FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

GR Mailbag: What Are You People Smoking?

Make Your Own Codes!
From: pablo zapata giraldo (*******@demasiado.com)
Subject: Nerdy question
Hi.
I been reading you for quite a while, and I have a short 
question: How the hell do people to figure out the game 
codes and secrets? Well, secrets doesn't seem too difficult, 
but "in the menu screen press triangle, X, circle and tap (fast) 
L1, L1, R2" Damn! Do they  really sit down for days and begin 
the festival of good old "trial  and error" method? Since I 
dont live in the U.S. this is like a total  freaking mistery 
to me. Holy Giant Robots, please answer me (and I don't mean the 
ones from  Evangelion or Xenogears -go Weltall go!-)

Hey what's up Pablo,

How do we find out the button codes? Oh, it's simple. Anyone can do it.

First you reverse the polarity on your trusty Ion Conductors. Then take some spare Uranium 14, compute the beta decay, transverse your positron callibrator, and you're done! Oh, don't forget to press 'Start.'

Legos, Erector Sets and Tangoes

Subject: cats
a game where u build a cat and a game where u scramble 
up the cat and u slid the pieces back together to make the cat
Hey Sharon,

Great game idea. Unfortunately, there already is a game with this premise. It is called "Tangoes" by Rex Games Inc.

We are not joking! They don't pay me enough to make this stuff up.

Absolute Cosmic Power!!
From: (*****@aol.com)
Subject: I have to have the most extensive roster for 
WWF Attitude I just completed putting together my roster 
for my WWF Attitude game for my  Sony Playstation, and 
not counting the superstars already included in the game, 
I have created an additional 210 wrestling superstars, 
past and present, ranging from the late, greats (Andre 
The Giant, Brian Pillman, Rick Rude, etc.), to the 
legendaries (Ted DeBiase, Ultimate Warrior, etc.), and 
into today's stars from the WWF, WCW, and ECW (Goldberg, 
Rikishi, Sandman, etc.). God, I love wrestling!!!
Wow! That is incredible. You have achieved what most of us could only dream of. I can't even comprehend the fame, wealth and social status that you now command. Creating those wrestlers is like transcending time and space, elevating your consciousness beyond that of mortal men.

Man, you're like...like Orko from He-Man or something.

'No One Likes Sony'
From: "Wheelers" (******@dreamscape.com)
Subject: ps2 no anti-aliasing bad??
I read your article on the ps2 and didn't like a part 
of it, where you said the  dreamcast was better than 
the ps2 in graphics because of anti-aliasing. all  
anti-aliasing is, is a technical name for blurring 
the picture. If you want that,  get a TV where you 
can change the picture between soft and sharp and 
make the picture  soft. and the ps2 has direct Mem 
to share(32mb on ps2, 16mb on dreamcast), 
the 8mb vram to 4 Mb vram doesn't matter all that 
much unless the game only uses the 4mb.  Also which 
one has dvd, oh yeah the ps2 there you go digital 
over analog also dvd  can have about 6.2 gig games 
on one disc, lets see dreamcast try that. Sony also 
says the ps2 is getting a modem but feels that regular 
56kbs will be the past in a  little while so they 
don't want you to be stuck with the Slow old 56k 
while the x-box  boasts a t1 line or dolphin gets 
fiber op.(usb ports, Type III PCMCIA Card Slot) 
it  has room to grow. just give it time and you 
will see the true power of the ps2.  As for the 
giving away a dreamcast, its just a last resort 
on a sale of the console  even though it does 
sound tempting I'm not going to get one of those 
pieces of junk (I've seen better graphics on some 
of the psx games, RE3's beginning was awesome,  
the cops looked real, hopefully they weren't or 
I'm locking myself in my basement).
Chad "reckziw"
Wheelers,

Yeah, I feel the same way you do; Sony sucks. Speaking of Sony, how much are they paying you over there?

P.S. "all anti-aliasing is, is a technical name for blurring the picture." Damn straight. And a fax machine is just a toaster with a phone attached!
