    Milkbone = Your money
    Dog = Interplay
    Shit on the carpet = Interplay cancelling Fallout 3 in favor of Fallout Enforcer.

    By buying the game, you're rewarding Interplay by giving them your money thus validating the crap they do. The fact you may have wanted Fallout 3 instead doesn't change the fact the money still spends the same to Interplay.

    Wow, thats a really great analogy.

    But I've got a gift certificate for Toys R Us; I've got just about every game I want already, I don't have any need for anything else from Toys R Us, and the fucking gift card starts to charge interest if it isn't used in like 3 monthes.

    Might as well, for the sake of being able to write a review on the game, make the sacrifice and give Interplay a LITTLE bit of money.

    And Rosh, yeah OK, I'm fucking stupid because I'm going to spend my money on a game you don't like, I already know this. Come up with some of your famous flamethrowing techniques on me and I'll be impressed and amused, you've got quite the way with words and I'm sure my above text should be enough ammo for you. Just saying 'define stupidity' is below you, man.

    Dude.

    Get something cool. Like Manhunt. or the new Prince of Persia. Those games are rock.

    I've got Manhunt, and my friend has Prince of Persia. Originally I was going to get Kill.Switch, but my best friend already beat it so he mailed me it from Ft. Stewart.

    I'm looking forward to seeing if BOS is as bad as everyone anticipates, and I want to see if they kept anything from the originals... I've seen some screen shots where you've got conversations with choices of what to say, and a screen where you select perks, and the targeting system borrows the red/green outline for enemies and friendlies Fallout 2 had.

    It looks to me though subtle, the game retains a LITTLE bit of Fallout flavor. Besides I'm an unbiased gamer, I want to give the game a fair review, and I'm going to look at it from a gamer's perspective, not as a rabid Fallout fan. If the game sucks the shit right out of my asshole, I'll say it and say why, but if the game actually turns out to be fun and a good gaming experience, I'll say so, too.

    Too bad you were too dense to figure out that there was a URL link attached to those words. It basically pointed out that you completely missed the metaphor, which would be pretty hard to do. Congratulations on missing the completely obvious! No wonder you're so blindly optomistic, it must be nice to have your parents buy you everything to your heart's desire. Now just wait until you have to earn your own money. I could just see you working at McDonald's for 10 hours in order to buy the game, it seems pretty much your speed.

    It's also funny that you try to point out that you're going to be playing as a "gamer". Now if that's synonymous for "utter retard who just wastes money on a game and may or may not like it since they didn't care to do enough background research or can't be bothered to rent it first", then I suppose you may be right on the mark.

    Hell, for a shooter, I can recommend Jak II. From hearing about all the things that Chuck and others tout as "kewL", then Jak II already has it beat.

    Oh, except for the hookers, super-mutants, and option to swear in every conversation. As the lack of attention to Fallout was excused with "it's an alternate timeline", then that just points out that the setting detail is probably nil. So then there's this shooter with auto-aim and different kinds of weapons. Hmm...I found more entertainment in games made by less pretentious and more talented developers.

    Yeah, well your assumption that I've never earned my keep is incorrect.

    I'm an EMT, for one. For two, I got my EMT lisence during my enlistment in the US Army. I know a little bit about hard work for dick pay, and money is kind of a thing I don't have much of, but I do have this "nifty" Barbie gift certificate for Toys R Us my mother thought would be such a great joke of a Christmas present to mail me... What better to spend it on then POS?

    Yeah, I must be retarded, I've done research on the game, and *GASP* it doesn't look all too bad to me! I didn't really like the original Jak, but thanks for the recommendation on the second one, I just may check it out. The reason I'm getting BOS, because a couple years back I was going to get BG: DA, mainly because I was in the Army and didn't have much time to sit down and play a REAL RPG like Fallout, then I heard of Hunter, and decided to wait for it, then I heard of Fallout Enforcer, and well the setting (be it a bastardized Fallout, I still like a wasteland more then fighting zombies or dragons or wahtever), and I've been waiting for it since. I'm LOOKING for a mindless shooter; I've got GOOD games, like Rainbow Six and the like for my action fancy when I've got the time to sit down and play them, but sometimes, I don't have that luxury, so a game where I can just plop down and start wasting people is an attractive buy to me.

    But thanks for gracing me with your presence, its rare that I actually enjoy being flamed by people, but you've just got such a way with words that its almost a privelage. I aspire to be as volitile and abrasive yet brutally straightforward as you someday.

    Maybe you can put out a self-help book or some audio tapes on how to be as talented in the way of being an asshole as you? I'd buy the whole set.

    *shifts his eye from side to side, slowly steps to the reinforced titanium door to the underground nuclear shelter/bunker*
    Well err, I'm going to, well, umm, *looks from side to side again* well, rent it and see if I like it! *quickly goes into the underground shelter/bunker, and bolts the door 526 times*

    Well, that makes it a little better, but you're still paying the devil!

    Can't you pirate? Or wait until it becomes abandonware after a month or so?

    I'd like to, but fucking Toys R Us has an interest on the gift card; If I don't use it soon it will start to lose value and I would hate to have to actually use MY MONEY on BOS... I want to get this fucking Barbie Toys R Us Gift Card out of my wallet as soon as fucking possible.

    Awww, I can feel the family love. That doesn't excuse why the game is poorly designed, however. Here's an idea. Rent a few games and play them, then use the card on whichever you like best.

    But that should have been obvious. Or is it not?

    Sure, how about suicide zombies that blow up, something that is supposed to be a DragonClaw, magic...psionic powers, and cussing out everyone! Oh, such a keeper. It's not that you're going to get the game, you just have little capacity to spot bad game design.

    While I would like to note that I was incorrect in that you've not worked for a living, you've certainly proven that they didn't quite hire you for your intelligence and deductive reasoning, much less your ability in English reading comprehension. Hell, even with English as a second language people could get that metaphor easily. Thank you for proving that we need you as a token clueless guy to point at in example of why it is a good idea to use contraceptives if you're fucking your sister.

    Even if I had a console, I wouldn't buy/rent this trainwreck. Especially considering how many action games there are on the market that actually look good.
