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...

The front page feature review being DAIKATANA, as if
anyone gives a shit anymore.
PLEASE get your act together; the reviewers are competent and
informative, but hella slow.
Morten and Mingxing
Hey Morten and Mingxing,
Point taken, though the
review is no longer on the cover.
guys may want to check out Daikatana again. Any FPS player will tell
you that John Romero's new little bundle of joy is at least as much
fun as being trapped in an all white room, with just you and a 13 inch
television set playing consecutive, non-stop episodes of Rikki Lake
in Spanish. Es muy bien.
But just barely.

Three people who bought the PC version of Daikatana from
Electronic Boutique immediately demanded refunds.
Daikatana actually sold three
copies? We're impressed.
P.S. Retailer won't take
back your Daikatanas? Then send them to Game Revolution. For every used
copy of Daikatana we receive, Game Revolution will send out one pickled
mango seed, one letche seed, or one used Kleenex tissue. You get to
While supplies last!

I have been a loyal reader for a long time and I have a
1. Remember the Harlem Globetrotters cartoons? Wouldn't it be
sooo cool if they made a game of them? You could pull something
out of the one dudes afro as an inventory!
2. I miss ALF. They need to make virtual ALF. Kinda like Teddy
Ruxpin, only for the computer. That'd be cool. Who do you
think should delvelop it?
3.Do you guys like toast as much as I hope you do (alot)?
1. Yes, we remember. And no, that would not be cool. I mean think about
it - the Globetrotters always win. Where's the fun in that?
Subject: for adults only
is any ever going to come out with a nude video
game if they do it should be one about fear effect
that hanna is hott... puuuuuuuuuuurrrrrr
There have been plenty
of nude video games. Pac-Man was nude. Donkey Kong was quite nude. Q-bert?
Nude, nude, nude.
The most famous nude video
game of all time, however, has to be Kirby. Plus, he's fat. Nude and
fat - what a stellar combination!
P.S. Don't ever, ever, ever
purr at me again.
