Multiplayer online battle arenas have grown in popularity, yet Super Evil Megacorp hopes to give the franchise new, vibrant life on tablet. I went hands-on to find out if it can be done.
This is another article from Blistered Thumbs I wrote, back from the dead after being buried in the way-back machine. I posted this back in April of 2013, and many of the issues present seem to be prevalent right now in some cases, namely the decrees of sexism and misogony. Considering current...
Subject: Snuggles Commanded, I Obeyed
About a month ago I signed my E-mail address up for
your spiffy newsletter. Well, being the weird freak
that I am, (so my mom dropped me on my head, big deal)
I clicked the hyper link labeled "Transsexual
I came across a very entertaining picture of the
Snuggles Bear dressed in a leather bondage suit.
Now comes the problem. About a week ago I was on
trying to sign up my other E-mail address, because
I am about to lose this one, and I decided to save
the picture. To my surprise I could no longer find
it!!!!! I just was wondering if by chance someone
had called A. B. B. R. (Association for Bound Bears
Rights) or if you had just taken it of. My demands
you ask. I want the Bondage Bear back, a package of
Slim Jims, and napkins for life.

Please use your influence with Eidos to get them to
write a Tomb Raider game where Laura marries Santa
Clause and then goes slowly insane and kills him.
I'm an accountant and I hate Santa Clause.
Dear Robert Hirohito99,
Maybe we can call the game

You guys do a great job keep it up. I love that mail bag,
and how you make fun of the white middle class teenagers
with too much time than to bitch about video game and
how your all idiots. How can I get a job playing video
games, then reviewing it. Keep up the good work.
Viva game revolution. Long live Karl Marx and unite
the black power agaisnt the man and the system
which opressed the black man.
Karl Marx is the answer.
His big moustache, furry eyebrows and love of cigars make him our favorite
Marx brother. I love the one where he's at that party with the socialites,
and then that lady asks him what he's doing there, and then he takes
her drink and pours it down her dress and says something funny.

I think someone was asking about Adenine, Thymine,
Guanine and Cytosine. They are the five nitrogenous
bases (cytosine, guanine, adenine, thymine and uracil)
that helps make up the code in DNA and RNA. These
nitrogenous bases pair with one another to make the
"step" of the DNA double-helix molecule.
Which would probably explain why they have it on REX.
They are the bases of all DNA, and hence the genome
project. Hope it helps :)
DNA and RNA? Aren't those
new hip hop groups?
Besides, we all know that
the origin of life doesn't come from your so-called "science."
It comes from a little bird we like to call the "stork." Duh!

Before I get started on this, thanks for posting my
E-MAIL on your censorship issue. I hope many
people got to read it. The reason I'm writing this E-MAIL
is because I just read your mailbag about the game, and
the movie 'The Crow'.
These people who are bashing you and telling you
that you should not say those things about the movie
or the game must not live in the United States.
Because if they do, they have forgotten one
thing........it's a free country. You can say whatever
you want whether they like it or not. Kind of reminds
me that CyberPatrol thinks GR should be blocked for
inappropriate viewing. The lesson to be learned here
is that all these issues are a matter of opinion.
Just keep doing what you have been doing GR, a
good job. As I said before, it's a free
Oh Beautiful, for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain....for purple

It's great that you guys run a sweet site that
gives the best cheats and codes, but do you gotta
be such smartasses? I thought not.
It's not our fault that our
asses are so smart. We don't even let them read!
