From: "Tom Laurie" 
Subject: Plethora no more!
Here's a better word than "plethora" that I just came 
up with, tell me what you think :-)
Massivosity!
From: "Sam Pickford" 
Subject: Got a question? Concern? Comment? Better 
word than "plethora?" Enjoy your list of new words
an awful lot
sh*tloads
buckets-full
heaps
too much
crate-load
superlative volumes
over abundance
assload
f*ckwhack

In respone to one of the letters in last week's mailbag, we got a plethora of suggestions of words synonymous with "plethora." Rather than reprint the veritable plethora of entries here, we decided to post just a few of 'em.

We owe you guys a surplusage of thanks!

Poking The Beholder In The Eye
From: Ahsan Shaikh 
Subject: Every Man's Problem...
Ok, as you all know, there is an ever growing question
as to who is hotter. I know this is probably a waste
of your time, however, I still think you could
enlighten us. So, Brooke Burke or Jules Asner? 
Thanks,
"Dude"

Dear Dude,

Well, they're both certainly hot, though it's really a matter of opinion. Duke, for instance, doesn't think any girl is hot unless she's either married to him or from the 18th century. Ben thinks Brooke and Jules are fine, but neither one holds a candle to Chrissie Snow.

Why take our words for it? Go decide for yourself!

We're sooooooooo impressed.
From: Student Oframona 
Subject: you ass
Whats with all the sarcasm? its so stupid. how can u
think of yurself as a top gaming site when you wont
even answer real gaming questions seriously. i hope
yur server bursts into flams.
------f off

Dear Student,

Thanks! We're sooooo thrilled to be reading your letter, we don't know what to do wth ourselves! This is the BEST letter ever! Thanks for calling us stupid and sarcasitic - we just loooove that!

-GR

P.S. Though Game Revolution is an excellent drummer, we have no intention of bursting into flams.

Lord Of The Races
From: "Griffin Grinnell" 
Subject: Orcs
One day I went to see the movie Lord of the Rings The Fellowship 
of the rings. It came to a part in the movie where it told how 
Orcs were made.They were once elves but then tortured and turned 
into orcs. I was at your sight and saw a preview about Warcraft 3. 
One race was orcs and another one was dark wood elves. 
Is there any difference between the two races? Thanks, your 
sight rocks!

Dear Griffin,

Are there differences between Orcs and Dark Wood Elves? Most certainly! For starters, Orcs are evil while Dark Wood Elves are just sort of in a bad mood all the time. Orcs have really gross skin, while Dark Wood Elves have great complexion. Orcs tend to say things like, "Graar! Og eat halfling! Graar!" while Dark Wood Elves say things like "Fancy a bite of a halfling, darling? Be a dear and pass the basil." Orcs also smell like old socks, while dark Wood Elves smell like brand new socks.

Dear Bilal,

Due to local laws prohibiting public indeceny, we just haven't seen too many nude gamesrecently. But this one time, a game walked into the GR office wearing a really tight shirt and we could totally see its boobs. Almost. If you squinted.
