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...

Ok, for the online shoping thing you have..you forgot to put
"The Crow: City of Angles" on there. That was one sweet game.
Excuse me, I must return to my native tribe in Belgium.

Shawn's favorite game was
Freeze Tag, until one day when he was tagged...by a leprechaun!
Frozen in place for some
9 years, he became
a sort of chronological fixture in his hometown of South Bend, Indiana.
by a crack squad of gaming scientists, Shawn was taught the latest Ebonics
and enough Japanese to effectively play import games.
Now his favorite game is
You Poor, Sick Bastard
