I get a pretty fair amount of e-mail every day. Sure, most of it is either telling me Mother Nature slighted me, but this new wonder drug can add a few inches, if you know what I mean and I think you do. Another good chunk says barely-18 women with huge breasts are hot and wet for me. Im still trying to reconcile that with the lack-of-length mail; maybe these horny college coeds like, well, Tiny Elvis?
On occasion, we do get mail from folks who actually read the site. I love e-mail, so feel free to write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Want something to stay private? Let me know. Otherwise, Ill regularly share my favorite letters with yall.
First, a great letter from a new reader:
until about ...lets see, yesterday, I had been using gamespot.com for all my reviews and yada yada about games I wanted to check out before i downloaded....now they want you to PAY, to read reviews. this email is probably directed at the wrong person(s), but you're reviews are top notch, at least the same quality, or better, than gamespot.com's pay-to-read reviews...god it makes me mad. this could be a rant, oh my. keep up the good work!
Hell yeah, it could be a rant. More and more review sites are hiding their content behind pay-to-read services. Okay, I understand that. They gotta pay salaries and such. But I just cant do that. First and foremost, our reviews are a service. Youre about to plunk down $50 for a game, and you need to know whether its a good investment. We want to let you know what works and what doesnt, without you having to make another monetary investment.
You want to donate to our cause? Great. Wed love that. But well never force you to pay for reviews while Im in charge youll have to pry the mouse from my cold, dead, about-to-go-zombie-on-your-ass fingers.
We at ESCmag love games as much as anyone. Were in it for the love. And the horny coeds.
In my Jedi Knight II review, I bemoaned the lack of a recording device for Jedi battles. Dr. Uwe Girlich came to my rescue:
project provides recording capabilities for Jedi Outcast (and 4
other Q3A based games).
In response to another comment in my Jedi Knight II review: "Jedi Outcast is a great entry in the series, and will I hope provide LucasArts with a great foundation for more quality games. Full Throttle 2 is on the way is it too much to ask for another Sam & Max title?"
Lucasarts sold Sam & Max to a cartoon company, sorry. Unless they buy the rights back, Sam & Max Hit The Road will probably be the only Sam & Max game. Just thought you'd like to know.
Damn! Damn damn! I say we rise up and take back the Sam & Max rights. Whos with me? Give me an hour with these coeds hell, make that 10 minutes and well surf the highway.
