OTHER PERFECTLY LEGITIMATE REASONS TO NOT LIKE UBISOFT:
It releases the same squad-based game only with a different name at least five times a year, triggering a Pavlovian reaction in us that makes us turn off everything electrical in the house upon hearing the phrase "Tom Clancy's...". Being MADE to review Splinter Cell because no one ever wants to review Splinter Cell because Splinter Cell is boring, too hard and rubbish, and only liked by weirdos who pay fat prostitutes to sandpaper their cocks in dungeons at the weekend while they let out the tears of pain away from the wife and kids. It has announced a Wii game called Horsez 2 and if that isn't a sign that another video game crash is no more than six months away, we don't know what is.
THE SITE'S INTRO, PUT THROUGH BABEL FISH, AS ANYTHING PUT THROUGH BABEL FISH IS INSTANTLY AMAZINGLY FUNNY:
"Gaming has many faces - and one of it is yours. Show it: Your picture loads high and shows operational readiness level! Support our on-line initiative, in order to show the public that players are completely normal humans from all social classes and not part of a dark fringe group. We reject the overall condemnation of PC and video games in the connection of acts of violence, which ignores social and personal bad states of the authors unjustified. Players stand together - for their hobby, for appropriate protection of children and young people and against material force."
THAT WASN'T FUNNY ENOUGH, SO WE TRANSLATED THAT INTO FRENCH, THEN BACK INTO ENGLISH:

Sponsor a Poo and send it (with a personal note) to Sony
By El Alcalde de Tomelloso and Cubitorah
Are we men or mice?
Are you tired of abuse?
Gamerah is, and we have decided to do something about it. We are going to show Sony that in Europe there is no humiliation without response. We are going to show them that we are not an unimportant third-rate market. A pound of flesh.
Delays, higher prices, sloppy translations, harassment of import stores, and, even worse, cheekiness. What does Gamerah say to all this? Gamerah says: NO! And the way we propose to let the evildoers at Sony know is very simple: by sponsoring plastic poos which we will send to Sony's higher echelons in Spain in one or many boxes.
Imagine: you are angry with Sony since the delay, or since they cancelled your order at play-asia, or even since the death of Dreamcast, like some resentful Sega fans in our staff. Anyway: your patience has run out. What can you do? Very simple.
1. Send us an email to email@example.com. Include your nickname and your comment/complaint to Sony (one line). Just one grievance per poo, although you can send as many poos as you like.
2. We will reply to you with a bank account number and an identification number.
3. Transfer 4 euro and include the identification number on the transfer's subject. This way we will know it is you.
4. We will attach your message to one of the fake excrements and put it, along with your nickname, in the box we will send to Sony's Spanish headquarters. Of course, we will also include a petition asking them to forward the poos to their bosses in Japan.
Some examples of what you might write:
Tonio87: For the HDMi cable.
Pacotazo: For killing Lik-Sang.
Pepoto: For having no typographical criteria.
Here is an example of what they will look like. Imagine Phil Harrison's face! Hohoho!
The rubber band is provisional.
Just remember: no direct insults or death threats. Be subtle, as in our examples. We know you can do it.
THE BOX OF JOY
SONIC GETS A CARPETING
By Michael Zorg
"Oh, do we HAVE to?" moaned Sonic, as Amy dragged him through the car park of Carpet Megastore.
"Yes, Sonic, we DO" said Amy, firmly, tugging his hand and quickening her walk.
"You've worn them all out with your constant spinning"
It was a Saturday afternoon, and Sonic was thinking he'd rather be anywhere than shopping for carpets. Not only shopping for carpets, but shopping for carpets with Amy. Amy loved shopping for carpets, heck, Amy loved shopping for anything!
Last Saturday it was ring holders, the Saturday before it was emerald stands, the Saturday before that was... something Sonic really wasn't interested in and also considered a waste of time buying.
This Saturday was carpets.
Sonic trudged along behind Amy, occasionally pretending he had an opinion on a carpet before being told it wasn't good enough and they had to carry on looking. Perhaps, later, they may have to go to another carpet store to see more carpets, said Amy, such was the lack of a suitable carpet in this shop that contained 1000 carpets.
