REVIEWS Funk of Titans Review
It’s always particularly tough to find the funk of a game when it already doesn’t have much rhythm.

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Subject: PC Presents..
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.
Dear Soon To Be Conquered,

Omigosh! The Crow! How could we forget?

Oh wait. Now we remember. Here's how we forgot.

Give our best to the wimpy King Albert II and his son, the little "girlie" Prince Phillipe. Their waffle-eating days are numbered.

Hello Chaze,

...our all time favorite game ever made? Hmmm...

Ben says his would have to be Handball, the kind using the big red Voit ball.

Brian is quite fond of H-O-R-S-E, since he was the only person in his 4th grade class who could actually spell it.

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. Eventually wakened 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 Connect Four.

Size doesn't matter. It's how you support your, ahem, hardware.

Dear a.k.a. Bill Gates,

After running your grammatically impaired letter through several different translation programs, we think we know what you're talking about.

Now please, Bill, put down the bottle and calm down. You don't need to send us drunken letters. We love you, Bill. We're here for you. But the first step is to admit that you have a problem.

And yes, you do have a problem.

Don't Make Him Put On His Pants.
From: ssgoku23 (***@hotmail.com)
Subject: Who do I trust?!?!??!?
Ok, so I have a subscription to PCGamer and I saw a 
review for Rune, that great viking combat game (which 
I have yet to buy). They gave the game an "above average" 
rating of 67%, saying that the design is "monotonous", the 
magic takes too long to recharge, and that there is 
minimal plot involvement. What say you, Sal Magicpants?
Greetings Sayin Warrior,

Sal does agree that the single player is a few skulls short from an exemplary trophy case, though calling it "monotonous" is unfair.

But obviously the boys over at Gamer didn't give the multiplayer a shot, as this is where the power of Rune truly shines. Perhaps they were frightened at the thought of having their collective head sliced off by my trusty blade...and for good reason.
