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...

GR Mailbag: Taking out the trash one letter at a time

Subject: what I would do for a PSX 2
If you would please send me a PSX 2 with a good sports
game to play I will invite all of you to a party. My
parties are good. There will be dancing. Lots and lots
of dancing. There will be coffee and tea. There will
be a bear on roller skates. There will be men with no
coordination juggling. Time will stand still and we
will play ouji board. The children will all receive a
free snow-cone. Everyone will get to play a video game
of their choice. Old men will be able to hit a homerun
from a major league fast ball thrown by Randy Johnson.
I promise to buy a magical keg that never runs out and
I will invite girls who like to kiss. It'll be fun but
not unless you send me a PSX 2.
Hmmm....not a bad offer.
What would the rest of you do for a PS2? Send your party invites, bribes,
jugglers and sno-cones to email@example.com.
But please, no more kissing girls. We've got plenty of them.

Why don't you guys have pic's of yourselves on the site?
or is it cuz the flash of the camra will be the only
light you have seen in day?
PS: is a whale-shark a whale or a shark?
Dear none none,
We don't put pics of ourselves
on the site because we're too darn handsome. Our rugged yet gentle exteriors,
our statuesqe frames, our piercing eyes and well-crafted hairstyles
would undermine our efforts. We want you to love us for our minds, not
our powerful calves, washboard abs, or bulging biceps. Though love us
you will, if you ever catch a glimpse of our jaw-dropping, Hurculean
We even wear capes.
P.S. A Whale shark is a shark. It's the word's largest fish. But we
could kick its fishy ass any day of the week.
The GR Sims
From: "Paul D. Mills" (*****@home.com)
you should make a patch for the sims where the sims
walk around naked and you can watch them have sex and they
can smoke pot and stuff like that
You must mean the "GR
Office" patch. We're working on it. Don't bogart the chips.

Very true. Duke Nukem: Zero
Hour was pretty fun, but the babes didn't look great. And yes, the levels
can get irritating.

I used to be another stupid, slow gangster, but ever
since I was shot in the leg last week, IÂ´ve been
hyper-inteligent and able to control your computers
from anywhere. Give me a bandage, a pack of slim-jims
and 100.000 dollars or I will delete the entire page
A threat? Who do you think shot you in the first place? By the way,
you misspelled "intelligent."
