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...

Reasons the Playstation 2 is better then the xbox and the
gamecube. The gamecube basically looks like the old playstation
on steroids,it has good graphics but on the playstation 2
you can play dvd movies why get the gamecube when you can
get the playstation 2 which has everything the gamecube
has plus it plays movies.
Now the xbox is a little better
than the playstation 2 the graphics and the speed are
a little faster. But on the xbox you have to wait for
games to come out while on the playstation 2 you can play
the old playstation games its like having two consoles.
Plus do you want your xbox to be as complicated as your
computer or windows 98 one of the good things about
games on a console is that all you have to do is put in a cd
and start playing you don't have to worry about upgrades,
memory and defragmentation. And knowing micro$oft your going
to have to bye programs and a hole bunch of stuff you
might as well getanother computer.
microsoft already makes games for computers so
instead of getting the xbox just buy microsoft games
for your computer,you also have to wait an entire year for yhe 
xbox.
p.s. i think all futere consoles will be and should be
like the xbox more like computers i just dont think it 
should be the xbox that is secsesfull.
Hey Apollo.

It seems that I must remove a foot from yet another gamer's pie-hole.

While I do not pledge any allegiance whatsoever to Microsoft (at least until that check arrives), I must swiftly set the record straight for the Sun God here and his ill-informed comments regarding the Xbox.

The wonderful appeal about the Xbox is that it should not be anywhere near as complicated as your computer. It's a console system, meaning that it should have a hardware standard. No software installation. No hardware compatibility issues, and hopefully no drivers or patches to juggle.

You buy an Xbox game, you put it in your system and you can play it that day without any headache.

Also, let's not forget the list of developers. Nearly every company under the sun, Apollo, is making games for this puppy.

P.S. Sheesh, you guys up there on Mt. Olympus just think you know everything. I can forgive you, though. I know the ambrose is probably really potent up there.

HI! How do you play this game pleas can you tell me 
thank you
You plug it in. Then you move the thing around and pick up the other things. When your meter gets high enough, push a button and the things will blow up.

Oh, and make sure you kill the guy on that level. He's hard. But whatever you do, don't touch the thing over there. No, not that thing. The other one.

This game is so much fun...ah, you just wouldn't believe it.

Hello GR,
I got a few questions,
Since i sit on my butt, playing my PC all day long and 
eating junk food, Do you think that this will efect my 
health? I never do any sports or stuff. I'm on my Pc or 
Dreamcast 24/7. All my freinds call me lazy and stuff. 
So like will i get really fat when i'm older, or what. 
Hi there,

Yes, you should be concerned. Your glucose intake should always be strictly monitored. Too much sugar & sodium can lead to high blood pressure.

Also, regular exercise is quite important. The prevention of muscle atrophy is the key to a healthy...er...huh? Oh sorry dude, gotta go! Someone's trying to snatch my turn at NFL2K1, plus Ben just got back from 7-Eleven with the nachos and Mountain Dew.

where do you get those cool guns?
Hey reader,

We got our cool guns from the last GameFan invasion. To discover the ancient secrets behind Game Revolution, they tried scaling the walls of the GR Compund. Thankfully, our turret men, Lara Croft and a legendary arse-whoopin' in NFL2K1 over SegaNet took care of them, and we found some cool guns when searching the bodies.

Belgium, beware!