Sonic, unusually for him, was dragging his feet and walking slowly. So slowly, in fact, that Amy had wandered off ahead of him separating the two of them.
It was Cream!
"Oh, er, hey Cream!" said Sonic, nervously glancing around to make sure Amy wasn't about. "How are you?"
"Oh, you know, bored of shopping for carpets. Mum made me come, she says the one in my bedroom is all worn out because I'm always spinning on it. How I hate shopping for carpets!"
"Yeah, carpets are stupid!" said Sonic, after once again checking that Amy wasn't within earshot.
"No, wait! Come and see what I've found!" Cream said, her eyes suddenly widening and, unbeknownst to Sonic, weeing herself slightly from being so excited.
Before he could protest, Cream grabbed Sonic by the hand and ran very fast - almost as fast as Sonic himself! - through the carpet store into a dark, deserted aisle.
Cream pointed to an old cylinder of carpet. It was grey with a blue design. It was dusty, and had probably lain there untouched since about 1992.
"The design, Sonic, look at the design!!"
Cream pulled Sonic roughly toward the carpet rack, and punched the old carpet to remove some of the dust. Sonic sneezed, waved the dust from the air and peered at the carpet.
"It's... it's ME!"
"Yes, Sonic! You're so famous and cool they made a carpet after you!"
Sonic couldn't believe his eyes. They had made a carpet after him! Probably in 1992, when he was the most famous because of Sonic 2 on the Mega Drive.
"Wow!" said Sonic, grabbing the frayed end of the carpet and yanking it hard to unfurl a fresh, clean and dust free section. "It's as good as new!"
"Yes, and so soft!" said Cream, as she unfurled loads more carpet, until carpet was covering the entire width of the aisle!
Cream stroked the carpet, then lay down on it. She rolled over onto her tummy, letting her little orange dress ride up to reveal her white knickers.
"Come here, Sonic!"
Sonic looked around nervously.
"Come on! It's all soft and like new!" giggled Cream, slipping off her orange shoes and lying back on the carpet, playfully kissing the woven Sonic image on the carpet and smiling up at the real Sonic standing there in front of her.
Sonic looked around nervously again, before smiling - with attitude! - and rolling up beside Cream on the lovely soft carpet.
"It's so soft, isn't it?" said Cream, gently, stroking the carpet and gradually moving her hand toward Sonic, then stroking Sonic's arm.
Sonic looked at Cream. "Yes, Cream, it's very soft and I..."
It was Amy.
"What the HELL are you doing with HER?!"
"Oh, Amy! It's, er, I can..." stuttered Sonic.
"I'm going home!" squealed Amy in a very angry voice indeed.
Amy then turned around and started to run at full speed - but she was so angry she didn't look where she was going and hit her head on a metal carpet rail.
Amy fell on the ground. You could tell she was dead immediately, because of the brain and stuff that had come out.
"Oh well" said Sonic.
"Oh well" said Cream.
Sonic grabbed the carpet cutting tool and cut off a length of the Sonic carpet, rolled Amy's body up in it and put it in a big trolley. They paid for the carpet - it was cheap because it was so old - and then Sonic and Cream drove in Amy's car to some cliffs and threw the carpet-wrapped body off into the sea, where it sank to the bottom and was never found.
They then went home and had sex on the threadbare carpet in Sonic's house, but they didn't notice that the carpet was threadbare because sex is better and more fun than carpets.
CREAM SCREAMS FOR ICE CREAM
By Matt Smith
"Look! It's Sonic!" shouts the innocent six-year-old girl. "Sonic and ice cream!"
Off she runs towards the blue hedgehog's arms, blissfully unaware of the approaching danger while mummy's back is turned. She can hear the sweet synthpop beats of Green Hill Zone playing in her mind. "Do do do do do do do do doooo. Do do do, Do do do, Dooo Dooo!"
But it's not over-priced, no-brand-name ice cream she's going to get. It's far, far worse than that.
"Can I have a Cornetto?" she asks the evil, evil man.
"Why certainly little girl." The evil man replies as he goes to his freezer.
