Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Again With the Nudity!
From: "Bob" (*******@aol.com)


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? Thanks?
Hey Bob,

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...

-GR

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.

No Girlfriend? No Wonder!
From: "McMasters" (*******@prodigy.net)


Subject: Check out the set of Graphics on her 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. PJM
Hey McMasters,

To test your theory, we posed your guesses to the GR Staff. The answers were unanimous:

1. Check.
2. Check.
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 got Diablo 2.
4. Check.

It's all about priorities.

Anything You Want.
From: "Sagoo" (*****@cableinet.co.uk)
Subject: metal gear solid
hi i think that this web page is great but theres one thing that
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 
a lot 
Sagoo 
Hey Sagoo,

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 your back?

Lamestation!
From: jessie (*****@aol.com)
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.
thank you
jessie
Hi Jessie,

Legend of the Terminated System Data? Can I get a nude patch for that?

Subject: GETTING STUPID AND PLAYING PONG!!!!!! :)
"From Wak"
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.........
-lucid
Hello Lucid,

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. Astounding!

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.

-GR

P.S. Neurotransmitters travel faster than the speed of light in a "normal" human being.
