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...
Subject: Sucky review on Syphon Filter 2
All I have to say is that I think you suck butt at
giving reviews on games. Who cares how the guy runs
on the game and who cares about the explosion sounds.
I personally could care less. All people care about
is how fun the game is and the graphics. The more
challenging the better. If you have anything to say
to me e-mail me.
I wish I was as good as you at reviewing games. Queer
Rosan Kabar! Your wish has
been granted! You, dear reader, are now as good at reviewing games as
we are! The power feels kind of tingly, eh?
For your next wish, may we
P.S. Both Syphon Filter 1
and 2 are fabulous games. However, watching an entire game of Gabriel
Logan waddling around as if he'd been violated by the North American
Man-Boy Love Association is not my idea of good animation.

Here's my idea for a game. Two words: Monty Python. That would be a
great game. And what kind of alochol should I use for a date? I've
never drank before because I've been living on mars for the past
We think Fawlty Towers would
be a better game. You would have to come up with the most interesting
way to insult your wife and the hotel guests. Manuel could be your sidekick
that always needs kicking, and because of John Cleese's physical comedy,
your character would possess an even wider array of moves than Lara
P.S. Some of the biggest
lushes we know are Martians. And remember, we know Duke.
Bad Boys, Bad Boys...!

I crashed and lost all. Looking for a game I downloaded
called pig bashing.
Game Revolution does not
condone, advocate or admit to beating up the police.
Except that one time. That was MY donut, dammit!

Glad you liked it. This winter
we will be releasing SimClue where you get to play as a GR reader
who has absolutely no clue as to what we do at Game Revolution.
What's My Name?

Subject: Chris Roberts of Wing Commander fame
An Aussie subscriber is in need of your help to be able to
maintain face in a computer game quiz.
The question is what is Chris Roberts middle name.
I have spent hours on the net all to no avail, a 1001
entries for Chris Roberts, but no middle name.
Hope you can help
Chris Roberts' middle name
is Mohammad-al-Ikbal-Sadat. Or Joel. We can't remember.