"Oh what a shame", he says. "I am afraid they are all gone."
The little girl looks down at her little orange shoes and sobs.
"But if you come into my van I am sure we can find something together!" the evil man replies.
Without thinking she smiles and says "OK!"
The man opens the door. She climbs inside and at first everything seems normal. "Why don't you have a look inside the freezer?" The man suggests with a rather large grin on his face below his circular glasses and orange moustache.
The little girl is feeling uneasy. She begins to realise her mistake. She slowly walks over to the freezer and takes a look inside...
'What is this?' She thinks to herself. 'It looks like robot parts and...'
"NO!" She screams!
"MUHAHAHAHA!" The man laughs as he rips off his fake apron and hat.
"It's... It's... YOU!"
"That's right!" He bellows. "It's me, Dr Robotnik! And you have fallen right into my trap, Cream!"
"What do you want!" She shouts.
"Why, a hostage of course! With you in my clutches I know Sonic will bring the Chaos Emeralds to me!"
"You're crazy Robotnik!" Cream cries. "Sonic's gonna rescue me and stop you once and for all!"
"MUHAHAHAHA! We'll see about that!" he shouts. And with that he handcuffs her to the freezer, starts the engine and speeds off far away into the distance, his evil theme tune music menacingly playing through the ice cream van's speakers.
"Smells of 'Tolkien powder'."
"Smells of grannies."
"Oh fuck it smells of liquid."
"It smells of cocaine." (After snorting it.)
"It smells just like Tails - SHIT."
I was at E3 last week in industry guise. Trying to avoid actually doing anything to justify my flight cost and hotel bill I wandered onto the Nintendo stand and spotted Google video star Andrew Rosenblum presenting the next installment of his 'show'. He and his skinny gimp friend were bizarrely being filmed by an attractive if a little young (16 is legal in the US isn't it?) female dressed a bit like a schoolgirl... Anyway before i could get a picture of the schoolgirl they all ran off to some the Isle of Man development stand to film some blindfolded Japanese bloke playing video game music i hadn't really heard of on a bontempi keyboard, which quite frankly was a bit shit.
Anyway please find attached picture of 'Google video star' Andrew Rosenblum... perhaps you can run a behind the scenes style feature... or just post it up as one of the more bizarre stalkings by your readers.
Hey, saw your post on Sonic tattoos, and I thought I'd share my own with you.
Its of the S&K logo, which I personally regard as the greatest Sonic logo ever. Hours upon hours of my youth were spent re-playing Sonic 3 and Knuckles, so it became somewhat of a favourite.
Great site, btw.
I'm a huge Sega fan and absolutely love your site, your trip to Sega page is pretty funny and now I want a Homestar! Anyway, thought I'd show off my Sonic tattoos while I'm here so take a look at them if you're interested.
Had the idea of having four Sonics running around my leg.
THING ONE: SOME PHOTOS OF THE NEW ZEALAND XBOX 360 'LAUNCH BUS'
"New Zealand's Xbox 360 pre-launch idea. Instead of a big party we got a custom bus filled with the units they put in the shops. Twenty of them, with released games like PGR3, CoD2, DOA4, Kameo, Tiger Wood and a demo of the final build of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter."
"They also had giveaways (trucker hats, armbands, lanyards) and some chick dressed up as Joanna Dark (no photos of her)."

THING FOUR: A REINTERPRETATION OF THE 'EMILY BOOTH' MAGAZINE COVER
"Hidden message in the Emily Booth cover."
THING FIVE: MAN IN JAPAN SPOTS SEGA iDOG AND iFISH
"I spotted the now infamous Sega product Homestar in a shop in Japan today. Lo and behold, what was next to it? The Sega Toys duo of iDog and iFish. I've got no idea what they do but it's nice to see Sega catering for the iPod generation, right? Plus they were in a sale too! That makes me sad."
THING SIX: THOSE OLD PHOTOS OF GIRLS AND GAMES CONSOLES
"Just wondered what you thought about these piccies..."
THING SEVEN: EMILY BOOTH ON TV!
