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: psx2 muy bueno
I was wondering if the PSX2 will need a mod chip to play
imports and my "backups" that I have for my regular
playstation. Is it too early to ask these sorts of silly
questions or is the information beyond your infinite
knowledge and gaming wisdom? I sacrificed my sister to
appease the GR gaming
gods, hopefully I will be rewarded.
"...or is the information
beyond your infinite knowledge and gaming wisdom?" BAH! Nothing
friend, is beyond our infinite knowledge, hence the infinite
part. Now what was your question?
P.S. Your sister was delightful.
More rain for your village.

Subject: Your Advice on the Best New Console
Whats up? Me and my friends were arguing over the best
"new age" console to buy. One of us says that the Nintendo
Dolphin is going to be the best, and Nintendo is a reliable.
One of us says that the Playstation was full-on dope and
that the PS2 must be 10 times better PLUS it can play old
PS games. Then again, I say that Bill Gates has a good
thing going, and that the X-Box (even with a dumb name)
by the numbers is the best. What do you guys think?
After that we argued over gay rights (my friend is a
little .........), the upcoming presidental election,
and the better show, the Simpsons or the Family Guy.
If you can, help us out. Thanx.
Hmmm.... Interesting debate
topics, there guys. Video games, politics, sexuality, and sitcoms. I
think you guys have it all covered. Too bad none of you are anywhere
near close to understanding who will dominate the gaming industry in
the years to come.
What does Sony have to offer?
DVD playback and backward compatibility...woohoo. Bill and his X-Rated
Box. Hard drives and more power than the Hulk on steroids does not impress
me in the slightest. Oh, and Nintendo with their Plankton...or is it
Minnow? Ah, whatever.
You want me to tell you who
is going to reign supreme in 2001? Tiger, that's who. Tiger Electronics
and their handheld gaming devices are set to usher in a new sense of
realism not seen since the glorious days of Pong. With over 160
brick-dropping games, Tiger looks poised to conquer.
Well, read it and weep boys.
Tiger is going all the way in the 01.
P.S. The Simpsons wins, hands

Subject: GAME RATINGS
I really should congratulate you for your accurateness in your games
ratings... It just straighthly reflects my own thoughts about most of
the games... Such accurateness is hardly and scarcely found in any
Gamers' Web Site
Glad to hear you agree with
our reviewers. The ironicness of our reviewers' accurateness
is that all of our reviewers are refugees pulled from the ocean while
escaping from Third World countries. We keep them chained in the cellar,
far from sunlight and even farther from outside contact. They have never
played or even heard of video games. But they sure know their grammafication
P.S. Please send all angry
e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org.

You tell 'em, man! Who wants
to spend 50 bucks on a game and then actually play it, when you can
just sit back on your couch and watch it? Sheesh, the nerve of some
