The perils of the Hype Train…

The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

GR Mailbag: Your Ticket to the 7th Level of Hades!

Be Nice!
From: Adam Morris (*******@hotmail.com)


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. P.S. I wish I was as good as you at reviewing games. Queer
Adam,

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 suggest literacy?

-GR

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.

The Adventures of Basil Fawlty

Subject: Random crap...
Hey GR,
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 17 years. Thanks alot.... Loccus
Hi Loccus,

There have already been a few Monty Python games - Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail, which was good, and Monty Python's Meaning of Life, which was not.

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 Croft.

P.S. Some of the biggest lushes we know are Martians. And remember, we know Duke.

Hey Tlcactus,

Game Revolution does not condone, advocate or admit to beating up the police. Except that one time. That was MY donut, dammit!

Hey Richard,

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?
From: John Fell (******@hotmail.com)
Subject: Chris Roberts of Wing Commander fame
Hi
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
John Fell
Hey John,

Chris Roberts' middle name is Mohammad-al-Ikbal-Sadat. Or Joel. We can't remember.

-GR
