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: The Sims
I downloaded the nude patch a long time ago, and it
works fine. Also, from another site, I downloaded a
bunch of skins that included a male nude. No, I
don't have a porn mine, but I would love to have a
nudist colony in The Sims (not kids). Is there anywhere
I can get a nude female (not just when taking baths) skin?
You 're a really smart guy
to pick the nudist colony over the porn mine. Just think of all those
claim jumpers you would have to deal with...
P.S. There are plenty of
places where you can find what you are looking for, but we'll talk about
that when you're a little older and show proper ID.

Ok, im sorry but all you people out there looking for
nude patches of all the girls in the games out there,
u guys are pathetic. My guess about you guys is
1) your single
2)Your gonna be single for a while
3)You havn't gotten very far with a girl
4)In your mind you have but you were by yourself
Now there's nothing wrong with games with girls in them
but man, if you wanna see some chick naked, go get it
on-line or something. Thanks GR if i get in the mail-bag
IM expecting some sarcasim behind this reply.
To test your theory, we posed
your guesses to the GR Staff. The answers were unanimous:
3. Hmmm...I walked a girl to the bus stop once. Isn't that far enough?
The bus came. She got on it. I went home. She
had a bus pass. She knew where she was going. Besides, my friend just

IM wondering about is that is metal gear solid 2 gowing to be on
the playstation and for the playstation 2 and i was saying that if
you could send me some pictures of metal gear sold 2 that would be
great thanks and can you send me pictures big not little ones about
30 to 40 pictures will do thanks
30 to 40 pictures? Sure,
no problem. Anything else we can do for you? Build you a 30 to 40 room
mansion, perhaps? Compress a few pieces of coal into 30 or 40 diamonds
barehanded, maybe? We live to serve, oh wise Master Sagoo. May we rub

Subject: legend of baboon
well it seems to me that whne you buy a fun game like say
legend of dragoon. you usually expect it to play when you
put it in your playstation. and yes it was a playstation
not a waffle iron with a psx sticker on it. well i put it
in and at first it started the a just say no sign appear
that said system data terminated call this number.
i called and they said " do you have a mod chip?" i said
no they said" you got a game shark?" i said yes
then he says" oh well theres this new code thing that
makes it unable to play with those devices in it"
i was mad so i took the game shark out like the guy said
aand presto, my system data was still terminated. now why
make a game where no one can play it, unless you like to
play legend of the terminated system data. i was just
wondering why lamestation would do a thing
like this?????? when i buy game i like play game.
not look throught the manual wishing i was playing it.
Legend of the Terminated
System Data? Can I get a nude patch for that?

Subject: GETTING STUPID AND PLAYING PONG!!!!!! :)
hey there you fine people at game revolution. first of
all i just want to start out by saying that you folks
have a killer web site here and i enjoy it very, very
much. with that said i have a comment and a couple
questions to throw your way. one of my favorite video
games in the world is the new rendition of pong for
the playstation!!!!! this game is more then just a
game to most of my friends and i. to us, pong is more
of a way of life. like whenever we are in a bad mood
we will normally just rip a couple tubes and "pong it
up." that game is so fun!!!!!!!!! :p anyway, here is
my question.......do you know the name of the man who
created pong? id like to know who he is because i think
he is a genius far beyond the likes what the rest of the
world thinks is genius. this man needs to be celebrated
and i want to know who he is!! :) my second question is
about "the sims" for the macintosh. i checked out the
aspyr website and they didnt have a release date on
there for it. i also called my local game retailer and
they told me it was coming out july 15th. can you guys
give me some info on that? im on the east coast, so id
like to know the official east coast shipping of that
game if possible. god IM a pain in the ass arent i? :)
oh well. You people totally kick ass and once again
i love your site!!!!!!!!! stay stoked.........
Yes, we think the guy who
created Pong is a genius as well. Only a brain with neurotransmitters
firing at the speed of sound could come up with something so revolutionary
as a ball bouncing off a wall.
We did some research and
discovered that the founders of Atari, Nolan Bushnell and Al Alcorn,
were responsible for this brilliant piece of programming. I wouldn't
send 'em any mail, though...they'd probably send it right back.
P.S. Neurotransmitters travel
faster than the speed of light in a "normal" human being.