"Well i don't know if this is good or bad news but Miss Booth can still get some kind of televised work. She can now be found on some crappy Sky quiz channel called iplay, on channel 166 i think. Oh my surprise when her face popped up at 3 in the afternoon when i was flicking through the channels. Well its like the world has turned full circle with her back on unknown television but at least on LiveTV she nearly got her kit off!"
"No wonder she has been selling her fanny encrusted wares on Ebay, times are truly hard."
"I have enclosed some poor pics that i took with my Sony Ericsson, also it would appear that times are hard for Nipper the dog also, as he appears to have taken up a part time job outside of HMV with her."
"Hope you enjoy, sorry if it's nothing to wank over."
THING EIGHT: POPSTATION SPOTTED
"Exclusive PSP Redesign spotted!"
"This was probably not worth the soul rending effort it took to actually get the photo off of my fucking phone."
THING NINE: LARA CROFT, DESIGN LEGEND
"I received this email from the Tomb Raider mailing list. So far as I can tell, the first Tomb Raider game is a candidate for BBC Culture Show's Design Quest whatever. Not being Brit I have no idea what that is, but it may be worthy of your interest."
"'Equally important to its success was the skill with which the designers and animators at Core Design depicted its central character, Lara Croft, as a post-feminist heroine'."
"...Says the BBC site, refering to the original misshapen Lara of course."
"Also since when are videogames considered cultural?"
THING TEN: TWO SEPARATE EMAILS ABOUT GIZMONDO
On the way back from E3 last year I ended up sitting next to a Gizmondo PR. I pretended to be asleep or absorbed in my plethora of handheld consoles in order to avoid having to speak to them, but I did listen in when he was speaking to some European web journo sitting on his other side. During that conversation I found out that the PR's favourite game ever was the vertical shooter that was exclusive to Gizmondo because "all these new games are rubbish. I like them old school. Alpha Blaster (I just made up the name, I can't be bothered to remember it or look it up) is brilliant because it's old school." I also found out that his favourite game from the show was Okami. He said it was "the first game on the PS2 that I've seen that actually looks any good. I haven't liked anything else on PS2 till now."
An anonymous industry person.
Just a quick word to say I used to work at the Cheadle's office of Gizmondo and the story put forward so far is completely true.
The problem was never the people in the development studios (well apart from maybe the Swedish studios who didn't actually release or finish anything) all the ex-Warthog staff, and to be fair the studio managers as well were constantly fed reports that 'everything was fine' and that 'this is just a small mishap'. Of course if a company doesn't even talk to their employers, let alone about the state of business, then employees themselves have no way of knowing how desperately bad things are. After all the company had just signed a 14 year lease on the studio building and had invited designers around who were planning to remould the studio into the theme of a giant Gizmondo with curvy desks and floors. oohh..fancy!
I think one of the more laughable situations for me personally however was when a time came around where the company basically admitted that the people in head office had no idea what they were supposed to do ( I suppose when you fill the company with models, cars, race horses and what not it may get a tad confusing). As a result everyone in the company had to fill out a form detailing exactly what they're role was within the company and whom they were answerable too (I guess the horse was at a slight disadvantage). At this point we were assured that any staff cuts would be purely in the administrate roles at Head Office. Maybe the clever people in charge got confused, maybe they thought the Head Office was in fact in Cheadle, however the very next week the whole studio was given a months notice.
When the rumours of redundancies first surfaced the person in charge of Human Resources (I.e the person who is supposed to represent and look after the employees throughout the company...but maybe she forgot that as well) thought 'sod it' and went off on her holiday knowing full well the situation everyone was in. Not once did anyone from head office show any concern for the employees in the development studios, nor during the 'consultancy period' did they think to further 'consult' staff about what was going on (they were all too busy covering their secretary's in silly-string for Christmas cards).
