the first clones ever, before they
worked out the bugs. And would you believe we still don't have a union?
P. S. Our opinion on the
new AMD XP processor is that they should send us all one each.

It's hard for me to say this so, I'll just say it. I think you
guys are brilliant. I've been visiting this site twice or thrice
a week and it just keeps getting better. More funnier, more cooler,
more revolutionary. I developed a D and MD habit because of your
wonderful site (That's Doritos and Mountain Dew). I do have a few
questions though, if the kings of game reviewing don't mind. Have
you ever tried Hot Pockets? Beef & Cheddar or Pepperoni? Are there
or have there ever been any females at GR? If so, and they're
relatively hot, may I have their phone numbers? Does PSO absolutely
suck offline? If Superman is from Krypton, why is Kryptonite his
Will you ever give an A to a game?
(YOU HIGH-STANDARD BASTARDS!) Are your mothers aware
of your addictions to Mountain Dew and Doritos? Ok, no more
questions (although I know you're dying to answer them)

I think most people are robots).
Dear Unfortunate AOL Subscriber,
We are sad to hear of your
new addiction, as we too have fallen slave to the artificially flavored
tortilla devil and her temptuous golden cheesy goodness.
Unfortunately, there is no
cure. You're hooked for life. Just don't start stealing and robbing
people to support your trendy Dorito habit.
But while we can't help with
your addiction, we can answer your questions.

2. Are there or have there ever been any females at GR?
Once, long ago, a woman made
it into the office. But this was before we had all the hi-tech security
systems installed. I'd like to see a skirt get through now that we have
our Anti-Women Security
Task Force on the case.

entirely. Unless, of course, you give it these.
4. If Superman is from
Krypton, why is Kryptonite his biggest weakness?
Because it reminds him of
those painful family holidays when all the Els would come together and
get hooched off their super asses and start revealing taudry family
We tried to come up with
another solution, but it was getting too nerdy.

I heard Shenmue II was cancelled. How the hell did this happen?
I know I don't sound like I care but, I almost bled tears when I
found out. This is such bullsh!t. The game must have been

Dear Another Unfortunate
We feel your pain. It's like

Yes, it's true folks. Shenmue
II has been canceled for the Dreamcast in North America, though
the game will still be released in Japan. Hope you have a good importer.
And we're sure many of you would like 10 minutes alone with the Sega