All in all a interesting experience! Although I can understand how the company might have been able to convince investors at the time (being able to show them a product and a couple of games and saying 'look! we -are- making something really!') I dread to think that somehow the people responsible will move on to other projects in the future and secure even more investor money to continue their manipulative lifestyle (and maybe buy the remaining 398 Ferrari Enzos!),
Also you might be interested to know, not happy with playing the world once, rumour has it that Carl Freer is in the process of starting a new company! http://www.xeromobile.com/. (http://www.gizmondoforums.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=5469&st=0) Not sure what they are about yet however they seem to be very keen to gather investors at present. Another Gizmondo like scam I hear you say? Most likely, I suppose $3.45m salary isn't enough and the guy does still have to keep with insurance payments on his $115,662 car.
I'd prefer to stay anonymous for now thanks.

THING FIVE: SEGA TOYS 'MAKE-UP GAME FOR GIRLS' COMING TO AMERICA
"Radica, the company that makes these stand-alone joystick only titles has signed a deal with Sega."
HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 9, 2006--Radica Games Limited (NASDAQ:RADA) has announced a partnership with Sega Toys (a subsidiary of Sega(R) Corporation) to develop, manufacture and distribute Digi Makeover, one of the most anticipated toys to debut at the American International Toy Fair in New York City, February 12-15.

Digi Makeover is expected to hit retail shelves in the fall of 2006 and will retail for approximately $59.99.
According to Jim Silver, editor of Toy Wishes Magazine, Radica's Digi Makeover was one of the most talked-about products when industry experts saw it last October. "If the execution is done well and there aren't any major problems with it, I can see it being a big hit this fall," he says.
"Sega Toys continues to be a dominant force in interactive entertainment," says Pat Feely, CEO, Radica. "We're thrilled to be partnering with them and bring their innovative technology to this

See "Item 3. Key Information -- Risk Factors" in such report on Form 20-F.
THING SIX: ANOTHER ASTOUNDING COMPLAINT ABOUT THE RETRO GAMING FEATURE, ONLY IT READS SO POORLY WE SUSPECT IT MIGHT BE A FAKE (AND IF IT ISN'T A FAKE WE GENUINELY FEEL A BIT SORRY FOR THE AUTHOR)
"Your Retro Special is a defilement to 1000's of gamers world wide. To act like the old should of never existed only means that you have no respect to what brought games to what they are. BACK THEN and AT THE TIME, those games were top of the line in not only entertainment, but even technology. International Karate, along with Street FIghter 2, Mortal Konbat, and many more has given the fighting games of today a platform of exsistence. WIthout them, you may never even see your damned VF4 (another thing: VF4 is made up from the improvement of 3 other game before it. You wouldn't have VF4 without even those 3 games)."
"Games like FFVII, Sonic 2, and Driver were the cream of the corn. They were the at the top, and the pinical, or the gaming stages before all else came along. Without FFVII, or even Final Fantasy 1! There may not even be a strong base for any existence of good RPG."
"As for other poiints, sex in games was never a strong point outside of the virgin 18 year old players. Noone really cared for 1000 polygon girls as much as they did with the 200 pixel failure of Sam Fox Strip Poker. Cause they are all into real things, honestly."
"oh, and the lack of back light during the Gameboy days. This factor was to cut to damn cost. Really good for those short on cash, cause those things like the GameGear failed based on eye hazzard, and for cost. the Back Light screens of the GBA sp and DS are a invention of price reduction in the economy. If you gaming in your hands for the go that wasn't over 500 buck to have back in 1995, you'd never be bitching about the Gameboy not having a light. You'd have a flash light shoved in your mouth while under the bed sheets playing Pokemon for the 150th catch."
"For fuck sacks, you're got it made in the fucking sun with gamign to day. Respect the past, cause it's hardships gave you this golden shove that is surgecly embedded in your ass!"

THING EIGHT: A LINK TO SOME BBC RESEARCH ON 'GAMING'
"...whereby anyone who has accidently played a mobile game instead of pressing the shortcut for sending a text, or lent on the red button of their remote and played an interactive TV game in the last 6 months qualifies as a 'gamer'."
"Playing a game of any sort once a week or more makes you a heavy user."
"Sega Dreamcast is more popular than Sony PSP across the 6-35 year old age range."
"66% of 6-10 year olds have played interactive TV games in the last 6 months. This is more than Xbox, Gamecube, Dreamcast and PSP put together. And more than mobile games."
